11 Totally Overrated Movies From the Last 15 Years: Don't Believe the Hype!!

You know that kid on awards night who picks up the certificate in every possible category there? Math, science, art, underwater basket weaving?

Yeah, that kid's totally overrated. (Or a suck up.) That same thing totally happens in Hollywood with overrated movies sweeping awards season year after year. 

Obviously, sometimes movies are legitimately good and thus become all that anyone will talk about. This is not a rare or unreasonable phenomenon.

Still, you just want to scream and vow never to see the film for as long as you live, even if it means you don't get the "I'll never let go, Jack!" inside joke.

Other movies, however, are legitimately bad and yet the critics still fawn over them. We're not $ure how that happen$ either. (coughAVATARcough)

So which recent films fit the overhyped bill? Here are 11 totally overrated movies from the last 15 years. Agree? Disagree? Tell us in the comments.

The Departed
Martin Scorcese's The Departed featured an all-star ensemble cast, but it felt a little too much like a clunky wannabe of Japanese film Infernal Affairs.
