    My list is as follows in no perticular order:
    -Napolean Dynamite- So stupid, not even stupid funny
    -Tommy Boy- Like Napolean, Stupid
    -You Got Served- could of been better if there was hardcore violence between the servers and the servees
    -Scary Movie 4- Tries to hard for a laugh

    --That's my story and I'm sticking to it

    some movies that are overrated in my opinion include but are not limited to

    The Big lebowsky

    office space

    the crow

    titanic

    the matrix
    The boondock saints
    as much as I love this movie I will say it is over rated but only because of WHY it is praised, the idiots who love the killing only and don't recognize the meaning behind the killings or anything about the catholic faith or Irish/Gaelic beliefs (I myself am 2nd genration Irish and can understand Gaelic... but cannot speak it)

    titanic sucks a big one due to the celine dion song and the horrible ending. i wish the old lady, when she went to throw the diamond/sapphire/whatever jewel it was-over the side of the boat, that she had slipped and fallen in.

    movies of hype:
    the matrix series
    n. dynamite (i do like it. just an odd and interesting movie.)
    scarface
    the ring (the best part from the first one is when the horse dies)
    the grudge (not scary or very interesting)
    fast and the furious (managed to watch this one while flying from detroit to amsterdam with no sound. the cars were nice to look at and the hot babes. but outside of that mess, the movis was garbage)

    and have you noticed how for every piece of crap movie there is some loser from a t.v. station/radio station you have never heard of nor ever will again commenting on how good the movie is? that's the stuff i detest with movie advertising.

    i think matrix 1 isnt overrated. it captured beautifully on film what comic boosk and anime have doen for years. suspending the moments of importance. brilliant.


    however, the rest are way overrated

    American History X: good, but one of the best of all time? Not really. They should have gotten someone better than Edward Furlong.

    Napoleon Dynamite: For me the funniest part was when they shot the cow in front of the bus full of kids. Other than that though I don't recall laughing less at a comedy. The main character was pretty unsympathetic. He brought everything on himself it seemed. As far as comedies about nerds Revenge of the Nerds beats this.

    Matrix: I enjoyed it but IMO this one is overrated too. I think it was praised highly because of how burned people felt about the new Star Wars. Some good action but it tries too hard to seem deep.

    Office Space. It was amusing, and it had its moments, but it wasn't the laugh riot other people made it out to be.

    All Harry Potter movies.


    Agreed on all and add All the Fast and the Furious films. There are way better films out there with car chases in them. My older brother likes these films and I think he is crazy. People need to start watching The Road Warrior more for real car chases.

    Anything else that I find depressing is overrated as well. I want to be happy with life and not depressing myself to no end.

    Most modern films in general are overrated because they are unoriginal and have shaky cameras that make it look like it is being filmed with a video camera.

    The Lord Of The Rings...

    Mind you, I'm a HUGE D& fan as well as Tolkein. But for some strange reason, the Lord Of The Rings just didn't push my buttons.
