One viewer affectionately wrote after finishing the rom-com: "this scene gets my everything, my purple heart, soul, mind, EVERYTHING !!! [sic]"
"These two scenes from Purple Hearts were literally so beautiful in ways I cannot explain," another fan posted, assuring us all that this film is definitely a tear-jerker.
Other users have been posting their favourite quotes under screenshots of the movie – and we can safely say there are many swoon-worthy lines of dialogue in Purple Hearts!
