I bawl like a baby anytime I watch "What Dreams My Come". You'll probably all think I'm a goober for this one, but I can't make it through the end of "Untamed Heart" either. I get teary eyed just thinking about that one.
Okay, seriously, this might sound silly, but I try to avoid those kinds of movies. Crying at a movie makes me feel all weird and sad, obviously. i can't remember the last time a movie mad me cry. BUT!....I do remember watching "A walk to remember" as mentioned earlier and I believe I cried at that one.
I'm just a weiny and I don't like to be sad, I'm a dork, teeheee
The Perfect Storm...I start crying while the open titles are still being shown. That somber music playing as they show the wall with all of the boats and crews that have gone down. Just knowing that this is a true story and all those people lost their lives...does it to me every time.
How could I have forgotten "The Notebook"! My DH and I both cried at that one. Also the Orphanage. It was supposed to be a horror movie, but I cried through the entire last 10 minutes of it. I was equally traumatized by Pan's Labyrinth too.
Here's a few more that got me when I was a kid:
The Land Before Time - Are there any children who haven't been traumatized by this movie???
Dumbo - If you don't tear up when the mom is singing to Dumbo through the jail bars, you have a heart of stone!
I'm with Mocha. The saddest movies are the ones I haven't seen because I'm a weanie. I remember seeing Midnight Cowboy when I was young and impressionable and the plight of the Dustin Hoffman character haunted me for decades. I have successfully avoided Sophie's Choice and many others of that type to this day.
Bridge to Terabithia made me cry almost the entire movie.
Up! Had me near outright sobbing in the theatre.
On a separate but related topic - I can't read or even describe "The Giving Tree" without crying. I tried to recap it for my husband but was crying so much my 10 yr old daughter had to take over for me. My DH was crying by that time too.
The worst movie I cried at was Titanic. Some girl friends and I seen it and my eyes were so swollen I could hardly drive home from the movie theater.
My dog skip is one of my favorite movies!! I actually found it in a discount bin at Walmart....that was a good day. That being said the ending truly rips out my heart strings and I loose it every time.
Can't watch Dumbo or Bambie, either. (most of those animated films - I can't bear animal pain or abuse, even when it's cartoons)
Gorillas in the Mist I was almost hysterical. Forget kleenex - I was using paper towels!!
I remember seeing The Joy Luck Club in the theater and at certain parts the movie gets really quiet and you could hear people literally sobbing all over the theater.
E.T. (end end kills me to even think about - "ouch").
And a movie from the '70s I saw repeatedly as a kid that tore me up every time called Six Weeks. About a young ballet dancer with terminal cancer. If you can find it somewhere, I highly recommend it, just have a box of kleenex with you - you'll need it!
I can't believe nobody mentioned The Notebook with James Garner!! His wife has alzheimers and he visits her in a nursing home every single day and reads her the story of their life together. The ending is the killer! Another one is Phenomenon with John Travolta... The one line that always tears me up is when he's in the hospital and he asks his girlfriend if she'll love him for the rest of his life and she replies no but I'll love you for the rest of my mine. Both of these movies are great!!
