Top Ten Movies that Make You Cry


The Top TenXW


This movie truly is sad and happy in different aspects. The death of SO MANY... the LOSS of a great love (Jack & Rose) And just the sinking of the ship itself. I feel touched, and also empty when I'm through with this movie. It's just the greatest movie ever. And the ENDING will ALWAYS make you cry like a CHILD. Outstanding cast and director. And James Horner is an amazing musician. - HolyDeth

Titanic is saddest movie ever not just because Jack died in Rose's armes cause he wanted her to live, it's saddest cause 1 500 people and children died and most of them didn't even have a chance to save their lifes!

I normally HATE romance movies, and NEVER cry during a movie no matter how sad it is. But when I watched the Titanic for the first time, I couldn't stop crying when the ship began to sink and everything that happened afterward. This movie is now on of my favorite movies ever!

The saddest thing is that Rose killed Jack in a way. If she had just stayed on that boat, Jack would've found the driftwood and assumably found Rose. And besides, doesn't that driftwood look big enough for the both of them? Ever heard of taking turns?

2Bridge to Terabithia

I never really cry in a movie and I have seen many sad ones. But this movie was the first to make me cry when the girl dies. It depressed the hell out of me for two weeks.

It was so depressing. That movie made my heart shrink

When the girl dies my heart turns to ashes like if someone has burned it.

This made me cry my eyes out when the girl died it was the saddest thing ever

3Marley & Me

The ending gets me every time I watch it. Owen Wilson talking to marley saying he's not the worst dog, the wife sitting there crying, and the son watching tapes of the family and marley having fun gets me very teary. But when marley gets the injection and closes his eyes, niagra falls. My dog (also a lab) went the same way.

I don't get it. Why isn't this the first? I have watched titanic, and Bridge To Terabithia a couple of times, but THIS movie right here makes me cry EACH AND EVERY single time, harder than before. This movie made me cry more than both of those above there combined. Shame it isn't number 1, Titanic is cliche in front of this.

(P.S Maybe it's because I own a dog, AND it's a labrador :C)

I only watched it once, but that was enough. Most of the other movies on here I've never even seen, but I'm already positive that this one should have won for saddest. Like, EVER!

This movie will leave you sobbing if you're a lab owner like me. - PianoQueen

7E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial

I cried when E. T died and when he was going back to his home planet. But it was a great movie but it made you cry in some parts and laugh in others. It was one of the best movies I have ever seen

I know I cried in the same exact spot - michaelwalton

This movie is SO overrated.

The only thing sadder than this was the Atari game.

I can't believe this isn't on here... I cried for days during and after this amazing, incredible film. Saddest thing I've ever seen. I love it.

Oh my god, I remember when I just cried my eyes out while watching this movie. It was so sad when Bruce Willis sacrificed himself to save the guy his daughter loved. So sad...

Lets be honest, we all know how Passion of the Christ is going to end

I just love this movie! I watched it over 15 times and every single time it makes me cry...

The Newcomers

?The Graduate

At the nearly end of the movie when Dustin Hoffman runs to the church where his girl that he really loves gonna get married with another guy. The scene where he's banging on a glass wall in the church and screaming her name trying to stop her, makes me cry every time I watch it. This scene is so intense, and the happy ending makes you cry with joy. A classic sixties movie.

The Contenders

11Schindler's List

It's not just one scene, it's the entire film. It's made in such a way that moved me to tears. - logblobo

I believe this can contest Titanic EASILY.
Better music. Better directing. Better acting, even.
And also a sadder true story :( this should be number 1.

How is this just at number 9. It should be number 1. This movie is amazing and extremely sad.

Cried like... Oh my god.Never forget that moment.

12Toy Story 3

I was totally confused, sad, and mad ALL at once! Andy HAD to give his toys away, I was expecting him to give them to his kids! Great movie, sad ending

The only movie that made me cry in my whole life, and I'm rough as chuck norris, man

This movie has a lot of heart. One of the few next to Bridge to Terribithia that made me cry.

The only movie that's ever made me cry. - Hajj

16The Fox and the Hound

More than 20 years since the first time I saw it and I still cannot watch this movie without breaking down in tears... Multiple times.

BEST FILM OF ALL TIME I CRIED SO HARD, so sad, never be a better film


How is it that disney always know how to make us cry? Like in the fox and the hound when the old lady leaves the fox behind. Gets me every time and I'm 20.

Bambi's mother was shot and killed by a hunter! Then Bambi is yelling/crying for his dead mother! Total tear jerker!

I cries when the mom died

18The Shawshank Redemption

This movie is just simply AMAZING.

This movie made me cry tears of sadness, but also tears of joy!

It made me realized that, "Everything happens for a reason. "

I would recommend everyone to see this movie!

~ It'll blow your mind ~

Quite possibly the best film of all-time. If you haven't seen it, you must. You'll be happy, after viewing this extremely well-made motion picture. - moviefan1990s

19My Sister's Keeper

Absolutely touching story line. Really humbling movie that makes you think about the ones that you love in life and the lengths you would go for their sake. - aue3611

20The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

it is so sad I cried so much just to imagine what they go through and what the father has done. Also what the Nazi do to the Jews it makes me so angry and sad. SUCH A GOOD MOVIE

Me and my friends watched, only to end up crying on the kitchen floor. One of us didn't even finish watching it since she couldn't stand the idea alone. I just hated the image that movie carves into your head when they show you that door, that door!

I had to read the book first and I was crying the entire time. it was so sad when the two boys die... and I'm only 12!

The saddest movie of all times
