Most Unoriginal Illumination Entertainment Movies

In a few days the next Illumination Entertainment movie known as The Grinch will be released in theaters, and I don't have much hope for it, why? Because Illumination is one of the most unoriginal animation studios of all time! Here's the most unoriginal of them! Note that since there are so few Illumination movies not all of them are unoriginal, only the ones at the top, without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 The Secret Life of Pets

This is by far the most unoriginal Illumination Entertainment movie. To be honest, this is one of the reasons Illumination is going downhill! This movie is just Toy Story but with pets, yay, how fun (not). Every character is either a rip-off on someone from Toy Story, or they are just for filler! The story is the same as well! Main character is so lvoed by his owner, a new character comes in and main hcaracter gets jealous of him and he ruins everything and they must get back! Haven't we already seen this plot before? It's sad that there was another Dreamworks movie a year later that had the same plot! I will admit, at least the villian isn't a Sid Philips rip-off, and there are some new things I guess. But that's not all! The humour is just the same disgusting Illumination crap! To be honest this is the Illumination movie with the worst jokes! - darthvadern

It's Toy Story with pets! - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Answer is all of them illuminations movies all are bland stupid and boring

I thought it was really great. I love this picture! 4 Stars!

2 Sing

Too. Many. Butt. Jokes.

Boring and it has WAY too many pop songs. It also tries a littls bit too hard to be relatable. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

I think it was made to compete against zootopia which was relased earlier that year.

Despite probably hating Sing more that TSLOP, I'd say it's a bit more original, that's not saying muh though! This is one of those movies that tries to be hip and cool for kids! It's jut a movie that has all those "relevant" and stupid pop-singers just for the heck of referancing! It even has Anaconda in it and you know a movie is terrible when it has a butt song in a kids movie! I'm suprised no one pointed this out! - darthvadern

3 Hop

It has the lowest score on Rotten Tomatoes, which it performed poorly.

This is another movie that rips off a Pixar movie: Rataoullie, because they both have main characters that are expected to do certain jobs but they want to be something else, Remy wanted to be chef, while in this movie, this rabbit dude wants to be a drummer! Honestly it's a predictable and generic easter movie, unoriginal is it - darthvadern

It's basically the Easter Bunny movie. Nothing that special. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Don't even have 10 movies to fill up a list. Finished movies. - iliekpiez

4 Despicable Me 3

I like that film. One of the most enjoyable Illumination films. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

I hate this movie!

To be honest this movie isn't that unoriginal. The only really unorginal part is the whole twin brother twist, I mean it was kinda proof Illumination is running out of ideas. Other than that it was quite original like Balthazar Bratt who is a really developed villian and I liked Dru as well. in my opinion this is the second best animated movie of all time, and I know, I will get hate replies for this and people will call me a troll - darthvadern

5 Minions

Despite liking this movie, it is very, and I mean VERY predictable! They are minions, and you know what the true word minion means! It's someone that works for someone! Did anyone think that they wouldn't find Gru and the end? Honestly it's quite predictable. It's still a good movie in my opinion - darthvadern

I like that film, but it isn't the best out of the Despicable Me films. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

6 The Lorax

This movie is very original. It's message is kinda similar to Wall-E's in some way, don't trash everything down! Except this movie is more about keeping trees and not about garbage. I don't really know why people hate this movie as I love it - darthvadern

It just preachs it's environment message. But the songs are good. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

This movie isn't original it’s based on a book you know that right?

7 Despicable Me 2

Alright so this and Despicable Me are some very original movies. This one has a very good and fresh story that doesn't rehash the original (same with the third one) and the characters and story is quite good. This is along with Hop the only Illumination movie with a suprise villian twist as well - darthvadern

8 Despicable Me

By far their most original work! The story was very original and it's something we have never seen before! Even though I prefer Despicable Me 3, Despicable Me 2 and The Lorax over this movie, I can't deny that this is the most original Illumination movie! - darthvadern

Very boring!
3 girls not there, 3 girls are now there, 3 girls aren't there anymore, the 3 girls come back, yay! - --ChadBlake--

9 The Grinch

It's quite good once you tried the film. Honestly, I think that this is one of the best Illumination films. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

I mean the 2018 one, Illumination is making an animated version

It looks better than the 2000’s one

10 The Secret Life of Pets 2

Trailer came out. It looks very bad.

The trailer already looks boring. - Drawbox

The Contenders

11 Despicable Me 4

Another one? Yeah, it will be very disappointing.
