Im so not a chick flick girl by nature but I love me some Steel Magnolias. Maybe its my southern roots, or maybe its just that good. But Im watching it for the hundreth time and that friggin funeral scene (Damn you Sally Field and your brown football helmet hair) just melts me into a puddle. And I KNOW it’s coming. Which movies always have you reaching for the Kleenex?

The Lion King!
Every time! haha – not exactly a romantic movie, and it’s been a while since I watched it. But it get’s me.

A Walk to Remember. So cliche but the first time I saw it was the day after dramatic high school me had broken up with my first “serious” boyfriend so it is forever tied to horrible ugly crying.
Eta: The 5th Harry Potter movie, because who can not cry when Sirius Black dies???

The Notebook but only because the subject of Alzheimers/Dementia hits close to home. My grandfather suffered it for the last several months of his life and it was difficult for me.

12 Years a Slave and Still Alice.
I’ve actually only seen both of them once, because I know I’ll be a dithering wreck if I sit through them again. I watched both of them on a flight to Thailand and my God, I balled. Two beautiful films.
ETA The Theory of Everything . How did I forget that?! Totes emosh.

Ive never seen the Notebook. I have a personal grudge against that movie 🙂
Girl, yes, the Lion King! I know he’s a cartoon but when Mufasa dies I lose it EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Others for me: ET, Marley & Me, Forrest Gump, Room, My Girl, A Time To Kill, Ghost, Good Will Hunting, Terms of Endearment

It’s funny because Steel Magnolias was the first movie that popped into my head when I read the thread title! For me, it’s when Jackson comes home to find the baby crying hysterically. I think it always gets to me because I have 2 small kids and it makes me think how horrible it would be if something happened to me and they were alone and scared. Also the funeral scene that you mentioned. Ugh, that movie! So funny, but so sad too.
Marley&Me gets me too, but mostly just the miscarriage part.

Turner & Hooch
The Flowers of War
I’m sure there’s more I’m forgetting. Any sad animal movie honestly.
I just recently watched the movie Hope on Netflix and I got to say…never again. I was so distraught especially after reading the full list of what the rapist did to her in real life. There’s just no way that I wouldn’t be going to prison because that man would not be staying alive.
