Same!
I cried at the British Pork advert, and the Race for Life one.
Although funnily enough, the charity heartstring-tugging ones don't get me.

There was noting like Noel's Christmas Presents for a good howl on Christmas morning - he has a similar programme on Sky now, but it's nowhere near as good. Perhaps because it's not on Christmas Day proper - you need a glass of sherry and the smell of turkey cooking to make it authentic.

I used to cry when people won a lot of money on a game show. I was just so damn happy for them.

I cry watching all dog movies. If you don't cry watching "Marley and Me", well you need to check your pulse.

Feelgood movie IMO: Pure Country

I deliberately haven't gone to see Marley & Me, for fear the Department for Suppression of Heartless People will catch up with me. Misbehaving dog movie? Ack, my worst nightmare. I'd sit there lips pursed, arms crossed shaking my head in disapproval. And someone would report me.

I bawled my head off reading the damn book! This book made me, in turns, LOL (I mean haggis) and cry. I'm a sucker for animal movies too.

I remember in HS I had a little black and white television in my room. There was a movie on, it might have been A Girl Named Sooner, and there was a scene where kids were throwing rocks at a bird...something like that. I cried.

Feel good movie: What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Endings full of possiblity but not all spelled out, me like.

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"

"The Lion in Winter"

"Champagne for Caeser"

I've seen it fairly recently. It makes me smile the whole way through.

Grim film. I've never yet watched it all the way through, I always lose the will to live somewhere around when Benny Hill appears.

Clueless & Ghostbusters are on my list.
I don't have to cry at either of those.
Never got into the Gonnies, which everyone else my age seems to hold in extremely high reverence - I just managed to miss it til I was in my 30s.

From Dusk til Dawn would - albeit slightly bizarrely - be on my list too.
It's just good clean fun for all the family. In a blood spattered way.
Oh, Grease - of course. I don't know if it ever made me cry, but it's so familiar now it has no power to move me in that way. I just like the songs still.

Clueless...cute movie. Kill me, I like Legally Blonde, too.

From Dusk til Dawn...some years ago a friend said I had to see this. She brought it over and I'm watching and all of a sudden I'm like "WTF? What just happened?" Loved it.

Grease--hell yeah!

Oh, Pocketful of Miracles. Dave the Dude, Queenie Martin, and Apple Annie. Not to mention Joy Boy and Junior. Great movie. If you like old movies this is a must-see. Ignore the sappy parts with Ann Margret.
