Being that most men like to hold their emotions inside, particularly when watching a movie, there are films where it's OK to let those tears flow.

In fact, we encourage it! 

We present our 11 movies where it's all right for men to shed a tear or two... or even ball their eyes out!

Click through and check out our list of 11 movies that it's OK for guys to cry while watching.

1. The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness
Even if you are not a father, most men dream of being one someday. That is exactly why The Pursuit of Happyness is so powerful and emotional. Watching homeless Will Smith do anything and everything to not only keep his son safe, but do what he can to provide him with a better life, I'm crying just thinking about it.

2. Rudy

Rudy
Rudy is a film where the waterworks are building up for the entire film. It is only in the final moments of the flick where the Notre Dame players are carrying the tough little guy off the field on their shoulders that Niagara Falls start for most men. And that's OK.

3. Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3
What's in Toy Story 3 that can make a grown man cry? The passage of time, growing out of our younger selves... you name it. From beginning to end, Toy Story 3 is a tear-jerker of the male (and female) kind.

4. 50/50

50/50
With 50/50, it's all right to cry for several reasons. The bromance between Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon Levitt is so moving, especially when the latter is facing the greatest life test when he learns he has cancer and has a 50/50 chance of living. Then, there's the whole fighting for your life part. Guys, when you put 50/50 on, have those tissues handy.

5. Remember the Titans

Remember the Titans
Yes, it's the second football movie on this list. But, there is something about the game used as a metaphor for the changing racial relations in our country that is so emotionally riveting. And when they win after working together... cue the hyperventilating tears.

6. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
There are a few moments in Steven Spielberg's E.T. that get us. But, the most powerful is probably when E.T. hugs Elliot goodbye. Sniff, sniff.
