Most Overrated Movies

preachinpreach
Many won't agree at first I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.

The Top Ten

1 Titanic

They met, had sex, boat sank, he died, she died. There is the whole movie in ten words.

I liked this movie but aside from the two main characters, all of them are just hateable. There's this unnecessary villain who framed Jack for robbery and trapped him in the titanic which results them (Jack and Rose) to get trapped in the Titanic. Also, wanna know who's the most hateable characters in the movie? The entire crew of the movie! These bastards are the reason why half of the people had to die. First off, they let the women and children go and then trap some people on the hallways. We all understand that people die during the faithful day of the titanic sank. But there should be a better explanation on why people died, not because the crew refused to pick up the people who are trapped in the water at first sight. This isn't a bad movie and it did hit me in an emotional level, but it's the unnecessary sub-plot involving a villain that ruined this movie from unleashing its full potential.

What a piece of junk!

Went to see the movie with my wife in the 1990's and, with all the other guys in the crowd rolling their eyes for 2 hrs, all cheered on the inside when this boat sank so we could get out of there.

Pocahontas in space! So original! - InsertNameHere

CGI. No need to say more

People didn't talk about the story, they talked about the visuals. It's Akira all over again..

It's just an ordinary sci-fi movie

3 Frozen

Frozen is an okay movie, but people talk about it like Jesus Christ wrote it or something. The songs, characters, and plot are very bland compared to the other classic Disney films and it doesn't deserve all the hype.

When a movie made from Disney is worse than "Tangled" and "Tinker Bell", it's one of the worst movies ever.

One time, I was at the theater, and I saw the trailer for this movie. I thought it would be a good movie. I WAS WRONG! When it came out, it wasn't such a big deal. I thought it would just be one of those lackluster movies nobody cared about, but NO! Almost every little girl in the world was infected with Idina Menzel's song "Let it go." The songs COMPLETELY SUCKED, Elsa is an anti-hero who runs away from all possibilities and opportunities, Olaf is dumb thanks to his song "In Summer," which was dumb because HE IS A SNOWMAN! They will melt in summer. The villain was blander than steak without seasoning, and Anna is just annoying. There were only THREE things about this movie that was good. They were Kristof, Sven, and the animation. The WORST thing about this movie was the song, "Let it Go," which I think is worse than any ...more

By the way people were acting over it, I thought Frozen was going to be the best movie of the year... Maybe decade. But it turned out not to even be a classic. Disney has far better movies. Whoever says 'Frozen is better than the Lion King' is full of crap. It doesn't even make the top 30 of Disney's best movies. All my life, I've never seen a movie more overrated. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Instead, Frozen turns into literal hell after disney makes a 2nd film - sonictiger

4 La La Land

Extremely boring - Dvafan2

The plot of this film moves to slow to hold any attention. It gets to the point of ok guys just get to the sex already. It's like waiting for the sex scene that never comes. I'm assuming it was to boring to watch till the end. Thank goodness it didn't win the oscar.

La La land was good but the ending ruined it - Toptenanimallovers

I love musicals but was so disappointed by this movie, especially after all the hype it received

5 The Hunger Games

It was great but everyone was calling it the best movie ever and its not. - DrRyAn

Pretty good movie, but not a great one and definitely overrated. - bhopfan

Such shaky camera and the characters are dull, stiff, and simple. I mean Katniss is very boring and has no personality it drives me crazy. The plot is very ridiculous and has lots of holes, it is super predictable and it is just not very interesting, Plus all the good characters die such as rue, cinna, finnick, and prim! Peeta is such a burden, he is a sissy and he needed katniss to save his ass. This movie is so bland it's just a girl with a bow and arrow who survived poverty and all of a sudden become super special, then saves the day! Such a cliche dystopian novel. Very Pathetic. - missyweirdo

My general sentiment after seeing this movie was, "who cares? " I could not find one original thought or plot point in the entire film. What did this story about a dystopian society bring to the table that each and every other book or movie with a similar premise has not already covered? I found the characters mostly stiff and one-dimensional, so it wasn't even engrossing on a personal level. I was completely shocked to find out how well-repected this series is.

