It's to find people who agree with me on this but I can't stand this series! What is fun about three teenagers casting spells? Seriously, Emma Rupert and Daniel need to know that eventually they need to let go of their "I was a wizard in a movie" thoughts! Dumb franchise! Ba acting.

146 Star Wars Episode I

This movie is underrated if anything, people just hate it because it's not as good as the original trilogy. But really, is that even possible?

Go to any Star Wars discussion and see how many people sight phantom menace as the best in the series because very few if any will say that I don't think it's the best but a lot of Star Wars fans hate it so it shouldn't be on the list - Gamer4life

I don't think this movie is underrated or overrated. It's just bad. My least favorite Star Wars movie, definitely.

Let change the word rated to hated - Thirdwind

147 Space Odyssey

Never understood why this movie is so downgraded by most of the people. This is a great movie and I don't think that the script is boring. Wasn't overrated at the time it came out and is still not overrated. This movie just doesn't belong here. It feels not right on this list.

I will never get this film. I think Kubrick lost his mind on this one. Critics say it's in there top 10 well it's in mine bottom 10.

When this came out it was new light for movie people. Now looking back....overrated - preachinpreach

148 Chocolate
149 Inherit the Wind

Great classic! Based on a true story too!

150 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I understand this movie was the first full-length animated movie, but seriously? The majority of this movie is filler-deer and bluebirds running around and singing are okay, but not for 90 minutes! Plus, Snow White's voice sounds like a chipmunk harmonizing with nails on chalkboard. And she's ugly! Seriously, if she were the fairest in the land, she and the Wicked Witch would have to be the only two women in the entire kingdom! (Actually, that would explain a lot... )

This movie is just plain stupid. The characters are boring and Snow white was not beautiful...

151 Vertigo

Like almost every Alfred Hitchcock movie too overrated. All his movies had bad special effects and bad camera techniques and the lightning effects in all his movies were made like they were the work of some amateurs. The only thing is that a few movies had a really good script ( not many! ) and that's the only reason why he is so estimated with some movie fans. And as for " Vertigo ", this is one of his boring films that are too overrated. He is just one of the most directors of all time and besides " Vertigo " there are many other movies he made that are equally too overrated.

One of the greatest movies ever made. - BeatlesFan1964

Why this film is so popular, I have no idea. There was one good scene, and it was the scene that we've all seen or heard of before, the rest is just about him following her, and not going anywhere, and the stupidest ending ever that made no sense. What, may I ask, is good about that?!?! Hitchcock did this sort of thing with all of his films; he's just a useless hobo who can't direct. - PositronWildhawk

I love hitchcock, psycho, rear window, rope, dial m for murder are perfect movies, but vertigo is so boring, man I can believe this movie is so lovely, I hate this movie, boring to the beggining to end

152 Wall-E

The first half of the movie on earth with just Wall-E and Eve was actually pretty decent, but the omens when they go into space where all the humans who left the earth are on, it went straight down the crapper

If I could wipe everyone's minds and destroy all evidence that this film ever existed I would.

If you want a good silent movie, watch Chaplin of Keaton.

Hated this movie.
"BUT IT'S PIXAR! "
I don't care. I was bored the whole time.

153 Good Will Hunting

Launched the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, but I still don't know how.

154 The Little Mermaid

This only being 110 on this list makes me wonder if people understand what the word overrated means. Frozen at number five but this being so low? Frozen gets a ton of hate and barely has half of the fan base and praise The Little Mermaid does. TLM is incredibly loved (Mainly for nostalgia from most people) but I find this movie extremely unwatchable and doesn't hold up to the praise it gets whatsoever. The movie is boring and lagging with annoying side characters, a horrible moral, plain animation, mixed messages the whole way through, terrible humor, Hand don't even get me started on the awful main characters Ariel and Eric, two of the worst characters Disney has made. The only thing that I thought was okay was the songs, but even then the songs are horribly overrated and doesn't hold up to the praise they get. Honestly this whole list is pretty bad and it seems people don't understand what overrated means. The Little Mermaid should at least be in the top ten. - EllaInTheRankings

Despite the great musical numbers and fantastic villainess Ursula, the movie falls short with its heroine Ariel. She whines and complains throughout the whole movie: "I want legs! I want a prince! But is it worth my voice?!? FML! " Curse you, Hans Christian Andersen...

The anti-feminist portrayal towards Princess Ariel shows exactly why The Little Mermaid is overrated. I have always preferred Big Hero 6.

155 Close Encounters of the Third Kind
156 Mystic River

Interesting story, great acting. Who put this on here and what didn't you like?

Who put this here,this movie is UNDERRATED - zxm

157 The Boondock Saints

7.2 would be good, 7.9 is kinda overrating. but out of IMDB this movie is not overrated. - zxm

158 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Why the heck I this on here? This is my favorite childhood movie ever. It gives me nostalgia, and it's extremely creative. Plus, nobody talks about it EVER.

My sister is a Harry potter fan! So, a long time a ago she started the book and wanted to see the movie. We both ended up not liking it! First off, it's the worst acting I've ever seen! I know there young and all, but that's no excuse to me! The special effects are cheesy, annoying soundtrack, and just plain awful!

This is underrated because it's the only film in the trilogy that is truly close to the book.

This movie sucks. I definitely wish that they would kill this already. - davidis4god

159 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.

160 Tinker Bell

Response : I wrote " not really overrated ". Meaning that this movie is not that bad but also not exeptional and therefor rated for what it is. Fun and entertaining for little kids ( and they don't rate a movie. They like to watch it or they are bored and Tinker Bell is known to be liked by kids exept for a few percentage maybe. ). So, critics and ratings has to come from adults. The problem is, can you really as an adult saying that this is overrated or underrated? You can say it's overrated but what if almost every kid is saying that they like it? Are you right or are they right? What I mean is that you only can really rate this kind of movies based on the reaction and succes from the category of age this film was made for. If adult critics are saying that this is overrated ( but knowing that kids like this movie ) are you really gonna forbid or not let them watch this movie to them? Sure, you can rate this movie as an adult for its techniques, script etc...but do you really think ...more

What does "Nobody except critic from people of that category of age" mean? Sure, it's the strongest installment of the Disney Fairies franchise, but why the heck are you saying that something's not overrated if it's made for little kids? You didn't say whether it's perfectly rated or underrated, so... I'm quite perplexed. - The Ultimate Daredevil, not a fan of Disney Fairies

Not really overrated. Those kind of movies are made for very little kids ( from 10 months till 5 years old ). Nobody expect critic from people of that category of age. For them it's very funny and outstanding entertaiment. Even I as an adult don't think that this is bad movie.

So bad This Should be 7
