There are two types of people in this world: those who cry during sad movies and those who don’t cry during sad movies. As far as we are concerned, we definitely fall into the first category. When we were kids, Bambi was the first movie to make us weep—and it still does to this very day!
Recently, a viral video that perfectly illustrates this topic has been making its rounds all over the internet. It stars an adorable 2-year-old named Jentree who has been left completely despondent upon viewing the first 10 minutes of the flick The Good Dinosaur.
The clip starts off with Jentree’s grandmother trying to get to the bottom of why the little girl is sitting on the couch crying. The adorable blonde tyke has big tears running down her cheeks as her eyes stay fixed on the screen.
Judging by the look on her face, you’d think she was watching some sort of unspeakable crime occur, not an animated children’s film.
When her grandmother asks her what’s wrong, the compassionate kiddo says, “He’s sad.”
Apparently, the main character in the movie is experiencing what so many others in Disney movies before him have endured—he’s been separated from his mother. The dinosaur has fallen off of a cliff, leaving him hurt and alone, a fact that doesn’t sit well with the tiny viewer.
Even seconds later, when the dinosaur miraculously recovers from his injuries, Jentree’s lip is still quivering. Her poor grandmother is grasping at straws, desperately trying to find a way to make the toddler feel better.
“It’s OK. Look, he’s waking up. Say, ‘Get up dinosaur!’” the grandmother urges.
Even though Jentree obliges and follows her grandma’s instructions, the girl still remains focused on the issue at hand. She wipes another tear off her face and pitifully announces that the character’s misfortune made her “sad.”
The grandma laughs uncomfortably—and we don’t blame her! It’s one of those parenting moments where you know you should take a child’s emotions seriously, but the situation is just so dang hilarious it’s hard not to hold back a few chuckles.
Even though the onscreen dinosaur has seemed to recover, Jentree sure hasn’t. “He wants his momma,” the astute toddler woefully proclaims. She even goes on to instruct the character to call out for his mother.
We’re not going to lie—we are getting pretty close to crying right along with this little girl. Even though she’s got her grandmother by her side, it seems like she too needs the love of her own mother to get her through this particularly sad movie moment!
To see this babe’s wildly empathetic reaction to a scared and hurting animated dinosaur, be sure to watch the video below. It doesn’t get much cuter than this, folks!
We can’t wait to hear what you have to say about this tot’s review of The Good Dinosaur’s saddest moment. Did this movie make your little one cry, too? What film makes you weep?
