Overrated Movies
We have Overrated/Underrated Actors threads... so how about an Overrated Movies thread?

What films that have been praised did you find to be mediocre? Or more simply, which films did you just not appreciate?

Sideways It was sooooooo boring I wanted to kill myself in the cinema.

Mr and Mrs Smith. Just because you have Brad and Angelina in a movie doesn´t mean it´s going to be good. It sucked.

I was sooo going to start a thread like this!

Sideways- Boring. Paul Giamatti was kind of annoying in it. Had I been a wine connoisseur maybe I would have enjoyed the movie more.

Walk The Line- Not that it was bad, but it was ok. Really boring, IMO. I don't see what all the fuss is about. And I really wanted to like it because Joaquin was in it, but no dice.

Ghost World- It was supposedly supposed to be like Welcome To The Dollhouse, yet all I saw were 2 girls, mean girls who did nothing but follow people around and talk about them.

Brick- Not bad, just overrated. Tug creeped me out, he looked ridiclously strong.

LOTR trilogy
Walk the Line
Brokeback Mountain
The Memoirs of a Geisha
Lost in Translation (though good)
Elephant
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (everything Depp does these days is over-rated crap, Burton seems to be losing his magic)
A Rebel Without A Cause
Hable Con Ella

... and many, many more.

Basically all the Hollywood films today which are said to be "new classics".

The Virgin Suicides, bored the hell out of me. With that said Josh Hartnett makes any movie he's in overrated since the only emotion he can play is constipated.

I have to agree with Brokeback Mountain, there should of been more sex scenes and then cut off the last half hour.

I like Josh Hartnett, but that made me laugh!

I must say...

Lost in Translation. Was not all that I expected.

I feel, however, that The Notebook wasn't overrated... it was a fantastic romance... we're missing good romance movies these days.
