Top 10 Most Underrated Pixar Movies


The Top Ten

1 Cars

It's so annoying when people describe this film as OVERRATED. Like really? Cars' reception is not what overrated means. So yeah, the first Cars is the most underrated Pixar film to date. - codgtamk34

Its betterthan over the hedge. Critics themselves admit it it's the best fil of the year and people are preffering barnyard (very horrible), Ice age (also horrible, all the seques are worse film by film) and over the hedge, which is below cars by a notch

This movie is the best pixar movie ever!

Indeed it is. I don’t really see why it gets so much hate. - HoldenFanatic

2 Ratatouille

Whenever people talk about the 4 Pixar movies released between Cars and Cars 2, only 3 of them get talked about more and none of them is Ratatouille. I myself forgot this movie existed until 5 years after it came out and it is an awesome film - codgtamk34

There are no words to express how much joy this movie brings me. It's not only fun to watch, seeing Remy "drive" Linguini around the whole movie, but the beautiful parisian landscape and Michael Giacchino's perfect soundtrack pull you in deeper than you've ever been in any other movies. You can almost taste it

Does not get enough attention, despite being a delightful film. - iliekpiez

This movie was actually REALLY good. - Gunner224

3 A Bug's Life

Can you still work on a sequel to this film, please?
Because it got 92 rotten tomatoes.
There were emojis of three characters, Flik, Princess Atta, and Heimlich.

Many say it wasn't as good as the similar Antz, but it wasn't bad. - Gunner224

I love this movie! I even loved it as a kid. I remember first seeing it and being STUNNED at how good it was. Too sad many people just don't know this masterpiece

4 Monsters University

TOO UNDERRATED. I love this film so much..

This movie wasn't bad, but it was nowhere near the magic of Monsters, Inc. - Gunner224

This is MADLY Underrated. Can't believe so many people hate it.

I consider this to be almost as good as the original!

5 Brave

Merida reminds me of my childhood and relationships with my own mum. Now we are best friends and no longer enemies!

I love this movie and it’s soundtrack so much. I don’t understand the hate it receives - children

6 Wall-E

Underrated because people say Toy Story 3 is better when it's not. Wall-E is the best Pixar movie, but people don't give it the credit it deserves. - LarkwingFlight

Wall-e always has and always will be very close to my heart. I am absolutely horrified by the amount of people who completely forget how brilliant the movie Wall-e is.

They're on par in my opinion. The characters I, Kieran Glen Harris Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil am EVE, James P. Sullivan, Lightning McQueen, Colette, Ellie Frederickson and Buzz Lightyear of all Pixar characters.

7 Toy Story 2

Overshadowed by its predecessor and successor. So yeah - codgtamk34


Only 13? Toy Story 1 and 3 were great but this was just as good. - 445956

8 Cars 2

Cars 2 was just an okay movie, but people talk about this like Its trash. - BurnAux

What more could they want why did this do so badly. Compare this to Toy Story 2 It’s far less sacerine, more action Packed and far less slow, I mean I literally remember nothing about Toy Story 2. But this more darker and dose not that cheep looking animation.

The only Pixar film with mixed reception

Please see Bobsheaux's review to see why Cars 2 is literally good.

9 Toy Story 3

Not Underrated but still good.

10 Monsters, Inc.

This one is better than: Up, Wall-E, and Id sat it, its even better than the Incredibles. Only Toy Story surpasses the classic-ness level and genius film-making of Monsters inc. its genius.

The Contenders

11 The Incredibles
12 Big Hero 6

This isn't pixar! its disney! and don't say it's the same thing

It's extremely underrated because it's warm, very specially animated and has extremely strong characters. It's not really a Pixar movie, however. - Kieran Stark aka The ultimate Daredevil

13 The Good Dinosaur

Not really underrated,it was decent for me,but definitely not near the best

My favorite Pixar movie 🍿 and it’s so much better than A Bug’s Life

14 Coco (2017)
15 Cars 3
16 Finding Dory
17 Toy Story that Time Forgot
18 Inside Out (2015)
