Top 10 Depressing toddler movies

You know you saw Toy Story 3 this weekend, and you know you cried. Lets take a look back at some of film history’s other great kid-movie weepies.

#10 Fluke, 1995

This movie is sort of like Ghost, if Patrick Swayze had been a Golden Retriever instead of a vaguely effeminate male spirit. A dude who is not a very good family man dies, is reincarnated into a dog and uses his second chance to try to make things right with his wife and son. Schmaltzy animal shenanigans of all sorts ensue. And then, at movie’s end, Fluke realizes, “You know what? I’m a dog. What the hell am I doing here?” (we’re paraphrasing here). The film’s penultimate scene in a snow-covered graveyard is a killer. Emotion-wise, that is.

#9 An American Tail, 1986

After the Mouskekewitzes, a group of Russian-Jewish mice, decide to move to America in the late 19th century, their son Fievel gets thrown overboard and washes ashore in New York City. The entire film is about a small immigrant rodent trying to get back to his family. Pretty sad, right? Yes it is. And then this tune gets sung. Don’t lie, you’re a puddle of tears.

    Begging your pardon, but where does the soul-gutting animated movie, ‘Plague Dogs,’ figure into this?
