    Okay, gents-- let's hear it. This thread is the space where you list movies that you're willing to admit made you cry. Since it's my post (although there seems to be a theme of late) I make the rules-- "welling up" doesn't count.

    I'm talking crying like a little girl. I've got more than a few (I've got a bunch of father issues-- it isn't hard to get me going). But I'll throw this one out there as my first:

    Ordinary People.

    Dumbo

    No, I'm serious. The part where Dumbo goes to see his mum for the first time in a while, and he walks outside his mum's cage........his mum picks him up with his trunk and rocks him back and forth while he nuzzles up against her and..........and.....

    *runs off and grabs some tissues for crying and......other things*

    Patch Adams
    Finding Neverland
    On The Beach (Aussie mini-series made into a long movie)
    love actually

    Basically I'm a sucker for romantic comedies, not so much the schmaltzy american ones but the british ones - Richard Curtis is a genius.

    I can't think of a single film that's made me cry, although if you're happy to branch this out a little into TV, I shed a tear or two when Rachel died in Cold Feet. It was so sad... :eek:

    EDIT: I'm filling up thinking about it even now... :p

    In retrospect, yes.. but the 'Naked Guns' weren't so sucktacular. Either that or I smoked WAY more pot back then. That's probably it.

    A Beautiful Mind and American Beauty.

    A few others have brought me close to tears, but these two are the only ones which actually made the water trickle.

    Requiem for a Dream. Watching that movie is like getting hit by a truck. It's stunning, in a very literal sense.

    Also, the final episode of Black Adder Goes Forth. :(

    I come from a long line of weepy men, so a comprehensive list would be almost impossible to construct. ;)

    Number one on the list has to be the scene in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Atticus is sitting out on the porch in the evening after the kids have gone to bed. He hears Scout asking Jem questions about their mother, who Scout doesn't remember because she died when Scout was a baby. I am welling up just thinking about it.

    As iSaint mentioned earlier, there's She's Having a Baby. You know the scene, towards the end of the movie, when he goes to see his wife and believes that they've lost the baby.

    I'm surprised that no one's mentioned E.T. yet: "I'll be right here."

    Let's see... Driving Miss Daisy, the scene where she tells Hoke, "You're my best friend."

    I tend to fall for well made violence.

    Saving Private Ryan when they shift back from young Ryan to the cemetary. I don't like watching it when other people are around. I hope this doesn't politicize the thread, but I saw Passion of the Christ last week for the first time, and the actual violence didn't faze me, but when the "good thief" repremanded the bad thief, there were tears (but not crying - I don't cry). I haven't seen it in a while, but if I remember right, I started to well up (maybe cry - I'm not sure) when the Army began to deliver news of the deaths in We Were Soldiers. Of course, that doesn't include the Pixars. Almost all the father/child moments get me crying - Merlin/Nemo, Sully/Boo, Bob/family, etc.

    Good Will Hunting

    Saving Private Ryan

    Rocky (think back to the first time you ever saw it.... very touching)

    I'm sure there are a few more, but those spring to mind right now.

    I don't think I've ever cried during a movie. Have the eyes well up a bit yeah, but never actual tears.

    I'm not really a crier - The last time I cried was seven years ago. And yes I remember it very vividly, it takes a lot to get me to cry.

    Was that intentional or just freakish coincidence?
