Do they have to be stupid movies, or just movies you feel stupid crying about?

Don't forget our "weepies" primer, too, while you're at it.

I almost cried at the end of Argentosoma - it wasn't at all sad, but I knew how much I'd miss a show that said "Rock On" in almost every episode. Rock On, Ryu Sohma! Rock On, Sarg 3!

I got weepy in Secrets and Lies.

BTW, do any of you get particularly weepy on airplanes? and cry at inflight movies when the sound is off? And taped episodes of "Bewitched"? No? Me neither.

Ok, Beaches is the movie that does it for me *every* time. In fact, sometimes if stuff in my life is bothering and I feel like I need to cry but can't, I just go buy a box of kleenex and rent Beaches and cry until my face gets all red and splotchy.

I am not sure just what it is about Beaches that always gets to me. Maybe it is because it is a love story that really celebrates the platonic female bond. But, maybe not. Thelma and Louise didnt make me cry. Maybe it is the SHAMELESS heart wringing. I am sucker for that.

Maybe you've just developed a, um, what do you call it? Conditioned response. Like the guy with the bell.

No, she's ice cold. She never cries. She gets mad though, if you say "Berserk".

It's not a stupid movie, but I felt kind of stupid tearing up during the song "When She Loved Me" in Toy Story 2 - not Randy Newman's best song ever (sung by Sarah McLachlan), but it sure tugged at the heartstrings in the context of the movie. Something about being abandoned... and... >>SOB!<<

Whoops. Sorry.

As a kid, that traumatizing scene in Dumbo really made me wail. Still does.

What is it about cartoons?

Well it's not a movie and it's not really stupid, but I got a little teary eyed at the end of Cowboy Bebop.

Since I try not to watch many stupid movies, I don't have much reason to cry, unless I inadvertently waste my money on a stupid movie, in which case, I'll cry about wasting my time and money.

> Something about being abandoned... and... >>SOB!<<

I always sob during The English Patient when Almásy carries Katharine out of the cave, in
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when Chief Broom compassionately ends McMurphy's life, and in The Searchers when Ethan picks up Debbie and says, "Let's go home, Debbie."

Well, there are lotsa good movies I'll cry at, but here are two "stupid" movies where I cried (hey, I was a kid at the time!)

Star Trek 2 (when Spock is dying)
Return of the Jedi (when The Emperor was shocking Luke)

Okay, and I cried during The Sixth Sense

The only two movies that I've seen a few times and can't seem to get through without crying are Dumbo and Grave of the Fireflies

I also try my best to refrain from stupid films, yet some always sneak in. Nevertheless, although far from "stupid", the last few scenes of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" were quite lachrymose.

Ooh, how about if Almasy carries Katherine out of the cave, smothers her with a pillow and throws a fridge through a window, all to the sound of native drumbeats, then he picks up a little girl and says, "Let's go home, Debbie"? I bet that would REALLY make you cry! OOPS... did I just give away the ending?

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

*sob!* (even when hearing the Bonnie Raitt version on the radio)
