Review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes has lived in infamy for a while now. The go-to site for an overview of what critics have to say about any given film or TV show, Rotten Tomatoes is less specific than other review aggregators like Metacritic because of its more subjective take to criticism: instead of taking the actual star rating or letter grade a critic assigns a film, they determine whether or not the review is positive or negative and assign a “fresh” or “rotten” rating accordingly.
Because of its incredibly nondescript approach to review aggregation, Rotten Tomatoes tends to have quite a few overreactions each year. Whether it be a much higher or a much lower review than what a movie actually deserves, one can be sure that a Rotten Tomatoes rating is likely pretty extreme in one direction or another. Let’s take a look at some of the most obvious examples of this throughout recent years.
