Okay I’ve searched for hours but I can’t find this movie. I'll list some scenes I remember.

I remember it was about a little kid who was diagnosed with brain cancer and knew he’d die soon. I remember a scene when he was lying on his bead and his face was to the pillow. his father told him "stop it" so he told him "I'm going to die anyway".

I remember him and his father (I think) going out on some journey. they asked some guy for directions. the guy made them go on a blocked road and came after them, showed them a knife and stole their money

their car was stolen also. I remember they they stopped for some guy who needed a ride. they were chatting. he told them about his wife and that she had breast cancer and the kid told him that he has brain cancer. they stopped (can't remember why), the boy and his father stepped down from the car and the guy stole the car.

I remember the kid on his father’s back. the father shouts I’m a moron and the kid replies giddy up moron.

they enter a bar. and there’s some game of a pistol duel (the guy has a pistol in his pocket, the guy in the game counts to 3 and you have to shoot him on 3) the father tried a lot but couldn't win.

…in the end the kid died. the father got back to that bar, played again and won and walked away and the bar tender asked him “don’t you want your money” but he didn't reply.

I think I saw this movie about 8 years ago or something.

Can you give anymore details, such as the location of the film, the language of it, age of actors/actresses, any direct quotes of a few lines (in addition to the ones provided)? –  Andrew Martin Mar 7 at 19:58

I googled "Saddest movie ever" but didn't find anything. –  DustinDavis Mar 7 at 20:35
    
@AndrewMartin I can't remember anything more beneficial than those I wrote. They spoke English. I think it had "an oldie theme" where bars used to have short doors that swing back and forth after you enter (I can't express what I mean). ...I've googled many quotes leftover in my mind but no good. There's "I am such a moron" and "giddy up moron". also "(hey stranger,) don't you want your money?" the bartender told the father that when he won. also "I'm going to die anyway". also: "she has the breast cancer" when they were chatting with the guy in the car (who stole it). –  Mina Michael Mar 7 at 20:54
    
@DustinDavis hahahahaha good idea that of "saddest movie ever" it is very sad XD ...yet I'm dying to find it!! it takes up a big big part in my memory –  Mina Michael Mar 7 at 20:59
    
@MinaMichael: I'm finding this search extremely frustrating! Have tried all combinations of searches and went through some 27 pages of cancer movies and have got nothing. I hope someone else has more success - remember, if you can think of ANYTHING else, just add it to your post. –  Andrew Martin Mar 7 at 21:38

The Cactus Kid (2000) - Movie Poster

The Cactus Kid (2000)

Here's what the blurb says:

When Jack discovers that his 10-year-old son Georgie is dying he makes a promise to fulfill all of his dreams before their time together runs out.

Georgie tells his dad that he wants to rob a bank, just like the heroes in his favorite comic book "The Cactus Kid".

From the trailer page (link below) and this site:

Jack's world collapses around him when he learns that Georgie is dying of an inoperable brain tumor.

Scenes you might remember:

And towards the end when Jack returns to the saloon for the shooting game:

Watch the trailer to confirm. Or watch the full movie, if you don't mind sitting through a Russian dub :-)

@Andrew - I think I kept Googling "movie with kid dying of brain tumor". Or something to that effect. But the operating word(s) was "brain tumor". There! My secret's out :-) –  rumandwrite Mar 11 at 19:58
