Most overrated....

actor/actress/movie/book...you name it....

Actresses
1. Jennifer Aniston-I think she is so overrated as an actress. She seems to only do Rom-Coms and her characters are so the same. I can't say that I've seen one of her movies and immediately think "omg I have to buy this movie". I liked Marley and Me but quite honestly it was because of Owen Wilson and I loved the book, it wasn't because of her. I thought Picture Perfect was a cute movie, but it was just that, cute.

2. Kristen Stewart- Now I get that Bella has no depth as a character but really to portray her with no depth is pretty sad. When I watch the Twilight movies I think "god this could have been done so much better" in terms of Bella and Kristen's acting ability.

3. Vanessa Hudgens

Actors
1. Robert Pattison-I might get killed here by "Team Edward" fans, but his portrayal of Edward is just as bad as Kristen's portrayal of Bella. When I read the books I envisioned much better.

2. Russell Crowe
3. Zac Efron

Movies
1. The Gladiator
2. The English Patient
3. Shakespeare in Love
4. Titanic

Singer
1. Jennifer Lopez
2. Brittney Spears
3. Ashlee Simpson
4. Jessica Simpson

Off the top of my head

Movie: The Hangover. Just ugh.

TV Show: Glee. It's okay, but really, it is not NEARLY as big a deal as people make it out to be. Seriously, people act like I committed some kind of crime for not following this show regularly.

Book: Eat Pray Love. I just don't see what the fuss is all about.

Tatum Channing is like the new Richard Gere.

Robin Williams. i get it, you're hyper and wacky. you and Steve Martin did some funny stuff 30 years ago. but if we were all stranded out at sea, in shark infested waters, i'd toss your ass outta my fuckin boat with the quickness. i wouldn't even eat you. you'd be stale and generic.

I agree with Jennifer and Kristen. And I'll throw in Angelina while I'm at it. I know that'll piss off some people but I've seen some of her movies and she's not exactly awesome--she's mostly lips and I got those.

Actors
Zac and Robert

Movies

Friday. It was funny but not "OMG best comedy ever" funny.

Singer

Vanessa Hudgens
Pitbull
T-Payne/Weezy/Akon/all the other hypemen turned main act

I like Glee, but I understand the feeling. I've never been into Grey's Anatomy and when I say I'm not people react the same way. So for me Grey's Anatomy is highly overrated.

I haven't read Eat Pray Love, but I wasn't impressed with the movie. It just dragged and dragged and dragged. I kept looking at my watch thinking "is this movie over yet?"

Sex and the City- I liked the movie but people acted like the TV show was the next best thing to sliced bread.

Book-Breaking Dawn: I was extremely disappointed at the end of the book. It was a great amount of build up and anxiety and then just a huge letdown. I read all the Twilight books after Eclipse came out, so I was a later "fan", but all my friends who are die hard Twilight fans went on and on and on about how great the book was and to me it was like "okay I'm done writing, the end".

The Sopranos

Thank. You. What IS it about this movie that everyone loves? I thought it was ridiculously dumb.

And I might be alone on this one, but the most overrated movie: The Notebook. My roommate in college MADE me watch it, and even though she had seen it a dozen times before, she was balling at the end. I asked, "Is that IT?"

I wasn't impressed.

I don't like Lady GAGA either. She is just a fraud that kind of lacks talent.

I don't understand Lady Gaga either. I heard "Judas" for the first time the other week and all I can say is that it sounds exactly like a re-working of "Bad Romance"...including the chorus that doesn't fit with the song.

I also think 99.99% of all bands/artists played on MTV or top 40 radio are overrated but the worst offender ever is U2.

TV- Modern Family.....Not seeing the funny. Friends...King of Queens...George Lopez...never saw "it" with these shows either.

Books- Never Let Me Go. It was good, but nowhere near "the best book of the decade" as one critic called it.

Even though I liked it, I agree. There were so many elements that ended up being nothing because it WAS like she just got in a hurry to get it over with (if 600 pages really constitutes "a hurry"). I'd really like to read the *ORIGINAL* version that she gave her sister that was NOT a YA book and condensed New Moon-Breaking Dawn into one work. There might have been less "stuff" that ended up just being "stuff".

Agree with all of this. People especially look at me like I'm crazy since I'm big into musical theatre but don't watch Glee. I don't have time for that kind of commitment, I don't have a DVR, and it comes on during my Oratorio Singers rehearsal. I'm too busy BEING a musical theatre person to watch others do it.

Holy shit, yes. I was scratching my head after finishing it trying to figure out what everyone was on about.

My ultimate overrated group is the Dave Matthews Band. I DO NOT GET IT.
