Skip to comments.The 20 Most Overrated Movies of All Time
Posted on 12/13/2006 5:40:45 PM PST by EveningStar
It happens to everyone who loves movies: You're in a conversation at a bar, or at a wedding, or online, and someone begins rhapsodizing about one of their favorite movies and you can't help but say, "Uh, that movie sucks. It's totally overrated." How two perfectly well-balanced individuals can have such drastically different views of the same film is one of the great wonders of being a film fanatic. It happens to us at Premiere all the time, enough so that sometimes we find ourselves questioning who we work with (boy, did it get ugly here when Love, Actually came out, and some of us are still snickering over our boss's love for Bowfinger, not to mention his affection for The Last Samurai). Well, we decided to let our staff go at each other regarding some of the more beloved movies of all time, and, sure enough, sobbing can still be heard coming from the bathroom stalls. Relationships have been strained. Egos bruised. Consider this a film lovers' quarrel, an admittedly rabid one.

Field of Dreams
Good Will Hunting
Gone With the Wind
Field of Dreams isn't overrated.
Rudy is though....

I went to the link to have a look, but shied away from going to "next."
The ultimate overrated movies:
An Inconvenient Truth
Oh wait I see this is an actual list.
Someone wasted their time watching most of those movies...
I do have the complete list copied to a text file but I didn't post it because of copyright laws. However, it is interesting to see what the critics have to say.
March of the Penguins, would make my list.
I agreed with a few. I could name a bunch on my personal list.
Dances with Wolves
Anything starring Jennifer Lopez
Anything starring Meg Ryan
I love Gump, the rest are boring.
Matrix II - Faux Psycho Intellectualism
2001 A Space Odyssey - The Emperor has no clothes
I don't agree with all of them, but 2001 is on the list. That's all I ask for.
All I know is that yall better leave my Forrest Gump alone!
Now I'll have a little more Bubba Gump shrimp and wait here in my place with the snow people. Until the bus comes...
There are 20 movies. I listed only 6.
Not on the list that should be:
Shane (I hate every wuss in that town. "Shane, come back and fight our battles for us Shane! We'll be waiting right here outside!")
