Top Ten Most Disappointing Animated Movies of All Time


The Top Ten

1 The Good Dinosaur

The first real bomb from Pixar, and for a good reason. If you've seen any dinosaur movie before (and I legitimately mean ANY dinosaur movie) you've seen the plot of The Good Dinosaur. It's just so bland and uninspired, and for Pixar to accomplish that is very saddening. - Jackamalio

Ultimate disappointment. First of all, humans acting like dogs makes no sense! Why couldn't they talk and act like people? I would love to see that bond, similar to Pete's Dragon. The Boy and Dog plot is so overused these days and now the human is the dog and the dog is the boy. The cartoon character designs doesn't fit in the serious tone and realistic backgrounds. I had high hopes for this movie, and it flopped. Arlo is so annoying and a cliche main character. I wish Spot would have been the main character instead and he should have been able to talk. Give the character who I ONLY care about in the movie the ability to speak so I can connect with him, not the cliche idiotic dinosaur.

The reason why they can't talk like humans, is because they are cavemen. - TristGamer

I want to like this movie...I really do but it's just so bland and uninspired I can't say it's good. But than again, it's not terrible. - KingFab

I Love This Movie And Thunderclap is my favorite

2 Shrek the Third

Throws all the heart of the first two out of the window for a bunch of lame jokes.

Crap movie takes everything the first two movies and messes it up

This is the worst piece of crap I have ever seen in my life. I watched it when I was a little kid and I don't even want to watch it again in my life. EVER!

It was boring.

3 Minions

Completely disappointed when this movie came out. The minions are cute but this movie proves that the minions are not able to maintain a stable movie plot that is actually funny. The only time I actually watch this garbage is when I have to force myself through it just so that I can get to the fantastic Despicable Mes. This movie is so boring that when I saw it in theaters I actually got bored. I have never gotten bored at a movie theater. This movie is pretty bad and it did not deserve to reach the $1 billion gross milestone.all this movie does is show you that you need Gru and the girls and everyone to actually have a good Despicable Me franchise movie.

I never saw this, but I saw both despicable me movies. They're funny in the background but a whole movie couldn't be very good, and most of the people commenting on this list are older kids or teenagers or young adults, and the humor they use is very childish and so it can get old when it's constant.

I didn't expect much from this movie. But what I did expect is that it would just be a ridiculous cash grab with awful humor and annoying minion screaming for 90 minutes. I was right. No wonder people hate Minions (both the movie AND the characters). 3/10 - naFrovivuS

Minions are stupid. Just stupid. Needless to say, I saw this movie's failure smack DAB in the middle of the trailer. Boo! I cannot believe kids like this crap...

4 Cars 2

It was okay... There's nothing special here it's definitely not able to live up to average Pixar storylines but it's not terrible.

This movie wasn't that bad, it was Disappointing, turning a racing movie into 007 without the sexual parts.

This is the only Pixar movie I actually hate.

Just terrible

5 Phineas & Ferb: Star Wars

I understand that Phineas and Ferb is a great show and stuff. But seriously, those crossover with other franchises are just too dumb and unnecessary.

It bothers me how many people take this as a crossover. It's a parody of Star Wars, which is something that even state at the beginning of the episode! Maybe it isn't great, but it sure is better than most of the movies it's above on this list. - LarkwingFlight

This movie sucks it's so dumb and an insult to the star wars trilogy - VideoGamefan5

This was just plain B-A-D

6 The Angry Birds Movie

It looked good, but it was basically like every kids movie out there. There are good guys, they live their lives, bad guys come, hero is a nobody, they fight, good guy looks dead, everyone cries and gives up, then he comes back, everyone is happy the end

What? Good movie. It was funny. The birds didn't know that "The Pool Of Wisdom" was Mighty Eagle's pee pool. Bomb and Chuck were swimming in it and spitting it into each other's mouth. It was so funny and graphic. Mighty Eagle was like " Mm." "The pool of wisdom? " Red asked. "More like the pool of wiss.

That's one of the least funny things I have ever heard in my life. - RalphBob

It was cute enough, not my favorite, but not disappointing. I went with my friend, brother, mom, and her friend and we all enjoyed it as a silly kid movie.

HELL NO! This is one of my favorite animated movies of all time!

