    exaggerated movie

    Hi,

    I'd like to say that a certain movie took a small story and transformed it in a long and, at some moments, boring narrative. I don't mean that the movie was too dramatic, but only that the same story could be told in a quicker and simpler way.

    I'd say that it was a little ''exaggerated'', but I don't think this is the natural way to say it.

    Can I say that the it was simply ''too much'', please?
