Movies That Make You Cry

imageO.K. this has nothing to do with quilting, but until I get back from my vacation, I plan to blog on something so this is it.

Today I went to work.  Yes, I know I am on vacation, put since I had to run downtown today, I stopped by the office to take care of some issues.  I was only there for 3 hours and off to the Old Post Office for my pedicure and eyebrow arch.  Got to look good for  my Texas trip.


That is a great pedicure right?  Anyways, I got home about 12:30, and thought I get started and iron my clothes and get them packed.  Why do we iron our clothes, and by the time we get to were we are going, we have to iron them again, o.k. touch them up?  After ironing only three things, I decided to hell with it pack them and iron as I go.  That was because I was sitting in front of the T.V. watch a tear jerker of a movie.


Oh, yah, Stepmom, with Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris.  It was a great movie and the song keeps playing in my head, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

As I was crying my eyes out watching this movie, I thought of other movies that I can watch any time and still cry.


Yes, the all time cry your eyes out movie “An Affair to Remember” with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.  The scene when Deborah Kerr is on the coach and Cary Grant realizes she can’t walk.  “If you can paint, then I can walk.”  Tell me you did not boil your eyes out crying,  I have to keep tissue on the ready for this movie.


“Brian’s Song, with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams.  It was a heartbreaking movie to watch, but man oh man, I love James and Billy Dee.  I hear the theme song to this and it is all over.


The last of the tear jerkers is Steel Magnolias, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLain, Olympia Dukakis, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts.  No one, but NO ONE can make you cry like Sally Field.  I seen her in movies crying and I cry right along with her.  It was a funny movie and heartfelt.  Olympia Dukakis had me rolling on the floor during the Funeral and Sally was crying and she said, “Hit Weezer”.  The crying stopped and I laugh.

I am not turning into a movie critic.  What movies make you cry every time to see them?

Crying At The Movies – The Slow Quilter (Felicia)


  1. Enjoy your trip to Texas. "An Affair to Remember" is an all time favorite, and I cry when I watch movies.
    I went to see the movie "The Planes" by Disney and I cried. I just saw the movie Quartet and I bald.

  2. Cute toes! Nothing wrong with spending the evening with a movie, a bowl of popcorn and a box of tissues ... :) May you have a safe and happy ... and well pressed ... vacation!

  3. Those movies are really great. I love to watch them over and over again. Two other movies that I couldn't get enough of was The Bodyguard with Kelvin Costner and The Tourist with Johnny Depp. I just LOVE those movies.
    Love the toe nails. Very pretty. I hope you enjoy your trip.

  4. I cry every time I watch step mom. I also get a cry out of You've got Mail and My Girl

  5. I cry when I watch all the above mentioned movies...no matter how many times I watch them. I cry even before the tear-jerker scenes because I know what's going to happen! The movie "All Mine to Give", 1957 starring Glynis Johns is another that should be added to the above list. If you have good relations with your siblings you will cry all day (as I did) when thinking about the choices that had to be made by the twelve year old boy in this movie....and then I found out the movie was based on a true life story...and then I cried some more. I couldn't even talk about the movie for days. I'll leave you with one of the last lines from the movie and hope that you will find it and watch it then love your siblings even more..."Please, ma'am, I was wondering if you'd care to have my sister."

  6. You want a wonderful movie to cry through? Try Man in the Moon with Reese Witherspoon. It was her first movie when she was 13. It is a coming to age movie and it is wonderful! Roger Ebert compared it to a puzzle where each piece fits just beautifully. You really need to find and watch it....you will never be the same!

  7. I think you hit all the best ones. I'm a sucker for a sad movie - I cry at anything! It's a good thing they took Lassie off tv or I'd be a slobbering mess every day!
