5 Movies That Make Me Cry Like a Little Girl
I have a confession to make: I’m a movie crier. Yep, that’s right, an emotional movie scene will make me cry like a little girl whether it’s in the comfort of my home or in the middle of everyone at the movies (which sometimes make me which that theater lights didn’t turn back on so fast at the end of movies so I’d have time to get myself together again).
Even worst, I’m an easy crier. But while it doesn’t take much to get me to tear up, there are some movies that will make me ball, and I love them so much (I wonder if that’s something that should be worrisome).
Since not all films are equal in the cry factor for me, I thought I would put together a list of 5 movies that are at the top of my list of favorite crying movies.
I have seen E.T. too many times to count, but it just gets me every time. Only recently I caught it on TV (and of course had to watch) and by the end I was in tears.
Fun anecdote about the movie is that the very first time I watched it when I was little, I was actually scared of E.T. and my parents had to tell me that E.T. was nice for me to continue watching, but by the end I was crying because E.T. was going home. So I guess this movie has been making me cry for about 20 years, that definitely deserves a mention.
Good Will Hunting
This is one of my all time favorite movies. The story is great, the acting is amazing and of course I shed tears every time I watch it. There are a few scenes in Good Will Hunting that always get me, but the number one scene has to be the “It’s not your fault” scene. You can watch the brilliant scene in question below (and in case you’re wondering, yes I had tears in my eyes while watching that scene again).
Ladies if any of you have seen this movie, then I don’t even need to explain why this one made the list. Pretty much any Nicholas Sparks novel made into a movie is guaranteed to make you cry. And then on top of it you add Ryan Gosling, come on! Even the trailer makes me teary (which you can watch below).
Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in a dramatic musical directed by Baz Luhrmann, it’s a recipe for tears. There are a lot of moments that will make you cry in the film, but I think the last scene is sort of the heightened moment, as you can see in the video below (SPOILER WARNING: the video below features the end of the movie, so if you haven’t seen it, I wouldn’t recommend you watch it).
In America is one of the most beautiful movies I have seen. It’s like someone sat down to figure out ways to make me cry. I actually had to take a moment at the end to calm down. Djimon Hounsou gives an incredible performance and he’ll just touch your heart. And man that last scene is so brilliant… oh and yeah this would be a time when those freaking movie lights came back on way too soon, it was not a pretty sight.
So there you have it, 5 movies that make me cry like a little girl every time I watch them. But that’s just me, now I want to hear from you. Are there movies that always get to you? Make you cry/have tears in your eyes? Feel free to share in the judgement-free comments below, we promise not to tell anyone…
