16 Movies That’ll Make A Man Cry

I cry at movies. I cry at ideas. I cry at commercials where there are parents and droopy plants and determined horses in them. And my first reaction is always to look over at my man and see if he’s crying too. Usually, he is not (unless we are watching a Pixar joint). But I polled some dude friends, nudged social-media lurkers and dug around the Internet to find a sort of consensus about what cinematic formula makes a man tear up. Well, the answer seems to be war, sports, cartoons and the ties that bind – or destroy – a father and son. Though these attributes seem very gender-normed, I’ll take it! Because, no matter what the cause, a man who can feel and isn’t ashamed to feel is a blessed thing. So put on these films and prepare to share the tissues. (And beware of the following spoilers.)
