Top Ten Saddest Movies

The Top Ten
1 Schindler's List Schindler's List Product Image

This has to be the saddest movie ever. Yes Titanic had death it had cholden dieing but look at this. Look at this: Hundreds of thousands of children being taken away and gassed in a tank with no escape and not knowing what's going on. Children on the Titanic eventually easily found out and wouldn't been shot if they moved but In schindler's list children get so just for ttying to run.

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

This film wrecked me. A film has never made me cry aside from perhaps a single tear, but Schindler's List is the sole exception. I didn't cry during the film, I actually felt strangely emotionally distant throughout it. It wasn't until the film ended that the emotional weight of what I'd just seen hit me like a sledgehammer.
I sobbed - not just cried, SOBBED - for a full 15 minutes and wasn't able to stop. I couldn't believe it. I'd never had such an extreme reaction to any medium of storytelling ever, and I haven't since.
Even now, just hearing the film's main score is enough for me to feel a heavy lump in my throat.

For one of the most inappropriate and darkest movies ever made - it is mandatory viewing for anyone and everyone at the age of 15 and beyond. So beautifully made and powerful that it brings some of the most brave and iron people to tears. It's ending scene where Oskar breaks down outside his factory with all the jews he saves because he could have saved ten - two - or even just one more. How a man famed in money and power with a soft spot could turn into the greatest war hero. Cinema has made me cry twice in my life. This is one.

2 Titanic Titanic Product Image

It is the most amazing movie I have ever seen. I watched this movie for the first time when I was 8 and I am 14 now. I have never seen a better movie. it is by far my favorite movie.yes it is a long movie but the 3 hours and 14 minutes is completely worth it. there is a high chance you will cry, which is a good thing to get out. This movie is a heartbreaking romantic drama which is definitely worth the watch. I think I have seen this movie at least 300 times and I'm not overreacting, I still haven't gotten over how good it is. I highly recommend this classic film. it will not disappoint I guarantee that.

This movie was amazing. The plot alone, not even including the detailed sets and historical accuracy (which were amazing too), was so heart wrenching and beautiful. It showed how two people went against all odds to find each other, despite their class differences, and find a way to love each other even when it was forbidden. They went through so much together in such a short time, and just when you think Jack and Rose have survived all their obstacles, BA BAM. You were wrong. He dies. Especially when they started playing that song in the end... My Heart Will Go On... And how Rose ended up doing exactly as Jack made her promise to do and live her life peacefully and live to her hundreds.. My God. What a beautiful tragedy.

It's not just the love story that made it tragic. It's the entire thing. The mother, putting her two children to sleep; the old couple, who simply just lay beside each other; a woman, dead, baby in her arms; the musicians playing... all these as they gave up their chance for survival, because it is slim to none. It's so, so sad. And, of course, Rose and Jack. When Rose saw the boat and turned to Jack, only to find him dead. I cannot forget when she finally realized that she had no choice but to let go of Jack's body in the water. God, I cried for one whole hour. Note: I don't cry easily. Such a tragic movie. To those who haven't watched it, you're missing out your life. 12/10 stars.

Titanic is by far the best movie I've ever seen in my whole entire life. It's literally my favorite. It truly shows what real love is and how far you will go for the person you love. This movie is an incredible romance, both of the actors did an amazing job in making this movie the masterpiece it is. I've watched this over 100 times and that's not even an exaggeration, you really never get tired of it. Each and every time I've watched it I've cried, and I'm not even that type of person. There's a reason this movie is the first one that comes up when you Google "saddest movie ever" or "movies that make you cry". If you're looking for a romance, a thriller, and a tragedy all in one, and something that'll stick with you your whole life, I think you'll really really like Titanic.

3 The Green Mile The Green Mile Product Image

My wife and I were both bawling for at LEAST half of this film. I have been an avid fan of Stephen King since 1995...his books, mostly. As far as film is concerned 'The Green Mile' and 'Stand By Me', (the latter of which was adapted from King's novella ',The Body'), are the only on-screen adaptations of King's work that I love just as much as the books themselves. The Green Mile is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story and film. I don't watch it very often because of the extreme effect it has on me and my wife refuses to watch it again, though boting it as one of the best films she has ever seen. AMAZING movie and story. But damn is it hearbreaking? I'll tell the world...

