* [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xwe1to_joshua-and-the-promised-land-wmv_shortfilms?start=694#.UW1udCtvtQc This]] animated adaptation of the story of Joshua, Moses' apprentice, titled '''''Joshua and the Promised Land'''''. The character designs, which are ''supposed'' to be bipedal lions, are stiff and uninspired (and includes a [[AnimalGenderBender female lion with a mane]]), the animation looks like it was done by a sixth grader using Autodesk Maya for the first time (faces hardly show good expression, mouth movements are nonexistent, it's impossible to tell what various objects are at times due to horrid texturing, etc.), and the voices sound bored and sometimes fail to grasp the concept of audio levels (the kid who played the titular Joshua sometimes [[NoIndoorVoice shouts his lines]] to the point of distortion). And then there's the story itself, which has its own slew of problems, including one of the most annoying examples of MrExposition ever put to film.

%% "The Emoji Movie" has yet to be determined if it qualifies as this or not. Despite the terrible ratings and bashing from critics and viewers, the film is still fairly recent, so please don't add that example just yet.

%%* '''''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie''''' was a production doomed by its very [[AudienceAlienatingPremise concept]]: InAWorld inside a smartphone, where each emoji has its own specific role it can fill, one, Gene, has several, and feels constricted by his designated role of "meh." For this, he is cast out of Textopolis. In the meantime, the phone's owner, Alex, tries to woo his crush while beginning a new chapter of his life. When the "meh" emoji he's texted goes haywire, he sets out to factory-reset the phone. The story is [[ClicheStorm clichéd]], insultingly predictable, [[{{Anvilicious}} embarrassingly unsubtle]], and self-contradictory, obviously trying at points to will itself into being any one of several far more successful films made in the past four years. That's saying nothing about the rote, uninspired attempts at humor (many of which date the film right away) or the embarrassingly heavy-handed dialogue. Most of the characters are by design one-note, and the ones that aren't are just boring. By and large, the most effort in this film went to the ProductPlacement, which takes up huge chunks of the film and all but derails any semblance of a plot. It debuted at half its $50 million budget and still has yet to break even, even on the international market. While its very announcement was met with scorn across the Internet, review sits don't treat it much better; its Metacritic page currently stands at 12 out of 100, its Rotten Tomatoes page currently stands at 7% (the second-lowest score thus far for an animated film) and its rating is 1.8 on Website/IMDb, placing it squarely in [[http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom the site's bottom ten]]. The sad part is, Creator/TJMiller left his role on ''Series/SiliconValley'' to star in this film. Would you believe Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation president Christine Bell chose this picture as the beginning of an animation renaissance for the company? Watch Creator/ChrisStuckmann [[https://youtu.be/r2XO5i59wUg tear this movie a new one.]] WebVideo/AniMat also tears the film apart [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydvQB-4bBfQ here]].

* While ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' was always a LoveItOrHateIt show, the DirectToVideo GrandFinale of the entire series in '''''The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie''''' is something that not even the show's fans can defend. Virtually every joke is made as offensively grotesque as possible, and is either [[OverlyLongGag drawn out]], [[TakeThat mean-spirited]], or both, without any bit of tact or good jest. The movie's highlights include a RunningGag of Captain Hero [[ILoveTheDead having a hideously decaying corpse as his girlfriend]] that constitutes his entire role in the movie, a ''five-minute long'' scene of the gang watching the DVDCommentary whilst complaining about how boring it is, and a ''full-on porn sequence'' forty minutes in. The painfully weak UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash animation makes the experience much worse, and especially shows its shortcomings when they enter Clara's Disney-esque homeworld. Dominating the second half is a bitter ShallowParody of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' that operates on the belief that the show gets away with its brand of VulgarHumor by being [[{{Satire}} "relentlessly preachy" about the issues they portray]]. This culminates in an {{anvilicious}} [[AuthorTract spiel]] about [[UnfortunateImplications how they should be able to be as vulgar as they want without any need for moral justification]], which demonstrates a complete misunderstanding as to what makes that kind of humor work. WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjrqGQTXVek tackled the film]] for [[MilestoneCelebration his 100th Animated Atrocity]], and to this day considers it the worst thing he's ever reviewed or ever will review. [=PhantomStrider=], an admitted fan of the show, [[https://youtu.be/KGLmgvEsuW8?t=12m43s has no problem placing it among]] [[https://youtu.be/S4Toc1kzRII?t=17m50s the worst pieces of animation ever]]. Emer Prevost (another fan of the series) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLICSBZR-_o also has no problems talking about the problems of it whatsoever]], even under his third year of Reaction & Review (with 3D glasses worn as well).