6 The 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

It's very good, but it's certainly not the masterpiece many people make it out to be. - bigLadIzaac

The Lion King is undoubtedly a great animation, but I do think it's overrated compared to some other Disney animations which are less revered than this one, but just as good.

First and foremost, this movie is heavily influenced by Bambi, yet Bambi is nowhere near as acclaimed as this movie. I just watched Bambi(1942) for the fist time last week, and I was amazed by how much influence that movie had on the Lion King, specially the ending, but I don't see people citing Bambi as the greatest Disney animation of all time, even though it's just as good as The Lion King.

Also, if we compare The Lion King to some other Disney animations like Snow White, Pinocchio and Aladdin, it could be argued that those movies are just as good, if not better than The Lion King.

Don't get me wrong, I love The Lion King, but I just think it gets way too much praise, while some other Disney movies are very underrated compared to this one. I mean, TLK has a 8.5/10 rating on IMDB, while ...more

This is a really good movie, but it isn't the best disney movie - Margarida

7 Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

To RogerMcBaloney, it is dumb to assume that if someone thinks Star Wars is overrated, he doesn't like science fiction. A person can say that Star Wars is overrated and be a fan of Star Trek, E.T., or Crash Bandicoot, which are all Sci-Fi stories. Star Wars is not that good, and many of its fans exaggerate its overall impact. It didn't jump start movie franchises. 007 did. For the many Star Wars fans to think that the series started the 'chosen one' kind of character, the dark looking villain with the villainous accent, old characters with great intelligence and wisdom, or a major plot twist, those fans unintentionally admitted that they never seen Dracula, the Captain Nemo films, nor seen nor read any story from Greek Mythology. Did Star Wars push the boundaries of special effects? Yes, but so did Forbidden Planet. The main reason Star Wars received so much attention is the same reason Independence Day and Armageddon did. A bunch of stuff blows up. Star Wars wasn't even the first ...more

It is sickening that this overrated pile of a series is treated like it's the best thing ever made when it isn't. I think the only franchise that had received even more stupid, ridiculous hype is that stupid, overrated video series, call of duty. It wouldn't surprise me if much of the fandom of star wars and call of duty are the same. Both dumb franchises have war, a bunch of explosions, overrated weapons, overrated soldier characters, and they both get brought up too much in circumstances that have nothing to do with either stupid series. Both franchises are like cancer, which should also go away, but can't. Now that wouldn't mean that the fandom of both franchises is completely the same, since many call of duty fans mainly adore call of duty because it's very violent. Dumb costumes, over-used catchphrases, an overrated theme song, and those reasons I mentioned earlier is why star wars is the most overrated movie series ever. At least the makers of star wars doesn't release an entry ...more

I don't see how you could compare Star Wars, a movie, and Call Of Duty, a video game. The only thing that I agree with you about is that Call Of Duty is overrated, at least most of the games in the franchise. Now, I get that you might not like Science-Fiction, but seriously you need to chill. I bet you never even saw any of the Star Wars movies. Bet you only hate on things because you think it makes you cool. None of the reasons you gave have any credibility whatsoever. - RogerMcBaloney

All the Star Wars movies are overrated! That doesn't mean that they are not good, but still

Made me want to go to sleep. at least it's shorter than "Empire Strikes Back".

8 Black Panther Black Panther

People were called racist for not liking this movie. If most people either hate a movie or think that it's overrated, the main characters being black won't be the reason. If someone wasn't going to like a movie because of the ethnicity of the main characters, then they wouldn't watch the movie at all. Also, wouldn't it be a different form of racism to praise a movie because the main characters are black? That would be overrating the film.

I honestly liked Spider-Man far from home better - sonictiger

As a Marvel fan it doesn't even deserve to
Be in the top 10 best Marvel Movies. And I'm black.

People went nuts when this movie dropped below 100% on Rotten Tomatoes BEFORE THE MOVIE WAS EVEN RELEASED. All because "muh black cast." That's literally the only reason this movie was so hyped. Nobody outside of black racists who don't even watch comic book movies actually thinks it's the best Marvel movie. It wasn't even the best of the year it was released.

