The Bridges of Madison County - this is a film that a number of women (and men if they can admit it) will relate to and shed a few tears - one of the best films Clint Eastwood has ever made and of course Meryl Streep, as always, is fantastic.

Monster. - I cried several times throughout the film and had a big sob at the end. I daren't tell a soul in real life, because, unfortunately; most people would think me a mad man. Watching the documentaries about Aileen beforehand made the film that much more tangible.

The Man From Nowhere. - Wow, this is an amazing film. Not only is the choregrophy and action sensational but the tone is very well set, the acting is believable and the emotion is raw and pure. I cried several times.

The Lion King. - The infamous tearjerking scene got me too. Just remembering the way Simba says "Dad." is almost enough to make my lip quiver.

Homeward bound I. - What an ending! :'( & :'). Dog films really get me sobbing, even I Am Legend had me fighting back the tears in a packed cinema. I would like to watch Marley & Me and Hachi but I've been waiting untill I'm able to watch them alone with some tissues and a few hours after the film to have a good cry and get it out of my system. :P

World Trade Center. - I think an explanation would be offensive, such a moving film.

Brotherhood. - I have always found it hard to connect with even the most emotional and poignant of war films, they never have been my cup of tea, but this one really got me.

Toy Story III. - Yes, it's true. At 21 years of age I shed a few tears over a couple of talking toys. The power of Pixar is something truly special.

L.C, Hello there. I have seen that documentary about Aileen Wuornos by Nick Broomfiled a couple of times, myself. Well I suspect that some time in the future, probably many, many years, possibly even decades, the authorities, the judiciary, politicians etc, may well adopt a predominantly different attitude to the behaviour of people like her and treat adequately for extreme psychologically stress and a history of abuse etc. I think this will take such a very long time to occur because revenge is so much a part of our current psyche and desire in most of our societies on this planet at present and people are not very easily able to accept and distinguish between mental illness motives and other so called 'sane' motives for committing such crimes. The US authorities are especially keen to execute, or rather have been anyway for many years, and seem to dismiss or not take into account psychological disorders as much as other societies. Of course there's always the possibility that things may indeed never change there...

Films that make me cry buckets of tears :
Moulin Rouge - Satine's death(Ewan's face gets me every time even though I've seen the film lots of times)
Dumbo - The bit where Dumbo goes to see his mother in the jail.:((
Incendiary - I can't believe no one has mentioned this film.Fantastic acting by Michelle Williams and Ewan McGregor. Very sad film.
Eight Below - :((((
Ice Age 1,2,3
Titanic - I am alright till Rose dives back onto the boat/Irish mother puts her kids to bed/old couple on their bed with the water gushing in the room.
The Lion King
Black Hawk Down - tears of frustation at the situation that the soliders had found themselves. Some amazing scences in the film that put the back of my neck hair stand on end !
Big Fish - the ending always gets me every time. One of the best ending I have ever seen.

lector, Hi.
You're speaking some real truth there, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who is aware of such things.

film that makes me cry - breaking the waves.

Not really crying - more of a temporary nervous breakdown - the most powerful film ever made - the main character was so messed up that i genuinly cried tears of dispair. It could be compaired to the film that Lector was discussing.

Also naming some more: Juno, life is beautiful and the shawshank redemption

L.C, I'm sure that there are quite a few who do, but they/we just don't speak up enough. And I can't honestly say, hand on heart, that I'm a seeking-revenge-free type myself - though hopefully not in respect of the convicted mentally ill. I'm fairly confident though, that society's attitude will change as we evolve.

Old Yeller - Disney could be so cruel to children by killing the hero of a film half way through!

Titantic I felt weepy at, but My Girl had me in full flood tears...and i think (it was a few years back) i watched I Am Legend and I'm pretty sure I cried when Sam the dog died. Okay, in any films, when animals, especially dogs die, I cry! That reminded me! Marley and Me when Marley died and Black Beauty when the mother died :(

UPDATE: (may be spoilers! Beware!)

The Lion King- when the father died.
The boy in the striped Pyjamas- the shocking ending.
Raise your voice- when the brother died in the car crash in the beginning.
A cinderella story- when the father died in the beginning.
The bridge to Terabithia- when the girl died.

I guess people above/below are right when they said certain parts of films are linked to our life and fears. I cry when people I feel connected to, die, I just feel sympathy if they're hurt or whatever. I guess I was afraid of death and still is a bit but not so much as before :) (most films above are from years ago when I cried- haven't cried for a film in a while yet and yes I have seen War Horse and I'm surprised I didn't cry at it because I normally do when animals are hurt).

'Glory' just an amazing true account of the first american black regiment brilliant!! You will cry like a baby but they will be tears of joy and pride yeah..

This movie is about an alcoholic. I've been exposed to alcoholism and I was surprised by how much this rattled me. I have never cried more. (I'm afraid to watch it again.)

J.H, I thought 'Glory' was an underated film. One of the better American Civil War/War Between The States films. Great story at the heart of it, very good acting and some excellent battle scenes.

There have been a few films that have just made me break down in tears. Here are my personal tearjerkers

The Killer - Fung Sei getting a no holds barred beatdown and SPOILER Alert! Ah Jong murdered and blinded by Wong Hoi so Jenny doesn't get to see again.
The Crow - When Eric reminisces about Shelly when reuniting with Officer Albrecht and the end credits song It Can't Rain All the Time by Jane Siberry.
Transformers: The Movie - One scene and that is Optimus Prime's death. Made all the more heartwrenching with "The Death of Optimus Prime) playing throughout the whole scene.
Grave of the Fireflies - Not seen it but watched a music video of it on Youtube. Beatles' Let It Be and I was just wailing because it was so sad.
The Green Mile - John Coffey's death, need I say anymore?
The Elephant Man - 2 tear inducing moments in this. First being Joseph/John admiring a painting of a young boy in bed then asks Treves if his condition can be cured and the answer is no and the second is of course the ending when he decides to sleep like a normal person even though he knows it will kill him.

Pans Labyrinth
Hachiko - A Dogs Story
On the Beach (2000) - cried so hard could'nt talk to my mate when she called me through all the sobbing

T.A, I haven't seen the remake, but I thought the original 'On the Beach' was one of the most depressing films I've ever seen, which is probably exactly what the Director (and writer) wanted!

DB Edwards says:
Two disparate flicks come to mind. One is Walt Disney's BAMBI, and the other is Fred Astaire's and Audrey Hepburn's FUNNY FACE. If you have seen BAMBI, I needn't explain. But in FUNNY FACE. there is a dance scene between Mr. Astaire and Miss Hepburn in a park setting, that is so sublime, may I say so DIVINE and romantic, I just spout crocodile tears. One yearns for such romance in their lives. Sometimes it is only upon the screen one realises it.

Million Dollar Baby and Schindler's List. Can't remember any others, maybe The Elephant Man.

A.J, Hi. 'The Elephant Man'! Yes, how could I have forgotten that one. Very moving performance there by John Hurt.
