Movies critics loved, audiences hated

Five Things Movie Critics Won't Tell You

Usually, we rely on film critics to sort garbage movies from cinematic gems. That's what they're trained to do, after all. Audience members trust critics to highlight the best movies out there, but sometimes critics and crowds disagree, and there are times when critics enjoy films considerably more than the audience. Perhaps there are things a critic's eye catches that the rest of the population missed.

Using data from Rotten Tomatoes, PrettyFamous calculated which movies have the largest disparity in critic versus audience ratings. To be considered, a movie had to receive a Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score of 60 or lower and a Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score (based on critic ratings) of at least 80.
