    For me, it was this movie called "My Life" with Michael Keaton and Nicole Kidman. Its about a man the is having a child but finds out he has terminal cancer so he video tapes hi slast days so that his son will know who he was. I am not emotional at all. I even have been told i can be too cold, but this movie just got me. It was really good, but it made me extremely sad.icon_cry.gif

    I recently saw Fried Green Tomatoes again on tv. That movie just kills me. I don't know if its cause i'm from the south, or what, but I definitely identify with those characters.

    When Ruth sends the letter to Idgie that says "Whither thou goest I will go. Where thou lodgest, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people."

    Its such a desperate cry for help coded in such beautiful verse. That movie gets me every time.

    Brokeback Mountain above all others. I was emotionally blown away for over a week.

    I have not seen brokeback mountain, so maybe would be different otherwise. But as of right now, I would have to say it would be the Masterpiece Theatre's David Copperfield. Of course, it aired like many years ago, but I still remember much of it. The poor boy is just going through one bad turn of events after another yet he refuses to become hardened or mad. I remember actually crying several times as the movie takes yet another turn for the worse for him.. it's just so sad. But there is good news, in the end he grows up to be quite a handsome guy. icon_biggrin.gif

    The Devil Wears Prada. So much potential -- such a crappy movie.

    Dekalog by Krzystof Kieslowski. I was crying over "thou shalt have no other god before me" for a month.

    Boys Don't Cry

    The most recent one in memory. Once it was over, my friend and each silently wiped away a tear and did not say a thing all the way back home.

    A great movie, one that I cannot watch again.

    There are some movies that I can't watch because they effect me in such a way
    Big Boys Don't cry is one
    Movies about the Holocaust or War movies like Platoon

    But the one movie that constantly blows me away
    and it's not the entire movie is the end of Broke Back Mountain where Ennis goes back to Jack's House and finds his shirt
    when he comes back down and has it and Jack's mother gives him the paper bag
    it was one of the most sad and touching scenes I have ever seen on film

    I have to say Brokeback Mountain and Latted Days which are both of gay interest. They bring out so many emotions icon_cry.gif

    One of the best movies I've ever seen...so sad. I remember seeing it when it first came out. One of my favourites, but one I haven't been able to watch more than once.

    "The Hours". There is a scene in that movie that brings back traumatic moments from my early childhood. It is when Julianne Moore's character abandons her son and he is yelling and crying and being held back by the babysitter.

    I virtually never cry in movies, but I was an emotional wreck watching that scene. Sometimes I wish my memory for emotions was lousy.

    I don't know if I would call it "sad" but more tears of joy...the movie "AUGUST RUSH" brought me to tears -- twice during that movie. I literally wept at the end. Probably one of the best tear-jerkers I have ever seen If you a re a sucker for a great love story, and especially if you have an appreciation for music, I highly recommend renting "AUGUST RUSH".


    After that I would have to say the movie "LIFE IS A HOUSE" with Michael Keaton and Hayden Christiansen -- very sad father/son story about a father who, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, convinces his troubled son to help him build his dream house.

    Why, did you have somewhere more important to be when you saw the movie...like an ugly skirt convention????

    That's all

    This may seem strange but I would have to say "The Bucket List".

    The topic is difficult enough and, it certainly wasn't the greatest movie but they tried to make you laugh. Unfortunately, it brought up horrible memories of when my brother passed away. I was on a plane and tears streamed down my face for most of the movie. I won't try to see it again.

    One True Thing with Meryl Streep, Rene Zellweger and William Hurt. Great movie - very strong performances by Meryl Streep whom I think is one of the greatest actress of our time, and Rene Zellweger. I could totally relate to the movie since I chose to go to a university close by to take care of my mom right before she passed away.
