List suggestion the second...

Movies that make me cry...
  • Stepmom
  • Life as a House
  • Pretty much any movie about Sept 11 (recent cry fests include World Trade Center and United 93)
  • I have a vivid memory of sobbing at Free Willy, in the theater, back in the day (I was 12)
  • Ditto Lion King (I was 13)
  • Keeping with Disney, the Fox and the Hound (how is that a children's movie?)
  • Meet Joe Black
  • American History X
  • My Dog Skip
  • Old Yeller (I'm not sure why, but I think we used to watch this movie a lot)
  • Lord of the Rings movies
  • Harry Potter flicks 4 & 5(more with Cedric than Sirius...which is not true to book). I predict crying in 6, 7 & 7.5
  • Return to Me (something about the dog + David Duchovny...gets me)
This list was harder to craft than I expected. I know I cry a lot at movies...but coming up with specific movies...well, that requires memory. Something which I lack.

And, in honor of the horrific, thick, wet snow today, true story:

Me: mouth open wide, eating the snow
Passerby: (laughing) you might as well get some nutrition

As if snow has any nutritious value.

  1. Whale Rider and The Notebook are my only two cry fest movies. Last time we watched The Notebook I found myself crying just thinking about the sad scenes. It was at that point that Hubby asked if I was alright and said that if I did not get it together that we might have to turn off the movie cause I was a crazy lady.