This movie is one of Tom Hanks' greatest movies and is Michael Clarke Duncan's greatest movie he ever acted in. The story is amazing, though I wouldn't have expected any less from Stephen King, and the acting was phenomenal. Doug Hutchison's portrayal of Percy Wetmore is a perfect representation of the character in the book and is also the perfect example of how to play a character that the viewer, once he's introduced, wants to punch in the face after every word he speaks. Tom Hanks' portrayal of Paul Edgecomb is flawless, and Michael Clarke Duncan's portrayal of John Coffey was a work of art, the best of his career. 10/10 movie.

I saw this a few years back in high school, accidentally. It changed my life. That day I became a filmmaker and I've been studying film ever since. I never knew a story could be told in that way. I remember after seeing the film I didn't watch T.V. for over a week, because it was so engrained in my mind.

And Tom Hanks who along with Denzel is the finest actor of our generation, I will always commend him for this film, because he didn't take the spotlight away from Michael Clark Duncan.

How powerful story can be. May we never forget that.

Nothing more sad than seeing a character that is so innocent and perfect meeting his end due to the injustice and evil of mankind. It is magnified massively by the fact all the guards taking part in the execution know he is innocent and dying for something so despicable that he would never, ever do. At least in Titanic the damsel was saved. In this movie it was just a big build up to devastating loss. Amazing, powerful film, but also massively sad!.

4 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Product Image

I don't care how historically inaccurate this film is. The Aunt's funeral already had me tearing up! I was bawling for 20 minutes straight, and I mean WALING with sorrow. And keep in mind, I'm not the type of person to cry too much due to sad movies. Titanic, Old Yeller, Bambi, ALL the classic examples of sad films, no water works, but THIS movie... There's really no reason to go back to this movie after you know the twist, but if there's any reason to watch it, it's to give yourself a good kick in the emotional crotch.

Oh my god I was so naive watching this.I'm only young so forgive me. I thought that they were forced to shower with eachother at the end and that the naked kids showering with the adults was the reason for the grim ending. Then I remembered the smoke! Damn I cried,

!...I cried all the way through the film and it is just very depressing when the old prisoner spills the wine and he gets beat up by the Nazi soldier.
And it just makes me think why were they treated like this just because of their religion.
But when Bruno goes into thew gas chamber thinking that they are just taking a shower.
I just was bouncing up and down trying to tell them to get out of there...
I think this film has to be one of the saddest films ever...

This movie broke me. I've watched documentaries on the holocaust since I was 12 years old, complete with the body pits, starving children, and executions. But this movie broke me in a way none of those did. The character of Elsa was what brought it home for me. She was oblivious at first, then, horrified at what was happening, she tried to convince her husband to stop. Her wails of grief over Bruno's abandoned clothing will forever be in my memory.

5 Forrest Gump Forrest Gump Product Image

"Life is like a box of chocolates. You'll never know whatcha gonna get." "Stupid is as stupid does." I am crying like crazy. Forrest is born without good legs, bullied, isn't smart, loses Jenny on multiple occasions, lost his best friend, Bubba, loses his mom, then loses Jenny weeks after marriage. And the little letter writen by Forrest Jr. And they had to add the birds flying away in the final scenes. Writing that last line actually choked me up.

The end where he stands over Jenny's grave and breaks down is extremely sad. But also his best good friend Bubba dies, his mom (whom he adores) dies and then of course there's the part where he meets his son which is very emotional. Forrest Gump is the greatest movie of all time.

The saddest movie ever. This movie will made anyone cry and really think about their personal lives and relationships in the past and in the future. This move is a life changer that will effect everyone.

This movie had sent me on a roller coaster. I have never felt so much joy for a character and felt so much pity at the same time. I bawl every time I watch the movie. Greatest movie of all time.

6 Marley and Me Marley and Me Product Image

This and Old Yeller are the saddest dog movies. Since Old Yeller is Disney, this is the saddest non-Disney dog movie. Old Yeller should be right next to this though. This and Old Yeller are even sadder than Up.

