Worst Pixar Movies

The Top Ten

Cars 2 Cars 2 Product Image

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.

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

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.

Ok, due to the TopTens new "10 comments a day" rule, I will comment on the top 10 worst pixar films with no honorable mentions starting with this, I liked it as a kid, but I knew no better, nowadays, I'm not a huge fan, a car got killed on screen from something that was NOT your standard NASCAR race accident fare, and no, it was not Doc Hudson (he was killed between the plots of Race O Rama and this, and flashbacks are off-screen) but a rather modern car who got murdered by the car equivalent of the mob. The film also made Mater a main character for some reason, and all that stuff... I still love the idea of a world-wide Cars film, but it was handled terribly.

I really didn't like Cars 2, but who put Up on this list? That's one of my favorite animated movies!

Brave Brave Product Image

It's mainly high for the entire "Pixar Princess" controversy, it felt more like a mainstream Disney film than a Pixar movie. As other people have noted, The Scottish accents were not appealing, and the only one who isn't doing a scottish accent is John Ratzenberger just so people can scream "THAT'S THE VOICE OF HAMM! " people also say it's offensive to the scots, even people who like DuckTales say that (Scrooge is a huge Scot stereotype) - Maddox121

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?!?!

The Good Dinosaur The Good Dinosaur Product Image

As a huge fan of Pixar, this was the first Pixar movie that truly I truly felt leans more towards younger audiences rather than kids and adults (like most other Pixar movies). While the animation looks outstanding, and I was heavily invested by the realistic backgrounds in the film, I was bored by everything else the film had to offer. All the characters in this film I found incredibly bland and uninteresting, and it really hurts to say that because most other Pixar movie excels at character development and emotion. At least in Brave I thought Merida's dad and the triplets were hilarious, and her connection with her mom I could see at least some love put into, but I just couldn't find myself invested in any of the characters in The Good Dinosaur. Arlo's voice as well is super annoying, and he sounds like a whiny 6 year old boy, but I will admit that the rest of the voice actors do a decent job.

Overall, I was really disappointed by this movie, and considering the development ...more

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.

When I saw it in theatres, I was bored out of my mind, no humor (not even the WALL-E style of humor without dialouge) and it felt like National Geographic fused with the terrible Disney Movie called "Dinosaur"

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.

A Bug's Life A Bug's Life Product Image

This is mainly here thanks to DreamWorks fanboys and the fact A Bug's Land is the first Pixar land to be taken down. But it's still good.

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.

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

Monsters University Monsters University Product Image

I liked it and I still like it, personally, I think it relied too much on outdated college stereotypes but it was still a Monsters product with the doors and the kids and we learn how Mike met Sulley (unlike in the original film, when he said he met Sulley in Primary School) but that was confirmed to be "monster humor" after University came out. Mainly here due to Boo fans, but the film itself is good.

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?!?!?!

Cars Cars Product Image

I'm sorry, but no. This should not be on this list at all. It's one of the classic Pixar movies. It tells valuable human lessons through character of cars. A must watch! (PLus the sequels aren't bad. Cars 2 was told pretty much in Mater's point of view. It's a fun pass time.

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.

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

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.

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.

Ratatouille Ratatouille Product Image

Just because most of the dialogue is missing (this is France after all, hardly anyone speaks English) doesn't mean it's bad, but I found some parts boring and the villain is a Gordan Ramsey clone... How did I know that was coming in a film about food?

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

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

NOOO this movie was so good

Toy Story 2 Toy Story 2 Product Image

*smacks head against desk* 'enough said, this film is not bad at all - Maddox121

Toy Story 2 is actually my favorite in the trilogy.

To infinity and beyond well toy story 2 is really funny way better than the first toy story because Mr. potato head almost got smash while crossing the road this is the best toy story that Pixar made and woody is still my favorite character and my name is still Uriel.

