    It was "Life is Beautiful" for me.

    Would you care to give yours, if any?

      Imitation Of Life, right at the end where the daughter realises how much her mother loved her and that she herself has lost the only person who really loved her.

      The Disney/Pixar movie, "Up" made me tear up during the opening segment. For those of you who have seen it, you know what I'm talking about.

    May sound weird, but there have been so many one that sticks out is 8 seconds. The point where the one bull rider Tuff Hediman rides the bull an extra 8 seconds for his friend who was killed by that bull, and does the wave to the crowd. But I am a softy and have cried through many movies.

    Schindler's List was truly emotional for me

    I cant remember what the name of it was but there was just a movie I watched recently. The girl had lukemia and the parents had another child to use medically for her. The child ended up taking her parents to court to be meically emacipated and her sister died.

    Terms of Endearment.  It probably didn't help that it was about a mother of three young kids dying, because I had my own three young kids at the time; but - oh, brother. 

    The other one was (believe it or not) Land Before Time.  I unwittingly bought that for my kids, and we all settled in to watch it.  One son was 12.  One son was 7.  My daughter was 4.  There was one part where the whole lot of us were all in varying degrees of tears/upset.  (I hid the movie after that. hmm)

    there is a scene in I Am Sam where I burst out crying, sobbing.. it affected me so much I wrote a hub inspired by the movie.

    a couple others off the top of my head.. Schindler's List. I can't watch it again.

    Gladiator.. it's not just the movie itself, it's the music.
    very moving.

    I had the same reaction to Land Before Time -- I watched it with my young son and it just brought out all the maternal instincts.
    Forget Mamma Grizzlies -- Mamma Brontosauruses rule!

    One that I remember bawling my eyes out in the theater over was The Boxer with Daniel-Day Lewis. OMG, mascara running down my cheeks and everything!

    The Notebook.  Some happiness but so sad at the same time.

    La Vie en Rose ... I didn't actually cry, but was very moved when Edith sang 'Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien' at the finish. I think it was the way she moved out onto the stage as frail as she was, then belted out that song. Of course, it was only an actress in a movie miming to Edith Piaf, but still ...

    City of Angels.... gosh, that movie was such an emotional roller coaster. Made me cry like a baby!

      Marley and Me was a sad movie.. I watched it with a group of friends and I think half of them were crying by the time it ended..

        I was crying like the whole second half of Marley and Me!!!

      I was not sad,  even the Irish were accepted in the end.

      Don't feel down

    Ya might laugh at me for this, but when poor Simba's father got trampled, I cried like a baby.. I'm not at all afraid to admit that The Lion King had that effect on me.

      No laughing at all.  You have to be careful about what Disney movies you watch.  smile    We took our kids to see Oliver (the Disney version, with Oliver being a cat).   There was the box of kittens on a city street in the rain.  All the kittens were taken by someone who wanted a kitten - except for Oliver.  Oh, brother....    roll  I had to make sure my kids didn't see my face with that particular "knee-slapper"   (sarcasm, of course).    hmm

    I've cried at lots of movies, but The Color Purple did me in.

    1. Lisa HW profile image82
      Lisa HWposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I wouldn't even go see that one because I had a pretty good idea it was "one of those movies", based just on seeing snippets and hearing about it.   hmm  If I think I see those movies coming I won't go see them.

    It's a secret! No, I'm just kidding. It's been such a long time for the real good ones to weep over, but I couldn't help but shed a tear when I watched Avatar... at the end.

    Boohoo. Sorry, I didn't cry shamelessly. Only movie I cry like that is abuse stories.

    'Precious'  was the last one I boo hooed about, although there have been many in the past.

    Movies that have happy endings are as likely to make me cry as sad movies.
    It's a Wonderful Life
    White Christmas (when the troops stand up for General Waverly the waterworks turn on for me)
    Jane Eyre
    Pride & Prejudice

    Yup, good thing I own stock in Puffs lol

      Years ago I saw one with Van Johnson starring.  It was about a guy and a dog.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050589/   I just had to find it because I didn't even know the name of it.

      I watched it unwittingly one day when it was on tv.  Oh brother....   It looks like a harmless movie in the beginning, and it's OK enough to watch (as far as Van Johnson/dog/vaudeville movies go.   lol   The dog gets separated from Van Johnson but finds his way miles back to Van Johnson (through the snow, I think - and - like - miles and miles of walking down railroad tracks).  OMG!!   I didn't see it coming, but, again - other, brother.   Never have I sobbed so much over a movie!    lol   (and - really - the ending was happy)
