This should have stayed a book. But instead we got big name actors singing like animals getting skinned alive - ArpstaAmy333

Just one word "Awful"

I just hate Musicals in movies. I don't know why. I...just hate it.

44 Dr. Seuss' The Lorax

Taylor swift was in this she better stick to singing.

Started the Let it Grow memes, but otherwise bad.

The memes aren't funny, same goes for shrek

LET IT GROOOW - JamesBourne

45 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

46 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

sucks - nickisawesome

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.

Yeah, I watched it in 3D. And it was the most boring movie I ever watched in the theaters. There was no plot and critics just sucked up to the wasted talent of two admittedly great actors (more Clooney than Bullock, though, and he was only in for less than half the movie).

A perfect example of deus ex machina

48 Gladiator

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

It's a great movie,like I said overrting means that things get more rating that that deserve and this movie deserves the rating - zxm

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.

It's alright, but still...
by the way, I don't see Frozen as a whole overrated. It's decent as a movie. It's mostly Let it Go that's overrated.

52 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

53 The Avengers

Not let's be clear, overrated doesn't mean that something is bad yet everyone seems to enjoy it. It simply means that something is given more credit than it deserves. And let's face it, The Avengers is completely over-rated. We have been waiting for this for awhile, yet it gives off too much of an "America $%&# Yeah" sort of feel to it.

Lets be honest the movies on here are here simply because we hate it but are probably not THAT bad movies, well they are pretty bad but the ratio of hype to actual value isn't that different, this had so much hype, and ratio wise its pretty overrated because I think it doesn't have much actually good artistic value in it, just explosions, special effects taken form every other marvel movie already made and put together, at least they are good actors

This movie isn't bad but it's definitely not as good as people say. The story is literally bad guy (but a cool one) does something bad, the avengers assemble and catch the bad guy who obviously has a plan, then they fight against each other and bad guy escapes, attacks the city and they beat him. That's it. Maybe it does have some cool effects and actors are pretty good. But, really, what's so special about it. The plot is weak and there is no character development. I watched it multiple times and still can't see what's so good about it.

Great cast, highly enjoyable, but not that great of a movie! I am so sick and tired of people calling it the best! I loved Guardians, The Winter Soldier, Logan, X2: X-men United, and Spiderman 2 better because they defied their genre. The Avengers is good, I liked it and hated it's sequel Age of Ultron. But that story is for another day!

54 American Hustle

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

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.

Nothing against Jennifer Lawerence, but she ruined the movie for me.

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

No matter how much dislikes I got on this comment but I have said it before and saying this again this movie is a plain boring movie with so much overrated,and deadpool isn't even like that the movie represented - zxm

The most boring and overrated movie of this year.plain actions,hero saves heroine at the end,like 4 or 5 other movies and got 8.5 on IMDB - zxm

56 Goodfellas
57 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

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

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

58 How to Train Your Dragon 2
59 Sin City

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

Really really boring movie, too much narrating

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

Just to see Carla Cugino naked and the amazing ass of ever Mendez is entertaining enough for me to watch this not best movie of all time but also not the worst movie ever.

60 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

This is actually underrated

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

Yawn
