That same scene in Private Ryan makes me cry, but different reasons than yours (I think). Having visited Arlington National Cemetery, I can say that there is no movie in existence that can reflect the overwhelming feeling of sadness and pride that you experience when you look out over the rolling green hills and see the thousands upon thousands of white crosses. It can (and did for me) take my breath away and brought me down to my knees.<br><br>Also, the movie Rudy. It's a true story about a kid who wanted so badly to play football for Notre Dame, even though he was way to small to play for a big college like that. What he went through to get on that team was truly inspirational - and he was actually the last Fighting Irish football player to ever be carried off the field on his teammates shoulders (I suspect it will never happen again either).<br><br> What?<br>Visit Me!

Ok, but don't laugh. Field of Dreams. When Costner calls the young ball player dad and doesn't quite know what to say, but just asks him if he wants to "have a catch". I guess it just makes me think how much I love the game and how much it means to a son for a dad to play catch with him. His dad had died long ago, and the thing he missed most was playing catch with him. And he gets to do it... <br>Well...my wife just laughs at me when I watch that part...but it gets me every time.<br>My Girl. Really bad movie, but when she is told that her friend has died...it just chokes me up... <br>Titanic, and Jerry Maguire also...<br>Ok...enuf already! (um...that was for me)<br><br><br>
I do not watch moves that I know or heard of to be sad.<br>If I start watching a movie and find it is too sad, I turn it off.<br>On the other hand, happy movies that make me cry are different. Rudy was one of those movies.<br><br><br>My Stuff
Good pick. Excellent movie, with an excellent soundtrack. I have the DVD but never watched it yet. Maybe I will when I go home tonight.<br><br>Rudy is also another good pick.<br><br>The Iron Giant is a good one too - I've known a few people to well up at a specific scene - right when he says "Superman!" (I believe RubenC worked on that film)<br><br><br>
