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.

Way to overhated it's actually one of my favorite movies

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 loved this

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.

People hate this movie?

4 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Compared to Dragonball: Evolution; it's a masterpiece!

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

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

This is my favourite movie

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.

This one doesn't get a lot of hate.

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

20 Speed Racer
21 G-Force

I thought it was fine.

Mediocre but I've seen worse. - SomePersonYouHate

I watched this Film 10 minutes ago it's awesome. - PatrickStar3

Saw some clips of it, didn't like it. Sorry.

22 Shrek the Third

It is the most depressing Shrek movie, but it makes it more interesting. The king died, and Fiona gets pregnant. But it wasn't bad, I just hated the scene where Shrek and Fiona were pampered to replace the king and queen, it was a bit disturbing.

As AnimeDrawer said, since it's the most depressing one it makes it more interesting, the villan had great motivations, the story was so interesting, this is the only one in the franchise too that has some scary scenes (may I mention Shrek's dream). - darthvadern

Shrek the thi- oh my god it makes sense now
I thought that was just a weird way of saying Shrek 3 but no, it actually makes sense._. - mattstat716

23 The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl

This was so weird and campy I can't possibly begin to describe it. The kid has the strangest imagination.

This movie is part of my childhood but it not the best childhood movie but it still a good movie - TinyToonsGirl45

24 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

This movie was well received when it came out hell it still gets praise to this day. It's not hated in the slightest. - SomePersonYouHate

Esqueeze me? This is a good film, though? - mattstat716

25 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
26 Son of the Mask
27 The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
28 The Matrix Revolutions
29 Hulk (2003)
30 Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale

This is actually my favorite TnJ movie. I have fond memories of watching this movie on Cartoon Network when I was little and I even own it on DVD! I watch this movie once (around Christmastime) every year. - PerfectImpulseX

31 Catwoman

Sure it's a bit goofy and dumb but there's been far worse Superhero movies out there. - SomePersonYouHate

Nope. This really is god awful movie.

32 Juno

It's not the ultimate guide to pregnancy like some people would say. But it's quite quirky.

33 Punisher: War Zone
34 Scary Movie 2
35 Norbit
36 Crash
37 The Golden Compass

If you like this film, that's okay. I just found it boring.

38 Elektra
39 Daredevil
40 Friday the 13th

I think it's a faithful remake. People think this ruined the franchise? I'm pretty sure previous movies ALREADY took care of that. The absolutely ridiculous Jason Takes Manhattan, the terrible Jason goes to Hell, and the laughably atrocious Jason X. I rest my case.

41 Bad Boys II
42 Terminator Salvation
43 Superman Returns
44 Scary Movie 3
