Pass the Kleenex Part II

May 21, 2009

Tonight I was watching The Rose, with Bette Midler.  I think it’s loosely based on the life of Janis Joplin.  Not only is it a fantastic, if not older movie, but it also has the ability to make me cry like a baby.  If my kids were here they’d tell you how rare that is.  I didn’t cry at Old Yeller, I didn’t cry when the dog died in I Am Legend, or when the Matty is dying at the end of Red Dawn (“Daddy will be here soon Matty”).  Anyway, so what are the movies that make you snivel like a little girl, or for the feminists, snivel like a boy who you just kicked in the balls?

  8. rudy


  9. What’s Rudy? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.


  10. You have never seen Rudy — undersize kid dreams of playing football at Notre Dame. Everyone including his coach, his family tells him he cannot do it. He spends years trying to get in, plays on the practice squad and…well go rent it. If you get AMC it is on all of the time. Rudy is based on a true story. Sean Astin, one of the hiary feet guys from LOR is in it.

    I can not believe you have not seen this movie. Hoosiers, Breaking Away and Rudy — the trifecta of Indiana-themed sports movies. You should rent all three and have an Indiana movie night. Hey there is blood in all three movies! Does that encourage you?


  11. Back in 1969(?)I went to see Romeo and Juliette, the new version with Oliva DeHussey. I didn’t cry the first time but the second time around I started to cry when Romeo and Juliette met and didn’t stop through out the whole movie.


  12. What’s an “Indiana”?


  13. Indiana — on the heiarchy of places you might not want to visit it is just ahead of Kansas and Alabama… but way way ahead of Nebraska.

    Most people come here for the awesome mountains and beaches.


  14. LeeAnn, believe it or not I’ve not sat down and watched any version of Romeo and Juliet all of the way through.
    HB, I know what movie you’re talking about now! I’ve never seen it, but I’ve seen the other two you mentioned. BTW, love the description of Indiana…lol.


  15. “Indiana — on the heiarchy of places you might not want to visit it is just ahead of Kansas and Alabama… but way way ahead of Nebraska.

    Don’t forget the breaded tenderloin sandwich!


  16. Having lived in Alabama for almost 6 years now, I’d say it’s way ahead of Alabama except for the scenery and weather. I love the Hoosier peoples.
