A mention on another thread regarding "It's a Wonderful Life" got me thinking about all the other films I like to have a seriously good chocolate, wrappy rug and blub to. It's a Wonderful Life is one of my all time favourites, as is Little Women and Dark Victory ( Heavens, how that ages me!).My daughter and I award them tissue ( Kleenex?) ratings from none to a box and half.Some are so over the top they get giggle ratings instead.So do you have any candidates ans what would you rate them on the above scale so I know what to get out of the video store next?

An ex-girlfriend of mine had the same idea, though she awarded them wads (how many wads of Kleenex would be on the floor afterwards). This got us into a discussion of pornography, but the idea was the same....

As I recall, her top 5 were:

The English Patient

Stella Dallas (Barbara Stanwyck on the street outside her daughter's wedding was a favourite)

Camille (the last 5 minutes)

Brief Encounter (surprise)

and Roman Holiday (the last 10 minutes were her all time peak). She used to put in on just to have a good cry.

Bridges of Madison County. I resisted seeing it for the longest time but it was on TV one night when I couldn't get the VCR to work, so I said, what the hell. I absolutely bawled like a sick calf.

I cried all the way through The Patriot. And I don't mean whimpering, sniffling crying - I mean sobbing. It just made me think about too many people and too many things. Didn't stop crying till I got home.

don't laugh, but I also cried at Dumbo. And Pinnochio.

But my fave line from It's a Wonderful Life, that gets me EVERY TIME, and will have me reach for a Kleenex even as I type this - "To my brother George Bailey - the richest man in town."

(scuse me)

"The Biscuit Eater" -- a boy-and-his-dog movie from, I think, the '30s. Hard to find, but a really high hankie rating.

"Gone With the Wind" (the book was better, though) "To Kill A Mockingbird" (ditto)

Robin & Marian..when she poisons him, and he realizes that he would never have another day like this one. Then, he takes his bow and shoots an arrow, asking John to bury them where it lands. I always think of the line from the song,Lonesome Robin.. "and you're wondering what Marian found to do..thats better than coming to see you one last time"..and then,..."and where ever your arrow falls to the ground, we'll lay Lonesome Robin down one last time..no more Robin no more..your outlaw days are over" ..it's a deadly combination. When I was 9 I saw Lassie Come Home..having just lost my dog it tore me up. Then, when I was over 50, I saw it again, some things never change.

A few of my favourite weepies (moments):

The return of Natasha to Andrei in the BBC War and Peace.

"Les Enfants du Paradis" is terribly sad all the way through -- botched loves and lives.

"Titanic" was a film that I was impervious to, surely one of the worst scripts ever, but the icy scene in the boats when DiCaprio drifts down out of sight is quite stunning. Nothing to cry about, but an incredible piece of cinema. I would love to have a copy just of those two minutes.

The last 10 minutes of "Roman Holiday"! yours, Peter T.

This was my all time record-10 tissues-who knows the name. Lana Turner befriends a black woman & her daughter,they struggle together thru poverty. Lana becomes big movie star, while her friends daughter is passing for white. When her Momma dies she follows the funeral procession calling Momma,Momma. Racked with guilt for her treatment of Momma. I think Edna Ferber wrote it.

Karen and I have quite a few and every now and again another pops up. Many have been mentioned here, but, uh..................

We have gotten out of the New Year's Eve habit and now we go somewhere nice for an early dinner then sit around all night watching movies we've rented. A few years back we came home, loaded up the snacks and camped on the couch prepared to watch two blockbusters that had just been released to videotape and we had not yet seen. A nice fire in the fireplace, two people in love, a new year approaching...........what a happy scene.

Now I dunno' what the hell we were thinking about when we rented these two, I mean we knew the plot lines........I guess it was just the chance to see two major hits while cuddled up on a cold New Year's Eve........whatever.......But let me give you all a piece of advice----Do NOT watch Philadelphia followed by Schindler's List in the same night. Bummer......

The Ballad Of Cable Hogue. I introduced a girlfriend to it one night several years ago. The phone rang just before the end. I went into the other room to get it. As I talked I looked back into the living room to see her sitting on the couch sobbing great gouts of tears as she watched the end of the movie. It always gets me the same way.

"The Color of Paradise" -- it's subtitled, from Iran, and the end had me weeping silently. I liked the directors' earlier film, "Children of Heaven" too, but it's not a tearjerker (just thought provoking!)

I cry whenever I watch "1776" but only during one song.

"Old Yeller"
"The Earthling"
"Greyfriars' Bobby"

I cried watching "Beaches" and "The Shootist" in the theater, but I've not seen either movie since, so I don't know if it was just that I was young and gullible.

"How Green Was My Valley." For a number of reasons. My grandfather and his brothers who were coal miners. The Welsh choral singing. Just watched it today with my six year old son. Which reminds me of another..."Into The West." And "The Secret Of Roan Inish." And "The Education Of Little Tree." Actually doesn't take much right now. My cat (a friend of thirteen years) died two weeks ago today and my wife told me today she wishes I'd die too. Happy Holidays.

"The English Patient" - the bit where he's carrying her from the plane crash to the Cave of Swimmers, and comments that she's wearing the thimble he gave her, and she says she always wears it because she's always loved him, and then his face crumples and he starts crying and then I start crying and then my Other Half snorts derisively and mutters something about there not being enough dinosaurs in the film (his mark of a good movie).

Oh yes, the first Incredible Journey. That's another bawl-like-a-sick-calf movie.

Iron Will is another one that gets me, but not because it's sad.

Of course, Old Yeller. How the hell could I forget that?! I have my own copy.

I cried at Terms of Endearment, too, although I didn't care for the movie all that much.

Lonesome Dove, if you can sit through the whole six hours.

Casablanca never made me cry that I remember.

I just re-saw "Sophie's Choice" for the first time since its original release. Choked me up -- my wife, too (but she cries at commercials). It's hard to think of a more devastating moment in cinema than the one when Sophie has to choose which of her children will live.

The Joy Luck Club and The Color Purple - both I saw when I probably oughtn't to have given what was going on in my life at the time. In both, I teared up early, started weeping quietly about a third of the way through, crying hard about half-way through, sobbing uncontrollably before the end, so that by the time the movie ended I had practically wilted into an ocean of tears. In both cases, I didn't stop crying for close to an hour after the movie. Whew. Nowadays, I do still cry at happy endings, especially when the movie seems likely to be tragic. But take a movie like Niagara Niagara - great film, riveting, sad - and I didn't cry. Another saving grace is killing off a major character, like in Copycat. Do that and I can get through even a theoretical tear-jerker undampened.

And before you ask, YES I am in therapy (*BG*)!

I wonder what it is about The English Patient? You either love it and think it was extremely moving, or you think it was the biggest piece of toss ever made.

I hated it. None of the characters interested me in the slightest and it bored me to a slow painful death. I was watching it with my brother and his wife, on video. After about 1 hour into the film, my sister in law looked around the room and asked "Is ANYBODY enjoying this???". We all shook our heads slowly with pained expressions on our faces.

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode about The English Patient where everyone except Elaine loved it and she just couldn't comprehend why?

I couldn't cope with the ridiculous parts of The English Patient -- the most hilarious being the fact that the chick would be dead in a cave in the desert and she would be there intact and untouched when he got back three months latere. As if there were no bugs or scavenging animals anywhere in North Africa. I mean really. Now if he had found her a disgusting mess, and still have carried her off to his plane, then I could have gotten serious about it -- but they were too cowardly.
