Worst Pixar Movies


The Top Ten

1 Cars 2

I don't think this movie is as terrible as everyone says. I think it's okay. 6.5/10.

My Least Favorite Pixar Films From Worst To Best

1. Toy Story 3 (2010)

2. Inside Out (2015)

3. Wall-E (2008)

4. Finding Nemo (2003)

5. Finding Dory (2016)

I think Toy Story 3 is not only my least favorite Pixar film, but my least favorite animated film of all time. The only ones that I almost hate as much are Inside Out and Sing. I think Wall-E sucks, I've never liked Finding Nemo at all, and I thought Finding Dory was Pixar's epitome of mediocrity. I hate people beating on Brave. It's actually one of my favorite Pixar films.

I like Cars a lot too. People will probably hate me for this, but it's my opinion.

Now for my explanations.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

I've always hated this one for its shameless manipulation. It puts your childhood favorites nearly on death's radar and deliberately makes you cry. Hard. It's just so disgusting. ...more

Don't understand how they could be your least favourite. They're actually 5 of their best films. - DisneyLover19

Now a lot of people are going to hate me for this, but I disagree with everything on this list. I honestly liked cars 2, brave, and all the movies on this list. All the movies had mostly good moments, but sometimes very few bad moments in it. I probably won't be surprised if anyone dislikes this - TheGameBoy815

The fact you believed Cars 2 was a good movie means that you do not understand what made Cars a... well... decent film. Cars 2 basically took the comic relief character (Mater) and butchered him into the main character, morphing him from a comic relief character to a "spy" character. I'm sorry, what? No. It's sad the original main characters took a huge sidestep. - mattstat716

For my first part... I believed that Cars 2 isn't a very bad movie, but for a Pixar film, It's Absolutely garbage and It's pretty much as Pixar's first bad film. I know that the reviews of Cars 2 is unfair to most of you, but before If I say that Cars 2 Isn't a bad Pixar Film, let me set off the hood and debate this film.

Now first of all, the only positive note that I liked about Cars 2 is the animation, which It looks pretty nice and even MORE OF AN ACHIEVEMENT AND MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE ACTUAL SCRIPT, PLOT, AND CHARACTERS THAN THE FINAL MOVIE!

Now to the negative notes. I had first have a thought that in a Pixar or a Disney movie, you actually expect to have the story as very simple plots, scripts, and characters. But in here in Cars 2, THE PLOTS AND SCRIPTS ARE A MASS OF A HUGE MESS! In two confusing plots forcing on Matter the trow truck with spys, and lighting McQueen rivaling the Formula One against Francesco Bernoulli. Just more confusion after confusion with ...more - BurnAux

Steve Jobs is spinning in his grave.

2 Brave

I don't even know where to begin with this atrocity. I will admit, I didn't watch the whole thing. I couldn't take it anymore 45 minutes in and turned it off. The characters were so unlikable and unattractive that I could not have cared less of what became of them.

The Scottish accents were not appealing. The actress who did the voice for Merida was about 35 years old and sounded like it. The voice did not match the character at all. The character is a piece of work who blames others for her mistakes.

The King. Oh dear God. This gargantuan has no redeeming qualities. He broke the ugly stick he was hit with it so hard. Not to mention he is a complete animal.

Honestly, this movie was so bad that it's borderline offensive to Scottish people. Disney should not include Merida in its princess collection in hopes that they, and we, can forget that this movie ever happened.

Brave has been one of my favorite movies ever, I learned a little about Scotland, it had suspense, drama, and action, I was totally freaked out when the king started chasing his wife!

Brave was sad when the bear (that used to be a prince. ) died. What happened to the good shows on Pixar?!?!

It's not the worst of Pixar, but it's one of the most average and Meh. The only amazing thing about this movie is Merida's red hair, which is really beautiful and striking hair. But the character of Merida is generic and cliché to the extreme. A rebellious redhead who wants to break rules? So boring and predictable. Why do people insist on telling stories in which redheaded women are always rebellious, brave and temperamental? In the world there are also shy and introspective girls that have red hair, folks. But in this film, Pixar goes to an already widely used and predictable path of the rebellious teenager girl and abuses the stereotypes. To make matters worse, the story feels like a rip-off of Brother Bear.

