My least favorite part of Top Gun: Maverick was when my girlfriend loudly said “are you crying?” and a bunch of people started looking at me— Steven Castillo (@STEEEZUSCHRIST) May 26, 2022
The BEST scene in TGM is the Val Kilmer scene. If that doesn’t bring man tears, you’re not a true fan.

Lmao I was about to say…. the end? I was crying the second Kilmer came on screen— rob werk (@robbyballgame) May 29, 2022
Anyone who didn't cry during the ice man scene isn't human
