Flicks in Pieces Nov 24: Tear Jerkers



Flicks in Pieces is a weekly feature devoted not to entire movies, but to the individual parts of them that we love and loathe.

All right, fess up: At some time or another, a movie has turned you into a blubbering pile of emotional pudding. Maybe it was Old Yeller's fate. Maybe it was an ill-fated romance, or a deathbed scene. Maybe it was something that pushed a very personal button regarding relationships between siblings, or parents and children, or friends.

What movie moments have really gotten the old tear ducts flowing? Are there some that can still pull off the trick for you even after multiple viewings?
