These are the movies that make New Jersey cry
It came up on the show that Michele Pilenza had watched a mini-series on Netflix that had her weeping (“From Scratch”), so we took calls from people regarding which movies or tv shows made them cry (and a couple of commercials did the trick, as well).
Here then is a partial list of some of the sob-inducing fare:
The Pixar movie about the boy searching for his great-grandfather in the Land of the Dead
Another Pixar entry; the first ten minutes were mentioned multiple times
Toy Story 3
Yes, another tear-jerker from Pixar…Andy goes to college and leaves his toys behind
The true story of a guy who just wanted to play football at Notre Dame
If Anything Happens, I Love You
A 13-minute film that brings Kylie to tears
A 1979 movie about a boxer and his son (one of them dies)
A pretty sad movie all the way around
The made-for-TV classic about Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers of the Chicago Bears (one of them dies)
Man on Fire
In Mexico City, a former CIA operative swears vengeance on those who committed an unspeakable act against the family he was hired to protect. (IMDB)
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
It’s sad when ET has to go home
And three commercials:
Budweiser- The “We’ll Never Forget” ad
Hershey’s Chocolate- Boy learns sign language to hit on a girl
