For some reason the cave scene on Empire Strikes Back gets to me. Particularily the lines "What's in there" "Only what you bring with you"

This one is more like tears of joy. I really like that one part in Final Fantasy X-2, when Yuna was chasing the floating moogle doll that may or may not have been imaginary around the town, and she was reliving her cherished memories of the previous game. :)

The Princess Bride is so good, it's inconceivable.

The "Circle of Life" scene in the Broadway version of the Lion King brought me to tears of AWE. The entire time, I was just thinking "Oh my goodness, this is beautiful, they actually made this work, they made it happen."

"Cool it, hotshot."

The ending to Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island doesn't exactly make me cry, but it comes quite close. The music for that part in particular somehow sounds happy and sad at the same time even though it's only really meant to be a happy scene - like it's happy that you finally beat the game, but sad that you probably won't play it again for a long time (unless you try to get 100 points on every level afterwards, of course).

Ooooh boy the last 10 minutes or so of Spirited Away had me bawling like a baby in the theater. And then I continued to cry for the next half hour while we were at lunch. My tears dripped into my chicken basket. Needless to say, I'm sure my parents and sister, who didn't have the same reaction, were very embarrassed. The movie was just so beautiful though!!!

It's debatable whether or not it's sad, but when Llewyn sings Fare Thee Well at the end of Inside Llewyn Davis is pretty damn emotional.

The ending musical number of Que Sera Sera from My Neighbors the Yamadas gets me.

Aang and Katara's kiss at the end of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Heck, any of the cute friendship moments between the kids in that show is worth crying happy tears over.

Also, the ending of "Find Her, Keep Her" from The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Best episode from the show. Best character arc for Rabbit and Kessie (and possibly everyone).

The ending of Kung Fu Panda 2.

The moment where Mr. Bean replaces the defaced Whistler's Mother painting with a poster in Bean, all set to Howard Goodall's trimphant Bean Theme (Mad Pianos). It teaches us that no matter how clumsy you are, if you have the inner strength to make amends, that's good enough.

Also, Naruto's and Hinata's Big Damn Kiss in The Last: Naruto the Movie. Throughout the Naruto series, the former never recognized the latter's passionate feelings about him until this film. This was payoff incarnate.

For some reason, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty always makes me a little misty eyed. I dunno why, maybe it's just because, as a kid with Asperger's, I always associated with Walter. I cannot believe that the movie got such bad reviews at the time of release. It's far from a cinematic masterpiece on par with, I dunno, The End of Evangelion, but it's still a really fun and charming watch.

The scene in the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings movies where Sam says "I can't carry it for you, but I can carry YOU!" That scene is just pure 200-proof badass.