7 Ice Age: Continental Drift

Ruined The Franchise's Reputation And legacy

This Is When Ice Age Got Ruined

The whole time I was rooting for Grutt to win because Manny's character is RUBBISH in this one

This is when Ice Age went downhill and unoriginal.

8 The Lego Ninjago Movie

Because the first 2 lego movies were actually good, this one I heard wasn't as good as the other 2 - VideoGamefan5

This Movie is BAD!

9 Finding Dory

I usually don't really have expectations for these kinds of movies, but I loved "Finding Nemo" when I was little, so when I found out they were making a sequel, I had pretty high hopes that it would be just as good, but although it's definitely not a bad movie, it doesn't even compare to "Finding Nemo". It's just my opinion though. Some people will disagree which is fine, but please be respectful about it.

This movie didn't even come out yet, did it? - RalphBob

This movie is a bit SAD, you know when Dory meets her parents and my favorite character is Hank, the octopus! - Victoryboy

This is what I waited 10 years for... dissapointment

I liked this movie. It was fun and cute! Sure, it's objectively bad, but sometimes a bad movie is better than a boring movie. - LarkwingFlight

Honestly this was a guilty pleasure for me I found it cute. But I can see so many people hating this It would probably not appeal to older kids/adults and they wasted quite a lot of good voices. Rihanna was in this! Steve Martin was in this! Sheldon as an alien was in this! I like it and I don't really care if people don't like it but I can see why people don't like this

So cute, but I can understand why older kids/ people find it a bit annoying.

My friends made me watch this movie over and over again...

The Contenders

11 Mickey's House of Villains

Well, I do like Disney Villains... is it ANY good? I haven't seen it before.

This one was good but it more was like a compilation of cartoons and such than an actual film. - SailorSedna

This movie is awesome l love villians

It's a Halloween movie special!
The leader and the antagonist was Jafar?
At least The Queen is the first villain of the first Disney movie.
But why Jafar?! Why?!

12 Mars Needs Moms

The kid looks ugly.

Animation was TERRIBLE! - Victoryboy

From the trailers you could already see how horrible this is - 445956

This movie is good

13 Foodfight!

This isn't disappointing. No one actually expected to enjoy it. - LarkwingFlight

Was anyone honestly expecting this movie to be good?

I seriously could only watch 5 minutes of this garbage before I wanted to fall asleep.

Rapsittie street kids has a lower IMDb score but it's not as famous

14 Ratchet & Clank

Before you see this movie, don't base your opinion on Rotten Tomatoes rating.

It isn't an Oscar winner, but it's not as bad as the critics said.

15 Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

This was a really good movie. - RalphBob

At least the show was good.

This movie is stupid and shucks

No the worst Nickelodeon movie is:

16 Alice In Wonderland

Why is this on here!?

This was a cool movie!

He means the new one.

17 Hell & Back

Holy Crap.

18 Ice Age: The Meltdown

Much better than Collision Course. - ad48

19 Frozen

Really, it's not that bad. All the hate started when someone (probably popular or famous) said it was bad, and people, not being able to agree with their own opinions, followed along. Sure the fandom is terrible, but the movie itself is pretty good (except Let it Go, that sucked).

Of all movies, why is this all the way down here?! And why is Spirited Away above Frozen?! Spirited Away rules, Frozen drools! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This shouldn't be here. I loved the movie when I first saw it. The only reason everyone hates it is because of the huge fanbase surrounding it. - LarkwingFlight

Great, just what we need, another sibling yin yang….

20 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

Bad animation.

Its plot is so funking butifal m8

21 Happy Feet Two

It wasn't very disappointing.

Alecia Moore & Common sucks as Gloria & Seymour.

They act annoying, cheesy & disgraceful.

Brittany Murphy & Fat Joe sounds more better.

22 Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

I think that Belle's Magical World was way way worse. - SuperBananagengar


23 Tekken: Blood Vengeance

What is this? I have NEVER seen this before..

Only the final battle is great, then the movie is really boring and non sense - Ale99

24 Planes

Worse than cars 2

25 Cinderella II: Dreams Come True
26 Shrek Forever After

What a horrible way to end the Shrek series... - Knucklewood

It's way better than Shrek The Third

I was only nine year old, I loved Shrek so much, I had all the merchandise and movies- up until the fourth one of course.

