    I'll get things started.

    The Christopher Nolan Batman films. 3 dreary hours of cheesy dialogue. I just find them rather boring. In the newest one Michael Caine (Alfred) gives away the ending to the film right at the beginning. Although I do suppose the scene in the second one where the Joker tries to blow up the hospital was pretty funny.

    Napoleon Dynamite too, just not funny at all

    Agreed on Napoleon Dynamite, I can't for the life of me figure out what makes that film so well liked.

    Something about the awkwardness of it is just really funny to some people (myself included). It is easy to see how, to many people, the film could lack anything engaging at all but I suppose that is the nature of the whole enterprise really.

    To answer the OP: the film I liked least that everyone else seems to love is The King's Speech. I stopped watching half way through which is pretty rare but I will definitely give it another try at some point just in case. Lol.

    Inglorious Basterds. So dull.

    EDIT: It's funny, every time you agree with someone by repping them, you make their post less relevant to the thread; every time you neg someone because you like the film they mentioned, you validate their post. This thread is about films you dislike that everyone else likes - if your suggestion gets more agreement than disagreement, you've just named a film that everyone dislikes and your post is irrelevant.

    I've still not seen avatar. Seems massively overrated and so far as of yet no one has convinced to watch it.

    I just read the tittle of this thread as having something to do with 'flimsy cat poo'. I need glasses.

    I have nothing else to add.

    Completely agree.

    And I'll add Superbad to that.

    is this guy actually pointing out flaws in a movie where toys are in fact real living things? Really?

    Oh my that film made me mad. I asked if I could have my money back half way though, couldn't 'if I just didn't like the film'. It wasn't a bloody film it was a pile of trash.

    I also agree on Napoleon Dynamite, I remember being in a room full of people laughing at it just thinking - why is this funny?

    Inception, Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Avatar, Avengers, All 8 of the HP films (yeah I said it *****es), I Am Legend and The Pursuit of Happyness.

    The films mentioned above (expect probably Avatar and the Avengers) aren't 'poo' per se but just very overrated. There are so much more poignant, thought provoking and breathtaking films out there that are virtually unheard of.

    Edit: I've pretty much said what everyone else has said so why I'm a getting a cascade of negs? Have I personally victimised you?
