Oh, the shame of it all.

*You cry because it's sooooo bad?*

I was assuming with the exception of the Pianst, that's what she meant.

Cuz yeah, Vanilla Sky??!!

Well, and Philadelphia too... haven't seen it since it first came out, but I remember some cry-worthy scenes.

These movies make me cry:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Diary of Anne Frank
Gone With the Wind (esp. when Scarlett comes home to see her mother during the war)
Hilary and Jackie
A Charlie Brown Christmas
The Sound of Music
Titanic (just kidding...yak!)

Out of those, I've only seen Love Actually, and unless you were crying about the scene where that lass is with her brother in the mental hospital, which made me well up, I have no respect.

The best bit of that film is when all the little children start saying "We hate you Uncle Jamie!!" If I ever have children, they shall be trained to say that to Mr Perfect Rich Banker Heterosexual Big Brother. (who is called Jamie)

Do you not cry at Watership Down?

And I wish I didn't cry at the Nutty Professor (and to complete the humiliation, yes, I'm talking about the Eddie Murphy version) but I can't help it. It's when he gets back from teh comedy club and eats and cries alone. Even when watching the film in public in front of people I needed to appear unemotional to. It's awfully embarrassing.

Oh no, I lurve Vanilla Sky. I can lust over all manner of film starlets in that movie and sob because everyone somewhere has their Penelope, waiting to be found.... snuffle....

Welcome back to the comments, Lux, I've missed your wit. :D
I've only seen SOM and Titanic from that list, and the crying is a horribly loud public gulping wailing sort of a thing, so I'm going to take your list and avoid everything on it, if you don't mind....

I did actually dither about putting Watership Down on the list, but decided that as it made me weep quietly with fear and terror when teh rabbit in the noose dies with it's teeth and tongue hanging out, it didn't really count. Same with Free Willy. You can hide that sort of teary eyed fit in public, but not the raw snorting gulps that tears of pity induce.

And, no, Love Actually was because it's such a depressing film. I cry during the end credits, and I'm usually crying for Emma Thompson, and the fat Portuguese sister, and the president's ambassador, and everyone in it who got dumped used or abandoned and left in the lurch.
I swear, if I'd watched that bloody film before Christmas it'd have made me top myself - there's barely any happy endings in it at all.
Although I'd have hated Uncle Jamie, too.

Films that make me cry
Jane Eyre (the Orson Welles version)
The Sound of Music (yes yes, I know. You can stop laughing now :p)
Braveheart
Magnolia

Oh yeah, yes to Magnolia, although I don't actually cry at it, but it makes you feel like you should be able to cry, especially when you see the cutaway shot of the picture on teh wall that the girl's annotated with a bit of newspaper text that says 'but it did happen'.
I love love love Jane Eyre, but the book only, I can't bear the idea of it being a film and can't watch it, I'm afraid. Same with Schindler's Ark, Clockwork Orange, oooh, that's another whole list in the making actually, there's loads, and I only have five minutes left of credit at the Internet Palace.

I cry if a cartoon has a sad part in it so I can't pick on you about your choices.

On the post below - garlic in everything? Yuck! That's not a matter of being too old to try new things, it's a matter of having the good taste buds that let you know garlic just doesn't go with everything.

I imagine you guys had wonderful breath after that.

Lassie... man that dog always got me in tears as a child. There was this one where she was trying to rescue this kitten trapped in a cave and water was flooding in. Sunday afternoon 2pm, me (age 10) sis (age 6) and dad had to turn the telly off and promise us an ice-cream coz we were inconsolabe and he thought we were verging on hysterics...

The awful truth is that that occasion was just one in a long line of of weeping noisily in public at the Nutty Professor. It caused most alarm when I did it at work....

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who cried like a baby while watching The Last Samurai.
But then again I cried like a baby while watching a JC Penney commercial the other day, too.
