I agree it's rare. One movie scene that gets me every time is in Rocky II.

I recall reading in some paper discussing sad movies, ie - "Hachi - A Dog's Tale", that if you don't cry then there is something wrong with you.

I loved the devotion of that dog!!!!

Imo, the music, reactions from other actors/actresses, and how certain scenes are played out can trigger ones emotions. Maybe some more easily than others.

I recall when my Dad's mother died and we were at the funeral. I might have been pre-teen about that time. They were doing one of those bell swinging some kind of smoke about. The music was downright spooky and then looking up at my Dad's sad face, just turned the water works on for me. I wanted to get out of there pronto.

men do have emotions. I recently saw a movie where a serial killer murdered a policeman's wife and kidnapped his child. Seeing the child being tortured made me cry, and get angry at the same time. How could one be so cruel ?

What is the deal? You think men aren't allowed to have emotions? Come on.
A few tears during a sad movie is not a big deal.

I am very similar. Cried yesterday at Radio City music Hall and usually do not cry in real life situations. I think it is because in real life I think I have to be always able to move ahead and make rational decisions especially at critical times.

Definitely not one to cry over movies or things of that nature especially when you know its fiction and people are getting paid to play/act a certain role. Now, what gets me crying is when that comcast bill arrives and i realize my discount has expired and the deal has skyrocketed to over $200/month

The mental tears just begin to flow uncontrollably as i pick up the phone to make yet another empty threat of canceling my service

No that's not it at all. She wants him to cry for her, because she is trying to hurt him and he isn't reacting by falling to pieces. Some women need to be be able to hurt 'their man' to prove that he still loves her.
