Thanks to the internet and, well, freedom of speech, everyone's a film critic these days which means that there's often a discrepancy between what the public and the professionals think of a movie.

This is gleefully apparent on Netflix, where user reviews allow us all to give our two cents on whichever movie we've just been streaming. Here are some of the finest examples of people who just didn't get on with some classic films...

Some Like It Hot

"Broad, dumb, dull, joyless, without a single joke you don't see coming as soon as it's set up. If I'd seen this in 1959, maybe I'd love it. On the other hand maybe I'd be dead."

Good Will Hunting

"I was truely looking forward to seeing this movie, and although wrestled with the intense strong language, simply this became too much of a problem and quite franctly spoilt the movies' beauty. Omit the language and this movie would be quite something"

Annie Hall

"Stupid pointless fuilm, one of the worst I've seen, why some folks give it more then one star is beyond me"

____________________________________________________________

Mean Streets

"Good acting but where was the plot???? Nothing really happened. This was the longest movie to explain nothing, in terms of a story, I have ever seen. It starts off with a guy with a girlfriend, he's surrounded by idiotic friends, then the movie ends. There are exciting scenes and dramatic scenes, but none of them move towards any kind of plot point and none are important."

Fargo

"The worst movie that I have ever seen. Fargo people are not that stupid and the language in this movie is terrible. Continually using the "F" word and too much violence"

____________________________________________________________

The Bicycle Thief

"OMG! This movie sucked the big one!! What a colossal waste of time! Out of thousands of bikes left unattended and unsecured his is the only one thats stolen and he spends the entire length of the film trying to find it. Can yo say BORING!! I dont know what everyone who gave it 3-4 stars saw but this was worse than watching water boil!"

There Will Be Blood

"So bad. So long. So boring. If you enjoyed this film you would also enjoy being dead."

____________________________________________________________

The Usual Suspects

"The most disgusting waste of electricty I have seen in a long, long time. No sense at all!!!!!!!"

____________________________________________________________

The English Patient

"Slow, slow, slow. Did I mention that this movie is slow? Also boring. No man should watch this movie unless he is with a highly desirable woman and has no way to get out of watching it. Basically a movie about cheating on your spouse but in a really slow and boring manner. Three hours of life that I am not getting back."

____________________________________________________________

Amour

"Haneke is a cinematic sadist. Check out his filmography for proof. This may be "art" to some, but I for one am not a willing victim."

____________________________________________________________

Carrie

"Trashy and hard to follow. But it was the first. A boy would only see this as the worst case of a bad period. Other than that there was not much there to get."

____________________________________________________________

Midnight Cowboy

"Ok reality check. What was awful about his movie? Everything. Bad acting, stupid script, rediculous wardrobe, sound track was painful to hear. Was hard to figure out who the bigger idiot was, Dustin Hoffman with his nasal whine, or "Joe Buck" with that idiotic grin. Watched the last 90 min fast foreward because I couldn't stand it any more. The only meaning behind this movie is how bad movies can be. See more intelligent dialogue when my kids watch Sponge Bob!"

An American Werewolf In London

"Stupid! Really that's all you can say about this movie is "stupid." Since I'm forced to say more, this also acurately describe this flim - A waste of time. Hokey. Poorly acted. Nonsensical plot. Gratuitous. Also in the DVD extras, the Director Landis acts like an immature 10 year old who has discovered that eating his boogers makes his sister vomit and who finds it the acme of entertainment. Again, Stupid!"
