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 we're 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.

Why did Universal Studios have to ruin my childhood book with the most offensive, godawful, idiotic rubbish that could be considered a "kids" movie? I can name a few reasons why this movie is so awful:

1. The inappropriate jokes (for example: the protagonist, The Cat in The Hat, points to a hoe and calls it a "dirty hoe"). This could've been a reference to the worst type of slur you can say to a girl.

2. The protagonist is just so out of character. I mean, he went from an extremely silly and tolerable anthropomorphic cat to an immature buffoon with an IQ of only 10. I mean, SERIOUSLY, he can't even do anything right!

3. The humor is just stupid. That's all I have to say.

4. The CGI on the talking fish is terrible. I mean, I've seen better CGI from The Rapsittie Street Kids, and that's saying a lot considering that movie's worse.

I can't go on about this awful film. I mean, it even has a 4.0 rating on IMDb, even lower than most modern SpongeBob episodes (Seasons 6-8).

This movie is an awful, idiotic, immature, disgusting, vile waste of my time. 1 star. That's it, I'm done with this film.

KelseyPower out!


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 colour 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.

With all the ugly animation and constant use of innuendos I'm more convinced this was a failed attempt to make a horror movie for adults.

3 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 characters that not only young kids like, but ones that older kids, teens and adults can like. This dinosaur is the complete opposite of what I just said. "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 an idiotic purple dinosaur who had said Remember, Kiddies. Don't bother locking your doors and hiding under the bed, because, sooner or later, I WILL FIND YOU AND KILL YOU ALL. I hate you, you hate me, let's take barney to near volcano and slice him in half and then throw his body into lava, no more purple dinosaur.

4 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

No way in hell is this worse than the movies above it (Especially Foodfight).
Also, if you think this movie's worse than the Garbage Pail Kids Movie, your opinion doesn't matter. I meant what I said.

I HATE Justin Bieber, he's an absolute nut. And why on Earth is Frozen on this list, almost died of 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 move. Gosh, can't kid movies have SOME descents?

5 The Emoji Movie

Why did they even make this a movie?! They say it's too show on 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 (cliche) 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 any time they'd dance or say something that I think was supposed to be a joke would make me cringe ( especially the dance at the end XC! God...People are running out of ideas...

The Emoji Movie is bad! Sure the animation is decent, but it is unoriginal, uncreative, and unlikable! Its also just a cash grab! The movie forces us to like Gene, although he almost killed everyone in the phone because of the crap he committed. The daycare I go to even made us watch it a thousand times, although it is really crappy.

Where do I start. So much product placement that it was like going to the Apple store. Second, the entire plot was flat and pointless. It literally could have been over in 5 minutes and ended better. Third, the morals were completely twisted and broken. Need I say more?

6 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

I think this movies a huge waste of time with pointless scenes disgusting images bad acting and it's poorly written it's poorly acted, everything about is crap just totally crap who the hell on this earth! Will think this will be a good movies for kids hell even a good movie my advice never show this to your kid or never show to yourself because you be sacred 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, trying 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.

Those kids look so ugly. They look like oversized dolls that walk around and talk. Are the creators of this movie trying to give people nightmares or what?!

7 High School Musical

This movie should be called 'The Annoying Cliche 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!

This movie is basically the movie form of the junk on the Disney Channel. Teen drama, with unrealistic settings and absurd themes, and also ugh... Singing. Although I love singing, this film puts singing into everyday life as a way of making the characters tell their personal struggles. While this is a great way to vent, it's normally done alone when things are at there worse. Sharpay is just the rich, spoiled blonde. And the kids in the school are just so cruel. In the "Stick to what you know" song, it's telling it's preteen demographic that you should be what everyone thinks you should.
In short, keep your children and yourself away from this drama mushpile. Do not watch.

8 Son of the Mask

Another movie trying to appeal to both adults & 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, & 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 their original. Just like remakes.

More scary than bad. During the "can't take my eyes" song (? ) Jamie Kennedy ruined 5 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
Is the worst. Son't watch it unless you hate having a peaceful sleep.

9 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 humour 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.

I used to love the first one, even though I knew it was an ugly, cheap, insulting knockoff of the Karate Kid and Finding Nemo, but the sequel is HORRID! It's even uglier and way more stupid! The characters are too obnoxious, and the only good character is that criticizing starfish.

