Top Ten Saddest Movies

The Top Ten Saddest Movies

1 Schindler's List

How Titanic is higher then this makes me want to cry... Again... - findouter

This is not only a very sad film, but one of the best ever created. A truly exceptional piece of cinema. You have to be truly heartless to not cry in this film.

Certainly a very moving and powerful film, beautiful realised and immensely crafted, a true masterpiece. Amongst many amazing scenes, one always makes me cry, it is set close to the end of the film, where Oscar Schindler has to flee and is given a gold ring made from the tooth of one of the Jewish workers he has saved, He breaks down on realising that he could have saved more people, he looks at his car, 10 people, I could have saved 10 more people, he looks at his gold Nazi pin, I could have saves two people, this is gold, two people, definitely one. There is a moment when he has a look of utter loss and despair on his face and this is some of the finest acting I have seen, let alone in this film itself. How Liam Neeson did not win the Oscar for his performance beggars belief

Its determined to be the saddest because it hits close at home. A family member of mine was in it so that what makes it 10 times more depressing for me.

2 Titanic

I think this movie is the best love story ever, but is so sad. I cried a lot and I'm not that type of person that cry in the movies. I love Jack and Rose. Vote for the best movie ever.

I think this movie is absolutely amazing. I love it. I watched it when I was 12 and it left me absolutely distraught. Depressed for days after. The film is 3 hours long and I cried for about 1.5 hours. I think the actors are amazing and have made really made a truly depressing master piece. Thank you for letting us see the true horrors of what happened that horrible day.

Sad sad sad sad sad a film can't be this sad its just not right I can't watch it without crying last time I watched it I got de-hydrated

My crush was named after Jack in this movie, so I watched it. Very sad movie.

3 The Green Mile

Maybe I shed a tear in The Notebook, and possibly Titanic but I have NEVER burst into tears, and got thick-throated, whilst watching a film like I did in The Green Mile. Truly Amazing story!

This is an incredibly powerful and sad movie, if you don't cry by the end you aren't human!

This is the saddest movie ever made way sadder than titanic

Titanic isn't sad at all. It's just a boring, depressing piece of garbage. - AlphaQ

Titanic ahead of this...this is possibly the saddest movie ever created

4 Forrest Gump

I adore this movie, I can watch it a thousand times and never get board. Its extreamly sad

Forrest gump is one of the most powerful films I have ever seen, I love it and I'm sure you all do too. it is inspiring and emotional, and the storyline is incredible. the story of forrests&jennys love is beautiful

Lol this movie wasn't sad but it has a good message and was funny at some parts. - AlphaQ

How could they do that to Bubba. Honestly when Forrest was talking to SPOILER ALERT Jenny’s grave I died a hundred times.

5 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

A heart felt story, that would have anyone cry in

VERY sad... I would definitely suggest this movie if your looking for a tearjerker throughout most of the movie! You'll wanna watch this movie over and over again. If You don't cry in this movie you are Heart-less!

I'm a heart-less? Oh, I would prefer to be part of the bad-ass Organization XIII - idontknow

A film you will never forget, that will make everyone who watches it emotional! Very sad film!

Never again! It's recommended for those who want heartache. A movie that I shouldn't have watch, as it gives me sorrow than tears.

6 Up

The first ten minutes were enough to make anyone cry -

Just the beginning had me in floods of tears! Where they can't have kids and when his wife dies! Very very sad!

I cried 4 times during this film... in the cinema!
I've never cried more than once in a film besides this, nor have I cried in the cinemas before this! The most depressing film of all time :(

The first ten minutes are enough to make even the most emotionless men cry

7 Grave of the Fireflies

Rate here after watching this film, sure titanic should below this!

Very, very sad! Titanic should be below it!
Anyways, this movies is the only movie here I see that has gotten me close to tears

It just says something that when I think of this movie I start to tear up.

