It depends how much is to much, if its about one half a quart there should be no problem most cases even up to a full quart too much wont cause harm. But if you have a quart or more too much i would sudjest locating the drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan and draining some. Worst case senerio you could blow the seals front or rear main, or simply cause a gasket to leak.
