Top Ten Saddest Movies


The Contenders: Page 15XW

281The Christmas Shoes

What in the world is this at #236? This movie is unbearably sad. Me, my sister, and my mom watched this a while ago and after the first watch, we were so sad and angry that we actually gave away our DVD. I didn't cry but my mom and sister did and my sister hates this movie with a passion. I have seen sad movies even movies on this list but none of them compare to this piece of devastating garbage. Saddest movie ever!

Why is this at #210? This is the most saddest movie I have ever seen. This film is so sad, my sister hates this movie. I didn't cry in this film and I usually don't cry in movies but this was so sad. I would not recommend this movie to anyone unless you want to cry like a baby.

We watched this as a family... All of us were convulsing with sadness. This movie is horrifically sad. I can't even listen to the song anymore... Not joking. Sad Sad Super sad. I hate it.

This is a true story about richie valens who is killed in a plane crash with to other famous rockers. It is truly a sad movie I cried so much! February 3rd 1959 the day the music died!

284One Day

This is the literally one of the saddest movies of all time. The end is so unexpected and tear jerking.

I swear one moment in this, when Dexter sobs in Sylvie's arm, I couldn't stop crying. And usually after I watch such emotional scenes and cry, when I go back and watch them again, they don't make me cry again, a little teary eyed but I don't start bawling again like the first time but no matter how many times I saw this scene, I couldn't stop bursting out in tears.

Loved this movie and it deserves to be so much higher.

It was So great that even a stone heart man like me was crying. I really loved this move and I suggest you to watch it!

WHY IS THIS DOWN AT 147?! Hate it when Frank cries D':

Best movie... In my life..

286The Diary of Anne Frank

We watched it in school and half the class where crying at the end... I hope you can watch it. So sad needs to be watched!

Oh my gosh I watched this in History Class we also watched The boy with striped pajamas (My history teacher loves to make us cry)
Everyone got tissues and cried when she died is was so sad same thing for The Boy With Striped Pajamas - 2storm

There can't be 261 movies sadder than this, there just can't...

She died when she was 16 or 15 years how is that not sad

287The Cure

I don't think it's the saddest, but definitely top 10! And it certainly needs to be on the list SOMEWHERE! It is a terribly moving and sad movie. Very touching. I bawled like a little school girl. - davidthenurse

Finally I found it! Can;t believe it's number 213. I think it's definitely one of the top 10 saddest, certainly higher than 213! A dying kid?!?! The part with he shoe? Come on! - davidthenurse

I only recently watched this movie, I had never heard of it, but it is by far the saddest film I've ever seen, can't stop thinking about it. Maybe the fact the brilliant little Brad Renfro passed away in real life got to me. He was even better in this than The Client.

I don't cry in movies and I was still crying 1 hour after it was done the ultimate friendship movie

288The Outsiders

I don't see how this movie is so low. This was the first movie to ever make me cry and it definitely deserves a higher spot on this list.

This movie makes me cry every time! It's my favorite movie even though it makes me cry! *SPOILERS* when Johnny says " stay gold Ponyboy " I cry and than right after that Dally commits suicide! This movie should be in the top ten!

289Red Dog

The most tear jerking film I have ever watched, even just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye. A bit like hachie with a sad but happy ending and the loyalty a dog who searched the western side of Australia not knowing that his master was dead and when he finally comes back after years of looking for him just lays down at his graveside and passes away and once more he is reunited with the person he chose to be loyal too :(

Not many people will have seen this movie, it is an Australian movie. But it won 3 awards and is probably the saddest Australia movie ever. Everyone I know that has seen this movie has cried twice. There are two points in the film that anyone that watches it might need some tissues at hand.

We watched this movie as a class and there wasn't one person that wasn't crying.

291Wreck-It Ralph

Although this was a great movie, when King Candy was telling Ralph about what would (not) happen if Vanellope won the race. I ALMOST EMBARRASED MYSELF AT THAT PART. - TheRobertsFamily3

293Fruitvale Station

It's that video at the beginning that makes it so sad, that gunshot is so loud, you can feel the tears welling up just knowing that that was a real father, a real son, and a real boyfriend to people, and he's now gone.

294Inside Out

When I saw it for the first time in theaters I probably cried 45% of the time

How is this so low? It is much sadder than up. - Triceratops

Many parts made me cry. Most especially the part that Bing Bong dies and tells Joy to take Riley to the moon for him T_T. And also the part when Joy looks back at the memories in the dump and then cries T_T. The ending, when Joy and Sadness returns, and Sadness turns all the happy core memories into sad ones, and then when Riley is crying to her parents. The saddest animated movie for me

298Soul Surfer

Bethany's story is very sad. Her life was almost perfect, then comes a huge impact on her life after that shark attack. Then, she begins to question if that was God's plan for her. Her struggles with having only one arm made me weep. She was not able to do the things she was doing before. But in the end, she never lets her weaknesses affect her life. She still did the things she did before

299The Conjuring

One of the best scary movies I've seen so far
