Two Boys Are Inconsolable With Grief After Watching Disney's 'The Odd Life Of Timothy Green' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Watching a film that stuns you by breaking your heart seems to be a sort of rite of passage for children of a certain age.

"Bambi," "Old Yeller," "Charlotte's Web" -- every generation seems to have that "feel-good" movie that leaves audiences scarred for life.

This year, Disney's new family movie "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" seems poised to fulfill that hapless role.

In this home video, two young brothers react to the ending of the Disney film -- which, as the boys are quick to point out, is heartrendingly sad.

[SPOILER ALERT!]

"He had to die and I didn't want him to," howls the younger boy, referring to the death of a central character who meets his end at the film's denouement.

Though his mom attempts to console him -- rationalizing the inevitability of death in the "circle of life" -- the child was having none of it.

"But it was so sad. It was just so sad," the boy says, sobbing. "I didn't want him to."

When asked if the movie was worth watching, the child had a warning for potential viewers.

"If you do, you will tear out your eyes. It was so sad," he responds sagely.

His brother seemed a little more divided on the matter. "There were so many happy and sad moments," he says through tears.
