*Rotten Tomatoes Critics Ratings
At last we will reveal ourselves....
Turns out Jar Jar was actually a Sith Lord so sneaky that he isn't even exposed in the movies and GL puts him in there to play with your minds to say "this isn't the star wars movie I'm looking for".
Jar Jar, does such a great job he eventually proposes the galactic senate hand over all power to his buddy The Emperor, and we all thought its because he is a fish. No no, he Sith'ed us all baby....
Its a great movie...!
Jar Jar Rocks!
Ok - Eddie.
The post apocalyptic movie that Costner got right! I'm a sucker for these type of films plus Tom Petty is in it.
Godfather Part II
"Part II's dialogue often sounds like cartoon captions...its insights are fairly lame"

I'm taking a tip from another poster and using Rotten Tomatoes critics' average rating as a measure of fresh/rotten:
Uncle Buck: 5.9/10
Blues Brothers: 7.1/10
American Graffiti: 8.4/10
Two Lane Blacktop: 7.8/10
So only Uncle Buck could be said to have been failed by the critics.
Killer tire on the lose inbtye desert, what's not to love?
Rotten Tomatoes - I have had pretty good luck with movies where the audience rating is significantly higher than the critics. You get the opposite situation with "art house" films that are all technique or shock with little narrative or actual entertainment value.
I guess some critics get so jaded after watching 500 movies a year that it takes a big jolt of originality to grab their attention. Folks that see a dozen films a year might be interested in a different experience.
Yes, when the audience likes it much more than the critics, I assume it's low brow.
Example: Happy Gilmore.
Critics: 60% liked it (5.6/10. 32 fresh/21 rotten)
Critics Consensus: Those who enjoy Adam Sandler's schtick will find plenty to love in this gleefully juvenile take on professional golf; those who don't, however, will find it unfunny and forgettable.
Audience: 85% liked it, 3.7/5
Okay, I have a bone to pick with Adam Sandler movies. There are awful.
Watching Sandler get his *ss kicked by Bob Barker was kinda fun... But generally, I'd have to agree with your assessment.
I had no idea some of these got bad reviews.
But yeah, Uncle Buck was likeable and Chronicles of Riddick is one of my favorites.
Another vote for Waterworld. Loved it!
Another emphatic vote for Moonwalkers. Can't remember the last time I had that much fun at a movie.
And, I loved Heaven's Gate.
Loved 'Space Conan' as well. My favorite of the Riddick series, I wished they had continued the story line for the third film.
I also loved the Dungeons and Dragon movie, most seem to hate it.
Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure......Bwaaaaaaa!
The critics liked it: Rotten Tomatoes 38 fresh, 5 rotten.
Dang, beat me to it. This is the first one that came to my mind and I can't stand Kevin Costner. Post-apocalyptic movies are my favorite genre. Waterworld was a huge disappointment though.
Hudson Hawk was my first thought, too. I love that movie- I must have watched it 100 times back in college. I don't know why it gets so much hate. I mean, it's not meant to be serious cinema.
Indeed, Adam Sandler movies are awful.
I love watching Happy Gilmore, thus, it's my pick for this thread.
