Movies, TV, and Crying

Every time I watch Call the Midwife I cry. Every single time! I love the show and was so glad when I finished the season, the crying was draining me.

Do any shows or movies make you cry?

Oh, and books! Once I start crying I canít stop.

I am not an overly emotional person in life so I guess it all comes out with books and shows.

There are a few books that I have cried over. I can't remember crying over a TV show or movie, BUT I also purposefully don't go see things that I know are going to just be really sad. For me, that's not entertainment.

Call the Midwife gets me every time, too! I haven't seen the new season because it isn't out on Netflix yet.

When Calls the Heart got to me, as well.

The simple movies make me cry, especially if they are about dogs, even though I'm not a huge dog person.

I haven't seen that show, but it's on my list!


I'm pretty unemotional, so not many things make me cry. The only show (and book for that matter) that has made me cry recently is Outlander. Not a lot of episodes, but there are a few that were so heartbreaking that I actually cried, even though I already knew what was going to happen. And there were a few episodes that I actually cried happy tears! There has to be pretty amazing acting to make me cry!

I seldom cry in real life situations, but I will weep at movies and music.

In the 80's I watched Highway to Heaven and would sob every time. I carried on so much my mom refused to let me watch it.

I cried when I saw Gandalf in The Hobbitt, it was like being reunited with a loved one. I got a few perplexed looks and a few sympathetic ones.

The Faith episode of Outlander made me cry.
I canít watch the end of Out of Africa without a case of Kleenex.
And there was an episode of Poldark that took me by surprise and I wept.

along with many others make me cry. Sometimes it is a sad cry sometimes it is a happy cry. Also cried at some of The Parenthood episodes, Downton Abbey, Six Feet Under, Little House on the Prairie, A life Unexpected......

I am glad to know it is not just me.

Oh, yes, I'm a crier. One movie that always gets me is Peggy Sue Got Married. I absolutely start bawling when Peggy Sue goes back in time to her teen years and her bedroom is the same, her mom takes care of her, and she visits her grandparents.

I cry fairly easily at any emotional scene in movies or shows. The one movie I cry every single time (and I've seen it plenty!!) is Love Actually at the end with the Beach Boys song "God Only Knows" and the montage of people greeting at the airport.

I don't over movies or tv shows because I am always aware that they are actors playing a part in the stories! Guess I've seen too many of the "behind the scenes" of the makings of movies and tv shows!

1. "Leader of the Band" by Dan Fogleberg. EVERY TIME! I remember hearing it in the car for the first time after my father passed away. I don't know how I was able to keep driving.

2. Steel Magnolias, the cemetery scene, every time!

3. The movie Oliver when a very young Mark Lester sings "Where is Love?"

I think I cried during every episode of "What Not to Wear." I'm such a movie crier and I hate it! I'd much rather cry at home than in public. I was about to say that I don't cry when I read books, but I was just crying when I was reading 2 days ago.

Maybe I get it all out during the books, movies, and shows. I actually find myself tensing up if I feel I'm about to have a dramatic goodbye with someone because I don't want to appear to be a blubbering idiot.

Thereís a movie from the 80ís that mil had on vhs. It was called Without a Trace. Itís about a missing boy that is eventually found. I cried like a baby the first time I saw it. It was on hbo recently and I recorded it. Yup, cried like a baby. No movie has made me cry like that.

Call the Midwife

I have cried at Call the Midwife too, especially the episode where Reggie is introduced and an episode with Barbara, I don't want to give too much away for people who haven't seen it yet. It's a great show. I also cried at the Christmas episode with the BBC filming a service at the church. It gets me every time. It's my favorite episode.



Downton Abbey had me sobbing like a baby when Sybbie was born and when George was born.