I've watched Titanic, the Note book, My Sister's keeper, and all those other films which are supposed to make you cry, but they don't affect me. This film, however, had me in tears by the end of it, I was still crying long after the end of the credits. There is something so brutal in the matter-of-fact way death is treated and shown in this film, the way it is accepted. Most sad films tend to ere towards melodramatic, but this simple, understated way of dealing with death shows how many thousands of others went through the exact same thing as the two protagonist, which doesn't help when you're already bawling your eyes out. The artwork is beautiful and subtle, everything about this film is perfect, and it's the only film I've ever watched that has made me cry, so in my opinion, it is by far the saddest movie ever. Number 1, biggest tear-jerker.

8 Marley and Me

My family were all in tears at the end of the movie - ACDCRocks

One of the saddest movies I have ever seen. A truly passionate film. A lovely combination of love, happiness and sadness. A fantastic, but extremely sad, film.

A very sad and Touching movie that the Whole Family will Laugh and Cry Together. A Movie that Everyone will love.

The saddest part was when Marley became a SoundCloud rapper doggo and overdosed on cookie treats. - AlphaQ

9 Hachi: A Dog's Tale

It should be the top, one of the best movies,... A dog's love and loyalty! Really different.. A friendship that can be last forever

Really, it should be at least the top 5! Firstly I don't think it would be nice movie, but I kept watching and then... Suddenly my tears came out, again again again and sobbed, haha. Really, this is best movie to pick if you want to cry a lot

One of the saddest movies I've ever seen but at least you learn how to take care about your dog and realize how loyal they are

Hachi is one of the best movies! I really cried! It hurts a lot! And it's a true story in Japan! That dog is very loyal to his owner and the part that made me cry is when Hachi ran away from his home even when it's far away to wait and greet his owner! The saddest part is that he didn't know his owner died and he's been waiting in the train station for years! He never gave up waiting until the end of his life! And he only met his owner a few years ago! That's what's made him a loyal dog! I recommend this movie to everyone! The best true story ever made!

10 Requiem for a Dream

This movie stuck with me for quite a while, after watching it, I felt depressed for days. I couldn't understand how one movie could have such an incredible effect on me.

Truly sad Movie. Some movies that are mention here aren't sad. I don't know why they are listed.

One of the saddest movies of all time, this one is a real punch in the guts...before the end already. The end itself is Sadtopia.

Totally agree with you. I haven't seen another movie sadder than this. IT totally crushes you and makes you feel and experience the futility/ fragility of human life itself filled with all the vices that so very convincingly lure us in the beginning only to leave us destroyed at the end. No words could describe the movie. People who can appreciate movie for the stories they narrate - you have missed something if you haven't watched this movie!

The Newcomers

? Robocop
? How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

The Contenders

11 The Notebook

I love this movie so much! It makes me cry like a baby every time :'(
I'm easy to start crying, but this totally makes me drown in my tears...

It toughed my heart and made me feel something I have never felt for movies ever. It made me cry for days it's a unforgettable romance.

This movie touches on real life experiences and what could actually happen to you! I don't see why this isn't number 1. Movies that are based on real life should have more meaning and touch your heart, the Notebook gets me every single time. And also The Curious Case of Benjamin Button should be on this list too!

Every time I watch this movie I cry at the end. I always cry the moment Noah walks into Ally's room. I think this movie is the true meaning of love. My father told me every year after he dies on his birthday I have to watch this move. I just love this movie. I would watch this every day if I could. My brother has no feelings so he won't cry during this so I won't talk to him. I love the part when Noah fixes the house up just for Ally and she comes back to the house. I just love it! I believe in love now because of this movie. This is the way I would like to die.

12 Saving Private Ryan

I saw this movie when I was 12 with my aunt and cousins. It was the strangest experience I've ever had in a movie theater. When the movie ended, it felt like a funeral. No one looked at each other, everyone was silent. And some men still sat in their seats staring blankly at the screen. It felt so somber, like it was an accepted sad for what had to be done. It probably didn't help that my great grandfather was in that war, and had never spoke of it at all. Until the summer before he died that winter, we sat up one night playing cards and he told me everything. From how he hid against a tree, and could feel the bullets. And he said he felt he couldn't get small enough. How he got his two silver stars, and ultimately how his brother died in the war. My aunt honestly apologized to us in the car, saying she didn't know it was going to be like that.

