When it comes to the horrible life lessons from Disney movies, there are a lot of them. Some are philosophical, hitting the core of human morality, while others are simpler. Disney movies can instill these harsh and even awful lessons through fun and colorful images. From kids to online users, some of the best Disney movies and their lessons can, and should, be avoided by everyone.

A life lesson from these movies should not be taken literally. For example, if you were to take Aladdin, one of the classic Disney movies, you can see it shows an easy way of opening up a melon — crack it with your knee. In reality, it is almost impossible to do it. Luckily, their movies do what they want, and it is left to us, the viewers, to judge the lesson's application in real life.

BTLOTM replied: "You know it could also be... a drying pan."

heartlikeabomb comments: "We just talked about this in our staff meeting this morning (I’m a social worker) because we have a teen girl who was hitting her sister and eventually upgraded to using a cast iron skillet. Some coworkers were talking about video games but I said she probably learned it from Tangled."

Disney hates 2 parent families ... it's not depressing enough. One has to be devastated to become great.

Just because you can’t see the waves doesn’t mean the sea is still, there are always ripples, you can’t make everyone happy and no matter what there is always fighting, but the few people who you can make happy reach out and make other people feel better too, just like when one person is having a bad day they usually can get angrier easily

YES. All the characters are young and live "happily ever after" because they found a spouse. It's not like that.

BlushBrat replied: "And that's what a lot of people miss and Hunchback of Notre Dame. Esmeralda is used to comparing Quasimodo's character, and Frollo's character. Frollo wants to possess her, and can't fathom the idea of her choosing differently, where Quasimodo is like if she just wants to be my friend, then I'm okay with that."

I don’t think there is such thing as ugly, No matter what every person has something beautiful about them, and it stands out, people are amazing, whether or not they think that of themselves, Everyone has at least 1000 things about themselves that is beautiful.

Nah this had a deeper message than that. Ariel saw there were good in humans, tolerant and wanted to learn more about them. She was educating herself instead of living in ignorance and hate like King Triton did.

Maiclopedia replied: "It poked fun at it, but it didn't do a very good job. It was wrong for Anna to marry Hans, who she had known for 2 hours, but it was OK for Kristoff to try and save her with true love's Kiss after knowing her for... 20 hours! What a difference! I know that in the end, it was Anna's love for Elsa that did the trick, but I always found that part funny."

Ellausy replied: "I love this movie, severely underrated. It shows how hard work is necessary for life to prosper, even when your circumstances are not the best. And that sometimes, you don't have to do it all alone, good friends and hard work make things so much better.

I find that the more modern movies don't rely on this wishful thinking as much as the older ones."

start_the_mayocide replied: "The real lesson of this movie is at the beginning. The witch cursed everyone for something one person did. The lesson being is that collective punishment is real and will happen to you if you associate with the wrong people by chance. All those servants in the castle were cursed for having a job and associating with the Beast. It wasn't their fault but were cursed and the only way to lift the curse was to hope that an a*shole fell in love."
