"Eight Below" made me cry so hard, I had a headache for hours. I just can't see the dogs (or any animals) suffer. Never had the heart to watch it a second time.
"Notting Hill" is always a sure bet to make me cry - but in a good way....
"Million Dollar Baby" is very sad, it still brings tears to my eyes every time.

Add there are probably many more, like City of Angels, Green Mile, Gone with the wind, etc. .... but I guess most of them have already been mentioned here.

No me but my wife - she was a bit down so I put on "Pay it Forward" - this will cheer you up I thought only I'd forgotten the bit right at the end where the Haley Joe Osmond character gets stabbed and dies. About 30 secs before I suddenly had a *&^%$ moment but of course it was too late - she was inconsolable for about an hour!!

how has no one mentioned The Lion King?! lots of disney gets me weeping - Dumbo, Bambi, even Finding Nemo a little bit!

Edward Scissorhands, as soon as she starts dancing in the snow i'm a wreck...also Little Women, to the point that I can't even talk about Beth without welling up!

Loads more but too many to list! Most recently - The Wrestler, and Grave of the Fireflies - everyone should see these!

one of the first movies I watched - a story about a robot who was shunned by everyone befriended a boy, turned out to be a softy and then sacrificed itself to deflect a comet. Saddest story ever and I'll never know the name of it. If it helps it came with SpaceJam as part of a two video purchase thingy. LET ME KNOW IF YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S CALLED please :)

The Notebook
The Timetravelers wife
City of Angels
One Magic Christmas
Road to Perdition
K19: The Widowmaker

Guaranteed to cry everytime I watch them, I ant even get past the first few scenes in K19 because I know what happens, as soon as the Doctor gets hit by the truck I have to take the disc out!!

Sorry if this has been mentioned but I can't go through all the previous posts!

The final scene in Fiddler On The Roof at the railway stop where Tevye feels obliged by his faith to disown one his daughters, Chava, because she is eloping with a gentile. She leaves in tears. Out of earshot he then tells her quietly to take care. By then the Jewish population of his Ukrainian village has largely dispersed due to an imminent land grab, possibly leading to a pogrom . Also there is the the realisation that Chava may die years later during the holocaust as she is moving to Warsaw.

I didn't cry but I had to control myself with a certain amount of difficulty.

I daresay Schindler's List has been mentioned but it's the only time I've ever left a full cinema where you could hear a pin drop.

Goodbye Mr Chips starring Robert Donat.

For me and my lady it has to be Steel Magnolias, Julia Roberts hospital bed scene and mom Sally Field when she collects the little boy and to top it all the scene at the graveside with all the ladies together and Sally asks Whyyyyyyy her little girl had to die, but then the reverse into laughter when Ouzia gets slugged by her best friend. This will make even the hard man brush a tear away as long as your not looking.........

I am with B.Allen, Shadowlands always makes me cry, it's the superb acting by Anthony Hopkins! Also The English Patient, Especially the bit when Ralph Fiennes carries Kristin Scott Thomas? out of the the cave. Has me in bits every time. Other one is Out of Africa, when they go flying in the plane over the flamingos and she puts her hand in his. Always have to have a tissue handy.

The Godfather III, the scene when they walk out on to the steps outside the building, Al Pacino's acting was so good that I felt it so bad, I couldn't stop crying!

This might sound crazy but I would say the ending to Carlito's Way did it for me also; Scarface because he was such a good actor in the film (I wouldn't say I cried but I did get upset).

I tend to root for the baddies in the films so apologies if I sound a little loopy!

Would cry at anything but the one that got to me the most definately has to be "My Sister's Keeper" now normally when I say crying, I mean by a few tears usually watching it with one or two people but when I watched this I was sobbing uncontrollably, and this was in a packed cinema. It's given me mixed feelings, whether I want to see it again or not. Really makes you think.

Collette says:
The Crow... Fluke... The Perfect Storm... Armageddon...

Thursday's Child... (the first film I ever saw Rob Lowe in)

Ghost... (sobbed my heart out the first time I saw it)

White Christmas...(sounds pathetic but when Bing and co are gathered around the tree at the end singing I always have a tear in my eye)

Braveheart...(never fancied it until the other half persuaded me to watch it....cried that much at the end I thought I was gonna be sick. Brilliant film but one I can't watch too often)

I am going to mention Wilson! After a traumatic personal experience, thought I'd clear out the garden shed for therapy. I opened the door and there was WILSON! I hugged him, cried, put him back where he'd been for such a long while.... and the shed is still untouched. How can a ball make an adult cry?

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Sep 2009 21:39:54 BDT
Yes, of-course The Champ! Burning tears watching a lovely little boy hold his dying Daddy.

Shakespeare In Love always upsets me at the end- just the shere frustration of knowing that they can't be together. Moulin Rouge is heartbreaking as well, especially when Christian starts sobbing at the end- I blub along as well!

The Way We Were.
I cry in 3 place- when she's laid beside him in bed and she realises he doesn't know that it's her he's kissing and when Katie asks Hubble to stay with her until after she has the baby, and then at the end when she sees him with his new wife and she sweeps his hair aside you're begging for him to kiss her and see that she's the one, but it's just not ment to be no matter how much she loves him. then that lovely musucal number "memories" oh it's so good.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (All of it. Even just the memory of this film can start me off)
Tell no-one (The last scene is just totally overwhelming. I can feel the gigantic sob building until the reveal)
Pan's Labyrinth (Never finishes without at least a single tear rolling down)
Amores Perros.....and......Year Of The Dog (Both for similar reasons. Dog owners beware)
Secrets and Lies (The ultimate emotional wringer)
