From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A guy-cry film is a film that generally addresses a male audience, but has strong emotional material.[1][2] Sports films are important to the guy-cry genre, but sports action is not necessarily essential to qualify a film as a genuine guy-cry.[1][2] War movies and biographical films of a male character tend to also be guy-cry films.[1][2] Some notable films that could be defined as guy-cry would be Logan, Avengers: Infinity War, Field of Dreams, Rudy, Brian's Song, The Best Years of Our Lives, Furious 7, and The Wrestler.[1][2]

Guy-cry is a neologism applied to a pre-existing type of film.[1][2][3] This is mainly due to the financial and often critical successes of films that fall within this genre.[1][2]

Early popular guy-cry films date back to the early 1970s with films such as Five Easy Pieces and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.[1][2] Important themes to the guy-cry genre are concepts of brotherhood, sacrifice, loyalty, and family.[1][2]

The Oregonian compiled a list of "films that make men cry",[4] that includes Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, and The Passion of the Christ, among many others.

Although guy-cry films are typically live action films, some animated films such as Snoopy, Come Home and Toy Story 3 have been described as such.[5] Movies in this category do well in the Academy Awards.[citation needed]
