Has a movie ever made you cry?

Aug. 20, 2012by:

There is a video making its way around the internet featuring two preteen boys reacting to the ending of Disney's THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN. Granted, the video has spoilers related to the ending of the movie, but I am sure you can probably deduce what happens that would make them break down like this.

Check out the video.

Seeing these two kids react like this with create two types of people: those that call the kids a pair of pussies and those that can relate to having a movie affect them in such an emotional way. After watching these kids, it made me think back to the movies that made me cry when I was a kid. I think the first movie that made me break into tears was E.T. I remember seeing them try to resuscitate E.T. while Elliot screamed for the doctors to stop killing him. Gets me every time. Or it could have been THE NEVERENDING STORY when Atreyu is begging Artax to make it out of the Swamp of Sadness. F**king brutal scene.

The power of a good movie is when it can provoke an emotional reaction out of the viewer. As I got older and had kids, movies like CHILDREN OF MEN struck me more. Imagining a world without children was unbearable to me. MARLEY & ME got me good too, even though I am not really a dog person. Even last year's NEVER LET ME GO really hit me hard.

I have not seen THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN yet, but this video actually made me want to see it more. I love that these kids felt an emotional connection to the movie. It shows that not everything has to be a soulless, CGI filled spectacle. There can still be a world where movies make you feel something deeply.

There are plenty...

But one that I didn't see anyone post about is the film Love Actually... In particular the story focusing on Alan Rickman and his wife when she goes to her bedroom to hide her emotions after receiving a CD instead of the jewelry that was given to someone else...

The Second being Colin FIrth's confession of love at the end of the movie... I know this is a chick flick, but its a damned good one. Or maybe I am a hopeless romantic because movies made me that way, but that is hands down one of

The other scene that gets me is Liam Neeson giving his wife's eulogy. Especially considering the passing of his wife in real life.

only 3 films have ever make me cry, the first was the Korean film Tae Guk Gi: the Brotherhood of War, that ending made me lose my shit big time, i was sobbing like baby. the second was Children of Men, the scene where they're walking out with the baby and everything stops, i didnt even realize i was crying at first. And of course Up, if that first 15 mins doesnt bring out some type of emotion in you, you might be a robot.

Star Wars...

The Empire Strikes Back, realizing that Yoda dies...that's some sad shit. Marley and Me was sad too. And that line "No my friends, you bow to mo man" and the King bows...chokes me up!

Big Fish

The ending when he is rushed to the sea and everybody is there...gets me all the time, just beautiful!
Also the ending of Warrior.
There are some movies where I get wet eyes, like X2 (Jean sacrifising herself), TDKR (Alfred crying) or Wall-E (nealy everytime Wall-E says EVA ^^), but I shed some tears watching these two movies...

Definitely not afraid to admit that I've cried during movies. It doesn't happen often but every now and then something just really hits me. Requiem for a Dream is one that definitely makes me cry every time I see it. The ending is just so sad and powerful. I literally feel devastated at the end of that movie. Its one of my favorites but I can only stand watching it once in awhile because of that reason. Vanilla Sky also brings on the tears but for different reasons. That movie is so beautiful

Its one of my favorites but I can only stand watching it once in awhile because of that reason. Vanilla Sky also brings on the tears but for different reasons. That movie is so beautiful and makes me appreciate life. Magnolia (something about Tom Cruise) is another that brings me to tears. Although I could mention many parts of that movie (Earl's regret monologue, William H macy's I have so much love to give speech) the one part that gets me every time is Tom Cruise at his father's death bed. Up until that point we are made to hate Cruise's character and think he is some kind of insensitive monster than this scene hits. In just a few minutes we witness that character go through a total transformation. Cruise's performance is just incredible. You can literally see the layers of his character peeling away before he finally breaks down calling his estranged father an asshole and then begging him not to die. Simply heartbreaking.

In light of the recent news about Tony Scott I would also add his amazing movie Man on Fire to this list. The end scene with a dying Creazy watching as Pita gets away is heartbreaking. Its something about the mixture of music, image and that almost happy smile that Denzel gives knowing that he finally did something good in saving this little girl. It all comes together so brilliantly. This scene (along with all the others i mentioned) really showed me the power that film has. They all helped me to realize that making films is what I want to do with my life. If I can touch just one person with my films the same way these have touched me, then I will feel accomplished.

