    Anybody else think Slumdog Millionaire (and Dev Patel) is over rated?

    Don't know what all the fuss was about...I thought Dev Patel was wooden in Skins, nothing has changed that view after watching this film, the kids out acted him easily... Agree or Disagree?!!

    Disagree. Fantastic film, loved it completely. Think Dev is completely different in Slumdog to Skins and did a great job. Love the story line, all the mini-stories.

    No. Thought it was a good film.

    totally agree


    good watchable film but never deserved all those awards

    very good film and was going to watch it when i first knew it was on, but after the adverts for it i just did not want to the advert put me right off

    Over rated, not as good as suppose to be.

    Definitely overated. I remember shouting at the tv last year when it kept getting all those undeserved Oscars.

    I really enjoyed the film thought it was fab, but have to agree that the kids were better actors.

    Don't get me wrong, i think its a pretty good movie just not deserving of the (over) hype!! And why is this a 'feelgood' movie? The only light hearted moments were the kids giving the guided tours and the end credit dancing!!

    Im not even sure I'd call it a great movie...Am I being harsh? Good movie yes but a GREAT movie like The Godfather, Its a Wonderful Life, Pulp Fiction or Shawshank Redemption? Umm...

    Good film, not as great as some ppl say. Was surprised it got so many awards, thought that The wrestler was a much better film

    It's totally over-rated tosh!

    yeah keep the oscars for quality films like The English Patient :whistling:

    Enjoyable film - kids were easily the best - very few Oscar winners live up to their awards.

    I watched it as TV mag gave it 5 stars.
    Managed to stay awake until the end but thought it was very slow and jumpy to start with.
    Didn't think any of the acting was spectatular - though I am a soap watcher so probably not the best judge!
    Took me a while to get into what was going on and found the small printed subtitles at the beginning (quite a lot of the beginning) hard to see (and i was wearing my glasses)