9 Twilight

Twilight, taking every cliche and wrapping it up into one big movie SERIES. Top 3 should be the entire movie series, not just number 1.

How is it overrated if everyone hates it? It couldn't be rated any lower. I can't name a single person who likes it.

ruined the whole concept of vampires and werewolves. they turned lycans to dogs and vampires to chandeliers

All this movie had was female oriented smut, and the biggest cliche that all females want to happen, to have all their troubles taken away by a muscular man. It's ironic that girls get mad at boys for wanting a girl who is hot, when they just want a guy that muscular and handsome. These movies were the number 1 thing me and all boys across the world dreaded every year they came out, if they remake twilight and 5 more of these movies come out, I will blow my brains out

The WORST "vampire" movie EVER!

10 The Dark Knight

The irony of this film is that it received so much hype for things that it wasn't: Dark, gritty, unpredictable, intellectual, realistic, ground breaking, philosophical, a work of art. What were the fans of this movie on when they saw this movie? People that claim this is a dark superhero movie had clearly never seen The Crow, Sin City, the Blade films, nor The Punisher. Due to those films alone, this film was not ground breaking. The film was not unpredictable nor intellectual, which was why the Jokster survived throughout the movie, getting away with much more than he should have. The many stupid moments made this film too comical to be gritty. Plus, the Jokster's pseudo-philosophy made the film come off as more stupid. I can't believe Heath Ledger won an Oscar for that role. What's even worse was that Ledger put too much energy into a villain that would of been killed quickly without plot armor. This overrated movie played a role in a actor's death. This movie is a work of ...more

I'm not gonna lie... this is a good comic book movie in my opinion. It's just good. Heath Ledger's performance is amazing, but don't think it's Oscar worthy (I just respect the fact that he put so much effort), the action sequences are a tad better than "Batman begins" and in many respects, it's a relatively fun movie to watch. However, there are some really big issues (in my opinion) that I think a lot of people ignore because of the film's hype and only. For example, Bruce Wayne is not as interesting as he was in "Batman begins". I just didn't feel that much about him and I feel that this is due to the fact that the writers focused much more on Joker's character than they should've had. And the same goes for everyone else in the movie. From Lucious Fox, to Rachel Daws, to Harvey Dent etc., all the characters felt kinda bland to me. Also, Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance as Rachel Daws was just terrible. She was just kind of a role model than an actual character and could've given a ...more

I find The Dark Knight to be an... Okay film. However, it's all the praise it gets that made me hate it. The big problem I have with it is how seriously it takes itself. They have a story about a man who fights crime dressed up as a BAT, yet they make it as if they're producing Shakespeare. Burton's Batman was dark, like Batman should be, but Burton acknowledged the surrealness of the story, and he made it so it was fun, enjoyable, and dark, just like a Batman movie should be. That's why Burton's Batman remains one of my favorite movies of all time. Another big problem I have with the film, aside from Bale's performance, is Heath Ledger. He was a partially enjoyable character, but he was NOT the Joker. He was an everyday criminal. The Joker is supposed to be both fun, creepy, insane, and hilarious. Ledger only got the insane part down, the rest he completely defenestrated. If I wanted a good Joker, I'd watch Mark Hammil, or Jack Nicholson. And, if I wanted to enjoy Batman, I'd watch ...more

For many others, like me, who think Tim Burton's Batman had too much caricature, Nolan's toning down was a huge sigh of relief. - gaali121

Fair but never best, 8/10

The Contenders

11 The 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.

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.

What?!? This is a classic!

12 Forrest 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

I don't know which movie is the worst... Forrest Gump, Steel Magnolias or Field of Dreams... but I think I'll go with Forrest Gump which is full of sentimental drivel.

Rubbish movie.

This terrible movie is bot voted 24/7/365. Ditto Tom Hanks.

14 Gravity

Not only do I think this movie is overrated, but it's also one of my least favorite movies of all time. Almost nothing happened. There was no character development, innovation, emotion or humor. Its visuals were good but not enough to save it.

