I've seen nine of them. I don't recall crying at any of them. Maybe Brian's Song. And I will admit that I've cried at some sappy scenes. Just not the ones of these I've seen.

Bill, I'll be very surprised if anyone on this list was moved to tears by LOVE ACTUALLY or nearly any of the other 20 titles -- except maybe from remorse at 10 bucks and two hours gone from their lives forever.

I will admit that I choke up when John Wayne lifts Natalie Wood at the end of THE SEARCHERS and says, "Let's go home, Debbie."

Bill Crider said...

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss ten bucks good-bye.

I get choked up at that scene, too, Fred.

Bill Crider said...

I have to admit that BRIAN'S SONG got to me. I even read the book.

Richard Heft said...

Make it three votes for "Let's go home, Debbie." And I'll throw in a vote for CITY LIGHTS: "Yes, I can see now."

Who can remain untouched by the battle of the national anthems in "Casablanca"? Besides me, that is.

Any guy who admits to sitting through "Terms of Endearment" and "Love Actually" deserves to cry.

Good to see "Old Yeller" on the list, even if it isn't really a tear-jerker so much as a boy becoming man story.

As I scrolled down the list, I kept waiting for Field of Dreams to show up. All those other sports movies such as Million Dollar Baby, Rocky and The Natural, but no Field of Dreams. Forget it.

Seen seven, cried over four. Not a man. Schindler's List, definitely. Love Actually? Hugh Grant as prime minister and his girlfriend were the least appealing couple.

This is effing ridiculous. remind me never to find a date on eharmony. unless i suffer a major brain injury and 99% of it winds up in a street drain. then I might find someone compatible.
