The following list compiles the best movies produced by the Sony Pictures Animation branch of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The Top Ten

1 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Product Image

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is possibly the best Sony Pictures Animation movie to ever be produced. Sure it doesn't stay that much true to the source material book adaptation. But the movie makes it up for its fun and enjoyable execution that delivers creative writing with an inventive script, really funny comedy, clever gags and great plucky characters. On top of that, it also offers one of the best Pete Oswald's unique and cartoony art style of Animation that works very well in CGI, with fluent movement and fast-paced slapstick; it fits the silly and goofy premise of the movie. I loved this movie!

It's sad that Sony Pictures Animation has been going down in the dumps now. In 2009, they made one of the best animated movies ever, and it's the Number 1 movie you are seeing right now (as of March 23, 2018) The comedy and plots were mixed to make a great story. Unfortunately, they made the Emoji Movie, which had terrible humor and plot, and the message really didn't fit right.

It's sad the studio from this great movie made a terrible movie years later... (However, they had different directors)

This is one of my favorite movies! This movie is one of the best movie about Father-Son relationship!

Screw Spiderman! This is the best and only good movie I've seen from them that they have released.

I barely remember toilet humor on this movie and your teen angst melodrama of a movie got nothing on a movie about a kid who actually CARES about his father and wants to bond with him instead of an ungrateful kid who pushes away his father like he's nothing.

2 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Product Image

Let me tell you a story as I write this in 2018. A year ago, I found myself at the movie theater, ready to purchase a ticket for Pixar's Coco. But while I was doing that, I saw an elder black woman purchasing some tickets for her and her grandsons to go see Sony's The Star. In my mind, I was flabbergasted that Sony Pictures Animation would be getting any money from them that holiday season when they deserved to see a much better movie with Coco rather than a movie by the same animation studio who made the reviled summer disaster that was The Emoji Movie.

Zoom right to 2018 and I'm at that same movie theater. Only this time, I wasn't giving my money to Disney or Pixar. This time, I gave my money to Sony. And let me tell you, for every second of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that I saw, every penny that went into the ticket I bought to go see it was totally worth it. Into the Spider-Verse isn't just quite arguably the best Spider-Man film to come out in recent years. It was ...more

YES

my second favorite movie, right next to avengers endgame. (that comparison just shows how good this movie is. it's on the same level as avengers endgame)

This deserves to be number 1 not that cartoony garbage that is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

This movie is overrated. Cloudy is underrated piece of my childhood.

Powerful storytelling mixed with stunning animation, Spider-Man just re-invented animation. 10/10

3 Surf's Up Surf's Up Product Image

Not only is this my favorite animated Sony movie, but is in my Top 3 Best Animated Movies. This is what got me into surfing in the first place. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the humor, everything about Surf's Up is top notch, except for a few things

1. Reggie(The otter with the afro hair.)
2. Surf's Up 2 Wavemania is GOD AWFUL!

Aside from that, if you haven't watched Surf's Up already, go watch it. NOW!

by the way, my favorite character is Chicken Joe.

The original Sony masterpiece, likeable characters, great animation, nice premise. 2nd best movie involving penguins ever created (besides Penguins of Madagascar, because, duh 🙄)

STOP IT! I'LL GIVE A POSITIVE REVIEW TO SURF'S UP! AAH! I'LL SAY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT OPEN SEASON! JUST PLEASE! JUST STOP SHOUTING! PLEASE! OW! *tormented, elongated noice* AH! WHAT DID I DO TO THE *whatever Electricragon505 said loudly*?! Well, okay, yeah. Technically, yeah, there is that and... OH, GOD! PLEASE! NO! NO! COME ON, PLEASE! *another agonized word* - ElectricDragon505 (at the very end of the overrated yet fun vidoe called "Cartoon Palooza Review-Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2") who literally told the truth when he gave Surf's Up an 8/10 (Seal of Approval)

This movie was my childhood I legitimately used to watch it 7 times a day

4 Arthur Christmas Arthur Christmas Product Image

I love this movie. Great premise, amazing cast (and Mr Santa but whatevs), and, I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of the character designs but at least it's not Flint Lockwood.

It's awesome, EpicJake! If you hate Justin Bieber, please overlook that flaw. Aardman is the reason why Sony Pictures Animation has a slight amount of good movies, along with the original Sony Pictures Animation movies.

I haven't seen this movie, but I'm sure it is good.

