    Although I can't specifically remember many films that have made me cry, I do remember crying during "My Girl" when I was a kid. What are some films that have had you in tears?

    Use spoilers if you're going to give away plot elements as I'll probably watch most of these.

    Nothing in recent memory but the latest Star Trek got me pretty close since it was just so awesome.

    Maybe Gran Tarino too.

    EDIT: Didn't make me cry but the ending to Drive was pretty sad. Although if you read what the director said about the ending then you'll feel a lot better.

    Many animal movies when I was a kid... I don't remember the names of any, but in the same vein as "marley and me"...

    Also there's one which... weirdly enough brings tears to my eyes all the time.
    LOTR: Return of the king :O

    Another movie: What Dreams May Come! It's great!

    TBH that's kinda like not knowing that Aerith gets the shank from Sephiroth in FFVII. Not everyone has played the game but everyone knows the plot twist, just like how Bruce Willis was dead the whole time in Sixth Sense.

    Okay...so now I've had two movies and a game ruined for me...

    Next you're probably going to tell me that Keyser Soze was right in front of him the whole time... or that there was no Tyler Durden...

    I cried my eyes out when i watched "Marley & Me". If you've seen it and been unmoved you're a heartless monster!

    My girlfriend is a massive fan of that film. I did the same and made a joke hat a pivotal time. I had a bruise on my arm for about a week for that.
