But then, when Shaun's stepdad died, it was instantly comedic again, as he turns into a zombie and turns off the radio. Ah, good times, good times.
Oh man, I loved that bit! That was great! "Mum, there is nothing left of the man you loved in that car!" Zombie stepdad turns off obnoxious music on the radio and looks happy for a second Ahhhh, killer.

It was a great movie, I love Robin Williams. I even bought it… but it's never been opened. x.x
I did the same thing with Dead Poet's Society years and years ago. I'd rented the movie and liked it, got it for my birthday, never so much as opened it since. ^^

Various scenes from "Watership Down" and "Plague Dogs" (Both by Richard Adams) still make me cry, even now.
_I saw Watership Down when I was faaaaaaar too young for it, I think. I really don't remember much about it except that it scarred me and I don't ever want to see it again. I'm sure it's a great movie and I'd be able to handle it much better now, but it's one of those knee-jerk psychological things where I just can't watch it.
And since a few people have mentioned some anime, I'll list a couple that make me cry…
I swear this show's made me cry more often than any other show I've ever watched. I still cry at Bellemere's death, especially the chaotic aftermath when Nami's being carried off by Arlong and Nojiko's curled up in a ball sobbing because she can't save her. Yow. And yeah, most of Chopper's flashback gets me, too, particularly Hiruluk's speech right before his death– it really drove home what a cool character he was and how much you didn't want him to die, and then he did. The Ave Maria playing in the background didn't help, either. ^_~
Utena (massive spoilers if you haven't seen the end)
I know, I know, I list this show for everything, but I can't help it, I love it. It's also made me cry a few times, most notably during Nanami's flashback to childhood when she taped her brother's kitten in a box and shoved it into a canal because she was jealous of it. That was just utterly horrible. We never saw the kitten in the box or heard it, but we knew it was in there and not seeing or hearing it made us fill in the blanks in our own heads, which I think is worse.
Then at the end, after everything's happened, Utena's sacrificed herself to try and save Anthy and the people at the school don't even remember anymore, we see Akio in his office, speaking to Anthy. Starting the duels over again, planning everything all over again, hoping that this time they'll finally find a duellist who can give them what they need. Anthy tells him she feels sorry for him, playing Prince in his frozen fairy tale world and that she's leaving. She puts her glasses on the table and walks out of his office. Then we see her at the gates to the school, her hair down, glasses gone, wearing her own clothing, with a genuine expression on her face. She picks up her suitcase and steps over the threshhold and you realize just how long it's been since she must have set foot outside those grounds, and the series ends. I bawl like a friggin' baby whenever I watch that. Well, I bawl whenever I watch the last two episodes, but that's the part that always gets me, that bit at the end. Not because it's sad, really, but because it's moving. It's very difficult to explain if you haven't seen it. Don't look at me like that.