Saddest war film besides Spielberg's other movie Schindler's List and Studio Ghibli's deeply harrowing and heartbreaking masterpiece, Grave of the Fireflies

I have always been very satisfied with movies that do not hesitate to starkly portray the brutality of what actually happened. Although I have watched this movie time and time again, it always exceeds expectations. The last moment, "Earn this... " caused tears in my eyes.

This movie was so fulfilling and action packed and sad. It made me understand just a tenth of what these amazing soldiers do for our country and for other soldiers. I highly recommend watching this movie to see just how amazing our soldiers are and how much they do for us. For sure cried in this movie. You can't help but shed a few tears. Alec Baldwin truly is amazing!

13 Million Dollar Baby

I still cry. It caught me in a strange way. I never intended to watch this movie, but somehow I sat down and watched until the painful, heartbreaking end.
Today, when I was telling a friend about it, I cried like a river.
...the moment, when Clint Eastwood told the girl (Hilary Swank) the meaning of the oriental name on her fight-silk-coat, the moment when he had removed the respirator, her tears of love and happines (she was loved), death, was all so much too much.
The speed, the lack of sentimenality...the bond between those 2. It just breaks my heart, the bittersweet end. The cruelty of fate, it's not fair! The loss...I'm still carry that loss along with me.

Strange, how some movies can grap your heart, hold it, squeeze it...and you'll never be the same, as it usually happens, when your heart is touched - strongly - in ways only God and/or Higher Powers will understand.

Million Dollar Baby might not be the most popular movie on this list but it sure as hell is the saddest. The movie really struck a chord with me especially since I recently lost a friend to suicide. This movie really shows the beautiful as well as the heartbreaking moments we live through. Clint Eastwood is truly a brilliant director, producer and actor.

What a great experience in understanding lost relationships. Whoever has lost a person in a lifetime and has to go on was touched by this movie. A great study of characters involved in their own world and dealing with outcomes they are not in control of. I am reminded of the movie "They Shoot Horses, Don't They"? What is a humane action if not allowing a person to choose their own destiny.

This movie is not only sad, it leaves you with a literal pit in your stomach that tears don't seem to erase. So good; you really understand the dilemma and love the characters.

14 Life Is Beautiful

Watching a father do everything he can to shield his son from the absurdity and hatred around him restores faith in a humanity that almost slipped away in those dark days during WW2. I've never cried seeing a tank in my whole life until I saw this movie.

I didn't cry when I saw it the first time but my heart was for sure!
I was shocked at the end of the movie.
Second time I saw it a cried like a baby. and I cried loud!
Life is beautiful is not just a movie.. it's a masterpiece

I just watched movie and next moment is me laying and crying in bed listening killing me softly and purple rain

This movie is so sad. The ending is happy though. Spoilers ahead! I get upset every time the dad dies, it is so heartbreaking.

15 Toy Story 3

I am not the crying-over-books-and-movies type, but the scene when Andy was giving his toys to Bonnie was so emotional, that I burst into tears along with the whole cinema. Titanic is a sad movie too, one of the saddest by far, but this one has just left a something in me. The same thing happens to everyone. As we grow up, we get rid of things from our childhood. It just reminded me of myself a long time ago, playing with my toys, being a happy child and now I am leaving for college as Andy, and thus we are both leaving our memories behind us.

Cried when the toys were about to die in the furnace at the dump. Holy hell, best friends dying together. So sad. First perfect movie I think I've ever seen.

The final scene was so emotional I just cried. No other movie has ever made me cry, even Titanic. But when (SPOILER ALERT) Andy gives his toys to Bonnie, I just broke. Of all movies, I never thought that a Toy Story movie would make me cry. Damn you Pixar!

, just full of my childhood memories. The part where Andy had to give up his toys just made me weep like a little baby (":

16 Old Yeller

This movie is good but sad when they are in the woods and the hogs hurt travis and yeller

I would argue that in terms of "boy and his animal" type films, Kes was a ore powerful film.

Obviously few of you voting have seen this movie. If you had, it would definitely be near the top. Also Where the Red Fern Grows.

