    i love the comments:

    For me, it is Conan the Barbarian. In particular, when the hero's girlfriend makes a deal with her own life to bring him back from the grave, and tells him: "All the gods they cannot sever us - if I were dead and you still fighting for life, I'd come back from the darkness, back from the pit of hell to fight by your side." Gets me *every* time - in fact I'm welling up just recalling it. I've tried to tell my wife that it is the most romantic film ever made. And tried to include that speech in our wedding vows. But she remains unconvinced...

    I am pretty sure allergies and onions should be on that list

    Because those two things are by far the most common events that make me cry

    What a load of wimps. Real men, like myself, only cry at the sight of quiche. Oh, and on hearing O Mio Babbino Caro. Oh, yeah, and at several places when watching Gone With The Wind including every time the theme music starts.

    Yeah

    I guess

    That means being kicked in the nuts can't end up on there either

    And I am pretty sure a lot of happy crying is more like tearing up than anything else

    quiche?

    maybe you call it flan?

    It's like a pastry base with an egg based main part and coated with cheese.

    That scene is intense, but not tear inducing

    I think Monsters Inc. made me cry at the end though

    I can't remember, it's been like six years since I've seen it

    Watching my dad or grandfather cry. Luckily that doesn't happen often, but when it does I'm a mess.

    Where the Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller are the only things that should make a man cry besides a serious kick in the groin.

    I cried like a baby at the end of Bigfoot and the Hendersons.

    Also I get a little choked up during rousing speeches like in LOTR or Braveheart

    I have never cried during a movie or while reading a book

    Shit is sad but at the end of the day I just can't bridge the whole "not real people" thing enough to cry.

    The closest I ever came was tearing up at the end of the autobiography of malcom x, probably due to the whole "actually a real person" thing.

    not denigrating fiction or nothing I just can't cry because of it
