What movie makes you cry?

    What movie makes you cry?

    What is the last movie that made you cry or the movie that will always, without a doubt make you cry, despite how many times you've seen it?

    Well...whether I should be admitting this at all will be a debated issue! While it didn't make me uncontrollably cry, the saddest film I saw was probably Homeward Bound. I found the story really sad and any film involving animals who are lost or in trouble certainly makes me worry about them..however fictional it is!

      I was so hoping that men wouldn't be afraid to answer this question... men cry too! Aww, Homeward Bound, that always seems to get little kids and grown boys :-) .. It is sad, a lot of animal movies are sad. I think Shiloh made me cry.

    Oh I cry at commercials that show fathers and daughters together so I am not a very good barometer for what makes people cry.  One movie that has always made me cry is Walk to Remember with Mandy Moore. It is such a sweet, emotional movie.  I've probably seen it 4 or 5 times.

      I found one other person in the world that says they cry over commercials! :-) How cute. I'm pretty sure I shed at least a tear over that movie. I think it says something about someone who is so easily touched; we have huge sympathetic hearts! Thanks

      Aw, that's too cute! When an animated movie can bring tears, it's a good movie! I saw Titanic in the theaters months after it came out, knowing how it ended didn't stop me from losing it, in public no less. I had to go the restroom to get it together

    I am horrible at recalling movie titles, I don't know why but I watched a few that made me cry this year already. I cry during them commercials about animal abuse or the ones showing children starving... I am a very sensitive person. I actually don't watch much TV anymore but when I did... I had to change the channel because of certain commercials. The sight of other people crying makes me cry.

      Those ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan are horribly disturbing! I think it is easier to cry when someone on TV reaches that point too! It's almost like we put ourselves in their situations. To a certain extent, I think it's good to cry and shar

    "Gone with the wind"...no matter how many times I see it.  Disney's "Up" gets me every time too.  Lots more because I cry very easily, but those are the 2 biggies.

      Well you certainly don't limit yourself to genres do you? From "Gone with the Wind" to "Up"? It has been years since I have seen "Gone with the Wind", but I remember as a small child my mother supporting "Kleenex's" business over that movie!

      Acting was so different in that era wasn't it? They way actors talked and interacted; it was so dramatical. I do watch some movies today, but they were something else back then. That's why they're called classics!

    Okay since Souther29 fessed up I will too - I am a cry baby in certain situations - movies in which someone overcomes some fear or handicap and has a success tear me up.  But the biggie is a movie where there is a loving and sensuous woman/man relationship will also get me to blubbering - I think both are from envy.

      Thank you! The overcoming of obstacles is always a great one, of course the better the story and the better the acting, the better the cry! And ah, yes, the love stories, they get me almost every time, probably an envy thing I'm sure!

      Well that makes me feel better; I can't seem to get through a Pampers commercial anymore! No, just kidding, but if I watch anything and get pulled into, I will probably cry, if it's touching. I think we put ourselves in the moment? Personalize it?

    I cried over an episode of "The Big Bang Theory" !!! It was the one in which Sheldon was trying to anticipate what meaningless present Penny was going to give him at Christmas and planned to respond with an equivalent gift.  So he bought about 10 different bath product baskets of various sizes each wrapped up in colored cellophane, ready to give her whatever size seemed equal to her gift.  Penny then comes in and gives Sheldon a napkin from the Cheesecake Factory signed by Leonard Nimoy whom she had waited on.  Sheldon is awestruck.  He runs into the bedroom the bedroom and scoops up ALL of the baskets.  When Penny asks, "Sheldon?" He says "I know, "It's not enough, is it?" and hugs her as warmly as Sheldon can hug a person in his stiff robotic way. (One of the most poignant pieces of acting and writing I've seen in 68 years. I really can't explain why that touches me so.)  Jason Segel's portrayal of Marshall listening to a voice message from his dead father was a close second. (I had a chance to meet him once and told him so.)

      Billie,
      Awww, I can't say that I've ever seen the episode (sounds worthy of checking out :-)... but I think the simplicity and Sheldon's innocence make him seem vulunerable and you can't help but feel for him.
      How awesome you had a chance to meet hi

    I'm going to have to say Forrest Gump. I love the movie so much but when it gets to the scene where Forrest is standing next to Jenny's grave under their tree.... I just lose it.

    I'm always doing okay, but then Tom Hanks says "I miss you, Jenny" and it's just all over for me.
