141 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

142 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!

143 Independence Day
144 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!

145 Top Gun

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

146 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

Not bad at all. Not as good as the Original Mad Max but to concider this as " overrated " is an exagerated statement.

147 Boyhood

We all though this is an overrated movie but when this movie was slammed by Birdman then we all knew there is an MORE overrated movie than this one - zxm

Incredibly overrated. I personally disliked this movie.

148 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

In my opinion, this film was mediocre at best. The acting was subpar, the action scenes were okay, but what really broke the camel's back was the character development, or lack thereof. I couldn't really care about these characters, because we know nothing about these characters. I feel like people only liked the film because it's a Star Wars film. Personally, I think it's overrated. - MasonOcker

This Movie Was So Boring

SO OVERRATED - VideoGamefan5

GET HIGHER PLEASE!

150 Schindler's List

Not anywhere as good as 'Escape from Sobibor' for a holocaust movie. EFS is sad one moment and very encouraging and entertaining the next moment, like when an elderly Jew is very excited saying 'we are killing the Nazis'. And the scene where the pistol fails to shoot a man but releases a bullet when pointed to the ground, selecting someone to die with, etc.

Just another " morality " movie to show us the eternally " we suffered so much " Jewish attitude. I think they have to stop their self- pitty seeking attention. Don't get me wrong, I think that Jewish people did suffered in the history of mankind but I think that it is now exagerated to seeking all this attention for something that is over. They are doing very well now in the world. Besides, in my oppinion, black people did suffered even more because they were taking away from their homeland for slavery, their names were changed and after generations all this men and women don't even know their origins.
Their souls were litteraly taken away from them. So, I think that movies like this one are beginning to get boring for the all-public and just because some elite people will Always trying to sell us pitty and saying that the movie is good ( it's so Obvious )makes movies like that genre very overrated. And after all " Schindler's list " was not a great movie. It did get just many ...more

Does anyone remember anything about it?

It was good but overrated as a movie got too much on IMDB - zxm

151 Borat

Typical Jewish humor ( they think that they can make fun of everyone but when you make fun of Jewish people they're suddenly offended ). Like all Sacha Baron Cohen movies, stupid racist jokes.

This movie just blows, everyone thought it was so funny, but it sucked the big one, would be on my list of top ten worst movies of all time behind Dracula 3000

It's a little bit of overrated to come on one of the most scariest movies of all time - zxm

155 The Sixth Sense

Looking back, 6th Sense has become an unintentional comedy

It's a great movie but it has a common misconception. Most think it's a horror movie, but it is not officialy - Username123

156 Dirty Dancing

Too overrated, bad acting, boring story. It's supposed to be a story of the early sixties and nothing matches with that era. Oldies combined with new music (? ), clothes that looks like 80's outfits, haircuts no one had in the 60's. I hate when they make movies of a certain era and where details like clothes, music and so on aren't well done. Just for that movies like this one doesn't deserve the attention of being appreciated or get the cult-status like it has now. A bad movie wich many people do like and for that reason way too overrated.
