Most Overhated Movies

The Top Ten

1 Frozen

Over-hyped, over-played, overly-loved, but not deserving of THIS much backlash. - BKAllmighty

I don't like or hate this movie, but to be 100% honest, I'd rather have people watch it instead of Transformers and Twilight. Just saying.

It seems like some people are confused about the term 'overhated.' Several movies on this list are over loved. Now Catwoman, the Fantastic Four movies, The Lion King 2, and Elektra are overhated.

Frozen is both overrated and overhated. But otherwise I agree. - Cesium

It's decent, people do not like the oversaturation of it though. - iliekpiez

2 Spider-Man 3

This movie was way better than any of the amazing spider-man movies, with Andrew Garfield, in my opinion. It got so much hate for nothing. It was a pretty cool movie.

It's far from the best, yet far from the worst. All the hate it got was a little out of hand. - Entranced98

This movie is good so stop complaining.

I liked Spider-Man 3. I don’t understand where all the hate came from - KingSlayer93316

3 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

It's Fine If You Don't Like It, But The Hate Has Gotten A Little Too Extreme - JPK

This movie does not the hate it gets at all. It is one of the best Star Wars films to date. The Prequels deserve more hate than this well made masterpiece.

4 Minions

Stupid and forgettable, so just forget it. - naFrovivuS

I am rather impressed that Illumination made a compelling story with characters we cannot understand.

Very forgettable. To be honest, it deserves to be hated because of how bad it was - KingSlayer93316

It Was Okay (Don't Spam Me With Hate Comments) - JPK

5 The Emoji Movie

Bad Movie, But Saying Stuff Like "It's Worse Than Hitler" Is Too Far - JPK

I actually saw this movie, it's not that bad. Look at any list of worst movies of any time frame that includes 2017, or a list of worst family movies, or whatever, and there it is at or near the top. - allamassal

It sucked but people take their hate on it way too far!

The hate on this movie was pretty much just a trend.

6 Ghostbusters (2016)

This movie has the worst hate-dom.

OK, so let’s list off the overblown and totally unjustified ways this movie has been hated:
1. All the boycotting and sight-unseen hatred purely based off the bad trailers.
2. Downvoting respectable and level headed reviewers such as John Campea and Alicia Malone for saying anything positive about the movie, but supporting idiots like MrBranToast for bashing on the movie before even seeing it.
3. Death-threatening Harold Ramis’s daughter after she took issue with all the people who used her dead Father as an excuse to hate the movie.
4. Harassment of the staff at Tufts Medical Center in Boston for letting the movie’s stars visit sick children.
5. People pretending to be making a stand against Hollywood pumping out remakes and sequels instead of original movies, when they go and see the many other reboots and sequels that came out (Batman V Superman, Legend of Tarzan, Finding Dory, Captain America: Civil War etc) over anything original.

Look guys, at the end ...more

7 Cars 2

This movie is overall pretty good...

8 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I was surprised at first to hear about the amount of people who didn't like this movie! I absolutely loved this movie. Sure, it was a little similar to A New Hope. WHO CARES! It was still an amazing movie on it's own merits, not as a sequel. Sure, Rey was a little too good at everything, but she was still a character that I overall liked, and she still had flaws (i. e. longing to stay on the planet I forgot the name of for her parents). If you don't like this movie that's fine, this is just what I think. I went into the movie judging it on it's own merits, not expecting it to be the perfect sequel, and I thought as a movie, it was incredibly amazing.

This Film Failed in the writing, the Characters, the Story. I would call it the most expensive fanfic ever made, but that is an Insult to all the fanfic writers out their. At least they can come up with new Ideas.

I think the problem is that the developers were so busy trying to make it similar to a New Hope (With Cooler Special Effects), That they forgot how to make a good film. They forgot to give Rey character flaws to make her feel human, Finn was nothing more than Token Comic relief (He was the only somewhat believable character, and they wasted him). Kylo Ren's arc is jarring to watch (One minute, he orders the slaughter of a village, the next day, "I'm Being Torn Apart. I want to be free of this pain." Are we supposed to care about this character? I cared more about Jar Jar.)

Even the prequels had better writing and more believable characters. Even if the dialogue was a bit awkward. At Least Anakin Skywalker had Character Flaws.