I had a yellow lab named Andy once. He was hit by a car and I never got to say goodbye. I had a black lab named Luke after that and we had him put to sleep. I wasn't there but I hug him, sobbing, saying I loved him so much before my mom drove off with him trying his hardest to look out the trunk's window. Every time I see Marley die, I see both Luke and Andy dying at the same time. Need I say more; I break down, screaming in tears every time I see that one close up shot of him shutting his soft, little eyes one lat time.

It seems like such a light funny movie, which it is, but it is also an very emotional story that includes love and loss. I am easy to cry in movies, but not sob. Usually silent tears streaming down my cheeks. As soon as things weren't looking good for Marley, I was gone. And the sobbing did not stop until like a half hour after the movie was done (at least). The same happened for the book (from which I read first). And much to my surprise, writing about this, I am now crying. It's just so sad :'(

At first I was happy in this movie but when Marley ran away and they announced Marley was dead I started to cry my eyes out. Marley was the cutest dog ever. I cried when I went to bed I cried in my sleep I cried in the morning and evening and any time of day because of the death of the poor dog. I'm very easy to make cry. In Ariel I was scared for the dog when the Prince was saving him not for the Prince. That shows my love for dogs. Although I also get sad when humans die.

7 Up Up Product Image

I love this one, but I think that it should be Old Yeller for the saddest Disney movie. This could be the saddest Pixar movie though. Then again, Toy Story 3 rivals it as well.

"Up" builds up the strongest, most simply wonderful love story ever crafted in less than five minutes. The love story of Carl and Ellie highlighting the ups and downs of life being out raw emotion from the audience. At the end when Carl goes through the Adventure Book and finds Ellie put their life adventure in the back just brings the sadness full circle. This movie doesn't get the recognition it deserves on this list because it's an animated film, but "Up" and "Toy Story 3" prove that animated films sometimes mean more than any other life action one could ever dream of.

Never thought that an animation movie can actually make me cry until up was appered... the story of it makes the heart aches from the inside out... it's a very wonderful movie that is full of feelings and emotions that was actually hard to feel in an animated made movie... love how they loved each other and how he wanted to make her dream come true and how she already made him as her new dream befor her death

It's strange to see a movie that makes you cry at the beginning and at the end, But at the same time I find myself laughing and enjoying it the entire time. Unlike most movies it doesn't focus on the sad parts, it doesn't build up the sadness to make us cry, it builds up the sadness to make the message and the adventure all the more enjoyable.

Honestly I didn't cry during this at all, but when I watch monsters inc I ball my eyes out.

8 Requiem for a Dream Requiem for a Dream Product Image

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!

This movie is so depressing it made me feel sick for a week. It follow each character to unimaginable lows. The only reason this movie is not number one is because most people have never seen it. I don't blame them. Just the thought of this movie puts me in a bad place.

This movie legitimately depressed me. Saddest movie I've ever seen because out doesn't end in love, or even death. Death would make this movie happier. Every time I watch this movie I become sad the second I begin it. Beautifully story of addiction and family.

It is a very good movie but it will make you cry and you will be depressed for days after. for around 2 weeks this was all I could think of. This might even be too sad for it to even be enjoyable for some people. I could never watch this movie ever again. It has really disturbed me.

9 Old Yeller Old Yeller Product Image

I think for Disney, this should be the saddest Disney movie. The reason it's sadder than Toy Story 3 and Up is because of the ending. You know what happens if you've seen the movie, or even heard of it. Other people have said it so I shouldn't have to say it.

I remember I saw this movie when I was a kid and I ran to my room and bawled. I was depressed the next day too. It's also the first time a movie made me cry. I read the book later on at school and cried. RIP old yeller

The ending is just so sad. can't be topped. I'll give titanic props for being almost if not just as sad, but I love dogs. and I grew extremely attached to Yeller by the end. I could also hardly sit through this movie without getting misty-eyed.

Always will be one of my favorite movies ever. It's definitely a tear jerker, if you've ever had a dog, you'll understand. They are family just as much as any person

10 The Notebook The Notebook Product Image

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.

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!