The book Where the Red Fern Grows is much more sad than the movie itself. The book made me cry, and it's hard to get me to cry when reading books. - Transformers234

Old yeller is one of my dads favorite. movies! But not mine it makes me cry! But the oldest boy is cute

17 I Am Legend

I admit that prior to being diagnosed bipolar II, this 30 yr old male could cry and did cry at most of the sad parts in movies. That stopped once I started taking my medications. However, watching I am Legend, even while taking my meds, I started tearing up the moment it showed Sam limping and slump over. Will Smith's genuine reaction of hopelessness and grief was hard to watch and both Neville (Will) and the audience knows what is going to happen. By the time Will Smith knelt down on the floor with his dog and only dying friend in his arms, tears were flowing uncontrollably down my face. I I don't know what was saddest for me,... The part where the virus took over Sam and Neville had to choke her to death as he cried... Or the solemn, post burial SUV ride where we see a distraught Neville slightly glance over at the empty seat where Sam had always been. Then we see him begging the female mannequin to "please talk to me" after and break down into tears. All that trauma and it all ...more

Walking away from his family watching as they leve in a helicopter a zombie smashes it on the ground. As the one of the only people in New York City with zombies everywhere is devastating. Killing the only thing close to him now his dog as it turns into a zombie is very sad. I have to say this is the saddest movie ever

Saddest and most amazing ending a movie can have and the part when his dog died was even more sad. Will Smith was amazing, best movie ever made.

There was one scene that made me cry, and I don't ever cry from movies! A wonderful performance from Will Smith and a stressful amount of sorrow made this scene one to remember forever.

18 The Pursuit of Happyness

It's just beautiful I cried a whole lot more than will smith cried at the end (with happiness)

At the end the movie we will come to know whats is actual happiness means. When there a true happiness can you control the tears

This movie is the most acurate opinion on what true happiness is. Not to mention I cried like most of the movie and this should be number one no joke!

! I Love this movie but it hit too close to home with my father! I paused this movie about a hundred times trying to catch my breathe I cried so hard I just couldn't control it! I love whoever wrote this it caught raw emotion it griped my by the heart and didn't let go, just thinking about it makes me want to cry as I am typing this. I was so happy for him at the end that I stood up in my living room face full of tears and clapped and cheered with joy laugh out loud. I just love this movie and will watch it all the way through again when I have a box full of tissues, and my boyfriend lends his shoulder to cry on!

19 My Girl

This is the saddest movie I have ever seen. When she goes to his funeral and says he needs his glasses, I just couldn't stop crying. The fact that he went back to get her ring, that made it even harder to stop crying.

I'm 11, and watched this by myself. I went to my moms room and said nothing sad had been happening yet, she said just wait. 15 minutes later I come in weeping. Next day I made my friend watch it. She cried and I cried with her. I don't know why, but I keep watching it and crying. I think it's my favorite movie, but the saddest, other than Steel Magnolias. I'm literally crying now thinking about it...

This movie is truly one of the saddest I've ever seen I never cry but this movie got me to shed a few tears because I saw myself in the main character you fall in love with their friendship then it all gets torn apart this movie broke my heart into a million pieces but it showed me what true unconditional love looks like.

If you ever wanted to meet the real Vada, I am her. I have had a best friend die, I have had a crush on my teacher, I live in a funeral home, I am a hypochondriac, I am spunky and bossy, so I am your

20 West Side Story

I was a freshman in high school when I got cast as Maria in our production of West Side Story. I didn't know the story that well but it being a Romeo and Juliet based story with rival gangs but I cried so hard in the end when everyone was fighting and dying

I was crying so much that I used up a whole tissue box. It's really sad when Tony dies trying to look for Maria.

It's so romantic and sad! It's my favorite movie ever and I cry every time!

The saddest part of this film is knowing that ICE wasn't doing their job even back then. - Cush77

21 A.I. - Artificial Intelligence

YES. There is a difference between tragic and sad- and this one is truly sad, because it is also uplifting somewhat. That is what makes it sad

The little boy, all he wanted was one more day with his mother and he was willing to to let her go because one day was enough.! So said!

