Top 10 Most Overrated Disney MoviesWaltDisneytoptens1937 Note: I'm not saying these movies are bad. I love most of them, but what people do, they make a top 10 Disney villain countdown or something, then add the villain in their favorite movie because it's their favorite movie. Same thing with princesses. If they make a top ten Disney movie countdown and add let's say "Beauty and the Beast" is number one because Belle is their favorite princess. I mean really. But if you do that, remember to look further. And if a movie is on here that is your favorite and you don't do that dumb thing, it's alright. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
Oh. My. Word. I cannot believe how overrated this Disney movie is. At first when it came out, it was ok, people weren't crazy for it. But as time came and went, the popularity started to rise A LOT to the point when I decided to watch "the goodness I was missing". When I did, I must say that... I was a little disappointed. It wasn't as good as people said it was. I expected it to be, like, VERY AWESOME! Or WOW! But no. It was like everyone was playing a trick on me or something. I'm not saying Frozen is a bad movie, but that the movie is just overrated and does not deserve all this popularity. And guess what- even at school as a Christmas treat, like always, we watch a movie to celebrate. Guess what the movie what? Frozen. I felt really bad at the moment. But what I hate the most about Frozen is "the best song ever": Let It Go. I prefer The Circle Of Life! Seriously, when we were watching the movie at school, when it came to Let It Go, EVERYONE was singing along- ...more - anythingispossible
Okay... so here is my story :/
So I decided to watch this movie a month after it came out due to the hype. At first I did not want to watch it, but you see everywhere I went all I saw was FROZEN. Frozen games, frozen dolls, frozen posters, frozen everything! So I said to myself "this can't be that bad."
I was wrong. So I watched it and was like okay... where does the exciting stuff come in... Then the movie ended and I was like okay. Pretty much the movie wasn't as inspiring as I thought. (All I heard was stuff like: "Elsa doesn't need a man! " "Frozen saved my life! " "They are my idols! ")
What the story plot to me was:
There is a princess who freezes everything with her sister who doesn't have powers. Then by accident she freezes her sister and then everyone gets pissed (Like they didn't think she would freeze anyone before? ) Then they decide to take her to some weird rock dudes who say she needs to stop hurting ...more
God, this movie's popularity drags on. My English teacher loves it, people say they like it and they've never even seen it, I have NOT heard one bit of negativity about it. Just stop it. That's enough.
There are parts I don't get, like how does some slight frost make it an everlasting winter? It takes technological explanation and the answers not even important. Then she can suddenly make dresses, castles and monsters? What is she, the Ice King?
The characters are stupid, like that Duke, Olaf and I think the main 'villain' is just disappointing for me.
The songs aren't anything I like, I only watched it because it had a slight entertainment factor. I thought it was alright, but after seeing Les Miserables I really liked it and I thought it was better as both a musical and a film set back in time. The songs aren't any good, they get trapped inside the memories of your brain and haunt you for the rest of your life. There's too much singing and I think Les Miserables had much ...more - BlazikenBro
But there is 33 movie mistakes and I hate frozen and I am 9 I try to point out some of the movie mistakes but when I tell them. Someone will hate me. That's why I have very few friends
Just Plain Overrated, Can't Put It Anywhere else On the List - VideoGamefan5V 196 Comments
I liked this film, but never felt "attached" to it somehow like most reviewers state. Maybe I have low emotions, but I felt no sorrow over touching scenes such as Mufasa's death, since there are plenty of other movies out there that were more poignant to me, specifically "The Boy in Striped Pajamas". Just about the only thing that I found appealing from the movie was the songs, particularly "The Circle of Life".
Simba portrays himself as a protagonist who one day wants more than nothing to be king, and then the next regrets everything in his life like a piece of cake, although he of course was not the culprit of his father's death. In a sense, he doesn't seem to have a strong will inside himself to be king for the majority of the movie, due to the realities of life that Mufasa teaches him in his childhood, and his brief abandoning of his time with the pride while in the jungle. His transformation into realizing his role in protecting the pride is ...more
While, the Lion King is a good movie it is FAR from being one of Disney's best. There are huge problems with it. Like the main character, who is the most boring and generic thing in the whole movie. When compared to Anna, the protagonist of Frozen, there's just no contest, Anna is much more entertaining. Another problem is the music, most of it sucks. Be prepared is great, and I like circle of life, but everything else is just annoying. Once again compared to Frozen there's just no contest Frozen wins by a landslide, every single song is amazing. One other huge flaw is the botched up message. So Simba learns to face his past, but when he does he starts to lose, and every thing he was taught before is suddenly working against him. Nobody even helps him or gets backs him up much until they find out he didn't kill his father. So I guess the moral is never take responsibility for what you've done, because nobody will help you unless it turns out you really didn't commit the crime. How is ...more - Tacosarelife
MY GOSH! This movie is so overrated. Even more overrated than frozen. People never shut up about saying it's the best movie ever/ best Disney movie ever and to forget all the other Disney movies. There are tons of Disney movies that are forgotten but are really good because of this movie like Great Mouse Detective and Robin Hood. They keep saying no other Disney movie will ever be better. They really just need to shut up. Beauty and the Beast was so much better than this movie.
