    Not being much for movies or TV myself, I can honestly say that there are only two movies that make me cry at some point. They are movies I always regret coming to an end and I will watch them repeatedly. They are the only movies I will sit still to watch from beginning to end.

    One is 'We Were Soldiers'. I bawled the first time I saw it (in the theater) and I have bawled every time since.

    The other I just finished watching yet again - 'Men Of Honor'. I could watch that movie repeatedly and not tire of it.

    What movie is guaranteed to cause a kleenex crisis for you?

    "Where the Red Fern Grows".
    Saw it once as a kid and will NEVER watch it again.
    I can't even bring myself to watch Ol' Yeller-ain't gonna happen-no way!

    The TV show "House". I cry everytime it comes on.



    because my wife watches it like a million times a week. I start crying when I see her reach for the remote. [​IMG]

    I don't get it.. the guys a mean crazy drug addict. She loves him! If I acted like that she'd kill me in my sleep with a #14 cast iron skillet.

    I'll share a little secret with you about the show and the reason we ladies love it-despite the fact that he's meaner than an acre of snakes...are you ready??? Hugh Laurie is HAWT! [​IMG]

    "Bang, Bang, You're Dead" (based on the play....it was SO good. It's available in parts on youtube. [​IMG] )

    And "Pay it Forward".

    I personally love movies that make me cry. What can grab my attention and could bring tears to my eyes like that is what I consider a good movie in my book.

    Edited to add..."The Lovely Bones" was a weeper, too. Book is better though.

    Hence why she said women love him [​IMG]

    Terms of Endearment, Up! (the Pixar movie), ummmmmm. . . . those are the only two I can think of at the moment. I try to stay away from sad movies, I don't like to torture myself that way. I prefer books or funny mindless movies like Legally Blonde.​
