81 Gravity Gravity

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).

Its not overrated IMDB but on rotten tomatoes and metacritics - zxm

82 The Silence of the Lambs The Silence of the Lambs

It's not overrated. If it is, too bad. It's one of the best movies ever. You make a four star movie, and then tell me about it, and I'll watch. I'll tell the world yours is overrated if I wanted to.

Silence of the Lambs does not age well. Besides the obvious (Hopkins' exceptional acting), the film has many holes; even for it's time-period. Hopkins is a strong actor, in a very mediocre film. The last scene pretty much would never ever happen. It's a film w/ an embarrassing lack of realism.

Good story, good acting good everything. This movie received to many major oscar rewards then it deserved. - preachinpreach

Its not a very overrated movie,it isn't even on top 10 movies of all time lists - zxm

83 Crash

Such an humiliating movie from a really good cast. The writing is a complete joke and the emotional scenes are so forced and so contrived it has me on the floor laughin my ass off. Anyone who thinks this movie I better than Brokeback Mountain is a dips--t.

Brokeback fan...feeling the need to make a derogatory remark about another just because of their taste in film says more about the person writing the comment than the actual film!
Crash, by the way, is a great film - not the greatest film ever but nevertheless, still great.

84 Toy Story Toy Story

How is toy story on this list? It is the best Disney Pixar movie ever made. Whoever who are you are a load of crap, and also, you think titanic is overrated, yeah right (sarcasm)

Finally someone who agrees with me!

85 Pulp Fiction Pulp Fiction

Just look at the movies " Kiss me deadly " from Robert Aldrich and " The killing " from Stanley Kubrick and you will see that there is no originality in " Pulp fiction ". Tarantino just copied the story and style from this movies! After the succes of Pulp fiction critics were saying that this was groundbreaking in history of movie and many people believed that ( mostly kids or people without any knowledge ) but in fact this was all wrong. A movie that is ok and entertaining but way too overrated for it's originality!

Even the scene with the dance contest at the diner with the seats made of cars is copied! Comes from an Elvis Presley movie " Speedway " ( a diner with seats made out of cars where's a contest ).

Tim Burton is far more over-rated than Quentin Tarantino. What really pisses me off is we're at 58 and still no Burton movies. Without Nicholson and Keaton's amazing acting, 1989's Batman is garbage. Watch it again now that you're all grown up and see for yourself.

This is my favorite film. - BeatlesFan1964

86 The Lego Movie The Lego Movie

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.

This movie is vastly overrated. It's nothing but a 100-minute Lego commercial.

It may not be a "great" movie, but compared to a lot of the animated crap their making I rally liked it and had fun watching it. - LostInAParadox

There's a reason why everyone loves this movie!

87 Zootopia Zootopia

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.

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

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

91 Transformers 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.

92 Free Willy Free Willy

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

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

93 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens

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

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

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

94 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The series is already overrated

95 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

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

Time has not been kind to this film, just look at the sets!

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

96 Mean Girls Mean Girls

So many people rate this as razor sharp satire, underpinned by a genuinely commendable moral message. However, I have never seen a film so middle of the road before. The humour never goes beyond the obvious, and every 'witty' comment made can be seen a mile off. And as for the moral message that everyone champions - well yes, I suppose it is commendable, but the delivery is without passion and has been done before with more heart and originality. Not a terrible film, but undeserved of its high praise.

I don't think that this movie belongs in the most overrated movies list. Many films of the genre ( highschool / girl problems ) aren't that good and this one was really standing out. Besides that, all the characters were very well played ( especially Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert ). If it's overrated ( and I think it deserves to be overrated ) it's because the movie is very good.

I don't object to dumb comedy but this is a dumb comedy masquerading as something more than it really is. It's pretending to be insightful social commentary and it just is nothing of the sort. Having lived in Africa for 15 years I don't understand why Cady Heron has an American accent.

Just because many people like it or talk about it ( in a good way ) doesn't mean that this movie is overrated. If a film is good it's normal that the movie has a lot of fans for it. Overrated isn't based on like or dislike ratings. Overrated means that a film is concidered as good when in fact almost no one like the movie. " Mean Girls " is not an overrated movie because it is really good and very well performed by the actors and actresses. Saying that this is dumb ( like one comment says ) because he can't understand why Cady has an American accent after living in Africa for 15 years is " the " dumb comment. Her parents who are Americans moved to Africa where she was homeschooled by American teachers there. Speaking ( with her family and teacher[s] ) and learning in your native language doesn't change your accent just because you're living outside the USA! Plus, it's suposed to be a comedy, not an intelectual insightful sociologic movie. Not overrated!

97 The Shining The Shining

I actually like the changes that Kubrick made. It's nothing like the book and that's ok. Adding the maze was a great metaphor and nice visual touch not to mention the added potential for tension. The problem is in the word potential. It's a horror movie! Build some tension and add some scares for gods sake! This movie is almost two and a half hours long. And for the most part nothing happens. When something does happen it's over before it can get scary. Seriously, the most frightening thing that happens to Jack is that he kisses a naked old woman.

It's not because this movie is boring or anything, it's just that almost everyone calls this "thing" a classic or a masterpiece. I mean, COME ON. The film completely destroys everything that was wonderful about the book. The acting is terrible. The wife and the kid is annoying, Jack Nicholson is terrific of course, but turning from a psychopath to an homicidal psychopath isn't what I call character develepmont. The rest of the movie is filled with shots of the hotel, creepy occurences that are neither discussed nor mentioned afterwards, a bad and confusing script and finally it ends with a close-up shot of a photograph that eventually leads to these secret messages or meanings that are supossedly hidden throughout this whole movie. Also even back then it wasn't well received (It was nominated for 2 Razzies)

This movie was great and the acting of Jack Nicholson in this movie was mind blowing,I admit that it isn't a very scary movie but it's a quite good movie to watch and people don't much about this movie about other movies - zxm

Not overrated at all. This was a game changer for the horror genre.

The stage musical is great, the movie is okay - Username123

Went on too long, and the plot shift in the second half was awkward.

99 The Fast and the Furious The Fast and the Furious

Maybe ok for kids but all those so Obvious CGI effects made this film unreal. Can't believe that they made so many follow-ups for such an overrated movie.
