The Top Ten

1
Titanic
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!

3Bridge 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.

4The Notebook
I cried so hard to this movie! :'( never seen a movie so sad! The end of the movie made me cry like a little baby! :'( and I couldn't stop crying until 10 minutes after the movie had ended!
This makes me really cry :_( :'(( I really really love this move, ill be forever watching this movie until I die then share this to my love
Great tearjerker movie with a fantastic story that is a true story which makes this movies sad but happy. You will feel lots of emotions watching this movie. One of the best movies I have ever seen in my lifetime and I'm 33yrs old.

5E.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

E. T is a well made movie, that srings tears. I loved the little alien and when he died I did cry :'(. You should really give it a shot, But
BE PREPARED FOR TEARS!

6Old Yeller
Watching this and reading the book makes me break out in tears loves and idont do that very often

7Marley & 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.
Great movie, TERRIBLE ending
When I watched this the 1st (and last) time, I expected a heart-warming movie about a family dog who always gets in trouble, not some heart-BREAKING movie about a family dog who gets in trouble, AND DIES!
I saw a commercial for "Marley & Me: The Puppy Years" and said "OH NO, I am NOT falling for that again"
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!

8Brian's Song

The best film of tom hanks

10Schindler'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.
Cried like... Oh my god.Never forget that moment.

The Contenders

11The Passion of The Christ
never ever cried so hard in my life!

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

13A Beautiful Mind

14The 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!

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.

15Armageddon
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.
Lets be honest, we all know how Passion of the Christ is going to end
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...

Never thought I'd cry in an Adam Sandler movie, but it was so sad, the bit at the hospital it heart wrenching.

21A Walk to Remember

Why did she have to die?! I cried like a baby.

LadyLioness

I just finished watching it, never cried so much in my life. Such and emotional movie, one of my favorites now. :')

Never cried more in my whole life of a movie! This one of the best cry movies ever I just simply loved it!


22My 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

This movie should be in the top 5. I am a male and cried many times through this movie. Cancer is the worst and so many people can relate. It deserves a higher ranking.


23The Road
I watched after I heard that The Last Of Us was based off of it. Seriously never expected to be tearing up as much as I did during the movie. Makes you appreciate what you have now a whole lot more. Going to read the book now!

24Hachi: A Dog's Tale
This movie is easily number 1 here. I saw a lot of movies from the top ten, they can't even reach the cries of hachi
If you are a dog lover... You'll surely cry in this..
I can't stop crying... Loved it

25Where the Red Fern Grows
no matter how many times I watch this, it always gets me

26The 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!

27I am Sam

28The Color Purple

29Toy Story 3
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.

30Grave of the Fireflies
I've teared up in movies before, but this is the only that made me cry. I bawled the first time. A truly moving and profound film, not just sappy sentimentality.
WHY THE HECK IS THIS SO LOW! This is way sadder then Titanic and basicly a bunch others in the top ten! Only 0.2? Come on!
Basically the saddest film ever made. It will rip your heart out with a spoon; slowly and painfully.

crazyeyes56


32Sling Blade

33The Pursuit of Happyness
40! What is this movie doing at #40 on this list!
I love this movie and although it has a happy ending still it can make anyone
Cry. The scene where will smith and his son spend night in public restroom and also the end scene are really emotional... Vote for this movie guys!
Will Smith and his son Jaden are INCREDIBLE.
Forrest Gump is nice too.

34Savior

35Steel Magnolias
I lose it every time when the women support Sally Fields and she just can't help but let her emotions out. So raw and powerful

36Dancer In The Dark

Extremely tragic, it wrecks you emotionally. You think you can get through it, but it is very difficult to watch and emotionally overwhelming. It will stick in your head for days afterwards, a no comedy fix will be able to help.


37Edward Scissorhands

38The Phantom of the Opera
I admit, I cried and I don't cry over anything. I friggin' love this movie, this is definitely my favorite, and I just love it. If you have never watched it, you must go watch it!
I love this movie so much. Every time I watch it I cry. And I don't normally cry over movies. I highly recommend it! There is also really good singing in it too.
This movie has made me tear up at the end. Very rarely do I ever tear up during movies but this one got to me.. Very good acting and singing! I highly recommend it!

39Boyz 'N the Hood
When Ricky dies it is so tragic, He would've moved on to University and made something for himself, but the Stupid Ghetto didn't make that possible

roblist

I read the book and was not bothered/upset but when I recently watch the movie I cried all the way through it.