Watching Gravity is the equivalent of watching fireworks. It's cool, but ultimately I don't want to watch two hours worth of it.

I do not get the praise behind this film at all. The big issue with Gravity is that it felt like they spent most of the production into the CGI and special effects and that's it. While I do think George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are great actors, this is probably one of their worst performances I have seen from both actors. - SteamedSpaghet

Don't believe the comments of people who say that the critics who found this film overrated, boring and bad in acting all were wrong! They were right ( for once ). This movie is boring. Sandra Bullock is very bad ( she is screaming all the time and it sounds like she has an orgasm instead of fear ) and the special " action " effects are so predictable that it gives no " viewers effect " at all in matter of being surprised.

No plot, humor, or character development (or characters for that matter) and critics loved it because of the effects? I agree with critics on almost every movie but I am truly baffled at the praise this movie is receiving.

15 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Wow. Someone actually had the nerve to put this one here.

I liked IV better - sonictiger

Star Wars is the most overrated media franchise of all time (This includes Video Games, T.V. Shows, Animation and Films), and this coming from a long-time fan. Honestly, I think there's better Space-Based franchises and better sequels than Episode V. Not saying this is bad at all, in fact this is better than A New Hope, but I honestly don't think its as grand as so many people make it out to be.

Furthermore, the Star Wars franchise has staggered itself several times after the Original Trilogy. While I personally like the Prequels, I know they're flawed in many ways. The Sequel Trilogy is honestly mediocre. And in a very unpopular opinion, I prefer the tie-in materials, mostly from the Expanded Universe over any of the films. - CrimsonShark

WHAT?!?!? This movie is not even close to being overrated!

Star Wars in general is massively overrated.

That does not mean its bad. - CrimsonShark

Most of the girls in my class are absolutely obsessed with high school musical! I cannot stand it when they keep saying it's the best movie in the world! I found this movie to be completely annoying and all the songs are extremely annoying! Also I don't like musicals! - UltraLunalaX

The music is SO Chessy and unrealistic, it hurts my soul to this movie it needs to backspace itself from existence

This movie sucks. Seriously. The other nine movies up here don't deserve to be called overrated while this abomination continues to exist. Putting Silence of the Lambs and American Beauty on the same list as High School Musical is basically comparing Zach Efron and Ashley Tisdale's acting to that of Keivn Spacey and Anthony Hopkins. Whoever made this list should be ashamed. - aman28

20 The Matrix

Aww, come on now. What's so bad about Neo? You have a problem?! Why hate?

This movie is the most overrated in history, and I'm gonna tell you why. Blade did the bullet dodging, marble pillars with armed men behind them, trench coats and sunglasses one year before the matrix. The acting in the matrix sucks, the plot is idiotic, and it tries so hard to be smart but isn't. But, I will give it this, the special effects are decent. Not great, but they stand the test of time. The best part of the whole movie was when Keanu Reeves does Bruce Lee's signature nose flick. The reason I say Keanu Reeves is because it was unscripted. So, I've listed out the reasons I hate the Matrix. So you can't pass me off as unintelligent because I have my reasons.

Well the acting isn't that good since they have the same facial expression the whole time but imma give The Matrix 9/10 - AlphaQ

Why is this rated R?

If visual effects makes a movie great, then Mars Needs Mom is a great movie.

This film should be called Jurassic Garbage. Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is better than this overrated piece of Jurassic Garbage. Many of the fans of this movie must be on dope.

I just hate it, it's stupid story - PinkF

This movie is mostly overhyped because of the series that it's part of. There are dinosaur movies on the syfy channel that are marvelous compared to this junk of a movie. If this film wasn't part of the jurassic park series, nor had the word JURASSIC in its title, most of the fans of this stupid movie wouldn't care for it.

Depression: The Movie

Oh thank you, I am not alone in this. I thought this movie was terribly overrated. Wouldn't even say it was a good movie. - ParasN2000

It starts off like a bad student film, doesn't know what to do with the middle and just explodes at the end. Technically the last 25 minutes were extremely well done but we needed the previous hour to engage with the character and we just didn't have any of the character ark that we needed. As a result how are we supposed to care about these people. Maybe you did but I didn't.

