Feel good Disney movie leaves kids sobbing

Posted on August 20, 2012 by

I’m pretty sure this was my exact reaction to the following movies: Bambi, Dumbo, My Dog Skip, Marley and Me, War Horse (the latter was just last year and I soaked through 17 tissues — I counted). Usually my kryptonite is ANY MOVIE with animals but these kids are a little more sensitive to their own mortality, as expressed through “feel good movie” The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

I feel slightly sadistic laughing at the two brothers, whose parents recorded them on the ride home from the theatre. It’s probably so funny because we’ve all been there.

What movie always gets you?

    This is an honest, deeply emotional reaction to something upsetting. What’s REALLY sad is the fact that we lose the ability to have this reaction. Like feeling is something to be ashamed of.
