A film that gets me every time is "Steel Magnolias" - I *love* that movie! For any of you that haven't seen it, it's from 1989 and stars Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, and Shirley MacLaine.

So what movies move you to tears every time you see them?

I must say this is embarrassing, but I cry in almost every movie I see. I don't like Sci-Fi, Action, that kind of movies, so I don't usually watch them... but those movies I get to watch, even if they are supposed to be comedies, they always have something that touches my heart and at least one tear will fall from my eyes Usually that's what happens, but there were times in which I'd cry like a baby, can't remember with wich movies that happened though The last movie I saw was "Memento", and I cried with that too

Steel magnolias makes me cry too, plus it hits kinda close to home because i have diabetes.

Untamed heart always makes me cry, and what dreams may come. Most of the corny ones do though.

Only ever seen one film that has made me cry - and that's Leon. I know it's not supposed to be a sad film, but the end of the film (for those who haven't seen it, Leon is an assasin who takes in a girl whose family were killed by cops, and has to sacrifice his life to save her) is so moving that I can't help myself. But it is a fantastic film

American Beauty. It's such a passionate movie, inspires me to live life to its fullest and teaches me to admire the things around me.

Ooh - I just thought of two other movies that make me cry: yet another Julia Roberts film, Stepmom, and Mr. Holland's Opus starring Richard Dreyfuss.

It's funny.. a lot of people think that this movie is negative. I see it the way you do. It also makes me cry. That plastic bag scene always gets me.

Another movie I ALWAYS cry when I watch is "My Girl" ... & of course the one and only (hah) "Titanic"

lilnerd - I totally forgot about "My Girl"! I'm so glad you mentioned it...now I'm going to have to go out and buy it somewhere

Has anyone seen "My Girl 2"? I haven't, but I want to know if it's as good as the first one.

I've seen MG2... certainly doesn't compare to the first, but it's cute. Very cute. Worth a rental, although I do find it on cable TV once in a while.

I don't cry when I watch movies usally, but if I do thats how you know its a good movie.

I watched "The Green Mile" last night and I was crying like a baby through the whole movie. It was just so sad. That was an awsome movie. The best written one I have ever seen.

That is the only movie I have ever seen that has made me cry...and i was bawling. Good movie...suggegest it highly to anyone.

"Far And Away" starring Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman (during happier times - obviously)...

It doesn't make me cry, but I think it's a good movie

Oh, and about "The Green Mile" - I attempted to watch it one time, but me and my guy got a little preoccupied *wink* I suppose I'll get around to watching it one of these days.

The only movie that can consistantly make me cry is 'Garfield's 9 Lives' which is the best movie/cartoon ever, and also very sad.

When I cry in a movie it is a big deal because I have always been kind of afraid when it happens, I don't like to cry (I see most of my movies in the theatre because my father and I go to a lot of movies together, so I don't like to cry in the theatre...heh.) so I remember it when it happens.

Some that were already mentioned that I concur on:
*Far and Away
*What Dreams May Come (all throughout...that movie is a total roller-coaster and I could NEVER see it alone)
*Mr. Holland's Opus (ESPECIALLY when "Mr. Holland" is singing about his son...)
*My Girl (Ahh, flashbacks)
*Stepmom

Some new ones for the list:

*Philadelphia (hits VERY close to home...)
*The Family Man (a recent one with Nicholas Cage I believe...just came out on video)
*Field of Dreams (That was the first time I ever cried in a theatre...)
*While You Were Sleeping (that was more of an "awww" cry than a really serious gut-wrenching cry, though)
*Shawshank Redemption (GREAT movie.)
*The Hurricane

Edited because I knew I'd forgotten one and I remembered it right after I posted...

I cry in a lot of movies the first time I see them, but after that... It's not big deal. I would have to say that I ALWAYS cry in "My Girl" and "The Horse Whisperer."

I've never seen "Steel Magnolias." I think I might have to watch that one with a box of tissues.

Quite embarrassing, but I cry over every movie!!!!! It seems like I've cried over every movie made just about. My mom and sister and fiance make fun of me for crying over every movie I watch. I even cry on certain talk shows! But the movie that I always cry over is my favorite movie ever, "Save The Last Dance". Best movie guys!Go rent it!

Sincerely,
Amanda

very few movies make me cry, but it's pretty much always when someone nice in the movie dies.

Like Armageddon, American Beauty, Perfect Storm.

Those are the only ones I can remember for the moment, but I guess they're the only ones that bring tears to me.

I can honestly say I have never cried at a movie. A lot of movies have made me whimpery, but none have made me cry. My sister says I have no heart. It's probably just that I have a really short attention span, and movies that are meant to be sad always bore me. When I saw Titanic in the theatre, I could not sit still by the end of the first hour, and spent the rest of the time cracking jokes to keep myself entertained. By the time the movie was over, all chances of crying were shot. I'm positive if that were happening in real life and I didn't have to sit through all the lovey-dovey crud, I would have cried. Call me heartless if you will, but I say I have a wandering mind. P.S. I've seen American Beauty, and although that movie moved me greatly, I didn't cry. My dad was bawling, but I just sat in silence, trying to take in the wonder I had just seen. Thought I might add that.

------------------
I panic and hold on tighter, but that makes it worse.
How am I supposed to take it when she says, "This is something I'm going through; it's got nothing to do with you"?

Now that I think of it, Armageddon made me teary-eyed at least...I don't think I was at the point of crying, but I was close to it. That was a great movie...I didn't particularly care for the part when they were up in space b/c it was a tad bit confusing for me, but the part where Liv Tyler's character was touching the TV screen when her father was talking was soooo moving.

The Crow especially the version with the last ever interview with brandon lee at the start, when he is talking about what would happen if he dies the next day - almost like he knew and how you have to live life for athe moment. and the dead poet's society - truly a genius creation!

I saw this mentioned a couple of times so i thought i'd put it in too. Dancer in the dark, i just watched it this weekend, and i loved it so much, but i had the worst headache because i cried for the last 45 minutes, from when she lost her job to the end. It was soooo good though.

Oh, I'm so glad someone mentioned 'Dead Poet's Society' - I looooooove that movie! I remember watching it in the 8th grade (man, that was quite a few years ago already...wow) and it was so sad when the one kid (I don't remember his name) committed suicide...That reminds me - I have GOT to go rent that some time