This has got to be number one. The world ends, everybody is dead and the little robot boy goes to hell just to get one day with a fake mother that goes away and then he shuts down forever. Nobody really wins in this one... NOBODY. - Rocky5

Just a sad story about a boy who is not a boy and is programmed to love his mother who loves him enough to save his life, but not enough to make a stand for him. Then to wait for thousands of years, for one moment- one wish-- it is so bitter sweet, but so extremely sad. I probably project too much of my own experience to be objective, so well done Steven! I have only been able to watch it the one time.

22 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

I don't normally cry like a kid, but the ending of this movie made me bawl my eyes out like a baby.

Amazing film, Great cast and great story line. One of the best films I've ever watched.

This movie made me cry when I watched it but I never cried at the titanic it's so funny that I never cried at the titanic. Titanic it's a very sad movie

Literally one of the only movies I cry at every time I watch it! - Bee_Bird

23 Bambi

Did anyone forget that sad scene cause I sure didn't.

The death of Bambi's mom is one of the saddest moments in film history, other than that it is just a charming movie about growing up in the wood. The Fox and the Hound should be here. - 445956

It still get on mu nerves when he's looking for mom in the dark snow and a whispering kind song in the background.

Both scarring and scaring generations of children since 1942. Bambi stands alone and unrivalled forever.

24 Click

This is the greatest film of all time, the godfather has nothing on this.

One of the first movies I ever cried at! Adam Sandler is such a great drama actor.

The raining part is AMAZING... the background music just made me cry.. damn you adam sandler with your awesome acting! ;D - SmoothCriminal

The part where he found out when his dad died and rewinded back to the last time he saw him... I DROWNED IN MY OWN TEARS

25 Into the Wild

It's one of the saddest movies I've ever watched... I am horrified it's not in the list. I really started to cry at the end of the movie. I couldn't help it. And I couldn't stop crying! It was so... Tragic. I mean it's no very famous movie but I think it should be. It's based on a true story and... Well, I don't know how I can describe the feelings that I has while watching it...

Just the fact that this was based on a true story makes it far sadder. Very depressing.

The saddest movie I have Ever seen and one of the best with the best soundtrack as well. Should be number 1.

Very good comment from one of the visitor. It's based on true story. So this movie makes sense. - zxm

26 Mary and Max

Not very well known but an absolute gem and well worth making the effort to watch. This Australian clay-animated bittersweet comedy stars the voices of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Toni Collette, Barry Humphries and others. It is very funny, very real, and quite life-affirming in a strange sort of way. I challenge anyone to watch it and not like it.

I've welled up over a the content of movie before, but the end of Mary & Max is the first movie that ever made me full blown cry. It's quirky, charming, sweet, and dark throughout, and even the end has its ray of sunshine, but it is so awesomely, incredibly sad.

I was looking for the saddest movie that was ever made. It is definitely the saddest I've ever seen. And at the same time it is one of the most beautiful ones.
Keep the tissues close, and vote this movie up because it deserves a top ten spot!

Best movie I've seen in the last few years. I was reluctant to watch it because it didn't seem good with all that brown and gray and the synopsis sounded dull, but it IS SO GOOD! So sad and so sweet. Anyone who gives it a chance adores it.

27 The Fox and the Hound

I remember when I was little I watched this and I cried so much that it looked like I was in a pool it was such a good movie and I would for sure recommend it

To tell you the truth. This movie was really said to me. In elementary we were watching this movie and it made me really sad. The part that made me sad was when the lady dropped off the poor fox in the forest. This movie was one of my favorites, really sad for me. In class most of the people were tearing up. I could never forget these kind of movies. It's like my childhood and still is.

I just watched this and to be honest: my make up is all over my face and I can't even talk or breath. First time that I watched it since I was 5 or so and didn't remember much of it. I haven't cried this much in a year, oh god. All these kind of animal stories make me emotional like a pregnant woman.

Oh my GOSH! This movie! I absolutely love 'the Fox and the Hound', but that one part where Tod is left in the forest and there's the sad music and and Tod is doesn't know what's coming and and and (me: start crying) IT SO SAD!

28 The Elephant Man

This is a sad movie I watched 3 times and I can't get my self to watch it again its that sad

This is such a sad movie especially when the elephant sat on the man, I cryied - AlphaQ

This film is heartbreaking! It doesn't involve a love story or a revenge story, it's just about one unfortunate man who wants to be accepted in society. John Hurts performance was outstanding here.

