  • To cry--an old one "Imitation of Life" I just see the opening credits and I am in tears.
    To cry and laugh --"Rent" I am into that movie--dvd--cd
    To laugh--"Fargo"
    To smile--new one "Mama Mia" I was surprised with the songs I knew.

  • Moulin Rouge, Empire of the Sun (kinda long though), Waiting (hysterical).
    Pregnant or not, the song MamaLion82007 ("Angel" - Sarah McLachlan) mentioned gets me every time I watch City of Angels (Meg Ryan, Nicolas Cage).

  • Don't know if anyone said it already, but "P.S. I love you" is a bit of a tearjerker.

  • Steel Magnolias and Joy Luck Club. Both movies are about mothers and daughters and the relationships between women friends. But, I do have to add that these movies are more for the been there/done that crowd than for new moms.
