Heartwarming Movies. The Morning After.

Have you ever seen a film that seemed like a heartwarming / triumph-of-the-human-soul / love-wins-in-the-end / good-guy-wins type of movie, but the morning after, you realize it convinced you to root for something you otherwise wouldn't? [without the help of tear-jerking music and well-placed one-liners?] What was the movie? I want examples I can watch!

My example [and please don't make fun of me for this] -- I watched "Definitely, Maybe" and was warmed to the core at the end of it, but woke up the next day realizing I had been convinced that divorce was easy and the only sensible answer. I usually don't believe that, and I was surprised at how easily I was duped into it.
Have you ever had this experience? What was the movie? What did it lead you to believe that you questioned later?
