Oh dear, this just reminded me of a movie that absolutely destroyed me... Life is Beautiful. I cried so hard I thought I would throw up.

That movie had a huge impact on me. I don't think I ever looked at life the same way again.

I agree with lots of them that have been posted.

Another one that gets me everytime is A Walk to Remember. Such a great movie!

Prepare for it. I rented it years ago one Sunday afternoon and watched it alone. I don't think I spoke again at all that day. My mind (and my heart) were preoccupied with trying to "digest" it.

I forgot about Marley & Me. I gave my dog a big hug after watching it.

That's how I felt after seeing Saving Private Ryan.

Life is Beautiful is definitely a tough one.

Oh my!! I remember my brother found it on tv once and I got sucked into watching it with him. My mom walked in to the room an hour later and was shocked to find us both with a box of tissues between us bawling!! She didn't say a word and just walked out. It is a really powerful movie.

Another movie I absolutely love and have has to replace my DVD copy twice now because I watch so often, is Return to Me. I love this movie!

Life is Beautiful is the only other movie besides The Champ (from my earlier post) that I remember I was still bawling about as I got in the car and rode away from the theater . The people I'd watched both of those with were also crying. I've cried during lots of other movies, but not where I was still crying by the time I got to the car. I could probably have still been crying after Toy Story 3, but I composed myself.

Life is Beautiful starts out so light-hearted, but don't be fooled. The tone changes and it turns out just so sad and tragic. I guess I should watch it again because I really liked it, but I never have. I really hate crying from movies. I haven't seen a lot of the ones mentioned on here (e.g. Marley & Me, The Notebook, Saving Private Ryan) because I've heard about them being tearjerkers, and I hate crying so much. I don't like to be sad, and I always have a horrendous headache from crying. The headache ruins the rest of the day/evening if I'm out with people.

I agree with a lot of the ones mentioned. When I saw Stepmom, I cried so much my sweater was soaked! The scene in Steel Magnolias when Sally Field lost it gets me every time.

Saving Private Ryan shell-shocked me. It took me days to react and I will never watch it again because I will never forget those scenes. My great uncle was a Ranger during WWII, I can't believe what he endured.

I read the Notebook, couldn't face the movie. My uncle, mentioned above, lost his wife (my great aunt who was like a grandmother) to Alzheimers.

I refuse to see Marley and Me. There's only so much I can take!

I agree with a lot of the movies mentioned. I felt the same way after Life is Beautiful - I was speechless for a long time, and could barely breathe I was so overcome with emotion. Good movie!

(OT but actually, my definition of a really great movie is one that makes me laugh and cry. It happened with Ted last week, lol.)

I'll add:

My #1 favorite movie A League of Their Own
Turner and Hooch
Chances Are
Pride and Prejudice
War Horse (had a box of tissues and was stifling a wail in the theater )
Dreamgirls (For some reason I bawled during the whole movie when I saw it on the big screen. Just felt so bad for Effie, and found the performances and music utterly moving!)

For your listening enjoyment, from Dreamgirls: (OK, sniffling a little putting these clips together! )

I Am Changing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYuFvu2gdFU

Patience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar_UjSjW5kw

(Obviously sound and music are a big part of the movie for me! Have a lot of soundtracks and like watching a movie with surround sound, even at home.)

I remember watching that, too. Wasn't it the "first" miniseries on television?