The story is [[ClicheStorm clichéd]], insultingly predictable, [[{{Anvilicious}} embarrassingly unsubtle]], and self-contradictory, obviously trying at points to will itself into being Creator/{{Disney}} or Creator/{{Pixar}} at their [[Disney/WreckItRalph respective]] [[WesternAnimation/InsideOut best]] (while also being a blatant ripoff of ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''). That's saying nothing about the rote, uninspired attempts at humor, many of which date the film right away. Most of the characters are by design one-note, and the ones that aren't are just boring. By and large, the most effort in this film went to the ProductPlacement, which takes up huge chunks of the film and all but derails any semblance of a plot. It's a critical failure -- the Metacritic page currently stands at 9 out of 100, and its Rotten Tomatoes page currently stands at 6%, making it the [[WesternAnimation/HappilyNEverAfter second]] lowest-rated animated movie ''ever'' (even ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Delgo}}'' got higher review scores, getting 9% and 12% respectively!) -- as well as a BoxOfficeBomb. Despite a huge wave of marketing hype and publicity, poor word of mouth doomed it to make back only $37 million of its $50 million budget, and that's counting international markets; its domestic returns were an even more dismal $25 million. Its only positive reviews on RT are from the parental guide website Common Sense Media and a Spanish critic who was apparently ''really'' reaching to find something to not hate about it (he ended up [[DamnedByFaintPraise praising the integration of the product placement]]), along with three other reviews (these are mixed at best). It's also received a rating of '''1.4''' on Website/IMDb, and has wound up at various spots on the site's [[http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom Bottom 100 list]].

* '''''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie''''' was a production doomed by its very [[AudienceAlienatingPremise concept]]: InAWorld inside a smartphone, where each emoji has its own specific role it can fill, one, Gene, has several, and feels constricted by his designated role of "meh." For this, he is cast out of Textopolis. In the meantime, the phone's owner, Alex, tries to woo his crush while beginning a new chapter of his life. When the "meh" emoji he's texted goes haywire, he sets out to factory-reset the phone. The story is [[ClicheStorm clichéd]], insultingly predictable, [[{{Anvilicious}} embarrassingly unsubtle]], and self-contradictory, obviously trying at points to will itself into being Creator/{{Disney}} or Creator/{{Pixar}} at their [[Disney/WreckItRalph respective]] [[WesternAnimation/InsideOut best]] (while also being a blatant ripoff any one of ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''). several far more successful films made in the past four years. That's saying nothing about the rote, uninspired attempts at humor, many humor (many of which date the film right away.away) or the embarrassingly heavy-handed dialogue. Most of the characters are by design one-note, and the ones that aren't are just boring. By and large, the most effort in this film went to the ProductPlacement, which takes up huge chunks of the film and all but derails any semblance of a plot. It's a critical failure -- It debuted at half its $50 million budget and still has yet to break even, even on the international market. Its Metacritic page currently stands at 9 12 out of 100, and its Rotten Tomatoes page currently stands at 6%, making it the [[WesternAnimation/HappilyNEverAfter second]] lowest-rated 7% (the second-lowest score thus far for an animated movie ''ever'' (even ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth'' film) and ''WesternAnimation/{{Delgo}}'' got higher review scores, getting 9% and 12% respectively!) -- as well as a BoxOfficeBomb. Despite a huge wave of marketing hype and publicity, poor word of mouth doomed it to make back only $37 million of its $50 million budget, and that's counting international markets; its domestic returns were an even more dismal $25 million.

It's also received a rating of '''1.4''' is 1.8 on Website/IMDb, and has wound up at various spots on the site's placing it squarely in [[http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom Bottom 100 list]]. Worst of all, the site's bottom ten]]. The sad part is, Creator/TJMiller left his role on ''Series/SiliconValley'' to star in this film.
