14. Irreplaceable You

Ready for another heartbreaking romance? Irreplaceable You is both romantic and will have you sobbing by the end. These types of movies where one of the characters has a terminal illness love to play with our emotions and make us a mess by the end.

Irreplaceable You follows Abbie and Sam. They have been best friends forever and are now engaged to be married. But everything comes to a stop when Abbie is diagnosed with terminal cancer. With her death closer than she ever thought, Abbie begins to search for someone to replace her for Sam.

But along the way, she ends up making friends with people who are more focused on living than trying to replace themselves with someone new for their loved one. Through these friends, she comes to terms with her situation and that those she’s leaving behind will be okay without her.

It’s sad but also life-affirming in a way. She learns to focus on life with her new friends and Sam despite having less time left than she would like..

Irreplaceable You stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michiel Huisman, Steve Coogan, Timothy Simons, Jacki Weaver, Kate McKinnon, Brian Tyree Henry, and Christopher Walken and is on Netflix right now. Crying with the one you love can be just as romantic as anything else, right? Right???