I don't remember EVER crying so much for a movie. I watched it with a friend when we were both exhausted and even after the movie was over we had a half-hour long meltdown and cried our eyes out about everything that was wrong in life. It was ridiculous, I didn't even know my tear ducts could be so performant. So many feels

As a man I can honestly say that the first time that I saw this movie I shed several tears. A few years later I watched it again and cried again. Now in 2014 I watched it with a girl-friend who had never seen that movie and he cried too. Only words I could say were: "It still hurts even after all this time.."

The Contenders
11 Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan Product Image

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.

Seeing this movie should be a prerequisite to becoming an American citizen, graduating High School. It's really too good for words and shows what Americans can accomplish when United in the cause of defeating true evil. Sadly if your over 30 years old you realize how the younger generation of today's Starbucks sipping, green haired transgendered I'm owed everything because I breathe air and woke up today doesn't understand or care much about American history and what it took to secure their rights to crap on the flag or kneel for the national anthem. It'll make even the stinkiest of turds feel grateful for what they have and shed a tear or two rusting out their nose earrings. It's really a million stars outta 5.

I once knew a said Private Ryan. He was a paratrooper in WWII and he might have actually dropped over Normandy I don't exactly remember. This movie always makes me think of him and I feel gloomy, but the saddest scene for me is when Vin Diesel's character is helplessly laying down in the rain, and he isn't sure if he's about to die or not, but just in case he makes sure the others give his dad his letter.

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!

12 Million Dollar Baby Million Dollar Baby Product Image

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, silence...it 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.

I never initially thought this movie would be interesting. I perceived it was just a movie about "boxing". I was bored one day, and it came on. I started kind of half heartedly watching it. Needless to say, by the end, I was bawling like a baby. Simple one of the BEST movies I have ever seen, along with one of the most heart breaking. A must see!

13 The Fox and the Hound The Fox and the Hound Product Image

The sad song is my favorite song: Goodbye May Seem Forever. My favorite song and my favorite film! I'm not joking you, it actually is my very favorite song now. For years, it was Once Upon a Time in New York City from Oliver & Company. Also, about the song. It's the song from the scene where Tod (the fox) is left in the woods. The old woman (Widow Tweed) left him there to protect him from the hunter (Amos Slade). The message of this song is perhaps the best thing about the whole movie. Even when we can't be with the people we care about, we never have to forget them. It's a message that almost everyone needs to know, because we all have those times in life when friends or loved ones die, or we just can't be with people anymore. Over the years I've lost some many things, so more and more I remember these words whenever I lose something or someone important.

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.

I agee, the saddest part is were she puts him in the forrest..
So emotional, really really sad. But he becomes very friendly with the other animals wich makes me so happy!

14 Bambi Bambi Product Image

My second favorite Disney movie next to The Fox and the Hound. Also my former favorite. It was my childhood along with One Hundred and One Dalmatians (my first former favorite by the way).

Mom gets shot in front of him as a toddler! Forrest fire kills all wild life! Bambis dad gets shot in front of him as an adolescent! He and his mom almost starve to death during the winter! What worse could happen to perhaps the most innocent being on the planet?
Indeed, brings rivers of tears to even huntsmen and mercenaries.

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.

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

15 Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 Product Image

Again, I love this one, but I wouldn't put it AFTER Old Yeller on the saddest. I would put Old Yeller on the saddest for the saddest Disney movie. But this one of the saddest sequels though. Possibly the saddest Disney sequel, at least for Pixar.

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.

I'm not one to cry over movies, in fact I've only cried once and almost broke out in tears in two other movies. This was one of those times. The part I almost cried was when the toys were holding hands in the dumpster, just waiting to die. This was emotional for me, because I grew up with these characters as a kid. To watch them die would have been devastating.

16 Life Is Beautiful Life Is Beautiful Product Image

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.

Reading these comments made me cry again. By a mile the saddest movie I've ever seen. The second time I watched it I had to pause it because I was crying to much I couldn't breathe. But not only the saddest movie ever for me it is also the greatest love story of all time, with both his love for his son and for his wife.

If we weren't in class while watching it, I would have been bawling and tears would have been flowing like rain. But I did watch it in class, so only a few tears happened.

