For me it was Brother Bear and Finding Neverland. Didn't help that I was in school when I saw Finding Neverland. ><

There's a lot, but the one that really stands out is When A Man Loves A Woman

"Bird of Paradise" where they tossed Debra Pagent into the exploding volcano to appease the gods and her lover Louis Jourdan had to sail away heartbroken. . . I could not understand how people could bear that sort of sorror . I was about 9 and cried and sobbed and carried on so uncontrollably to where my parents held me in the bathtub and turned cold water on me. . .

:roll:

"Safe" by Todd Haynes
"The Hours" the scenes featuring Julianne Moore
"Mulholland Drive" by David Lynch ( the song in the nightclub )
"3:10 to Yuma" with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale ( the end )
"Adaptation" by Charlie Kaufman with Nicholas Cage ( near the end )
Dumbo ( the bit when Dumbo's mother swings him in her trunk )

and there's been quite a few others over the years, but I'm not sure how many of them would still have that effect.

PS. I took my son ( AS/PDD ) to see the first/second? "Stuart Little" film, when he was four years old, and he burst out crying, broken-heartedly, when the toy plane ( that really flew ) crashed in the park in the first scene almost. He couldn't bear to see something so wonderful smashed/ruined, "wasted" as he said later. And people all round the cinema looked at us and ssshhh'd us as if it was totally unreasonable for a four year old boy to cry about something so fantastic being broken. I comforted him by saying that I suspected that it was going to be very important and useful at some later stage, which was a lucky, ( but "film-educated" ) guess! ;)

Finding Neverland (1st time)
Titanic (1st time)
Gladiator (5th time)
The Green Mile (5th time)
Land Before Time (every time when I was little broke my heart)

And a couple of others too, but feeling usually goes quite fast. Marley & Me was sad but I didn't dwell on it like I do in some really good ones. Have realised only genuine films where you love the characters make me cry (step forward Gladiator, Green Mile)

Kissmyarrrtichoke, your comment made me remember another one:

"The Fly" by Cronenberg with Jeff Goldblum, when he is putting his tenth teaspoonful of sugar in his coffee at the cafe and ranting on to Davis about the power he thinks he has gained as a result of going through the teleporter ... and I cried for the ruin and delusions of someone I cared about.

I've never actually cried during a movie, but the closest I've ever come was in Hotel Rwanda, during the scene with the nuns and priests trying to find a place of refuge for the orphans.

I almost cried at the end of Peter Jackson's King Kong. We have every reason to fear Kong, and yet every reason to care about him.

Moral of the story: DO NOT take giant gorillas from their habitat and place them in a major city. Things will literally go apeshit.

I used to watch "land before time" over and over when I was younger. Guilty pleasure :lol: Never broke my heart though. :D

Up got me misty eyed. Mostly over how the beginning of the story was. Not because the guy's wife died, but how they had dreams and in the end, she died having never really lived them.

I don't get a lot out of physically doing something v.s. using my mental eye ; Living my dreams is a messy and strenuous business, I find. When my body won't support what my obsession focuses me do, I consciously sit down and write about it, as it is much easier on my aging frame. Death is not the only end to unrealized dreams, sometimes the body won't allow it.

The Secret Life of Bees. I've never cried so much in a movie theatre before and with sniffling and constant wiping of eyes it was pretty embarrassing. The character who ended up drowning herself I strongly identified with and thought the character must be autistic along with her extreme hypersensitivity, and the little girl character that Dakota played as well. Together it was almost too much to bear. No one else in the theatre seemed to be affected. I managed to get through the movie but felt like a regular dumb-dumb.

I don't remember crying, but I felt REALLY REALLY sad during the movie.

Bridge to Terabithia, when the little girl dies, O-M-G. I felt bad for the little boy because he was looked down upon, super quiet, but incredibly smart. :)

But the little girl in the movie just helped make the whole movie come alive for some reason.
