a poll to vote on the 25 greatest "tearjerker" movies.

Brokeback in on the poll, and currently in the lead.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

You don't need to put any information in to vote.  My vote is cast.  ;)

I voted...yay, it's still in the lead!

Toy Story 3 is a tearjerker? Shouldn't Titanic be on there?

I was surprised Titanic wasn't. I voted for Brokeback Mountain, The Color Purple and Steel Magnolias. In that order.

I voted. :)
BBM still in the lead.


I never heard of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but liked the title and looked it up. Sounds worth a try. In German, they butchered the title to forget-me-not, like the flowers.

Actually, that title is pretty appropriate for the film.

Ok, then I take my comment back, at least as long as I haven't seen the movie. ;D
