Most Overrated Animated Movies

The Top Ten

1 Frozen Frozen

Good songs do not automatically make a movie "good". I feel like a lot of people are confusing how much they enjoyed jamming out to Let It Go with how consistent and cohesive the plot was and how well-developed the characters were. - Ari00

Unbearable and over-hyped, I'm so glad that I won't be needing that one and see the whole entirety.

Frozen fan-brats will disespect our negative opinions on Hotel Transylvania! :O

2 Spirited Away Spirited Away

To these two people that said in the comments that Spirited Away is not overrated, it's not underrated either. But I've seen even greater Studio Ghibli movies.

Spirited Away is not overrated! XP

It's not overrated at all.

3 The Lion King The Lion King

What?! This is one of the greatest Disney movies of all time!

I'm pretty sure this was paper animated.

I've seen better.
And Mufasa is overrated as well.

5 Cars Cars

Cars does have its moments, but I actually trust the Nostalgia Critic on almost every Disneycember/Dreamworks-uary video such as his video on Cars. Cars does not feel like the least like a Pixar movie, but it does have some racial stereotypes and not enough adventure. Even Cars 2 is a better Pixar movie. I give Cars a 6/10 (a 7 for the animation, an 8 for the sound, a 5 for the story and a 5 for the characters).

6 Shrek Shrek
7 The Simpsons Movie The Simpsons Movie

No, this movie deserves it's love. - RalphBob

8 Toy Story Toy Story
9 Ice Age Ice Age

The First Two Are Underrated Nowadays

10 Megamind Megamind

Overrated? Not at all! It's my favorite movie, so I'd say underrated. - LarkwingFlight

I like Megamind.

Megamind is the only overrated movie on this list.

The Newcomers

? Moana Moana

The Contenders

11 Wall-E Wall-E
12 Puss in Boots Puss in Boots
13 Tangled Tangled

It may be a little overrated but frozen is a LOT more overrated than Tangled.

14 Sleeping Beauty Sleeping Beauty
15 The Nightmare Before Christmas The Nightmare Before Christmas

If anything this is underrated. - Ari00

16 Zootopia Zootopia

Well, I considered Zootopia to be much better than Frozen, especially plot-wise. I only referred to Frozen because I feel like it's one of the most overrated Disney animated films. And yes- I am well aware of Zootopia's popularity during its "opening weekend." Obviously a highly anticipated movie will have an abundance of views during the time of its premier. Considering that, the fact that Zootopia is on this list is ridiculous. The movie came out so recently that it can not be deemed "overrated"- at least not yet. And did I not say it's underrated "in my opinion"? You don't have to agree. Also, I have no idea how that remark about "political satire" and "social commentary" was relevant to to my previous comment. Overall, Zootopia is a great movie and just shouldn't be on this list in my opinion.

There is no way a movie that had the biggest ever opening weekend for an animated film is anywhere near "underrated". And believe it or not there are people out there who don't want to be hit over the head with social commentary/political satire and aren't so easily amused by puns. Oh yeah, and "10x better than Frozen"? Like that holds any weight anymore given that it's been applied to every single other animated movie in existence.

Due to this film getting an oscar but Finding Dory didn't I was waiting all day to give this film the beating it deserves, My least favorite type of Disney movies are the ones that are considered to be so popular that everyone expects it to be the new Mickey Mouse because... WHATEVER IT IS IS SO DARN AWESOME! And this movie is the king of that. In the future in Disney, this film should just VANISH! Never be spoken about again.

Extremly overrated animated film that sucks, it's worse than frozen, but I still like frozen. But I hate this movie. - darthvadern

17 Fantasia Fantasia

Criminally underrated in my opinion. The general population doesn't care too much for classical music. - Ari00

18 Finding Dory Finding Dory
19 The Little Mermaid The Little Mermaid
20 The Lego Movie The Lego Movie

Someone says something negative about "Frozen", the response is ALWAYS "Yeah, sock it to that terrible, awful, horrid waste of film! "

Someone says something negative about "The Lego Movie", the response is ALWAYS "No! How can you hate it? "

That's far from fair, and both movies suck despite the massive praise and hype.

No one's allowed to dislike this movie, to say it's anything less than the ' Citizen Kane of animated movies. But it's just another trite story about some schmoe turning out to be the one to save the universe. The attempts to come off as having some really deep moral and the "all star" cast don't change that.

People need to stop believing that stupid song.
