Here are some of the movies that make me cry the hardest...
Heidi is probably my "ugliest" cry movie. I haven't watched it in years (mostly because just thinking about it upsets me), but the scene in the beginning when Heidi is stolen from her grandfather and he has just made her a little pair of goat shoes....oh y'all. I can't even deal.
This movie is also in my top 10 list of all time favorite movies, despite the fact that it makes me cry uncontrollably. I think we can all agree that The Lion King has its sad parts, and even though I know what's coming every time, I just lose it when Simba loses his dad. And when I say lose it, I still cry as if I were losing one of my own family members. I will say, this movie ends in such an uplifting way, but I have to be wearing no mascara if this movie comes on TV. It still gets me (18 years after its release).
This is one that made me cry long before I was a teacher myself. I absolutely love it. And this one doesn't make me shed tears because it's sad, this is one that causes me to bawl my eyes out due to happiness and emotions that I obviously have no control over. At the end of the movie, when Mr. Holland has been laid off and he's leaving the school and he returns to the auditorium and all his former students are there to perform his "opus" for him? Oh my goodness. It such a sweet moment. And the only way to respond is to weep uncontrollably.
Anybody else watch this at a sleepover in middle school and feel like they were sucker punched in the stomach afterward? I certainly did. And even though it was a tearjerker, I have proceeded to watch it (and rent it from blockbuster for future sleepovers) at least a dozen more times.
This is another movie that is in my my list of all time favorites. Clint Eastwood's character goes through such a transformation in this movie. You can't help but cry as you watch.
Anyone else love this movie as a child? I remember renting this one all the time with my little sister. Eventually we stopped, probably because she got tired of my tears.
I know that Up one that makes every one teary eyed, and it's one that I remember my parents warned me against seeing. J and I rented this after it came out on DVD, and well....I felt pretty bad for my poor husband. I was INCONSOLABLE after watching this movie. A complete and utter basket case. I don't think I even need to say which part does it to me, because anyone who has seen this movie knows. Old people have always made me want to cry, and this movie was just over the top on the old people cuteness/sadness scale.
A few others that get me every time: Steel Magnolias, Bambi, One True Thing, Forrest Gump, The Land Before Time, Losing Isaiah, Man on Fire, Million Dollar Baby
I'm sure my list could go and on and if I took more time to think about this.
