Flims that make you blub

Thinking on the fuss over this new Toy Story film,

BBC News - Twenty films that make men cry

Yes, you ruffy tuffy dry eyed blokes, there is a film out there that caused 'something in my eye'. What film?

I haven't seen Toy Story 1, 2 or 3, but 'The Dream Team'... the bit where Christopher Lloyd shakes his little daughters hand instead of giving her a hug, because he was such an introvert, it got me 'right there'



Come on, don't tell me you have never had a watery eye, a wobbly bottom lip or swallowy throat at least once in your life

Has to be Field of Dreams
The part where he speaks to the ghost of his late father and says
'Want to play some catch Dad '
Cracks me up every time

Went to see Toy Story 3 at the local IMAX at the weekend, and I did seem to suffer some sort of eye irritation at around the time that many male viewers have reported. Good film though.

I seemed to be similarly afflicted in ET years ago. Fortunately with Marley & Me forewarned is forearmed, and when Mrs CP and CP jr watched it on TV I found I had an urgent task in the garage needed completing and missed the last 30 minutes or so. Having a very similar dog may or may not have been coincidental!

The English Patient - when I realised I'd actually paid money to waste over two hours of my life which I'd never get back!

Forrest Gump. I must have watched this film hundreds of times (it is my favorite) and the part where Forrest is talking to his newly deceased wife (Jenny) buried under the tree always causes some eye moisture to trickle down my cheek.

Anything that came from Ealing Studios with John Mills ( in particular ) and all the rest of the luvvies at the time doing their stereotype impressions in the name of "acting".......not tears of emotion however.....just desperation as to how useless and patronising they were.

So I guess Ice Cold in Alex doesnt come in your top 10 films of all time then, Krystal? Certainly up there with the best in mine!

What interests me about this is the clear distinction between a male and female 'weepie'. I can sit through the most execrable sentimental nonsense quite rightly unmoved (Did someone mention 'The English Patient?) whilst Mrs C has the waterworks firewalled, yet, she and every other female will sit quite impassive while Jenny Agutter cries 'Daddy, my Daddy!' in the Railway Children, and every Daddy beyond a certain age in the house does a gulp. It seems that there are two, three or so themes that are reliably guaranteed to pluck at the otherwise stony male psyche.

The Ealing comedies are widely revered as a golden period in British cinema. Why would anyone dislike them with such vitriol?

Some people I'll never understand, nor want to.
