Buzz In: What "Tearjerkers" Have Failed to Jerk Your Tears?



Having read Jodi Picoult's novel My Sister's Keeper, I am going to see the movie this week fully prepared to leave with puffy eyes and a fistful of soggy tissues. But then again, what if I don't cry?

Have you ever anticipated crying at a "tearjerker" movie so much that you aren't moved at all? I had about six people tell me I would "bawl my eyes out" at A Walk to Remember, but that movie left me cold and most certainly dry-eyed. And a friend of mine told me that the first time she watched Beaches, it didn't affect her at all — perhaps because she'd had so many people assure her of her future weepy reaction to it.

Have you ever watched a supposed tearjerker and failed to see what all the fuss was about (literally)?