3 Monsters University

Was immensely disappointed, I most probably could have written a better script/plot-line for this than the guys at Disney and they are getting paid ridiculous amounts to make this film. Unfortunately everybody will in fact go and see this film at the cinema due to the fact that it has been excessively advertised and is another 'Pixar film' and therefore it will still take millions at the box-office. These guys really need to sort their act out if Pixar are going to continue to be successful!

I don't hate it, but monsters inc is my favorite Pixar movie, and I was kinda hoping they would make a sequel to it instead of this. I wanna know what happens to Boo, like does she grow up? What happens when the kids become teenagers? Is Sulley doing a good job at running the business? Etc. I was really disappointed to see that this movie is the one they chose over a sequel.

How is THE INCREDIBLE'S and BRAVE that high on the list?!?!?!

Instead of making a sequel of what happened to Boo, what happened in her life after she grew up, which is what everyone wanted. They threw us this prequel that no one asked for showing how Mike and Sulley became friends, which is stupid because they don't become friends until about halfway through the film. Past that actually. The only good things about the film is that it's and enjoyable and its animation. Other than that, I didn't really like the film. - DisneyLover19

4 A Bug's Life

A bugs life is only on this list because it is not popular among peoples favorites. The only thing I don't like about it is that Hopper dies. ;, (

This list is pretty bad. This used to be my favorite movie. What the heck is it doing here. Besides Planes: Fire and Rescue all Pixar movies are good. - RalphBob

It's not necessarily all that bad it's just very forgettable - Ajkloth

This is anm incredible movie. Even after it being played in my house a hundred times over my childhood, I recognize how great it is.

5 Cars

How is this movie even bad? It's a great movie! It was directed by the same director of Toy Story! Cars is one of the classics and one of my favorite pixar movies. It has a great plot and great characters. - TopTenJackson

Yes! It may be not the best pixar movie but it was just a great movie! - MostTalented_BoyX

Cars needs to top this list. Even the sequel to this movie is better due to its action, wider variety of culture and heavily interesting environments. But like the original Cars, Cars 2 has one-dimensional characters. It still feels more like a Pixar movie than The Good Dinosaur, but the some of the settings are not really immersive, not even in the canyons. Deserts are one of my favorite places of all time, but Cars kinda does seem like El Coche from A Car's Life (sequels), which does not suck too bad. Cars kinda overdoses on Southern Americans, the only race I do not like. Cars 1 is way too overrated. Yes, Cars was directed by the same man that brought us the Toy Story trilogy and it does have a healthy lesson. But I give Cars a 3/5. - The Ultimate Daredevil

The fact that you thought Cars 2 was better than 1 is just unbelievable. Cars 2 is much worse for the fact that it's a cash-grab, Mater is the main character, and the background of racing has been changed to spy espionage. I literally don't understand how the first Cars movie could be worse than the second. - DisneyLover19

WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU PUT THIS ON THIS LIST? I grew up with this movie. And the bad guy does NOT win. He won the Piston Cup but he got his defeat. - CoolGuy731

Cars? More like Tards! - GeorgeTheNin10doGamer

6 The Good Dinosaur

As a lover of dinosaurs and Pixar, I was really disappointed. The animation of the dinosaurs was so amazing and so beautiful, I really loved that. But what exactly was wrong with the film? Well it didn't really have a plot. There were several parts of the film that I enjoyed (of course seeing all of the dinosaurs was great, that's what I loved about it the most), but for a Pixar movie, it's just really not enjoyable. It really lacked the creative storyline Pixar normally creates. Nevertheless, the animation was still superb and all around, it is an okay movie. But for a Pixar movie it's not so great. I loved all the dinosaurs in this film though.

