I'm a sap when it comes to some of the old classic movies. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen some of the great flicks, when it gets to that certain part of the movie, I still well up. Why is that?

You wonder why we would put ourselves in that situation. We watch that certain movie and BAM!...we become blubbering idiots.

I was watching "Forrest Gump" the other night and there are a few scenes that caused the tear ducts to start leaking. My wife says I'm sentimental. I don't know what it is but I can't help it.

Some experts say it could be the “cuddle” hormone, oxytonin. It's been shown by researchers to increase feelings of trust, closeness to others, generosity and happiness.

Some of the great ones, like "Old' Yeller", "The Notebook" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" will do the trick every time.

There's others that will sneak up on you and before you know it, you're wiping your eyes and blaming it on the ragwood or something else in the air.

Do you have a favorite movie that opens the flood gates?
