    No matter how many times I've seen it (a lot) The Elephant Man pretty much turns me to mush.

    The Intouchables. Same. Haven't seen the remake but hear its good.

    The end of Shawshank.

    It's all down to the person at the end of the day.
    I will admit I'd been in the middle of watching a few sad films at the time.

    Senna documentary had me in bits. Up and Toy Story 3 are excellent suggestions. Beginning of Up in particular is unusual in that it tends to bounce off the kids and really affect the grown ups.

    The one that didn't affect me at all was Grave of the Fireflies. I know its up there in tearjerker territory.

    Marley and me

    Lassie Come Home, as well as other old Lassie movies.

    My Girl. "He can't see without his glasses"

    And as I've said before Plague Dogs is probably the most depressing film I've seen

    Must admit, this one gets me a bit mushy.

    Anything that has a dog upset or dying in it, I turn into an emotional bawling wreck. So for example Hachi, Marley and Me or A Dogs Life, those sad and protracted scenes where the dog slowly starts to decline in health despite still wanting to please their owner. Then you have the beginning of the end, where they cant stand up- the phone calls back to the kids who have fled the nest but have to rush back to say goodbye. The close up of his eyes as the vet says "its for the best"- his last wagging tail. Im just gone, cant take it. Even thought its as formulaic as you can get, it hits me in the guts every time.

    Funnily enough, I can watch people getting tortured, shot, cut up and blown away no bother but I cant watch an animal suffer!

    Anything with a dog dying or becoming distressed - can't even look at the DVD cover of Marley and Me.

    Especially after my own two dogs passed away very recently (at a ripe old age)...at this point I'd probably fall apart watching John Wick.

    #1 dust in the eye ending.

    The ending of Shawshank always has me moist, too. It was on TV the other night and had to be watched. Flawless.
