Just listening to Abbas *slipping through my fingers'*and can't avoid crying much to the kids amusement.

Also for me nannas speech to Barbara in the *'Royal family'*when she says she just wished to be with her family and not in a home.

Also Daddy my Daddy in the railway children.

Also opening sequence of up

What's your weak point?

Oh yes Up killed me. Who the hell wrote that? Sadists.

WitchWay Sun 15-Jun-14 18:38:35

Everyone cries at "Daddy, my Daddy^ - perfectly normal grin

Always always cry in 'Love actually' when Liam Neeson's character does the speech at his wife's wedding.

I cry even more since his actual wife died. Poor man

I cry at most things.

I am such a bloody softie.

And yet hard as nails.

When Monica and Chandler got engaged in Friends blush.

WallyBantersJunkBox Sun 15-Jun-14 18:42:27

Oh gosh yes "The Queen of Sheba" is almost unbearable to watch. sad

When they organize a brass band for Bren's Christmas Eve birthday on Dinnerladies....

When I hear a Welsh choir singing particular songs from my childhood.

When I drive over the Severn Bridge. blush

Eric Clapton's "tears in heaven"

The opening credits to "terms of endearment"

The Little fact most of Oscar Wilde's fairy tales. But I am an inveterate sobber and will well up at almost anything

MikeLitoris Sun 15-Jun-14 18:44:36

Any group singing or dancing. Even crap films like street dance 3.

The worst films for making me cry are

7 pounds (will Smith)
Schindlers lost. (the red coat in the pile sad)
Up (first ten mins)
Toy story 3 (last ten min)

Hundreds of songs. Of the top of my head is

Million love songs-take that
Just like a pill-pink
Behind the wall-tracey Chapman
Small Bump-ed Sheeran

When I drive over the Severn Bridge

In which direction Wally?? grin

KoalaFace Sun 15-Jun-14 18:45:29

Beaches. Jesus the end of that movie is a killer.

Yeah the beginning of Up is so touching and sad.

The last Harry Potter book. Oh and the first Harry Potter book

The Lion King.

Oh god I could go on forever.

What a marshmallow.

The end of homeward bound/the incredible journey - there was a point I couldn't even describe without my eyes leaking.

WallyBantersJunkBox Sun 15-Jun-14 18:47:29

stephen - both, but for very different reasons... grin

MikeLitoris Sun 15-Jun-14 18:49:52

I tear up coming back over the bridge too. Usually at the toll price though!

ExitPursuedByABear Sun 15-Jun-14 18:49:55

What. The Incredible journey? With the dogs and the Siamese cat?

RhinosAreFatUnicorns Sun 15-Jun-14 18:51:31

Black Beauty theme tune - every time. Even DH humming it can make me start to well up.

Programmes like 'surprise, surprise' when long lost family is reunited.

I have to admit the Severn bridge (and other feats of civil engineering) makes me cry too.

Rule the world by take that

WitchWay Sun 15-Jun-14 18:54:45

Agree children's choirs - carol concerts especially

Pretty much any sad bits in films Lassie

WitchWay Sun 15-Jun-14 18:56:18

"Lost love" type stuff in films or songs gets me - I was inconsolable for a good hour after watching "The Bridges of Madison County" blush

Only1scoop Sun 15-Jun-14 18:57:28

Watership Down....

Can't even watch the film anymore....

Just the music sets me off confused

Only1scoop Sun 15-Jun-14 18:58:54

Strangely enough ....Limahl singing 'Never ending story' makes me instantly wail also....

I'm quite odd
