Pretty much any Adam Sandler movie. I think that a lot of his movies are hilarious, while the movie critics seem to hate them. I also like Phantom Menace. Jar Jar isn't really that annoying..

And while I don't think it's hated, The Last Unicorn is a fantastic animated movie from the 80's that doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Have you read the comic adaptation published by IDW? The art is some of the most gorgeous I've ever seen.

I really liked Signs. Even if, admittedly, it didn't make much sense for H2O-intolerant aliens to invade a planet that has water covering 70% of its surface.

Signs is an amazing example of great build-up leading to a horrible conclusion.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Signs, Star Trek, and 2001 are examples of movies everyone dislikes?

I probably would have liked the Star Wars prequels more if they didn't have the Star Wars name on them. They were so unlike the original movies (and blatantly disregarded a lot of established, much more interesting storylines for the sake of Lucas' "vision") that I really felt let down by what was done with them. As stand-alone movies they're OK, but nothing that special. As Star Wars movies, they're crap (although they got a bit better by Revenge of the Sith).

One I like is Waterworld. It got absolutely panned, but in hindsight it wasn't THAT bad. I think people got caught up with how much money it cost etc., but if you just look at it as a bit of light entertainment I think it stands up pretty well. Sure, it's a bit predictable, has some hammy acting and the like, but I think it's got some of the best action scenes ever filmed (the atoll scene at the start is incredible) which make it well worth watching. In addition, it has some cool (although perhaps underdeveloped) ideas about society in such a world.

If you haven't seen it, I'd highly recommend it. Just expect more Escape from LA and less Schindler's List.

@ImmatureUnsure i don't see how '2001: A Space Odyssey' could be considered a movie that most people hate. it's considered a classic and has an enormous following.

Show it to anyone in this generation where movies require big-budget effects and action in every scene and they'll start whining about how it's too long. I guess it only appeals to die-hard movie fans. While we are at it, Alien is another example.

2001 is an odd duck — it's one of those movies that most people (who have any sense) will agree is a great film, while at the same time many of those same people don't necessarily enjoy it.
Personally, i love it.

It's funny you should mention that.
The majority of my friends absolutely love that movie but I personally can't stand it.

Welcome to the internet!

This happens off the internet too, in case you haven't seen it.
Star Wars fans in general tend to lose it when people mention Jar Jar.

I just went to Disneyland last year and got to go on the new Star Tours (best ride ever) and guess what happened when we went to Naboo? The moment we saw Jar Jar happily waving to us after going underwater, people started booing and yelling "you don't belong in SW!" etc. I acually shot back with "Jar Jar rules!" Then when you go into the gift shop afterwards I saw some guys giggling at the fact that one pack of figures required you to get a Jar Jar one.

Watching any Youtube recording of Star Tours with Naboo being one of the destinations will always guarantee you hearing guys booing or saying sommething like "Hit him!"

Its depressingly childish.

I still think Monsters Inc. is a vastly overrated film, whereas A Bug's Life is underrated.

I agree about Bug's Life; I think it was more deserving of a sequel than Cars (and Incredibles), I still remember that teaser for it were they made it seem like Bug's Life 2 was being made, instead it was Car$$$. Pixar trolled us big time.

But with Monster's Inc. it seems like a forgotten movie compared to Pixar's more recent stuff. No one talked about it ever again after "that one movie with that clownfish getting lost."

I'm looking forward to Monster's University.

People hated that? I just thought no one saw it because of a few bad early reviews. I thought it was okay, but the second half made me a bit uneasy. I have a feeling they changed too much from the source material.
