A guy-cry film is a film that generally addresses a male audience, but has strong emotional material. 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. War movies and biographical films of a male character tend to also be guy-cry films. Some notable films that could be defined as guy-cry would be Field of Dreams, Rudy, Brian's Song, The Best Years of Our Lives, Furious 7, and The Wrestler.

  • A guy-cry film is a film that generally addresses a male audience, but has strong emotional material. 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. War movies and biographical films of a male character tend to also be guy-cry films. Some notable films that could be defined as guy-cry would be Field of Dreams, Rudy, Brian's Song, The Best Years of Our Lives, Furious 7, and The Wrestler. Guy-cry is a neologism applied to a pre-existing type of film. This is mainly due to the financial and often critical successes of films that fall within this genre. 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. Important themes to the guy-cry genre are concepts of brotherhood, sacrifice, loyalty, and family. The Oregonian compiled a list of "films that make men cry", 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. (en)
  • 爺們哭電影(Guy-cry film)是指主要以男性為目標觀眾,並有強烈情緒元素的電影。運動電影可算是爺們哭電影,但體育並不一定是爺們哭電影的必要元素。戰爭電影和傳記片也可屬類為爺們哭電影。一些可被義為爺們哭電影的包括﹕《夢幻成真》、《豪情好傢伙》、《挑戰不可能》、《黃金時代》以及《拼命戰羊》。 同時,爺們哭電影是一個新詞,用以屬納出過去一些在票房和評論上取得成功的電影。最早期的爺們哭電影弄追溯到1970年代,並多以手足之情、犧牲、忠誠和家庭為題材。影片如《浪蕩子》、《飛越瘋人院》均是當時的代表作。 2008年,《俄勒岡州報》選出一系統爺們哭電影,當中包括《雷霆救兵》、《舒特拉的名單》和《受難曲》等。《娛樂周刊》也在翌年列出「可讓男人落淚的電影」,名單中包括不少動畫電影,比如《史努比回家》和《反斗奇兵3》。 (zh)
