Few things in life get as uncomfortable as watching a man cry. Granted, there are often good reasons for a man, woman, or child to cry, but they don’t make the situation any less awful. This awkwardness is compounded when the man crying is in a movie. In person, you have an obligation to tend to the man in distress and make sure he’s OK. When watching a film, you don’t know whether to laugh or cry with him or just look at the wall of the theater until it’s all over.
These clips represent a few of the films that have crying scenes so awkward that your only choice is to turn away and repeat, “This isn’t happening. This isn’t happening.” It’s horrible. Just horrible.
Fortunately, no other characters are around to experience this champion cry by the pudgy, tank-topped Scotty, but that doesn’t really do much to make things better for the audience. Scotty really lets loose after Dirk refuses a sensual open mouth kiss. Scotty misread the situation pretty awesomely, and now he will spend the next minute or so reminding himself that he’s a “f*ckin’ idiot.”
He sure is.