Its overrated, and for good reason. - GabriolaV 65 Comments
It's overrated in the sense that for quite a while Stitch was anywhere and everywhere, just like Elsa is nowadays.
"How is this an overrated movie? Last time I checked, it wasn't really that great of a movie."
Yeah, but try telling everyone who acts as if this was Disney's best movie ever and those who even go so far to say how "underrated" it is that.
There was only one original song, and it wasn't that special. Every single other song in the movie was an existing Elvis song or a remake thereof. Nothing against the King of Rock 'n Roll, but memorable original songs that are unforgettable really make a difference when it comes to Disney movies.
The movie was boring to be honest. Everyone likes it because "STITCH! ".V 13 Comments
Sure, the plot was good, the premise is good, but is it really THAT GOOD? No. The execution was horrible, the comedy was eh, to be honest, I do not recommend this film. The film doesn't have memorable songs and doesn't have memorable characters. Honestly, go check it out, but I do not recommend this film at all. Also, for Frozen people and haters, yes it is overrated, but also, it is hated as much. I could argue that Frozen plots and premise is worse than Tangled, but its execution was AMAZING. The humor and characters were memorable. The songs...*hold it*. I know many people will hate me for it, but as much as I hate people singing let it go always, when I first hear the song of Frozen, I came back home and began to continue singing it.
So to sum it up, a good plot and beginning may be good, but that doesn't sum up everything.
And, to make you guys happy, yes Tangled is a good film, but it's just overrated. Which is what the list is trying to say. Hope you enjoy this ...more
Tangled is an awesome movie. Its much better than the original tale of Rapunzel and this movie is underrated not overrated. And Rapunzel is cute and innocent not ugly you idiot commentor. I bet you're ugly and a loser. Rapunzel is also very intelligent. She charts stars and knows a lot of skills. She can save herself quite well using her frying pan. She is also a fast learner and kind at heart.
Don't call somebody ugly for their own opinion. He/She was expressing their opinion, so just respect it. You need to stop out and face reality, people can express what they want to say. Don't make fun of them for that. I love Tangled and all it's characters, but I don't care if somebody says, "Rapunzel is ugly." Or "I hate this movie." I don't care. It's their opinion. Don't waste your time yelling at them.
Tangled is a fantastic movie! Who put this here?
Just because it says "overrated " doesn't mean it's bad. Or it would say "worst" Disney movies. - AnnaOfArendelle332
I don't know this is nothing compared to frozen and the plot was really good and the characters were good and funny-Aly CullenV 35 Comments
The most overrated piece of crap I have ever watched in my entire 14 years of living. The singers can't sing for crap, and the actors are horrible. Then next they go ahead and make all of these other cheap rip offs of this movie like: Camp Rock, Lemonade Mouth and crap like that. Even worse... THE THEN MAKE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, AND 3.
Bad actors, horrible annoying music, and rip off of all of the half decent Disney Channel movies in its time. This movie is an overrated annoying piece of crap.
Just so you know guys, overrated means something gets too much praise, high school doesn't and shouldn't have any praise. - poopmckenzie
I Can't Believe Wreck-It Ralph Is Above This, This Needs To Be In The top 5 - VideoGamefan5V 16 Comments
Why does it matter if this movie has a plot or not? The reason people love this movie and praise it is because of the fantastic animation and great classical music and how they are molded together. This movie is not overrated.
Yeah, I find it underrated! People hate it because it doesn't have the same storyline as other Disney animated films, or it's boring. I found it A LITTLE boring at times but I still thought it was phenomenal.
I really think that Fantasia is an amazing piece of art and that it is an incredible achievement for in cinema's history. As amazing as it looks and sounds, it is one of the worst Disney movies when viewed as a narrative respective. I love Fantasia for it's visuals, but I feel people overrate the movie sometimes.
This movie is a piece of art. How dare you call it overrated! You don't understand what an accomplishment this movie was, obviously, if you thought it overrated. Shame on you. - BKAllmighty
Yeah, does it really matter if it doesn't have a story or plot to it. People probably hate it to hate classical music. - jack2244
People probably only hate this to hate classical music. - jack2244V 7 Comments
Very overrated and not a very good movie at all. First off the only reason why its considered "good" because it saved Disney from a financial slump and has a few catchy songs. Moreover this is a move that teaches girls AND boys that your only has good has your looks. The main character, Ariel, gives up her only talent for a boy she only like because he is handsome. This movie sucks.
