    Heh. Sorry, didn't mean to spoil the sentiment. Princesses are about the only thing my daughter studies right now, and none of those movies make me misty.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    For better or worse, I don't tear up. It's to the point where I always have to give the eulogy when a family member dies.

    But the avy movie, A Dozen More Turns, makes me fight the tears back every time. Offhand, I don't think there's been a Hollywood movie as sad as that was to me, but I'll have to think about it a bit more.

    Similarly, the end part of Blow where he thinks he's talking and walking with his daughter.

    Glory's ending was painfully damp. Ghandi - the assassination pretty much left me incoherent and unable to drive home.

    sad and wonderful all rolled together.

    then again i get that way after 2 or 3 beers....more and i'm asleep.
    Agree with that. Got a little dusty in the room then.

    Though the ending of Band of Brothers is still my #1. I balled like a baby.

    I mean how can you not?

    I know I'm going to get crushed for this but the Last Samurai gets me every time.

    I'll also add The Pursuit of Happiness and American History X

    I'm not going to even get into Up

    American History X also wins for featuring the most cringe-inducing / make you want to turn away moment in the history of film. Mouth on the curb, oh man.

    Last Samurai for sure; and Up too - heck, there were jerked tears in the first 5 minutes.

    Video game, not a movie, but I think that makes it more noteworthy that it choked me up a little bit, no game has ever come close to that before.

    Medal of Honor. At the end.
