Movie Meme Day 06 - Movie that makes you cry every time

There are some movies that are so sad that you just can't help but cry - Jack letting go of the raft, Old Yeller takes one between the eyes, etc.  However, the movies that make me cry faster and more often are the inspiring ones, often sports stories.  This is unfortunate because I am currently an official for high school swimming and I can feel myself tearing up when the underdog nearly wins.  So the movie that makes me cry every single time is Rudy.  At this point I don't think I need to describe it, but the moment when Jon Favreau says "He's so little" when Rudy runs onto the field kills me every time.  Guaranteed tears, sue me.

Here's the scene:

Charles S. Dutton's monologue in this one is worth the price of admission alone.

Mike, I agree. Combined with the final moments of the game, it's a tear jerker.

The DVD has an interview with the guy the movie is based on.

He talks about the final scene at around the 4:00 minute mark.
