Most men probably aren’t going to cry over a movie like Sex and the City, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have emotions. If you want to check the pulse of your brother, friend, or loved one, than pop in one of these movies and have some tissues handy. Here are seven movies that make men cry, well at least the sane ones.
Rocky – Rocky isn’t the kind of a movie that will get him to cry every time, but look out if you are seated next to a man watching Rocky for the first time. We all have a little Rocky in all of us and the close identity hits most men hard. Rocky (and Rocky 2) will make men cry.
Rudy – Rudy is truly a man’s movie. I have watched Rudy with some women who just don’t get it. Most of us never walked on to our school sport’s team or ever achieved the dream of breaking tackles to the screaming of thousands of fans. Rudy is one of the most inspirational movies of all time and a guaranteed movie that will make men cry.
[adinserter block=”2″]The Notebook – Sure it isn’t as macho as Rudy or Rocky but The Notebook will get him almost every time. As long as he has had a relationship or been in love he will shed a tear with The Notebook. The Notebook is a movie that will make men cry, just don’t tell anyone because he will deny it until he is blue in the face.
Million Dollar Baby – He is made out of granite if he isn’t crying during Million Dollar Baby. Million Dollar Baby does a fantastic job of making Maggie so likeable that it is virtually impossible not to be emotionally involved after she suffers a horrific accident. Million Dollar Baby is a movie that will make men cry and hey, Clint Eastwood is in the movie. There is nothing unmanly about crying during a Clint Eastwood movie.
Brian’s Song – Some call Brian’s Song the ultimate guy movie. Brian’s Song tells the story of the relationship between Chicago Bears running back Gayle Sayers and teammate Brian Piccolo. Piccolo and Sayers develop a friendship that breaks social and racial barriers. The movie takes a dramatic turn when Piccolo develops cancer and even the manliest of men will shed a tear during Brian’s Song.

Take the current Mel Gibson out of the equation and any objective male eye is bound to draw a tear in Braveheart. William Wallace telling his blue warriors that they will “never take our freedom,” is one of the most chilling moments in all of cinema. It is heart stopping, it is dramatic, and Braveheart is a movie that will make men cry.
