Watching TS3 with the kids - it's so sad sad sad sad
Pixar movies never fail to make me cry.

AIBU and a massive weepy softie?

I cried too. And we saw it at the cinema. Oh the shame. blush Since having kids I get so emotional at the strangest things!

WorraLiberty Sat 08-Mar-14 14:33:51

I must admit, things like that often bring a little tear to my eye or a lump to my throat.

But I've never actually bawled or been in floods of tears at any film.

Another one who cried at the end. At the cinema so had to restrain myself to a bit of surreptitious eye-wiping rather than a full-on bawl. My children were entirely unaffected and though I was mad.

Gets me every time....sad

I'm going to use my age as an excuse. I was 4 when the first came out and 8 when the 2nd. Number 3 signals the end of my childhood...
A bit like Harry Potter

I watched that this morning, we'll I forced DD, 2, to watch it. I am now actually off to the Disney store to buy myself a strawberry lotso!

"bawl" is an overreaction blush I do cry a little though

Not unreasonable at all

I bawled at Toy Story 3, UP, Nanny McPhee - wasn't even pregnant.

Objection Sat 08-Mar-14 14:42:28

OH actually refuses to watch Up - he always cries at the first 10 mins grin

WowserBowser Sat 08-Mar-14 14:52:07

I properly sobbed when they all held hands

I don't particularly like kids films but surprisingly enjoyed that

Cranky01 Sat 08-Mar-14 15:00:07

It when they resign themselves to incinerator and hold hands that gets me

MyBodyIsAtemplate Sat 08-Mar-14 15:00:51

I cried at Andy leaving home as both my lads left to go to uni. his mum saying we just want to be part if your life!! cried.

the real tear jerker for me though is the royal family Christmas special when Nanna dies. Barbara is doing her hair and Nanna thanks her for not putting her in a home but staying with her family.

very very evocative for me.

I dont cry at much but Toy Story 3 gets me every time, along with UP.
When I was pg I watched Ice Age and was so distraught that I sobbed hysterically until DH switched it off

SteveBrucesNose Sat 08-Mar-14 15:33:17


although up is significantly worse. The shame of watching it on a plane for the first time, flying alone and sitting next to a random bloke, who asked me how I was.

DumSpiroSpero Sat 08-Mar-14 18:07:16

YANBU. It's on my list of films I will never watch again, albeit probably not for obvious reasons.

DD 'lost' a much loved the bear about 18 months after it came out and I can't cope with the flashback where Lotso and Big Baby get left behind and think they've been abandoned sad .

We got an identical replacement for DD thank God but it was hideously upsetting at the time.

Her ted was a Build a Bear, so a very 'personal' toy, who was basically stolen whilst we were on holiday and I still wonder where she ended up 2 years later. I know she was a stuffed toy who obviously isn't actually capable of missing DD but I still feel a bit sick when I think about it.

This is too spooky, I was seriously about to start the EXACT same thread yesterday (until I got distracted by one of my children)!

My 3 year old is obsessed with this film at the moment, and insists we watch at least twice a week. I choke up every single time at the incinerator bit and when Andy drives off at the end. We watched it again yesterday and sure enough my throat got all tight and my eyes filled up, even though I've seen it about 20 times now.

I think the ending is quite sad, not because we picture ourselves as Andy, but rather we picture ourselves as Andy's toys, and like his toys, we know as parents that there will come a time when our children won't need us or want to play with us anymore.

The holding hands scene is brilliantly done whn everyone realises there is no way out.

The bears backstory is great too, that he became evil after a horrible experience.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 08-Mar-14 20:00:00

I still actually cry over a toy my parents threw out when I went to University - they threw out all my toys that I'd really carefully packed in a box.

I'd left him behind as he was too special to take sad and I knew I'd want him when I got children of my own.

This is more than 25 years ago!

YANBU <gavel>

Blondieminx Sat 08-Mar-14 20:10:48

Yanbu, at all.

I cried at TS3, UP and Frozen. I am soppy!

Pollyputthekettle Sat 08-Mar-14 20:15:59


I could also cry at how old I feel to know other posters were children themselves when TS1 came out. How old do I fell? grin

Yanbu. Typing now through eyes brimming just thinking about those scenes. I was never like this before kids.
