Let me just put this out there already. I cry pretty easily. It's entirely possible for me to not really care for a movie and still cry at it. Here's a good example: the Freaky Friday remake starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lohan. It's not great, but still a parent struggling to connect with his/her kid just gets me, okay? I'm not made of metal people.
There are movies out there that can move people to buckets and buckets of tears. To tap into something generally or personally. You can cry for joy or cry for sorrow, but if the tears are flying, the movie deserves its place right here for Top 5 Tuesdays. So give me your Top 5 weepers. Here are mine.
1. Terms Of Endearment Not so much the dying part, but the relationship between Nicholson and McClain really got me. Especially the scene at the airport at the end.
2. Million Dollar Baby I was embarrassing during this movie, I cried so much. Not sure if this was timing or what, but I couldn't stop crying at the end of this.
3. White Christmas When the general comes into the big room and all the soldiers are back to salute him, I'm a mess.
4. Fandango Yeah, I know... what Top 5 Tuesday can't I fit this movie into? But the end of innocence is a big thing and I think this movie captured it well.
5. The Game It's a little strange that I would list this here, but when Michael Douglas discovers that it was all bullshit and everything was okay, I cried just to let out some tension. That's how effective this movie was.
