Top Ten Best Movies from Sony Pictures Animation

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 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! - UltimateReviewer

One Word: Jell-O

This is one of the only few good movies made by Sony. This is a Masterpiece.

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) - MissRWBY202

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

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 love this movie. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

3 The Pirates! Band of Misfits

It is one of my favorite movies. - RalphBob

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

4 Surf's Up

One Of The Best Animated Movies By Sony - VideoGamefan5

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)

My favorite by a long shot

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.

5 Open Season

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


6 Hotel Transylvania

It's got great animation and lovable characters.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This should be in number 1.


7 The Angry Birds Movie

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. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

This movie is overrated
