A Walk to Remember. It always makes me cry – although the book does better.

The notebook and a walk to remember. So cheesy, I know.

Although I’m not sure that’s a “good” cry so much as…a cry. But you don’t have to watch the whole movie for it.

P.S. I Love You for a good cry.  Every f’n time!!  I avoid Marley and Me because that’s bad crying… I can’t handle watching the end of that movie!  =’o(  The first 2/3 of it are hilarious though!!

What Dreams May Come, The Family Stone, One Day, Hope Floats. Anything that involves the loss of a parent or baby… I loose it. I lost my dad when I was younger so I have a softspot in my heart for that.

@ms. headphone:  The one where he tells her that she wanted to name her brother “Salt”? Yeah, I cry at that too!

 

I also watched the “Elmo” documentary and I defy anyone who says they can watch footage from Jim Henson’s funeral with the muppets singing “Just One Person.”

ooo Dear John is a good one to add to the list along with Pearl Harbor…I dated a Marine for a period of time and that hit home!

Good cry- The Blind Side. Sad cry- Green Mile. Touched cry- Forest Gump (where he asks if little Forest is smart…omg!).

Any thing military- I SOBBED at the end of Act of Valor, but so did the entire theatre, 1/2 of them clearly young military guys, so I was in good company.

And Mr.ND will never admit it, but he cries at Pearl Harbor. I’ve never seen it, so I know I’ll have to really talk him into watching it because he knows he’ll cry. 

ETA- @metalbride: Oh man, American History X. That was so rough.

Steel Magnolias or Terms of Endearment… I cry at a lot of other stuff, too. I used to cry when people got free stuff on the Sally Jesse Raphael Show…
