I don't know.... I saw it and didn't feel compelled to cry at all. I mean, it was a good movie, but....

16 and 18, depends on the person. I shed a tear or two during Ted for christ sakes... It doesn't make you less of a person or more of a person to cry at a film, just quit shaming each other for expressing yourselves differently!

I wasn't shaming. I was just saying a person is not souless just because he/she didn't cry at the movie.

Are you kidding the way the small kid dies and Anne Hathaway falling to prostitution because of her great love for her daughter? If anything it is moving to see the lengths she went to! I'm a totally Hetero dude, saw it with a bunch of friends and teared up a bit in a few scenes. Especially when all the kids sing the wine of friendship then die the next day! That was rough

It is an exaggeration to say that the girlfriend has no soul, just as she was exaggerating when she called the OP a wimp for crying. That was pretty mean of her, though. For me, I didn't cry when Bambi's mom died, or when the Enterprise was destroyed, and I didn't cry during this movie. Does that mean it didn't affect me? No, not at all. I just usually don't cry during movies or TV shows at all. In fact, I can only think of ONE time I did: United 93. And that time, I totally lost it. To the OP:

I haven't seen this movie yet but I have watched the Rugrats Paris movie and I cry every time they show Chuckie on the plane wishing he had a mom still and showing all the babies with their moms. I don't know if it's the song or just the fear of losing my own mom but it gets me every single time. Crying over movies isn't stupid and people making fun of each other when they do it isn't cool, some people are more emotional than others.

I haven't seen the movie... but judging by other's comments, I can bet I will cry... the most I've cried during a movie is while watching "My Sister's Keeper" I was actually inconsolable...

82 and 88. I'm surprised you haven't heard anything about the plot yet. It was a famous musical for many years, and a book before hand. Also everyone knew the movie was gonna be big, so you should expect spoilers.

Reply

The book came out in 1862, the musical 32 years ago, and you're whining about spoilers? It's like being angry at being spoiled for Titanic because the boat sinks at the end. It doesn't exactly count as spoilers when the story has been around 150 years.

Even by my closest friends I've been called a "robot" for not crying at something. Does that make me less of a human? No. Maybe she just doesn't show emotion on the outside. Calling someone a robot is a bit extreme. I don't even know how this is an fml because if it bugs him so much just tell her or break up with her or just forget about it.

When I saw Les Misérables, I cried when the little boy died and when Eponine died. At the end, I was sobbing because it was so sad but sweet

Reply

I cried like a little bitch and I'm not ashamed. I don't think crying at movies is a bad thing, it just shows that your really into it emotionally.

Reply

I've honestly heard about the movie and book and everything but I've never read anything about the plot I was planning on seeing it, but that spoiler honesty wasn't needed..

Reply

My dad laughed at me for losing it when I saw the movie, it was the hardest I've ever cried during a movie. With Fontine and Gaverosh... It was too much to take

I don't think it's a bad thing to get emotional over something that was supposed to be emotional. If the right strings get pulled, sometimes it's impossible to stop yourself from full out sobbing. That being said, it's not necessarily bad if a certain movie doesn't make you cry either, but I don't think it was right of the girlfriend to make him feel bad.

oj - Spoilers aside, I think you're confused; Eponine is not there when he passes on. He doesn't even know who she is. :/

#6- "YDI" are you serious??? What, people can't cry in public anymore without being made fun of? Especially if you're a man? (to #61) There's certainly nothing wrong with emotional relief. Everyone does it.

Nah, the overly melodramatic ruins it, it's just too much at the end. You can really see they try to get you to cry, and I don't like that. If something is truely beautifull or sad, you'll cry. For instance the ending of the Shawshank Redemption, I cried.

Reply

Nah, I don't like the overly melodramatic music at the end, that kinda ruins it. They try too hard to make you cry and personally I dislike that.

Never seen it, didn't have much of a childhood I guess. I also never saw the lion king. From what I've heard that's pretty rough.

Reply

I've actually never seen Bambi either, but you should sit down and give Lion King a try. You will have no regrets.

Reply

I'm sorry. Of course you've never "SWEDEN" Bambi. Ducking Swype. What I MEANT to say was, "YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BAMBI???"

Watch the Rugrats movie when they go to Paris. If you're like me you'll cry during the airplane scene where Chuckie is sad because he doesn't have a mom and all the other kids are snuggled with theirs and he's looking our the window seeing clouds that look like him and his mom. It's pretty sad. Gets me every time. Marley and Me, yea I didn't cry. The movie wasn't really that good anyway.

Reply

#89, avoid movie theater popcorn -- it's got too much Greece. Get some Chile instead. I love dogs, but I grew to hate Marley by the end of that movie. I clapped when that son of a bitch died!

Reply

Perdix (96) You wouldn't Belize how much of the story the Marley and Me movie cut out; the dog in the movie was a shit, but the real dog (from the book) had redeeming qualities. :-)

You've obviously never seen commercials or previews that feature footage for his concerts. It's not that interesting, I assure you.

Some people just react differently in situations like this, she may think its awkward to see people around her crying. She may even be like that guy from an FML post awhile ago about not crying In years, and losing it at a hallmark commercial.

I don't blame you, OP. I tried to stay strong but she's such a wonderful actress and I've always been partial to Fantine. I cried as well. :/
