Top 10 Most Overhated Movies of the 2000s

Movies that got a lot of hate from the 2000s decade that honestly aren't that terrible. This is subjective so if you think I missed one feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 Spider-Man 3

It's not as great as the first two movies but it's honestly not horrible either. Sure Venom and Gwen Stacy are terrible in this movie but the action, music and Sandman are quite enjoyable. This is the only film in the franchise where Mary Jane actually gets character development compared to the first two and it's wasted potential but there's certainly far worse movies. - SomePersonYouHate

This is actually one of my favourite movies of all time, I love the trilogy, all three are masterpieces, but this one had a darker tone and just was better in my opinion. - darthvadern

Not good, but certainly not as bad as Catwoman.

Still my favorite. - Alpha101

2 Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

I can see the hate comments coming in and yes it has some really bad acting but the action and music are well done. It's honestly not the worst thing I've ever seen. I'd give it a 5/10 at best. - SomePersonYouHate

Lol no. This movie was trash, with the worst dialogue, cgi, and acting in history. - JakePlaid

My second least favorite movie after Return of the Jedi, but still a very good movie. The prequels in general are overhated.

I think that Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is the most overhated Star Wars movie. Other than the Jar Jar scenes, some Kid Anikan moments, some of Geroge Lucas's racist designs, Natalie Portman's acting, and the midichorian scene, the Phantom Menace wasn't THAT awful. I know it looks like I listed a lot of problems, but most of those problems could be reduced or eliminated through skilled editing of the film. But Attack of the Clones was unsalvagable, cringe-worthy, boring, and destroys Anikan's character. I think that it deserves all the hate it gets. I would say that the Phantom Menace should be here instead, but it's a 90s movie.

3 The Incredible Hulk

The last superhero movie on this list and while it does have a few problems it's at least tolerable and the hate for has gotten kind of ridiculous. - SomePersonYouHate

Film might not be a masterpiece, but it is a pretty enjoyable Marvel flick.

I remember watching this, and it was a badass movie. - AnimeDrawer

People hate this movie?

4 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Sure it's not great. But there was worse that year (looking at you X-Men Origins: Wolverine & Terminator Salvation).

5 High School Musical

Not a fan of this movie but it's not that atrocious to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

I've seen worse than this - Carsrule300

All these High School Musical movies suck big time

Yess. people on TTT and others sites hate it because it's "cliche" and that "It's not REAL Disney." In reality, it's a fun tween/teen movie. It may be a little cheesy, but people act like their generation's Disney didn't have cheesy movies or T.V. shows. This movie (and subsequent sequels) may seem empty or juvenile, but that's because you grew out of this type of thing and don't want to admit it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Garfield: The Movie

Garfield looks like a rapist on the cover though - TwilightKitsune

I fell asleep during this movie because I'm a cat that loves to snooze. - DapperPickle

Uh I like this movie it fine if you don't - TinyToonsGirl45

Uhh... the cover? - Swellow

7 Little Nicky

I'll never understand the hatred for this film, one of my personal favorites with an excellent soundtrack nevertheless. - htoutlaws2012

Adam Sandler films get treated like abominations but I've honestly seen worse than this movie or his films in general. - SomePersonYouHate

Me and my mom like this Adam Sandler movie actually, although it does have some bad parts - Phillip873

One of my guilty pleasure films - Ale99

8 The Adventures of Pluto Nash

This movie's flawed, has plot holes and is a bit corny but I think that's what the director was going for it's a goofy mediocre movie that isn't as horrible as critics make it out to be. - SomePersonYouHate

This was in 2002? I thought this movie was from the mid-1990s. - DapperPickle

9 Shark Tale


Whhhat? This is a great movie anyone who says otherwise doesn’t understand life

10 X-Men: The Last Stand

This is my favourite movie

Meh at best but it's at least not as bad as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 The Matrix Reloaded

Fans of the original movie screamed for more and we got Reloaded and Revolutions. Very good movies in technical ambition but obviously not a patch on the original. Personally I felt the original story was undermined by the themes of the later movies. They should have left it with the original movie but nobody wanted to.

Not as great as the original, but still enjoyable.

12 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

This is hated? How? This is one of the best disney movies of the 2000s decade! - darthvadern

Not the best animated film Disney's ever done, but it still comes off as enjoyable.

13 50 First Dates

It's a cliche Adam Sandler movie yes but it's not terrible there was honestly far worse movies from the past decade than this. - SomePersonYouHate

I mean, it was certainly watchable - Phillip873

This movie is actually one of my favorites

14 Twilight

Seen worse to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

15 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

It's mediocre but not atrocious I mean it has its flaws and the plot's a bit dumb but I've seen worse. - SomePersonYouHate

I recently watched it again. Still a sucky movie but not too terrible - Phillip873

16 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
17 Watchmen

When did this movie get hate? If I recall correctly it was well praised when it came out. - SomePersonYouHate

It's divisive, but not really that hated.

18 Cars

People hate it because of cars 2

It's an OK movie. Really only hated because of how bad Cars 2 was. - Swellow

It’s not one of Pixar’s best but it’s not bad - Randomator

Cars 2 was so bad that it ruined the first film’s reputation by association. On its own, it’s not a bad movie. Sure, it’s the weakest of Pixar’s golden-age films, but it has a heartwarming story and great animation. My one major gripe with this film is the stereotypical, somewhat flat characters. - Zach808

19 Bee Movie

Best anime of all time!

From someone who actually watched this when it first came out, it was alright. Not that memorable but it was alright. - Swellow

According To All Known Laws Of Aviation... - JPK

Ya like jazz? - mattstat716
