Most Underrated Animated Movies of 2017

Philip873 made the list of most overrated animations of the year so I decided to make the list of most underrated animations of the year.

The Top Ten

1 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

This is is so underrated! It was a great movie which has funny cahracteres, simple but good animation. And honestly the bathroom humour wasn't that bad, comparing to Boss Baby's bathroom humour, this movie's humour look like The Godfather, you know what I mean. - darthvadern

I'd agree with this for nostalgic reasons - Phillip873

It's overrated in my opinion, it's not as terrible as The Emoji Movie, but in my opinion, this film was the second worst animated movie of 2017, no offense to the people who liked it, and I do understand why people like it.

Some things ruined it - WorldPuncher47592834

2 Smurfs: The Lost Village

I haven't watched it but god how underrated! Sony movies are known for being very overrated, but that's not the case with this one. - darthvadern

Smurfs: The Lost Village is hilarious, sweet, nostalgic and underrated. Definitely 1,987,456,547,448 times better than THE EMOJI MOVIE.

3 Rock Dog

How this got rated higher than Smurfs, I'll never know.

Never heard anything about it - Randomator

I almos forgot this existed. - darthvadern

4 My Little Pony: The Movie

Barely few people went to watch this movie. - WorldPuncher47592834

No, not underrated. This movie deserved the backlash it got, as a casual MLP fan I say this film was horrible and there is no redeeming qualities to it at all.

5 Batman vs. Two-Face
6 The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

At least this is underrated for a good reason, the first was horrible, this had a higher rotten tomatoes score but that's not saying much. - darthvadern

7 Loving Vincent


8 Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory


9 The Emoji Movie

You actually liked this movie? - MegaSoulhero

Deserves its hate. - Phillip873

Now a lot of people believe that I like this movie because I had it on the list, first off, just because it's underrated it dosen't mean it's good, second off, I needed more entries, third off I hate this movie so much I wish Sony had made Hotel Transylvania 3 instead. - darthvadern

I don't get why people don't it

10 Justice League Dark

The Contenders

11 Despicable Me 3

As Philip873 said, it varies in the world where this movie is overrated or underrated, in the USA there is many merchandise, while here in Europe (Or in Sweden at least), this movie is literally forgotten in the shadows. It dosen't either help this is the second most overhated movie of the year. - darthvadern

Definitely not underrated in the US - Randomator

I watched it and I'm 17 and it's a really funny film - WinchesterGirl26

12 Cars 3

I actually really want to see this one. - HaydenFullwright

Probably the best of the Cars series - Randomator

This was good but still one of Pixar’s weakest films - MegaSoulhero

13 Batman and Harley Quinn
14 Animal Crackers
15 The Boss Baby

A lot of the movies on this list are awful, awful movies. - DCfnaf

See Emoji movie. Same thing here only slightly better - Randomator

16 The Son of Bigfoot
17 The Lego Ninjago Movie

How is The Emoji Movie and Boss Baby higher than this? I actually found this okay - Randomator

Just as awesome as Lego Batman and the Lego movie

This movie was ok but I wanted the characters to be like how they are in the show. Cole was the best character here - WorldPuncher47592834

18 A Stork's Journey

A rip off of storks

19 Coco

Loved the movie


Best Pixar Movie Evah!
