Top Ten Saddest Movies


The Contenders: Page 25XW

481Charlie St. Cloud

This is the saddest movie I've ever watched. This movies is just got me cry all the time, I watched it with my brother, and just like me, my brother also cried.

Seriously people? I had to add this to the list!?!
This is the saddest thing ever! Especially because zac!

482Rain Man
483Red Riding Hood

It was so sad when the wolf bit the man's hand at the end

This is a great movie


It was so scary that I couldn't see it again and so many people died as well

486Dead Man Walking

This movie has two things: Nuns and death row inmates, the last 30 minutes of the film is so powerful that it left my whole classroom quiet, the only sounds left in the room were the sounds of tissues being blown.

I honestly can't believe Titanic is all the way up there at number one, when this movie can make grown men murmur "This room is dusty is all" while trying to suck up the mucus streaming down their nose.

487Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Can't recommend enough. Absolutely broke me

This movie was so sad! I cried twice :(

488Mulan II
489Ek Duuje Ke Liye
490Goodnight Mister Tom

If this film doesn't make you cry like a baby, your heart must be made of stone


I can agree. this movie is good. so far I like Ryan Reynolds's only this movie. - zxm

492The Deep Blue Sea

Sad throughout the entire movie! Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston make it amazing and so real. I can't sit through this movie without crying. I'm crying by the first 20 minutes!

493Dear Frankie

Wonderful film.. The child actor is awesome. Beautiful display of understated emotions.


This movie is the MOST saddest movies in life! All of the main character's friends and family got their lives taken away by some green light monster! This movie scares me. When you see the end, you may never want to see this movie AGAIN.

495A Home of our Own
497Lost and Delirious

Not a well known film but if you can relate to the situation the characters are in, especially Paulie, it is heart wrenching

I love this movie, and I cried a lot...
The actors play their roles really good, I think :)
The end is so sad :(
You really have to watch this film

498Where the Heart Is

Just saw this again today and cried.


First movie I saw where I literally couldn't breathe from crying so much!
It literally gutted me. I was very young when I saw it and have only seen it one other time as I got older and it still ripped me apart. James Stewart is wonderful!

500The Earthling

A dying man and a lost kid teach each other about life? Great acting and beautiful landscape as a backdrop? How did it not make this list...
