Weepy films

As a compliment to my "Weepy songs" thread, let's list films here that get you teary-eyed every single time you watch them. 'Iris' was mentioned, we can go on from there. Another one for me is 'Khaled'.

Old Yeller - I think I was six when I saw this - bawled my eyes out.

We haven't had one of these for awhile.

The newest "weeper" and with a wry sense of humor is "Secondhand Lion."

I thought someone would've mentioned "Terms of Endearment" by now.

Midnight Cowboy, damn it. A brutal movie. Sling Blade comes to mind, too.

"My Dog Skip" is destined to become a classic tear jerker and it's honestly directed and acted.

Yep, on Terms of Endearment.
Antwone Fisher. (Just TRY to get out of that one with dry eyes.)
Brian's Song.
I guess some people would say Love Story, but blah.

White Oleander--not one heavily dramatic scene (well OK one), but the child's life just broke my heart.

In The Godfather, during the father/daughter dance at the wedding, Connie, overcome with emotion, flings her arms around her fathers' neck and ever since my father passed away three years ago, this scene just chokes me up.

Many, many more weepy ones. I'll be back... Crying or Very sad

While the musical numbers threw me off a bit, I still got a bit of a sniffle at the end of 8 Women.

'Liam' also made me a bit sad, I think because at the end, this kid's pathetic life just went on....no resolution or sense of hope.

Some films not considered real weepers are the most poignantly sad and can use up a box of kleenex in one scene. "Gunga Din" for instance.

Scarface, when Tony Montana finally falls at the end.

And Happy Gilmore, where Happy wins his grandmother's house back.

agree on happy gilmore.

disagree on scarface. the only sad thing about that movie is having taken the time out of life to watch it. (except for the murder in the shower at the beginning. that's a good bit.)

The last movie to get to me was Martin Landau's dying scene in "The Majestic."

While I truly enjoyed Dogma, I didn't get weepy, but I loaned the film to my brother, and apparently he got weepy at the end....

Patiodog, you really didn't like that movie? I was obviously joking about having a sad part...but that movie is great.

Old Yeller is a real weeper...I don't like to even watch it. My favorite is Bridges of Madison County

Two movies which come right to mind - IRIS, Moulin Rouge, Lion King (when Simba's father died), and Terminator 3 (when I realized what a waste of money it was Wink )

Gee, I am such a softie !
