5 movies that make me cry

Every so often I feel like I need a good cry. But being the "tough chick" that I am, a good cry can be hard to actually make happen. Enter movies...or a really good TV show.

Movies have a way of hitting that closed off part of me and unlocking the floodgates of tears. Any time I need a good cry, I pull out the ones that have proven to be floodgate releasers and settle in. Here are 5 that start the waterworks going.

  • Life as a House...the first time I saw this one I literally cried for an hour and a half afterwards. Every time I thought I was done crying, a scene flashed through my head and it started all over again.
  • Steel Magnolias--same scene gets me every time. When Sally Fields character lashes out at her friends after the graveside scene I know the tears are coming.
  • Boys on the Side--just thinking about it starts the tears!
  • Armageddon--I think I see a theme going on here...
  • Fried Green Tomatoes--definite theme happening
What are 5 movies that make you cry?
