Top Cry-Worthy Movies


Is there a movie that ALWAYS makes you cry . . . no matter how many times you’ve seen it?  Someone posed that question on Twitter this weekend, and it went viral.


The original poster said these four do it for him:  “Apollo 13”“Big Fish”“The Green Mile”, and “Saving Private Ryan”.  But hundreds of others added THEIR top tear-inducing flicks.



For starters, a couple celebrities weighed in.  Nancy Sinatra suggested the 1944 movie “Since You Went Away” with Shirley Temple and Claudette Colbert.



Patricia Arquette added the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born” with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand“Splendor in the Grass”“Sunrise”, and “Reds”.



Other highlights from regular people include . . .



“Cider House Rules”“The Bridges of Madison County”“The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”“Ordinary People”“Crooklyn”“Grave of the Fireflies”“Beaches”“E.T.”“My Girl”“Titanic”“Harold and Maude” . . .



The second, third, and fourth “Toy Story” movies, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”“The Notebook”“The Color Purple”“Moonlight”“12 Years a Slave”“West Side Story”“The Fault in Our Stars” . . .



“Bicentennial Man”“Up”“Terms of Endearment”“Mr. Holland’s Opus”“Schindler’s List”“Marley and Me” . . . and someone else said, quote, “Any movie that includes a dog.  Any of them.  All of them.”



Someone said, quote, “There’s something about baseball movies . . .” and another suggested “Field of Dreams” and “A League of Their Own”.



A Marvel fan added “Thor”“The Avengers”“Thor: The Dark World”“Thor: Ragnarok”“Avengers: Infinity War”, and “Avengers: Endgame”.



Someone said “Transformers”, but added, quote, “I don’t know why.”



Many of these movies were mentioned multiple times, but “Steel Magnolias” was supposedly mentioned so often that the movie started TRENDING on Twitter.
