Top Ten Most Overrated Movies Based On Books

The Top Ten

1 Twilight

I have a friend who likes the books (by the way, BURN THEM WITH FIRE TOO) and even she agrees the movies suck.

Twilight is awful in every way. How you can compare this to anything above bad is beyond me.

Awful Movie, Enough Said - VideoGamefan5

A moody, entitled girl with no emotions (Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart) goes to a rainy town where she meets a pervert vampire (Robert Pattison, playing Edward) and a stupid wherewolf who takes his shirt off a lot in order to attract teenage girls (Jacob Black, being played by Taylor Laughtner. Nothing special - ToptenPizza

2 The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Even more nauseating than the first one. - ToptenPizza

Would not cause disgust, boredom only

3 Frozen

It was based off the snow queen, and it wasn't horrible but after a while it got boring, but the fanbase kept pushing and pushing it, until it became overrated. The only reason people like it is because the lack of "prince saves princess". - ToptenPizza

This should be like number 1! A year or more has past and people are still crazy about it. - SamuiNeko

I hated this movie so much

There was a book?! - micahisthebest

4 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 V 2 Comments
5 I Know What You Did Last Summer

4 kids slashing each other! How original! Worst slasher film ever. - ToptenPizza

Super cheesy and dumb - missyweirdo

6 Alice In Wonderland
7 Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

I hate Twilight, but the movies do have an excuse because the books are terrible... Being a staunch Percy Jackson fan, this movie made me want to jump from my balcony

I wonder if they had a cheap budget for this film because it absolutely sucked.

Compared to the books, the movie is just...ugh - natalily

I hated that they stopped the movies before Nico Di Angelo and the Romans...then it would been better

8 How the Grinch Stole Christmas

A good Christmas tale, but other than that it's pretty bland. - ToptenPizza

Sure, Jim Carrey has some funny lines in there, but the voice is annoying,the whos are terrifying, they extend the run time while trying to keep the moral intact, which is very hard to do, so anyone short of Disney could barely do it. If you have any real taste, just watch the original 26 minute T.V. special.Thatone was well-animated, kept the moral intact, had a great song in it, and was overall a better use of your Christmas time.

9 The Fault In Our Stars

Wait this is NOT overrated, it's actually pretty good! - missyweirdo

I don't see anything wrong with this one. - RockFashionista

Overrated with a capital O! - RiverClanRocks

Was it good? Yes.
A masterpiece? Not really

10 The Hunger Games

Very overrated! The movies are really bad, slow, and boring! It has a super shaky-cam and it it super predictable! The plot is plain ridiculous and there is like NO character development! Everybody knows this movie and I don't see why it's famous it's just eh - missyweirdo

The Contenders

11 Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
12 Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
13 Diary of a Wimpy Kid
14 Battlefield Earth V 1 Comment
15 Carrie

WHAT IN THE WORLD? CARRIE IS VERY UNDERRATED! THERE IS LIKE NOBODY WHO KNOWS THIS MOVIE AND THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING! - missyweirdo

16 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Sadly, this was not a good adaptation of the final book after Part 1 was amazing. The Harry Potter film series ended on a whimper, not a bang. - SailorSedna

17 World War Z
18 How to Train Your Dragon
