They include City of Angels, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Fool's Gold, In Love and War, In the Land of Women, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Dangerous, Music and Lyrics, Must Love Dogs, No Reservations, P.S. I Love You, Rumor Has It, Side Effects, The Bodyguard, The Notebook, Why Do Fools Fall in Love?, and You've Got Mail.

About Susan G. Komen for the Cure: Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.
Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $1.5 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
