be over the top

(redirected from is over the top)

be over the top

To be or be seen as excessive. A massive birthday party with princesses and pony rides is a little over the top for a one-year-old, don't you think? She hardly knew my grandfather, so her bawling at the funeral was definitely over the top. You won't be able to manipulate her—she's really her own woman.
