I'm in that same camp!

Movies I thought were very sad:
Edward Scissorhands
Mrs. Doubtfire
Punchline
Big

I have another to add to that list. I saw Brian's Song once and can never, ever watch that again!

Old Yeller is a heart breaking movie!

I watched a TV movie that tore me up, "Taking Chance" a true story. Lt. Col. Michael Strobl played by Kevin Bacon accompanies the body of 19-year-old Marine Chance Phelps back to his hometown of Dubois, Wyoming.

Caught this on a late late movie years ago. This is one of the more amusing scenes but it highlights the tragic differences in culture. Sad on so many levels, and one of the few movies to ever make me cry.
Hawaii (1966)
"Drama set during 1820-41, a period when the influx of Protestant missionaries from New England resulted in the religious commercial exploitation of the Hawaiin islands."

After starting this thread, I went and watched some clips of Old Yeller on Youtube. Here I am now a 49 year old man and still choking up watching them.

I guess the boy never leaves the man.

I like homespun movies with quirky characters. That gets me to watch the occasional chick flick. I remember sobbing to Beaches and Steel Magnolias. The recent Hallmark Hall of Fame film called The Lost Valentine turned me into a major weeper. (Wait for the four second countdown and click on Continue as a Free User.)

Beaches was definitely a chick flick. I enjoyed it very much.

I had no choice but to watch Steel Magnolias. It's a southern, homey movie with Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts! Seriously, with a flavor combination like that, I didn't have a choice!

There are some incredibly sad moments in movies, but overall, very few movies are actually "SAD".

Sad - When Moofasa was killed in Lion King
Sad - When the German stabbed the American guy slowly in the heart in Saving Private Ryan
Sad - When Bambi's mother got shot.
Sad - When Forest's mother died in Forest Gump

And of course the saddest of them all:

I think you should sit through the entirety of Lilya 4ever and see if you can still say that.