I'll admit that the visuals for The Good Dinosaur are stunning. After all, every Pixar animated movie does phenomenally well when it comes to animation. However, I wasn't particularly captured by the movie's story. I mean, it's not a total cash grab like Cars 2, but I just didn't feel like keeping my eyes glued to the screen when I first saw this. And it doesn't really help that it didn't really do well at the box office as most Pixar movies usually do. I do praise that it was trying to be original and to tell a good story, but I just didn't feel as invested in it as I do with other Pixar movies. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Amazing animation... But so, so bland and boring. When I saw advertisements for this, I didn't even know it was Pixar at the time! The plot sounded like it belonged to a forgettable Dreamworks film. It's just an adventure through beautiful landscapes but with unimportant and annoying characters that they meet along the way. The good dinosaur actually annoyed me at times, I knew that there was going to be the 'villainous' characters from before popping up again and getting in the way. I wouldn't recommend it

This movie a bore.

7 Ratatouille

What an idiot made this I love cars 2 the incredibles I hate this guy - simpsondude

Why is this on here? This is by far one of my favorite movies ever!

It was an amazing movie! Shut up everybody who hates this!

This movie Was So Terrible and boring when I first saw it

8 Finding Dory

What ultimately fails Finding Dory in my opinion is that it borrowed so heavily from Finding Nemo, and the truck scene. There's no way an octopus can drive a truck. Other than that, the film was just decent. - DisneyLover19

This Movie's Amazing

Even though it is not out yet is just like the same thing like finding nemo

VideoGamefan make up your mind is the movie GOOD or BAD? - Mcgillacuddy

9 Wall-E

Why would anyone make a list like this, wall-e is the 3rd best animated movie of all time and toy story is the 2nd best.

Hmm I wonder how this list will be! :D (sees WALL-E at #3 spot)... What?! HOW IS WALL-E AT #3?! WALL-E IS ONE OF THE GREATEST FILMS OF ALL TIME! (it's the best in my opinion)... This list suck.

Huh? This is my second favorite Pixar movie, up being my first. Sure I get why some kids may like the movies with the funnier aspects, but being one of the more serious movies I'm surprised they put this on here.

My Mom slept through it, it was boring

10 Toy Story 2

Toy Story 2 is actually my favorite in the trilogy.

Taylor Hopkins I LOVE TOY STORY 2 it's sucazova! I got that from lion king toy story is the best

It was an amazing movie! Shut up everybody who hates this!

"No Buzz, I am your father." - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 The Incredibles

Who the hell put The Incredibles on this list, its one of Pixar's best films

This is Pixar at their finest. Disney animation at their finest, for that matter. Just what is it doing here? This list needs remixing, and fast. - PositronWildhawk

How? Just explain to me how this movie was even in this list? And how it is the 8th most hated movie? Almost the entire pixar is perfect, including this movie

The worst thing ever to see on a screen

12 Inside Out

How is "Inside Out" horrible?! It is a fantastic movie and created love. It's sad as well. No matter how popular it is, it is still amazing; even probably better than "Frozen."

Way too much is plot for the sake of having a plot. Sadness touches the core memories for no reason even after she knows that she can corrupt them. Joy could send the core memories up the tube to HQ, but instead they needed to drag it out for another hour. Joy and Bing Bong both fall into the forgotten memories at the exact same time, but only Bing Bong starts to disappear. Riley can clearly function, at least not emotionally, so are these five emotions controlling her or are they her? - VicarSlayer23

Wanna know something that's even worse than the movie itself? People will hate you just for having a different opinion and disliking that "cute and sweet" little blue blob. Seriously, the plot is a mess and the characters are not likable at all, especially Sadness!

I hate that movie!
It has a bad message

13 Up

No one will talk bad about this movie. No, Russel is not my favorite, and no I do not think the center theme should be introduced late into the movie. But really, Doug is about as good as you can get with a comedic character. Sweet, and just wanting his master to be happy. And on top of that, you have Carl. Unlike many kids movies, Carl is the protagonist, yet he is a grumpy old man. How many movies can you say have that? Kids movies especially? Not very many. With all of the emotions drawn out from this film, I really don't see why this was put on the list.

