Funny. If you meant tears of rage, then I'll have to change my answer ...

Pretty much the only acceptable manswer.

Edit: there are many more I've cried at.

Re: Movies that made you cry.

Like many here, Field of Dreams is the only movie a guy can admit he cries at the end and not get called a pussy

-I do get choked up at the end of Rocky when Adrian rushes into the ring

-The End of Hoosiers always gives me goosebumps too as that is the ultimate feelgood movie.

Re: Movies that made you cry.

There are some that make me well up when I see them and I wipe away a few tears during scenes here and there, but one that made me cry like a baby was Iron Giant. And the few times I watched it on DVD it would make me cry just the same.

Re: Movies that made you cry.

Definitely the end of Field of Dreams is one. My dad had recently been killed in a wreck (other guy had been drinking) and a friend wanted to get me out of the house. This being pre-internet for us, neither of us had any idea what the movie was about; needless to say, it made for a bit of discomfort.

Others that at least put me on the verge of tears if not outright crying:
The Elephant Man
The Straight Story
The Iron Giant
The Shawshank Redemption
Grave of the Fireflies
Ikiru
Hoosiers


Oh yeah, at several points during Band of Brothers. There are a decent few that I've just not thought of right now, I'm sure.

Shawshank Redemption and Independence Day. When Randy Quaid says "Tell my kids I love them very much" it gets to me every time. Also when the President's daughter asks "Is mommy sleeping now?"
