Up Up Product Image

Oh my gosh. When his wife died it was sad enough, but the fact that he was the only one who was at her funeral, breaks my heart.

Seriously, like I could cry every time I watched it. The songs just clicked in every scenes and makes my eyes all teary. Enjoyed every bits of it.

I just don't have words to explain this movie! Whenever I think about this film tears just roll down my eyes. A movie full of such beautiful and sad emotions I have never seen before... I can just say guys that please go watch this film. It's a really good movie

When I Was eight years old I cried while watching the movie.

Inside Out Inside Out Product Image

Oh my god. Where do I start? :

There are 5 emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. After Sadness touched Riley's memories, Joy and Sadness went up a tune with the core memories that form 5 islands: Goofball, Friendship, Hokey, Honest, and Family Island. With the core memories, Joy and Sadness try to get back to the emotion tower thingie, but they stop into Riley's imaginary friend, Bing Bong. So the 3 of them come together to get back to be focusing on Riley. Riley was always in a bad mood because Fear, Disgust and Anger were in charge of her emotions. Anyways, back to the three musketeers. Four islands crash (because of the other 3 in the tower thing), there was a lot of crying in it because of the memories, and then, so close, Joy tries to get back on time, but no. She fell down in the dungeon, followed by Bing Bong, where all the forgotten memories are. Joy cries because she misses all the forgotten memories Riley had. Then she had an idea. She decides to get back ...more

I don't know how the hell did up make it to the top, inside out for once addressed real problem that kids and adult have everyday,riley try to be strong for her parent so she act angry instead of facing the sadness of moving away and leaving behind her entire life, she acted out by running away, thank god that fell through, and then when she broke down in front of her parent, it reveal the ugly truth about the society today, adult are so busy with their own lives that they neglect or in riley's case, her parents demand too much of her, with dad's new job there's no time for riley to tell how she really feel and that leave the children confused, not being able to express their feeling they act out and the movie also tell the hard truth, as you grow older sadness will be the thing to be expected the most and you must have the courage to face your sadness not bottle it up or put a smiley face on it, and not let anyone deprive you from telling how you feel, that is what is missing from ...more

Holy... I was physically sobbing at the end of the movie. Won't spoil it but this is the most touching of any Pixar movies

I think I am gonna cry at some parts in the movie! This movie sure is gonna have a lesson in it:Don't hold back your emotions. And I believe its going to show it perfectly. When I was watching some trailers I relize how meaningful it was. It some parts of trailers, you can see that things are happy and colorful, but in other trailers, you can see that the place in Riley's mind is gray and depressing..Gosh the feels..

Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 Product Image

I feel as thought the meaning of this entire movie is growing up and moving on. Also, the meaning of true friendship. The incinerator scene gets me every time. I mean they link hands and close their eyes, accepting the fact that not only they are going to die together living their last seconds as friends but the fact that they had a fulfilled "toy" life with Andy which makes this scene even more sad and mournful. The ending scene where Andy drops off the toys with Bonnie making the wise decision to let these beloved toys live on is also a part that gets me. Especially the part where he plays with all of them one last time before leaving to college definitely will tug at your heartstrings. Even at the very end when he's driving away (Andy) and Woody says "so long partner" without crying or seeming jealous or anything like that, just accepting it is a lot to handle. This movie is very very good but is one you will need a box of tissues with you.

The whole idea of the Toy Story movies was finding friendship with each other while also being there for not only for the other toys but for Andy. These Toys were Andy's life long friends who would do anything and go to great lengths to be with him. The scene where they are in the trash burner and realize there is no way out and see that this is the end. They all grab hands for what they think is one last time and that made me ball up thinking about all the adventures and good times they went through and this was the end. If that didn't make you cry they then get saved and get back to Andy, then Andy makes a decision and sees someone that would enjoy and make more use out of his toys because he feels as if he has neglected them for too long, he gives up his life long friends. When Andy starts pulling out the toys and sees woody at the bottom of the box is the most heart breaking thing I've ever seen, it takes him a second to look at his very best friend and makes his final decision. ...more

This movie is really teach you a lesson. Value of Family, moving on in life and start a new life. This movie made you cry...no matter how old you are. This movie is the best.
Childhood to adult hood

The ending of this film really is something. A perfect way to end the trilogy with two scenes that made me cry. I was even crying 20 minutes afterwards. It makes you realise how much you miss all the toys you had when you were a child and appreciate the people you have now. A genuine masterpiece.

