Tear Jerkers

My dad sent a newspaper clipping that listed the readers' top-ten tear jerker movies:

1.  Old Yeller
2.  Bambi
3.  The Notebook
4.  The Green Mile
5.  The Champ
6.  Life Is Beautiful
7.  The Color Purple
8.  Steel Magnolias
9.  Terms of Endearment
10. Beaches

To this list we have added:

1.  E.T.
2.  My Life
3.  Return to Me
4.  Charly

Of all of these, I'd have to say the three that made me cry the most were Charly, My Life, and Beaches.  I haven't seen Terms of Endearment, but I've seen all the others.

Cast your votes for top three.

Steel Magnolias is by and far THE saddest movie I have ever seen. So that is # 1 for me. From that list #2 would be Terms of Endearment (YOU MUST SEE THIS...when you want to cry your eyes out!) and # 3 would be The Champ. It has been a long time so I cannot really remember it but I remember crying watching "Where the Red Fern Grows" too??? Anyway, good list! When I am needing to "get it all outta my system" I will refer back to it :)

Okay, so this isn't on your list, but I sobbed through The Pursuit of Happyness. I told Jim we needed to go home and watch a sitcom.

FIrst, that Josh Groban song always gets me!

Terms of Endearment slays me; Steel Magnolias leaves me puffy eyed. And I am dating myself, but "Brian's Song" makes me cry through the whole movie!
