    Fascinating.

    The killing of King Kong, Orca, Jane Goodall's monkeys, the melting of Frosty, a robot kid, and ET.

    Remind me not to step on Sponge Bob or you might kill yourself.

    But hey, I know how animal films can get to ya - I cried for Seabiscuit.

    a few from my list:

    The English Patient
    Spartacus
    Schindler's List
    Life is Beautiful
    Donnie Bosco (Pacino's having to do himself in really got to me)
    A Time To Kill
    Wuthering Heights
    ChinaTown

    Biggest tearjerker ever - To Kill A Mockingbird

    In all seriousness - The Field of dreams where Costner has a catch with his dad broke me. I grew up as a kid always having a catch with my dad in the backyard. He'd always ask me "want to have a catch"? I treasured those moments, and miss him to this day after he passed away.

    Solace? To this day my son frequently gets me and says "want to have a catch". I get a lot of joy out of our catches. The field of dreams sequence of having a catch with your Dad one last time is well, a tear jerker to me.

    I've said enough!

    All good movies and a some of them were tear jerkers for me too.

    I would like to add Ladder 49. The ending just got to me, espcelly thinking about all the countless firefighters and their families that went throught the same thing. True heros.

    fittingly on Fathers day I will be at Fenway with my sons taking in a Sox game. Baseball here is america's sport on the generation passdown. My now 11 year old is heavy into All Star baseball and travel season. I put a chair down and watch him play, its like baseball was played 100 years ago.... Sitting in Fenway on a Sunday afternoon sometimes you feel that too....

    The end of Braveheart ALWAYS gets me. The scene where he's about to die and he sees her walking through the crowd. Man... I have goosebumps right now just thinking about it.

    The end of Dead Poets Society always used to get to me too, when they stand up on their desks. But I haven't seen that movie in years.

    A recent movie - The Notebook. As chick flicks go, that one WAS pretty good.
