      Yeah, Forrest Gump is a good example. Usually when Forrest meets little Forrest the first time, and when Jenny dies.

        Rocky III-when Mickey dies. From Rocky lying about winning the fight w/Clubber to Rocky sobbing, to the scene where Rocky full of self-loathing hurls his motorcycle helmet at his statue.
        Cocoon-When Oklahoma's own Wilford Brimley is fishing w/his grandson and tells him that where he's going they won't have fishing or baseball or hot dogs "and I'm gonna miss em." I'm gulping as I type this.
        Transformers The Movie-Optimus dying after his epic battle w/Megatron. Four year old me was traumatized that day in the theater.
        Terms of Endearment-The scene in the hospital when Shirley MacLaine, after realizing that Debra Winger will die soon goes off on the nurse.
        The Shawshank Redemption- "I hope the Pacific is as blue as it is in my dreams. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand." Nuff said.

              Agree on Wrath of Khan and the mirror of that in the Star Trek Into Darkness. I'm a softy.

                The end of Green Street Hooligans... When Pete says, "We didn't kill your son, Tommy, you did. He was your son, mate, You should've protected him!" Tommy Hatcher then proceeds to beat Pete to death, as Pete has now saved his sister-in-law & nephew... It's very sad, Pete Dunham was a great character..

                                The whole 2nd half of Million Dollar Baby was tough. And a few other Eastwood movies, Mystic River, Gran Torino also had me choking up a little, especially Mystic River.

                                And maybe even a few of the Toy Stories had some scenes that got me a little misty eyed... What, do you guys have a problem with that?!?

                                Also, do any of you remember a movie from the 80's titled, "Bill", staring Mickey Rooney? I remember we watched it in school and it had almost the entire class in tears. If I was crying right in the middle of class in high school then i can promise you it was sad.

                                  Armageddon - Bruce Willis dies

                                  Mask - Cher's character finds her son Rocky has died in his sleep. After that movie, Sam Elliot's name officially changed to "Gar".

                                        Good call on Mask. When Rocky won't wake up and she says "now you're free baby" and then starts to put the pins back on the map where he was planning his bike tour. Aww shit son.

                                            Dang, some of y'all are blubber butts. The only time I recall getting weepy was at the end of Cool Runnings when the Jamaican bobsled team carries their sled across the finish line. And Bambi. And when Dobby died in Deathly Hallows. And last MASH. Maybe a few more...

                                                That last scene in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles when Steve Martin finds out that John Candy is homeless. It's even sadder now that John Candy is dead. Miss that guy.

Even his own teammates don't remember things happening the way Rudy portrayed it in the movie.
