21The Lion King

Who put this here? It may be overrated, but for a very, VERY GOOD reason.

If it's overrated for a good reason, then it isn't overrated, it's just highly rated. - djh101

I like this movie but it's the most overrated family movie EVERR period.

Overrated is not always bad movie like this case it is good movie but very overrated and everyone give a credit more than it deserve - Thirdwind

While this movies is decent it rips off not one but two other movies neither of which has gotten nearly as much praise

22Hotel Transylvania

It's a little bit chaotic ( too many characters ). The second movie was totally different and way much better. For once it seems that they learned from their mistakes. This one ; not that good and overrated. The second one ; good and strangely for some reasons underrated.

23How to Train Your Dragon

People like this movie because it has fantastic animation, likable characters, A good message, and, let's face it, Toothless is adorable.

I don't get why people liked it so much!

It's a really good movie but I think Chris Sanders did a better job with Lilo and stitch back in 2002

Overrated, but it deserves it. It's an amazing movie

24American Beauty

Worst movie ever to win the Best Picture Oscar. there are not many movies out there that infuriate me as much as this one. Not a single character worth caring about, and a stupid script, bad acting, and boring as hell. No sane, intelligent human being would think this was a good film.

I mean, come on, a guy who's filming plastic bags in the wind and we're supposed to say " Wow, what a great movie " (? ).

UH! Utterly atrocious quirky that has hateful characters and condones lifestyle choices (stalking underage women, drug taking) that makes this film anger inducing to the extreme. The best part is when Spacey is shot in the head, to be honest. - Mrveteran

Great film. Before I saw it, I hated it due to it beating The Matrix for Best Picture. After I saw the movie, I was so wrong. This movie is terrific. - BeatlesFan1964

25The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I consider Spider-Man 2 to be overrated instead of the amazing version. This movie was hated by people saying this is worse than the first amazing spiderman so I don't consider this overrated.

This movie was praized by fans because : "It is the best Spider-Man movie sice Spider-Man 2" When in reality it is worse than Spider Man 3.
Bad villians, poor edition and an awful ending.

26Paranormal Activity

All of these have such slow build up. The commercials always promise that, "the last 15 minutes will scar you for life." It's true because I'm scarred for wasting my money. - VicarSlayer23

I hate all of these movies. All of them.

27Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is a great movie, but it is a little too overrated by many critics. Now, I do not hate the film, I myself like it, Robert Zemeckis is a good director (Back to the Future). It is a fun and cheerful drama with an entertaining performance by Tom Hanks. However, I was not happy with the fact that this movie won the Best Picture Oscar for 1994 over The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. In all honesty, Pulp Fiction should've won the Best Picture Award because of many reasons. One, it has much better writing than Forrest Gump's sappy and sentimental script. Two, the non-linear, intertwining stories are marvels of cinema and revolutionized film-making. Three, an AMAZING ensemble cast: John Travolta, Samuel. L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames. Even the small roles played by Christopher Walken and Harvey Keitel are unforgettable; that clearly shows how superior PF was to FG. Fourth, direction, Zemickis's FG was very predictable and he did a little bit of a ...more

This is the most absolutely horrendously STUPID film I've ever seen in my life! The director has as much talent as a leech with a hot rock in its face. He can't tell whether anyone is following a script, which must have been written in the alien language of Zyxxyzzy before being poorly translated into a dialect that they didn't understand. The acting itself is all very basic and uninspired; not putting a thought into how serious or silly it sounded, making every second of this film more dull than Vertigo. Everything about this film lacks any sense of quality, and that's why I loathe it to infinity.

I'm a big fan of Sally Field ( in fact the only good thing in this movie ) but it's almost a pity that she did this stupid movie. And that cheap philosophy line about life is like a chocolate box really annoys me!

One of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. I was utterly bored by this pathetically overrated and completely boring movie. How can people love this slop? It boggles the mind.

28Inception

A terrific movie in every sense of he word

A bit overrated but still a lot of fun.

Mind numbingly boring and very overrated. That's all I have to say about that crap.

It's interstellar that's overrated

29The Wizard of Oz

This is a classic! As I said with Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this movie is FAR from being overrated. This movie is even arguably better than The Godfather.

To the dumbass who said this was boring, dumb and cheesy, please keep in mind that this movie is over 75 years old!

Watch this movie, play " Pipers at the gate of dawn " by Pink Floyd and smoke a certain substance and you will be the happiest person.

