Here at Crushable, we have a theory: That guys who hate everything like Pixar movies and Lost. Who doesn’t, really? Back to Pixar and guys: Basically, these movies turn men into blobbering man-boys. Like the scene in Ratatouille when – spoiler alert – the evil food critic gets misty-eyed once he tastes the nostalgia and down-home goodness of the genius rat-chef’s special twist on an old French standard (ratatouille!). But we get ahead of ourselves.
Adam Levine of Maroon 5 fame is just another guy who got bit by the Pixar bug. The singer tells Sirius Satellite XM Radio:
I didn’t want to full-on cry because I probably would have if I would have been home. Seriously, those Pixar movies in general, but especially this Toy Story. And I have seen the first two and I was telling my girlfriend “We got to go see Toy Story 3″ and she was like, “What?” And I was like, “No, seriously trust me; you’re going to freak out … .” So we went and saw it and it was the most well made, emotional, beautiful movie I have ever seen. People think just because it is about kids’ stuff and just because it’s for children that it can’t have depth and it can’t be a soulful thing and it can’t be amazing. But it is seriously the best movie I have seen in a long time. … I fought the tears a little bit. The glasses helped. I could let it get a little teary up here … you do the thing where you let them start to flow a little bit, and you look over and see if your girl is crying, forget it, you can cry as much as you want.
When your guy cries at Toy STory 3, that can be a deal-maker, ladies. Here’s video of Adam defending TMI-ing:
