I haven't seen the movie, but I remember the book from when I was a kid, and being blindsided by it. Assuming they didn't mess with it too much, and the previews did make it look like they amped up the fantasy bits, I'm sure it's more than a little sad.

Same here. That book was severely depressing.

Rahda Mitchell's fate in Pitch Black gets to me. Makes me sad and angry at the same time.

I thought "A Perfect World" was really sad.

And yeah, I'll admit it, I'm with Chapman on "Ol' Yeller".

Dancer in the Dark and Fox and the Hound are the only two I can think of that gets me everytime.

I haven't seen Field of Dreams since I was a kid, but I'm pretty sure I didn't cry then, when it might have been excusable, because I was a kid and all. :roll:

:P

That's a good movie, but they telegraph a particular tragic fate so far in advance that it lost a little something for me.

That they do, I get sappy in the Patriot too, and it was pretty obvious what was coming there too.

United 93 was brutal. That got some tears flowing for me.

I have a strange one that makes me cry.

About Schmidt.

And no, it's not because I have to see Kathy Bates shirtless.

Something about that ending just hits me hard.

And I had at least one rolling tear the first time I saw The Green Mile. I think it's watching Barry Pepper cry. I don't know why, but seeing the sniper from Saving Private Ryan breaking down into tears chokes me up.

And speaking of Saving Private Ryan...

Tom Hanks has more weepy films than any other modern actor.

Although, I just don't get people who break down when he loses "Wilson" in Castaway. :roll:

Yeah, but aren't you married?

Any guy in the last couple years who has dated a girl has probably had to watch the Notebook.

It's a prerequisite now. :-D

It simultaneously and graphically conveys a desperate man losing the only thing in the world he cares about (the very thing that sustained his sanity), while also reflecting what a pitiful broken reality it is that the thing he cares so much about is an anthropomorphized rubber ball / silent imaginary friend.

Now, that's sad. :(

Dancer In the Dark is kind of manipulative, though. Yeah, I got choked up, but I give more credit to Bjork than to the Lars Von Trier's constant "I hate America" movies.