Up is one of my favorite Pixar movies, and I think a lot of other people would agree with me - Ajkloth

Great movie as a whole sure... but overall atmosphere was highly depressing and, I felt, a tad too morbid. Could have made an effort to make the movie a bit more enjoyable instead of making an obvious emotional play that detracts from the film itself.

This is Pixar's best movie. Get it off. - Drawbox

14 Cars 3

Why must I shut up, Pixtol? I have spammed that Cars is my least favourite Pixar movie, but I have proven my points. This is a list of worst Pixar movies. I guess I should say more good things about Cars to prove my mixed opinion towards Cars. According to Bobsheaux, Cars 2 has a lot of good aspects. 2006 was nowhere near the best animated blockbuster (most of its blockbusters are just decent), but it is great compared to 2013. I have very high expectations for Cars 3. I think it will give Lightning McQueen character development unlike in Cars 2, whereas he is thinly written. I actually love Mater's Tall Tales a lot. It gives depth to Mater's character. Mater has overstayed his welcome a lot, but I admire Mater for his strong attempts of comedy at times, cuteness, capabilities and kind-spiritedness.

I saw this yesterday as my first birthday party as an adult, and I am way too upset that most iMDB scores consist of heavy hatred towards this film. Lightning McQueen was finding ways not to retire. He was testing Cruz Ramirez, but he did not take away his own place to Cruz Ramirez for her to keep. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who gives Cars 3 an 8/10 (an 8 for the animation, a 10 for the sound, a 6 for the story and a 7 for the characters).

We can still give it a chance to improve over Cars 2

This has got to be the most underwhelming/boring/pc pandering Pixar film of all. Looks lovely though so can’t complain there but everything else was awful.

15 Finding Nemo

This movie is so amazing, how can people not like this beautifully crafted, crisply animation wonder of the world

You have got to be kidding me

Such a moving and heartfelt story. I absolutely love this movie. And Ellen DeGeneres is fantastic

I love this movie with a passion. Yeah, I said it! Go on and shoot me for saying this, catfight lovers! >8(

16 Toy Story 4

We all know this will be terrible. Didn't Pixar understand that Toy Story 3 was a great way to conclude a franchise that we all love, and the last thing we wanted from them is another sequel. As much as I love this franchise I don't want Pixar to release this. Toy Story 3 is the best of the franchise so why did Pixar have to ruin it by making Toy Story 4?! - FJS19

People, it's not out yet! Wait for it to get a trailer or something! You can't judge movies that don't have a trailer yet!

I really love the first 2, but I despised Toy Story 3. I commented on Cars 3 about my least favorite Pixar films, and during that I talked about Toy Story 3. I don't need to explain again. I really hope that I like this one.

You people are so picky
@FJS19 just because something ended perfectly, doesn’t mean it will suck. So don’t judge on it yet till it comes out!
@DCfnaf dude, just because something is going to be made for money, doesn’t mean it should be in the top 10.

17 Planes

Ugh I hate this movie!

This is not pixar

This isn’t Pixar, it is a spinoff of the cars franchise which IS Pixar, but Planes ISN’T made by Pixar. It’s also the same with it’s sequel. - elijalinsky

18 Monsters, Inc.

This is so good Monsters working at a Monsters INC a scare company to get there electricity - raysfavourites

This shouldn't even be on this list, like the Incredibles. This movie is adorable and emotional. I cried during the end. So cute!

No wonder this mvie is so low on the list! Because it's a masterpiece!

It was an amazing movie! Shut up everybody who hates this!

Pretty sure this is just one guy voting on everything (how is that even possible? ) and commenting the same thing. - DisneyLover19

19 Lava

Me too, but it is one of Pixar's weaker movies besides Brave, Monsters' University, A Bug's Life, The Good Dinosaur and Cars 3's predecessors which I like. The animation is very industrious (even by Pixar standards) and so are the singers, but I can live without heterosexual romantic couples. - The Ultimate Daredevil

I liked this short

Romance torturr - TeamRocket747

20 Planes: Fire & Rescue

I love both Planes movies!
