Movies Audiences Love but Critics Hate

Hundreds of movies are released in the United States each year. To help navigate the deluge of films, filmgoers often turn to movie critics. We trust these connoisseurs to evaluate the many films available to us and identify those that will be most enjoyable.

While this arrangement generally works well for both parties, critics’ tastes do not always perfectly align with those of moviegoers. Audiences love goofy comedies, violent vigilante tales, sentimental movies about pets, and films with Transformers. Critics are often less enthusiastic about such flicks.

24/7 Wall St. has reviewed movie ratings of critics and general audiences on Rotten Tomatoes and audiences on Internet Movie Database (IMDb) to determine the films that have the greatest disparities between the opinions of critics and and those of audiences. These are the movies that audiences love but critics hate.