I had to keep pausing this movie because I couldn't hear it over the sound of my crying. It's sad at first because of how badly they treat the Elephant Man. But then when you learn that the Elephant Man is a very intelligent, sensitive man U realize he's been fully aware of everyone's cruelty, and it becomes 10 times sadder.

29 Dumbo

Oh I love my mother, she's my everything. When I saw the scene where Dumbo was visiting his mother that was captured away from him I started crying. It's really sad to see a child being kept away from the biggest part of his life, his mother. And the song at that scene was vert emotional, it touched my feelings. This may be an animated/cartoon movie, but the story is very sad, it shows how much love a mother can have for her child and why we need them. A great sad movie! It's been years since I've been watching it and I still adore it for the lovely message this movie deliveres. Just heart-touching :(

Are you kidding? The scene when Dumbo goes to visit his mother and the song "Baby of Mine" plays makes me weep. Every moment of that scene is completely heartbreaking.

No movie has ever made me cry more than Dumbo (believe me, I've never cried during a movie). I ALMOST cried when Dumbo went to see his mother when she was being kept in Solitary Confinement

The bit when he goes to see his mum has me in an actual breakdown

30 Gone with the Wind

I haven't seen the movie but the book made me cry so much when the mom died and when melanie died

Very sad when the girl falls off the horse and dies in that one scene. :(

It's sad because his girls clothes were blown away. - AlphaQ

I cried so hard when their daughter Bonnie died

31 Gran Torino

The ending is very sad in this movie, very good film though, I highly recommend watching it.

Clint Eastwood is an amazing director and actor and this movie proves that

This movie was so great! Some plot twists in here though stick in your head for days on end... Truly sad but rewarding to watch movie.

Great lessons about overcoming xenophobia. You never really know a person until you know what they go through. In Atticus Finch's words, "Til you stand in their skin and walk around in it a little".

32 The Shawshank Redemption

How can #1 be on #81. every time I watch this movie I cry. this is a movie which can make mike tyson cry!

So many different emotions shown and has some very sad parts

Such a great movie, and I don't approve of movies like The Deer Hunter, Raging Bull, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, and Rain Man are not on here! - Wonderwall

When it showed that he wrote "Brooks was here" before he hanged himself, I just burst into tears and cried the rest of the movie.

33 No Country for Old Men

This movie is an artwork. For sure one of the saddest and best movies I have ever seen.

The most bleakly depressing movie I ever watched

34 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

From the music to the acting, Simply the best movie out there period.

Jim Carey's performance in this was amazing. Completely different to his usual cheerful character. One word: Amazing

Kind of confused as to how this is not already on the list.
The sheer helplessness you can feel if you imagine having all your memories erased of one particular person is simply astounding. Watch. This. Movie. It's amazing.

Oh god if this movie didn't make you feel anything then you are not a human being

35 Seven Pounds

How is this not in the top 10? It's Beautiful. Made me cry the first time I saw it. Sure Titanic and The Notebook are beautiful, but seven pounds is just... Go watch the movie!

I was shocked at how powerful this film is, blows away most of the top ten. Its done it such a way its trying to be strong not sad but it breaks through to your soul. Just amazing.

This film broke my heart. I lived through the emotions of will smith and I sobbed like a baby at the end. The second time I watched it, I cried from the beginning. Totally heartbreaking

This is one of my favorite movies along with movies like good will hunting and what dreams may come, I wish that I was strong enough to do something relevant with my life like this.

36 The Bridge To Terabithia

I showed this to my best friend two years ago. I've never seen her cry as much as she did when she saw this movie. And we cried together for hours. Josh Hutcherson is really talented!

I loved this movie so much I cried for the rest of the movie after his parents told him she was dead! BEST SAD MOVIE OF ALL TIME!

This movie shows you that how the kid imagination and his friends is almost his life so we must respect him and the things he loves

! I was bawling my eyes out for hours! When I realized she was dead, I could not stop crying. I watched it in 2019 with a bunch of my friends and we were all bawling our eyes out. Best Saddest Movie Ever!

