Babe at the end where he says that'll do pig. Always brings a tear to my eye.

/don't laugh

I gotta say Shrek 4 Ever... I can relate to being tired of the routine and in need of a short vacation, but loosing the kids and finding the doll... and realizing they aren't comming back cuz even if the Fiona kissed him, she does not love him cuz she never met him so the kiss doesn't work...

Indeed. What a sad way to start a movie.

Toy Story 3 at the end. So there is still hope for my soul.

Air Bud, solely because my golden retriever had passed a few weeks before viewing the movie.

Seven Pounds almost made me cry, that is a sad, touching movie.

+1 on the beginning of Up. I didn't think CGI could make me cry.

I have to add The Notebook. When we rented it, my grandmother was in a home (parkinson's/dementia) and Grandpa was visiting her every day, usually twice. It was way too much and I cried like a woman the whole time. I refuse to watch it ever ever again.

Notebook and Up. There was another one about a dog, not Old Yeller. It came out a couple of years ago, a dog and a family. They were like "roar, stupid dog!" then they loved the dog, then the dog got sick and died.

Old Yeller tops my list.

Marley and Me also places high because like you, I saw the flick shortly after the best dog I could ever ask for passed away. I kept hearing that described as a "feel good movie." Feel good, my ass. There is nothing good about losing a faithful companion forever.

However, the beginning of Up is a downer, but so is the whole movie.
But you're a robot so it doesn't count...
