Top 10 Worst Disney Movies of All TimeDisney has created some of the greatest movies in history, but unfortunately there are also some flops that they have made. Certain movies just aren't that good. They can be boring, annoying, or just plain dumb. If you like any of these, try not to feel bad. Everyone has liked something unpopular before. But know that not every movie on this list is considered to be terrible by everyone. As there are trolls on this site, there will be listings of good movies on this list like there are on every worst movies list. Just know which movies on here are REALLY your least favorites of the most hated.
Okay, let me put it this way: this movie is so bad that it shouldn't even have been allowed to be a movie. And it really puts down many girls, because Ashley is so "pretty" and has a "cute" crush called Troy. Are you serious?! The storyline and plot is so rubbish! Whoever likes High School Musical needs to watch more films and get real...
This Movie is Dumb. Like, I Though Musical Movies Stopped 50 Years Ago. I Hate Ashley Tisdale, Because, One, She is a Terrible Singer, and two. She does the annoying voice of Candace on Phineas and ferb. I guess Phineas and ferb is an okay show, but Ashley Tisdale is Dumb.
This is hands down one of the most overrated movies of all time! I hate the terrible singing and the horrendous voice acting! I'm so glad it's been almost a decade since we last saw this pile of trash trilogy on the big screen, and if they make High School Musical 4 I'm gonna lose more faith in humanity.
No, here's what I want to say: I'm not a fan of the singing in any of the movies, really. THIS. This movie is like 169.420% Singing. This is just... Why? Now and days, high school isn't happy and everything isn't singing. We have finals where you can't sing about how you didn't study and kids are SAVAGES. 2015 AND 2016 NOW.
No wonder this movie bombed so hard at the box office. This is the Worst Disney Movie I've ever seen! As bad as Chicken Little is, at least it has some funny moments and ok animation. The characters in Mars Needs Moms have some of the most disgusting designs I've ever seen. Are these characters monkeys?!?! They don't even look like humans or aliens. Milo is such a brat and hearing him say he wishes he never had a mother made me want to go into the screen and break his neck. And haven't we had enough of these movies about characters getting into a fight, something bad happens, and they have to find each other!?!?! This movie angers me every time I think about it, and I'm glad it bombed at the box office cause it deserved it.
4th biggest box office flop in history. This movie is probably the most forgettable Disney movie of all time. This was image movers last animated film due to money issues. I remember when they were popular when they made polar express, animated Christmas carol, and monster house. In this movie most of the humans don't look like humans. The only human that was done right was that guy named gribel. I think nobody should watch this.
This movie is so ugly that I can't even look at it without running to the nearest traffic lane and waiting for a bus to run me over.
A cinematic hellhole! I cannot watch this CGI piece of crap! The morals, the animation, and the characters are very terrible!
High School Musical is not a good movie, but there's no harm done or being done with that. This has the worst message in a DISNEY movie, all they do is harass and torment the main character because he mistakenly led everyone to believe "the sky was falling". And the pop culture references are obnoxious. At least "Let it Go" was original and kinda sounds/sounded nice. The only music in this is just pop music that is way too good even for this movie. And GEEZ the father is a prick. I'd much rather watch High School Musical, Cars 2, AND Planes back to back than watch this movie for a whole minute. This movie is without question the WORST Disney movie of all time!
This is one of the rarer cases where I used to love this movie as a kid. But now, the flaws are making this movie way harder to enjoy. I would safely say: This is by far... the WORST Disney movie. Even High School Musical could not overtake it. At least it was meant to be a musical, even if it's cringeworthy. Although Family Guy is in the Rotten Cartoons category now, I could forgive it, as it's hard to have a long series. Chicken Little actually destroyed a beautiful tale, and smashed it with the morals: "Shun, attack and abuse the unpopular and praise the popular." I will never forgive that movie now, and this is on par with Foodfight as the 3rd worst animated feature. Possibly even worse. Sorry if it used to be a guilty pleasure of mine, but this thing revolted me once I became 13.
This movie is TERRIBLE! Seriously! Why, you ask? Well, let's make a small list of the reasons.
1. Why Are People So Mean? : Chicken Little was trying to save them, but when it turned out to be a false alarm, they treated him like dog crap. For about a year, right? For about a year until he won a baseball game. A BASEBALL GAME. This idea was just stupid and a terrible message for kids. Probably one of the Top 10 Reasons Some Kids Are So Mean Today.
