15. It's that song, man.
I Will Wait For You.

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're back beside me, till I'm holding you
Till I hear you sigh here in my arms

Anywhere you wander, anywhere you go
Every day remember how I love you so
In your heart believe what in my heart I know
That forevermore I'll wait for you

The clock will tick away the hours one by one
Then the time will come when all the waiting's done
The time when you return and find me here and run
Straight to my waiting arms

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're here beside me, till I'm touching you
And forevermore sharing your love

(For a thousand summers, man. That's my girl right there.)

9. Men Don't Leave...
...starring Jessica Lange. For some reason, that movie left me cold the first time I saw it but I caught it again on cable a couple years later and it had me bawling.

But I was really drunk and I'm not a man. Does that count?

21. "Feed the Kitty"...
Edited on Wed Jul-30-08 04:56 PM by Hell Hath No Fury
starring Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot.

In the forward to "Chuck Amok", Spielberg noted that "Feed the Kitty" had a theatre full of grown men sniffling in the dark. :D I double dog dare you to watch Marc Anthong put the kitteh-shaped cookie on his back and not fight back the tears! Lord knows when I watch it I am a blubbering mess!

And here it is:

36. Remember the Titans
This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we are still fighting among ourselves today. This green field right here, painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies. Listen to their souls, men. I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family. You listen, and you take a lesson from the dead. If we don't come together right now on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed, just like they were. I don't care if you like each other of not, but you will respect each other. And maybe... I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men.

37. "Something for Joey", "Brian's Song."
"Something for Joey" was a tv movie from 1977 about the football player John Cappelletti and his little brother Joey, who suffers from Leukemia. It is a big time tear-jerker and I dare anyone to watch this movie and not cry.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076738 /

"Brian's Song" is the story of running back Brian Piccolo, and his friendship with Gale Sayers while they played for the Chicago Bears. Brian Piccolo becomes sick with cancer. Watch the version with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams -- not the remake!!
