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.

If it's sad.. I cry!

Summersby ( Richard Gere!!) I went with a friend one night, the next night I went with my mom, the next day with another friend and I bawled each time. I've rented it many times and I start crying before it even gets sad.

Cold Mountain
Brokeback Mountain
Sound of Music
Bridges of Madison County

I could go on and on!

Spinal Tap. I had tears rolling down my face as I gasped for air.

Why do you think most sheep herders work solo, BT?

Never saw Terms of Endearment, but if I do now I'll be ready

I'll swell from time to time, animal type movies like mentioned or serious dramas that I pay too much attention to , but one that might be a bit obscure and just came back to me is Day of the Dolphin. Probably considered a B movie, but it had George C Scott in it and I liked it. The end was a killer.

There have been a few but the one that stands out in my mind is Life As A House. If you haven't seen it and you need a good cry - this is the one. Kevin Kline is outstanding.
