I don't cry at many movies, but here are the only ones I have:

 

Uncle Tom's Cabin

 

The Lady And The Tramp (always when Lady asks what a baby is, just kills me)

 

Riding In Cars With Boys (not a classic, but I can't watch this movie at all)

 

Lilo & Stitch

 

October Sky (fantastic movie! Anyone who has not seen this one, go and buy the dvd... Fantastic musical soundtrack--I believe it was set in the 50's)

 

Penny Serenade (during Grant's plea to keep his child)

 

I know some of these are odd, but so am I.

SHANE (at the end always tears me up)

 

SHORT CIRCUIT 2 (When it seems Johnny 5 is dead but Benjamin tries one last time with the defribulator and brings him back to life)

 

TENTH AVENUE ANGEL (OMG Margaret O'Brien had me in tears for over half the movie!)

 

ALL MINE TO GIVE (What a tragic way to break up a family. The last couple scenes had me dabbing my eyes out)

 

CARS (When Porsche is telling Speed McQueen about the history of Route 66 and the town of Radiator Springs.)

I don't consider yours odd .everyone has their own unique taste which to me is what makes us all unique in our own way. I love Lady And The Tramp. Riding In Cars With Boys was good but it's one movie that I couldn;t watch twice I thought October Sky was very good and I could watch that one again. If you never seen A time To Kill that is a movie to watch.It has you on the edge of your seat through the whole movie.

Kurosawa's Ikiru has gotten the water-works going for me, from time to time. Also, E.T., no matter how old I get, always manages to jerk out a few tears. Let's see, what else is there...

 

It's A Wonderful Life

The Unholy Three

The Shootist (being that it was Johne Wayne's last movie, and everybody knew it)

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) (Lon Chaney is, truly, the greatest)

Schindler's List (for very different reasons)

 

...I'm sure there are many more, but I just woke up, and my brain isn't working up to snuff right now.

I'm not big on tear jerkers, but a couple that affected me:

 

"The Passion of Joan of Arc." This movie just rips my guts out every time.

 

"Xiu Xiu The Sent Down Girl." A Chinese movie about a young girl who is sent into the wilderness during the Cultural revolution. An amazing, beautiful and heart rending movie.

> Tomorrow is Forever

 

Thanks to TCM, this is now my favorite weepie. Had never seen it before they showed it this year, and was so moved by Orson Welles sensitive portrayal. Prior to that, Wuthering Heights was my favorite - used to cry through the last 10 minutes of the death scene, but after 20+ years of viewing it has lost some of it's affect. Others are:

 

Random Harvest

The Ghost & Mrs. Muir

Brief Encounter

I sob at the end of THE COLOR PURPLE every time. No matter how many times I see it.

 

Also, the rooftop scene in A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN when Francie is crying for her dad - and when she gets the flowers at her graduation. Each time.

Imitation of Life with Susan Kohner and Q & A a very underrated Cop film directed by Sidney Lumet, with Nick Nolte's best performance as a crooked and racist Irish cop, not that those kind of cops exist. The part that always chokes me up is when Jenny Lumet confronts Timothy Hutton on his racism !
