    Of those I've seen:

    Best: Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

    Worst: Shrek the Third

    Underrated: Madagascar (not the best story or most memorable characters, but it was damn funny. Laughed out loud many many times during this movie)

    Overrated: I think reaction has been fair to the ones I've seen

    I haven't seen all of these. But...

    Best: Shrek 2

    Worst: Shark Tale

    Underrated: Madagasgar. It wasn't fantastic, but has some very funny lines.

    Overrated: Also Shark Tale

    Worst: Over the Hedge and Madagascar. Madagascar was just like Disney's "The Wild"; Cheap and sucky.

    Best: The Prince of Egypt. That's just some incredible animation there.

    Over rated: Shrek. I just can't stand the thing.

    Under rated: No Comment.

    Didn't Dreamworks also do Hooded? That was a funny animated film .

    Antz - 1998 (saw it; it was decent)
    The Prince of Egypt - 1998 (saw it; enjoyed it immensely!)
    Chicken Run - 2000 (didn't see it)
    Joseph: King of Dreams - 2000 (didn't see it)
    The Road to El Dorado - 2000 (didn't see it)
    Shrek - 2001 (saw it; enjoyed it!)
    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron - 2002 (didn't see it)
    Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas - 2003 (saw it; enjoyed it!)
    Shark Tale - 2004 (didn't see it)
    Shrek 2 - 2004 (didn't see it)
    Madagascar - 2005 (didn't see it)
    Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit -2005 (didn't see it)
    Flushed Away - 2006 (didn't see it)
    Over the Hedge - 2006 (didn't see it)
    Shrek the Third - 2007 (didn't see it)
    The Bee Movie - 2007 (didn't see it)
    Kung Fu Panda -2008 (haven't seen it yet)

    So, um, yeah, of the four of those I saw, I liked Prince of Egypt most, followed by Sinbad, Shrek, and Antz.

    I'd say the Shrek movies are probably the most overrated. The first one was good and fun, but the series as a whole is just way overhyped. I haven't bothered to see the other two partly because they just don't interest me that much.

    Thanks MJ, so added.

    Just to add a comment, I really don't consider "Chicken Run" and "Wallace and Gromit" as Dreamworks films, as Aardman had well established it's style (and even the Wallace and Gromit characters well before Dreamworks even existed)

    Best
    Prince of Egypt
    Kung Fu Panda
    Madagascar - not worthy of an Academy Award but a nice movie

    Worst
    Antz - Tried to copy Bug's Life, and made it unappealing and too adult
    Shark Tale - Tried to match Nemo underwater
    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron - the voice over was a horrible idea, just a bad movie
    Flushed Away - Tried to run the rat race with Ratatouille, and got butchered
    Over the Hedge - Couldn't stand the story, the characters, or the voices
    The Bee Movie - I love Seinfeld, but this movie was awful

    Underrated
    Road to El Dorado - hey, I like the action animation movies
    Sinbad - ditto

    Overrated
    Shrek - Really, I liked the movie, But can only stand so much before it make me sick and turn green
    Shrek 2 - This Concept wore out it's welcome REAL QUICK.

    Tired and Worn Out
    Shrek the Third - Unfortunately, not the tombstone for character.
    Most "SNL type" characters just don't transfer to the big screen very well.
    And then they are so OVERused that they are like the infamous "fish after 3 days"

    Best?
    Shrek 1, Shrek 2, Ants
    Worst
    Shrek 3

    Almost one of the best -- Spirit, the first act rocked, but it died at midpoint.

    Best:
    Kung Fu Panda

    Worst:
    Antz (the entire situation in the animation industry as Dreamworks attempted to finish first is almost reason enough)

    Underrated: Spirit

    Overrated: Shrek

    Haven't seen many of these, but I can say that Shark Tale was one of the worst films I've seen.

    The Shrek series is far too overrated. I don't even see why it's that popular.

    I've seen a handful of these.

    Best: Shrek, Shrek 2, Chicken Run, Wallace & Gromit

    Worst: I didn't even bother with the ones that looked like they sucked.

    Overrated: Probably Shrek the Third & Shark Tale even though I didn't see them

    Underrated: Madagascar & Over the Hedge. Both had several bust out laughing moments for me.

    Is Flushed Away really overrated, Joe? From most people's list, it's the worst. I actually quite enjoyed it.