As for recent movies I have to admit to getting alittle choked up during TDKR. Not an overly sad movie but the scenes with Alfred really hit me for some reason. The scene when he tells Bruce that he doesn't want to see anything bad happen to him is wonderfully acted by Caine. His speech about loving Bruce since the first time he heard his screams echo through the halls was heartbreaking. Really shows the relationship between these two characters, made Alfred leaving so much more powerful.

Depending on my mood, the oddest of movies can make me cry

But one film that never ceases to make me cry is Stand By Me. More specifically, the ending.
Gordie: I'll see ya.
Chris: Not if I see you first.
Then they wave and Chris turns to walk away and fades out of the shot as we learn he was stabbed and killed.
That part always destroys me, and I'm sure a lot of it has to do with what actually happened to River Phoenix.

I've never really cried to a movie but especially two movies have made me as near crying without crying you can get:
Chrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback mountain.
..guess Ang Lee really know how to get to me.

Bridge to Terabithia

movies have made me tear up on countless occasions but this is the only movie ive ever seen that makes me full on bawl. Tears and snot and hiccups and everything. Every time ive ever watched it it's had the same effect. The book did the same thing to me when i was 8.

The Lion King was the first.

I'm only including the movies that brought me to actual tears. I can swell up quite often, especially when the score gets going, but I don't always just bawl. Glad to see I'm not alone, though!
Armageddon (Harry's goodbye to AJ and his daughter)
Lonesome Dove (in at least 4 scenes)
Ladder 49
TDKR (Damn you, Alfred!)
Warrior
The Green Mile (probably at least twice)
Cast Away (Wilson)
Saving Private Ryan (you see a Tom Hanks trend here?)
I'll stop now...

Not a movie... but when Sgt. Slaughter was beating the crap out of Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VII and making him bleed... I cried like a little girl. But then as usual, Hogan makes the comeback, wins the match, children everywhere rejoiced.

Yep, another Disney movie. My parents had to take me out of the theater at the end because I was hysterical like those two kids in the video. Disney movies definitely do have a lot of downer moments. Guess they're trying to teach us to suck it up.

I remember crying for The Lion King when i was young.
With The Green Mile, you can probably guess which scene hits hardest.
Toy Story 3 (i'm honored to have grown up with these movies)
and Bruce's "sacrifice" in The Dark Knight Rises strangely enough. Even after watching it 2 times and knowing the movies ending, it still tugs at me because i can imagine that being the way Bruce Wayne/Batman meets his fate (the reason for me being that the sad poeticism of his character permits such an end

I wrote a huge list and none it didn't post, now I'm going to be reaching for the tissues just because of that. (Sad tissues, not happy tissues)
So I will just say, I think the three films that I remember crying a lot in were all mainly documentaries, so I'm not sure if they count... But:
1) Dear Zachary - This film DESTROYED me emotionally
2) Life In A Day - Certain aspects made it very emotional for me
3) The Cove - Just a well put together film that lead to a huge emotional impact on

I would also say Click & Benjamin Button get me every time. I really liked this article/question! Now I'm off to hunt down some of these sad movies and grab a box of tissues.

The Lord of the Rings when Gandalf falls and everyone is bawling.... That gets me, I think it's the music. Thanks Howard Shore. Boromirs death scene. The Two Towers Haldirs death scene.... Again Howard Bloody Shores fault. And the best one is Sam's scene in Return of the King when he says " I can't carry it Mr Frodo..... But I can carry you"...... Ahhh shit just thinking about it gets me.
I think any show/story/ movie that can invoke an emotional response such as the ones I've read here then

Some strange ones.

The Land Before Time - First movie I ever cried during but I was so young I don't remember why.

A.I. - The end when he gets his mother back for one day just to have her die again. There were some tears.

Big Fish - When Edward Bloom is told by his son the story of how he dies on his death bed had me crying like a little girl.

Schindler's List - The end scene where the war is over and he looks at the hundreds of people he saved and breaks down that he couldve done more. He saves over 2000 people and all he can think about is how is watch couldve saved 2 more

Yeah I cried. Wanna fight about it?

SPOILERS, duh:
I cried after Benjamin Button, at the time I was just not in a good emotional place to watch a baby die (even though he wasn't really a baby). I also remember as a kid seeing the movie Baby Boom and I cried when Diane Keaton was giving up the baby (or something, I don't remember it exactly). I also had to fight really hard not to cry during I Am Legend when he had to kill Sam.

