I always get kind of annoyed with films that make me want to cry because I'm not really a cryer, but sometimes when I watch a film that happens to be sad I cant help getting a big lump in my throat and after Iv pulled my self together I then get annoyed, and then I refuse to watch the film a again for a long while, example I watched that film called million dollar baby staring Hillery swank and client Eastwood and it ended very sad because Hillery swanks character dies in the end of a boxing injury and her death was really sad I went from being sad to kind of p**s off because I was hoping to see a triumph over adversity, but instead the character dies, so thats one of the reasons a dont care much for tear jerkers becuse I'm a happy endings kind of movie watcher, lol, and even when I'm watching a horror film I prefer for the film to end with at least one or two survivors. So tell me do you like tear jurkers?

I remember my mother, she is a tearjerker. She loves watching love stories on tv. We know she easily cries when it’s really sad and we would tease her because she has a failing heart. My father don’t watch with her because my father doesn’t want movies or shows that always cry.

I don't know if "enjoy" is the exact word I'd use since i alway end up a sniveling mess when I watch them. But, it does seem those are the types of movies I am drawn to. I should also admit that it's not only the typical tearjearker that gets the tears flowing for me. Any type of underdog gets the victory or good guys lives happily ever after, will have me grabbing for the tissue. I'm just a big ol sap.

Oh yes, I am a tear jerker!!! When I watch any sad movie.. I will cry.. Even when they have a movie that is full of happiness.. I will shed some tears.. My heart gets broken so many times when I look at anything that makes me cry. At least I know that I have a heart! My heart will be sad, and that will make me cry. Oh, I also, love Hillary Swank. She is one of my favorite actresses. I am pretty sure that this was a good movie that you just watched. I loved the movie, Dyin to Belong.. This was a great movie!

No. Crying is for cowards and people with feelings. A true man shows no emotion at all.

Tear-jerkers an dramas aren't my favorite. I'd still prefer a romantic comedy or fantasy thriller. I'll watch it though if it looks as good as the Notebooks. i just don't like that it makes me cry. I hate being sad about fictional characters. Haha. I'd rather be entertained. I also like feeling that I've entered a new place or land with weird people or characters.

I love sad films, but not many actually make me cry! They do make me feel sad, but I'm not much of a crying person, so I won't normally actually cry at a film. I saw 'Ghost' the other day, and I cried at that, but that's the first time in a while that's happened. A film has to be pretty sad for me to be able to cry at it.

I don't mind tear jerkers, as long as they have a good ending! For instance, I just watched the movie "Something The Lord Made", and I cried, but it had a triumphant ending. It's a movie about the how heart surgery was first successful, and it was a black man who made it possible, even though people where really prejudice against blacks at that time. It had some sad stuff in it, but it was a great movie! My favorite movies to watch though are sci-fi, and I don't cry much in those. I watched the million dollar baby, and I won't ever watch it again, it had a terrible ending!

I hate watching tearjerkers because I do not want to cry. Crying just makes me feel horrible. Some people find relief in crying, I dont. Makes me all clogged up and sick feeling.

I don't watch heavy drama. Or those movies that drain my tears. I go for comedy or documentary movies. I enjoy it better. It is worth watching for me.

Not really. I also get annoyed with those kinds of movies but you really can't help them no matter how you suppress.

Yes! I even have one particular film that I know for certain will turn the taps on but nevertheless I watch it over and over again. I know how it will end and I start preparing long before the end - but I just cannot tear myself away from it There are even some that make me laugh until I cry but that's off topic

no, i don't like and i do not enjoy watching them. my principle is i want to watch to be entertained not to be disturbed or have a heavy heart after watching! i would opt for action movies or comedy but not romantic ones or serious, heavy dramas. i do not also want a sad ending. like i want the main actor or the lead characters alive in the end!. he he he... i know its a very typical story or plot at that, but that's what i really want and enjoy watching the most!

First crying is good for your health when you feel sad. It is normal. Second it is abnormal that you feel nothing when you see a sad film. Third you are perceptual and will be loved by many men. So, yes, I do.

I don't mind a good sappy movie from time to time, but most generally the ones that are supposed to be sappy and sad, don't make me get upset. The ones that are just normal ending and happy endings usually get me. I remember sitting up late with my daughter, and my husband was flipping threw the channels and he stopped on the movie sling blade. I'd never seen it before this, but he had. And there's a part in there where Billy Bob Thorton goes to the little boy and tells him he's gotta leave, and for some reason I freakin' lost it, and my husband had to pause the movie and get up and go in the other room because he was busting up laughing at me.

I love to watch tear jerkers. As a matter fof fact, one of the things m Mom and I do is to try to One-up each other with them. I will watch a good one and recommend it to her. She will watch it, then try to find one that is even more of a tear-jerker. We have gone back and forth with this for years, but not as often as the years have gone by. I told her to watch the movie Ghost, years ago, shr watched it and then recommended Sleepless In Seattle, I watched it and reommended another one to her, etc., etc,. I also enjoy the happy ending movies, as well as the action flicks and horror films.

Unlike you, I cry WAY too easy. So, a lot of movies that are not tear jerkers to others probably have me bawling. I don't want to go to a tear jerker in public, because I'm an ugly crier. I don't even like having my husband around, because a lot of times I feel like he is laughing at how sappy I am. (He didn't have anything to say at the end of "The Bucket List", though!) So, if I am going to watch a tear jerker, I want some alone time.

I love them. We all need a good cry now and then, so a good one is wonderful. I always cry in movies like You've Got Mail, The Shoppe Around the Corner, Camille, Jane Eyre, Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, and Dracula.
