Most Overrated Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 Avatar

Pocahontas in space! So original! - InsertNameHere

I get why this movie is high on this list, but this movie is not nearly as overrated today as it was when it first came out. Unlike many overrated movies that should be higher on this list than Avatar(The Dark Knight, Joker, Forrest Gump, Django Unchained, any Avengers film, any Star Wars film), Avatar's hype was not because of any overrated characters. Does anyone think that Jake Sully, Neytiri, or Grace are among the greatest characters ever? The CGI was the only reason Avatar got so overrated. The CGI could of made any film huge, regardless of how bad the plot is. Howard the Duck and Battlefield Earth would of been very huge if they had Avatar level CGI before Avatar. Avatar was the most overrated film 10 years ago, but the hype that surrounded Avatar had already died down. It's probably because nowadays, even terrible movies can have major CGI.

I am not saying that Avatar was a bad movie. I just do not understand how a live-action version of Ferngully (let's be honest, that is what it is) can garner such acclaim and become the biggest most-successful film of all time. It was entertaining. That is as far as I would go. I find the overabundence of CGI a little distracting and the storyline common. Why was this nominated for so many awards while truly brilliant and challenging and original films were overlooked?

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

2 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.

Start with Kate Winslet's faux California accent in a character who should have sounded barely different from a London socialite. Next, accept for a moment that a cosseted aristocrat of 1912 was a secret sex fiend (entirely plausible). Would she not have heretofore been tuned into the gossip of all the horrors that befell easy girls? I'm not saying she wouldn't have jumped a low-born drifter, but not without wildly mixed feelings before, during and especially after.

Now the laws of physics and physiology. The water outside is cold enough to put rime ice on Jack's failing body. But inside the ship, apparently it warms to the temperature of a cool swimming pool. Prolonged dunking only brings hypothermia under an open sky.

Nothing about this movie is original. The story of poor boy-rich girl has been done hundreds of times before, the dialogue is so sappy and cheesy, and the movie is way too long. By the time the ship sinks, I'm rooting for these characters to die. Kinda weird how a movie can win a million Oscars including Best Picture, but not even be NOMINATED for SCREENPLAY? there is a good reason why it wasn't nominated for Screenplay, because the screenplay was horrible! The only good thing about this movie was the costumes and set design, it deserved to win for that, nothing else though. The score is bland, the story is bland, the acting is bland, it's just bland. Not deserving of any praise, whatsoever. Yet, Pearl Harbor was panned for these same reasons, yet Titanic gets showered with awards despite being on the same level of blandness.

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.

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

Its an ok movie, but come on people this is not the best disney movie, it doesn't even fall into the top 10. - thenextsteplover

4 La La Land

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.

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

On my first viewing I thought it was amazing. On my second viewing...was kinda boring. The flashy spectacle and melodramatic relationship between Mia and Sebastian only were made for a one time view I guess. A wanna be "Singing in the rain" (But kinda nice try thou) The visuals, music and cast are splendid. As for the pacing and memorable elements. Not really, by moments it seemed like the film was of "art cinema" genre cause it lost me a couple times during the 1st half. They just rushed into the dancing bits and music-romantic moments the whole first half and they neglected the element of relatability and connection (this by not having a great script that matches the visuals and music). In short the movie was ok. But is, all in, a lot of noise and little substance. The ending was really good thou. But still, the development into getting there felt (and was) really slobby. Overrated indeed.

The music and performances by the two leads are what make this movie good, the plot is just ehh.

5 The Hunger Games

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

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.

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

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

Copied from Kimba the white Tiger(1969 anime) without copyright. Every damn character and scene is copied. Disney sucks.

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

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

*The "I am your father" scene was in Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, not this one. Carry on. - MasonOcker

8 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.

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.

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

There are many great superhero movies that deserve an Oscar way more than black panther. Not to be racist, but to me it was just another good marvel origin story. It's definitely a good movie, perhaps I could even consider it a great movie but in comparison to other MCU flicks like Captain America: The Winter Soldier or infinity war and endgame or even Far From Home(amazing spider-man indeed), this movie falls short.

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

I curse the day this abomination made it into theaters. This "movie" SUCKS! Never see it.

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

Ok, I love this film. But there are better comic book movies than this. - sonictiger

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

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 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.

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!

13 How to Train Your Dragon

This is not overrated all you have to see one illumination movie and see this after and realise which one is better - Dvafan2

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

THIS IS NOT OVERRATED YOU MONGRELS

IF THIS IS OVERRATED THEN YOU HAVE NOT SEEN FROZEN

I REST MY CASE! YOU MONGRELS

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

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.

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.

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

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 Get Out

Pretty good, but not the best horror movie - Charmedyeti

Man this movie is overrated as fk, yeah the movie has a social commentary but that's all, as a horror movie is just boring

Haven't seen it - Dvafan2

You knew the ‘’ surprising plot twist’’ after 5 minutes. We’ve seen that story many times before.

16 Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

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

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

Even though (for that time) the special and practical effects were magnificient this movie isn't about special effects or soldiers shooting straight. The scene between Vader and Luke is enough to shoot this movie up to greatness, if you know the story. That really was something special. - gaali121

17 The Blair Witch Project

Nothing happens u a girl crying, and then u see bump her head at the end and u see some sticks shapes as people. 2nd ones better

Its one of the few movies that I stopped watching it

How did this crap become a classic? - RalphBob

SO STUPID! Found footage type of movies are the most annoying things ever! They try to make it realistic when actually it is just the most stressful and hardest thing to watch. This movie is the worst - missyweirdo

18 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

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

Perfect example of how a sequel is so bad, it made everyone realize that the original wasn't as good as they thought at first. Without Matrix 2 and 3, Matrix 1 would have a Nostalgia factor like TRON does. Speaking of which, how is TRON not even here at all? Does anybody remember anything about it other than it looked cool?

19 Gladiator

The lighting in this movie is unbearable and it makes everything look fake. Did they render Rome in microsoft paint? Generally the movie just feels incomplete and lackluster.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Russell shouldn't play victims. He is better off playing villains and leaders. Give me Master and Commander any day.

Really overrated, seen better movies about Romans, and less predictable ones too

What is this doing here?

20 High School Musical

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

No one says high school musical is a great movie, people are always insulting it and claiming how it should never of been made. The same with twilight. I swear you don't know what overrated means. Its something that everyone rates high but really is terrible. Napoleon Dynamite is a good example. Twilight and high school musical are not.

"No one" LOTS of people say it's great. Just like Frozen. Kids and young teens all over love it. I like it, or used to. - iiKyodaiKickz

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

This needs to be #1.
I can't believe you people think "Titanic" is overrated... - Celestius

Titanic sucks. It was boring as hell, had too much talking, no funny moments, and was just something for women to see with their boyfriends. END. OF. STORY. - greatesttop10s

21 Jurassic World

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.

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.

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

What? I'm confused... What is going on... what. It's not near bad. Not amazing though

22 Requiem for a Dream

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

It was made for it's time.

23 Brave

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

Since this movie came out I have been complaining about its lack of luster. First of all, the title is completely misleading. What exactly makes Merida "brave"? I must have missed it when I was forced to watch her be a complete selfish brat for the entire movie.

24 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It is not overrated, most people hate this movie. How can it be overrated if hardly anyone likes it

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

25 Inception

I was so unimpressed that today I only remember it being ridiculous in its premise and boring and predictable in its screenplay.

A terrific movie in every sense of he word

A bit overrated but still a lot of fun.

To be honest, I thought Toy Story 3 was the Best Film of 2010. And I was honestly happy when The King's Speech won Best Picture. - OnyxDash

26 American Sniper

Boring movie that glorifies America's foreign policies and military interventionism.

What exactly is being glamourised here? A pointless, arrogant attempt at justifying the actions of a man who did things he shouldn't have and bragged about it. Stupid movie.

Why did this film get nominated for Best Picture again? - OnyxDash

27 The 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 because Andrew Garfield

Jesse Eisenberg shouldn't even be called an "actor". If he is one, then my pet dog is clearly superior to him. - gaali121

A movie about facebook. Seriously? - Himalayansalt

28 The 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.

Don't find it as good as others do but yea it's A BIT overrated since people treat it like God created it. - AlphaQ

29 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.

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.

I never understood the hype. It really wasn't that great. It wasn't different from any other superhero movie. When it came out, it seemed like everyone WORSHIPPED this movie! I guess I'm not a fan of overrated hype...

Thank goodness I am not alone! I thought I was the only one who thought this film was kind of offbeat! I don't care about any dislikes. I have my own opinions! - BoltMarksman

30 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.

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

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.

31 Suicide Squad

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.

I don't know how this can be considered overrated considered it's been butchered by audiences and critics alike

I don't get why there used to be such a Suicide Squad hype, I found it simply boring and really nothing special at all - Organ

How is this overrated if it got negative reviews, I say it's underrated

32 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

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.

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

33 The Fast and the Furious

How did this film manage to get a sequel let alone 7 more movies and a spinoff movie.
This is the Star Wars of Universal.

"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

So overrated. Period. Throw anything with cars and boys will love it to death.

They are all the same boring overrated films I watched a few and they are the same - Dvafan2

34 Fantasia

Feels like a Disney animated movie made for 80 year-old snobs. Boring beyond belief. - truckturner

Which version original or 2000 or the crappy version at magic kingdom - Dvafan2

Whoever hates this movie must love hell

Not overrated. A musical, and visual masterpiece - Charmedyeti

35 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Harry Potter sucks and needs to die, absolultely terrible franchise

The series is already overrated

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

36 Paranormal 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.

It wasn't scary AT ALL

Overrated all off them

37 Monty Python and The Holy Grail

I have a serious grievance with this masterpiece being anywhere on this list... - truckturner

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

It was probably ok for its time but now it just seems like a mix of boring skits. If you are younger than 50 don't watch it.

38 The Lego Movie

Of course this is overrated its like the incredibles you can't say anything bad about their movie but this movie is boring bland and terrible - Dvafan2

Everything is awesome huh? Well not this crap lame piece of poop! - bigoof

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

I just want to throw Legos at everyone who insists this is the greatest animated movie ever, complains about how it didn't get nominated for an Oscar, or sings that stupid song at me.

39 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 is the worst movie ever. Juntin's voice is annoying, the songs are annoying every thing is annoying. I hope theirs not more Justin Bieber movies. Justin Bieber should die now!

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.

41 Anomalisa

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.

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

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

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

42 Arrival
43 Divergent

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

The whole franchise sucks - Dvafan2

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

Terrible crap - ikerevievs

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.

45 Zootopia

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

The time it took for this movie to become overrated was quicker than Frozen

Pretty much all of the fanbase for this movie now just consists of all the Frozen haters

46 Django Unchained

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.

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

47 Napoleon Dynamite

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

48 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.

49 American Beauty

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

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

50 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

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.
