What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Tearjerker Movies

What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Tearjerker Movies

There are many things that make me cry in movies, and some of them are just weird: applause, gospel music, truthful mother-daughter moments, sweet daddy-daughter moments... the list goes on. So for last week's Buzzworthy challenge, I wanted to find out which tearjerker movies you turn to for a good cry.

Like me, you guys seem to get choked up about some strange stuff, but I loved the variety of movies you bookmarked, from classic cry-fests to utter surprises. Here are my favorite Buzzworthy picks from BuzzSugar readers. Thanks for playing!

The Way We Were, bookmarked by JennyJen, who admits that just thinking about the movie could make her cry right now.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, bookmarked by Missyosigirl. This choice puzzled me until I read her explanation: "I don't know why this movie makes me cry... It's just that the realization of how good a relationship starts even though it's currently all f-ed up."

Terms of Endearment, bookmarked by Linda McP. I had to include this one: Not only is it horribly depressing but it's a transcendently good movie.

To see three more good tearjerkers,

Little Women, bookmarked by WhiplashGirlchild. Poor little Beth is right.

Hilary and Jackie, bookmarked by Carsandparties, who calls this movie about two sisters "totally devastating."

Stepmom, bookmarked by Swwonder.

I really enjoyed a walk to remember. Shane West's character in the movie is such a romantic. <3 “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping” - Bo Derek

The movie "My Life" with Nicole Kidman and Michale Keaton makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME! I definitely recommend it if you're in the mood for a good cry!

A totally different movie, but Simon Birch made me bawl. I love it though. ------------------------------------------------------ "If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate" Elbert Hubbard
