– for Mom Time

Movies that make you cry are perfect for a mom night in when the kids are asleep and you’re by yourself. Top MomTime right there.

I always struggle to find something to watch when I realize I have the opportunity. I never plan in advance and then land up spending ages trying to find something to watch.


I’ve also included some of the quotes that will be sure to remind you of how these movies tug at your heart strings.


Movies that make you cry


Sometimes all you want is to watch one of the movies that make you cry. I don’t know whether it some sort of emotional release but I know that sometimes it just makes you feel better.



Here’s a list of some of the great Movies that make you cry. Some are recent, some are old most aren’t new so it’s a good list of things to watch. If you’ve got one to add let me know. I’m starting with a few of my favourites. Terms of Endearment, Dead Poets and Steel Magnolias are all absolute classics. If you’ve never seen them – this is where you should start. I initially watched them as a teenager and have watched them time and time again as I have got older and each time it brings a new understanding.


Good luck and I hope you have chocolate, pop corn, baked goods or whatever you need to get through the heart wrenching moments. Oh, and make sure you have some tissues handy too.