2. The Dad: Chicken Little's dad was probably the worst character in the movie. He treated ALSO treated his son like dog crap after a false alarm, just like the rest of the town. He didn't stand up for him or anything. A year later, he was STILL so embarrassed and ashamed, they he didn't even let the poor guy do what he really wanted to do. Play baseball. I don't exactly remember how it happened, but somehow Chicken Little ended up playing and won the game. And THAT is where his dad (and the town) actually had a bit of respect ...more
I honestly enjoyed this movie, but I can see why people hate it. It tried too hard to appeal to the younger generation, and not only that but the characters are just so mean. I mean seriously? A whole town of animals are basically bullying this poor little boy who accidentally thought the sky was falling. It's like that one episode of the Simpsons where Bart flunks up a baseball game, and the town turns into hell towards him. Sadistic...
This movie is definitely the worst animated Disney classic out there. There is basically zero soundtrack, poor leading characters, and a boring plot line. This movie feels like something that has already been done by a low quality studio, not someone as highly respected as Disney. At least you can laugh at Chicken Little as a joke but this movie has no action or humor. Every five seconds you wish the movie was over! There are some really bad Disney movies out there, but I don't think there is a way to be worse then this garbage.
Okay, this movie was bad and I think this is the reason Disney stopped animated movies. No, it wasn't Princess and the Frog it was this. I know it came out first but damn this movie was terrible. Not only that but the characters suck. They are so unlikable.
Why do people love this movie? It was too sappy and stupid. There were also a lot of things that were shown in this that really shouldn't be shown in a kids movie. And the songs just make me want to rather stare at a brick wall!
Why do people say Chicken Little is the worst in the Disney animated canon? No it's not. THIS WAS JUST A PAIN TO SIT THROUGH. I could not sit through it at all. This movie even almost killed off hand drawn animated movies. Thank god we have some coming out recently that are much better than The Princess and the Frog or The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Now those are movies worth watching compared to this excuse of a movie.
Imagine West Side Story, Hairspray, Back to the Future, Beach Party, Rocky Horror Picture Show, High School Musical, Enchanted, Grease, The Wizard of Oz, and Beach Blanket Bingo all rolled into one. That is Teen Beach Movie. The characters have little to no personality, The musical numbers are mediocre at best, and the story is not original at all. It ripped off some of my favorite movies of all time! They shouldn't be allowed to call it an "original" movie since it's anything but original. The only thing I like about it is the character Mack. She is the only character I can actually tolerate in this poor excuse for a movie and I think her character pretty much saved the movie.
What happened to the old Disney Channel movies?! Smart House, the Thirteenth Year, or even Luck of the Irish. I watched this movie because of my sister. I really don't understand why it's so popular. Do 8 year olds need to have boyfriends/girlfriends? It's putting an impression that they should have one because they're favorite movie character has one. The movie wasn't all that great anyways. The acting on Disney Channel sucks now...
Just no. The only reason this movie is popular is because of the 12 year old girls who have a crush on Ross Lynch. People in the 60's werent stupid, yet all the characters acted stupid, especially Leyla and Tanner. Dialogue was crappy, the random advanced technology with the weather machine screwed up the whole era. There's no way any of them can sing that good. Not all of them anyway. Either someone else sang for them or they were vary auto tuned.
This is the worst Disney Channel movie ever. I know that High School Musical isn't good at all (even though my older sister actually likes HSM, I've never liked it that much), but this is literally the beach version of it that's 10 times worse. The worst part is that they made a sequel to this. I couldn't even get through five minutes of either movie.
Fun fact: I was one of those people that was tricked into believing that this was a Pixar film. It's not even made by Pixar, so what the hell happened? It was advertised as the next big thing to Cars, but I saw it in theaters, so... yeah, the sequel is miles better than the original. It all starts with a prologue where nothing of substance even happens, also Dusty being Lightning McQueen with no personality or charm. Then, when the tour around the world plot happens, it all results in a massive plane crash. Ripslinger is extremely unlikeable, many of the racers were stereotypes of their own countries, with El Chupacabra being the more obvious (some Latino people in the theater were groaning when I watched the film.), Then it has the absolute nerve to include an intense moment, like, what? But, you know, there were some things I enjoyed from this film, like the "SkyPad" scene and the soundtrack.
