Top 10 Disney Movies that are Good but Overrated

There are movies that are pretty good but also get way too much praise. So let's talk about good Disney movies that are overrated!

The Top Ten

1 Moana

Moana is the newest Disney film and I thought it was pretty good. But not great! Main reason being it is very cliché! I get it's a Disney movie and wants to be similar to other Disney films, but when it uses too many Disney tropes, it gets a little distracting. This movie has a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes! I've read the reviews and people are praising this movie as a masterpiece! People call it one of the best Disney films of all time! But it has the same problems that people hate about Frozen and Brave! Many people have complained that those movies are predictable and cliché but let it slide with Moana! At least Frozen had some originality to it! Honestly, this movie is not as good as Frozen. The songs in Moana are awesome and the characters are great but the story is pretty weak. I am really hoping that either Zootopia or Kubo gets the Oscar! Maybe even Finding Dory because this movie has serious problems! But again, I really like this movie and I might watch it again eventually. - MegaSoulhero

Well, where should I start?
I fell in love with this movie. It's smart and funny, the plot is not overcomplicated. The music is awesome (still humming "You're welcome"). And the characters. Don't get me started on the characters. I love the personalities, their motivations and just about everything! (I mean it's probably not perfect but for me it's close enough).
There I said it. (Or wrote it? Well, whatever) You're welcome.

2 Frozen

I like this movie and I consider it one of my favorite Disney films! But is Disney seriously still making a big deal about it after three years? I know it made billions of dollars but it's not as good as films like Lion King and Aladdin. This movie has gotten so popular to the point where people start to hate it. I mean, sure people give reasons but then they praise movies that have the same problems. Like Moana! Frozen's oversaturation doesn't exactly make it a bad film. Some people go as far as to saying it's the worst Disney film ever. Yeah there are really people who think Home on the Range is better than Frozen. Frozen has great songs, great characters, great animation, and a decent story. But it has really gotten out of hand. - MegaSoulhero

I love this movie and I always will. It's just that Disney shoved it down our throats so much to the point where it became mainstream to hate on it. In all actuality, it's really hard to call Frozen a terrible movie. What people really hate is the marketing for it, not the actual film. I'm just hoping that Disney doesn't obnoxiously promote the crap out of Moana. We don't need another great Disney animated musical to be ruined by its overexposure. - phillysports

A pretty good movie overall, but quite overrated. Still, the hatred it has received is mostly unwarranted. - Mrveteran

Frozen is okay. The story is alright, some of the songs are nice, and the animation is really good. But it doesn't deserve all of the praise it gets. - Gabriola

3 Wall-E

A lot of people say this is one of the best Pixar movies! Some people say this is THE best Pixar movie! I personally don't see what the big deal is. I just want to point out that there are only two bad Pixar films. And this is NOT one of them! I like it but it has problems. I thought the beginning of the film was pretty cute. But it started to go downhill when Wall-E and Eve got on the ship. I really like the scenes involving Wall-E and Eve. The part when they are floating in space is my favorite in the whole movie! But how was that plant they had able to survive in space? Also, considering that the Earth looked like trash, it didn't make sense for the captain to make the decision of going back! Yes, they have a plant but that's not enough! I feel like AUTO was the real hero of the film. - MegaSoulhero

This Film Is Good - VideoGamefan5

This movie was good,but not great.
Honestly,if I see peoples saying things like "This is the best pixar animation ever! "
I'm just literally gonna cringe. - Duoprism

4 The Little Mermaid

This movie has great songs and great scenery, but here's the thing. I hate Ariel! She has absolutely NO redeeming qualities! I can't believe she disobeyed her father, gave up her voice, and put everyone in danger just to be with some dude! She is very selfish! Lol. Get it? - MegaSoulhero

Also, King Triton is much better than Princess Ariel. I am glad that Princess Arial is not the main focus of the movie. He is mainly sexy (heck, maybe even sexier than his daughters) because of his voice, hulky body and long face! - The Ultimate Daredevil

What do you mean it's overrated? This movie is a classic to people. This movie was legendary. - JimmyFarrow

