What was your weepiest movie as a kid?
Categories: movies

After much giggling and the odd tear shed, I have drawn a line in the sand and placed a bet with Miniminx for £100 (of Game of Life money I might add). The best is over whether she can sit through the film Lassie Come Home without shedding a tear. I don’t think for a moment that butter wouldn’t melt expression will remain on her face once she sees this film.

And why?

Firstly; she may not believe me that watching that film with one of my brothers and two of my sisters had us crying buckets and uncontrollably snotting, so much that we had to leave the room, but it’s true. And secondly, this is powerful stuff. Just searching for it on IMDB brought tears to my eyes and by the time I found it on Amazon, well, I was ready to start sobbing.

Needless to say my daughter was rolling around laughing; well let’s see what happens when she watches it. It’s due to arrive in the post this week. In fact, I bought a box set of Lassie movies.

I shall report back on how I cope with watching it again whether this weepy has stood the test of time, but do tell me what’s the saddest film you saw as a kid?

    I don’t know if it was the weepiest as I tended to get weepy a lot but one I remember was called Escape from the dark and there was a pit pony called Flash and he never made it to the end. Plus Dumbo of course!

  2. For me, and most of my class at school, it was definitely ET.

    Mine was Bambi when I was 3, and Kes when I was a bit older.

  4. Not every really being into cartoony films, the one that got me was ‘Mandy’ about a deaf and dumb girl. I remember watching this several times when I was young, and weaping everytime. Also a film called the Yearling, about a young boy who adopts a deer.

      Hello Jen – well the box set of Lassie movies arrived and they’ve yet to be watched. My sister is coming over for dinner this evening and we are going to watch Lassie Come Home to see if it’s still such a tear jerker…my daughter no doubt will be laughing her socks off! x
