Tell Us Now: 17 Heart-Wrenching Pixar Moments
If there’s one thing to expect from a Pixar movie, it’s the watershed. We all know to not go into a Pixar film without bringing some tissues, with the only notable exception maybe being Cars. But we’re happy to be proven wrong.
We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What moment from a Pixar movie is most heart-wrenching for you?” The clear winner was, as expected, the opening montage from Up, but even within those brief 10 minutes, people had differing opinions on what moment was the saddest. Coco was the clear second-place winner, many people citing the ending as a total tearjerker. However, the answers we found the most interesting were the nonobvious choices and the personal reasons why some moments stuck out to some people, like Finding Dory reminding one reader of their own worry as a parent.