I love this movie! It was funny, sad, and scary at the same time. But we are all entitled to our own opinion.

30Kill Bill - Volume One

The fights (with the exception of the one at the beginning) are pretty lackluster and for a movie that gets endless amounts of praise for it's originality, it doesn't seem very original; especially when one considers the fact that it's made up almost entirely of other movies. This would be fine had it done the other movies justice, but.. Well, lets just say I'm calling it overrated for a reason.

Quentin Tarantino likes to make movies about girls who kill people in impossible ways. It's very genius, if you don't actually think about it.

This movie is a collage of 60's and 70's movies and lacks because of that real originality.
Even the soundtrack is a sort of compilation of past hits. This is already enough said that this movie is one of the most overrated films of all time. The success of this movie is because too many kids without a background in past b-movies are praising Tarantino as the new visionnary of our time ( wich he's clearly not ).

31Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

Finding someone else who doesn't like Star Wars is one of the most difficult things I've ever tried, it's like half the Earth loves Star Wars, and I never understood why, it's really lame, the whole I am your father thing wasn't as cool to me as everyone claimed it is, they were like "oh my god that's one of the best movie twists ever! " But honestly it wasn't that cool to me, and this movie at times is REALLY boring, even the action wasn't that interesting, and all the space Battles weren't cool either mostly because the effects are REALLY dated, also why do all the fans think these movies are perfect? Literally everyone I talk to who says Star Wars is awesome says the original trilogy was completely flawless, did they just choose to ignore any problems the movies had? I just don't like Star Wars and maybe one day I'll finally meet someone who agrees with me

It's a good movie. But people call this flawless and the greatest movie of all time. For the record, not every movie is perfect. Frozen has its flaws (the villain? ), but it's still a great movie. This one is treated like God made it. But if Lucas didn't make this, then where would special effects be now? This is good, but not as good as everyone says. You have to understand that it's been almost forty years since this movie was released, and there are better movies out there. The Force Awakens was much cooler than this, although it felt the same as this one.

A good movie. When it came out I remember that this movie was very entertaining and the special effects were amazing to watch on the big screen. The problem came afterwards when the movie became such a succes ( for a good reason ) and people became obsessed with it ( especcialy after the first trilogy ). I don't think that this movie is overrated but it's the all " Star wars concept " that in time became overrated by fanatics.

No Star Wars Movie is Overrated. They are seven of the best movies ever made.

Awful Film, It Ruined Marvel, Why Would Anyone Like This? - VideoGamefan5

33The Smurfs

It's not really overrated because people hate the live action versions. The only smurfs movie I hate is the second one.

It can't be overrated if no-one thought it was good in the first place

How is this overrated? It's garbage.

This isn't overrated

34Scarface

This should be in the top 10 part of this list. Plus, this film's fanbase is among the worst.

Seriously bores me to death.
One good bit in this movie and it's at the end with all the shooting.

Drags on and seriously one of the worst overrated movies I've ever seen

Okay this is little bit of overrated - zxm

This is the best movie ever! How is this even here?!

35The Notebook

I think this movie really doesn't belong in this list. It's a movie because of the story that you like or don't like, but the film itself is very well done. And the acting of Rachel McAdams is certainly not overrated.

36Iron Man 3

I didn't find the film really awesome as how everyone said. I will give it 6/10.

Slightly better than Iron Man 2. But still the movie is bad.

Hey this movie was more overrated than The Avengers.

This was my favorite iron man movie.

37The Social Network

I can't believe that they nominated Jesse Eisenberg at the Oscars for this movie. This actor is so annoying to hear ( Always speaking too fast like he's on meth in every movie he does ). The movie itself didn't give something new or revealing. It was too slow and after the movie you will ask yourself " what's the point? ". OVERRATED!

I like this movie but the fact it got a nomination for Jesse Eisenberg as the Best Leading Actor made me laugh. He ruined this film - trashy acting. - Alexandr

I like this movie because Andrew Garfield

38Spider-Man 2

Oh, definitely! Far from terrible, but Mary Jane and Peter Parker were pretty damn bad in this film. Doc Ock turned good at the end of the film (unlike after 50 years of comics) and they turned a powerful storyline into something decent yet dull. Why are the newer movies hated again?

I liked this movie, but to be honest it's not as amazing as they say it is.

Spiderman 2 is overrated. But not as much as The Avengers or Iron Man 3.

This is one of the best superhero movies that deserves the praise. - VicarSlayer23
