For me it's always the Twilight Saga. Then full on snot filled tissues when Edward's piece of music (Bella's Theme?) that he wrote for Bella.

I read the books before watching the films, and they too made me weep.

I know... I'm a sentimental nitwit.

Philidelphia. Every single time without fail.

Shawshank Redemption. Trouble is, I've seen it so many times that I start crying early in anticipation of the weepy bits, so if I ever watch it with someone who's never seen it they might think I'm a bit weird.

Also, not sure if it would have the same effect now, but Titanic made me do loud embarrassing gaspy sobs in the cinema. In the Ladies afterwards there were loads of women all in a right state, so it wasn't just me!

The Railway Children at the "Daddy, my daddy" moment.
And I cried at The Snowman the other day, when the singing starts.

Greyfriars Bobby. The dog doesn't die and I don't even have a dog!

Beaches gets me every time

IsabelleSE19 Tue 20-Dec-16 17:29:29

Ooh, forgot Philomena. Furious rage crying in that one. Was explaining the story to my brother the other day and couldn't actually get the words out because I was crying too much remembering it. fblush

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Tue 20-Dec-16 17:30:04

Oh I cry at beaches too.

Brassed Off. Proper snotty sobbing tears every time.

Not a film, but an episode of Grand Designs made me cry from start to finish once. A young couple, husbands lifelong dream to build a house for his family, had just been diagnosed with cancer when Kevin McLoud went to visit them initially, the husband died a few weeks later, he was only in his early thirties. That started me off crying. If that wasn't sad enough his wife then went on to build the house in his honour and all these wonderful people rallied around her and helped her get it built. By the end I was an absolute wreck.

The Railway Children at the "Daddy, my daddy" moment.

Yes, the bastards.

Truly Madly Deeply, when George the ratcatcher realises she's talking to her dead partner and says '"And death shall have no dominion." We know that, don't we, me and you?'

Steel Magnolias
Marley and Me

All the cliches really.

The green mile

A little princess (blush)
Lovely bones

Juno, I start crying about 10 mins into the film because I know the bit I usually cry at is coming up.

The green mile.

The kite runner (I also cry when I'm reading the book)

Fred Clause (I was on my period don't judge me)

Harry brown, when he has to play chess on his own after his mate is killed.



First Gump...

I asked DH if there were any more and he suggested I just post a link to every film that's ever been made... dickhead.

Railway Children
Toy Story 3 (at the end when grown up Andy gives the toys to the little girl)

gluteustothemaximus Tue 20-Dec-16 17:56:31

Titanic - the end
Schindlers List - when he realises he could have saved more
Patch Adams - reading the poem he never finished at her grave
The Green Mile

more embarrassingly, childrens films.

Up - when she miscarries
Tangled - when flynn dies
Dumbo - when mum rocks dumbo in cage
Brave - when merida thinks the magic hasn't worked and her mum will stay a bear
Lion king - when he looks at the stars and shouts 'you said you'd be there for me!'

There's more no doubt. I cry at anything sad!

InCaseWeNeverMeetAgain Tue 20-Dec-16 17:56:34

The notebook

Pollyanna blush

Madam x (Lana Turner).

I'm not really a crier at films usually, but some things just get me.

I can't possibly watch Dumbo again now I'm a mother... <wibble>

Titanic made me sob in the cinema, along with all the other teenagers (and others!) there.

gluteustothemaximus Tue 20-Dec-16 17:57:30

Oh yes! Forrest Gump and Gladiator sad

Cagliostro Tue 20-Dec-16 17:57:34

A beautiful mind
Was listening to the song at the end today and nearly cried just from that!

InCaseWeNeverMeetAgain Tue 20-Dec-16 17:59:27

Oh gawd, Carousel, 'you'll never walk alone'. - took me by surprise the first time I saw it sad
