I love, I mean LOVE a good tear jerker. If you give me a choice between a comedy and a deep, dark drama, I’m all for the movie where shit get’s real. But now that I have freakin’ cancer, I can’t watch them anymore. Here are a few that I loved (some I didn’t) and will never, ever watch again because it’s too close and I can’t take it.
Step Mom is one of my favorite movies. It’s my go to movie if I need to cry. You know those shitty days when you need to cry it out but the cry is stuck? That’s when I’d turn on Step Mom. There’s the scene when Susan Sarandon’s character learns that she is going to die from her cancer and she’s laying in bed and has quilted her children their last cape or blanket. She’s saying goodbye. And the little boy asks, “Mom, are you going to die?” and Susan Sarandon asks, “What do you think?” I can’t take it!!! And now I can never watch this fucking movie again!!!! Fuck you, cancer!
TERMS OF ENDEARMENT
Really. Do I need to explain it? Debra Winger gets breast cancer. It’s the 80’s so she’s pretty screwed. Shirley McClaine screams “Get her the drugs!!!!!” She eventually dies leaving behind two adorable children. They always show this movie on basic cable every year. And now I can’t watch it. You suck, cancer!!!!!
Another Julia movie. I know, I know. Her character had diabetes or something, not cancer but still! She desperately wants a baby and decides to have one despite the risks. She has the baby. Her veins get all messed up. She goes on dialysis. She collapses while alone with her baby and is found hours later when said baby points toward the screen door where her body is laying. She never wakes up. Sally Field screams, “Why??!!??!!” in the most primal way. They celebrate Easter. I love this movie. Bye-bye awesome depressing movie. I hate you, cancer.
Well. Um. Wont’ miss this one. Never really liked it that much and Bette Midler kind of annoyed me. But I watched it if it was on. Now I won’t. Thank you, (no really, thank you!) cancer.
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
Ken and I saw this on our vacation this June when I had cancer but didn’t know I had cancer yet. I cried the whole time. I’ll never watch this movie again because this movie is like, super cancery (I made up that word) and everyone has cancer and it’s awful. Won’t read the book either. Cancer, I’m looking at you here.
ANY DISNEY MOVIE
Any favorite movies that you love that I can’t watch because I fucking have cancer? Let me know. I’d love to wish I could watch them!
