Top Ten Worst Things About Zootopia

The Top Ten

1 It's overrated

People only love and defend it for its "message" and overabundant pop culture references.

NOT "underrated". Just because a movie isn't Frozen doesn't mean it's "underrated".

I could've just written this movie off as decent but not the best use of 90 minutes I'll never get back, but then everybody else in the universe who has access to a movie theater, DVD rental, or streaming service had to go and declare it the best Disney movie of the last five years if not the greatest Disney movie of all time. All because of the Timely Message and not being "Frozen".

Um actually Zootopia is *not* underrated. Maybe your pwecious Strong Female Rabbit isn't all over little girls' underpants, but people rave about this movie contanstly and act like it's the best ever.

2 The fanbase

I think it's pretty bad - darthvadern

My gosh! The fanbase is insanely annoying!

The fanbase is Hypocritical Because They Hate Frozen For Being Overrated But Yet They Go Adore Zootopia which is even more overrated! - VideoGamefan5

You're just stereotyping the fanbase...

3 The furries

Furries aren't bad - Luckys

Guess so - darthvadern

Nearly all the items on this list have something to do with the fans. DCfnaf, please make a response post about this

Furries are gross and deserve to be shamed.

4 It's cliche

Not really - darthvadern

Really Cliche, the plot is absolutely awful as well - VideoGamefan5

5 People only like it because of its Great Timely Message

Lame jokes, one dimensional characters, a "plot twist" that stopped really being a twist three movies ago, and an annoying Shakira song that even some of her fans concede isn't her best material. But no, it's such an AMAZING movie, the BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER, the BEST MOVIE OF 2016 because of the message. Spare me.

The really sad part? They praise that The Message is there and use the fact that It exists against those who don't love this movie like they do, but they don't really GET the message. Charlottesville? Happened long after this movie and its Message came out and won an undeserved Oscar. Police brutality that may or may not be racially motivated though everyone always says it is? Still happening. Another item on this list is "All the arguing over which species supposedly represents what race". On the "Top Ten People/Things That Were Ruined by Their Fans" list, someone (a registered user, name withheld to protect the guilty) basically said anyone who doesn't love this movie "is probably some Alt-Right/Trumptard"- so much for anti-prejudice (which I've also seen argued to be The Message or at least part of it).

En Vogue manage to convey the same message in five minutes that this movie wastes two hours beating everybody over the head with.

When this movie won the Oscar for Best Disney Movie, (Best Animated Feature) it was not a contest of quality (b/c if it was, the win would've gone to a more deserving movie like Kubo and the Two Strings or even Moana) and more of a contest of which movie took the biggest indirect jab at Donald Trump. I actually find this in the same levels of overrated as The Lion King and Frozen where I think they are just good like a B or B+, but not an automatic A+ for one reason like The Lion King with Mustafa's death, Frozen with Let it Go, and now Zootopia with its message.

6 The fanart

Cringe is it certainly - darthvadern

Gross keep it away from me - VideoGamefan5

Nah, it's coming twords you VGF5

7 Bellwether is an awful villain

Well she's the worst - darthvadern

This actually ties into "it's predictable". By the time Zootopia came out we'd already seen a rather innocent-seeming character turn out to be the villain instead of the "more obvious" character twice (three times if you count the film where the innocent-seeming character was actually the villain in disguise) in a row.

The most Awful villain I've seen! - VideoGamefan5

8 The plot is a mess and it has no focus

How? - darthvadern

You copied that from the Frozen lists

Aand you don't bother to explain why. I didn't see any problems with the plot to be honest, but if you saw any, please explain. - DCfnaf

The Plot Is Awful, Its Basically...Oh Wait, I Forgot, Its That Bad, I Made A Parody About The Movie, And It Was Better Than The Movie Itself! - VideoGamefan5

9 The romance

Maybe there was no romance in the actual movie, but there's fanart of it out the wazoo. There's even a comic about it. And I'd bet money they will get together in at least one of the TWO planned sequels. Bonus: one will get a sex if not species change in the process for the sake of (more) progressive-ness.

It doesn't matter that they didn't "officially" become a couple. Fan fiction stories, fan art, and Tumblr posts abound over the "true love" Obnoxious Feminist Bunny and Wreck-It Ralph Wannabe Fox supposedly share. Those who make that stuff, THEY'RE the ones who need to be reminded that "Judy and Nick aren't even in love though" and that "They DO NOT have romantic feelings for each other."

Maybe it wasn't in the actual movie, but darn if there's not fanart (including Rule 34) of it everywhere.

To be fair, though, I don't think we have to worry too much about. The inevitable "Zootopia 2" or whatever they decide to call it will introduce a female potential love interest for Judy and a male love interest for Nick. Come on, the way Disney's been kowtowing to the bleeding-heart liberal/SJW/Tumblr crowd lately and not just with this movie, you know they're gonna.

10 It's predictable

I disagree - darthvadern

SO predictable - VideoGamefan5

As if you of all people could have predicted what would happen

Yeah, I totally didn't see the THIRD TIME IN A ROW DISNEY USED A "PLOT TWIST". </sarcasm>

The Contenders

11 Its influence on subsequent Disney films

Look no further than "Ralph Breaks the Internet". Another "timely" mess of pop culture and, for lack of a better term, woke-ness. Which of course everyone's going to say is the greatest thing ever and shoot down any who dare disagree. Though at least "Zootopia" got its message and junk out there without dragging down a far better movie that had preceded it.

Now I agree on that - darthvadern

12 Nick Wilde Officer Nicholas Piberius "Nick" Wilde is a male red fox and the deuteragonist of Zootopia. He is the son of Mrs. Wilde. He was voiced by actor, Jason Bateman.

He's the best character - darthvadern

Yeah He Sucks - VideoGamefan5

13 It tried too hard

Not only because of the aforementioned "timely message", but all the pop culture references (and the fact that there were so many), the "surprise" villain twist (as if the last THREE DISNEY MOVIES IN A ROW hadn't already done that, and how they went about presenting that Message.

Yay, iPhones! Yay Lady Gaga parody played by Shakira! Yay contemporary songs and movies getting name-checked! Yay that none of this is going to have any resonance five years (tops) from now!

I agree - darthvadern

14 It's boring

That is true - darthvadern

Honestly, I'm Glad I'm Not The Only One Who Hates This Movie, Sure I Changed My Opinion, But PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED AND ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINIONS! HA! - VideoGamefan5

15 All the arguing over which species supposedly represents what race

Prey Lives Matter? Predator Lives Matter? Which is it?

"The predators are black people"

"No, the predators are white people"

"Judy represents the blacks"

"Nick is a black man if there ever was one"

How is anyone even getting that Wonderful Message when they're arguing over how It was presented?

16 It's so firmly in the "love it or hate it" category, if you don't "love it" you're a pariah
17 It's just "Wreck-It Ralph" with a more "fortunate" release date and more "relateable" cast/setting

"Wreck-It Ralph" is the better movie by far and tackled prejudice. But no, not everyone's into video games (which is unfortunately why the sequel is going to see the arcade close and take place- ugh! - in the Internet) but of course everyone loves talking animals. Also, in WiR's day people weren't as super-sensitive about race, gender, etc. and there wasn't a bigot running for president/in office so people didn't feel that we "need(ed)" The Message as much as they do now and in March of 2016.

Unfortunately, it did influence Ralph's sequel

Guess so - darthvadern

18 Two sequels have been announced

What? - darthvadern

Yes, TWO

19 It tricks kids into liking it

With the (besides "Breaking Bad" and "The Silence of the Lambs") movie and technology references, you mean? That and/or the now-trite "you can do anything" (especially with "despite your genitals or color") cliche.

20 It has really brought out the worst in the Disney fandom

True - darthvadern

Yes, moreso than Frozen. Didn't think that was possible, but thanks to Zootopia I know it is.

21 All the animal puns

Not that bad - darthvadern

All the song titles, movie titles, and bands with whatever animal-related word they could force (Let It GOAT, Ara-BUNNY Nights, The BEAGLES, Part of Your WOOL, Wreck-It RHINO, PIG Hero 6, etc.) were more annoying than funny. That several of them were real stretches (for instance what the heck is an Ara-bunny, and who wants to part of someone's wool? ) didn't help at all.

22 Judy Hopps Officer Judy Hopps is the protagonist in Disney's 2016 animated feature film Zootopia. The first rabbit to be in Zootopia's police force, Judy is determined to make the world a better place while breaking preconceptions about other species. Teaming up with a fox named Nick Wilde, she sets off on her ...read more.

Overrated character - darthvadern

She's become the answer to "who's your favorite female Disney character", and before anyone cheers that Elsa is no longer the answer this means neither is Mulan, Tiana, Nani, Esmeralda, Merida, or Belle. Does she deserve it? No! She's one-dimensional just like everyone else in the movie.

23 It’s too preachy
24 It overshadowed Big Hero 6
25 It's too depressing
26 It's violent

Not bad thing - darthvadern

Oh boo hoo! Do you expect a movie about police to be all sunshine and rainbows?

@Cartoonfan202, I Didn't Even Add This Item - VideoGamefan5

27 It's taking over DeviantArt
28 It portrays the police in a completely positive light

Isn't that a good thing? - darthvadern

29 It has horrible animation

Not horrible but disappointing - darthvadern

Seriously, the animation is worse than Inside Out! Foodfight does not have bad animation, it has goregous looking animation

30 It puts people off of foxes and rabbits in general

Seriously, I can't even play any StarFox games anymore and have been taking far too much pleasure in having Lucina beat and slice Fox to death in Smash Bros.

31 It has a gay couple

Not a problem - darthvadern

32 The racism metaphor makes no sense