For me, it wasn't the fact that this is a Cars spin-off that made this movie crap, but just how lazily it was created. There are absolutely no redeeming qualities in this film. It's completely cliché, unfunny, boring, straight-to-DVD formatted ass fest. I honestly can't even say that kids could enjoy this film either. It's an obvious cashgrab, because there's no other excuse for Disney to dish out something like this. They were probably just testing the waters to see what they could get out of this, which, of course, led to a sequel that was released literally just a year after. Nice try, Disney, but we don't fall for this anymore. We've learned our lesson from all of the horrid movies and sequels you guys were releasing in 2003-2010. Don't watch Planes. This movie is straight booty.
It's just a clone of cars but with planes. What's next, boats? Anyway, it's a boring movie that literally has no funny jokes.
It was way too serious, It was boring, had no jokes but corny ones, when I went to the cinema to watch this movie, I was literally the only person there except for this 5 year old and her parents.
I'm sorry. But Frozen is a masterpiece compared to Planes/Cars/Trains/Boats/The Next movie based on transport. It's a copy of Cars with Dane Cook trying to be something he isn't; Standable. I can't say more than that. Also, poor John Cleese lost points from me for doing this 'movie'.
I watched Todd In The Shadows' review of this film a couple of years ago and let me say... it clearly spoke to me and addressed the various flaws of this film very well. I just didn't like how the city people in California were very valley girl and whine about everything (even Hannah Montana herself was this in the beginning of the film.) and how the country people in Tennessee were either inbred or actual welcoming people... or both. This film really loves to show all the stereotypes of the Southern United States... and it's clear to see why. I think the "best of both worlds" message in this film was either between Hannah's personality... or different lifestyles. Also, yeah, I felt that the songs in this film were generic as all hell, even though the "hip-hop hoedown" song in this film is so bad it's good, in my opinion. But, you know. This film just plain sucked.
I don't get the plot of this show AT ALL. So, she's a teenager who is really a pop sensation, and the only person who knows it is her best friend? And the only difference in the way they (Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus) look is an ugly blonde wig? How can a wig cloud your eyes into thinking that you are seeing two separate people, but actually they are EXACTLY the same (apart from the wig)? Oh yeah, and when I listen to Miley I want to tear out my pancreas.
I hated Hannah Montana as a kid. All my friends loved it and just had to have all the Hannah Montana merchandise, and I never saw why. I don't know how that show even made it past the first season. This movie is a steaming pile of crap. Hannah Montana is a whiny nobody and the songs made me want to rip my ears off. Shame on you, whoever the hell made this piece of crap.
I liked it. But I just felt like it was a little obvious that it was Miley being Hannah Montana, I mean it's only a wig covering her brown hair.
I found G-Force to be below average but not god-awful. The fart jokes and pop culture references are obnoxious and the plot is stupid but the action scenes are really fun to watch and the voice acting is okay. I think this is better than those god-awful Alvin and the Chipmunks movies but still not very good.
This movie should be tied with Home on the Range and Chicken Little for the Top 3. Out of those I would put Home on the Range at #3, this at #2, and Chicken Little at #1. Chicken Little is mean-spirited, Home on the Range is stupid, and this is just disgusting.
This movie is probably the most immature, childish movie Disney has ever created, it has pretty much every poop and fart joke you can imagine. Here's what the conversations were like back in that small period of time where Disney was making these kinds of movies
Disney Excecutives: if we add as many poop and fart jokes in this movie as we can it'll entertain people for sure
Me: Yeah, maybe it'll entertain all the 2 year olds watching but newsflash YOU'RE Disney! You're like 1 of the only 2 animation studios that actually tries to make movies that aren't just made for little kids
What are you talking about? This movie was so sexy I watch it every chance I get. When me and my college buds have a bad day we put this movie in because it is so good. The behind the scenes shows the sexy hamster and it is so gorgeous.
