13 Movies We’re Not Ashamed To Admit Brought a Tear to Our Eye

Marley & Me (2008)

Sharing is caring!

Movies are meant to evoke emotions and connect with viewers, and sometimes, they’re so powerful they bring us to tears. While some boast that they’ve “never cried at a movie” or don’t understand how a film makes people so emotional, we’re not afraid to admit that we’ve wept during and after some of our favorite flicks.

The tears may come because of a tragic death, a painful goodbye, or just the relatability of a character’s struggle, but we encourage you not to fight the feeling and let the tears flow!

1. Click (2006)

Adam Sandler is best known for his silly and raunchy characters and movies, so that’s what most of us expected from Click. While it had stupid moments and lewd jokes, it also had a meaningful message at the center and one intense scene that brought tears to our eyes.

2. Up (2009)

Up is unique because it manages to make viewers, including us, cry within the first ten minutes. In less time than it takes to shower, the makers of this movie crafted lovable characters and a sweet storyline that rips your heart out, putting you in a vulnerable and emotional state before the main plot even begins.

3. Coco (2017)

Coco is an endearing movie, and most of the film is filled with music and cheerfulness, making the tearful ending all the more impactful. The sentiments about family, the past, and identity are powerful, giving you a moment to appreciate the people who love you unconditionally.

Unlike some other movies, the dog in Marley & Me doesn’t have a tragic or painful death. It’s peaceful, and he’s surrounded by love when he goes, but that doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking to watch. The movie captures the heartbreak we feel when we have to say goodbye to our beloved pets, which not everyone understands.

5. The Iron Giant (1999)

The Iron Giant is a charming movie about an alien robot that befriends a young boy on Earth. The film is witty and fun, but the friendship between these two is so palpable that the end is hard to handle. We want our children’s movies to have happy endings, and while this ending isn’t bad, it is a hard pill to swallow.

6. Where the Red Fern Grows (1974)

It’s hard to even write about this one without tearing up. Those of us who feel deeply connected to dogs and other animals can’t help but sob at the end of this film, no matter how many times we’ve seen it. Yes, the two dogs die, but they’re brutal and heart-wrenching deaths, making it all the more tragic.

As much as we like to deny it, dealing with human emotions is exhausting and difficult, whether it’s anxiety, fear, sadness, or anger. Inside Out offers a playful but honest depiction of the war of feelings that can go on in a tween’s head and how difficult it is to accept change and stay positive.

8. Steel Magnolias (2012)

Steel Magnolias seems like a frilly and silly show about women who hang out at a hair salon to those who haven’t seen it. But the journey you go on with these ladies and the sorrowful ending will have you in shambles and reaching for more tissues. It highlights the pain of losing someone young and vibrant.

9. Toy Story 3 (2010)

To be fair, we could shed a tear at any of the Toy Story films, but the third is particularly emotional, especially for those of us who grew up with the films. Kids aren’t as saddened by this film because they haven’t had to let go of too many things in life yet, but the adults understand the pain of growing up all too well.

Do you want to shatter your heart into a million pieces and ruin the rest of your day? Then watch this movie! But seriously, this might be the most tragic and intensely sad movie ever made. Two young boys form a beautiful, innocent friendship, and they perish because of hateful men who don’t know the first thing about kindness or compassion.

A story of an Italian bookseller with Jewish ancestry that lives a fairy tale life gets deported to a concentration camp during World War II. Life Is Beautiful becomes an absolute tear-jerker as he tries to convince his son that the whole experience is an elaborate game.

This movie is chock full of themes that are likely to bring tears to your eyes. Between Forrest Gump overcoming his challenges, the story with Jenny, helping Bubba’s family and helping Lt. Dan, there are plenty of moments that make us cry nearly every time.

13. Titanic (1997)

The classic love story between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). Before watching, it was obvious from the history of the ship that it was going to be a tragedy, but then the story of the characters develop. The tragedy of the ship and the emotions become all the more real.