Wall-E Wall-E Product Image

When WALL-E ignores EVE but comes back to life makes this THE Pixar movie.

Oh come on! Wall-e is totally sadder than toy story!

This is not too sad, but the romance between WALL-E and Eve is so heartwarming :')

When Wall-E dies, I bawled my eyes out like cry-baby.

Finding Nemo Finding Nemo Product Image

How is Monsters, Inc. sadder than Finding Nemo? Um, I don't remember a mother and her 399 children DYING in Monsters, Inc...

I have no words to express the beauty of this film. It's heartbreaking and amazing, and I bawled almost the whole time. Of course, I found Up to be much more sad, but I felt that Finding Nemo deserved a little more credit. The lines about how "Daddy's got you, it's okay"...and the goodbye at the end, all combined with the brilliant score from Thomas Newman...it's just fantastic.

Finding Nemo is a really beautiful movie. I love see to Nemo and his father finding him and making everything for find her son.

It was just devastating...

Monsters, Inc. Monsters, Inc. Product Image

Sully has to leave Boo and Boo thinks right after he leaves he will be right outside her door

It was sad he had to say bye to the girl at the end

It was an emotional ending and also the fact that Boo had to learn a life lesson at her young age that sometimes "Bye" means forever through example was a tearjerker.

It had the most emotional ending

Coco Coco Product Image

Not necessarily depressing, but Miguel's feeling trapped and unable to pursue his dreams, Hector's motives for getting his photo put back, and the idea of being forgotten had me pretty much tearing up. This movie is full of emotion. 20/10, would feels again

I tried so hard not to cry. If my dad wasn't with me, I would of balled my eyes out. Probably one of the first movies in a while to make me cry hard.

This made me cry! And what are Big Hero 6, Rio, and What's Up Balloon to the Rescue doing here?

It is so sad that I had to punch a wall to feel manly again

The Good Dinosaur The Good Dinosaur Product Image

Sad, but totally inaccurate, it's a very emotional movie, but it's so unrealistic, too fiction, the comet misses Earth when it should HIT! That's the first thing that led to the extinction, if this movie were real, then we would still have dinosaurs today, lots of fiction movies have realism, but this one doesn't.

"I cried at the end of the story

"This movie is so emotional

"Two best friends break up and it made me cry

This one is so sad at the end. When they have to leave each other. Really good story though.

I watched this movie twice and still cried

Toy Story 2 Toy Story 2 Product Image

Jessie's memory is so sad the song breaks my heart :-(

Overall this movie really isn't that sad except for arguably one of the saddest scenes in cinema history-Emily abandoning Jessie

When She Loved Me is as good a reason as Married Life from Up to be "up" in the top spots.

Jessie's backstory accompanied with "When She Loved Me" made for a very melancholy part in the movie

Toy Story 4

This is the saddest Pixar movie so far in my opinion. I was born basically the same time Toy Story came out. I've grown up knowing these characters my whole life, I felt like I could relate to Andy, especially going to college, that's why Toy Story 3 was the saddest to me for the longest time before Toy Story 4 came out. The reason why this is the saddest to me is because even though Andy had left, still Woody and Buzz were still together. They were there for each other from the beginning, through the thick and thin, and through my whole life. To see them go on their separate ways, knowing they'd probably never see each other again just killed me man. Knowing that Woody and Buzz are going on their separate ways now, and knowing that this is probably the last Toy Story movie that will be made, I felt like the last lingering part of my childhood has faded away with them. 20+ years (my whole life) in the making leading up to this very ending, I don't see how this could ever be beat for ...more

Guys, please go see this movie, and you'll understand

I won’t mention any spoilers but I related more to woody and I cried through out the film.