Umm, this movie proved to be Pixar's lowest point. While the first film was good enough, it had charm and a lot of emotional moments, like the backstory of Radiator Springs. Cars 2 just went, "screw that" and made the sequel into a spy parody. And while the first film kind of ripped off Doc Hollywood, (it has a similar premise, by the way.) at least it tried to be original. This film tries to be a James Bond-style spy film, but ends up failing. And having Mater as the protagonist of the second film is always a bad idea, as he served as comic relief in the first film. His redneck behavior really sticks out like a sore thumb in this film. While I liked a lot of parts Mater was in, such as the Japanese restroom scene (Mater screaming is just hilarious.) and the parts where he was in Paris, this is just a zero-substance Pixar film with nothing to write home about.
The fact that this was a Pixar movie is so surprising to me. Normally Pixar makes amazing movies but this felt like more of a cash grab than a Pixar movie. While the action scenes are fun to watch and the animation looks fantastic, having Mater as the focus felt unnecessary. I felt this movie would've been a lot better if the film focused on Lightning McQueen instead of Mater, that way we could learn more about the events taking place after Cars 2. Luckily Cars 3 was able to make up for this movie and was a lot more fun to watch due to focusing more on Lightning McQueen.
Cars 2 is like Mission Impossible for kids! It's still got that interesting, edge-of-your-seat-ness to it, but it's not gory. It also has some great humor in my opinion. And it's a movie about TOW MATER. The best character! I don't know why this movie is so underrated. It is one of my favorite Disney movies.
I actually like Cars 2 and I think it is best in my opinion. You all don't have to agree with me on my opinion about this film. Honestly this is also one of my favorite movies.
Honest to god this movie is super cheesy and not worth a cent. Disney waist way too much time in the recording studio making these rubbish movies that nobody give's a rat's ass about.
The problem with this movie is it sucked and Disney mashed these different stars up into this god forsaken movie. Ashley tisdale, Zac efron efron, Vanessa Hudgens.
You take a movie that is a pandering high school drama that is mediocre at best, give it a sequel, and this is what you get!
Disney makes way to many musicals and this has to be one of the worst.
This is a horrible Ripoff of Madagascar! It's the same storyline (I loved the Madagascar movies but I hated this movie) Animals are in Central Park. They get leave at the middle of the night. They are put on a ship to Africa (Or Madagascar since Madagascar is in Africa) They have adventures and then try to return to New York! It was too cheesy! Its like the creators weren't even trying on this movie! All it was about was a lion trying to find its son in Africa but it was trying to get a good roar only! Also a ripoff of Dumbo! 50% ripoff of Madagascar and 50% ripoff of Dumbo!
I use to have a GBA version of this game. I don't know why, I don't know when I got it, and the only thing I remember about it is when I got stuck at a part where you have to fight off penguins flying at you from all sides. It was not the most normal game to say the least.
This movie is nothing but a blatant rip-off of Madagascar. It's one of those Disney movies that not many people know about, and it deserves that. I remember going to see this film when I was 11, and I hated it. I knew that this movie would be bad from the start, I could tell by the trailer it was just a cheesy knock-off. The only reasons I went was because my parents forced me to go.-TheWetWalrus
This is one of the only movies you judged properly!
Your criticizing all these movies, well id like 2 see create a better movie. And your saying disney is going bad! Do you think it is easy 2 make over 100 movies and shows and still have high ratings!
Yes, I must agree with you in saying disney is getting worse but afterb300 hit T.V. shows people tend 2 run out of ideas but they need 2 keep writing 2 get mony and.. oh I don't know... maybe,.. a PLACE TO LIVE
Look, this movie isn't awful. And if anything, it definitely beats a few overused tropes Disney used over the years. One of them being that you shouldn't marry someone you've just met. Plus, Let It Go is pretty catchy. I also loved how instead of the generic true love's kiss was beat with it being sisterly love. However, this movie STILL gets way too much credit than it receives. So if anything, this movie is just overrated. Many people also try to make a big deal out of Elsa being possibly a lesbian since she has shown no interest in men, while it could just be argued that she just wants to be single. People love her because of her powers and dress. Sure, they're cool and all but there's no need to make a big deal out of them. Either way, this movie isn't the worst thing ever made but I hate seeing it overshadow movies that are clearly better.