I don't know if I can say that I've ever "cried," but there's plenty of films that make me misty eyed. Good Will Hunting has many moments that make me look for the nearest box of tissues. Alfred in TDKR. 50/50 at the end when Seth Rogen and JGL say goodbye as he goes in for surgery. Toy Story 3. The Lion King. The end of Superbad. The end of Clerks 2. The "I have abandoned my child!" scene in There Will Be Blood... so powerful. There's plenty more that I can't think of at the moment, but one

I don't know if I can say that I've ever "cried," but there's plenty of films that make me misty eyed. Good Will Hunting has many moments that make me look for the nearest box of tissues. Alfred in TDKR. 50/50 at the end when Seth Rogen and JGL say goodbye as he goes in for surgery. Toy Story 3. The Lion King. The end of Superbad. The "I have abandoned my child!" scene in There Will Be Blood... so powerful. There's plenty more that I can't think of at the moment, but one T.V. show that always

Not A Movie

It just came to me-It's not a movie, but does anyone remember the video for 'RUNAWAY TRAIN' by Soul Asylum. I cried the first time I saw that, and I was 6 lol

I can't remember the first, but as of recent it's been UP, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, and the end of TDKR when Alfred deliveries his eulogy. SPOILER---- I knew he wasn't dead, but man, I felt the pain

So many responses to this article - just goes to show how powerful movies can be.

I'm not sure what the first film that made me cry was, but boy there are quite a few.

Mary and Max - I spent the whole movie fighting back tears partly because of how genuinely moving it was, but also how happy I was that here was a wonderful film that had got everything right. While charming and beautiful throughout, the movie isnt afraid to offer a real and unflinching perspective, and never once feels
So many responses to this article - just goes to show how powerful movies can be.

I'm not sure what the first film that made me cry was, but boy there are quite a few.

Mary and Max - I spent the whole movie fighting back tears partly because of how genuinely moving it was, but also how happy I was that here was a wonderful film that had got everything right. While charming and beautiful throughout, the movie isnt afraid to offer a real and unflinching perspective, and never once feels preachy or contrived. There are very few movies that can truly be called life-changing this is one of them.

Tangled had me tearing up during the "I See The Light" scene. It was a combination of the lovely song, gorgeous, gorgeous 3D animation, and very subtle and sweet character animation. I think I lost it completely when Flynn produced the two lanterns that he had prepared - one for him, and one for Rapunzel - and set them off into the sky. The scene before that where the King and Queen sadly and silently release the lanterns was very tearjerking too.

Super 8 - any bit where Joe's mother was mentioned made me really sad, and I flat out cried at the bit where Joe watches the home video of his mother with Alice. The end with the pendant may strike some as sappy and unnecessary, but I thought it was a really touching moment and was a great way to close the movie.

Millions. Again, with a boy missing his late mother as the crux of the story (I'm very close to my Mum so that does hit home) I'm not sure that any movie has left me in a bigger emotional mess at the end, ever. It is very hard to find a film where its driving force is good-natured, pure, simple innocence. Everything is cynical, dry or overly-clever.

War Horse had me in tears at the end, many say it was overly mushy or too much "sentimental Spielberg", but the ending was just utterly beautiful; it made everything come together very nicely story-wise, was shot gorgeously by Janusz Kaminski, and the John Williams score just swelled and it made you feel so very gooey inside. After everything Joey and Albert had been through, at last there was your closure.

Hereafter made me tear up, especially the subplot involving the twin brothers. I was watching the film with my brother next to me, and it was impossible not to get broken up about the purity of their brotherly bond, how they had to fend for themselves and how one has to deal with everything when something horrible happens to the other.

More recently, I cried at the end of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The film on the whole wasn't all that great, struggling to blend very dark humour with strands of sentimentality and sweetness, but the ending really did it for me, and Keira Knightley and Steve Carell pulled it off very well.

Schindler's list was the first, it was the scene where Schindler shakes Itzhak Stern's hand.....
And the only other was TDKR when Batman defines a hero to Jim Gordon... it was out happiness though...

Rocky Balboa .....when he talks to Pauly about losing Adrian and wanting to fight again in the warehouse.
Soul Surfer ......when she makes her final surf at the end of the movie.

