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.
Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:
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)

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...

ET (the movie about the alien, not the daily TV show about Hollywood stuff )
"Speaking of Thomases, I loved your recent Atrocious GM Summit column, although I think that you flatter Isiah Thomas far too much by suggesting that he is merely one of a number of atrocious GMs. The truth is that Rob Babcock and Billy King are Einstein next to him. The mess he is creating right now in New York will be studied by business school students 50 years from now alongside Enron and pets.com."
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 just....wow, 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 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.
The best thing out for kids right now is Yo Gabba Gabba. It has a great balance of goofiness and innocense for a pre-k kids show. It also does the random celeb cameo thing that Sesame Street was known for. They've had Jack Black and Elijah Wood on.
