I will admit I am not the manliest man out there, but I don’t need tissues for Hallmark commercials. However, there are some movies that make me tear up where other guys wouldn’t. While some might cost me a “Man Card,” some of them I think are a free pass. Off the top of my head:
Old Yeller - If you’ve ever had a dog this is a no brainer.
Lion King - Maybe it’s because I was younger when I saw it, but Simba trying to “wake up” Mufasa: “Dad come on, you gotta get up!”
Schindler’s List - Shouldn’t need to explain
Saving Private Ryan - Ditto
The Notebook - First admit that you saw it, then admit you at least got a lump in your throat.
Movies where it might just be me:
Up - The beginning, at least
Titanic - Couldn’t care less about Leo and Kate, but that one old couple in bed as it sinks. . .
Moulin Rouge - I don’t know why, it just makes me tear up.
So what other movies do guys get a pass on, and which ones make other guys cry?
