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

Marley and me is horrible i cried for aaaaages after

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.

timetosmile Tue 26-Feb-13 13:45:53

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

LaPetiteSirene Tue 26-Feb-13 13:47:33

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

SpicyPear Tue 26-Feb-13 13:48:36

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.

BlessedDespair Tue 26-Feb-13 13:58:40

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!

kalidanger Tue 26-Feb-13 14:08:23

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.

BlessedDespair Tue 26-Feb-13 14:25:19

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!"

numbum Tue 26-Feb-13 14:28:24

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

Badvoc Tue 26-Feb-13 14:40:00

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!)

timetosmile Tue 26-Feb-13 19:53:23

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...

potsyandco Tue 26-Feb-13 19:57:29

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.

MissFredi Fri 12-Apr-13 14:25:38

Not in the slightest OP!!

I once ran out of money, then finished my last packet of cigarettes in the morning, and OH got paid at midnight that day. He thought it would take my mind off it to put family guy DVDs on(fair play to him, I love family guy). Unfortunately, one episode was the episode where the toy factory is taken over by a tobacco company, and normally it's quite a funny episode. At this point however it wasn't the case and I cried my eyes out.

THAT is unreasonable.

Top three films to make me blub.

1. A kid for two farthings
2. Shadowlands
3. The way we were.

NynaevesSister Fri 12-Apr-13 14:32:58

Up, now THAT'S how you do a love story Hollywood. I bawl every time. Right over son's head though. Ice Age breaks my heart every time. The loss of the mother. The father thinking he has lost both. Learning about Manny's family.

Toy Story 3!

But Up is genius I think.

AmberLeaf Fri 12-Apr-13 14:33:56

Toy story 3, I was like shock shock at the furnace bit, I just couldn't believe it was going to happen that way!

Watership down always makes me weep.

Flobbadobs Fri 12-Apr-13 14:36:52

DS cries at the end of Monster's Inc when he goes back to see Boo. He's 12. I cried like a baby the first time I saw the start of UP but I was Pg at the time grin
I also got a lump in my throat when watching Finding Neverland when she goes of with the characters at the end of the play, it took me a few minutes to realise that she had actually died, then I just wept!

AmberLeaf Fri 12-Apr-13 14:38:01

Ive not seen Up.

May have to give it a go.

inchoccyheaven Fri 12-Apr-13 14:41:30

I cried at the Croods yesterday when I thought the Dad was going to get left behind forever blush

Pixieonthemoor Fri 12-Apr-13 14:43:48

Up = massive lump in the throat, Toy Story 3 I was ready to struggle given that everyone had told me I would blub but actually I didn't find it too bad.

The one that really got me, however, is in Tangled where the King and Queen are about to go outside and release the lanterns to commemorate their lost child. The queen straightens the kings collar and then looks up into his face.....and it is just so devastatingly, achingly sad, with a single tear sliding down his cheek. Oh god, I am welling up even thinking about it!

MaxPepsi Fri 12-Apr-13 14:48:02

I cry at almost everything.

Bawled at UP in the cinema, my friend just shook her head at me. She was upset too but didn't cry.

Was crying so much at PS I love you especially the bit in the park with her Mum that I ended up giggling out of sheer desperation at the thought of never being able to stop.

The current Macmillan advert - where strangers catch the falling people is the biggest thing at the moment to set me off however, along with NSPCC adverts.

I've not got kids so what is my excuse for being hormonal???

AmberLeaf Fri 12-Apr-13 14:58:55

I cried silently in the cinema at the trailer for 'a song for marion'? think it was called.

Not watched it yet though.

Gerrof Fri 12-Apr-13 15:06:14

Do all the toys die at the end of Toy Story 3 then? I have had it on my planner to watch for ages but have never got round to it.

Gerrof Fri 12-Apr-13 15:08:09

I cry at that Macmillan advert.

Worst I have ever cried at a film was bridges of Madison County, I think I was full on snot crying for the last half hour of the film, interspersed with shouting at Meryl Streep 'get out of the fucking car'. never would have thought I would have cried over Clint Eastwood. grin

Steel Magnolias is soooo sad, the bit where Julia Roberts' character has died and the Mum (Sally Field) is at the grave after the funeral being told to try and remember the good times and she says something like 'You're right, I should do that - but I wish someone would tell my heart!' that line made me bawl. Probably because I have a 6 month old DD.

AmberLeaf Fri 12-Apr-13 16:47:00

Gerrof, you'll have to watch it wink

Filibear, yes the old neighbour in home alone at the end made me well up.

bluebell8782 Fri 12-Apr-13 17:01:02

I think some of the saddest films are children's films. Has anyone seen My Dog Skip - I bawled - still brings tears to my eyes if I think about it sad

i knew before i finished the op it was the dino king.

yanbu at all, it's unbearably sad.

i always bawl at it while 2 yr old DS gives me this face hmm

ThedementedPenguin Fri 12-Apr-13 17:17:11

I cry at the notebook. It's truly amazing.

Also watching ps I love you. Not when he dies but near the end when the mum hands over the last letter and its the end, I ball my eyes out!
