Great MovieThe Ultimate Tear Jerker
15 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this film on a United flight to Asia 6/14/2011. The movie Brian Song about a friendship between Chicago Bears Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo, whom lost his battle with cancer (A REAL TEAR JERKER) has nothing on this one.

I Thought this was going to be a funny happy robot kind of film. NOT! I found myself mesmerized by this film. This movie broke my heart in a million pieces. Tears, outright crying, a love story of love stories.

A bit drawn out in the last half hour or so, however overall, Absolutely Grand. Don't forget your handkerchief. The ultimate tear jerker.
