Most Overrated Animated Movies

The Top Ten

1 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.

Extremely Overrated And This Movie Sucks - VideoGamefan5

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

2 Spirited Away

Overrated due to being most people's first Miyazaki movie. Not even close to being the best. Princess Mononoke blows this out of the water, but this gets the praise annoyingly.

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

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

I'm pretty sure this was paper animated.

Eh movie. I've seen better though.

Good art but he plot is way too simplistic and cliche, not to mention it's a ripoff of Kimba anime

4 Shrek
5 Toy Story 3

Toy Story 2 is better. End of.

6 The Simpsons Movie

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

7 Zootopia

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.

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.

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.

So bad - darthvadern

8 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).

How Is This Overrated? - VideoGamefan5

9 Toy Story
10 Ice Age

The First Two Are Underrated Nowadays

The Contenders

11 Akira

Only groundbreaking for it's introduction of Anime to the West, however, this is just one of the most overrated and ugly animated films I ever had to sit through.

I would exclude Spirited Away from being far up the list. For my taste, it was pretty great, and of people can be jealous of it.
Akira on the other hand, is the most overrated animated film I have ever seen in my entire life.
From left and right somebody's gonna try shoving down my throats of saying how great it is. It's not even that great.
Giving it's importance of how it introduced anime into the western world is fine, but everything else, just no.
Simply one of my most hated animated films of all time.

12 Princess Mononoke
13 Finding Dory
14 Wall-E
15 The Nightmare Before Christmas

If anything this is underrated. - Ari00

16 Puss in Boots
17 Cars 2
18 Hotel Transylvania
19 Fantasia

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

20 Tangled

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