50/50 (several parts did, but mainly when JGL is starting to break down and the music queues before he's about to go in for surgery), warrior (both nick nolte's Ahab scene and 'About Today' playing during final fight), Super 8 (when the locket opens at the end/music queues), marley and me, tyrannosaur, toy story 3, Up (beginning), and everything must go.

ET is the 1st movie I remember losing it too. Im a pussy though, I cry all the time watching movies. Another heart-breaker is Mel Gibson's We Were Soldiers when the wives go around delivering the death notices to the town. Holy crap that's a tough scene to watch.

Braveheart is my favorite movie of all time and it still gets me everytime
I remember crying at the end of Con Air (hahaha) when he finally meets his daughter and giving her the bunny rabbit
United 93 - I sat up in my dorm room at about 3 am, gritting my teeth and crying in anger... still cant watch it again to this day
Most recently, Marley and Me got me pretty good... a bunch of 22 year old guys sitting in a college house... my friends begged me not to watch it and said please turn it off,

Yes, I actually get choked up pretty easily but only a few films have actually made me cry. Up made me cry like four fucking times. Also really happy scenes sometimes make me cry.

Maybe I'm a pansy.

First movie to make a single tear come down my eye was Jersey Girl, surprised me to, I had been watching films for decades and that was the first that got me to cry. Cried upon my 5th viewing of Magnolia. Finding Nemo and Up got me to tear up as well, though my biggest emotional cry sesh during watching anything was when Michael Scott left The Office, no tv show or movie had ever hit me that hard, I literally cried for like 30 mins. I find that TV shows are more likely to get me to tear up

BENJI: THE HUNTED

So about 15 years ago my mom thought she rented a cute dog movie for my sis and I, holy balls was she wrong! There is this one scene where cute adorable Benji has to decide whether to go back to the owner he loves or stay in the wild and care for some orphaned cougar cubs who's mother was poached ...
Here's the kicker: not all of the cubs make it.
Holy sh*t it was soul crushing. I was 9, it was brutal ... but it is the only movie I have openly wept too.
The entire flick is on Youtube, I

My Dog Skip. I cry so much every time i see the ending. That was literally my dog and me. Also I don't know why but Garden State's ending. As soon as Zach Braff goes into that conversation about Life being an ellipsis and it zooms out I start to tear up. Gladiator as previous people mentioned always gets me. Most def Marley and Me, as well as The Pianist and the whole flashback scene with Leo and his kids in Shutter Island...get chocked up by that every time.

I want to list some movies I haven't seen mentioned yet that made me cry.
Field of Dreams. Every Time.
The Fountain. Jackman's best performance and you feel his pain.
A.I. I didn't cry when I first saw it as a kid, but the next couple times really did me in.
Star Wars Episode 3. I got a bit choked up during the Order 66 scene where the jedi are killed.
Not a movie, but Lost had several character deaths that choked me up as well.

Interesting Tidbit

I used to cry in almost every remotely emotional film. I bawled during The Blind Side, I was beside myself after United 93, etc. turns out it was a symptom of a slowly developing heart condition, because since the surgery, I barely even tear up at the most emotionally manipulative scenes in movies.

It takes ALOT to make me actually cry so I havent found it yet...But there are a few that had me close. The end of "Glory" definitely had me very close to welling up. Oddly enough, so did "Dragonheart". Theres a ton of others that gave me the frog in the throat, but I'm still waiting for that one that will have the waterworks flowing. The wife, on the other hand...we were watching "Avatar"(For god's sake) and she found a reason in it to cry her eyes out...

There is this one scene.

Dumbo swinging on her mother's trunk as she sings to him.
I can think of many other movie scenes, but that one has the most lethal effect on me.
Also, I have to extra man myself up to don't cry with the last words of Little Foot's mother.
Most recently, the first minutes of Up. Yeah, animated movies are serious material.

Sometimes it's not the sad or sentimental movies that get me, it's the ones that make me feel proud or hopeful. To this day, when I watch The Right Stuff and it gets to the part where Chuck Yeager limps burned and scarred from the wreckage of his test plane alone in the high desert, but he's gathered his parachute and is still chewing gum and full of pride, I always tear up a little.

I believe the first one for me was a theatrical re-release of Bambi when I was a kid. Seriously, Disney's early animated stuff was a fucking downer for kids.