They changed the story for a reason. It would've been too depressing for Ariel to kill herself or for the price to betray her.
Never liked the story. A girl giving up her whole self (family and talent, which is basically all she had) for a boy she didn't even know. She only fell for him for his looks. Only thing good about this movie are the songs. But yeah, this movie is so overrated.
Ariel is gross, she wears a strapless bra that shows a lot of her cleavage like what the heck!V 7 Comments

For the person who called this movie the worst movie ever, you're a retard. You must be some brat who's a fan of that overrated garbage known as Frozen. Grow up. You don't know comedy gold if it hit you in the face.
The only overrated disney movie now is Frozen. the others are okay or underrated
I don't see how this movie could be overrated. It had Robin Williams who in my opinion was the greatest actor to ever live.
How Is It overrated, it deserves all the praise it gets - VideoGamefan5V 13 Comments
How is this overrated? It's a good film! I didn't like the idea of the movie at first (a computer programming leaving its directive because it has feelings is not scientifically possible) but when I saw the movie, I liked the characters, the story, and the plot twist at the end! All the different video games in the film are so unique and make for some quirky moments when they collide. So, no go for me. Definitely not overrated. I think it should be talked about more!
Overrated doesn't mean it's bad, it just means it gets too much praise. - AnnaOfArendelle332
Alright, this pisses me off. This was an awesome movie. For those who didn't like it, they don't know a good movie if it hit them in the face. Also, if you hate this movie, you're no friend of mine.
Who put this on here?! This is probably the most underrated movie I've ever seen. My dad would be disappointed to see this movie on the list. This is his favorite children's movie. Brave and frozen are the two most overrated movies I've ever seen.
VideoGamefan5, I get that you and 99.999% of everyone on this site hate Frozen, but stop blaming Frozen fans for list items you don't agree with. I don't hate Frozen that much but I'm not a fan, and I didn't put this on here but have to declare it overrated because of the character Turbo and the huge amount of creepy fangirls he has acquired.V 33 Comments
Its just one of my top 10 favourite disney movies
This is one of the most overrated Disney movies of all time. It's less overrated than Frozen, but this movie has a very boring plotline, and Belle is just useless as a heroine. She doesn't save anybody, and just manages to get the beast in a lot of trouble.
This movie is less overrated than "the absolute average mess" that is Frozen, but it is definitely among the MOST OVERRATED Disney films. Every time it was on during my childhood, it produced "yawns" from me. Belle is such a "static character" who does virtually nothing at all, save "read a few books," "wear some pretty gowns," and look "pretty." Belle saves her dad exactly one time, but in the end, Belle totally leaves the beast to deal with her stalker (Gaston) and the mob-- she basically has a big mouth and gives away their entire location! Belle is such a tattletale! I never saw how Belle saves the beast, either. It is ultimately the enchantress's spell that saves the beast. After all, Belle watches the beast die right in front of her. This movie was one of Disney's "meh" movies for me. I find that people really flock to it in droves, just like they did with Frozen, while other movies-- Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Hercules,Tarzan, Mulan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Atlantis, the ...more - 785

This is actually an underrated movie - hurjelert
In my opinion, this is one the most underrated Disney movies. It has the best soundtrack(tied with some but never better than.) Meg is unique. No other Disney princess can come close to her sass level. (I love them, but I love Meg just as much.) The villain is my favorite Disney villain ever. He is sassy too. Hercules is sweet, clumsy, and determined. I love this movie. Plus, with "That's Phil's boy" this movie is magical. Also, Meg (who is actually a princess) isn't an official Disney princess. She marries Hercules(I checked there was a spin off thing where it is revealed they got married officially). Hercules is the son of the King of the gods. So, I'd say this is so underrated Meg never got her rightful title as an official Disney princess.
This is one of my favourite Disney movies,first of James woods as Hades was perfect! I liked the characters and as a person who usually find that main female character extremely annoying I loved Meg and she became one of my favourite Disney characters ever. The songs were beautiful and the movie has one of my favourite soundtracks out of all the Disney movies. Honestly I think this movies doesn't get enough praise. So why is it on most overrated Disney movies, last time I checked it was pretty underrated...
It doesn't follow the Greek myths AT ALLV 12 Comments
A kid can still know who Jim Hawkins is without seeing this movie that deserves to rot in obscurity and people need to stop abusing the term "underrated" towards. Disney did make a more direct (live action) Treasure Island movie, also there's the Muppets version. Or, you know, THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL BOOK.
It's not underrated at all, quite the opposite. It's boring and pointless.
Yes, this movie is far from underrated. And stop pairing Jim with Ariel!

