The problem for me is that when a movie becomes overrated I look at incredibly different than if it were some unknown movie with the exact same likable qualities. Crash (the Paul Haggis one) isn't a bad movie by any means, but since everyone and their mother started talking about it like the best movie ever (or even of the year) my view of it became harsher because I thought it was being overhyped. I start to like movies less when they become overhyped like that, unless I'm an enthusiastic supporter of it myself (e.g. Lost in Translation).