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

The Incredibles The Incredibles Product Image

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

there are 22 movies (as of May 1 (2020) by Pixar... so every movie has to be on the list somewhere

The writing is just a little off. For example:

Syndrome starts off trying to kill the Incredibles (really, wants them dead), then he finally catches them and just keeps them prisoner.
Frozone has tried to stay out of the superhero game, other than the occasional going out with Bob Parr, even when danger is occurring. Then, all of a sudden, he decides to suit up.
And just what the heck happened to super villains like Bomb Voyage after the super heroes were banished? They weren't banished. You would have thought that, with the supers gone, they'd be taking over the world.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie (as most of Pixar's is), but it's not one of their best.

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.

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

Inside Out Inside Out Product Image

Yes the fanbase is bad but it's a good film. Welp, that wraps up the top 10 of the worst Pixar films. - Maddox121

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!

The Contenders

Finding Dory Finding Dory Product Image

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.

This Movie's Amazing

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

It's A Good Movie Though

Up Up Product Image

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.

I think Up started great, it had a really engaging and unique first act. But the middle and ending were just SO boring in my opinion. Not the absolutely worst I've seen, but to me not the best Pixar film either.

Wall-E Wall-E Product Image

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.

It's a good movie but most of the characters sucked and it had a terrible.

Toy Story 4

Just watched the trailers and it looks like it's gonna suck. Nothing appealed to me in any way whatsoever, didn't really find anything to enjoy in any of them. It probably will be an emotional film and that's probably it. They'll rescue Bo Peep and then be on their way back. A lot less excited for this movie now than I was previously, just shows that the franchise should've ended at Toy Story 3.

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?!

The Fact That It's A Love Story Just Ruins The Franchise at this point

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.

Cars 3

I LOVE THIS MOVIE. It has a great ending and plot. Way better than Cars 2. By a mile.

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

The Incredibles 2

This movie was a middle finger to the first film.

-Evelyn Deavor, as a villain, was a middle finger to Syndrome. She was a surprise villain, but there were a lot of foreshadows of her villain role, and her character writing was lazy, unroginal, and makes no sense.
-Too much obnoxious humor like Jack-Jack fighing a racoon, the same person imitating Edna, Violet squirting water out of her nose, and more.
-Bob, Violet, and Dash are out of character. Bob and Dash whine most of the time. I don't get what Dash is whinning about, Bob is complaining about his babysitting job, and Violet's relationship with her boyfriend, Tony, was too upleasant.
-Elastigirl being thicc is one of the stupidest character writing yet.
-The story felt repeated from the first movie except Bob and Helen swapped roles. How unbelievable Brad Bird wasted 11 years of his time (he spent 11 years making the story, 2 years of production, and the 14th year was the release date).

But the perfect ...more

Brad Bird is starting to run out of ideas. All he can think of is Bob babysitting his kids.

This was pretty good. The first one was way better, however. - AliciaMae

Bob Parr wars II:return of the cast

Finding Nemo Finding Nemo Product Image

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(


While I think it is way too overrated and praised by others, I will say this is at least pretty decent. The movie seemed kinda interesting and I liked the idea of it. - PerfectlyPink1210

Book of life had a completely different story and Book of Life's creator supported Coco

This will suck. Copying practically everything from the Book of Life. Nice job pixar.

Who ever put this movie on the list should go to hell this movie is a masterpiece

Monsters, Inc. Monsters, Inc. Product Image

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!

We know the setting just by reading the title. Same for Monsters university. - TeamRocket747

Planes Planes Product Image

This is not pixar

Ugh I hate this movie!

I like Cars movies better than Planes

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

Ratatoing Ratatoing Product Image

This is not a Pixar movie. This is an awful ripoff of a Pixar movie. - Treacle

Not Pixar, just a crappy knockoff OF a Pixar movie. - KalloFox34

Yeah, this is indeed the worst ever Pixar film.

Horrible ripoff. Also, not Pixar. - DinoLover4242

Lava Lava Product Image

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

The worst Pixar short. - DinoLover4242

Romance torturr - TeamRocket747

Frozen Frozen Product Image

What? This isn't a Pixar movie. - DinoLover4242

Isn't Pixar but still terrible

Tangled Tangled Product Image

First off, this movie was great, and second off, Pixar didn't make it.

Not all CGI movies are Pixar, people! - KalloFox34

Its not pixar

Onward Onward Product Image

just generic and boring, and doesn't feel like a Pixar movie.
