    Hmm, so many to choose from, as I am quite weepy, as my DH would say.

    Braveheart (when his secret wife is killed)
    Gone with the Wind (when Ashley has to go back to the war)
    Proof of Life (when Russell watches the woman he loves leave with the man he rescued for her, because he loves her)
    Mystic Pizza (when the wife of the professor guy comes home)
    Full Metal Jacket (when Pyle kills the sarge and then himself)

    Can't think of any more right now.

    I just finished Echo Heron's "Intensive Care" and I cried at the end when she came to terms with her mom and her childhood.

    I much prefer to cry over books because then I don't miss anything during my waterworks.

    that movie with robin williams, "what dreams may come," was a total tear jerker. i remember i saw it at a mall's cinema and the movie had ended, but i was walking around the mall still crying. "ghost" is also a movie that gets me crying every time. it comes on tv all the time and every single time it's on, i watch it and cry hysterically.

    alot of those already listed got to me as well as "a time to kill." and i cried at the end of "homeward bound". the cat and the young dog make it home but the old dog is nowhere in site. the boy says "he was just too old". then he comes limping over the hill. gets me every time for some reason.
