Can we have too much Dynamic Range?

Not wishing to be provocative since virtually everyone seems to think more DR is better, but can we have too much Dynamic Range? Can a sensor with a greater DR produce end up producing results that look 'flat' without post processing?

After all many photographers, especially landscape photographers, used to prefer certain films like Fuji Velvia and that had a quite limited DR.

Opinions?
