Default Overrated/Underrated Movies

Not necessarily bad movies, but are there any films others consider "masterpieces" or "classics" that you can't quite agree with? Or maybe films you think deserve more recognition?

I don't think there's already a thread like this, if there is, I'm sorry! :3

Oh this is easy!!!!

"Dirty Fiing Dancing"!!!!!!!

The plot is weak, the music's utter rubbish and it's BORING AS HELL! The only thing it DID inspire in me was the urge to turn it off!!

Haha I actually understand. ;p If I hadn't seen it until recently, I might not have been that impressed, it's not exactly my kind of movie either, but I was brainwashed into it at a young age. xD

Clerks was a big let down after already seeing Mallrats and a few other Kevin Smith films.

p.s. It's a sailboat

Happy Gilmore is underrated whereas all the rest of Adam Sandler's films are overrated.

Meet the Robinsons is suuuuuper underrated.

It's easily one of my favorite Disney movies. So damn good! I think the time they made it in is what killed it. Disney was failing, so they couldn't give it the full attention it needed and people probably didn't expect much out of it and ignored it. But even then, I still love the hell out of it. It's hilarious but heartfelt and just seems so genuine with the message it's trying to give. And I love the characters! Especially the Robinsons themselves. They needed way more screentime!

^ Agreed! That film is underrated. I don't think it's as good as you give it credit for, but it definitely is one of the good classics.
