Some movies just don't live up to the hype, and there are loads of different reasons that happens. For many of the films on this list, big money was backing them, they had an unexplained cult following, or they just really weren't worth the price of admission.
Here, we've compiled a list of the most overrated films of all time...
Basically, Avatar was Fern Gully with a $237 million budget. Even though this movie was the highest-grossing film of all time until 2019's Avengers: Endgame came out, there was little in the way of a plot. The worst part about this is that there are multiple sequels planned for the near future, but nobody even remembers what happened in the first one.
People either hate or love Forrest Gump, but both sides of the coin regularly believe that the movie has received way too much hype over the years. It's important to factor in people's nostalgic connection with Forrest Gump because if it wasn't released at the perfect time, this movie wouldn't have become so beloved. The plot is cool, but Forrest's love interest treats him extremely poorly, which pulls the character interactions into a deeply saddening place in an otherwise cheerful setting.
