Question of the Day

I can't believe this, but I honestly don't think we've ever done this question before...

What's the most overrated film of all time?

I know there are probably people who will forever question my judgment after this, but I have to go with The Godfather. I saw it for the first time a couple of years ago, and, although I didn't think it was a terrible film or anything, it really, really, really didn't live up to the hype.

Not helped, I admit, by my having seen about three decades of parodies and bad Brando impersonations prior to first viewing. But still.
