Re: Your saddest movie...

I recently saw the movie Love Story on television.  That movie made me cry, and I don't usually cry when watching a movie.  It was a beautiful story.

 The saddest movie I ever saw was Beaches.  Great story of what it means to be a best friend.  LOVE IT!

When it comes to sad movies there's Old Yeller and then there's everything else.

Re: Your saddest movie...

My Boy Jack  I bawled through the entire second half of this film.  No lie.

 

 

Toy Story 3  This is what happens when you don't play with your toys because you're a grownup!!  Sad :smileysad:

 

 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1     I started crying at the beginning when Hermione says "Obliviate" and she disappears from all her family pictures, like she never existed.  So sad.

I just watched 50/50 for the 3rd or 4th time.  Right before the main character goes into surgery when he calls out for his mother, gets me every time.

Les Miserables, which came out at Christmas.

 

I was crying hopelessly when Fantine sang "I had a Dream", when Marius sings "Empty tables, Empty Chairs.

 

And of course, when Valjean sings "Let Him Live."

 

They should sell boxes of tissues at the popcorn stand.

I too cried when Anne Hathaway sang "I have a Dream". She gave such emotion in her performance, didn't she?

Re: Your saddest movie...

My top tear jerkers:  The Color Purple and The Green Mile. When men sob in a movie, you know it's powerful. I do remember seeing Little Women in the 90s and the man sitting behing me (one of two in the theatre) sobbing and gasping after Beth died when the housekeeper was dropping rose petals around the room.

Re: Your saddest movie...

Yes, an outstandingly sad movie is when men cry like babies. My father, who NEVER cries, nowhere, no way, no how... was sobbing at "I had a Dream"... I couldnt' believe it was him...

runny nose, blurry eyes.... not a pretty sight.

 

The sight of my 80-year-old father bawling, open-mouthed, shocked me so much, I stopped crying.  Just to stare at him.

When it comes to sad movies, there are two categories:

 

  1. Old Yeller
  2. Everything else.

Re: Your saddest movie...

I have to agree with Melissa; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. There are quite a few places Ican be seen crying my eyes out.

There are a lot of movies that get you all chocked up!

Anne Frank - Classroom Edition
