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.
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. I guess I like my movies to have a plot since the only movie I actually enjoyed that didn't have much of a plot was Clerks. 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. I also never emotionally connected with the characters.
I find it hard to believe that this is a cult classic. I was asleep most of the time 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.
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.
I didn't really like this movie. I saw this at school in grade 5 and I didn't like it back then and I'm not sure if I would like it now. I remember not liking the characters and I remember finding it boring. I have no plans to re-watch this.
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.
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.
What a bore this was. I was bored by this film and was waiting for it to end. You might think I might be harsh with my rating, but I can't remember one good thing about this movie. I think the only reason I watched it because a part of it was filmed in my local area.
This is on the list because lots of people think it is a good movie, but I thought it was OK. Maybe my expectations were a bit high for this. The reason they were is because it is known to be Van Damme's best film, but I enjoyed Universal Soldier more than this and I still gave it the same rating as this.
This was my fault. It was another one I had high expectations for. The action scenes weren't bad, but I just couldn't get into the story or dialogue. It did get interesting at one point, but it didn't last too long.
I thought the first one was a funny movie. Too bad I can't say the same thing about this one. It suffered from something that I call American Pie Syndrome. That's when a movie has a mix of jokes that are funny and jokes that aren't funny. I also found some of the humor immature. The first movie had some immature humor, but it was actually funny.
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 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.
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.
