** Although most people agree that ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' is a good movie, whether or not it's up to their standards depends on who you ask (in contrast to other Pixar movies, where there's usually a definite opinion).

* DorkAge: After [[WesternAnimation/WallE a]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} hot]] [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 streak]] towards the end of the 2000s, Pixar ran into a series of films that had poorer reception between [[TheNewTens 2011-2013]], with other films in production at the time feeling the whiplash. ''Cars 2'' began it, being the studio's first film in its entire history to be a critical flop, as well as its first since the creation of the "Best Animated Feature" Oscar not to get a nomination. Their next [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} two]] [[WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity films]] were [[BrokenBase incredibly polarizing]], and while ''Brave'' won the aforementioned Oscar, it was generally considered undeserving over ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. As their next film, ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', entered [[TroubledProduction hot waters]], John Lasseter caught on and decided to [[ScheduleSlip postpone it]] to save the studio further embarrassment. The next film in the roster, ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', was critically lauded as another Pixar masterpiece and a return to form... and then ''The Good Dinosaur'' finally came out, was written off as [[SoOkayItsAverage aggressively mediocre]], became the studio's first financial flop and left [[BrokenBase many worried]] that ''Inside Out'' was just a fluke. Even before all of this, John Lasseter acknowledged that the studio had entered an awkward transitional period as the original creators were [[PassingTheTorch training up-and-coming filmmakers to succeed them]], but the successors weren't turning out the kind of films they were looking for (Lasseter being the head of both Pixar ''and'' Disney also undoubtably put a strain on his own contributions). Thankfully, ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' was successful and well-enough received to save the studio some face. Time will tell if ''Cars 3'' and ''Coco'' end up have a similar effect to what happened with ''The Good Dinosaur'' and ''Inside Out'' (albeit in reverse), though hopes for both ''Toy Story 4'' and ''The Incredibles 2'' remain very high.

** Fans noticed all of Pixar's movies were all male-lead and started asking for some films starring women and girls to balance it out. Pixar has since responded with ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', and while the fandom seems split on whether the former is a positive step forward or not, being criticized as a stereotypical princess movie, the latter did much better critically and financially. Time will tell of this part of the fandom's opinion on ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory''.

* DorkAge: After the universal acclaim of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', Pixar ran into a series of films that had poorer reception. The actual Dork Age lasted between [[TheNewTens 2011-2013]], but there were lingering problems with the films released in the years after that period. ''Cars 2'' began it, being the studio's first film in its entire history to be a critical flop, as well as its first since the creation of the "Best Animated Feature" Oscar not to get a nomination. Their next [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} two]] [[WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity films]] were [[BrokenBase incredibly polarizing]], and while ''Brave'' won the aforementioned Oscar, it was generally considered undeserving over ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.

Even before all of this, John Lasseter acknowledged that the studio had entered an awkward transitional period as the original creators were [[PassingTheTorch training up-and-coming filmmakers to succeed them]], but the successors weren't turning out the kind of films they were looking for. Luckily, the runaway success and critical acclaim of ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' strongly indicate that the studio has found its footing again. Time will tell if ''Cars 3'' and ''Coco'' end up have a similar effect to what happened with ''The Good Dinosaur'' and ''Inside Out'' (albeit in reverse), though hopes for both ''Toy Story 4'' and ''The Incredibles 2'' remain very high.

** Because it's a spin-off of the ''Franchise/{{Cars}}'' movies, non-''Cars'' fans tend to blame Pixar for ''Disney/{{Planes}}'', despite it actually being made by [=DisneyToon=] Studios.

** Due to most of the Pixar fandom not being fond of the Cars franchise, some of them tend to blame Pixar for the Planes movies thinking that Pixar was behind the movie, when in reality it was made by Disneytoon and not Pixar.

* ToughActToFollow: Their ''entire'' filmography. Most critics agree that any Pixar film with [[TheBGrade a rating less than 90%]] is a disappointment. In fact, one of the best things you could say about the studio was that [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} their worst film]] (for [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 a time]], at least) was ''still'' a critical success.
