There is a question that has plagued mankind for centuries. The question that seems to have no answer. Researchers and scientists have spent countless hours trying to break the code. The question is: Does that guy really have something in his eye, or is he just crying during this movie? It's 2014, no longer do men have to hide their tears when at the movie theaters or sitting at home, watching their favorite film. For centuries, men have complained and threw a fit at having to watch a "Chick Flick". Secretly, deep down inside, it's really because they've ran out of excuses as to why their eye is watery. The chick flick has new competition in the form of the "Guy Cry" film. Although, these movies that can make a guy cry, are not exclusive to men. In fact, these films can pull on the heart strings of anyone that watches them. However, for the most part, these films seem to have more of an emotional effect on men. Here is a look at 10 movies you didn't know could make a guy cry.

1 The Shawshank Redemption September 23, 1994
Most guys might cry if they had to go to prison, but Shawshank Redemption isn't a 'guy cry' movie because of that. Shawshank Redemption is considered to be one of the greatest movies of all time. The story follows Andy Duffresne, played by Tim Robbins, who is convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover. He spends 19 years in the Shawshank state prison, despite claiming to be innocent. In prison, he becomes friends with Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding, played by Morgan Freeman, also the film's narrator. The film explores themes of friendship, self-worth, integrity and freedom. Perhaps, what makes this such a great 'guy cry' film is Andy's epic escape from prison. Despite not doing very well at the box office, the film is universally critically acclaimed.
