Top 5 Dreamworks Movies Of All Time
Real Dreamworks fans know how underrated and overshadowed the animation studio used to be. They were great with their first film out of the animation studio, Antz. However, the company has been through a lot over the years. They've been restructured and acquired by Universal while some of our favorite projects were postponed or cancelled indefinitely. These things caused Dreamworks to drop off into obscurity while studios like Pixar, Disney and Illumination soared ahead in the box office.
Through the good and the bad, Dreamworks has released some box office hits and some serious duds. Remember The Boss Baby or Bee Movie? Probably not. But hits like Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda have had many fans in the seats and sequels to watch. We've combed through the Dreamworks movie library and handpicked the top five Dreamworks movies of all time, you can find most of these on cable TV providers like DISH and DirecTV as well as streaming service like Sling and AT&T Now.
