Question of the Week

What is the most overrated movie of all time?

With the release of "The Hobbit" (and the crew expressing no desire to go watch it), it got us thinking about some of the most overrated movies. So this week we want to hear from you - in your opinion - what is one movie that the world absolutely loves, yet you find to be nothing but an overrated waste of time?

Phil Schneider commented…

To keep it seasonal, I feel like A Christmas Story & Christmas Vacation are highly overrated. They're not bad, but I only need to watch them once every four or five years.

Zach Johnson commented…

The entire Dark Knight series...nah I'm just kidding!

Jay Gray commented…

Are all the old podcasts available for purchase yet?

Dumb & Dumber. Highly overrated. Incredibly stupid.

Michael Lucero commented…

I know this is years after the fact, and I'm sure no one will ever read this comment; but I'm a relatively new listener (started this July), and I'm just now hearing this episode. I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed that (A) none of the group is a Tolkien fan, and (B) that their portrayal of Tolkien fans was so harsh and unfair. As a huge Tolkien fan myself, I do not at all find him to be this monolothic cultural force that Cameron and the others make him out to be. In fact, my own experiences are exactly the opposite. Bring up Tolkien, and you're more likely to be the only one in the room who likes his writing. Of course, now that the films have become so popular, that's changed a little, but it's only changed in that if you bring up Tolkien, you're probably the only one who is a fan of the books instead of the movies.