It's not even out yet.

Brave made me cry! Especially when her mom was about to become a bear for eternity! :'(

I felt this movie on a spiritual level. It was so sad.

This is the only Pixar movie I haven't seen, I'm gonna rent it soon.

What made me cry is this deceitful awful movie in Pixar garmets

Monsters University Monsters University Product Image

I saw this in the cinema 3 times and cried every single time.

It's kind of sad, Toy Story 2 is more sad than this, though.

I love this film but how is it sad?

Glad to see someone else who didn't think this was a bad movie at all. - Phillip873

Cars Cars Product Image

How is this movie even sad?!

I don't understand why people don't think this film is sad - Doc's story was one of the most upsetting moments in Pixar film history.

It's sad in some scenes. I don't understand why some say it isn't a sad film.

This is NOT a sad movie, but maybe ALMOST sad.

Big Hero 6 Big Hero 6 Product Image

This is not a Pixar movie. It may be in CGI, but Disney's main animation studio has been animating in CGI since the mid-2000s. It's still pretty sad, though.

Move this higher, PLEASE! This movie had not one, but TWO sad deaths (though one is resolved).

Look it up! It is made by Disney-Pixar! It's also a really sweet movie, and it was one of their best!

I think this movie is SO SAD! Any body who thinks this movie isn't sad has no feelings!

Finding Dory Finding Dory Product Image

(This movie reminds me of myself, which doubles for the sadness for me). Her parents try to act all encouraging to Dory because they don't want her to think she's a mistake because of her disorder(? ) but they're still scared for her. They think she can't go out on her own. And at the part where Dory thinks they're dead, it's just depressing. She's scared and confused until she can't remember why. When she finds them, though, pure tears of joy.

It's a happy movie but it made me cry

Poor dory, she got separated from her parents!

SO SAD

Toy Story Toy Story Product Image

Nothing about was sad, except when Buzz finds out he wasn't an actual space ranger. Still isn't that sad, though.

Toy Story is actually sad, When woody admits and specially when buzz finds out he's just a toy. Absolute drama

This is not sad at all, but this movie remembering me about my childhood when I'm try to talking with my toys :')

How is it not sad?

What's Up: Balloon to the Rescue! What's Up: Balloon to the Rescue! Product Image

The fact that this movie exists in the first place is sad

The only thing sad about this movie is that it exists

This movie is sad because of its existence.

Surprised a rip off even showed on this list

Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image

The trailers make me cry!

Sad in some scenes

I cried two weeks straight when lightning McSexyQueen crashed! 😭😭😭😭

The Incredibles The Incredibles Product Image

It's not really sad though, but it was amazing. Makes me wonder till now, when is the 2nd one? Will pixar make it?

It's sad because we have to wait so long for the sequel

This isn't really a sad movie, but its an EXTREMELY DARK one. The first time I watched this when I saw the scene where Bob realizes that syndrome had been systematically killing off supers I was too young to really understand what it meant. Syndrome literally committed Genocide

This one was only touching, not really sad... It showed family love and I thought that it was a very unique and sweet movie, but not that sad.

How is this sad...an animal is cooking

Rio Rio Product Image

This is by Blue Sky Studios and not Pixar.

su sod

For one, Rio wasn't really sad. Second, RIO IS BLUE SKY STUDIOS NOT PIXAR AAA! AWWHOOO! AAWWHHHO!
AOO! I'M RONALD REAGAN! HARGARGARGARGARGAR

Incredibles 2

I guess this is the least sad Pixar movie

Cars 2 Cars 2 Product Image

All in all Cars 2 is the least emotional movie in terms of Pixar. There aren't many emotional moments at all and the ones that exist aren't easy to relate to seeing as the movie itself feels slightly rushed. Again though, I like it

I can't see whats so sad about this

This movie is sad, its sad pixar must claim making it

The only one scene that is really sad in this movie is that Rod Torque Redline (the american spy agent) got attacked and then being tortured to death. This is for kids right?