37 A Monster Calls

I didn't expect this film to be as sad and emotional as it was, but I was honestly heartbroken by the end when the kid's mother died.

A friend and I took our (then) 12 year old daughters to watch this on New Year's Day - I don't think I've ever felt so miserable leaving the cinema! Like someone else said, other films on the list are good and worth watching, but this is the saddest film ever. I don't even know if I could watch it again.

This deserves a spot in the top ten really. It is very relatable which makes it so very raw. It rips into your heart like no other film can, and I cannot even think about it without coming close to shedding a tear. I spent a whole night drowning in tears for this one.

Saddest movie I have watched

38 The Lion King

The little lion was under his dad's paw saying, "wake up dad! "... So sad! I cried a bucket of tears.

The only movie scene that ever made me cry was when mufasas death

I'm 24 and this is the only one film, at which I can cry. The songs are perfect for that - especialy "Circle of Life" and "To die for". For me the best animated and the saddest movie ever!

I just saw it today and really,
Why was I the only one who cried at the theater?
More tears are need!

39 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Just after the moments with Order 66, which was sad, that's where the real sadness kicks in.

This is one of the saddest movies ever because first of all Anakin has to choose to kill his uncle/farther figure Palpatine to destroy the sith and win the war for the Jedi but Palpatine is the only person who knows how to save his secret wife Padme and there unborn baby and Anakin must join him to become a sith, then when he turns over to the dark side he must kill all the younglings and Palpatine excutes order 66 the order to kill all the jedi. Palpatine turns the republic democracy into a dictaship empire. All the wookies are either slaughted or enslaved, Obi Wan must face Anakin to save the galaxy, he doesn't want to hurt him because Anakin is like a Son/Brother to him. Padme confronts her husband and he is angry and scared for he and then he chokes his pregnant wife, Obi Wan stops him and fights him until he wins by chopping his limbs off and watching him burn, knowing that he has failed his two best friends his master and his aprentice then padme has her children then dies and ...more

I didn’t cry the first time I watched this movie, but I did think it was sad. My favourite Star Wars movie.

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.

40 Stand By Me

Stand By Me is definitely a tear jerker type and the only thing hay surprises me is that it is not higher up on the list. The film depicts the boys, all of them, as overall loveable and admirable characters which then makes the ending even more unbearable. It also makes me sad at the end where they all go separate ways and at the end of the summer say: "Yeah, I'll see you all again." and then they never do. It's a worthwhile film, most definitely.

I guess what makes this film so sad is the fact you know the ending the entire time and the more you get to know and love the boys the more you wish the ending is just a lie. But when he's typing on that computer about his best friend you just can't help but burst into tears

"I'll see you". "Not if I see you first. "
I cry every time and maybe it's because River Phoenix just kind of vanishes and I connect that to his death. But also the loss innocence in all of the boys. It's a really emotional movie and River Phoenix delivers an amazing performance.

I voted for Jack which is in 49th place. Now I see this. I wish I didn't vote for Jack and this instead. I never cried during any movie so far but this one almost got me. My favorite movie of all time.

41 Ghost

My god... Get the tear buckets ready! This film's ending was the saddest thing I've seen.

I thought this film was great. I really did think mum was exadurating about how sad it was until I watched it! Should be number one for definite, I've never actually cried that much about a film before! Great film, a must watch old classic... ,

I cried and cried and cried at this film. It just shows you that life is so unfair. Molly and Sam are so perfect and good why.. Ah

How is this not number one?! First time I have ever needed to leave the room becaue I was crying so bad!

42 Terms of Endearment

THIS MOVIE SHOULD BE #1 on the list. Pearl Harbor movie is higher on the list than this... Surely you jest!

I have never cried so hard from watching a movie until Terms of Endearment. This movie should be in the top ten list!

Terms of endearment is the ultimate sad story with meaning behind it. Nothing compares.

Saddest movie I have ever seen! It is also a beautiful story, I love this but can only watch it when prepared to cry.

43 I am Sam

This is surely a wonderful movie, I watched it more than 5 times but the scenes still get me teary...

