Disney Pixar is one of the powerhouses when it comes to animated movies. Every film is brimming with stunning visual effects, heartwarming stories, and relatable characters. Some even have really out-of-this-world concepts, yet they provide great moral lessons for children and grown-ups, too.
Although everyone loves Disney Pixar movies, some fans find them a bit cliché and over-the-top. Others find them boring, and the plot does not live up to their expectations. Fans from Reddit share their sentiments about certain animated films. Here are their top five most overrated Disney Pixar movies:
Up is one of the most inspiring yet saddest Pixar films. Certainly, there are many life lessons that the viewers can take from here, but some would say it is too depressing to watch, especially for young audiences.
There are also happy and colorful moments in the movie, like the adventures Carl and Russell shared during their long trip. A Reddit fan, flawedconstellation, said that while Up is a great watch, “the rest of the movie after they reach the island is your standard adventure stuff, and actually a bit depressing.”
Ratatouille has surprisingly become a cult classic animated film because of its bizarre story. In the movie, Linguini aspires to become a chef, and he has been taught by a rat who is supposedly great at cooking. It is fun, energetic, and sometimes chaotic to watch.
One cannot deny how great the animation and visual effects of the show. PantsClock of Reddit confesses, “I love the setting, and Anton Ego is a really cool villain, but other than that, the movie is just eh.”
What’s better than Italian summer, beautiful coastlines, and wonderful graphics that come with Disney Pixar’s Luca? This is one of the few recent releases, and it follows the story of a young sea creature who ventures into the human world. Luca dreams of a life that is different from what he has always known.
The movie is indeed fascinating and joyful to watch. It talks about friendship, dreams, and courage. However, fans like imSOsalty from Reddit think, “I had only been watching for 20 minutes. I was that bored that I thought an hour had gone by. Everyone else I know loves it, my kid loves it, I just think it’s boring.”
One of Disney Pixar’s stories with a serious theme and unique plot, Brave is definitely not your typical fairytale princess story. Princess Merida of Kingdom DunBroch is on a quest to save her mother and reverse a curse that she put on her.
There are a lot of lessons to learn from this movie, mainly about family, trust, and independence. While it captures the essence of the story, for Sorry_Barley of Reddit, it is “bland, forgettable and anticlimactic.”
Incredible 2 (2018)
The sequel to The Incredibles franchise is action-packed and entertaining in the least. The superhero family comes back to save the world once more while maintaining their private lives.
Some fans find the story excellently written, and the visual effects are flawless as always. However, for ReadIt0nReddit, “It’s atrocious. As a movie on its own, it’s still only decent at best.”
