No movie can make you ugly cry like My Dog Skip.
The ugly cry feels great, though you may fight against it. For a woman, it usually occurs in the company of friends. For a man, it can happen while alone on the highway, during meditation or while waxing nostalgic about a recent or long past tragedy.
The ugly cry is truly ugly. If you look in the mirror while doing the ugly cry you're bound to stop crying. Unless, of course, you don't like the way you look and then that could make you go into a further tortured, ugly cry.
Babette: Holy shit! Did you see that guy?
Stud: Yup. Ugly cry.
Babette: Poor guy...
Katy: Yeah, Sammi had the WORST ugly cry I have ever seen in my life. If I hear "STAAAP" one more time, I'm going to kill myself.
