I watch that movie every year w/o tearing up, it doesn't really affect me.
I have to admit though, I did tear up at the end of Terminator 2...

oy...

i choked up when I saw it years ago... its on like every five minutes.

However, the message is corny but true: you don't know what you've got 'till it's gone.

That is funny. That would be the script if Tarentino remade the flick.

White Christmas is my favorite x-mas movie. I cry everytime the General walks in, in his uniform.
Atenn hut! "We'll follow the Ol' man were ever he wants to go" I start weeping. And of course my sister and I always did "Sisters"

I love "Its a Wonderful Life" I cry everytime. I have the first 2 series of ceramic buildings and accessories
Enesco statred putting out. I even have Georges car plowed in to the tree. They're great.

That's ok....because its not really even a Christmas movie.


I never really did understand why it was a traditional Christmas movie when it had nothing to do with Christmas. It just happens to end at Christmas time in the movie.

No, I never tear up when watching It's a Wonderful Life, but I do agree it's a great movie. One of my favorites of all time.

I ended up in a discussion about what makes a chick flick, and one of the girls involved said any movie where the main guy cries. On that basis, I think both Rambo and Terminator 2 qualify as chick flicks and are ok material for dates (and I'm talking about the terminator crying, or at least would have if he could, not John Connor).

No, I don't tear up.....anymore. After you watch it 15 or 20 times, it doesn't have the same effect. But it sure is a great movie.