Joshua's (I forgot his original name- we watched it with subtitles) face when he sees the tank. He is just so full of wonder, and joy, and I just can't.

When my father first showed me this film, I was 11 years old, and not 30 seconds earlier, he had just shown me the film Stand by Me. It was the very first movie that made me cry that was not named The Iron Giant or Up. To this day, Life is Beautiful remains one of the greatest films I have ever seen.

17 I Am Legend I Am Legend Product Image

I think the saddest part was when I found out Will Smith's character never lived, and the part that the dog dies. It is such a great movie. It should be in the top 10.

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

Such pain and such hope in one person. Robert Neville loneliness and compassion can buoy any of us through the roughest of times. When Anna and Ethan show up, the following morning defines bittersweet as they attempt to form a family on the fly, yet the doom that follows crushes the soul. Anna, though, picking up the heroic baton,soothes the conscience in the end. Her monologue still haunts...

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

18 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Product Image

I see this one every now and then with grandma. Very good and sad. Funny that it's before Bambi though. Also, shouldn't The Lion King be higher? I would say that The Lion King is as sad as Bambi, for the same reason. You should know why.

This was the first film I ever watched as a six year od and the saddest movie in the world! I did not go to a concert for it because they were also showing a movie. this was the on;y list on this besides top ten actors that is accurate! BUT this should be #1!

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

Never understood why people found this sad, I find it a terribly ordinary film which did not affect me in any way.

19 The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

Very close to my favorite Disney movie. Not quite the saddest one though. For all Disney movies, I would be inclined to believe that it's Old Yeller that's the saddest. For animated, this is among them, but we can't forget my favorite: The Fox and the Hound. There's a few more animated movies and Disney movies such as Charlotte's Web and The Hunchback of Notre Dame that rival this one.

I'm Shocked! Why isn't this up top it is very suitable and of course it could make anyone cry at that moment where Mufasa dies I was sad but I couldn't handle it so I cried it's a very dedicated movie to create I hope your happy! I hope you vote for this!

The moment when Musafa falls into the buffalos and dies is easily the saddest film moment ever. Seeing Simba looking for his Father brought tears to my eyes like no other film before, only scene that rivals this is Jack's death in Titanic.

There's no way this can be so far down on the list. This movie is KNOWN for being a classic, and a sad one at that! Sometimes we forget about the classics, but this movie really deserves much more.

20 Dumbo Dumbo Product Image

I voted in reverse order. So this is before The Lion King on the list, but I voted for The Lion King first. Again, one of my very favorites. Next will be my all time favorite: The Fox and the Hound.

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 :(

This movie should be way higher up on the list. Yes, Titanic is sad too, but it's more of an outrage that Rose didn't simply move her giant ass off that door to share it with Jack.
On the other hand, the image/ idea of a sweet little baby elephant visiting his imprisoned mum, it just... It does my head in and sends me into emotional meltdown.

Even just thinking about this movie completely wrecks me within seconds and reduces me to a teary, mucusy mess. It's so hard to sing "Baby of Mine" to my bub without getting chocked up but she seems to love that song.

21 My Girl My Girl Product Image

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 is an amazing movie. The fact that he cared enough to get the ring. It is truly heart breaking. I watched it over and over again and every time it gets me depressed for the rest of the day. I love this movie but every time I feel my heart ripping into shreds as someone is stomping on it. (If that makes since)

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

I almost forgot to submit this. I already submitted it to the Best Movies list, so refer to that comment. It's a very sad story, but beautiful. Again, refer to my other comment on Best Movies for more.

My parents, my sister and I saw this movie in theaters the year that both of my grandpas died, without knowing how serious it was going to get from the middle on. We were all crying in the theater, one of those moments I wont forget. UP is definitely a sad movie too

Wow this movie is great. Just thinking about it makes me sad and I'm a guy. It also makes you reflect on how you act and makes you try to be a nicer person. Well done Adam Sandler.

I wasn't even close to shedding a tear when I watched The Fault in our Stars, or even Titanic. However, I was sobbing at this movie. I had to lock myself into the bathroom and sob.

Surprisingly sad. Surprisingly good. Love Adam for his stupid comedies, they're all good, but he'll pluck your heart strings especially with the father son relationship.