Most recently: The first ten minutes of 'Up' had me bawling...

The one that ALWAYS gets me: Braveheart (spoilers)

When Mel offers his head to his dead wife's father and he lets him know he forgives him cuz William Wallace is such ass kicker... I get choked up and misty EVERY TIME!!!

Darabont does something to me. I got choked up with happy tears at the end of Shawshank and The Green Mile made me cry like a little girl. I just watched One Day with my fiancee and I was crying at the end of that, too. Such a shitty ending.

Omg ya.

Too many to mention. But any movie that can trigger that kind of emotional response is a good movie. It means your relating to the characters, which is a good thing.

Most recently The Dark Knight Rises. When Alfred tells Bruce's parents' grave that he's failed them.... all 3 times brought on the waterworks. But the one movie that always gets me is Toy Story 3, specifically the incinerator scene but also the very end gets me ocasionally.

'Warrior' nearly got me in the first 10 minutes. And then again at the finale. Yeah, its that good.

Yes, my eyes did well up with Alfred at the end of TDKR but I held it back.

But the Green Mile, when Hanks tells Barry Pepper to wipe his eyes before standing up upon strapping John Coffey's legs in....FUUUUUUCK.

But going way back, when I was a little kid, the ending to Close Encounters of the Third Kind always turned me into Niagara Falls.

Movies that bring tears to my eyes

Armageddon always gets we when Bruce WIllis tells his daughter he won't be coming back. Ladder 49 makes me cry during the funeral procession. The end of The Dark Knight RIses brought a tear to my eye as well, all 5 times.

Ive cried at films before but theres one film were I always get teary eyed and cry and that film is "Blow." The part at the ending where Johnny is recording that tape recorder for his dad before he goes back to jail for some reason always gets me. I think 50% of it has to do with the music that comes on then and the rest is that you really do feel johnny character after seeing what he had been through. Also if someone didnt cried when william wallace died then you have no soul.

Niagra Falls, Frankie Angel

I usually cry watching:
Click, Close Encounters, Hook, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Limited.
BUT my favorite one to watch and get all emo and cry is 127 HOURS; seriously, at the end when the dude runs up to Aron and tosses him his bottle of water without him having to even ask, I just lose it. Really the last 15 minutes of the movie just makes me cry, but ONLY if I watch it all the way through, I have to go on that whole emotional journey to really feel it at the end.

You said it. When he has the vision of his future son is another part of that movie that is like instant tears for me. The part in Black Swan where she tells her mom over the phone that she got the lead in the show also gets me.

That movie catches everybody off guard, "Oh look Adam Sandler is farting in David Hasselhoff's mouth ha ha ha" ... and then boom, uncontrollable sobbing.

Let Me In really brought on the waterworks a couple years back. "You bow to no one" at the end of Return of the King always gets me. The end of Requiem for a Dream culminating in the aftermath of the lobotomy is crazy emotional for me. The end of Schindler's List is definitely up there, too. And the very very very end of District 9 with the flower gets me every time.

There have been plenty of movies, partly while I enjoy them. Occassionally, I enjoy it when a movie gets me emotional. I will even go so far as to say that some movies, like Schindler's List, I can't watch very often because of how emotional they make me. But if a movie can stir the emotions, then it is a very worthwhile movie indeed.

Hachi: A Dog's Tale

Totally balled my eyes out watching this movie starting Richard Gere and this amazing dog. Trust me, if you love dogs then this movie will make you cry like a fuckin baby. I had to give my dog up recently and I dare not even watch this movie.

Its a great movie though, but incredibly sad.

That video is funny, worth the spoiler. My first movie cry was possibly The Champ. Schindler's List is another one that brought on the waterworks. Strangely enough, the most recent film I found be emotional was the end of The Grey when Neeson is laying out the wallets. Yeah, that's right. I'm a wuss.

This will sound weird...

But I remember one of the very first movies that ever made me burst out crying (other than Mufasa's death in LION KING) was the beginning of THE ROCK (I was 9 when I first saw it). I cried like crazy when the soldier was locked behind in the VX gas chamber and he was exposed and begging for help. I couldn't believe we could make something so horrible and that gas is real.

remember when Disney movies used to make kids happy? What the hell Timothy Green haha perhaps it did have a sweet ending and these kids are just overreacting. Either way though, looks like they made a movie that had an effect on kids and will be one that kids remember.
