Do Tell: What Movie Moment Makes You Cry Every Time?

I’m a sucker for a good drama, and when the seriously sad stuff gets ramped up, I have no shame in just letting the tears dribble down my face. But lately, it’s not just the dramatic moments that get me going; it’s the funny ones too. Something about the goofy, light-hearted scenes makes me nostalgic for old friends and being a kid again. I’m sure there are a few of you out there like me, so do tell, what movie moment makes you cry each and every time?

I forgot to add that when I watch Moulin Rouge I'm in tears fir half of it. When the Duke beats Satine I just lose it, and when Satine dies I'm nearly in hysterics. After a few glasses of wine I also bawl when ever they sing "Come What May." I also cry at the end of Beauty and the Beast when Belle tells the Beast she loves him. Ever After gets me, when Nicole's secret is discovered and she runs away in disgrace. I also cry at the end of the second and fourth series of Doctor Who, when the Doctor says goodbye to Rose at Bad Wolf Bay (Both times) and when he has to wipe Donna's memory to save her life.

shawshank - brooks' letter back to the guys in prison. it's completely heartbreaking. Forrest Gump, when forrest and jenny hug in the middle of the reflecting pool at the anti war rally. i watch that scene on repeat. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE!!! don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it... but it's definitely a fav.

Oh man, I was HYSTERICAL in I Am Legend over Sam's death. The Notebook - from the rain scene until the end. Pursuit of Happyness, when he's offered the job (again, hysterical. Oh, Will Smith). End of Brokeback Mountain. Ooh, Fever Pitch, when she runs across Fenway (seriously, what is wrong with me?).

Every time I watch Elf, and everyone starts caroling to raise Christmas spirit - I have no idea why I always get choked up. I blame inheriting my mother's overly sensitive nature. >.<

I just watched Armageddon. That is a really good movie, but so sad when Bruce Willis' character dies; after all the pictures show of his daughter. And his talk with Ben Affleck's character about his daughter, but it's good to know that he saved all of mankind. In the movie.

I've never cried as much in ANY movie, as I did when I was watching The Pianist. Seriously, I couldn't control see what human beings can do to each other. Oh, and another tear-jerker is the movie Hotel Rwanda when the nuns and priests have to abandon the children from their orphanages because the U.N. ordered them to leave.

The Color Purple- At the end, when Celie reunites wither her sister Nettie after more than 20 yrs of being apart and meets her own children for the very first time. :cry: That scene always gets me everytime.

In the movie CLICK when Adam Sandler's character is dying and says his goodbyes to his family - especially when he looks at his ex wife and asks "will you still love me in the morning?" and she replies "forever and ever, babe". Also chokes me up when he rewinds back to the last moment he saw his father before he died. In LITTLE BLACK BOOK when Brittany Murphy's character is confronting her boyfriend on Kippy's TV show and says to him: "If we were the share our lives together, why didn't we share our lives together? I know you don't have to tell me everything Derek, but why wouldn't you want to?" - Gets me every time because this reminds me of my own frustration on how a relationship should really be. Guys hide too much. In LIFE AS A HOUSE when Hayden Christensen's character comes to terms with his father as he is dying with cancer. This whole movie is emotional, but when Hayden's character visits his father at the hospital and turns his bed to the window to show him the progress on the house they were building together, I start bawling. Especially when Hayden's character promises his father he will finish it for him. Tear!

I cry in most movies, but the two worst for me are Braveheart (I usually keep crying for a few hours even after the end of the movie) and Once... at the very end when the piano is delivered to her little apartment and he is walking through the airport smiling, plus the music on top of it all... I can't resist!

Haha! Wilson? I don't know about making me cry, but making me laugh hysterically? Definitely! LOL!

All of the above and... Wilson! Wilsoooooon! Many could agree with me. I never thought I could cry because someone lost a volleyball. But it was so touching in the most bizarre way.

Gone With the Wind, when Rhett leaves Scarlett at the end, after she finally realizes she's loved him all along, but too late and now she's alone... I'm surprised at how little Gone With the Wind I've seen, I cry through basically all of it!

I'm pretty much a man's man. You know, DIY, I drink beer, I watch & play sports, I kick-box. But for the life of me, I can't sit through The Notebook and keep a dry eye. It's impossible!

I feel ridiculous typing all these comments, but Old Yeller was so sad when the dog was fighting with the wolf. I was absolutely sobbing. I can't stand to watch animals get hurt, so any movie that an animal gets hurt in, I hate it.

I don't know what it is, but I didn't cry when I watched The Notebook. Good movie though.

Flicka- Towards the end when the horse gets attacked and the girl is sick and says "It's OK Daddy, you can shoot us." Ohhhhhh! Also Pay it Forward, when the people come out with the candles. I hate that movie, it's way too sad. I'll never watch it again.

I cry every time at the end of The Painted Veil, when her husband dies just as she's beginning to love him. She's going through his things and just collapses on the floor. Heart-wrenching!
