Mine has to be Titanic. The 18 year old who saw it in theaters was all caught up in the whole Jack-and-Rose story but the 31 year old who saw it on TV recently was sadly reminded at the tragic loss of life.

Just off the top of my head- ummm. that 1993 movie with Madonna and Rosy O'Donnel. where the women played baseball.I remember that song at the end(this use to be our playground-madonna) was our class graduation song,so it reminds me of kind of sad times.
Titanic-at the time was very sad. not so much now after all these years.
City of angels- was a very good 1998 movie was sad as well.
I try to steer clear of sad movies.I prefer horror or Christmas!

I remember watching Forrest Gump in the theater while I was pregnant (so I was a little hormonal) but I cried and cried. Not just tears, but actual sniffs and sobs, enough that a couple of people turned around and gave me an odd look. LOL

For me, the saddest movie I EVER watched was The Passion of The Christ. I need at least two boxes of tissues for that one........

I am a very emotional person.. so just about every movie hahahaha..

ok maybe not every movie but here are a couple where I basically bawled my eyes out.

- Titanic
- The Notebook
- A Walk to Remember
- Sisters Keeper (I think.. thats what it's called... one with Cameron Diaz)
- Old Yeller
- My Girl (When the little boy dies.. man.. i bawl!)


There's a couple other, but I don't remember their names
