Gather your girls, fire up the DVD player and have a party -- but don't forget the Kleenex. It's a crying shame how often chick flicks make us weepy. If the "Steel Magnolias" remake (9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime) puts you in the mood for more melancholy, watch these five films: "Terms of Endearment" (1983) -- For another complicated mother-and-daughter relationship, turn to this critically acclaimed drama. Life does not turn out well for Emma (Debra Winger), who has to deal with a cheating husband, a controlling mother (Shirley MacLaine) and a deadly diagnosis. But it's her children who really break our hearts. "Titanic" (1997) -- It's hard to let go of this blockbuster epic that launched the careers of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio into the stratosphere. Doomed lovers Jack and Rose don't let class differences and an engagement stand in the way of destiny. Jack makes the ultimate sacrifice to save his love. Cue the Celine Dion music -- and our tears. "Ghost" (1990) -- Ditto. Was there ever a more forlorn word uttered? After her boyfriend (Patrick Swayze) is murdered, Molly (Demi Moore) sinks into her grief until a medium (Whoopi Goldberg) offers her a chance to connect with Sam one final time. Moore's tear ducts deserved an Academy Award. "Love Story" (1970) -- More doomed lovers. Blue blood Oliver (Ryan O'Neal) and working class girl (Ali MacGraw) marry and struggle financially after his family cuts him off. When his soul mate succumbs to illness, Oliver's father has a change of heart, to which Oliver tearfully utters the immortal line, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." We still don't know what that means. "The Joy Luck Club" (1993) -- There are so many moments in this film -- about the sometimes strained relationships between Chinese mothers and their Chinese-American daughters -- that tug at our heart strings. But if we had to pick one that really makes us turn on the waterworks, it would be the moment where a beaten-down mother makes a tragic mistake while bathing her baby.
