Top Ten Saddest Movies


The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Madame X

. The ending was so very depressing and maddening at the same time. I wanted him to know that was his mother. It just broke my heart.

122Boys Don't Cry

Watched this with my girlfriend last night... When they shot Brandon I don't think I've ever cried so hard... A beautiful tragic love story...

Based on a tragic true story. If this doesn't tug your heartstrings I'd check your pulse.

The only movie to have ever actually made me cry

Great film very sad worth a watch

This movie have a beautiful twist that make u feel down, when bullying and rejection never let u show what u r inside

124One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

It's sad because of how that disgusting nurse tormented people who were special. I would not wanna end up like those people.

The tragic ending to the fate of the part played by Jack Nicholson, will, if you really watch this movie, damage you for life.

This movie should be easily number 1. I've watched many films in my life but none are as sad as this!


I don't cry anything like most people, but this movie had me balling. I mean, my sisters keeper got a few tears from me, but this one had a puddle. It is the most terribly beautifully perfect movie ever. Very raw emotions.

Amazing movie. Cried a lot during the second half of it. So much that I actually contemplated watching it blurry eyed because I was sobbing so much and went through so many tissues.

I've seen movies higher up on the list... But this beats every single one of them! I watch it every nihgt, and every night I cry. I tear up just thinking about it. I don't want to spoil it, but (spoiler alert) the fact that he has to push Natalie away to make her not sad when he dies is so hard for him and me watching it.

It's the best movie iv ever watched... Even though I cried the whole time!

The Bible says there is no greater love than to lay down your life for a friend which is exactly how this film ended. So touching.

127Chasing Amy
128White Squall
129John Q

How is john q this high seriously. This is sad movie about parent that is going to lose the most important thing, and would do anything to save them. Any real parent would understand the pure emotions behind this

What makes it so sad, is that some people might have to do something like this to get help for their kids. - RdrTech

130Dear John

This was a sad movie. I love channing tatum. I know ow he felt when his dad died because I watched that movie a week after I lost my grandmother. - cheyeanne

This is definitely a tear jerker. More so than the Titanic, in my opinion. It's one of the most heartfelt and emotionally challenging movies out there with Hachi, Marley & Me, The Notebook and so on. Very good plot, also.

I usually don't like romantic drama movies, but after watching this one, I changed my opinion about these completely. a little bit confusing movie about characters, but also very touching and sad movie 4.9/5

I cried when I saw this movie, so emotional and heartwarming.

131Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

This should be much higher, not the saddest movie, but very sad, especially when Anakin, as Darth Vader, burns almost to death, it almost captured the concept of what it's like in hell, although that moment was only momentary, whereas being in hell is forever.

How the hell is this at number 98? I didn't cry watching the titanic or the notebook, but I cried watching this! And yes, I'm a girl. The part where the clones kill all the jedi, the part where Anakin killed the younglings, the part where Anakin force choked Padme, the part where Anakin was left burning... It's all so sad!

You didn't Need to say you're a girl, we could've figured that out on our own. - Therandom

The part when Anakin force chokes Padme, it was enough to make me cry. Also the part when Obi-Wan was fighting with Anakin, and Anakin burns. Lets also not forget the saddest part...Padme's funeral

One of the best movies ever made and the saddest ever made as well

132My Dog Skip

I saw this once, I was just flipping through the channels and I landed on it. I watched the whole thing, I got to the end and I just cried, it was so sad. Really sweet movie, though I'm not a dog lover but this movie, I think may have changed my mind about them a little.

I have only ever watched this movie once. We cried for days after seeing it. It was then promptly banned from the house as my parents didn't want to deal with sobbing wet messes every where they went. I think they also worried for the dog, as we were hugging him so tight he could barely move.

If you have ever loved a dog, this movie will destroy you. Truly, the saddest movie I have EVER seen! Nothing comes close to it...

Watched this thinking it was going to be a silly kids movie. Fell in love with the characters and cried my eyes out.

134Monsters, Inc.

I can't stop crying when sully has to put boo back in her room and boo thinks he came for a playdate and she hands him her toys. When she opens her closet and sully is gone I always scream because I'm so upset.

138Pearl Harbor

Its an amazing film when I watched the end I just cried my eyes out and I'm not a cryie person so it must be sad my mum said the first time she watched it she cried too. I haven't seen a film so sad before.

I choose Pearl Harbor Why? Because besides that fact, that I cry a river every time I watch a movie - doesn't matter if it's a comedy or a drama, I especially cry a sea, when I watch Pearl Harbor. It is and will stay on my list of top 5 sad movies, and then it's Remember me and so on and on.. - tinabirk

Such an awesome film have watched it so many times and I still cry at so many parts of this movie! Josh Hartnett is so sexy

There were several moments I felt like crying. Plus, Kate beckinsale is so hot.
