Call me wimpy, but I cry alot at movies and tv shows.  I usually cry when good things happen not bad things.  For example, I cried at a really good Syesha performance on Idol two weeks ago.

As far as movies are concerned, I can't recall the last movie I cried at.

I agree on all three...I will add a few:

A Walk To Remember (this one literally made me bawl out loud at a theater, while watching it with Beth. I tried to contain my tears the whole time..until I couldn't take it any longer..and just blurted out my sobs  :D).

nearly all of Tyler Perry movies. He has such a way with getting to the core issue of things in his movies..and some of them have really touched me personally.

I cry at a lot of films too but at home, I try not to cry in public.
Most of those mentioned got me, I also cried at the end of Memphis Belle. Sophie's Choice made me cry. Most recently Attonement had me welling up too.

I remember years ago when i was still living at home, Mum and i were at home watching some old movie with Lana Turner in it, could have been Madam X. Anyways we are both in floods and my Dad came home from work popped his head round the door, took one look and fled bless him.  ;D

I cry at everything.  I cried when the dudes found out where their car was.  Anytime the team wins, the audience applauds for the kid that played the piano, when someone sees someone die, when the cavalry comes over the moutaintop.

Even when the half-man, half-fly takes the rifle and points it at its own mutant head and is asked to be killed.

I'm kinda ridiculous.  I used to cry alot more when I was younger in the theaters.  Now I can't hear movies in the theater well enough to get the emotional impact.  At home, I can use closed captioning and turn the volume up high and it's easier.

E. T.
Bambi

I cried at weird things too.

In Rocky (whatever number) when the trainer died and when the black boxer friend died...

In Two if by sea (because the couple arguing reminded me of my first marriage)  ;D

There are lots of others, just can't remember them.

Took the kids to a movie, but I can not remember what we saw, and Megan looks over at me and says "Are you crying?". I said, "No, I'm just tearing up a bit" (but I was crying  ;D).  I couldn't see her but I could feel her rollings her eyes at me!  :D
