Most Overrated Movies


The Contenders: Page 3XW


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

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

42The Wolf of Wall Street

I love the work of Martin Scorsese but this is one of his " not so good " movies. Actor Matthew McConaughey was a mistake for this movie. Overrated.

44American Hustle

I love Amy Adams and Christian Bale in this movie but I hated Jennifer Lawrence with her annoying voice and terrible accent ( it's her natural voice ). The movie was ok the first hour but after that it becomes a little boring, confused and not very realistic.

Whatchable because of Amy Adams. But if she was not in the movie it would be very doubtful.

This movie was so much fun. Bradley Cooper was awesome! - BeatlesFan1964

45The 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.

46Sin City

I didn't have as much of a problem with actors. The movie itself is just the dumbest thing you could possibly write. The camerawork is great though. But the story... Wait a minute, there's a story here? I thought it just guys who smoked too many cigarettes and Japanese ninja goddess Sonic carhops beating the snot out of people. Very artistic, as long as it's in black and white.

Really really boring movie, too much narrating

Why does everybody love this movie it sucks the story is confusing this should be number 1

Can't stand the acting. And Brittany Murphy - please go away with half of the narrators

47The Amazing Spider-Man

The Lizard is by far the worst developed villain ever put in a Spider-Man movie, he's working on cross-species genetics to try and regrow his arm, while also doing it because they think it can provide the cure for Norman Osborne who is dying, we never see Norman Osborne, not even once, they just keep telling Dr. Connors that he's dying. And they expect us to care about him. And plus, his big goal in this movie was regrowing his arm, so after that happens and he turns into the Lizard, the script has no idea what to do with him. So they just have him hide in the sewer and concoct the most idiotic plan a villain could have, turn all of New York into lizard creatures...WHERE DID THIS COME FROM!?! Seriously, he turns into the lizard, gets voices in his head JUST LIKE NORMAN OSBORNE IN THE FIRST SPIDER-MAN MOVIE, and randomly decides to turn the city into lizards

THE SPIDERMAN TRILOGY was fantastic and spiderman 3 underrated while the reboot amazing spiderman was mediocre and too overrated while amazing spiderman 2 was okay its still way too overrated while spiderman 3 is underrated.

As a Spider-Man fan, this film is such a disappointment. the film suffers with a poorly written script making the protagonist unlikable and the antagonist bland, poor pacing with scenes and unfunny jokes going for too long or important scenes going by in a flash, characters being featured for barely half the film until disappearing from the picture entirely, and trying and failing to hide the flaws of the film with slight references to the comic for the fans of the original source material. by the way, the sequel makes Spider-Man 3(2007) look like Spider-man 2(2004) in comparison - HensilFilms

48Dumb and Dumber

This is childish comedy made for even dumber idiots. Typical American crap.

This movie is intentionally dumb, sure it's funny, but it's not the best comedy ever. - BeatlesFan1964

This movie is actually UNDERRATED!

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

A bit overrated but still a lot of fun.

Borefest with no explanations or foundation in reality whatsoever. Also: Call of Duty snow scooter shootout. Yawn.

Can it be any harder to follow

As a huge racing fan, I used to like this movie when it came out (I was about 8 years old) and I hate it now. Never even watched the second one. The whole series just gives racing a bad name. I didn't realize that then because I was young and ignorant, but I realize it now. - mister83

Why do a lot of people hate this movie? It's actually a good movie. It's just the second one that's not as good as this one.

52Forrest 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.

Absolutely hated this ridiculously, boring, weird movie.

54Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
55The English Patient

Possibly the longest, most boring, self indulgent piece of crap I've ever had the misfortune of watching. 2.7 hours of my life that I'll never get back.

Why does this need to win 9 Academy Awards

56Chicken Little
57Fight Club

Clearly those who dislike this movie are too stupid to understand it. It's a masterpiece and should be commemorated for being amazing.

If Brad Pitt is in it, then, it must be bad because he is simply not a good actor.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought this movie was stupid, just had a cool name

Too much violence for nothing. Pure sensationalism. What a bore!

58The Dark Knight Rises

Just because "the dark knight" is a good movie, do not mean that "the dark knight rises" is a good one. The movie has so many plot holes! And Bane is not scary at all! - hurrhurrman

The movie is boring and gives Batman more punishment than any others. It is a total disgrace to Batman because in the hole, he takes advice from pedophiles.

I dislike the overly dark tone. Batman should be dark but it should also have a sense of fun, which this doesn't.

Overrated for sure! No where near as good as the first two.

59Dolphin Tale 2
60Despicable Me

I agree with the other person get this off the list! I'm 18 years old girl and I really liked this movie. It is fun and entertaining and can be watched over and over again which is exactly what I do sometimes only I skip little parts of it but most of it I will watch again. Also I've been wanting to get a minion toy or a minion so that I can have it as an souvenir ( although it won't count as that if I get from where I live which is Canada which I know I can since I already saw many of that). - LucyLu18

I can't stand all the publicity this thing got. It's a decent movie, but after a while, it gets repetitive and predictable. I liked it the first time I watched it, but every time after, it got a little more stale. It was meant just to appeal to kids with those yellow things, and have a cheesy message.

We are not saying it's bad just people ALWAYS watch it get minion toys talk about it all the overrated stuff

This is A Great Movie! Get It off The list
