122 Into the Woods

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

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

123 Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl
124 Romeo and Juliet (1968)
125 Argo
126 Spider-Man 3

This is underrated, not overrated.

How is this overratedit was panned by critics and audiences alike

127 Rise of the Guardians
128 Inland Empire
129 Shakespeare In Love
130 The King's Speech

Sure, it's a good movie, but no way deserving of its Academy Award.

Good movie. Should it have won the Oscar? No. - BeatlesFan1964

This movie took oscar over inception so,I think its little bit of overrated,though its good but inception was better - zxm

131 Spy Kids
132 3 Backyards
133 Toy Story 2
134 Independence Day
135 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

What an unfairly underrated film. Actually, The Avengers (and I mean the whole saga owned by Disney) is unfairly underrated as a whole!

136 Top Gun

I have never seen a movie pose such an awful hero we are supposed to like, and in such a stupid script.

137 Mad Max: Fury Road

I would write a more developed comment, but as this film has barely any plot, any description seems impossible

Has no plot, one of the worst films ever made

5th worst film ever

As much as I do like this movie, I do have to agree it's just an simple action and chase flik

138 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!
