I've never actually seen the movie, but I read the book several times and cried like a little girl every time. I haven't read it in years, but I have a feeling that it would still cause the room to get quite dusty.

I cry at the end of just about every sports movie where the plucky underdog comes up and wins. I'm a Cubs fan...I suppose I'm transferring things or something. Especially Major League. Also Saving Private Ryan among others. This list really stops at Brian's Song, though.

    The latter being the only good thing Vin Diesel will ever be in.

You didnt think SAVING PRIVATE RYAN was any good?

"My First Mister". BRILLIANT movie.

"A.I. Artifical Intelligence" is actually the only movie to make me tear up...but it was over loss of the money I spent on the ticket to that stupid sucky movie.

Oh, God. That movie. I cried like a baby on an airplane (in the seat right behind wherever you are) at that movie.

I'm convinced that this movie will get to pretty much any guy who's ever had troubles with his dad. Which probably means about 95% of all men. I remember when I was still living in a dorm and only got maybe three channels on my antenna. A bunch of friends and I had been having some beers and watching a ballgame; when the game ended, we flipped over to UPN and found the last 45 minutes of this movie on. At the, "Hey, Dad, wanna have a catch?" scene, everyone in the room was doing the eyes-welling-up, no-I'm-not-crying, *cough* let's-watch-something-involving-boobs-and-guns thing.

I think any movie about dogs automatically makes it a huge potential tear-jerker. Although it's not a movie, I can't watch Futurama's "Jurassic Bark" anymore. It just makes me incredibly sad.

The one that made me absolutely break down and cry like a baby in the middle of the theater was Permanent Record ( Of course, that might be because it's about a gifted student committing suicide and it came out about a month or so after my college roommate committed suicide. I still can't watch it 18 years later without bawling my eyes out.

"The Luck of the Fryrish" never fails to get to me. Especially how the Breakfast Club Soundtrack goes from joke to immensely poignant at the end.

Seriously though. Grave of the Fireflies. Two kids starve to death in front of your eyes.

I didn't find it sad at all, but I just want to say I've watched the Shawshank Redemption around 16 (sixteen) times. Without a doubt, it's my favorite movie of all time.

Throw in a another vote for Amragedden. I didn't actually cry, but it certainly pulls on the heartstrings. But the saddest movie for me (and this may sound really lame) but "A Walk to Remember" nailed me pretty fiercly. I won't watch that movie again because I don't think I'd be able to make it through without crying (barely made it through the first time).

No votes for this one yet, so I will throw in "My Girl" when Macauley Culkin dies and the girl talks about him "just needing his glasses." That got me right there.

I teared up at "Titanic," but not at the end. I was more upset when the old couple just lies down in their small room on their bed and die together.

Armageddon gets me too, but it's the part when Chick is walking down the tarmac & his young son comes running towards him.

Oh my yes. Brad Bird for President.

That, and watching "The Day After" is a lot harder when you have a fiancee. Watching the daughter realize she can't remember her fiance's face and then crumbling into her unused wedding dress is NOT FUN.

I got a daughter about her age and I go off on a regular basis (rarely to an astoroid, tho), so it gets me. But yeah, then too.

Saddest was probably "My Dog Skip" - we saw it less than a month after we had to help a dog that I'd had for 11 years go to the Rainbow Bridge.

"The World According to Garp" and "Million Dollar Baby" also seem to stir up dust in my house.

"Terms of Endearment." When it hits the scene in the hospital when she says be good to the little boy, I instantly become that movie's bitch.

"Vanilla Sky." Shut up. This movie means so much to me, it's a bit ridiculous.

And finally... that scene in "The Patriot" when the little girl promises she'll say anything, so long as Mel Gibson doesn't leave again.

Old Yeller, My Dog Skip, and Brian's Song are definitely sad movies, as are several of the others posted here.

As for movies that make me cry, Field of Dreams, AI, and (one of my alltime favorites) Rudy will do that, but I wouldn't consider them sad movies.

By far the saddest movie I've ever seen is "Dancer in the Dark" with Bjork. I was practically wailing through the whole last act.

The aforementioned "Iron Giant" (SU-PER-MAN!) got me pretty bad.

My second biggest cry came at the end of "Return of the King", but it wasn't necessarily sadness. It was more along the lines of the "underdog triumpant" thing that Whitebacon mentioned. I'm a mess during the Sam/Frodo scenes in Mordor and when everyone bows to the Hobbits.

The Dog Who Stopped The War. The ending was amazingly sad and mature for a kids movie, but it still gives me tears.

I looked through the thread and didn't see it, so let me add the ending of Wrath of Khan here. I mean, I know what Spock's going to do, and I know the next movie undoes the tragic ending... but still, it gets a little dusty in the house every damn time!

It doesn't affect me the same way it did when I was a kid. But for a couple of years after I saw it in the theater, it was the saddest movie I'd (then) ever seen.

I remember crying when I was a little kid at Superman 3. (I don't remember why.)

A League of Their Own- I was watching this by myself and they started singing that "All American Girls" song and I cried like a 8 year old girl. Afterward I was like "what was *that*"??

In the wrestling world-The Matt and Lita kiss in the Desire video (what a waste) and the Benoit title victory simply because I avoided the internet during the whole build up.
