Movies that made you cry

What are some of the movies that made you cry. With me it was:

Bambi
Terms fo Endearment
The Greatest Story Ever Told
The Bells Of St. Mary's
Big Fish

And almost all feature films with animals in them, you know something terrible is going to happen. I just don't watch them anymore.

Somewhere In Time , Bambi, The Shadowlands, Terms of Endearment. Mostly movies with sad endings or happy endings.

There are more but can't remember the names of the movies.

Just remembered one ... Where the Red Fern Grows , The Kid (Charlie Chaplin movie)
I like the silent movies

I knew that Terms of Endearment was a tearjerker......only I thought that it was the Shirley Maclaine mother's part that died of breast cancer so when one of my best friends invited to go I readily accepted...did not know that it was Deborah Winger's younger mother's role with the 3 young children who died.....I was the eldest of 4 and at aged 9 my mother died of breast cancer......I had to leave during the part where she's telling her kids goodbye.....the army hospital that my mother was in would not allow kids in---never did get to say goodbye to her ......it just brought back such painful memories........so that movie is the biggest tearjerker for me

It would be easier for me to list the movies that did not make me cry.

I can find something to cry about in just about every movie.