5 Lilo & Stitch

Lilo & Stitch is a cute movie I guess. It shows the relationship of two sisters who live in Hawaii. Their connection is so relatable! And it wouldn't be complete without an alien experiment crashing to Earth! I like Stitch but it seems like this movie has two different plots that shouldn't go together. I feel like this movie's popularity mainly comes from Stitch. Everyone loves Stitch! Understandable since he's awesome. But I mostly like it for it's moral and setting. As well as some of the characters. Lilo and Stitch 2, however, is pretty bad! - MegaSoulhero

6 Finding Dory

Why Isn't This Higher - VideoGamefan5

Holy Cow! - VideoGamefan5

7 Cinderella (2015)

I really loved the original Cinderella movie! The 2015 live action remake was good too but I don't like how it objectifies women. Also, the main character, Ella, is awful! She constantly gets tormented by her stepsisters and stepmother and she doesn't do a thing about it! She has many chances to fight back but she always sees the good in people! But the scenery and effects make it hard for me to hate this movie. Plus, the prince is actually pretty likeable. Which is good because he was VERY unlikeable in the original! And I'm glad that the mice don't talk. This is not a bad movie but I still slightly prefer the original. - MegaSoulhero

8 Zootopia

"the only reason why I like this it is because it doesn't have any songs" Maybe not within the movie proper, but there's still that annoying theme song by Shakira.

Not overrated. It's fine just the way it is. - Mcgillacuddy

It got way too much praise and rewards, all because it addressed a "timely" issue.

9 Sleeping Beauty

I watched this movie once and I was kind of bored through some of it. The movie is called Sleeping Beauty but the actual sleeping beauty is barely in it! That is such a misleading title! The movie was mostly about the three fairies who protect Aurora but they're pretty annoying. The best parts of the movie are the scenes that have Maleficent. She is such an awesome villain! Definitely one of Disney's best villains! Too bad they completely ruin her in the 2014 movie! - MegaSoulhero

The live action movie is better than this it's so cliche and boring - Rucas

10 Iron Man 3

The Contenders

11 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

This very disappointing flick better than Moana? There were even comments about them saying Civil War was worse than Rogue One!

The comments such as "Rogue One should be higher than Moana! " on WatchMojo's list of best movies of 2016 get too much credit, but Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty dark and also action-packed.

12 Fantasia 2000

I like this movie but it's just not as good as the original Fantasia! Fantasia is the best Disney movie ever created! So this was pretty disappointing. What is with the celebrity cameos? They are very forced an unfunny? The cartoons in this movie are also a huge step back from the cartoons in the original Fantasia. But it's nice to see the Sorcerer's Apprentice again! The original movie had segments that kept me invested throughout. The ones in this movie are good but not as good as they could be. But I commend them for trying to use CGI. As a huge fan of the original Fantasia, this one wasn't as great. - MegaSoulhero


13 Tarzan

Tarzan is a very good movie! But I do have problems with it. One of those problems being the songs. Let me make something clear. I love the songs! But the problem is they don't really have any purpose in the film. They don't really move the story along. They're just there so this movie can have an awesome Phil Collins soundtrack. I also felt like some parts were a little rushed. But the things I liked about this movie are really great! Tarzan and Jane's relationship is very well done and the animation is amazing! I've only watched this movie once but I might watch it again. I haven't seen the Legend of Tarzan movie and I probably never will. - MegaSoulhero

Oh God change the picture! - Mcgillacuddy

14 Inside Out

I hate this movie with a burning passion.

15 Pinocchio

I remember I used to love this movie as a kid! I would watch it all the time! But I watched it again recently and it wasn't as good as I remembered. I honestly have no explanation for this. I just don't think it's as great as everyone makes it out to be. - MegaSoulhero

Best movie of all time, because dolphins know you are lying.

16 Wreck-It Ralph

Can we please all just like this movie without telling anyone else they need to go to hell or bringing up Frozen in comparison? That said, I don't think it's overrated, but I know why people might think so: Sonic wasn't in it enough for their liking, and there was too much focus on a game that was made up for the movie instead of going from real-world game to real-world game for ninety minutes.

Does getting an unnecessary sequel that just screams "we're trying too hard" count make something overrated?

This Film Is Awesome, - VideoGamefan5

This is a great, underrated movie and it is action-packed, emotional, warm, and special. But saying "[insert any movie here] is better than Frozen" has become extremely trite, and nobody needs to go to hell over not thinking it's trite or even for liking Frozen at all.
