I saw E.T. when it first came out.  I was 12 or 13.  I didn't cry...I thought it was stupid.  I don't plan to see the re-release.

AI was manipulative crap. It's not so much a 'tear-jerker' as it is a tear-jerker-arounder.'

Ive heard that A Beautiful Mind is a real sad tear jerking film.

The last movie I cried in was Homeward Bound when I was about 9, and the last time I cried at the TV was the last time I watched 'One Fish, Two Fish, Blow Fish, Blue Fish' episode of the Simpsons. It still makes me cry even now. Everything in it is so beautiful except homer listening to the bible tape. Havent seen LotF yet, but I expect to burst into floods during that too. I love happy endings.

[zoidy]Yay! People are agreeing with me!

I didn't cry once during this film. Infact the only thing I really remember was "How the f*ck can this be a PG???????". Far too overrated, not my cup of tea at all. Of course feel free to disagree with me. Plenty of people love it and thats fine by me.

Why are people saying AI was a tear jearker, I thought the ending was well rubbish it went on for to long. If they left it at the fair groung I think that would have worked so much better as an ending. I'm not saying I"m not for sentiment if it is done well and in modration but AI was too overlly sentimental for my likeing.

Luck of the Fryfish people.

Actually if I am ever subjected to watching "Dude, Where's My Car?" I expect to cry with a mix or laughter, hysteria and absoulte boredom. It sounds terrible.

I hate movies about sports that nobody around here knows, like American football (Any given Sunday) or baseball. 

A tennis or cricket movie...Now that would be even worse.

ones about cars are much worse, i.e 'The Fast and the furious' was the worst film i've ever seen in my life, it was just cars, cars and more cars..... and i hate cars   mad

I've seen 'Dude Wheres My Car?' before. Its..erm..different. I thought It was gonna be a proper film but its kind of fantasy as well with no real storyline. Theres are some genuinely funny moments but apart from that its a pretty poor film  hmpf

What striked me about the Fast and the Furious, was that the story is identical to Point Break, where a young FBI agent (Keanu Reeves) infiltrates a group of bank-robbing surfers.  He becomes friends and has to choose between them and his job.  In the end, he lets the guy that he should have arrested, go.

Point Break is a cool film, I certainly can't think of a better example of a film about surfing bank robbers   smile

*SPOILER*
I wept openly in Cast Away when Wilson floated away.  I loved Wilson, because he was such a pessimist (in the movie Tom Hanks keeps telling the volleyball, "yes, it'll work, yes I know what I'm doing, yes, I'll survive", as if the volleyball kept saying "we're gonna die&quot wink.

I'm still surprised no one else has mentioned Schindler's List though.

i have never cried during a movie, but I came close in Armageddon, during the cheesy scene where Bruce Willis' character stays behind to detonate the explosive and has to say goodbye to his daughter.  I have watched the DVD over 50 times and it still chokes me up a little.

Besides that...... i really don't know...

I found Armageddon entirely too cheesy to cry in, but I got kinda choked up in the same scene in Deep Impact, where the crew sacrifices themselves.

I cried once in a movie when I was quite young, and have come close ever since.

I cried in Oliver, when the orphan sang "Where is love." The Shame!!

Ive come close before in The Lion King (that b@stard Scar, making Simba believe he was responsible for his dad's death). Also, Titanic was pretty sad, but not the actual death of Leonardo Di Caprio, but like some bits before it, like when she leaves on the boat and then jumps back on to it, or when you see the mother kiss her kids goodnight.

I don't remember the name of the movie but it was about an old cold war satillite that was armed with nukes, or something and it had armed itself(at timer). and in the end they had to shoot it off to the moon. And one of the astronaughts(sp?) had to pilot it there never to return... at the end it showed a space suit slumped down leaning against a rock watching the earth.. that scene pulled a few heart strings becuase the guy left behind his love  cry

OH! I think it was that 'Space Cowboys' movie..
Too bad that scene was the only good part..   hmpf

Just watched Deep Impact on TV and yes I cried again. The tears started when whats-her-name said "I called him Oren, after you" or something like that.

I watched Deep Impact too last night and I found it very emotionally upsetting but managed not to cry. Just.
