    I know what you mean about Little House on the Prairie- we recently got the DVD's out of the library and watched them with our kids who had never seen them - the story when Mary went blind was so sad..........

    Yes. Try to see it. Fantastic acting by the children and a wonderful sentiment.

    @Natalie1974 Just read the review on Amazon about "The Notebook" and thought this sounds like my kind of film, I might have to buy it but before I do I'll check on TV. Well lo and behold it's on tele tonight at 23.00 on Channel 410 SkyDramaRom. How amazing is that. Lol

    Schindlers List, War Horse, an old Disney film The Incredible Journey. Rocky Horror Picture show makes me cry with laughter - does that count?

    Green Mile (tried to immunise myself against it by watching it several times. Didn't work. Now I avoid it)

    Color Purple. I just wish they spelled the title properly ;)

    The Last Samurai. The plot annoyed me. The lead annoyed me. Yet still I blubbed hysterically. It was so bad my face was swollen 24 hrs later and I had to pretend I had hay fever at work the next day. Still don't understand what the trigger was, but I will never put myself through that again!

    Oh, and Free Willy. I've only seen the last 3 mins, but that was enough.

    Can't watch horse races either. Ordinary televised races like Ascot and the Grand National. Just seeing the horses pelting round the track and I'm seeping and simpering. The same for those vet programs. The ones where a presenter watches a rescued dog get re homed, or a kitten get a claw clipped.

    Get the tissues ready...it's a lovely film and quite cleverly done...I don't have sky but I do have it on DVD and the bonus of having the house to myself tonight...so I might indulge myself and pop it on

    Another one to look out for is 'The Impossible' I watched this yesterday and cried like a baby the whole way through...a very powerful film.

    I came out of "Last Year at Marienbad" in tears, but that was mostly because I'd wasted a fiver to watch Possibly The Most Boring Film Ever Made :)

    As far as the vet programmes go, ever thought you might have an aversion to Rolf Harris??

    Breakfast at Tiffany's at the end where it's pouring with rain and Audrey Hepburn is looking for the cat who is soaking wet.

    Beaches film always gets my tears flowing .
    Wind beneath my wings song guarantees the tears too .

    War Horse and Schindlers List films made me weepy .
    As they were real life related films they spiritually moved me too .
    Found them both very humbling .

    Oliver Twist too as a young girl used to get me wailing .

    It's got to be Spartacus when Kirk Douglas is semiconscious on his cross and his wife comes out of the gates of Rome and holds up his baby which he has never seen. Then she leaves, looking back and praying that he will die quickly so that his suffering will end.
    When I saw that on its original release a girl in front of us was in hysterics, crying her eyes out and unable to get up to leave.

    The Colour Purple is a film that always does it for me.
