There is. Extraneous comments make it much harder to find the useful ones. Heck, they make it harder to find the bloody code! Believe me, if you've ever seen overcommented code, you *know* comments can be harmful.
Also, there's always the case of the misleading comment, when the comment says something *other* than what a segment of code is supposed to do or does.
