    oh yes, i was thinking of some holocaust movies, but I'll second you on this. I saw this movie and then Barefoot Gen. Both were really sad, painful in fact.

    I could add Forrest Gump, Titanic, Sophie's Choice, Saving Private Ryan, the end of Green Mile, Hachi - a dog story ... Benjamin Button, some of the stuff in Sleepers, Passion of Christ was really sad and painful ... Ghost was definitely sad, ...

    I once saw a sad movie as a kid. Can someone tell me the name. This thread really has me trying hard to recall. I asked my Dad but he he has Alzheimer's so can't help much.

    There was a couple, one of them died and went up to heaven. They show heaven using some stars made of shiny paper like on Christmas trees. It was very simply done, no elaborate sets - probably the entire movie was shot in a room or house with that faked up heaven with shiny paper.

    This was most probably late 70's, or at most very early 80's. I remember as we walked out of the theater a young lady behind us saying she cried after many years. This was not shown at the public theater, this was at the American Center (then called USIS) (which showed a lot of old movies) so the movie could have been made much much earlier that the 70's.

    The name probably had 4 or 5 words in it. I believe the movie was color, but can't be sure.

    Though it's a movie made primarily for children, the first few minutes of "Up" were touching. I'm referring to the scenes showing the old man's life up to the present (dating, falling in love, marriage, fertility struggles, losing his wife).

    Not the saddest by any means, but it came to mind.

    4 movies I've teared up in;

    1) Forrest Gump
    2) Marley and Me
    3) Up
    4) Band Of Brothers, though it's a mini-series as opposed to a movie, the last line of the final episode kills me.

    The selection scene reminds me of another holocause movie scene, but i cannot recall the movie -- its a long time back -- in which a mother is hiding with her tiny baby (whom she has in her arms). The baby is crying and she accidentally smothers the baby to stifle the crying -- killing her.

    No! That one brings out the baby in all of us...so sad.


    I'd also say the ending of American Beauty is very depressing, although not very "sad".

    I'll admit that due to having the same kind of dog in Marley and Me, I teared up a little during the ending of that one.

    I didn't just tear up...I cried freely. Still not ashamed.

    Dogs and others....

    1. Old Yeller
    2. Marley and Me
    3. The Sandlot - very funny movie but the end - "Skip died"....

    Saving Private Ryan
    All the chick flicks previously mentioned that I won't admit to watching....

    The last two Die Hard movies. I was really sad to have spent money on those. :)

    Whoops - just came to mind and serious. Phar Lap.

    I'm a huge dog love, but I absolutely detested Marley and Me. Couldn't finish the movie, to be honest.

    Nothing more sad than the ongoing destruction of generations upon generations of countless people all done for nothing, only greed.

    Dodgeball.

    Can't believe the superpower from globo gym lead by white goodman lost to those low life's from average joes. A real feel good story ruined. White goodman loses all his unhealthy weight, proceeds to then open up his own gym and become incredibly wealthy. Then too lose it all to average joes really broke my heart. Sad, sad, sad.

    I've seen this movie probably 12 times. When does someone die and who the hell is skip?


    Also the movie "click" I believe its called with adam sandler. Always call my dad after that one.

    bad TT poster, bad....

    Nobody dies. I was watching My Dog Skip with my daughter for the umpteenth time and were talking about The Sandlot and Secondhand Lions.

    Paused the movie and typed what I was watching and thinking. Sorry.

    Was made by HBO, can get from Netflix. Should be a must-see for all Americans.
