Watched "Gilbert Grape" tonight and it made me cry [SHOCK] Silly sod that I am.Though not a major fan of Leonardo Di Caprio I thought his portrayal of a child with Learning disabilities was excellent in this.Of course the marvellous Johnny Depp is delicious in most things.Anyhow,it got me thinking,what are your top movies to have a good old blub to.

I'll add

E.T.(I wept buckets throughout)
Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistlestop Cafe(When the main characters older brother dies,and her best friend dies)
Shawshank Redemption (When he plays the operatic bit across the prison speaker system)

There are loads more,I'm sure..

Your turn

life is beautiful - so funny then so very sad, watched it with my (male rugby player)flatmate years ago, he locked himself in the bathroom so i wouldnt see how much he was crying at the end.

Films I always cry at include ET (yes, even now) and The Colour Purple. They're kind of nice, safe weepies iyswim. Then there's stuff like Lilya 4-Ever, which made me weep with despair the only time I could ever bear to watch it.

I know there's a secret wuss.
