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.

This got sooo much hype before it came out because of it's top-notch cast, but frankly it wasn't that good. The story was only okay, although the acting was pretty good. That has nothing to do with the movie though, it just had good actors...

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

44 The Amazing Spider-Man The 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

45 Forrest Gump 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'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!

I don't like this film. Tom Hanks, great actor, not at his best. Robert Zemeckis, good director, I like Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. But this movie beat Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Clerks, and The Lion King undeservedly. - BeatlesFan1964

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

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 " (? ).

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.

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

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

This should have made the main list. What a waste of time.

It's A Movie? I Thought Is A Porno That Had A Song Sang By A Half Human Half Tree
And Another one Sang By A Barbie Doll That Can Talk

Its was one of the most popular movies when it was released,so I think its overrated,cause it shouldn't have got that much of attention - zxm

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.

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

55 Sunset Boulevard Sunset Boulevard

I had heard a long time how great this movie is but it is so boring. Norma Desmund is a totally overrated character. I barely was able to stay up watching it.

This is a great movie.billy wilder is the best I think its underrated I had never heard of it when I saw it

56 Fight Club Fight Club

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

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

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

It's a great mind twisting movie,but movies like shutter island,memento,the prestige should get same rating as this movie cause they are more mind twisting than this movie,I think they are better than this movie - zxm

57 The Dark Knight Rises The 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

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

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.

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

58 Despicable Me Despicable 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

59 Man of Steel Man of Steel

Overrated without a doubt. I'm a big fan of Amy Adams but she is the worst Lois Lane in history ( not her performance ). She should at least have changed her hairstyle and changed her color of her hair. The movie itself was too slow at some moments or too long and intense at moments ( the combination of action and drama were poorly made up ).

Man Of Steel is UNDER-RATED! If anything every other Superman is over-rated --- even I and II! I've always felt that if Superman were real, people would fear him. come on, the fact that he is an alien alone would be a very, very big deal in real life. How would prize-winning journalist Lois Lane NOT know Superman is Clark Kent minus glasses in real life? The villain, Xod, was realistic too. He simply had a job to do. No real villains ever view themselves as villains. People were simply upset that it was so different than any other Superman story and the fact he kills Xod. And they just don't get it! SOMEONE FINALLY GOT THIS STORY SPOT-ON RIGHT! the best Superman Movie ever and the most realistic by far! Man Of Steel has "Made Before It's Time" written all over it. It will age well and become a mainstay on under-rated lists by 2030. Mark my words!

I'm not sure how this one's overrated. It's got a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's really more underrated and true to Superman law.

This movie was bad, but most people don't like it so it isn't overrated.
