Movie List Challenge: Favorite Tearjerkers

Put your mini tissue pack in your purse: opening this week, The Greatest stars Carey Mulligan as a lovelorn pregnant teen whose boyfriend is killed in a car accident. After surviving the crash, she must move in with his grieving family. Clearly, it's a recipe for tears, shaking shoulders, and a runny nose.

Not that there's anything wrong with that — I've been known to pop in a movie for the sole purpose of giving myself a good cry. My go-to is Steel Magnolias, and I never have a dry face when I watch the end of My Girl. So for this week's Movie List Challenge, I want to hear about the films that make you sob. Sad tears, happy tears, whatever: make your list of favorite tearjerkers and submit it to the Movie List group in the community. I'll be checking in with your submissions, so you may see your post right here on the home page!

dvdsky81...Big Fish is a tear jerker but great movie. I watched it on a second date 2 months after my Dad passed away not realizing what it was about. Kind of scared the guy off. I'll agree with Armageddon. Also A Walk to Remember.

Usually if a movie makes me cry, I only cry the first time I see it and then I'm good. These movies include E.T., Titanic, My Girl and The Notebook. Only two movies I've seen make me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME: Stepmom (the end when Susan Sarandon is talking to her kids individually makes me bawl like a baby) and Up (old people make me sob, end of story).

Marley and Me. I (wisely!) chose to buy the movie and watch it at home alone as opposed to viewing it in a public theater. I was a wailing snot fountain at the end!

Terms of Endearment, yo. And Big Fish. OMG Big Fish. Most Amazing beautiful movie of all time. Tim Burton's masterpiece for me. That ending is amazing...of course it probably didn't help that I saw it the night my mother passed not realizing the premise of the movie.. Yeah either really bad or really good timing....haven't been able to decide. I needed to do something to get my mind off of it and to stop my tears. Big Fish had just come out on video so we went up and got it...holy sh!t. It did not stop my tears, but it did make me feel better about my mom's passing in a few ways. Those that have seen it may know what I mean but I dont want to ruin it for those that haven't.

I definitely sobbed when I first saw Titanic back in the day. Into the Wild. And any movie that involves animals like Old Yeller or My Dog Skip.

The movie "King Kong" staring Naomi Watts. Yeah know it's a fake giant gorilla but whenever I see how badly he's treated, what with all those realistic sappy facial expressions CGI gave him, I bawl like a baby everytime. Gorillas are my favorite animal and I get choked up everytime I see one for some crazy reason.