I wish I could comment without pressing the vote button. Oh well. I'm not saying the film is perfect, but in my opinion 70% of the people only hate It because the brain of humanity works "The farther It is from the things I grew up with worse" and when Frozen came out, with It's gorgeous winter shots, enjoyable music, interesting characters, millions of prides were shattered, but there is no way fans of the original admit that! (What were you thinking?! ) I'm not saying that this movie isn't overrated and I don't say It is just as good as Lion King or Beauty and the Beast, but number 8 on the worst Disney movies list just because It wounded your overflowing ego?! Come on guys!
Anna and Elsa are the worst role models ever. Anna and Elsa played with magic in their castle when they should have been sleeping. Anna falls for a man she met for a few hours. Elsa isolates herself from the world when she accidentally revealed her magic. Anna chases Elsa without thinking it through, and ends up being struck in the heart. Only an act of true love can save her, so she goes to Prince Hans, and tries to get a kiss from him, but Anna wasn't using an act of true love. She was being self-centered, and only thought of herself when she tried to get Hans to kiss her. Frozen is the most overrated movie ever.
Honestly this film is not as sexist as some of you people think. It is actually very disgusting and idiotic thing and overhyped and overrated for all wrong reasons. It's story plot in fact contains all irrelevant things with zero sense or no sense. It is completely nonsense with it's annoying soundtrack especially regard with this idiotic song let it go which contains all its dumb and nonsense lines and its rubbish version. It has been really bribed for the academy award and much praises from the critics for both story and soundtrack. It can be again said critics were actually dumb and crazy enough to give all fake praises for this film. This film also in fact deserves to be received with harsh criticism by critics and by majority public. It also deserves to get flopped up. Disney must strictly cancel its all sequels and must understand they should do something special for this film that is to strictly reboot and make again in animated 3D CGI version.
Oh my gosh I'm watching this with my 8th grade class as our prize for a reading contest. I first watched this at a birthday party in first grade and hated it. Two hours wasted of my childhood.
Ugh. Why did this movie musical even deserve a trilogy? It's like a musical version ofTwilight. Worse, because of all the singing and cheesy choreography.
This movie honestly sucked and the originals are a whole lot worse.
How did they even have money to make this movie? Pointless is the only word.
Some of the movies on this list are Disney Channel originals and some of the movies on this list are not Disney Channel originals. This 1999 live-action adaptation of the popular cartoon show is one of them. They made two of these crappy movies by the way, but I guess you only wanted to include one, because this movie definitely was horrible! Even with Matthew Broderick as Gadget.
I LOVE Inspector Gadget, but I hate this movie. It's a disgrace to the franchise. If you want to introduce someone to the series, show them the cartoon for the real Inspector Gadget, not this trash Disney calls a "movie". In fact, Quimby should've given Gadget the mission to find this movie and lock it up before Dr. Claw finds it, because this movie is the root of all evil.
To quote the Nostalgia Critic this film is 3 components Doctor Claw is seen all the time when in the show you never see him, the editing/effects are god awful, and the Mathew Broderick formula "Slapstick Huuh Idiot".
Just watch the Nostalgia Critic's review of Inspector Gadget. I can't make a true and honest comment without quoting him.
It basically ruined the masterpiece that is "Pocahontas". They made her narcissist, cold hearted and shallow. What happened to the amazing ending of the first movie that showed us how she had to make a choice between her love and her roots, putting willows's advice in heart, which made us so emotional? The love for her family, country and John Smith, was neglected and ruined by this silly sequel. I wish I haven't seen it.
It showed a very disgusting seen of extreme racism when the women of the British lands had to excessively apply powder on her in order to lighten up her skin tone, so she would be attractive and accepted by society. What does this supposed to say to children?
I watched this a couple months ago and thought it was just plain crappy!
Pocahontas and John Smith's love was ruined by this John Rolph dude. LITERALLY!
I mean, it was not the same when John Smith almost got killed by this fat governor person.
The romance between John Smith and Pocahontas was so beautiful but then this John Ralph rocks up out of nowhere and they fall in love. I wish I never watched it
Disney makes all these dumb stereotypical teen girl movies to try and attract girls to watch their movie, but really that's all really stupid. Remember when Disney animated their own stuff and actually had good actors? Not anymore. This is basically Hannah Montana all over again
Its really a lame version of a bratz movie in my perspective. They have poor talent and this movie is just too snobby. I feel that disney should be ashamed for making this film.
