When was the last time you cried like a baby when watching a film in the cinema?
I remember having to walk out of Born Free when I was a kid because I was crying so much I was echoeing around the cinema, my mum was so embarrassed! So, what film made you blub and show you up? And what did you do, walk out or sit through it sniffing into your hankie!
Gosh..I can only remember the last time I went to the cinema..it was eight years ago, with my son and his friend. The film was "The day after tomorrow".
There are movies that make me cry again and again, no matter how many times I have seen them..
I can't remember the name of the film name..I was in college. It was about cryogenics. The woman was ill with leukemia. She agreed to be frozen because her husband assured her that he would be there when she wakes up.
It was science fiction but more of love, loyalty, tenacity of spirit, more than anything. I cried..a lot..
The last time I cried at the theater was when I saw "Toy Story 3". It wasn't sobbing though, just a few tears. I full out bawled when I saw "Marley & Me". My friends were so embarrassed but I stayed.
Thanks Victoria, just a few tears? lol! and you stayed after your friends left, I bet that drove them mad! haha! thanks for answering
Oh! Toy Story 3 made me cry, when Woody and the Gang were holding on together thinking its the end of them as the fire engulfs all the trash, plus the last part when Andy parted from Wood. Sorry Nell, i know you haven't watched it.
Nell, there have been a few: When I was a child, I bawled when Bambi's mother got shot; I cried like a baby in "The Shaggy Dog," and couldn't stop crying in "Born Free." As a teenager, I saw the movie "Misunderstood," and probably needed a box of tissues - could not stop crying - it struck a deep nerve in me! I can never walk out of a movie... but these days, my crying has become silent. I was researching film clips for an article and saw a dancer who was SO beautiful and the dancing SO exquisite, that I started heaving like.... like.... a cat that has to upchuck! Weird thing is that it made me bawl.... with no tears!
As a child, during WWII, there were many war pictures that absolutely destroyed me as families lived that war 24/7 and it was nearly a way of life (even for small children).. The one I remember most vividly is "God Is My Co-Pilot." I cried my way through that film every time I saw it -- and having recently revisited it did the same thing all over again. I'm particularly susceptible to any film involving animals, their death or injury -- I immediately turn into Niagra Falls and continue until I'm able to divert my thinking and get it off my mind. These reactions are rather strange for me as I'm not a "crier" by nature and have always considered myself as having good self-control -- obviously not!
Angela Blair, your comments really touch my heart! Like you, I can't stand any death or suffering or injury to animals... I just can't. That reminds me that I also bawled my way through "The Incredible Journey!"
Hi Angela, yes me too with the animals, I can watch films when people get hurt, but not animals, even though I know the animals are acting too!
I actually have only cried a few times while watching a movie in the cinema. But there is a recent movie I teared up in, Brave. I thought of my mom and I at the end of the movie.
I do cry though when I watch movies, but usually when I'm curled up my couch at home.
Unfortunately I don't get to the cinema very often anymore. As a child I sure remember crying when I watched "Old Yeller". I fell in love with that dog. As a teenager I saw "Mein Kampf" and that made me cry also. There have been a few as an adult, but the ones I saw when I was younger stand out more in my mind.
Toy Story 3 was the last time it rained from eyes in a theatre; however, when I watch Kramer Vs Kramer, I get so emotional at the thought of not being able to be regularly present in my daughters lives. The great thing about that film is that it ends on a cheery note.
when i was young titanic made me cry.hehe..i also cried when the staring actor of action movies died.i as a big fan of chuck noris back then
Myself, I've never found the need to cry during a movie. I was at Star Trek 10 or something (can't remember which one exactly), and the guy sitting next to me fell into his gf's lap when Data died and started weeping. That was pretty epic. =-P
As a child growing up in the 80s, movies such as E.T. and Stand By Me made me cry..Hmm there's another one though, its Forever Young with Mel Gibson in it.
Oh yes Jolinabetts,
I forgot that one. Forever young and Tequilla sunrise made me cry. At that time I was a die hard Mel Gibson fan. Something about the wild blue eyes, wild hair and wild moves struck a chord.
I watched Forever Young last week, and yes it made me cry!
@Weavesandbraids : I know what you mean! Mel Gibson is such a good actor, his deep blue eyes are so expressive. Tequila Sunrise is a good movie too, How come they don't make such good movies nowaydays?
Nell, for me its The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
The matter of fact way he lived with his strange anomaly, and the way he accepted the father who threw him away made tears roll down my cheeks.
Then at the end when his love (forgot her name) had to look after him as he descended into babyhood made me weep. I just cried and cried. They just lived on accepting the strangest and craziest events.
Funny thing is when I watched it at home about a year later, I still cried. and I don't cry too often (even at funerals)
Hi, Oh yes I had forgotten Benjamin Button! it was sad at the end, I remember now, thanks!
@NellRose: Benjamin Button is so sad, i better watch it again!
@weavesandbraids: Anymore recommendations for a good tearjerker movie?
A few months ago when Titanic was re-relased, in 3d no less. It made me cry when it first came out ages ago and it made me cry just as much this second time around. I am talking full on heaving sighs and hiccup cry. Good grief.
LOve story was the I cried at, It as in the 70"s. Steel magnolias was one of the best.I even cried at forrest gump. The lion king. They were all a kong time, .
I don't normally cry in theatres because I know I am a baller so I tend to stick to comedies. The last time I cried in a theatre was when Rue died in Hunger Games. It was not really even her death, but it was more her father's grief.
every time i see a love story or sappy film i cry just softhearted i guess but im glad my world hasn't hardened my heart,thats what my mom said she always loved about me!!!
In actuality, there are quite a few to mention. I can name a few of the top of my head: "Don't Cry, It's Only Thunder" (Vietnam War film about an orphange being blown up and what to do with the children. "It's My Party", starring Eric Roberts, a gay man in his final hours dying from A.I.D.S. and getting things straight with everybody, but hands down, the winner of major water works for me is, Richard Gere's "Hachiko: A Dog's Story".....dear Lawd....tissue please......

When was the last time you cried?I was talking to a gentleman yesterday and I posed this question. He could not even remember the last time he'd shed a tear. If you are one of those people who rarely cries,...
