Movies that made you cry like a baby!! ( Chicks welcome also!!)

Ok I must admit I'm a naturally sarcastic guy but there are movies that got me crying in moments of weakness .

-Forrest Gump; when Jenny tells Forrest that their kid isn't as "challenged" as Forrest.

-Dead Poets Society; Captain my Captain when all the kids stand on their desks.

-Terms of Endearment.

-An Officer and a Gentleman; why did Richard Gere's best bud have to do THAT !!!!!

-The Lion King

-The Green Mile

-Old Yeller ; am NEVER watching this one again , dogs have always been in my life

Which movie gets YOU teary eyed? (besides Joe Pesci in Goodfellas )

Forrest Gump - When Forrest talks at Jenny's grave and his reaction to being a father; I wept.

Shawshank Redemption - Red: Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'

Field of Dreams - Dad, you wanna have a catch?

Saving Private Ryan - Angels on our shoulders...

The Majestic - When Peter is testifying and the whole town is watching it on TV.

The Sound of Music--when the Austrians at the festival all join in and sing Edelweiss with the von Trapp family.

Charlotte's Web--When Wilbur goes into his bit about how not many people are good friends or good writers, but Charlotte was both.

Dark City--I don't really cry, but there are a couple parts that are sooooo romantic that I get all misty-eyed.

Field of Dreams

Life as a House (though that was sooooo cheap)

Requiem for a Dream, (the teath chatering scene and of course the ending)

A Simple Plan (u know where)

Sunshine (when they read the address over the radio... powerful, powerful stuff)

Schindler's List (end)

American History X (u know where)

Dancer in the Dark (a couple places)

and if I went back to the last few threads where we did the same thing, I'm sure I'd find a few others

I cried most recently in the Patriot, where the little girl who has never spoken is saying goodbye to her father.

Completely manipulative i know, but still - waterworks.

I'll admit that Titanic had me bawling. Not because of Jack of course, but just over the whole disaster in general. I know there are a lot of Titanic bashers here, but dang, it got to me.
I also cried during What Dreams May Come when Robin Williams was in Hell trying to talk to his wife.

Dancer in the Dark got me to bust tears - other than that, none of the films mentioned got me to cry... You babies wanna REALLY cry? Go watch Fly Me To Polaris... I had to literally stop the movie several times so I could go cry into the sink and blow my nose because I couldn't breathe.

Forrest Gump gets me every time but I will always remeber when two girls in my science class grabbed the tissues during the end of Armageddon. I was sort of laughing at them.

Episode 1, because Jar Jar was so crap and ruined the movie!

Seriously though, I had to hold back when I first saw Armageddon.