Sure it's 60% the same of A New Hope, but at least it's not like the prequels, *chills down spine* - GreninjaGuy

The only good Star Wars Prequel was Revenge of the Sith. And the only good trilogy of Star Wars is the original. But The Force Awakens is the only sequel Star Wars Movie that I liked. - TGBBOD

Half of the people who hate it do it to look cool - iliekpiez

9 Transformers: Age of Extinction

I thought it was better than 2 and 3. Still do, 2 years later. - BKAllmighty

It wasn't that bad. - DapperPickle


10 Man of Steel

This is my favorite superman movie - PeeledBanana

The Newcomers

? Rocky V

The Contenders

11 Monster House
12 The Last Airbender

Deserves the hate it has. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Deserves hate. :/ - TGBBOD

13 Pixels

A great movie, why'd everybody hate it? - growlbunny

I really liked it - PeeledBanana

It was ok - KingSlayer93316

14 Grown Ups 2

Not as good as Grown-Ups, but I can tolerate it - KingSlayer93316

15 Sing
16 The Cat in the Hat

I actually like

This movie is ok in my oppinion. But I would honestly say, its bad.

17 Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

I actually really enjoyed it, however, my full opinion is a layered one that requires more than a sentence or two to get across, so please don't think that I loved everything about the movie, because I don't. - BKAllmighty

I just watched it again yesterday, (since I didn't really pay attention the first time I watched it) and it wasn't as bad as people said it was. It wasn't a perfect movie, but I actually enjoyed watching it. I didn't really like how the CGI looked though. Some scenes looked like a video game. lol
... Also, it felt similar to Avengers. The mother box thing and the infinity stones... - TheFourthWorld

It was a good movie - growlbunny

Martha! - Not_A_Weeaboo

18 Shark Tale
19 Shrek Forever After
20 Elysium
21 My Little Pony: The Movie (2017)

Anti-Bronies Spammed Its IMDB Score Down From 7.1/10 To 6.5/10 In ONE Week
It's Rotten Tomatoes Score Keeps PLUMMETING (Critic Opinions Are Still Respected)
I Think I've Said Enough - JPK

22 Suicide Squad

I honestly thought people hated it because it had Lil Wayne and a bunch of other overrated artists on the soundtrack.

Dumb at parts,but tolerable at others.

The IHE review summed it up. - DapperPickle


23 Terminator: Genisys
24 Paul Blart: Mall Cop
25 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

If the Phantom Menace came out in 1977 everyone would love it and a New Hope Came out in 1999 it would be overhated (Oh deny all you want, but we can't change time or anything else)

Wasn't the best Star Wars and wouldn't even crack the top 6 but it's not an awful movie. Liam Nieson did a good job a qui gon, and besides Jar Jar, the whole premise was fairly buyable with the exception of midichlorians

26 Fred: The Movie

Kinda deserves the hate because Fred is really annoying - KingSlayer93316

27 Cars

Cars was good. Why all the hate? - KingSlayer93316

28 Chicken Little

This movie stinks pretty hard, if you ask me. Maybe I need to watch it again. - BKAllmighty

Chicken Little may have the lowest RT for a WDAC but there are plenty of other movies out there that make this, and Cars 2, look like a masterpiece.

29 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
30 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
31 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

While the film isn't perfect, at least it there were a few elements that redeemed it (Forest Fight anyone? )

Far from being horrendous. This movie was quite good. Awesome soundtrack, epic fight scenes, funny humor, and Linkin Park in the post credits! - TheDarkOne_221b

Well. It wasn't great, but it's not the dire abomination that many people make it out to be.

It's a fun mecha movie whose story has a strong shonen anime resemblence. - Martin_Canine

32 The Punisher (2004)

I don’t care what people say this movie was epic

33 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
34 Signs
35 The Village
36 Transformers: Dark of the Moon

In my opinion this should replace #3 on here.

Best TF film ever

37 Super Mario Bros.

The Goomba in the movie is very scary - KingSlayer93316

38 X-Men: Apocalypse
39 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

I don't hear a lot of hate for this one.

40 Where the Dead Go to Die

In my opinion this movie is not that bad, it has some cool scenes and some nice storylines in the final part, defiantly not the worst movie ever - Myname2

I've seen worse things than it. - PerfectImpulseX

How is THIS overhated? , no offense, but this is PORNOGRAPHY, how can you find this overhated? - VideoGamefan5

41 The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl

A silly kids movie.

42 The Lion King

It's a good movie, anyway I used to have collected Lion King magazines when this came out.

Deserves to be hated. Not wonderful at all.

Lion King hater is back - KingSlayer93316

43 Stay
44 The Greatest Showman

It was marvellous in my opinion. It is the second best movie of 2017 and one of my favourites, please don’t hate me for liking it.. - Swampert02

45 The Lion King 1½
46 Alien 3
47 Batman & Robin
48 Alien: Covenant
49 Ice Age: Collision Course
50 Daredevil
