Mine would have to be Titanic

due to the mass size of the movie and the theme song--some people say it is a great movie.

They shoud have put more effort into the screen play and some of the acting was wooden

what other movies go heap of acalades or an overblown repuatation--when it should have gotte heaps of cow dung instread

Talladega Nights (Ballad of Ricky Bobby)

I really hate this movie and so many people love it for some reason.

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

Good movie, but not really one of the best IMO.

The Departed gets put up there with classics like Good Fellas and Casino. It was a terrible movie with some great actors doing some of their worst acting.

I thought the story was pretty lame as well.

From a couple of years ago, "A History of Violence." Critics went nuts over it, but compared to other movies and shows that deal with the same ideas, it was pitiful. It was like a third grader's remake of The Godfather.

Maybe, but "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" was underrated!

I don't think that Gladiator is a good movie, let alone a Best Picture caliber film.

And say what you want about Dances with Wolves, 4 hours is too ****ing long for a movie no matter how good it is.

agreed. All I heard from people was how great it was and blah blah blah. I thought it was average at best, nothing impressive. It doesnt even factor in probably in the top 20 movies I saw this year.

Seriously TDK is not the best movie ever made nor should it even be in the top 20. The movie is good, its acted well and written well, but its not that great. Just because Heath died does not make it the greatest movie ever.

And anchorman...i walked out of the theater for tha tmovie, i love will farrel, his movies are really fun, but other then the news group fight, that movie was horrid.

I felt both were ridiculously overhyped, and I didn't enjoy either one.
