Top 10 Worst Kids Movies of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Cat in the Hat

I honestly blame Bo Welch, the director of the movie. Believe it or not, a lot of the dirty humor and innuendos were going to be in the live-action Grinch movie, but at least Ron Howard put his foot down and limited the inappropriate content (even if it is still colder, darker, and creepier than the original book).

Plus, DreamWorks being on board with The Cat (and not The Grinch) likely didn't help given its reputation. In contrast to popular opinion, I don't think this movie singlehandedly killed Mike Myers' career. Prior to the start of production, Myers actively distrusted Hollywood and the film industry as a whole, so his career was already on the way out (minus the Shrek series). The Cat in the Hat was merely the final nail in the coffin.

I voted for this movie so I could post this rant, by the way.

2 Foodfight!

This movie should be number 1. The animators apparently can't make a cat model, so they instead made a creepy annoying weaboo girl with cat whiskers and ears who fell in love with some ugly dog. What the heck?

This movie has a lot of adult jokes, horrible animation, disgusting color schemes, terrible voice acting, too many fillers, and was just a horrible movie in general.

If the original 2003 version wasn't stolen, we wouldn't have gotten this abomination. If you haven't seen it, watch Nostalgia Critic and JonTron's reviews of this.

3 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

I think this movie is a huge waste of time with pointless scenes, disgusting images, bad acting, and it's poorly written. It's poorly acted. Everything about it is crap. Just totally crap.

Who the hell on this earth will think this is a good movie for kids? Hell, even a good movie for adults. My advice: never show this to your kid or to yourself because you'll be scarred for life!

Potentially the worst kids' movie ever. I haven't seen the whole movie, but from what I've seen, it's a mess. It tries to use gross humor, but it just ends up being disgusting, with terrible acting, special effects, and morals that make no sense.

Just read the Rotten Tomatoes reviews and you'll see what I mean.

4 Barney's Great Adventure

Barney's Great Adventure is the 5th worst movie I've ever seen, behind only Thomas and the Magic Railroad, Transformers: The Last Knight, Super Mario Bros. (1993), and Chuck E. Cheese in the Galaxy 5000.

With kids' characters, we need ones that not only young kids like, but ones that older kids, teens, and adults can like. This dinosaur is the complete opposite of that.

"I hate you, you hate me, let's take Barney to the guillotine. With a great big tug and when the axe falls, no more purple dinosaur."

Barney is the worst. In this movie, there was a kid who stepped in cow poop during the Old MacDonald Had a Farm song.

5 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

I HATE Justin Bieber. He's an absolute nut. And why on Earth is Frozen on this list? I almost died of a heart attack when I saw it on the list. Frozen is the best movie ever made!

Yes, I agree. How can this even be a movie?! Let alone a kid's movie. Gosh, can't kids' movies have some decency?

If your kids want to see a horror movie, there's no substitute. This is the movie! After seeing this, they will have guaranteed nightmares.

6 The Reef

This movie is such a shameful rip-off of other movies like Finding Nemo and Karate Kid. But let's take away the fact it's a rip-off and look at the film as a stand-alone... IT'S STILL A MISERABLE ABOMINATION.

The movie has animation on par with Foodfight (it's that bad). The story is cliché but also ridiculous and boring. The characters have no likability and are just stereotypes. The humor is even worse than the ice puns in Batman & Robin. And there is ACTUALLY A SEQUEL TO THIS MOVIE?! Oh yes, there is, and it sucks as well.

How did this one get a sequel? That's like how The Legend of the Titanic got a sequel. It's just stupid.

7 The Emoji Movie

Why did they even make this a movie?! They say it's to show how kids are on their phones these days, but that doesn't make sense! During the movie, it's all about this one emoji who is different (cliché) because he can't make the right face. And the "user" of the phone only really uses the phone in the movie to text three times... THREE TIMES!

The plot was terrible. Anytime they'd dance or say something that I think was supposed to be a joke, it would make me cringe (especially the dance at the end!). God... People are running out of ideas.

8 Fred: The Movie

The geniuses at Viacom thought this was a good idea. Seriously though, how did nobody get in the middle of filming and say, "Stop! Just stop. This movie's gonna be critically panned, and we should never actually release it." Actually, I think someone did say that, but then someone else said, "But we already paid John Cena to be in this."

This movie is annoying, brainless, and doesn't make any sense even in context. Worst of all, it drove Nickelodeon even further into the ground. And then he got his own TV show... There's no hope for humanity, is there?

9 The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure

This movie is AWFUL! It did feel like a threatical pilot for a new T.V. show! This movie only made 1.1 million dollars. I watched stoned gremlin productions' review about it and they asked: Brad: out of curiosity, are we the first ones to go see this movie? It's Sunday. Ticket lady: no. In the past five days we have sold five tickets. Brad: the movie's opening day friday NO one came to go see it. Trolls are WAY better. Trolls make more sense. More like the oogiehates in the little balloon adventure. Whoever thought of a pillow having a birthday? SO DUMB! -trollsfan536

10 High School Musical

This movie should be called The Annoying Cliché Movie. Nerdy girl dates popular guy - hmm, where have I heard that before? Oh yeah, every book, movie, poem, or song EVER!

Why has such a terrible movie been watched by everyone on planet Earth? The plot message is simple: don't be different! Fit into the stereotypes people have designed for you! Fall in love with someone just because you sang karaoke, and convince yourself you can be in a play, despite having no previous experience or even interest, also because of karaoke! Oh, and let's not forget this:

This song will stay forever,
Every beat,
Will repeat,
Word by word,
And you'll see that,
The tenth time's even better,
Have this earworm stuck,
In your head,
Until we're all dead!

The Contenders
11 Son of the Mask

Another movie trying to appeal to both adults and little kids. For kids, but in the end, it's probably inappropriate for children. It's also got the worst musical number ever to disgrace a film, and it just goes on forever.

The Mask was good, but I think it might actually be a law that all sequels (except the best movie ever, Gremlins 2) have to be way worse than the original. Just like remakes.

More scary than bad. During the "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" song, Jamie Kennedy ruined five different music styles, and most of the time his face is just so close to the camera.

"Is he kissing the camera?" - my little sister
"It's like an alien horse trying to French me!" - Nostalgia Critic.

This movie is stupid and scary. It is the worst. Don't watch it unless you hate having a peaceful sleep.

12 The Last Airbender

I can't stand it when an animation is turned into a live-action movie! Also, this movie is pretty bad anyway.

M. Night Shyamalan used to be so good. Then this happened.

13 Norm of the North

I am a kid, and I really hate this movie. The animation looked terrible, and the characters' movements were blocky and uneven.

I like the concept and moral the movie is trying to teach (that we should not build property on the Arctic), but everything else is bad. The jokes were stale and unfunny, and the characters are two-dimensional and boring. The entire movie is boring, and the main character doesn't have many likable traits.

Also, when the movie started to get a *little* exciting (Norm's grandpa is in trouble), they ruined it by rushing the scene, which we didn't understand well. The resolution isn't very creative either. Norm and his grandpa destroy the ship, they get back to the Arctic, and Norm becomes the king of the Arctic (somehow).

They did a good job with the villain, though. He truly was unlikable, which is what you want people to think of a villain. He cared too much about money, that he lied and cheated his way to success, not bothering to think about the consequences or how it would affect Norm and his friends/family.

The little girl (I forgot her name) was okay at best, but the problem was the creators didn't even bother with her. There was something wrong with the characters. In a movie, book, or story, the characters have both flaws and key traits, making them more realistic. In Norm of the North, the characters either have no traits or flaws, or are only flaws. See? That's not what you try to get in a movie.

Also, I don't know why, but I don't like how Norm just "dances." It looks weird, it sounds weird, it IS weird. The music selection was bad, too. All they tried to do was get little kids to like their hot mess of a "movie." My little brother liked it, but I was barely awake throughout the span of the movie.

So, overall, I give this movie a 2/10.

14 Caillou's Holiday Movie

Isn't he just a ripoff of Charlie Brown?

15 Mac and Me

Good thing this film is forgettable. Otherwise, we would be haunted by its awfulness for years.

0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Yeah, I know it was bad.

16 Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

It's probably worse than the first one, even though the first one sucked.

If you enjoy cheesy films and you're high, this movie is not completely irredeemable.

The babies needed more fighting action. They didn't do much of anything.

17 The LEGO Movie

I have a large metal bowl filled with Lego blocks and characters sitting at the top of my shelf. After viewing this movie, I turned my eyes upon it, clambered atop my shelf, took the bowl and its contents down, and tossed them into my imaginary firepit.

This movie made it so that I cannot play with Legos without remembering it. It's incredibly disruptive. This movie wasn't too great, but maybe that's because it's just not my genre. Either way, it could use serious development.

I'm sorry. I know a lot of people love this movie, but I just think it was bland. If you guys like it, good for you.

18 Kazaam

Just watch the hilarious Nostalgia Critic review and you will understand.

Why is this even a kids' film? What kind of kid will be entertained by this?

This is one of the dumbest movies ever put on the silver screen.

19 Tentacolino

This Titanic animated movie sequel is an insult to all the innocent men, women, and children who died on that fateful night on board the RMS Titanic!

I think we can all agree this is one of the worst things ever.

Why does this octopus have a dog face?

20 Woody Woodpecker
21 Teen Beach Movie

This movie is terrible. The plot lasts for five minutes, and the characters sing every five minutes. It's just about boyfriends and girlfriends kissing and dancing.

Plus, the girls share a room where they talk about boys all the time and be emotional (sexist, by the way).

I thought the soundtrack was great when it came out several years ago (I was about 10), but the plot went absolutely nowhere. Three years later, I can hardly stand any of the songs.

Hmmm... okay! This movie is about teens at the beach, and it's a movie. Let's call it Teen Beach Movie! So creative!

22 The Little Panda Fighter

There is this show called The Amazing World of Gumball ( GREAT GREAT show! Check it out! ), and there's this one episode called The Treasure its wear Gumball, Anias, and Darwin all look around the house trying to prove that everything their family owns is a knock off. Their Dad (Richard the couch potato) is watching what he calls, How to Ratatwang Your Panda, which the show was obviously trying to make fun of Kung Fu Panda, and the animation looks EXACTLY like the animation in this awful movie. Thank goodness The Amazing World of Gumball made this into a good parody.
It deserved it

Kung fu panda ripoff that looks terrible.

Thank god it's so underrated.

Such a knock-off from Kung Fu Panda, just like Chop Kick Panda. *sigh*...

23 Ratatoing

What on earth were they thinking when they made this movie? This movie has terrible animation, terrible models, terrible voice acting, and a corny unrealistic plot. There's like 3 hours in the beginning when the characters do nothing but talk about how good the food at the café is!

This movie is nothing but a terrible rip-off of Ratatouille, and only a blind old person wouldn't realize the difference.

Tried watching it twice. Got bored in the first 5 minutes both times. Too much filler, and the rats sit around and speak in annoying voices saying stuff like "The food is exquisite, divine, marvelous!" and talking about food.

24 Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure

This is just offensive to girls. I am, in fact, a girl myself. I hate it when Disney makes girly pink glittery movies just to attract girls. Is this really what people think girls like nowadays? No. I am a girl, and I have a bunch of friends who are girls too. We all don't like the color pink and prefer other colors like black and blue.

I still appreciate it when people buy me pink stuff because they don't know what to get me, but this is disgusting.

The dog does not look very happy about how the movie turned out either. This movie horribly portrays females.

25 Tappy Toes

Haven't seen the movie but have seen youtubers review it. I actually like the animation style but the voice acting and plot are Garbage. Ripoff of Happy Feet.