WHat can I say about it! The words can't express how this Movie is awesome!
I really cried throughout 130 min

I admit that myself is not a emotional person especially on watching movie. but this movie brings my tears. although is not a love story between couple, but the father and daughter's love truly make this movie become more special. I believe that myself had cry from the start of the movie till the end. I can still remember that whole movie although many years had pass. this is definitely the great tears movie ever! - Eiffel

I could not agree more! This was an incredibly telling and sad movie! Could not stop crying.

44 Braveheart

What! It deserves higher! Perhaps the best movie of all time! - philosnav

Braveheart is probably one of the best movies of all time... It is one of those films that can make you cry no matter how many times you have watched it. It is also one of the 5 saddest films of all time in my opinion. It has an amazing acting crew, especially Mel Gibson. The film also inspires people and showes that you don't have to accept what you're born with and showes that somebody can rise above all and fight for the freedom. That is what the Braveheart is all about.

It surely deserves a better ranking.. One of the most heart touching movies.. Who did not shed a tear when mel gibson died.. The movie inspires a person to rise and fight for his rights.. Be it freedom or revenge for love... In love with the movie and can watch it any number of times..

Seen around 15 times and it always makes to cry and touch very deep. A very beautiful and powerful movie with fantastic music. I find it is without a doubt the ever best. Letters from Iwo Jima or Million dollar baby are excellent too but does do the same effect.

45 I'm Not Ashamed

Yeah - Spiritualsavedboy

The true sad part of this film is when the film made her a martyr. I have done research, and she was just shot. she was not given a choice, despite what the film tells you. That is what is sad. That a tradegy was used to push an agenda. Do your research. - Frouze

It is extremely arrogant to think you know more than the people who were there that day. The boy who was sitting next to her on the lawn that day confirmed that she was killed for her faith. What's sad is all the people like you who cover up the truth. And you know what? It only further vindicates her story. Why do people want the martyr story covered up so badly? Because they hate the truth. You are the ones with the agenda.

46 Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

An experience like no other. Harrowing and incredibly personal.

Titanic... Really. Although this is a documentary, Dear Zachary is the saddest movie I have ever seen. The depth of despair you will experience is something that no other movie has been able to do for me. Requiem for a Dream is another one that grips you tight and wont let go but it has nothing on Dear Zachary. Watch at your own risk

Look up nothing about this movie like I did, and trust me when I say that it's a punch to the gut once you watch it. Movies rarely make me cry, but Dear Zachary is the biggest exception. Easily the saddest movie I've ever seen, and also the most personal. You will cry, there's no doubt about it. - nerffan8000

I have never seen such a movie with so much suffering in it, a must see for anyone that has a heart. I do agree that you should be warned going in to this, that this movie is without a doubt the saddest movie I have ever seen.

47 Steel Magnolias

If I ever need a good cry, I watch this movie. The end of the movie when the mother is screaming and crying really gets me every time. It's just so terrible knowing she has to deal with her daughter passing away. I would have handled it the same way she did.

That this is so low on the list shows how many of these people haven't watched it. The only movie sadder than this one is Terms of Endearment and apparently none of you have watched it either.

So right--makes me cry every time, along with terms of endearment as well

Magnificent cast. When it's led by Sally Field, that's always a great start, but Olympia Dukakis and Shirley MacLaine are awesome and funny. Dolly Parton really shows that she's not just a singer, and Julia Roberts is perfect for the part of the daughter. Great movie.

48 Logan

Yeah this was heartbreaking. It was also Hugh Jackman's last movie as Wolverine. It's like TWO heartbreaking goodbyes.

Greatest Marvel movie of all time but not just that, it's also one of the greatest movies of all time and its very sad.

How is LOGAN number 222. This movie is sad when Wolverine dies. Wolverine is one of the best Marvel characters. - deandinosaur5

This isn't my favorite comic book movie. It is my favorite movie period - Batmaniscole

49 The Way We Were

The title song alone brings me as close to tears as anything - Billyv

The last scene of this film with the music also plays in my head anytime I remember the 70s in my country. Remembering happier times.

50 Batman Begins

Ultimate movie ever. I saw it 30 time. Best movie that make you deep cry.

Most saddest moment of the dark knight trilogy is the ending scene of dark knight rises

I lovev bat
