The stabbing scene at the end of Saving Private Ryan. The helplessness, the German soldier talking quietly and shushing his victim. Hard to watch.

As for a movie scene that made me cringe out of its sheer stupidity and awkwardness, think of the bad boy Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3. Who the hell thought this was a way to show he had been corrupted by an evil entity?

Nothing in particular comes to mind, but I get cringey in any scene where I know a character is walking into an embarrassment before it happens. I generally get uncomfortable and pace around. My wife thinks it is hilarious. I'm otherwise a regular, adult male with no issues.

/wait, watched Hateship Loveship the other night. Main character thinks she's been romantically messaging a guy, it's all been a hoax, she travels a few hundred miles to meet him. Obviously, he's oblivious. I was wrecked for her during the buildup.

Watching Sleepaway Camp (1983) during Halloween, just for  random retro scary.
The busloads of little kids and Jr High kids running from the bus to get to their cabins, etc, they're all excited to be there...
The camp kitchen staff is standing outside watching. One of the staff is really into the kids, comments about fresh meat, "where I come from we call them baldies! Makes your mouth water, don't it."
Another cook (Robert Earl Jones) laughs, and says, "Artie, they're too young to even know what's on your mind"
creeperstaff guy responds "Ben good buddy, there ain't no such thing as being too young. you're just too old"

Yeah that was farked up.

A scene featuring Jennifer Connolly and a double dong really should be a lot easier to pleasure oneself to than it actually turned out.

I still managed, but with less gusto than should have been the case.

Back in the 90s I worked with a guy who was a collector of VHS tapes - Apocalypse Pooh, the exploding whale, that kind of thing. As a matter of fact he was the first person to put Winnebago Man on the internet. Anyway, he had movie nights where we'd go watch his collection. (I think I ran off a copy of the siskel and ebert outtakes, which I got from a guy who was in tv production in Chicago - that's how it was then. Youtube was a guy with two VCRs and an unhealthy obsession.)

Anyway one night was a Chris Elliot double feature - his Letterman behind-the-scenes special, and then Cabin Boy. I'm sure you're a fine fellow, but there will always need to be the kind of filmmaker who makes something like Cabin Boy. It can't all be Marvel or cloying romcoms, or Jonah fat guy and the dime store James Dean mugging at the camera.

For god's sake, it had David Letterman AND a stop-motion sequence. And Ann Magnuson, pipe-cleaner extraordinaire. 

I guard my VHS copy of Cabin Boy with my life, so don't even think of busting in here to take it.

It wasn't cringe-making, but it was very odd.  It was in an English movie called "This Happy Breed", and the scene took place as a family moved into a new house (in the 1920s, I think, if it matters).  One of them, the mother or aunt IIRC, was busy buttering the cat's feet (on the soles).  No mention of it, but they showed this, didn't refer to it later or anything.  I looked that custom up later, and apparently it was a sort of home remedy to keep the cat from returning to the last house.  The theory was that the butter would annoy the cat, and while it cleaned it off of the tasty butter, the cat would become acclimated to the new place - it sort of made the cat 'stop to think' or something.
Anyway, it was kind of weird.

Scenes where people walk on broken glass aren't good for me.

Didn't Bruce Willis do that in Die Hard?  I think there have been other actors in other movies as well.

I have had little splinters of broken glass embedded in my hands and feet at various times - The last one happened months after the bottle it came from broke. That little sliver of glass was so tiny and embedded so deep in my foot I could barely see it, but I definitely could feel it - only when I walked, of course.

Imagine a floor covered in those things and also larger pieces.
