Pass the Tissue: 5 clips from family films that never fail to make us cry

Who knew animation could be so emotional?

Sive O'Brien

Let’s face it, we all enjoy a good cry every now and then. Sometimes it’s good just to turn on the waterworks and let it all out. In fact, it’s necessary for women (especially mums) to take a few minutes just to indulge in a good old sob. It’s therapeutic, right?

With this in mind, we’ve rounded up five tearjerker clips taken from some of our favourite family-friendly movies, which are guaranteed to have you in floods. Who knew animation could be SO emotional?


1. Up – Carl and Ellie’s love story


2. Bambi – Bambi’s mum is shot


3. Tangled – Rapunzel is reunited with her parents


4. The Land Before Time – Littlefoot’s mum dies


5. The Lion Kong – Mufasa dies
