I just watched "You've got mail".

I have no idea what this says about me or my taste in movies, but I cry like a baby every time I see it.

When Meg Ryan says “I so wanted it to be you.” the water works turn on full blast.

I’m not even much of a Meg Ryan fan, but I still wind up soaking my sofa cushions.

Does this happen to anyone else, or am I the only cry-baby in the house?

I think it would probably be the latter :slight_smile:

Well, OK, to be fair, that scene, although predictable, did illicit a similar response from someone I know, although he completely denied it and claimed instead that something flew into his eye.

“Don’t cry, ShopGirl.”

So cheesy…so, so cheesy.

But that doesn’t stop me from using this line in everyday life.

And I actually do like this movie, but I never cried during it.

(I’m not one to cry during movies, but if you want to talk about unnecessarily crying: I cried during Deep Impact.)

Yep - cry, even though it’s predictable, I still cry.

But the best weepy movie is Always. When I watch that, Hubby just hands me the box of Kleenex and leaves the room.

Always…gawd, I love that movie. It just rips me to shreds every time.

And the Barbra Streisand version of A Star Is Born. Turn on the waterworks.

Wasn’t this from The Crying Game? Oh, wait. That’s “You’ve Got Male!” :smiley:

I cry everytime I see that movie too, so you’re not alone!

Though my sap-o-meter is tuned pretty high, I can hardly stand to watch that movie, much less cry! To give you an idea just how unbelievable that is, I cry at the end of Mulan when her father says, “the greatest gift and honor is having you for a daughter.” Sniff!!

KGS – <applause>

Well. I cried watching the weight-loss stories on Oprah yesterday, so perhaps I’m not the best judge…

You’d better not go near A Baby Story on TLC the, alice! Those things are a real sofa-soaker for me!

Oh, thanks for ruining it for me. And I was gonna watch it this weekend on my Beta[sup]TM[/sup] player.

Spoilers! People!

Sheesh. :smiley:

I more or less like the film but the ending just plain sucked. No tears, just screaming at the screen: “There’s a million better ways to end this film!”

To have a great Cranberries song early on but then end with that Nillson cover. Sheesh.

Script writing by commitee?

I cried when I watched the movie. I kept thinking of all the other things I could have done with that 7 dollars.

Not a big cryer but I love that movie. SO cheesy and sappy, but Hanks and Ryan are gold in this flick.

The supporting cast was incredible as well.
Coleman, Ranfolph, Kinnear, Posey, CHAPPELLE!, Stapleton, and Zahn.

I do have one question though: didn’t anyone find the nanny an odd character? Was she just a bad actress or was she supposed to play it kookie? Was it a set up somehow for what happened to Coleman’s wife.
What gives?

I’ve seen that movie, but the whole time I was watching it - I realized that I’ve seen this before.

The Shop Around the Corner

I’ve always been a sucker for an old movie - the new ones just don’t do it for me.

Ditto, lexi. The Lubitsch film burrows deep into the emotions and has a complexity in character that When Tommy Met Meggy can’t even begin to touch. Hint: If movies are forced to use Songbook Standards over and over again as emotional shortcuts, it means there really ain’t much there.

I am not alone! I am not alone!

Never bothered to sob up for You’ve Got Mail, but Mulan can get me weepy pretty easily, both with Dad’s line and Mulan’s training scene (the juxtapositioning of her training and the song “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” works very well, IMO).

No, you’re definitely not alone. Every time a “what scene makes you cry” thread comes up, that scene always gets mentioned at least twice. And usually one of those mentionings is from me, because it gets me every damn time.

And as for the OP, I’ve usually got a high schmaltz tolerance, but You’ve Got Mail just felt insulting to me. But I’m still a big fan of When Harry Met Sally… and there are parts in there that can get to me.

I didn’t like it because I thought Hanks’s character was a lying jerk who wasn’t good enough for her.

That’s what I thought too, Dr. Rieux
