10 Movies That Will Absolutely, Positively Make a Make Man Cry (A List of Mostly Lists)

In his latest tongue-in-cheek post, Ryan Björklund offers suggestions for click-worthy Good Men Project articles that will never, ever be written.  


While there certainly are some really great motion pictures out there, not all of them exist for the purpose of jerking tears. Tear-jerking is often done at home, when you are feeling lonesome and eager for Jergens-love. Although some movies can turn me into a big, cisgendered, sniveling man-baby, I promise that I have never in my life punctured a hole in the bottom of a tub of popcorn. Never.


Not even once.


Can I get a #Witness?


So instead of writing the list described in the title, I’ve decided to pitch some cool GMP article ideas. Here are a bunch of titles you’d certainly click on that will never, ever exist.

About Ryan Bjorklund

While a high school junior, Ryan Björklund went to Australia on a student exchange program. Although an invaluable experience for him, it also depleted all the money he had accumulated for college tuition. Upon receiving zero scholarships despite scoring above-average on the ACT, he joined the US Army and served from 2006-2012, working as an ammo supply specialist, engineer, and cavalry scout. He was honorably discharged as a 19D20 (SGT) cavalry scout from Ft. Bliss, TX and now lives in Pittsburgh.


  1. ““10 Ways A Stay-At-Home Dad Can Spank His Kids Without Getting Laid Low Like Jerry Sandusky””

    Umm….Spanking compared to sexual abuse? Huh?

    But to answer the title…I can think of:
    The notebook
    Marley and Me
    Life as a house
    Saving Private Ryan
    Anything with a dog that dies.
    Any major act of sacrifice with the right music
    and finally of course Dragonheart.

  2. ok, I admit, when I clicked on this link, my first thought was, “what tear jerker movie features a row of women’s butts likeTHAT? I must have missed that one.” :-)

  3. Cinema Paradiso
