Owen Gleiberman would like to get something off his chest: He cried at Toy Story 3, and he doesn't mean a few sniffles. "I’m talking about that soppy, awkward thing where you make sounds," the Entertainment Weekly critic fesses up. He also suspects he's not alone among the movie's male fans, and he wants them all to know that "it's okay!"
The movie doesn't superficially tug on the heartstrings, it works in "layers," he writes. For those who haven't seen the movie, Gleiberman gives a spoiler alert about when to stop reading the column. But know that "for the men, like me, who grew up with cowboys and soldiers and spacemen and Mr. Potato Head and a Barrel of Monkeys," the movie is "deeply special and transporting." So go ahead and cry.