Best thing about this film was Clint Mansell's score.

It is well made but it shoves the moral down the viewers throat

23 Brave

Such crap - sonictiger

I don't get the hell why would such a crap show could win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. It was so horrible, the story was a huge mess and the mother daughter relationship was nothing at sense. The characters don't even link to each other and the animation was horrible (seriously Pixar? ). Even the bear scene doesn't make any sense to that

The academy should go right up to Disney and take that Oscar back! This film sucked! Merida, who is supposed to be "brave," came out was whiny and annoying for me. She whines about being a princess, whines about getting married, whines about her mom choosing her fate(she's really not, she wants the best for you,) whines when she gets turned into a bear, etc. If you want a brave princess, go watch Mulan, who isn't whiny and selfish.

I don't even get why would anyone like that show or it win an Oscar. The story was a huge mess and the animation is damm awful (seriously Pixar after The Incredibles? ) even Rise Of The Guardians and Wreck it Ralph is heck better in animation quality

24 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It's not as good as the original ones.

In my opinion, this film was mediocre at best. The acting was subpar, the action scenes were okay, but what really broke the camel's back was the character development, or lack thereof. I couldn't really care about these characters, because we know nothing about these characters. I feel like people only liked the film because it's a Star Wars film. Personally, I think it's overrated. - MasonOcker

Not only was it not as good as most say, it was worse than any Star Wars movie not called Phantom Menace. The movie came out at a time when everyone was crying racism over every little thing. Hollywood felt it was their job to attack what they felt was racism all over this country. So what does Rogue One do? Make all the bad guys in the movie white men, and make all the good guys in the movie a complete hodgepodge of different ethnicity and gender... just as long as it was no white men.

Oh my God all of my friends say this is the best Star Wars movie. IT isn't - moviesman

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 ).

28 Tangled

Anyone who says Tangled is awful is a dumbass idiot from Satan!

This is one of the best animated films ever. The characters, the songs and dare I say, the story, are all great. I do not understand how anyone can find anything in this to dislike. Inside out is a terrible animated movie.

The characters are annoying at best and completely unlikable at worst. The entire plot is stupid - it has too many implausible actions and twists, the magic just happens to work in a forced, convenient way (this includes being a deus ex machina), and the whole plot could've been avoided if it weren't for the villain's contrived idiocy. The songs weren't great either, and saying that the good animation redeems the film is like saying that the nice graphics redeem Sonic 2006.

Not overrated at all my favorite Disney movie ever its great any one who thinks the plot is stupid does not understand. A great plot is was a fantastic set up also Frozen's plot was hard to understand. - JustinDanger

Its not Overrated

The people defending the movie says stupid although they never met then and it's just a movie and also it's a bunch of people who hate the movie so if someone says everyone says the movie sucks then you are stupid is very stupid although there could be someone who is stupid but everyone...WHY. It's like saying that the people who like porn are stupid although I like to say that's true but no it's like a professor who is very smart and wise but watches porn and also goes to people saying my little pony fans are annoying is also stupid if you say a all the fans of any kind of thing are stupid or even smart then you have to be embarrassed with your self.

30 Citizen Kane

I understand why someone thinks that Citizen Kane is overrated, and its because they thought that it was either boring or too praised. The reason why Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the great films ever made is because of its execution. I do agree on this statement, and there are films that I prefer more than this movie since it's my own personal taste that I have in movies. - BurnAux

This movie wasnt boring its not the best movie ever but it was intresting - Dvafan2

Its incredibly boring, with an unlikable main character. During last Summer, I watched as many classic movies as possible, and I was excited to get to this one. I hated it. I usually don't get bored with movies, like 12 Angry Men is one of my favorite movies, and it has little to no action, but Citizen Kane is downright boring. There was not one scene where I was excited, or interested, and I ended up turning it off with 30 minutes left.

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.

