Just that! Any scene in a film that even the thought of can send a wave of emotions over you?

For me, toy story 2, Jessies song, "when she loved you" 😭

I cry everytime. It makes me think of my little girl (age 2) she needs me now and I'll wipe away her tears and make her giggle, but one day I'll not be her whole world like I am now 🌍

The scene in East Of Eden, at the top of the carousel, when the unloved boy (James Dean ) is kissed by the girl he has always loved.

The scene in terms of endearment where Shirley MacLaine hits her grandson by speaking ill of his dying mother and then pulls him in for a hug
. That whole movie really

In My Girl when he dies and hasn't got his glasses. My heart can't take it.

This gets me every time.

Also, Sally Field's monologue in Steel Magnolias. This has got worse as I have got older and had DC myself, and knowing people who have died leaving young DC.

Same here.

Also, in la vita e bella when the little boy thinks he won a tank.

YippeeKayakOtherBuckets · 28/09/2020 12:34

The bit in About Time when the dad says ‘why else would I retire at 50 to play table tennis with my son’ and you realise he’s known forever that he was going to die of cancer (and when) and that’s why he created this perfect family life near the beach.

In fact pretty much that whole film.

chocchipbrioche · 28/09/2020 12:34

Spoiler alert.
The last part of The Green Mile where they're leading John Coffey to his death knowing he's innocent. All the prison officers are crying and then this giant of a man says
'Don't put the hood on me I'm scared of the dark'

MadameButterface · 28/09/2020 12:38

Yondu’s funeral in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

“Mr Stark i don’t feel so good” in Infinity War

For some reason the bit in Wonder Woman when she storms across no man’s land and twats the shit out of a machine gun with her massive shield had me sobbing my eyes out as well

LajesticVantrashell · 28/09/2020 12:38

Robin Williams telling Matt Damon "it's not your fault". Gets me every single time.

MadameButterface · 28/09/2020 12:40


The scene in Tangled when they send up lanterns on the birthday of the ‘lost princess’ - the King’s face crumples in grief. I know it’s an animation but I can’t bear it - I’m tearing up just thinking about it!

Same same same - then the end when they finally get her back, alllll of the tears
suchasoftersin · 28/09/2020 12:40

The ending of Coco, where hector finally gets to cross the bridge to the land of living surrounded by his family! That film turns me to a blubbering mess everytime. It also did the same to my ex-army stepdad.

Bytheloch · 28/09/2020 12:43

That switch to the beach scene in About Time and why they’re on the beach. It stays with you for hours and days😭 after.

ItsAlwaysSunnyOnMN · 28/09/2020 12:43


I was just about to say the same. It’s so fantastically acted the little boy is brilliant. The film is very emotional but that scene comes to mind as it’s so raw

GreeboIsMySpiritAnimal · 28/09/2020 12:53

Slipping Through My Fingers song in Mamma Mia. My mum raised me by herself and I've never known who my dad is. We're very close. We watched the film for the first time during my hen do, and we just sobbed in each other's arms all through it.

It still gets me every time.

WellTidy · 28/09/2020 12:58

The bit in Love Actually where Emma Thompson is in her bedroom when she has realises that the Christmas jewellery is not for her and that her husband is having an affair. It’s the bit when she straightens the bedlinen that gets me.
