I cried all four times I saw it in theaters, and I just got it on DVD today because it came out today and I watched it twice and cried both times. I am also a 16 year old boy and I think it's okay to cry during sad movies/musical productions.

I didn't cry which is unusual for me. I'm a huge softie when it comes to movies, and I even cried at the end if Inglorious *******s, which wasn't sad at all. Among that, I cried at the endings of Forrest Gump, The Dark Knight, Taken, To Kill A Mockingbird, about every Pixar movie, Inception and a hundred more.

Agreeing there. ;D

Not sure, maybe got teary-eyed during the part of Eponine singing in the rain played Samantha Barks.

No. While it is OK to cry I just never do. I don't see why it was so sad though. Then again I am just a Dalek.

I just feel like pointing out that I have never seen this movie, to add some contrast to all four of you people who have seen it.

I have never cried during a movie in my entire life and I've never been able to understand how anyone could. An emotional response like this just makes absolutely no sense to me.

I never saw the movie, but I have seen stage productions, so I at least get the gist of the story. Either way, I doubt it would have any sort of emotional effect on me, as movies almost never do.

That isn't exactly contrast, since the question wasn't "Did you watch the Les Mis Movie?" or anything along those lines.

I didn't cry, but there were some heartfelt moments. I don't think a movie has made me cry since I was ~7 and that was Tarzan.

What a ****ing boring, bloated, over-the-top cheesefest of a movie. Great movies make you cry because they have great emotional depth, not because every single element is calculated to elicit an emotional response. What an overrated crock of ****e.

You're the weird one, not the rest of the world. Ever seen a psychiatrist?

I haven't watched the movie yet but the day my sister finished the book she came running out of her room crying.

Wow..that was unnecessarily harsh. He never stated that he found people weird for crying during a movie..he just stated that he can not understand why people do so

I have, actually. He told me that rudeness can be a sign that one may lack a conscience, but not to worry because I'm not rude unless I'm dealing with other rude people or bad drivers. Then the billy club comes out.

I used to think I had a firmer grip on reality than those who cry in movies because I was able to cope with the fact that the characters in these movie are all fictional and the people playing them are over-dramatizing for dramatic recognition; they're not facing any real tragedy. Keep in mind this was also when I could still feel most emotions.

Whether or not I could feel them, however, fake emotional drama from movies never penetrated my hermetic bulwark of cynicism.