"The Fast and the Furious" movies are some of the most overrated films of all time. I really don't understand how these movies draw so much revenue when they're the same as any other generic, forgettable action movie. These movies don't have any plot, no character development, and don't give us any reason to care for the characters. I hope this franchise comes to an end soon. - rapaddict97

Sorry poor folks, I guess your humour has degraded far too much to enjoy the masterpiece that this movie is! The black knight, the rabbit monster... this movie had me in splits! Such genuine humour. - gaali121

This movie is hilarious

37 Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

Don't people have to think a movie was good in the first place in order for it to be classified as "overrated"?

I can say never whatever I want! As for the movie, all I can say is, "NEVER create this movie about a boy that has a voice of a woman and dance around like a female latino dancer again"! Plus, don't get started Katy Perry either!

For a movie to be classified as overrated, it must have critical and audience acclaim. While critics didn't really mind this movie, but it also has an average rating of 1.6 on IMDB, and nearly all of the votes are from people who haven't even seen the movie. That is why it isn't even included in IMDB's Bottom 100, despite the fact that it could easily take the number one spot.

This film is not overrated. Just amazingly terrible. - OnyxDash

Still don't understand why a lot of adults like this. This isn't a family movie, it's a kids movie. A terrible kids movie. - truckturner

If Everything is Awesome, does that make Hitler awesome? - TeamRocket747

The fanbase of this film is worse than the movie.

The thing with this movie is that it has a certain humor that only certain people will find funny. I honestly found it hilarious. There's nothing wrong with hating it, you just can't say the movie is bad.

I agree, I heard how funny this movie was and everyone I knew kept on quoting it so I decided I HAD to watch it, so when I finally did, I was so disappointed. the movie seemed really dull and not funny and I barely chuckled. - Cookz90

There's really no reason to like this movie. It's dull, bland, boring, and usually unfunny. I almost slept through this movie, something I don't do often in comedies! The characters are total idiots, the acting is terrible, the story is completely stupid, and the movie is filmed in the worst place possible. Any movie filmed in the country is boring in my experience! Anyway, don't watch this movie, because it truly is overrated.

BORING! I had to switch to Vince beating his nuts in a slap-chop, id rather watch it than watch this bs. And every one is like napoleon Dynamite is so amazing, its really not, even stupider than Mamma-mia - theTwister

40 Grease

Overrated? This is suposed to be a adapted filmversion of the theatre-musical from 1972. And I think they succeeded to do that very well. Songs were adapted for 1978 and the soundtrack had that same year many songs that went number one in the charts all over the world. The story? well, it's a love story about a " nice " new girl ( Olivia Newton John ) in highschool who fells in love with a gang-leader ( John Travolta ) with a heart of gold but who is acting tough in front of his gang trying not to lose his face and feelings before them. So, what is overrated? The songs? The story? It's a movie / musical made for fun and entertainment. You don't have to look any further than that. You like it or you don't like it ( there's always pro and cons for everything in this world for " art " ) but it's certainly not an overrated movie. This is a classic / cult movie now for a good reason. You will never be able to re-make ( if they should try to do so and I'm not talking about Grease 2 here ) ...more

Grease? Overrated? This has to some stupid joke.

This is not overrated. It's more overlooked, and if you don't like the film, I can totally understand you. I myself had mixed feelings about it the first time I saw it. Some weeks passed by, and I just couldn't get it out of my head, and eventually I saw it again, and now I love it. Once you understand what the film is going for and what it's trying to say about depression, loneliness, struggling to connect on a deep level with other people and so on, then I think you will hopefully gain some appreciation.

This film isn't overrated, if anything it's underrated.

I was creeped out by this movie. I probably missed some things. But I found it very disturbing and quite directionless. Not overrated though. But unexpectedly disturbing. Especially the oral sex scene. - JoLeKosovo

Even though barely anyone knows what this movie is. - JakePlaid

42 Divergent

The whole franchise sucks - Dvafan2

This movie is honestly so similar to the hunger games that you could watch this movie instead to save time. Overrated garbage

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

Terrible crap - ikerevievs

43 Arrival
44 The Secret Life of Pets

Toy story with pets, and most of the actual funny parts in the trailer. But of course people loved it because cute animals. It's no way horrible (decent animation/voice acting) but seriously Illumination Animation made this movie for the sole purpose of profit, not creativity. But it's not the most overrated of all time, I just thought it should be higher - Phillip873

Too many toys, played the trailer too much in the Theater, bad acting, illumination makes this movie like a god, rips off toy story 3 times, stupid minion Easter eggs, horrible fanbase, do I have to say more, this movie is trash!

