Well, Lets not forget about some Christmas movies.

How about; Its a Wonderful Life.

I remember as a little kid, I would get teared up watching parts of Rudolph the Red Nosed reindeer.

Anything with animals in and I'm a gibbering wreck - be it fiction, cartoon or documentary

I seem to also have a problem with inanimate objects. I cried at Batteries Not Included. I howled at the end of the first Star Trek movie -you know where they discover this huge object approaching Earth and they are trying to figure out how to destroy it and it turns out it's the original Voyager satellite which had been launched hundreds of years earlier with the mission statement to gather all the information it could and then return home with it and that's all it was doing, just following orders and doing what was asked and now the people who sent it are long gone and those that were there wanted to destroy it.....and it was only doing its JOB.............!!!!!!

Don't even get me started on Silent Running with Bruce Dern and those little robots Huey Duey and Louie. That has me in huge air-gulping hiccupping sobs.....

I agree with caninemom3, The Passion of Christ was the saddest movie I've ever seen.

A movie that was totally overlooked by Hollywood and yet one of the best films ever made.

It was sad and joyful.

I get teary eyed very easily watching movies. I cry for joy and I cry for sadness.

There is one movie that I cried and while I was crying I suddenly started laughing with tears still streaming down my face is, Steel Magnolias. For those who have seen it will know what I am talking about. It's the only movie I cried for sadness and laughed at the same time. You just have to see it because something silly happens during the sadness.
