Sometimes the cast of an upcoming movie is so great, and the director and producer behind it so talented, that moviegoers have no chance of believing that the end result will be as wonderful as the pre-production news suggests.

And while Hollywood heavyweights rarely fail to deliver great movies to fans on a regular basis, it's important to keep your hopes low, because even the best-sounding movie can turn out to be a dud.

Moreover, sometimes even well-received movies turn out to be a total waste of time and talent, as critics who exaggerate the film's praise only make matters worse, alienating fans and forcing them to hate overhyped movies even more.

Here are 10 overhyped movies that just weren't worth it:

On the contrary, the critical acclaim for them simply didn't match their quality, and despite thousands of people assuring fans that the movies were great, they simply weren't.

Don't believe the hype, even if the Academy Awards and prominent critics provide it!