This is a toy story ripoff coming from the studio who made minions and sing...And it's lower than SHREK - Himalayansalt

I think it's okay.

Yeah there is a gay character I just realized that - Crizz

Oh Disney, why did you make a movie for those Tumblr social justice brats?

While this movie isn't terrible per say it unfortunately tends hammer the message down your throat, as a result it comes off as very preachy and a bit annoying. What also doesn't help when it come's to how overrated it is, is that there's a gay couple (look it up it's sadly been confirmed) and we all know how much people love campaigning for gay rights and $&@!. And how people lose their minds if someone says something negative about gays. Even though gay marriage is disgusting and wrong and gays are sub human. (they aren't even real people) these are just one of few reasons why it's overrated hopefully overtime more and more people will see it's glaring flaws because while it's not a terrible movie it could have been better.

People like you are the problem in this world. Gay marriage is in no way wrong, only non-humans would think it is. - Solacress

46 Django Unchained

Tarantino's best and most mature film to date. - truckturner

This movie is incredible. This movie has everything you really want for just good old fashion entertainment. Because when you think about the plot, it's very simple but genius.

This movie isn't as good as everyone claims it to be

Like every Tarantino movie, a lack of originality. It's just a copy of the many Italian westerns made in the sixties.

47 Transformers

Please forgive me for putting this trilogy on the list. I usually don't bash anything, but let's face it: the Transformers series is not that great. Yes, it's the first time Transformers goes live action and I know it made a huge amount of money and it has your all-time favorite stars, but they're just robots for crying out loud! It's just a movie series that are made to sell toys. If you like the movie series, especially particularly, I respect your opinion. It's those stupid people and fantards who can't let the movies go, along with the haters. The critics who panned the films are not the problem at all. It only gets an academy award for best picture if it's worth it! In other words, just let it go.

Not really sure if the Transformers franchise can be considered overrated because anyone with even half a brain will realise immediately that these movies are poorly acted poorly written crap by the no-talent hack Michael Bay.

This movie made me realize that the Cartoons that I loved as a kid, really were not as good as I remember.

Loved this one. The other 3 were terrible.

48 Deadpool

Actually, deadpool was different from most other superhero movies, but it wasn't the first superhero movie to break the fourth wall so many times. The Mask did this many years before deadpool came out. It also wasn't the first violent superhero movie, since The Crow, Blade, and Underworld were released many years earlier. Also, saying that it seemed like everyone worshipped this movie would be giving it too much credit. That would be like saying that everyone worshipped twilight because of how famous twilight is. Like twilight, deadpool was just able to hugely appeal to its target audience. That doesn't make a film great nor good. Otherwise, high school musical is marvelous. Deadpool would rival twilight for having among the worst fanbases of any movie.

i disagree

An overrated movie filled with a bunch of stupid, juvenile jokes. Also, constantly breaking the fourth wall does not make something good. Dora the Explorer constantly breaks the fourth wall. Being famous does not make something good either, since there are plenty of people out there with very bad taste. The fame of lil wayne, nicki minaj, justin bieber, and the kardashians are proof of that.

Deadpool is overrated garbage.

Excellent movie. It does not take itself seriously. People fail to realize that. Has to be watched in a certain frame of mind. - gaali121

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 " (? ).

You singled out the plastic bag in the whole movie. And I'm supposed to say "Wow, what a great analysis " (? ). - gaali121

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.

That would be "Forrest Gump" you're talking about, man. Because "American Beauty" is a great piece of cinema. - gaali121

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

50 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

3 HOURS, 3 HOURS

After the amazing accomplishments of the LOTR movies, The entire The Hobbit series totally sucked.

Wow, what a stinker. It was an embarrassment to the book.