I love this movie

5 Hotel Transylvania Hotel Transylvania Product Image

Strong cast, hard-hitting gags, and great animation. Probably would've looked better as hand-drawn

I really like hotel transylvania, my favorite is johnny, he is so funny.

It's got great animation and lovable characters.

I really liked it

6 The Pirates! Band of Misfits The Pirates! Band of Misfits Product Image

They made this movie? I thought the people who made shaun the sheep did...

It is one of my favorite movies.

7 Open Season Open Season Product Image

It reminds me Native Americans, mountains, Australia, you name it... - The Ultimate Daredevil, describing mainly the animation of Open Season favorably

This was terrible, the jokes in particular

One of the only good Sony movies

I had a thing for boog

8 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Product Image

Pretty bad film and Flint cried and Steve's even more of a dick.

It isn't my favorite, but I giggled a few times honestly.

So good

not as good as the first movie, but still good.

9 The Angry Birds Movie The Angry Birds Movie Product Image

This is not made by Sony Pictures Animation. Sure, it's made by Sony Pictures, but Sony Pictures Animation has no involvement in this film.

Greatest video game adaptation of all time. Hands down.

Make this number one please

This movie was pretty bad

10 Monster House Monster House Product Image

This movie also isn't made by Sony Pictures Animation.

I like this movie fine

I hate this movie.

WHY WOULD ANYONE GET SHUNNED IF HE/SHE PREFERS MONSTER HOUSE OVER HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (FRANCHISE)?!

The Contenders

11 Hotel Transylvania 2 Hotel Transylvania 2 Product Image

I liked this one better then the first one, the little baby is so cute.

This film was ok, but nowhere near as good as the original.

It was decent I guess, at least it wasn't bad

Great movie like the first one!

12 The Smurfs The Smurfs Product Image

I like Smurfette because Katy Perry is playing her

Not as bad as the sequel but pretty weird

I love this movie. This movie was my childhood. I don’t find it as annoying as the chipmunks movies.

13 Sausage Party Sausage Party Product Image

It's great. But there are some scenes (+18).

I really liked it

Funny gags,solid story,memorable characters,you name it.

BUT IT'S NOT MADE BY SONY PICTURES ANIMATION! >:(

14 Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Product Image

I did not like this movie at all, everybody knows that you only zing one time in your life, this is said the whole movie both movies hotel transylvania 1 & 2, and now dracula can zing again?, and it happens with a human no less, we all know the fit dracula had when mavies wanted johnny in the first movie, all of the music in the last 10 min or less I am really sure how long it was, is very annoying as well, and this movie just ends, she says yes to marrying dracula then it just ends, the kids where very annoying with the dog the whole time, the other two movies where so much better then this one, 0/10

Fun cast, hard-hitting jokes, and ok premise. Very similar to first movie but enjoyable nonetheless

This was pretty good. Personally liked this one.

15 Goosebumps Goosebumps Product Image

I love jack black and this is a really fun movie

16 The Emoji Movie The Emoji Movie Product Image

THIS MOVIE IS THE BEST! way... better than any disney classics! disney movies are boring.
But this movie is way better than the classics like charlie brown which is the worst T.V. series of all time!
this movie is way better than my family and friends, gene is so cute I have a crush on him

I love this movie! This is my favorite movie! My favorite characters are Gene and Jailbreak, they are so cute!

Sony is the best. Until they stole Spider-Man. Emoji Movie is still the best though.

I hate this movie with a passion

17 Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

Beautiful. Huge upgrade from the originals and, along with Captain Underpants, is one of the more underrated movies of 2017. Strong cast, decent jokes, and perfect animation

It is way more faithful (to its original source material) than the live-action The Smurfs duology.

I want to see this! -trollsfan536

18 Peter Rabbit Peter Rabbit Product Image
19 Open Season 3 Open Season 3 Product Image

Actuality scared silly is the worst movie in the franchise not the 3rd movie and besides scared silly all of the other films in the franchise are good.

This is easily the worst in the franchise.

20 The Smurfs 2 The Smurfs 2 Product Image

Screw this movie. I wish Smurfette were gooshed for being whiny. Crying like babies is not what good girls do.

Worse than the first.

21 The Star The Star Product Image

Creative and engaging animated rendition of the ageless story of Christ's birth. WELL DONE.

22 Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Product Image
23 The Angry Birds Movie 2 The Angry Birds Movie 2 Product Image

I thank it's better than they origanl
