Saddest Movies list

Updated on May 13, 2009

Saddest movies list

1. Terms of Endearment  (This is probably the SADDEST on my list. It's even sadder than Beaches, which is pretty damn sad!!!!)

2. Beaches (You don't need a tissue for this movie, you need a whole box of tissues!)

3. Stepmom (This is like the Terms of Endearment of the 90's...very sad. The scene where she's saying goodbye to her kids gets me everytime, in BOTH movies)

4. Titanic (The two old people holding each other as the ship goes down, the mother reading her kids a bedtime story...OH MY GOD. Oh, and all the people dying, that was sad too)

5. American Beauty (If you haven't seen this movie already, go rent it now!!! Everybody must see it)

6. Philadelphia (I can't watch this one very much, but god, it was sad)

7. Steel Magnolias (Another sad chick flick with Julia Roberts)

8. The Green Mile (An innocent man who has a choice of walking away from the death penalty, but he doesn't want to live anymore when people are so "ugly" to each other. OH MY GOD)

9. My Girl ("He can't see without his glasses!!")

10. Dead Poet's Society (Robert Sean's Leonard's

11. My Life (I just watched this for the first time a few months ago, and I cried so hard over this movie that I felt sick, literally sick. Do not see this movie if you are depressed. I am warning you.)

12. Pay It Forward (Very sad, and unexpected ending)

13. Kramer vs. Kramer (Had a happy ending, but it was a sad road to get there)

14. Forrest Gump (This movie is just perfect, in every way possible, but there are a few sad scenes)

15. When A Man Loves a Woman (Andy Garcia's goodbye speech to his kids....sooo real and sooo sad)

16. Swing Kids!!!! ("Swing heil!")

17. Cast Away!!! "Now I'm losing her all over again." : * (

      The saddest movie of all time is seven pounds. Will Smith commits suicide to give his heart to save the life of a girl. He gave a different gift to several people after the death of his wife in a car accident. I cried for 30 minutes. I can never watch this movie again. Too sad.