The Plot is overrated and the Jones are forgettable, its not a bad film, but not as good as finding nemo though

This Should be Number 1 It's So Overrated - VideoGamefan5
Come On, I'm Getting To This To Number One - VideoGamefan5V 5 Comments
Too much emphasis on sexism, heroine whines about her lot in life early on and ONLY thinks to do something about it when her father is summoned to war, heroine spends most of the movie out over being discovered, annoying sidekick who was later reincarnated as the even more annoying Donkey from the "Shrek" franchise.
And people not shutting up about how great or how perfect this movie supposedly is puts it out of "underrated" territory.
Some of the songs are good, but other than that I feel the only reason this movie has gotten so much more popular now is mostly because of PC culture. I guess I'm one of the few people out there who watches movies to hear a good story, good characters, and good dialogue. Yeah, there's some of that here, but it's mostly overshadowed by how much they're trying to push feminism onto kids. I'm not saying I'm for or against feminism, but the general concept of a family movie (especially a Disney movie) fueled mostly with the objective of pushing a political movement I find absolutely absurd. Like I said before, I don't hate everything about it. But the sudden uprising of third-wave feminism that has made this movie way more popular than it's content really merits, then I can't help but consider this the most overrated Disney movie ever. (also, curse you whoever wrote "I'll Make a Man Out of You". I'll never get that song out of my head as long as I live.)
How about doing a little more research on the source material, the poem/legend this was based on? It wasn't about Mulan proving herself or finally doing something right, it was her simply doing what she had to. Family honor and feminism had nothing to do with it. Had Disney stuck closer to the original source, the movie would have been a lot more worthy of the praise every things it "needs".
Just like the princess and the frog, this movie is only popular because the heroine is a different ethnicity. And am I the only one who finds it odd that they made a movie about Asian culture but had Eddie Murphy in it?V 15 Comments
This film is not a bad film at all. It's a conclusion to a story we've all grown up loving. As sad and dark as it was, I think it was needed to push the audience to a place where we have to feel like we might lose our beloved characters forever. We have to feel in order for it to make an impact. I personally love this film because it made me uncomfortable. Pixar had the guts to do that, and I applaud them for it. Overrated? Only because it made an impact on a captive audience. And really the most talked about moments would be when we thought the toys were going to die, and the end when Andy was giving the toys away to the little girl. Those moments SHOULD be talked about because they are emotionally driven moments that affect us as fans of the first 2.
Don't get me wrong, this movie was great and I really like it, but I hate when people say it was the best of the three, it really isn't as good as the first, and it is going to be a challenge for any animated movie to be better, but it was still a very well done and worthwhile movie.
Won the oscar for Best Animated Picture over the FAR superior How to Train Your Dragon, and frankly is one of the worst Pixar outings ever. It's almost completely joyless in comparison to practically all other Pixar films, especially the first Toy Story.
This One Deserves It's Praise To Be Honest, well I'm Not Sure - VideoGamefan5V 13 Comments
If I wanted a two hour lecture on political correctness, I'd spend those two hours on Tumblr and Facebook.
Animal puns, washed up has-been pop star as the hot thing in this animal world, annoying overdone political satire, the fourth Disney movie in a row with a "surprise" villain... nope, doesn't deserve to be the best animated movie of all time like everyone's making it out to be.
Only out a week and it's already overrated. I don't watch movies for blatant social commentary.
I Thought finding dory had the biggest animated film box office opening - VideoGamefan5V 24 Comments
I hate that this is movie is on here! Whats so wrong with showing holidays in movies! This movie is good! I can't believe that someone put this on here! It has got everything most people like. It has holidays, heart, and love. The animation rocks so do the actors. This movie has made one of the best songs for Halloween, it has great heroes and villains.
This movie has become a franchise when it really shouldn't have. The movie is... Interesting. But people are WAY TOO OBSESSED WITH IT.
To me, I don't find this movie overrated at all really. Sure it's very well-known and popular around, but I don't see it as an overrated movie.. unlike frozen that is.
This movie made me shut the T.V. off and shoot myself. JK. But seroisly this movie is so overrated. It makes no sense and sucks so badly. - rk00006V 9 Comments
Overrated because the "representation matters" crowd felt the need to support it and push its "greatness" because in their minds not doing so meant Disney would make more "people of color" princesses. Meanwhile, ignoring the skin color of its heroine, this movie tried too hard to be "modern", the songs weren't that great, and ALL the characters (black, white, not human) were varying degrees of annoying or unappealing.
Everyone keeps bringing up how Tiana worked two jobs and was so "focused" and "driven" making her this wonderful, perfect role model and so much better than any other Disney princess (except maybe Mulan). Thing is, had Tiana been white none of that would have meant squat to the same people shouting her greatness from the rooftops.
Unfortunately, people always feels the need to cry "racism" every time someone says anything even slightly negative about this movie.
If Tiana wasn't black nobody would give a crap about this movieV 5 Comments