I don't mind the shrek movies but Shrek 2 is my favourite

27 Turbo

What about Turbo Fast? - WarioMan

28 Shark Tale

Really Stupid Pop Culture Reference Cash Grab - ChiefMudkip

Really dumb and boring and pacing is SO SLOW

How come it got a bad time for some reason?

If the movie is bad why got nomilned a oscar

29 Doogal

Wasn't this the dog from the magic roundabout - milmcgirl

No he is not the dog from the magic roundabout, the dog from the magic roundabout is called Dougal.

His name is Dougal, he was voiced by Robbie Williams, the name of the movie was The Magic Roundabout. This is a stupid yank movie with farting, pop culture, not spelling the dogs name properly. They made a movie in the 70s called Dougal and the Blue Cat. The original Magic Roundabout came out way before I was born (1965-1977) but I knew what it was when I was a kid.

The UK version is better which was The Magic Roundabout.

The US version has been low captured which was Doogal.

30 Cars

What's wrong with this movie? It's a really good movie!

These poor idiots who think disappointing means bad. - LarkwingFlight

Take that out of the list! 😡 This is my favorite movie

31 Ice Age: Collision Course

We Knew This Would Be Awful


People need to stop putting non existing yet movies to this list...
Who may not be disappointing!

32 Monster University

This is way better than monsters inc. this doesn't deserve to be in this list.

33 The Wild
34 The Lego Movie

How is this a dissappointing movie. Perfect ending. The guy gets the girl, finds his purpose and the universe is no longer frozen by the end.

This Movie is incredibly disappointing. It stars a annoying Chris Pratt, who stars in a film which feels like a 90 minute commercial. The only good part of the film is the stylized animation

35 The Nut Job

Cheesy jokes and a bland plot with forgettable characters... That's the formula for the Nut Job (oh and don't forget to add an unnecessary dash of Gangnam Style just to add even more of a bitter taste to this slop! ) Warm for 3 minutes and have this trash literally shoved down your throat! Enjoy!

This movie looked okay but it turned out to be absolute garbage.

Incredibly disappointing.

So mean spirited.

36 Rio 2

Shut Up!

Worst sequal I ever seen

37 Monster House
38 Antz
39 The Emoji Movie

Nobody even expected this to be good. In fact we all expected it to be the worst movie of the decade. - UltimateCraig

This film was nothing but a generic cash grab of a movie.

We knew this one would bomb!

Didn't it make you said that it did bomb.

40 Ice Age: a Mammoth Christmas


41 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

Lol Picahontas is rude in this one


42 Chicken Little

It's a very cruel, unfunny movie probably the worst animated god the cgi is so bad

This movie wasn't disappointing... It looked bad to begin with

Chicken little getted abused daily because he thought the sky was falling.

43 Cricket On the Hearth
44 The Secret Life of Pets

I Liked It (Please Don't Kill Me For This)

It spoiled the best jokes in the trailer.

I thought the plot would be a bit more interesting! It was average. I just thought it would be a funny compilation of pets doing stupid but funny stuff.

45 Smurfs: The Lost Village

Actually, It's not very good.

I rather Watch the live action movies every day then watch this piece of bull(beep)

Wow, Just Wow

This movie is not fun like I said it before.

I'm not gonna recommend this movie.

It's terrible.

The CGI looks bad.

46 The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata

I didn't even know this existed - Knucklewood

Oh come on this is amazing ;-;

This movie and the rest of the TLK franchise sucked big time.

47 Home On The Range

Because of the Wild West, I expected this to be a great movie, even for Disney standards. But no, Home on the Range turned out to be an overly zany flick that should be rated Y for Youth and has very phoned-in attempts. I've still seen even worse Disney movies. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Worst Disney movie I saw in my life.

I HATE THIS MOVIE! It was a major disappointment from disney.

Agh. This movie was not bad, but horrible by Disney standards.

48 Norm of the North

We all knew this was gonna be bad. - RalphBob

I expect I would not hear somebody say that he or she likes this movie, not even a bit.

I hate this movie so much. Don't even get me started on the fish tank, plant, or fart scenes.

It felt bad

Thankfully they made a mistake in the movie box

They put in scarface instead of this
