For a teen comedy that's known to be the funniest of it's kind, I did not laugh once. With most overrated movies I can find at least one good thing about them. I couldn't find anything good about it and it's the most overrated movie of all time.

Bridesmaids (2011)
Oh God, this is one of the worst comedies ever. I've seen some awful movies and watched them from start to finish, but this movie I stopped watching at the 55 minute mark. For a critically-acclaimed comedy, I couldn't find anything funny about it. The food poisioning scene was so fucking revolting and I don't know how anyone could find it funny. If I had to choose between finishing this movie or re-watching Bride Wars, I'd re-watch Bride Wars! Yeah, it's that bad.

The movie started out OK, but it kept on getting worse. The whole movie was just ridiculous and I can tell it was trying to be disturbing, but it just didn't work. I'm surprised by it's 7.7 rating on IMDB. I usually don't agree with the critic's consensus, but this is one of those times where I can understand why critics didn't like it. Ashton Kutcher can't pull off a serious role in my opinion. The reason I didn't give this a 1 star rating is because there is a couple aspects I like about this movie. This is just a poor man's Donnie Darko.

Citizen Kane (1941)
The beginning scene is pretty good, but the story was lacking, the dialogue was awful and the acting was over the top. I can't give this movie half a star because of the rosebud scene and while I hate this movie, it did change cinema and I am grateful for that.

Matthew McConaughey delivers a very over the top performance and Jared Leto takes on a role that doesn't suit him well. To think that Matthew won the Oscar instead of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Traffic (2000)
I really wanted to like this movie, but the dialogue was poor, the talented cast in this movie was wasted and I found this movie to be very generic.

The beginning of the movie was passable, but it got worse near the end. I feel bad for Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson for being involved in this film. If a movie has no plot then it must have something to offer like well-developed characters, good dialogue and if it's supposed to be funny then actually try to be funny. I must be missing something since it has a 7.8 on IMDB and a 95% on RottenTomatoes. You might think I might be harsh with my rating, but their aren't that many good things about this movie.

The character development was very poor in my opinion. Some of them were horny nerds and some of them just weren't likeable. The script really wasn't impressive either. One thing that bugged me was how many party scenes there were. Does a movie like this need that many? The reason for my generous rating is because I really didn't think this was a bad movie and there were some things I liked about this movie like Fincher's direction.

It may have been groundbreaking at the time, but since this movie came out there have been better cop movies than this one. Everything about this movie is good, but it's far from the best crime movie.

I find it hard to believe that this is a cult classic. My eyes were closed during certain parts mainly because I was tired, but even when I was awake I wasn't really enjoying it. I never really cared for the characters and I thought the humor was forced. When I was enjoying the movie it was because it had a good soundtrack and that kept me from giving it a lower score. Humor is subjective, so if you ever watch it then you might enjoy it more than I did.

Child's Play (1988)
This was stupid and not scary at all. It has a dumb premise, bad acting and it was predictable. I'm not sure if this is meant to be taken seriously, but the movie takes itself pretty seriously. How Chucky became a horror icon is beyond me.

The movie wasn't scary in my opinion. It could've been scary if the acting wasn't bad and the whole thing wasn't predictable. The dialogue was bad, but sometimes it was embarrassingly bad. I also felt like it was trying to be like Alfred Hitchcock since one of the characters last names is Hitchcock. This is another one of those times where I feel like I'm missing something. Not the worst movie I've seen, but pretty overrated.

This movie was a mess. The time length was too long. It usually wouldn't bother me, but the fact that it was boring didn't help. I was spending most of the movie waiting for it too end. The only part I remember from this movie is Kiera Knightley yelling about some shit I don't care about. You might think that I might be a bit generous with my rating, but I didn't really hate the movie, it was just heavily flawed. What I like is that just because it has a decent rating on here and IMDB doesn't mean there aren't a lot of people who were disappointed with it like I was.

Don't get me wrong this is a good movie, but I just didn't think it was a masterpiece. The twist ending was great, but everything else in the movie was just good. This isn't the most overrated movie I've seen because I can see the appeal, but it's still overrated just because I didn't like it as much as everyone else did.

I thought this was OK. This movie just didn't have an impact on me. I guess I could see why someone would like it, but again it wasn't for me.

This one falls in the "a little overrated" category. I liked it, but I didn't like it as much as most people did.

Even though I loved movies that are called overrated like Avatar and The Dark Knight doesn't mean there aren't movies everyone else enjoyed, but I didn't.

In no specific order.

Agreed on Spider-Man, Harold & Kumar, Pirates 3, and Get Smart. I personally enjoy So I Married an Axe Murderer, probably because I've seen it so many times over the years. Haven't watched Last Boy Scout in ages, so it's possible I don't like it as well as I remember, but we definitely disagree on Dazed & Confused and The Usual Suspects (though I'm also overdue for a re-watch of the latter, which may alter my rating now).

The rest of these I had no interest in watching anyway, so I probably won't go out of my way to check them out haha.

Wait til you watch "The Boondock Saints" it's not as good as people say it is.
Posted: 3 years ago at Aug 24 0:23
I actually doubt I'll dislike that movie. It sounds like the kind of movie I would like.

Edit: Seen it and I was right.
