Some classic, well-loved films are classified tearjerkers, but would all sad, depressing movies make the manliest men cry? No. But these depressing movies can do the trick. What movies make men cry? This list contains some of the best movies of all time, including depressing movies with stories of lost loves, broken hearts, dying fathers, dying friends, dying dogs... a whole lot of dying. Other emotional films on this list might make men shed tears of joy with heartfelt scenes of reunion, resolution, redemption.

Great movies have the ability to transport audiences out of the theaters (or their living rooms) to different places and eras unlike the ones we know. The best movies make us forget our daily troubles and let us escape to whole new worlds where new unimaginable dreams can come true.

This interactive Ultimate List includes epics like Saving Private Ryan, comedies like My Girl, and even several animated tearjerkers like Up and Wall-E. Other classics like Old Yeller and the uplifting sports story Rudy round out the list. Admit it - some of these made you a little misty, even if you blamed it on someone cutting onions nearby. Vote on those movies with the saddest, most heart-wrenching and tear-worthy scenes that can make even the most manly, grizzled warrior of a man cry his heart out.

List Criteria: All-time saddest movies that can bring grown men to tears
