Uh...every movie ever? Here are a few of the more notable films:

Moulin Rouge
Romeo + Juliet
Steel Magnolias
A League of Their Own
The Hours
Rudy
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Finding Neverland

I know there are about a million more. I really do cry quite easily at movies. Hell, I still cry when I watch Order of the Phoenix.

I never cry at movies. There have been a few that made me tear-up, but not out and out crying. Except one. There was a made-for-tv film in the 80s called Who Will Love My Children. An entire box of Kleenex. No exaggeration. Uncontrollable sobbing. I've never seen anything so sad before or since.

Usually, I don't cry much during a movie, but I definitely remembering sobbing at the end of The Notebook. Also, Torch Song Trilogy brought out the waterworks (after the first time I watched it).

I don't enjoy crying, period, but when a film purposely pulls out all the plugs to make you cry, I really hate it. That's what they did in Terms of Endearment.

"Who Will Love My Children" was such a tearjerker! I loved it and remember crying so...and I also remember crying when Barbara Stanwyck accepted her Emmy for "The Thornbirds", having won over Ann Margaret for WWLMC and she was so surprised, and she paused and said "Ann Margaret, you were WONDERFUL."

My favorite tearjerker TV movie was "Love is Never Silent" with Mare Winningham.

The films that make me cry most?
The Color Purple
The Joy Luck Club

Stany was a pretty generous performer, huh? I still tear up when I see the clip of her and Holden at the Oscars when he tells the story about her saving his career and then a few years later when she received her special Oscar and saluted him in her speech. "And so tonight, my Golden Boy, you've got your wish"

I cry at movies constantly, but the first that comes to mind is The Notebook. I recall crying quite excessively at the end of that.

Did you know her well enought to call her Stany, lildogs?

I'll never forget that moment. It was so real and unexpected. I love when acceptance speeches pay tribute to fellow nominees, but that was just so lovely and I remember the look on Ann Margaret's face. Everyone thought Margaret would win, and I remember being mad that Stanwyck won, and then we got that moment.

I can't BELIEVE I forgot La Vita et Bella! I cried so much at that movie that I've never been able to watch it again. I was still on my couch clutching a box of Kleenex a good 15 minutes after I turned off the movie.

Kitzy...La Vita et Bella (or Life is Beautiful for those of you who are confused) is another one that gets me too.

As a general rule, I don't cry. But I have to admit that I did at the end of "Without You" the first time I saw the RENT movie.

I know Enjy! One of my favorite lines from a movie, ever.

If we're going off of foreign tearjerkers, I'd also like to add Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources to the list.
