    I get a little teary eyed during some movies. Titanic always gets me though. I also have a memory of being a child and holding back tears watching Free Willy LOL. I hid out in the bathroom at my grandparents house till the sad part was over!

    Very, very rarely will a movie make me cry. I don’t think it’s increased or decreased over time.

    I almost never cry at movies. I specifically remember homeward bound being the only movie I ever teared up during until I was probably 25ish. But lastgrew years i’ve definitely increased just being emotional in general.

    Eh. Generally I dislike chick-flicks because they are overly emotional and dramatic, predictable, and cheesy to the point that I laugh. I don’t give myself the opportunity to see them to know whether I’d cry or not. I guess I am not qualified to answer.

    I see comedies more than anything else because I’d rather be laughing, personally.

    I cry generally only for deaths of characters I like or incredibly sweet moments that catch me by surprise.

    Yep, since I had my daughter, I cry at everything about a child hurting or being hurt!

    I never used to cry during ANY movie.

    As of late, I cry during almost any emotional movie. Not chick flicks; I hate those, for the most part. But during movies like Skin, which I watched recently, I began sobbing and Fiance was trying to comfort me. Only certain types of movies get to me, and it’s often the ones about segregation (of any type). It’s horrible.

    Almost never.

    I cried at the end of Harry Potter, but that was a huge part of my life for a decade. I don’t remember the last movie I cried over before that one. It’s rare.

    I’ve never cried over a movie, and I doubt that will change in the future, but who knows?

    I’ve always been a movie crier.

    When I was very little I cried at the end of King Kong.  (the Jessica Lange remake)  I cried during the Adventurers (cartoon)

    I was an absolute wreck (during and) after Saving Private Ryan.  I remember going to the ladies room and just sitting there crying, along with every other woman there.   No one talked.  Just cried.  

    Don’t get me started on The Notebook.  That wasn’t even fair.

    I cry rarely at movies and that hasn’t changed.

    I often cry at movies, but I think it’s decreased over time.  I think I used to like crying at movies when I was younger but now, as an adult, it just happens if it happens.
