I can cry at a movie. I can cry if it's out of happiness or sadness...as long as it feels real and it's not hokey.

Then again, I've cried when people win a lot of money on a game show.

I'm the town crier.

If you cry, why is it considered a feel good movie?

Back when I watched more TV, I was known to cry at AT&T, Hallmark, and Kodak commercials.

If, in a really emotional scene, the character starts crying, then my eyes will tear up and my throat tightens...inevitably.

That would be the sort of thing that I won't admit to in public.

(Can't watch ET because of the crying buckets at the end thing, you know. And Gran Torino. Oh Boy. I was SOOOO glad that Tester San ws sensitive enough to realize that I didn't just have something in my eye which is how I usually try to play it, and to have a ready supply of tissues available.)

Me neither. I would be more comfortable as, say, Angelina Jolie or Madonna.
