Thanks!  But I thought the movie was called, The Sad Adventures Young Peeta and His Father, the Liquid Metal Terminator.  LOL!!!  :D

The Fault in Our Stars.

It's usually movies that don't try to jerk out tears that make me cry. Maybe an idea for another poll (Poll Board's unexpected/unusual crying moments when watching a movie?)

Yeah, lol!  My pick (which shall remain unknown until I post the list) is not quite what you'd expect (not some romantic/tragic thing).  ;)

Not a movie, but it was pretty emotional when Michael left on The Office.  :)

Oh, then I misunderstood your intention. I'll change my vote to Late Spring (1949).

You don't have to change it.  I was only saying that my pick was unconventional, lol, everybody else can pick whatever they like.  :)  Late Spring or Fault?

To me, the word "tear jerker" suggests a movie that is deliberately overly sentimental and that tries to force tears out of its audience at all (manipulative) costs.

But actually you were simply looking for the favorite movie that makes you (or me) cry. So if that is right, my answer is Late Spring.

Ed - oh, of course, the stepdad.

Interestingly, Late Spring moves me most when I think about it, not when I watch it. The saddest thing about the movie is that these characters can't properly express their emotions but that only really hits me afterwards, looking back and realizing the whole movie at once.

But if it has to be an individual moment, it's probably the ending.

Now see what you 2 have done! Watched TS1 and TS2 and figured that TS3 would be just more of the same. Now I gotta watch it! I like a tear or two now and again.
Also get teary eyed when Richard Gere shows up in the Limo at the end of PW to get Julia Roberts!

I sniffled in Christopher Robin in the first parts, when they did his going away party scene from the book and when Christopher grew up and forgot about them, and again later when he yelled at Pooh in the woods.

Oh my gosh! When I was little, someone took me to see 'Bambi' and I was inconsolable. To this day, I'm afraid to see it again, lol.

That's an amazing idea for a poll NarniaisAwesome! I remember when I was in the army we made a discussion about this issue and most of the guys were devastated with the ending of Furious Seven, about the Paul Walker death. Personally I am very sad with the ending of Troy 2004, not only because the character I like dies, but also because I have read the poems and books about this and they all are very touching and well-crafted. Great poll, I hope it will gets live soon!

So sad about Paul Walker.  But we still have Hobbs and Shaw!  I really like that franchise.  :)  People make fun of it sometimes cause of the 'crazy' action, but I think it's really great.

Sure, that's fine!  I like how you've got some unconventional ones; you know, like Terminator.  As other users have pointed out, sometimes it's the non-trying-to-make-you-cry movies that are the most touching.

Also, I think I may add to the list what moment of each film is emotional; that way if there is an unconventional one people will know why we cry.  :)  

Everyone who's suggested, please comment what the crying-ist moment was for you in your picks.  ;)

Easy, THE CHAMP (1979)
I believed it was the saddest movie ever before I read  this
http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/flickgrrl/Scientists-agree-The-Champ-is-the-saddest-movie-of-all-...

I can't post the scene that might spoil the film but here's one 100% spoiler-free and that might give you a foretaste:

I think he just loved and admired his father in an way that can be regarded by our day's standards (the hashtag era), he wasn't the typical precocious or wisecracking boy who can teach a thing or two to his parents, he's a boy so desperate for a role model that he literally sanctified his father and the loss of his mother had a bearing on his "drama queen" behavior. Anyway, I wish Justin Henry's nomination for "K vs. K", hadn't taken Schroder's spot... both kids were deserving.

ElMo! Just seeing the words 'The Champ' makes me want to cry. I saw it when I was only about eight or nine because a friend's sister was watching it on HBO, I think. I cried so hard. I've often wanted to see it again to view it from an adult's perspective, and to see Jon Voight and Faye Dunaway, but I've been afraid that I'll be emotionally  squashed, lol.

I don't know another movie where an actor / actress plays so realistic a character mourning for someone's death. It is still unbelievable for me that movie shot in a single take, while keeping the Laia Costa performance as the apogee... She's simply the best.

My two favorite scenes in the film are also the two that make me misty-eyed or, indeed, even cry. His performance is exquisite and it's his restraint that is most effective, I think: I don't feel like I'm being manipulated in those two scenes, whereas the movie, in a few other places feels too obviously sentimental. Rather, I feel like, in those two scenes, it's, in James Joyce's words, "earned emotion."

I haven't been able to make up my mind and I'm still having a difficult time deciding but I think I'll go ahead and say 'Disobedience.'   I thought about several others, including 'Bambi,' but I haven't seen some of them in such a long time that I wonder how I'd react now. I was inconsolable, as a child, when I saw 'Bambi,' and I think I'd still cry, but I know for certain that I cried, just months ago, when I saw 'Disobedience.' I still feel like I'm forgetting some, too, but that's part of the fun of these kinds of polls. : ) And I feel like I'm betraying 'The Florida Project' because that, too, makes me cry, and it's my favorite, like many of you know, but so much of 'The Florida Project' is so joyous and I figured that I need to be an adult and just make a decision, lol.
