Most Overrated Movies


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Free Willy

To tell you the truth, this movie is nothing special. It's the same story we've seen a million times before. A young boy finds a creature and befriends it.

And plus, the young boy in this movie is an ass! He's horrible to his stepparents and he's just down right unlikable.

102Shakespeare In Love
103South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
104Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars is the most overstated movie in history. It's just dumb crap and lifesavers. George Lucas movies are the worst

I shall destroy everyone who hates this movie because it was pure perfection.

The majority of people who said this was the best movie of 2015 are probably just blind Star Wars fanboys

106Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

After flopping in Asia it was sent to America.....the rest is History - preachinpreach

Somehow Ang Lee manages to make his fight scenes fights look both unbelieveable and boring.

109Spider-Man 3

This is underrated, not overrated.

How is this overratedit was panned by critics and audiences alike

110Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

This movie is great! It's one of my favorite childhood movies!

It is no way true to the original book. Too much emphasis on songs, Oompa loompa songs sound like racist minstrel shows than the creative songs in the book, there are plot holes and it brings Charlie to the level of the bratty kids through the fizzy lifting drinks.

113The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
115Star Wars Episode I

This movie is underrated if anything, people just hate it because it's not as good as the original trilogy. But really, is that even possible?

Go to any Star Wars discussion and see how many people sight phantom menace as the best in the series because very few if any will say that I don't think it's the best but a lot of Star Wars fans hate it so it shouldn't be on the list - Gamer4life

I don't think this movie is underrated or overrated. It's just bad. My least favorite Star Wars movie, definitely.

Let change the word rated to hated - Thirdwind

116Citizen Kane

I can't believe that this movie is still concidered as the greatest movie of all time. I love the work of Orson Welles but this movie is definitively not his best. By far are his movies like for instance " A touch of evil ", " The lady from Shangai " way much better. The latter two movies are even better in camera work and techniques, not to mention the story and the script. Why " Citizen Kane " is so overrated is really beyond me 'cause if you watch all the work that Orson Welles has done then this one is not that great. It's just a good movie that you will watch once or twice, but that's about it. It's certainly not his best and even some non-Orson Welles at that time were better. Too overrated for sure.

How the hell is this not number 1? So many people consider this to be the best movie of all time, and it has aged very poorly. What was once revolutionary is now just a movie with basic film techniques, terrible acting (except from Orson Welles), and a plot that is downright BORING.

How anybody compares this to the Godfather is beyond any form of reason.

Great movie. Yes. Greatest movie of all time. No. -

It is not the greatest movie, it's still good, but it's reputation as the "greatest movie of all time" is really laughable as time went on.

I'd say it's a bit overrated, but Kevin Smith improved this with Mallrats and Chasing Amy. - BeatlesFan1964

118The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring

Lord Of The Rings And Anything Relating To It Is Awesome

Noo this is part of the best movie trilogy ever made

The entire series is overrated.

119Despicable Me 2

Overrated, Annoying the hype is everywhere! From curtains, to clothing, to stuffed animals, IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE.

I'm 18 years old girl and I really like this movie. I don't think it is overrated at all. This movie can be watched over and over again which is that what I do with this one and the first one only skipping little parts of it but watch most of it again. In fact I've been wanting to get minion or minion thing for a long time now and I will get it soon since where I live which is Canada has these things and since my birthday is coming up in 2 and a half week I can ask my parents to get them to me as part of a gift basket present. Having said that really liked the movie and is not overrated at all. - LucyLu18

Despicable me 1 was tolarable, but this one, adding almost no important storyline to the franchise, coming before the even worse " Minions" movie, was just so much to take. - alimarashian