10 The Last Airbender

I can't stand it when it is an animation and then they make a movie about it with real people! Also this movie is pretty bad, anyway.

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

The anime is better.

The Contenders
11 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 2-dimensional and boring. The entire movie is boring, and the main character doesn't have too 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.

12 Caillou's Holiday Movie

Why would they even make a movie like this, Caillou is a big fat stupid idiot and a whiner.

Isn't he just a ripoff of Charlie Brown.

Caillou is stupid anyway

13 Mac and Me

Good thing this film is more forgettable otherwise we would be haunted by this films awfulness for years.

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

This movie is stupid

14 Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

God it's probably worse than the first even though the first one sucked mighty Popsicle.

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

The babies needed more fighting action than just doing nothing much.

15 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 turn my eyes upon it and 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 this movie. Its incredibly disruptive. This movie wasn't too great, but maybe that's because its just not my genre. Either way, it could use serious development.

I hope I never see this film in theaters. Making a film out of Legos is a very bad idea. I hope this film gets largely negative reviews and becomes the biggest box office bomb of all time.

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.

16 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, doesn't make any sense even in context, and worst of all, drove Nickelodeon even further into the ground. And then he got his own T.V. show... There's no hope for humanity, is there?

It's not funny, it's stupid, it's cheesy, it's insulting, it's annoying, it's irritating, it's anything in the dictionary to describe this travesty. I highly recommend you to avoid this movie at all costs. Don't waste your time on watching this. Thank God, this movie deserves to have a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Because apparently, we live in a world where a channel that hasn't been relevant for about a decade needs a movies where the main character complains about his crush not loving him back, because there are totally not hundreds of other movies that are the exact same thing.

17 Kazaam

Just watch the hilarious nostalgia critic review and you will understand.

Why is it even a kids film what kind of kid will be entertained by this.

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

18 Tentacolino

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

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

Why does this octopus has a dog face?

19 Woody Woodpecker
20 Teen Beach Movie

This movie is terrible. The plot lasts for five minutes and the characteres sing every five minutes and its just about boyfriends and girlfriends kissing and dancing. Plus, the girls share a room where they talk about boys all of 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. 3 years later I can hardly stand any of the songs

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

21 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 a girl too, we all don't like the colour pink and prefer other colours 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 came out, either. This movie horribly portrays females.

How is this an adventure film?! It absolutely doesn't make any sense.

22 Frozen

So I will give this movie the credit it gets. The first one or two times, the movie was good, beautiful animation, a couple chuckle moments, but that's it, I wouldn't buy it, and I wouldn't expect it to last more than a month or so.


Clearly the billions in revenue and records were gotten by mothers taking their daughters for the fifth time that day.
Just because a movie broke records, doesn't mean it's good.

The music was mediocre at best and they just dropped it from the second half of the movie.

Disney could of had a much better plot if they just kept elsa as the main villain. Seriously, I get they are wanting to be different but it just did one 360 after another.

Lastly, character development is non-existent in this movie. Beyond the main 3 characters possibly changing their order at the drive through there are no real side characters developing either. They introduced so many faces and either just had them there to be there, or implied at something and just ditched it.

Disney I am ashamed, this movie was for profit and profit only.

23 Alvin and the Chipmunks

The cartoon was funny in childhood, but in reality it was annoying.

Ok. the only reason I like this movie is because its about chipmunks.

The Chipmunks can't be that bad!

24 Ratatoing

What on earth were they thinking when they made this movie? This movie has terrible animation, terrible models, terrible voice acting, corny unrealistic plot and there's like 3 hours in the beginning when the characters do nothing but talk about how good the food at the café are! This movie is nothing but a terrible rip-off of Ratatoullie and only a blind old person wouldn't realise the difference.

Tried watching it... Twice.. Got bored in 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 marvellous! " And talking about food.

The makers must have had no shame when making this "movie".

25 The Hero of Color City

I'm sorry but this show is just too corny and childish! I know it's a kids film, but when I was young I didn't watch corny crap! In fact, when I was young I spent most of my days watching documentaries of animals and insects. I would never waste any second to watch something like this.

Its boring and stinks

An waste of money, go watch movies like harry potter or hunger games

What is this about?
