341They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Jane Fonda and? Sarison, I think. Absolutely great movie, but totally depressing!

342The Thin Red Line

It shows the harsh reality of war and the pain it inflicts on people really sad film ten out of ten - toonsommermartin

343The 5th Quarter

One of the saddest movies ever cried the whole time. It so touching and hart warming it is sad at parts but you need to watch it.

344The Butterfly Effect

The movie is about a man trying to fix everything to make it perfect for his friends by changing the past. Which fails each time and in his last attempt. He goes back in time to where he first met the girl that he loves and tells her that he hates her. So she doesn't live with her father and so she can have a perfect life. Then after he runs into her again during the end of the movie. He doesn't talk to her so he can make sure that everything in her life will be perfect. Then in the alternate one he goes back in time to where he is being born and kills himself. - twistedk123

No matter what happens in life like a death there is still time to be happy

Grown man and I cried like a baby. A must see for any father

351Benji: The Hunted

This has got to be the saddest movie of all time! No lie, I was crying 10 minutes in. By the end, there were tears streaming down my eyes, and I was bawling uncontrollably. This is the saddest movie I've ever seen, or at least animal movie.

I cried several times in this movie. And what makes it worse, it's hard to find (I've only been able to find it on iTunes).


It's such a good but sad movie, I was in tears at the end even though he came back to life. It's also sad that this movie is so underrated.

353Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

How is this not even in the top 5?!? Seriously, how can anyone not be sadden or touched by this film? The ending had to be one of the most emotional scenes I've seen in a film!

I won't post a spoiler but this film needs to be in top 20! I tear up every time I watch it and that's a lot since 2003!

It truly is a tearjerking movie. One of the brightest and most touching films in motion picture history. I'm not even lying. Go watch it for yourself. You really need to see this movie before you die.

355Now is Good

Such a sad film about a girl who has cancer
