I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon this past weekend, cleaning the kitchen and cooking and baking a big fresh apple pie, and watching Saving Sarah Cain DVD. Like I said in my review of this film this morning, it takes a lot to make me cry over a movie, but this one did. So did Bridge to Terabithia .

My daughter and I like to watch movies that make us cry; it's therapeutic sometimes. The one we both admit to, no matter how many times we watch it, is Steel Magnolias . Before that, it was Terms of Endearment. Yes, we both like Shirley McClain.

What movies make you cry? Don't you think it's good sometimes?

"On Golden Pond" made me cry because it seemed like nothing the daughter (Jane Fonda) did was good enough for her Dad (real life actor (Peter Fonda). The story seemed so true to life and for me it seemed to ring true of my own story. I felt like I spent my whole like trying to please my father then I married a man he didn't approve of and he in his own secret way 27 years later, still reserves a certain amount of rejection just for me. Yeah I cry like a baby when I watch that movie and listen to Jane argue with her father about not doing anything right in his eyes.

So many of them do! I'm so emotional. But since I just saw The Notebook, I'll say that one.

A few movies that make me cry, or at least get really choked up are:

1. The Goodbye Girl (1977) w/ Richard Dreyfuss & Marsha Mason
2. Murphy's Romance (1985) w/ James Garner & Sally Fields
3. Dave (1993) w/ Kevin Kline
4. Little Man Tate (1991) w/ Jodie Foster
5. Mr. Holland's Opus (1995) w/ Richard Dreyfuss
6. Phenomenom (1996) w/ John Travolta

Oh, I remember On Golden Pond. Yes, that is a good cryer too. Like you, if a movie reminds me of something in my own life, it gets to me. I think that's why the two Shirley McClain's make me cry because I have a daughter who has been sick so much of her life. It tears me apart to think I could lose her Sally Field did in Steel Magnolias.

Do you feel better after a good cry?

Of course. The original tear jerker of all time. I might have to find that one and watch it again.

3. Steel Magnolias
4. On Golden Pond
5. Beaches
6. Love Story
7. Notebook
8. The Goodbye Girl
9. Murphy's Romance
10. Dave
11. Little Man Tate
12. Mr. Holland's Opus

Any others?

This movie makes us hope we have married "that" man, right. Gosh it was a beautiful story and makes us also think that we are not mortal and that anything can happen to us.

I saw Love Story when I was a teenager, and of course so did all the other girls I knew, we all had plenty to talk about and we were all looking for Ryan O'Neil to date!!

If I had to vote for my #1 tear jerker it would be "The Goodbye Girl", but I must admit I always get teary-eyed at the end of "Dave". Every time I watch it tears come to my eyes at the End when the big Secret Service man turns to Dave as he says goodbye and tells Dave "I would have taken a bullet for you".

Hey, I've been out of touch for a few days. Looks like some new flicks made the list!

Oh, yes, that's why Terms of Endearment is high on my list for runny mascara movies. I don't think I added "The Philadelphia Story" with Tom Hanks. Yes, I know, I'm a Christian, but how can one not watch this movie and not break down? And who can say one bad thing about Tom Hanks? He is one of the best actors ever!

I've never seen August Rush. What's it about? I might need to get it on DVD for the weekend.

You must see it. I don't want to give much away. A boy is separated from his parents who are musicians. He inherits their musical ability and the music leads him on a fantastic journey.....

I'm gonna see if I can get it right now! Now that I think about it, I saw something about it but I can remember what it was. The story line is intriguing. Thanks. b.

A lot of movies makes me cry. I like crying except of course the reasons are because I am in pain or when everything is awful.

I love the Jane Austen movies. Persuasion always makes me cry, especially the scene where the heroine is thinking about her past love having moved on and loving a new family.
