The Most Overrated Movies of All Time

List Criteria: Movies on this list have received some critical acclaim (they should have a Metascore of 50 or more) but you think they are terrible

The most overrated movies of all time in one list, ranked in order of how overrated they really are. Being overrated doesn't mean it's not a good movie, or even a classic movie, it just means the movie's not living up to the hype surrounding it. Some of these overrated movies are Academy Award winners, some are the best comedies of all time, and some are even considered to be among the best movies ever, but all these movies can also be bunched into this list of the most overrated movies of all time.

These are movies that film critics hailed as brilliant, movies your friends said you had to see, comedies you would fall over laughing at, and dramas so deep you'd never look at the world the same way again. Except that you did watch them, they did suck, and now you're questioning your friends' taste in everything. From Avatar and all the Twilights, to Love Actually (you monster) and Trainspotting (maybe? Up to you!), these are the films you hate, despite their popularity and/or acclaim.

What are the most overrated films? What classic movies are overrated? What are some top movies that everyone loves but some people hate? This is by no means a complete list of overrated movies, but it's a whole bunch of them. If you know of a supposedly great movie that's overrated and not on the list of the most overrated movies, make sure to add it so other people can save their time and give it a miss.
