If you want a good cry

Last night Tom and I watched P.S. I Love You. This is NOT the movie to watch when you're suffering from a full head of mucous. I pretty much cried throughout the entire thing. It's a movie for couples, singles, widows/(ers), divorcees, basically anyone will be able to relate to some aspect of this movie.

Only disappointment was Harry Connick Jr's. character. I wasn't buying his role and the camera angles made him look slack jawed throughout the majority of the film. Not a good choice in my worth nothing opinion.

But as a whole, the movie was phenomenal. Just make sure you have plenty of kleenex on hand.

Has anyone else seen it? Your thoughts?

I cried through the whole movie, I even wrote a post about it... it hit home for me on soooo many levels, especially the whole brain tumor thing. :(

Now I have to watch it again! :)

Haven't read or seen it yet...will have to definitely check it out. Perfect rainy day for it today, huh!?

But,I can't watch it around Ed. Hillary Swank freaks him out. He thinks she looks like a man.

Did you give Tom his penis back when the movie was over?

I read the book and cried. I watched the movie and cried (although in the movie they changed a few things around that I didn't like.) Cried a lot. Very good, but a sniffly movie. Marley and Me the book did that to me too and I read that on the bus (embarrassing to cry on the bus!) and finished it during my lunch break at work in the Seattle Center one day...cried like a baby and had homeless people in the Center House looking at me funny!

Moog: At first Tom didn't want to watch the movie but by the end he was glad he did! Anyway, he detaches his peep when I force the Chick Flicks.

Clippy: I'm also a cynic when it comes to a lot of those sappy tear jerkers because either they are so unbelievable or the acting is so stale, either way a major turn off, but this one hit home for us on a few too many levels that I just let it all go and had myself a good ole cry.

Kate: Judging from the riff raff that hangs around Seattle Center, I'm sure you were probably the most normal of the bunch (even if you were sobbing uncontrollably!)

i really liked this movie too!!

and i noticed the beer bottle too... ya think they could have straigtened up a bit before the camera was rolling right?

I had a good cry at my therapist's office today, and definitely don't need another one.

I tried watching that movie last week, and for reasons above, couldn't keep watching it. My life is depressing enough as it is! I hope it had a happy ending.

I just tivo'd this movie...perhaps I will wait till I have a day or night alone to get all snottied up. Cause, this girl cries at EVERYTHING.
