Cry Me A River

Cry Me A River

It’s been a long while since I’ve sat down with a box of tissues and a good ol tear-jerking movie.
A very, very long while.
Too long, actually.

Every so often, whether I feel the need to or not, I should.
I should  plop my bottom down in my cozy recliner and bawl my eyeballs out via a love story.
Because a good cry cleanses the soul.
It truly does.
It purifies, energizes and invigorates too.
Oh. Yes. It. Do.

So as crazy as this may sound, I think I will have myself a Cry Fest this weekend.
Just me and my Top 5 uncontrollable sobbing movies

& WHAT, pray tell, are those movies ?
Well .. ! …
Funny you should ask.

1.  Somewhere In Time

Hands down the BEST love story ever, Ever, EVER & if you have never experienced it, you must.
You MUST ! !
Christopher Reeve.
Jane Seymour.
Time travel
& the MUSIC
There is no better soundtrack. Period.
‘Somewhere in Time’ is absolutely incomparable.


2.  Brian’s Song

This movie tells of the friendship between Chicago Bears Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers.
What a beautiful story !
But, it has to be the original, with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams, not the remake.
I can quote the exact lines in that wonderful heart-wrencher that will turn on my waterworks every single time.
My personal favorite ?
“I love Brian Piccolo …”
& pipe in the Brian’s Song theme song …?!?

boooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooo 

3.  The Elephant Man

“I am not an animal. I am a human being.”
Need I say more ?!?

Blubber. City.
for sure

4.  Carousel

Oh Billy Bigelow ! why’d you have to rob that place and die ????
Why ?
Why ?
Whyyyyyyyyyy ?!?
Shirley Jones loved you so much and was pregnant with your daughter !!!
& the songs “If I Loved You” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” ??

can someone hand me a hankie please ??
please ?


& finally

5.  Wuthering Heights

I remember watching this movie way, way back in the day.
Mom insisted.
Sisters and I obliged.
I can still hear our chorus of muffled wails when Catherine hauntingly called ‘Heathcliff …Heath….cliff …”
& Heathcliff’s perfectly worded vow …
 “If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn’t love you as much as I do in a single day”.

ooooooooh Heathcliff ooooooooh Catherine

Oh my.
How I do love love stories.

So yep.
I believe I am going to go for it.
I must.
It’s been much too long since I’ve let those tears loose.
So, if you happen to wonder where I be ?

sniffle sniffle
snort snort
dab dab

This is going to be GREAT !
