Don't think so. It makes the story of the old Broly movie better while puts it in the canon without big incoherences or troubles.
You really think a mistake (namely years) in time placement is not a "big incoherences or troubles"?
Are you talking about they adapt the Dragon Ball Minus manga to the animation? Witch actually changed Goku's age if I'm not wrong.

Well, Baby Goku living with Old Grandpa Gohan was never something in the manga if I'm not wrong.

I'm talking about the "41 years ago" subtitle that appears right in the beginning of the movie, which is completely wrong. Are you okay with that? Do you really think that doesn't cause lots of problems?

Now that you talked about it, I need to re-watch to know.
But an anime retelling of the story could fix it, I think.

Or destroys even more, just like there is an official information stating that the retellings did start six months after Majin Buu saga.

Anyway, time placement is a big deal, we've been lucky that even with new information introduced these days, we could round it up to work (mostly...). However, that "41 years ago" is completely off and cannot be considered by any means, unless, of course, you don't mind following a totally screwed timeline.

Imo calling something 'overrated' is such a lazy, bottom of the barrel criticism. Which shows your dislike of a product comes from nothing that could be in the form of constructive criticism, it's just that you have a problem with other people enjoying things.

As for this thread, no it is not. DBS Broly is one of the greatest things to happen to the Dragon Ball franchise in a long time, it's an entertaining, spectacularly animated feast for the eyes with a lot of replay value.

I loved the movie but I have a question for everyone: why does it matter if something is 'overrated'?

I guess the idea is that a person may not like something that other people mostly like, so to them it's overrated. Like The Dark Knight is considered one of the best comic book films of all time but some people disagree and see it as overrated. But I think saying something is overrated is a bit cheap of a criticism if it has nothing to back it up beyond personal gripes, some things are genuinely bad that people like because it's "popular" and the good thing is that there are people who give good criticism as to why that "popular" thing is bad. I really loved the Super Broly film but I would understand why someone may think it's not that great and I also have addressed some criticisms people had on the story like some people thinking the prelude in the past was a waste of time but I put why the past section of the film is actually one of the most important and main themes of the film and without it the theme wouldn't come across.

Saying something is "overrated" is basically saying: "Stop liking this thing more than me!"
