Sometimes movies just get way more love and attention than they deserve. We've compiled this list of 2014's most overrated films and this is your chance to vote for the movies you thought didn't live up to their buzz. These 2014 movies had so much hype, we wonder if they deserved it or were they just overvalued by the Hollywood buzz machine? Some of these 2014 films were still great movies, just not quite as great as we were told they'd be.

The films on this list were supposed to blow your mind and change things for comedy, drama, and cinema in general. But were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sex Tape, A Haunted House 2, The Nut Job, The Other Woman, or Guardians of the Galaxy really as great as everyone said they'd be? Other 2014 overhyped movies might include A Million Ways to Die in the West, The Quiet Ones, or Annabelle. Were any of these 2014 movies given too much attention?

Can you think of even more overrated films released in 2014 that are missing from this list? Feel free to add them to make the list comprehensive. Who knows, maybe you'll find a bunch of moviegoers who agree that some of these films just got way more love than they deserved.

If you think these movies were overrated, wait until you see the most overrated movies of all time as well as the most overrated actors and most overrated directors of all time!
