Oh damn, absolutely that one. I also have to throw in a vote for My Girl.

And if we're getting a little off-topic, the only tv show that's ever made me cry is the end of Angel's "I Will Remember You". It doesn't matter how much I get myself ready for the ending, every single time it gets to me.

The entire list of movies that have kill me is too long to relate, but I'd say the standouts are:

Sophie's Choice
Midnight Cowboy
Going My Way
Man in the Moon

Let's just pretend I never mentioned the last one, okay?

Here's the list of movies that have effectively made me cry (although that certain time of the month MAY have had an influence in some of these):

Moon Child (Japanese movie)
American History X
Pay it Forward (I think that's what it was called)
The Green Mile (And the worst part was that I read the book beforehand, so I already knew what was going to happen)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The Last Samurai
Bambi (Aw c'mon, I was little)

That's all I can remember, for now.

Wow, at the end in the bathroom....I've seen that movie 20 times and still get choked up. Braveheart too, when he gets on his knees before Murran's parents or when young Murran gives him the flowers...I lose it.

I always lose it at the end of Dances With Wolves, when Wind In His Hair is yelling at the top of the hill that Dances With Wolves will always be his friend...

Mask, with Cher and Eric Stolz. It had some great lines and some heartwarming moments, but then he died at the end after going through so much.

I cried at E.T. when I was a kid, as virtually everyone did, but the movie that last made me well up was Rudy. Boy, that did a number on me. The scene where the team captain comes in to lay his jersey on Coach Devine's desk, and then the rest of the team follows him, is a near-tearer, but that whole final sequence where he finally gets to play and the whole stadium goes nuts is, I'm getting pumped up just thinking about it.

Fun story, my dad used to coach high school football, and loved the movie so much he showed it to his players before a big game. The team got really into it, and by the end were ready to run through walls. So, they go running out to the field, but the team room was on the second floor of the building, and the stairs were really steep. So, two kids tripped and fell, one breaking his collarbone and the other badly twisting his ankle. And that was the end of my dad's inspirational movie time.

I remember as a kid (and probably now if I watched it), the movie Savannah Smiles ( always got me.

And now that I have a son, the very thought of the movie "My Life" makes me wanna sob.

I don't really cry, but I get chills and really feel the moment.
Same when Aragorn does his little speech in front of the Black Gate.
And yeah, the tears do well up when Aragorn tells the hobbits they bow to noone.

The saddest movie? That's rather hard. Current mood and place in life must have had some affect too.
Actually, there are many movies which made me cry, or close to tears. Not many that haven't been said come to mind right now.
Last Samurai must be in the top 3 at least.

Finding Nemo. This is one of my favorite movies of all time, but the first five minutes are torturous. Even thinking about that and the ending (which is just such a release), is making my eyes well up.
