I don't think I cried after I was 12 or so until I was in my late 20s either. I would have to say in retrospect that might not be as healthy as it sounds. If I had watched Extreme Home Makeover when I was 19 or so I think I would have scoffed. Getting a bit older and with 2 kids, one only a few short years away from university and the stress that brings a parent in terms of worrying if they'll 'make it' or if one will be able to afford to even send them...I think that kind of perspective puts a whole new level of meaning to seeing 4 motherless teens get full scholarships, a new library and a decent roof over their heads. It was a pretty remarkable episode, and I don't think the tears of the men on it were faked, they were pretty broken up but I guess in a joyful sense. The people that show helps are genuinely in need and it always makes me want to hug my family and feel grateful for whatever we do have, cause it's a hell of alot more than those people that's for sure!

It doesn't make you a woman to be touched by something, whether in real life or being receptive to something in the arts... it makes you aware and willing to feel something.

Extreme Home Makeover, isn't that with that extremely loud and obnoxious presenter?

you know how futurama used to sometimes have a really moving episode about fry's past, or something like that?

those can still tear me up.


also the second half of the last season of arrested development, but for different reasons.

I'm not like, of the "men" circle or anything, but if I were, that is exactly what I would post.

YouTube - Batman (1989) - Racing toward the Batcave. 720p

I get a little misty-eyed every time I watch this scene. Does this count?

I don't cry because of movies but I suppose the closest thing is On The Beach which is the most depressing film ever.

Maybe because it's the most epic Batcave entrance ever.

It got a little dusty when Papa Kirk saved his ship at the beginning of Star Trek. Talk about tension.

Just so I don't get my manhood revoked.
I think you should watch My Life and get that remedied.
