The Princess Bride
Yup. First and only one I thought of.
So I guess it doesn't qualify anymore.

Obvious choices would have to include: Apocalypse Now, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, A Clockwork Orange, Annie Hall, Trainspotting.
Just to clarify. The films I listed here are not films that I consider to have no artistic merit etc. they are all films that my overall reaction came down to "I don't like this film because......"

I don't dislike these films, but neither do I love them as much as most folks I know.

La Strada (as discussed in this thread).
Dumbo (as discussed here)
Not in the same iconoclastic league as the above, but also worth noting:
Babe: Pig in the City

Black Hawk Down
I will stand beside you and keep you company in the cold.
And as for, Dead Poet's Society... well, I have very mixed feelings about that one.
And I hope I find some more copmany in my frustrations with Up in the Air, but so far I'm in a very lonely place.

Terms of Adul, uh, Endearment
Just watched this awful claptrap with my wife and was totally flummoxed. Who likes this film? Seriously.

I'd like to point out that I win, in the sense of being most out of step with mankind at large.
I find The Wizard of Oz extremely grating. First and foremost because of the performances, which are all completely bizarre. It starts, I think, with Judy Garland, who at 17 is playing a character who was about 8 in the original story. Consequently, there is no way she can make her part believable (or even recognizable as a human being) and doesn't even try. Everyone else, having actual fantasy characters to play, feels they have to go beyond her, and the result is a veritable competition in wild, over-the-top, inauthentic, camp "acting". The genre of music is also utterly without appeal to me. Finally, it concludes with the painful it-was-all-a-dream ending (which was not in the book). I know the rest of mankind loves the movie, but I have never for a moment understood why.
