Romantic/Tear Jerker Movies That Make You Cry

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I just finished watching the movie The Notebook, and it reminded me of other "girly" flicks that made me cry.


Sommersby
The Love Letter
Somewhere In Time
Love Story
Ghost

I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can think of for now.

Which "girly" flicks turned your waterworks on?

Hmmm, I don't know if they'd be exactly classified as girly flicks, but the only 4 movies that have ever made me cry are: My Girl, The Last of the Mohicans, and Fox and the Hound, yes, the animated Disney movie the ultimate tear-jerker was What Dreams May Come, I cried for a half hour after that movie was over, and not sniffles either, deep, wracking sobs

Oh my lord...how long do you have?? Remember, I'm the one that cries at hallmark commercials!

First ones that come to mind...

When Harry Met Sally
Pretty Woman
Gone With The Wind
Bambi (at the end, not when mom dies)
Beauty and the Beast
Anything Disney (especially with animals)

The Last Unicorn
Titanic

Heck, I cry almost every episode of "Ghost Whisper" on TV. Crying is good for the soul.

I'm sure other people are going to post other movies that I have cried to!

For sure P.S. I love you I was an emotional wreck during it.
My Girl
Titanic

I don't really get into the girlie movies so it's hard for me to single some out.

The way we were. Untamed Heart.


I agree about the notebook.....gets me every time.

Not all these are "girly" flicks but they made me cry:



Old Yeller
Pure Country
Jerry Maguire
Simon Birch (cried forever after this movie)
Titanic
The Bucket List
The Green Mile
The Lion King
Untamed Heart

I don't usually cry during "romantic" movies. But I will cry during sad ones. There were parts of all 3 Lord of the Rings movies that had me bawling my eyes out. Some happy scenes, some sad ones.

I had forgotten about that one.

Titanic was another one. So was The Rose, Phenomenon, Same Time, Next Year.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest isn't really a girly flick, but I bawl my head off every time at the end of that movie. There are a few parts in Forrest Gump that get to me, too.

I just remembered: Steel Magnolia's!!

"The Lake House" had me crying recently. I hadn't seen that movie before and my hubby downloaded it for me one afternoon recently when I had to spend the day in bed ... "What Dreams May Come" is one that can always be counted upon to make me cry no matter how many times I see it.

But the ultimate tear-jerker in my house is now and always has been "Gone With The Wind".

Old Yeller- I don't even watch the movie
The Champ

Titanic makes me cry everytime!

"The land before time" makes me cry when the momma dinasour dies in the beginning!
post #13 of 47
The Fox and the Hound and Black Beauty are awful for me.

There aren't many films with people in that make me cry, tbh.

No kidding! It was on an HD channel recently and I was watching it, crying hard, and my husband comes out and says, "Honey! What's wrong??" I couldn't even talk, I just pointed to the TV and he said, "Oh. Well, warn me next time will ya?"

The Lion King, definitely, and Bambi.

They never used to bother me but now romantic or sad movies make me cry every time I'm such a big baby!

Where the Red Fern grows is so sad. I cried when I watched the movie and I cried even harder when I read the book.

Old Yeller is also on the list of movies I can't watch

Titanic is very sad, but I can't see why my sister had to watch it like 5 times. I knew what would happen before it started and still cried at the end...

Romeo and Juliet makes me cry, so does Hamlet

I have never seen the movie but if it is anything like the book I would bawl my eyes out. I get choked up just thinking about the ending. My go to book when I need a good cry.

My Life with Micheal Keaton
The English Patient
When a Man Loves a Woman

It doesn't take much to get me crying. I'm trying to remember what I was watching last week that had me just about sobbing. Whatever it was, hit me like a ton of bricks, wham. Maybe that's why I'm blocking it out

One movie I did NOT cry during was Titanic. I guess I'm one of the few people who thought that movie was a terrible waste of time.

"You've Got Mail." When Tom Hanks comes walking up the path at the end, I just dissolve into a little puddle of tears.

"P.S. I love you"

I cried almost the whole movie! And, I'm not usually much of a crier.

Also, "The Notebook"

No, you're not the only one.
I thought that movie was awful!

My list would include and some aren't girly movies.
"The Green Mile"
"Million Dollar Baby"
"Monster"..I know, but I couldn't help myself!
"The Lion King"
"Legends Of The Fall"...in the end when Brad Pitt turns to Aiden Quinn and says...I'm sure this isn't word for word..."I'd like you to look after my Children" and Aiden Quinn says "Brother, it would be an honor"...that gets me every single time.
"Ghost" and not when he dies in the beginning, but when his ghost leaves.

You and me both. We ought to share a sofa and a box of tissues! I've watched that film times, know just about the entire script and still cry. I was watching it the other night and can think of about 4 separate points (including the walking up the path at the end and Meg Ryan saying that she hoped it would be him) where I ended up in tears.

I rarely cry at sappy movies. I'm just not a crier. But one movie I did cry, and through almost the whole thing, was Eight Below. I was a bawling baby during that movie.

I didn't cry during Titanic either. Everyone who saw it before me said that you would definitely cry. And I definitely didn't.

Oh gosh. Tears don't begin to cover it. That movie just completely breaks the heart, and it stays broken.

I always cry Movies and tv make me cry. The latest movie that made me cry was Definitely, Maybe. Josh was here and we watched it together and he was leaving the next morning...so I dissolved into an emotional wreck right at the end.

Well I dont really cry but the first time I watched
Jane Eyre (the Masterpiece Theatre version with Toby Stephens)
I sniffled a bit. (BTW, fantastic movie!)
And I really cried when I watched A Room With A View (again the MT version, tragic ending, dont watch it)

I am not really big on weepy movies......however one I did find quite entertaining was Dangerous Liaisons.

Tombstone when Doc Holliday died. I cried like a baby, I really liked Doc.

I completely agree with what has been said about the Green Mile. I cry at several parts in the movie, and several parts in the book. Awful. Mesmerizing.
Forrest Gump still gets me, especially when his momma is dying, and when he is talking to Jenny's grave
2 that I havn't seen mentioned here that are absolutely amazing movies
The Bridges of Madison County
and
The Spitfire Grill
I need a box of kleenex at hand EVERY time I watch one of those 4 movies (and I keep watching, theyre just so good)

Oh yes, I forgot about the Green Mile, I cried a river over that one.
