In the movie Deniro's character was sort of a hick from the South, and a target of constant teasing and ridicule from his teammates. (Till they found out he was dying, that is.)
I remember the end of the movie, the team's star pitcher, who had be-friended DeNiro--played by Michael Moriarty--is doing a voice-over narration after the funeral scene.
"From here on in, I rag no one."
That movie affected me so much I cried for a month. (I also took a personal vow to rag no one.)

Very first to make me cry: Old Yeller. Today I can't even look at the DVD cover in the store without getting a lump in my throat.

Old Yeller for me too.....that devastated me! Today I will not knowingly read a book or see a movie where the dog dies.

No exceptions!

I'm gonna have to say "Mask" with Eric Stoltz and Cher. The part where Cher's character goes into her son's room and sees that he's passed away did me in...

This wasn't the first movie that made me cry, but it tore me to pieces!

This was on last weekend. Great movie.
Although in the scene, its like she knew he was gone before even checking. Either way, great performance by Cher.
