The movie Mighty Jo Young (about the gorilla) At the beginning where the hunter come and their keys are jingling and they shoot the baby gorilla's mum makes me cry so much.
The lion King. Where Simba's dad dies trying to save him. Oh god I cant handle much when it comes to children being in horrible situations or animals being hurt etc in movies. Gets me everytime

My contributions though...
The Notebook... when they're old, mostly, and they're in Ally's room... and then all of a sudden she forgets him and calls for the nurse, and he's so upset. I feel so sad for him. Also when they die. Probably mostly of hte movies really though... I think my brain is used to going, "Oh, so it's the Notebook... might as well just start tearing up now..." lol.
Edward Scissorhands - When the ice dance happens... so his ice sculpture creates little ice flecks and Winona just dances under it in a white dress while pretty music plays. Also at the end. I love Tim Burton movies... he knows how to use visual and sound rather than plot alone.
Pleasantville - there's a piece of music in it, called "The Mural," that just sets off the tears. I find that movie visually appealing as well (visual or movies with a great soundtrack tend to set me off more than a decent plot will).
Love Actually - when he holds up the sign telling her he'll love her forever... BUT the biggest part that sets me off about that, aside from the fact it's just sweet and nice, is that he leaves it there. He doesn't try and have her cheat with him or anything... and that just makes it that much more attractive and sweet.
The Pianist - Jeez, that movie just makes me wail. I think the part I cried most at was when he gets given jam and bread. Mostly because he is so overwhelmed with it... I just imagine how sh*t life would have to be to be so happy about jam and bread... and that's just depressing. The whole movie is sad though, even moreso considering it's true.
Romeo + Juliet - Tears start when Kissing You is playing and they've just kinda spotted each other, and he says, "Did my heart love till now? Forswear it sight, for I never saw true beauty till this night." I dunno why, but I think it's the combo of him narrowing in his view on her, the way the song changes at that moment, and the fact that he's so lovesick for her. Also when Mercutio is stabbed (A plague on both your houses!)... and the end, of course. Then Baz didn't make matters any better when he asked Radiohead to write a song for the credits and they came up with Exit Music for a Film... which just sounds dreadfully depressing and encourages the tears to continue flowing...

When I first saw Love Actually, the bit in the church when the choir starts singing All You Need is Love - that got me a few times!

Went to see We bought a Zoo last week - blubbed through the scene where the dad and son are both saying "help me". Also when the dad starts working through seeing pics of his wife (no more to be said here - spoiler alert)
I think family scenes get me the most - most movies where there's a death.
ETA: Definitely I am Sam
Also the notebook - anyone who's worked in aged care and talked to people who have partners with alzheimers - just thinking about being with the love of your life for 50 years or whatever and then them not remembering.
Recently - Up - the scenes where Mr Fredrickson is growing up and gets married meets his love of his wife and they discover they can't have children - the way that was done still gets to me. It explains a lot as to why some people seem so bitter.

Marley and Me - where the dog dies
Any movie, where the animal dies
I refuse to go watch War Horse on this principle, as being a Spielberg movie, I assume the horse eventually dies
Human deaths in movies get me too, but there's something about the death of an animal. maybe it's the fact that humans know about death and can somewhat prepare themselves, and take comfort from various beliefs or thoughts, but animals I always imagine being terrified and feeling alone.
Oh god, I'm starting now just thinking of it
