    this isn't one of mine, but every single girl I know is completely obsessed with Love Actually. It had some funny parts to it, but not much of a tearjerker for me.

    If I would have to pick a personal movie, one of my favorites is Thomas Crown Affair. It's borderline chick flick, but its one of my all time favorites. The soundtrack, the art, and the acting were great. (I haven't seen the original yet. Its on my list of things to do before I die tho :) )

    The only three films to make me cry:

    - On Golden Pond
    - Love! Valour! Compassion!
    - Beauty And The Beast (yes, the Disney one. Shut up. It's lovely)

    None of them are really Valentine's Day films, though they're all very sweet. And a lot better than Love Actually (ewww...I actually don't know any girls who really liked the film either. It was better than Wimbledon, I guess). It's annoying because I do like a good chick-flick, but it seems that Hollywood's only making really bad ones (Bridget Jones II, The Wedding Date etc. etc.).

    Life is Beautiful - I never cried so much at a movie
    My Life - Jeez, I just realized these sad one and this is for Valentine's day

    OK......happy crying movies

    Ghost - I know....bittersweet
    Dirty Dancing - probably on every females list of favorite movies
    50 First Dates - Just the most recent one that I cried at the end when I saw it on cable a few weeks ago.

    Just don't get me started on those Zales commercials :rolleyes:
