Yeah, it makes the Resident Evil movies look amazing, too.

I think the most overrated movie I heard of was "Napoleon Dynamite". It made me mad, because everyone kept saying how awesome this movie was, but I went and saw it, and it just struck me as boring. I didn't find the main character particularly likeable or unique. Someone once compared me to him, which I hated.

The word comedy doesn't come to mind when I try to describe either of those movies. Jim Carrey considers Man on the Moon to be a drama at heart, and I agree. It's nothing like Ace Ventura or The Grinch. Clearly, you've never seen it, but if you liked the Truman Show, you might like Man on the Moon.

There's this one weird example, in that it actually didn't do that well with people, but moreso with critics. It's the original Jimmy Neutron movie. I think that was even nominated for best Animated Movie! I thought it was extremely dumb with unlikeable characters. I heard the show that followed wasn't that popular with people either and I kind of resent that too.

Those aren't generally considered to be good movies, even (and perhaps especially) by people who like the games.

Who wouod make a comedy of the life of a man who was not a comedian and died of cancer? That would be fucked up. The people who made it did not label it a comedy. Maybe they tricked the viewers a bit in the promotion of it to get to Jim Carrey's fans who know him as a comedy man. It was meant to be a drama and Jim Carrey was hired for his decent portrayal of Andy and his experience in dramatic acting which he was trying to get back into at the time.

I think Dark Knight Rises is overrated. Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are great movies imo (though they have also been called overrated), but Dark Knight Rises wasn't half as good (imo, once again), and yet still received just as much praise.

Also, The Avegers. If I had never heard anyone say a single word about that movie, I would simply dislike it as a movie and not ever watch it again. Things being how they are, I absolutely and unreasonably hate that movie.


It made more sense in my head.

The Expendables, Just because you gotta bunch of action stars in one film doesn't mean it's magically a awesome movie. underwhelming action bland story and Schwarzenegger appearance was just pointless.

There's nothing complex about it but for some reason people keep perpetuating the idea that it is so other go and see it with that idea planted in their minds and come out saying the same stupid bullshit.

What do you expect when the movie purposely wanted people to interpret the ending for themselves? Not surprising it leaves room for conversation,

The Big Lebowski, I thought it was okay but people tell me it's the most hilarious movie ever. I only laughed a few times throughout the film.

This for me as well. My friend (who's a pretentious douche about movies, mind you) recommended it to me, and while I really liked John Goodman, and would consider the movie as a whole to be pretty good, it didn't deserve the huge build up I got before actually watching it.

I don't think the Matrix is the mindblowing experience that people made it out to be, and I saw it BEFORE the crappy sequels.

It just might be, but it's still his opinion, the film has comedic scenes even if he doesn't think so.

Alright I might watch it then. Is it that good?

Lost Boys. It's a fairly good movie, but fuck is it overrated. Begotten, despite having a cool visual style, is fucking boring.

Bullshit, Liar Liar (showed a great ability to convey he couldn't lie), Man on the Moon(from most accounts he did an excellent job of portraying Andy Kaufman), and The Number 23(just a mind fuck of a movie and a great alternative to his comedy roles).

I thought it was great, and I went into it thinking it would be at best, just okay. It does have some fairly funny moments, but it's not meant to be a comedy in the same sense that most of his other movies would be. Again, if you liked The Truman Show, I think you'll like this as well, because those are my two favorite Jim Carrey movies.
