    It's hard to say what the worst is because none are really that bad. Monsters Inc. was a disappointment for me because I didn't find the plot that good. I thought Finding Nemo aimed too much for kids while most of the films had something for people of all ages.

    I think this is why I didn't care for Nemo as much. I don't have kids, so Pixar movies for me are about how well they entertain an adult.

    What I'm not sure about is all the sequels (Monsters Inc 2, Cars 2) and the next original one being a Disney Princess movie. As a 35 year old guy, I've just never been a big Disney Princess fan. Though, admittedly, I did find some things enjoyable about Princess and the Frog. Maybe because I'm a Jazz fan and love the old school cel animation look.

    Saying Pixar has made a bad movie is like saying the sky is green. It just isn't true. We own every one of them and everyone of them gets repeat viewings. Our sons sick/rainy day movie is Cars, followed closely by both Nemo and Wall-E.

    Wall-E by a wide margin...talk about preachy. Also, TS3 did not live up to the first two.

    maybe WALL·E but you would have to put a gun to my head(Taliban style) to make me say it was bad.

    They are all good, but I voted for the rat movie simply because I liked ti the least... but it was still good.

    I agree! in fact there are some Pixar movies I love the more I watch them. Up for one and Wall-E. When I first saw them I was luke warm but after a few viewing they are moving up on my list. Like Toy story, especially since they were the first) but not as much as my wife.

    It is possible that all these Pixar movies will be to this generations kids what Looney Tunes cartoons are for me now.

    Sorry, but I like 'em all.

    It's Disney other cartoon movies that miss the mark.

    Not a fan of Ratatouille; just can't get behind the premise that rats in a resteraunt kitchen are a good thing.

    Here is the Box Office Chart showing the grosses of the Pixar film, not adjusted for inflation.

    Personally, I thought that this discussion was interesting. Pixar does put emphasis on storytelling and script as well as the computer animation. In addition, whenever possible, they do strive for accuracy, although at times, liberties are taken. The movies are fun to watch, and like several had said, a bad movie from Pixar is still a good movie. I'm still surprised that the polls winner, The Incredibles, was the worst film, as I thought it was one of the best superhero films out there. Oh well.

    I generally don't bump old threads, but thought of this one when I saw this. Could this be the worst Pixar movie? I have not seen it, but from the tally on Rotten Tomatoes, it doesn't look good for Cars 2. Audiences like it better than the critics, but I don't think I've seen critics give a Pixar film such a low score. 52 fresh, 102 rotten.

    Not a chance...

    I saw it last weekend.
    If you came into the movie expexting the same story as Cars 1... you will be ticked.
    If you came into the movie expecting Lightning to be the primary, you will be ticked (Mater is).

    if you don't like Larry the Cable Guy (and Tow Mater)... you will be ticked.
    ----------

    The animation was OUTSTANDING... there are some sceens that I can't wait to see again on BluRay, as they are so realistic.

    The story was fun, action packed though..... it is a SPY movie with the Cars characters.

    For Me... Bug's Life is still the worst.

    I agree with what you're saying. It was a very different movie from the first. Was it derivative? Sure. But you know, when your target audience is so young, does it really matter if it rips off movie scripts from 40 years ago?

    It was an absolute visual feast. The level of detail and thought in the animation makes me glad that, for the first time in 8 months, I actually went to the theatre.