The characters were hard to relate to and it was very cheesy. All three of these movies were. I think Dorinda (the blonde one) was the only good character because some people could relate to her and her backstory.
Hey Disney, you realize that no girl in their right mind acts like that. The dialog and acting are so strained the characters sound like OH my ' GEE. ITS SARA-AH
In my opinion, this was just another rip off of high school musical. Disney should be ashamed to have released this rubbish trash. The characters are fruity, and the Jonas brothers suck.
Firstly, this movie was cheesy as.
Secondly, this movie was nothing but untalented kids playing random
THIRDLY, what is home on the range doing at number 8? - this should be number 4 at least!
This movie is literally a piece of crap. There is no plot just some stupid love story that no one cares about. The girl Mitchee is so annoying and fake and I swear to god she is the WORST actress I have ever seen maybe this movie could have potential if she wasn't the main character and there was no ridiculous love story.
Are you kidding me? Camp Rock was so good back in its day I mean sure today's kids won't like it but it doesn't excuse the fact it was amazing back in 2008/
I loved Mushu in the first film but they completely ruined him in this film. They made him the villain. He only cares about himself and wants everyone else to be miserable. I would have preferred this movie to focus on Ling, Yao, and Chen Po with the three princesses but nope all it mostly focuses on is Mushu being an unlikable egotistical jerk.
Disney makes the worst sequels because they never make sense compared to the first of every film franchise. You can really tell that it's low-budget because of the animation, music, and/or plot.
Shang and Mulan shouldn't have been a couple. It was Disney's one chance of making a boy and girl friendship not into a couple!
Shang literally runs away in fear from forrest animals.
Think about that for a second.
I didn't like brave so much. I like some of the top ten movies on this list better than brave, mostly because brave has nothing to like about it. There's only a couple of funny moments, and a lot of the moments are supposed to be funny, but aren't. There's also a lot of mindless shouting and crap, and I didn't like all that war crap the king was holding in the room. Also, it's just not classic enough. It is just too far out of the box.
Ugh, this movie is SO stupid, why? Here are my reasons why: 1) Merida did not get married or have a love interest. 2) a tomboy princess, really Disney, is that the best you can come up with, ? And 3) she wasn't classic enough, even tangled was more classic than brave, probably because tangled is loosely based on Rapunzel, and I don't think brave is based on anything. Those are my 3 reason's why brave in STUPID!
I love Brave! why is it on this list?!?!? For me its one of the greatest Disney movies! The humor is actually funny compared to things like Austin and Ally, high school musical, etc. I loved it because it took place in a cool country other than "a faraway land". Also because I am scottish and I love her accent
Was great the first half, flushed down the toilet the second half. The plot twist in this movie was so unoriginal and cliched! Also, the movie is really dark, violent, and scary for a Pixar movie. Stick to Wall-e if your looking for a Pixar movie more family friendly and original.
Watch the live action Jungle Book instead. Better yet, watch the original 1994 Lion King instead.
I saw more emotion from the Polar Express characters than any of the characters from here.
Even the penguins in Happy Feet were far more expressive than the characters here!
This version isn't live action. It's hyper realistic animation.
The first film is one of the best Disney Movies of all time. This, however, is just crap. Terribly cheap animation, the plot is boring, it's very childish, and it's just one of the worst Disney Movies I've ever seen. Belle goes from an intellectual, kind girl to a idiotic housewife. I can't understand why this became a movie.
The most entertaining part of this movie is when I went to the toilet about forty minutes in and I found myself not wanting to go back downstairs to catch the rest of it. My toilet is more exciting than this movie is what I am saying.
Jesus Christ, why is Frozen #7 while this is #23? I'm not a fan of Frozen either, but they straight-up BASTARDIZED the BATB characters we love in this so called "sequel"! Even the original's remake is better than this!
They made Beast incredibly unlikable and petty in this film. Beast is so bad he's good. I actually laughed at "I will never apologize! " This film sucks so bad.
The book was so much better. Whenever Disney makes a movie based off a cartoon or a book, they absolutely mess up. The characters and movements were ugly, and it was very unrealistic. I know that Disney's all about magic and all, but most of their magic movies made sense.
Call me crazy but I actually liked this movie. It's weird and creepy but I somehow still found enjoyment in it.
This should be where Frozen is at #4. Frozen is actually good! Bash this instead!
This freaked me out I liked the book and all but the claymation is creepy in the movie.
As someone who has grew up with the original film, I was quite curious when a little me in 2006 heard that there's going to be a direct-to-DVD sequel to The Fox and the Hound, but I mostly grew out of the film when I started focusing on other stuff, like Pokemon Emerald and the Pirates of The Caribbean film series. But it wasn't until the end of the year when I came down sick and my dad got a copy of The Fox and the Hound 2. I popped it in the DVD player, and... oh dear. What have I gotten myself into. It completely sanitizes the original film's story by adding in a new story, a ton of unfunny slapstick takes up a chunk of the film, filler up the wazoo, and a film that is dedicated to country music just baffles me, as when Reba McEntire's involved, you know it's gonna pander to country audiences. I prefer bands with good harmonies like Little River Band or Fleetwood Mac, as well as older country, those dogs need singing lessons. All I can say about this film is... "Kablam! ...more
Disney really had a hard-on for direct-to-DVD sequels, but this film is actually a rare case since it's a "midquel", which is surprising to see from a company that was known for making sequels to previous well-acclaimed films. That's honestly quite an achievement, if this "midquel" didn't suck. This is one of the more worse direct-to-DVD Disney films, where it completely ignores the harrowing, dark story of the original Fox & The Hound and turning it into a freakin' musical. And they threw in two late 80s actors, to boot. Anyways, what is this? Todd and Copper being dicks to one another and joining a country music group? With unfunny slapstick comedy?... moving on. To be honest, a lot of the singers in the group have surprisingly good voices, and at least the songs have a "so-bad-it's-good" quality to them, so at least there is some good to come from this midquel.
Also, the other big issue with this "midquel" is that it has absolutely no reason to exist. It only exists so Disney would make more money (I remember that one scene in the film where Tod, voiced by the kid from Zathura, says "Who cares about Cash?" and me reacting to that scene by saying "Probably Disney.") off of direct-to-DVD sequels. Another issue is that despite it being nicely animated, it is poorly-written and has some contradictions, like that one scene where Amos Slade cares about Tod all of a sudden despite him wanting to kill Tod in the original film. And the songs aren't even that good, even I can sing better than those strays, and Copper's "HarmonyyyyYYYYYYY!" makes me want to get the earplugs. Even if I sing better than them and as someone who has been to the country before, this is a terrible film. If I ever wanted a good adventure involving foxes, I would recommend the video game New Super Lucky's Tale, it's pretty good.
The original movie, from a dramatic standpoint, is my favorite animated movie because it has Disney showing a more mature view on an emotionally, gut-wrenching story. But, when I watched this movie, I wanted to just chuck my laptop across the room. I say this movie is an absolute insult to the original, and even though it was meant more for kids than adults, I don't think it was the smartest move they could make. Bad casting, horrific comedy, since that's what this movie needed, lazy writing, and just plain insulting to the time period it's in. What's even worse is I actually own the soundtrack to this movie, and it's absolutely mind boggling that it's better than the actual movie itself. What the hell was wrong with Disney when they made this?
Why is this not No. 1?
This is hands down the worst Disney sequel I've ever seen
Along with Mulan 2 and The Lion King 1 1/2
The animation is disgracful, Quasimodo's personality is nothing like the first movie, Phoebus for some reason has become a racist jerk, Sarousch is the worst sequel Disney Villain ever, Madeline the girl who Quasi falls in love with is not even a character, I can't even think of one reason why Madeline should be an actual character.
And the worst thing to come from this movie is Zephr...don't care if I've spelt the name right.
There is however one thing great about this movie, and it's a song yes...but a wonderful song
This movie is so bad that it makes The Wild look like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse!
The animation of this movie looks even uglier than Frollo's personality.
This whole movie looks like it was animated by the same numb nuts who animated the CDI Mario and Zelda games.
The fact that this steaming pile of garbage is ranked lower on this list than Atlantis makes me lose a lot of hope for the face of humanity.
Hard to believe that Disney would sink so low in the exact same year in which they released The Lion King.
This movie is to Home Alone as what The Wild was to Madagascar, as well as what Zoom was to Sky High.
I have NEVER heard of this movie. And I have heard and seen the majority of these films.
