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

Okay... I really hate this movie. I'm one in 50 people to hate this. It's a really bad movie with such an unimaginative name and setting. First of, dinosaur cartoon movies are old stuff. Second, the title sounds like a direct to video unpopular cartoon voice. And third, this film fails completely. The dino's are bland as bread, the voices suck, everything is cruelty to the main character, it felt like a rip off of Land before Time, nothing goes anywhere and Arlo is so generic and annoying.

However, I have some good thoughts of this. The backgrounds are amazing but the dino's animation tends to ruin the atmos, the T-Rexes were creative and funny, it does have a pretty good message, Spot was the only character I like and wished he got a spin-off, and this film isn't as bad as Cars 2.

But, no. Really. It's awful. I so prefer Inside Out than this and why was this released on the same year? No wonder it looks rushed.

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

2 Shrek the Third

I heard that Jacksfilms and Schaffrillas Productions said that why this sequel fails so hard.

The movie just get boring to watch way was this movie made it has bad casting

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

3 Phineas & Ferb: Star Wars

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

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.

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

That is the worst crossover I can think of - FerrariDude64

It's not a crossover, it's a parody. It even states this at the beginning of the episode! - LarkwingFlight

4 Cars 2

5/5, guilty pleasure.

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.

5 Mickey's House of Villains

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

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?!

its ok

6 Minions

My sixth grade science teacher was obsessed with this movie it was all over her classroom, she would make corny references, and, even in sixth grade I thought it was the dumbest movie ever, and that this teacher was a tiny little kid trapped inside of an adults body, this movie is the most garbage movie. My friend found a thing somewhere online that said "in the next movie the minions will sing Havana, but instead of Havana, they would say banana, its cringey but it's so true"

This is obviously a run-in to keep on the merchandise of Minions, which marketing is almost as big as Frozen. I want to like this film, but it has no real story. It's just Minions roaming around the big city.

I'd be honest, I actually want to see another Despicable Me movie (wait for it) where it revolves around the girls who are adults. Think of Toy Story 3 where the kid character is all grown-up. Margo could be a university student and might run in with Antonio; Edith is a karate student but due to her mischievous demeanour could be disobedient to adults; as for Agnes, a college student perhaps and she can see her old unicorn in her closet and remember her 'unicorn-obsession' phase.

Seriously, make it happen.

You could say that it's good, you could say that it's bad. To me, I thinks it's more in the middle. The songs are awesome, and the minions are cute. I just don't like Scarlett Overkill. It just seems to obvious from the start of the Minions' employment that she would end up being the rain in the parade. - DCprincess_29

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 am happy that this overrated movie is in this list because I hate this film! This film is most disappointing Dreamworks film of all time! I hate this film because my mom and sister have an obsession on this sick film! How To Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda franchises are better than this disappointing movie!

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.

8 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!

9 Ice Age: Continental Drift

Ruined The Franchise's Reputation And legacy

This is when Ice Age went downhill and unoriginal.

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

10 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!

The Newcomers

? Incredibles 2

The Contenders

11 Tekken: Blood Vengeance

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

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

12 Alice In Wonderland

Spoiler alert and theory: Alice was tripping on LSD the whole time in wonderland while her sister wasn't looking. - DCprincess_29

Why is this on here!?

This was a cool movie!

He means the new one.

13 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

14 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.

It is one of the worst animated films of all time

15 Cinderella II: Dreams Come True

The 1st and 3rd are better - Maddox121

16 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 was for the most part an excellent movie - Ari00

17 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.

18 Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

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


19 Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

This was a really good movie. - RalphBob

At least the show was good.

This movie is stupid and shucks

Worst Nickelodeon movie ever! It's a huge disgrace to the show

20 Hell & Back

Holy Crap.

21 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

I don't actually mind it but it's when kids in public start singing let it go that really pisses my off. And how does the let it go original music video have over 20,000,000 views?! This needs to stop. Hey Disney can you think of something new instead of singing, a princess and a bad guy please just do something new

22 Treasure Planet

This was an amazing movie, people are out of their damn minds

This film got bomb at the box office

Man, treasure planet was my jam. - Jackamalio

I thought it was great! - LarkwingFlight

23 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

Bad animation.

Its plot is so funking butifal m8

24 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.

25 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 like the fourth one, it's way better than the third one.

28 Planes

Worse than cars 2

29 Ice Age: a Mammoth Christmas


30 Turbo

What about Turbo Fast? - WarioMan

31 Doogal

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.

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

The UK version is better which was The Magic Roundabout.

The US version has been low captured which was Doogal.

32 Ice Age: The Meltdown

Much better than Collision Course. - ad48

33 Cricket On the Hearth
34 Fantasia

I loved Fantasia. Who put this on the list?

35 Ice Age: Collision Course

I hate Peaches's new hairstyle and I also hate space stuff and Julian - RedTheGremlin

We Knew This Would Be Awful


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

36 Cinderella III: a Twist In Time
37 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

Lol Picahontas is rude in this one


38 The Emoji Movie

I can't even keep a straight face trying to say that this movie was pure "cinematic experience". I can't even say that without feeling like I'm lying. THE MOVIE IS ABOUT A EMOJI WHO CAN'T EMOJI! WHAT'S NEXT? A MOVIE CALLED THE FIDGET SPINNER MOVIE. IT'S ABOUT A FIDGET SPINNER THAT CAN'T SPIN. bruh. - DCprincess_29

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

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

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

39 Tripping the Rift: The Movie

Are you kidding me?! I love that show. I will see the movie after when I watch all the episodes.

40 The Lego Movie

What?! This movie is actually very good!

The guy STOLE the girl, the "finds his purpose" plot is overdone and trite, the purpose was trite. "Perfect" my rear!

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

41 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

F this movie.


42 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

43 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.

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 Hotel Transylvania 2

Stupid kid and Mavis gets really annoying. - RedTheGremlin

46 Rio 2

What exactly did this film establish that the first Rio didn't? Aside from the Ice Age 2 twist. Found this very unnecessary.

This one is was more cringe-worthy than the first one. Every five minutes Jewel says something cringey. This is the cringiest animated movie ever! - RedTheGremlin

Shut Up!

Worst sequal I ever seen

47 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.

48 The Wild
49 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.

50 Home On The Range

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

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.

Favorite childhood movie
