Tear Jerker: The 10th Kingdom
Unquestionably, the death of the Evil Queen in The 10th Kingdom. Just hearing her call Virginia her little girl with her last breath is pretty heart-wrenching.
Just listening to Virginia baring her soul about being abandoned when she was seven. Particularly the lines: "I miss her. And I hate her! And I miss her! Just adding another bit from the same scene as above when Virginia recounts the feeling of being abandoned by her mother as "I was on a train and it crashed or something, and no one came and rescued me!"
The scene where Tony fell down in the mines was also tragic for Virginia. The poor guy suffered from a lot of bad luck and this could have resulted in his death.
The Queen running away after she almost killed her daughter in the real world. True, she proved she was a horrible mother, but her breakdown after realizing what happened does warrant a little sympathy.
