The main character watches his family die one by one when he is a child, the one responsible for it follows him wherever he goes. He eventually finds the woman he wishes to spend the rest of his life with and the start a family only for a freak accident to kill one of their children and seriously injure his partner. His partner eventually succumbs to her injuries and he has to fight off the guy who killed his family in order to save his remaining two children, unfortunately he can only save his youngest and almost dies doing so.

This is a childrens film about dinosaurs and I've just sat and cried pretty much all the way through. He's had such a hard life sad

*In my defense I'm very hormonal blush

It sounds awful, why would anyone want to subject themselves to watching such misery....

Sounds like a Danielle Steel book.

But no, YANBU crying at that...I would be a blubbering wreck and I am not hormonal. Don't watch Hatchi A Dogs Tale then, will tip you over the edge!

What film is it?

I always cry at Marley and Me and PS I Love You!

I have even cried at Hollyoaks blush

I cried at Madagascar 3 ds1 was v v embarrassed

Its called The Dino King and came up under family faves in my lovefilm account.

I also cried at Toy Story 3! When the toys hold hands when they think they are going into the fore and when Andy gives them away.

Anither note: Apparently there is going to be a Toy Story 4!

Oh yes when they all realise there's no way out and all hold hands.. I was in bits.and in toy story 2 when jessie is left in a box

I cried at Toy Story 3 and UP, in fact a lot of films seem to make me cry. I'm the only member of my family to have cried watching the Titanic

Toy Story 4 you say? YAY grin

I have seen grown men cry at Up. It is an amazing film.

My DCs put Toy Story3 on for no other reason other than to see me cry and ruffle DS1 (12)'s hair they grow up so fast, sob

Never understood why people cried at PS I love you.

He died after one scene, you hadn't been introduced to his character or watched him develop or fell in love with them as a couple.

Maybe I am heartless like Chandler and agree that Bambi was very sad "when the guys stopped drawing the cartoon deer" smile

YANBU. I would cry at that and probably feel sad about it for a week afterwards blush

I actually had a go at DH after watching Up at his suggestion. Made me feel dreadful. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who is a bit daft and oversensitive when it comes to films.

Surely though childrens films shouldn't be quite so depressing

SpicyPear Tue 26-Feb-13 14:04:26

I agree. The Snowman and Watership Down are probably the root of my issue with sad films!

Did your DC cry at the dino film? Sounds like the grown-up theme, amongst all the DC-friendly dinosaur stuff, was quite well done if it got you so deep in the feels wink

As for Toy Story 3 I didn't give much of a stuff at the giving away bit but I sobbed and choked at the furnace bit. In a cinema.

FeckOffCup Tue 26-Feb-13 14:18:09

Yes toy story 3 got me as well, sobbed from the furnace bit until the end. I can't remember the name of the film now but I was in bits at one about a family that raises a baby cheetah and then release it, when it goes off into the wild sad.

Nope nephew didn't cry but did provide cuddles to help cheer me up smile

kalidanger Tue 26-Feb-13 14:27:43

Awwww. Did you try to explain why dear aunty was crying at dinosaurs? "Well, DN. there are these things called 'hormones'. They are like naughty pixies that make girls cry and when you're a bit older, som hair might grow and... And... Uhm, let's do some drawing!"

I'm another Toy Story 3 crier! I cried the most at this

Bridge to Terabithia makes me cry too sad

I always cry when Mustafa dies in Lion King.
And Eight Below is meant to be a kids film but soooo sad. Good, but sad!
YANBU to cry at this. Bless you!

Bawled at the snowman and the dog....oh just sat next to me holding my hand. It was right at the beginning when the bloody dog dies....reminded me of my old dog who died at a very old age 12 years ago!!!!!!!!

stupid stupid old woman

I cry at a lot of things since having kids.
Toy story 3 was deeply upsetting!

Is this the time to start explaining gently to you that ultimately the story doesn't end well for any of the dinosaurs, OP...? grin

(But, yes, sounds a bit dark for children. I think I'll steer clear!)

I think 3D cinema glasses were specifically invented by a middle aged Mum who had suffered the indignity of public weeping once too often.
Now we just sit incognito as silent tears roll down behind dark glasses...

Ice Age - the bit when it's revealed that Manny the Mammoth's family were killed by hunters, but he still helps the human child.
