What's the last movie that made you cry or tear up?

    This is an offshoot of Killick's "little girl" thread...

    Which movies have made you cry or teared up?

    The "It's not your fault" scene in Good Will Hunting made me tear up. That was probably the last one for me.

    Terms of Endearment and Ordinary People both destroy me. Granted, I haven't seen either in more than a decade. The last scene in "Field of Dreams" got to me as well...

    "Pride of the Yankees" is about to get to me in about ... 10 minutes. It's about to end on TCM.

    Flightplan. About 10 minutes into it, after realizing that was $30 in tickets/food I would never get back.

    The last movie? Hotel Rwanda. The first? ET. I was 2, dammit!

    I sobbed at E.T. I think I was 7 at the time...

    I take that back. The Green Mile gets me every time, and I just watched it again two weeks ago.

    I don't know about the last one but Casablanca is #1 even after having seen the damn thing about 20 times.

    Close second is Sophie's Choice.

    And Moonstruck, which is one of my all time favs in the schmaltz department.

    Reign Over Me. Courtroom scene, among others.

    Forgot about ET. That was a real tear jerker.

    Jesus, Good Doc was 2, Mizzou was 7.

    I was 33.

    The very end of Saving Private Ryan, several times during Forrest Gump, the end of 50 First Dates and the end of Never Been Kissed.

    the end of SPR was not near as tear-jerky as the scene where the army guys show up at Ryan's mom's house.

    Oh, Christ. "Tell me I'm a good man" gets me every damned time. But I'm pretty much a wimp when it comes to most flicks. I mean, I get a little misty at the end of "Major League" -- "The Indians win the pennant! The Indians win the pennant! Oh my God! The Indians win the pennant!" -- so I'm not a tough audience.
    My all-time de-hydrator, though, is "My Life" with Michael Keaton as a man dying of cancer, reuniting with his estranged family.
