    The last couple of episodes of Band of Brothers were real tearjerkers. Although I'm more often moved by real life stories than movies (I realize BoB is based on a tue story). Empire of the Sun was pretty moving at the end too. Movies and stories about kids who lose parents or are mistreated and about the mentally challenged in difficult situations tend to move me. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was another one.

    I will admit that I am a complete sap. I have been moved close to tears from those stupid red cross commercials where the dog saves the poor guy trapped under ruble.

    (You can take my man card when you can take me in a rusty knife fight or have more hair on your chest than I do. Until then, keep it zipped Sally.)

    At any rate, try any of these on for size:

    What Dreams May Come (would still probably make me cry- when he comes back in the room to his wife- ugh that is love).
    + 1 for Requiem
    + 1 to Animal Farm
    Old Yeller is borderline inappropriately sad.

    Can't think of a movie that brought me to tears. Maybe got the old knot in the throat over a couple, but can't remember exactly what they are. I have yet to see Marley and Me, but I've heard from every person that's seen it that the final 30-45 minutes of the movie is VERY sad. They actually emphasized how sad it was, so it must be mega.
  13. Maki, where are you? You need to revoke a lot of man cards in here.

    Moon Child always gets to me, especially at the end and when listening to two of the songs in the movie. Watched it with a friend and we were both a wreak by the end of it...which may or may not have been made worse by alcohol.

    But pretty much any film that has a sad part in it, or I've got attached to the main character and something happens to them, sets me off.

    if you think that is upsetting, try the UK made and as realistic as it was possible to be "threads"


    - this intro to it from an original showing will give you an idea of how strong it is, without giving too much away

    more harrowing to uk viewers who grew up in the '80s perhaps, but something you will never forget seeing, if you live to a hundred...
