Seven Pounds was recommended to me by my daughter and like you I bawled my eyes out. Very good film though.

21 Gramms. Great music track 'Some Devil' by Dave Matthews really fits perfectly.

I dare anyone to remain dry-eyed at the end of "City Lights."

I second that. "Grave..." made me cry both first and second time I saw.I havenīt seen it since even though it is in my collection.Once I read a review of it saying :"it is the best movie I have ever seen..and I never want to see it again".

Schindler's List/Munich - two that left me quite upset, after viewing (both quite depressing). On a romantic note - I think 'THE NOTEBOOK' was a tearjerker for many.

I salute you H. Thompson - if you don't cry at this scene, you are emotionally unconnected...I love these types of scenes when you know it's coming and cannot control yourself..I particularly love them when they appear in the most unlikely of movies such as "Born on 4th July" when Kovic returns home to the 'burbs that no longer hold anything for him and his father shows him the home adjustments to make his disability easier and breaks down crying - It gets me every time..anyway, here are some others:
Wuthering Heights (Olivier version)
Revenge (completely under-rated Costner movie)
The Painted Veil
Goodbye Mr Chips
Somewhere in Time (Reeves was not just Superman!!)
But while I'm at it - you know the scene where Clark embraces his adopted mum in the prairie field??
Love is a many splendoured thing
My Life (Keaton was not just Batman! ;-) )

These are off the yop of my head and prove that I am in touch with my feminine side lol

Toy Story 2 - the bit where they play 'When She Loved Me' and Jessie is reminiscing about her previous owner - gets me every time! My husband however, rolls his eyes up in his head and has to remind me that "it's just a cartoon!!!"

The saddest film ever is a Vietnamese film called (in English) The White Silk Dress or Ao Dai in Vietnamese. It is an incredible film. The story is simple. A beautiful Vietnamese woman, who is a servant to a rich and horrible woman, falls in love with a hunchback man who gives her a silk dress, Ao Dai, for her wedding dress. They have many children, despite being very poor. Their children are girls are are very clever and want to go to school in Vietnam in the 1960s. BUT- they can only go to school if they wear an Ao Dai. Being so poor they can only afford one Ao Dai- the one their mother was married in, so the 2 sisters go to school at different times of the day and swap the Ao Dai on their way to and fro school. The Ao Dai is spoiled by one of the girls, but their parents cannot afford to replace it, so the mother takes on a job in a Chinese house of breast feeding a very old Chinese man to make a small amount of Dongs (VN money) to buy a new Ao Dai. She forgoes the ultimate humiliation to help her daughters. The terrible tragedy happens towards the end of the film when one of the daughters dies, when her school is bombed by an American plane. Then the mother dies during a bad flood in the centre of Vietnam, near Hoi An, when her and her husband are going about their usual job of fishing for shellfish. When it rains in Vietnam it floods rally badly. This is a terribly heartbreaking film and should be seen by everyone. Why it did not win an Oscar I do not know, but try to see it if you can. It is a masterpiece if Vietnamese cinema and so heartbreaking that anyone who watches it will hate those stupid films made by the Americans, like Platoon, the Deer Hunter and Apocalpse Now. All very bad compared to this film. An amazing film!

I've been a blubber all my life used to embarrass me terribly. Specially when on a date! Now I'm older(much) I don't give a damn.Just too many to mention but I'm surprised nobody has posted Field Of Dreams

Moulin Rouge- all that true love stopped in its tracks by a little bit of consumption- sniff
Steel Magnolias- it's the law to cry at this film
Life is Beautiful- Roberto Benigni is amazing
Remains of the day- missed opportunities are heartbreaking, when he watches the bus drive away
Mama Mia- (I know it's weird but I always cry in "Slipping through my fingers" and "Winner takes it all", that pesky Meryl Streep!)
Love Actually- Emma Thompson crying in the bedroom when she realises her husband is a philanderer
Sense and Sensibility- Emma Thompson again crying and begging Marianne not to leave her alone when she thinks she is dying
Erin Brokovic- when Julia Roberts give the woman from CSI her compensation payout

There are loads more- I'm a total cry baby!

Vernon and Irene Castle starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!! I was 9 when I saw this on TV and couldn't stop crying for about 2 hours. Definately Dumbo and Bambi!
Lately - The Duchess; Atonement; the 2nd Bourne film (where his girlfriend dies at the beginning); Angela's Ashes, the Remains of the Day. OK, though I hate to admit it because it was rather rubbish - Titanic, although Nearer my God to Thee is probably more moving.
Gone with the Wind when Bonnie dies
Always Its a Wonderful Life
Love actually, when Emma Thompson discovers that Alan Rickman has bought somebody else the present she thought was for her.
Jesse James with Tyrone Power
And huge huge unbearable weepie - Stella Dallas starring Barbara Stanwyk, especially when she watching her daughter's party through the window...
West Side Story
Finally for now, Toy Story, when the alien thinks its going to heaven (The claw!) and is then destroyed. Oh dear - glad I didn't see it in the cinema....
Can't even watch Schindler's List

Just watch 'Twenty Four Eyes', a Japanese film about a teacher who takes over at a village school in the 20s and gains the trust and love of the twelve children (the 24 eyes) in her class. The story follows the whole community through to the war and the post-war years when some of the pupils have a reunion and visit the graves of the boys who went off to fight but didn't return home. Oh God, I'm welling up just thinking about it. Do watch it, it's glorious - a weepy in the best sense of the word.

The Incredible Journey (original not remake) when old bodger comes into view at the end of the film tears just roll. Also Inn of the Sixth Happiness where Gladys Aylward is leading all the children away from the war going on around them.

West Side Story makes me blub every time.....same goes for the final scenes of the Chaplin films The Great Dictator and The Kid.

Has anyone seen "I Am Sam" starring Sean Penn and Dakota Fanning?

That film really got me. I just chanced upon it on TV really late at night, loved it.

"Lord of thr Rings" did it for me, especially at the end. So sad when Frodo leaves on the ship,leaving the other Hobbits behind. I cried for ages!
"Braveheart", of course at the end, when he's executed.
"Beaches", when Hilary just slips away sitting on the beach.
and "The Green Mile".......excellent movie!
