The stipulations for this were pretty simple. They had to have under 50 percent on rotten tomatoes. How could we have found every movie that has an under 50 percent review on rotten tomatoes you ask,? Well, I scrolled through them for ever. Like three different hour long scroll sessions. Some sincerely surprised me. Some I understand but I disagree. Here we go.

All Movies Made for Kids
Yeah, it's a workaround but I was getting legitimately angry while going down the list. Look at some of these titles... Heavy Weights, The Little Rascals, Mighty Ducks 1, 2, &3, Richie Rich, First Kid, The Flinstones, Blank Check. What the fuck? What little kids watched those movies and didn't enjoy them? These critics are a bunch of idiots and assholes. Judge a movie for the audience it is made for. This is one of the reviews for Blank Check.... "One of those smart-aleck kid adventures that manages to be entirely obnoxious with very little effort". That's like reviewing a horror movie and being like nah I didn't like this, it's one of those scary movies that are annoying and not scary." Go fuck yourselves critics. All kids movies should be reviewed and critiqued on rotten tomatoes by children.
Out Cold - 8%
Probably doesn't even deserve to be as high as 8%. Not a good movie, but a great movie. You feel me? More of a guilty pleasure because I loved it growing up. A little scared to watch it now because I'm sure I wont laugh much.
Murder of a Cat - 30%
I've never seen this movie. I have no idea what it's about. It's a fantastic title though. If it's a cat snuff film them maybe I understand the low rating. Otherwise this movie is reviewed dangerously low.
Night at the Roxbury - 11%
I agree with the critics! This movie sucks! That said, I will watch it every time it's on TV. I'll probably fall asleep at some point because the movie is basically 1 really long joke. Classic Sunday afternoon nap movie.
Year One - 15%
As a whole I can see why this got terrible reviews. It's pretty outlandish and incredibly dumb. But I am a sucker for Jack Black and Michael Cera. There are two scenes alone that make this movie way better than its rating. When Michael Cera is given a ridiculously big helmet and no sword. Big helmets/big hats are always funny. Put an adult hat on a baby and try not to smile. Then the second scene is when Michael Cera is tied to the wall upside down and pisses on his own face. I know its childish and dumb but when I firsty saw that scene I died laughing. My stomach hurt kinda stuff.
Little Rascals - 25%
Loved this movie as a kid, and still quote Buckwheat a bunch to this day. It's funny and teaches good lessons about friendship and not hating girls. What else do you want a kids movie to do? Not sure what the point is for a critic to give this a bad score. They know every single non-asshole who watches this movie will love it. Why be proven wrong?
Out Cold - 8%
The Replacements - 41%
I really like this movie. It's like 75% comedy and 75% drama, which I guess is 50% too much? Keanu Reeves belongs nowhere near a comedy because he's never laughed in his life. The plot is fairly predictable, but it's still a good underdog story. Always entertaining to watch a rag-tag group come together to beat the bad guys. The bad guys in this case are just other professional football players, which the movie really puts in a bad light!
Orange County - 46%
This one I'm a little shocked it's below 50 percent. Responsible for a top 10 clip in movie history.
"She was like "I hate my job, I'm gonna burn this mother down!" And I said "You better not... you better not!"
- "She said it was an electrical fire."
"It was. It was a total electrical fire."
Semi Pro - 21%
It's now clear to me that critics just don't understand comedies. They probably watch all movies while sitting on a broom handle so it hurts them to laugh. Nah, but still. Maybe I have a soft spot for WIll Ferrell, because I could watch him do anything. He's great in this movie; the bear fight scene is one of the best things he's ever done.
Ladder 49 - 40%
I saw this movie with my sister and my girlfriend freshman year of high school and I cried my fucking eyes out. Shocked this is rated so low. Really don't understand it. I think it's one of John Travolta best rolls and maybe his hardest because he has to play a normal dude. I think maybe this movie just made critics too sad, they were like fuck this movie for making me cry, hated it!
Jack - 17%
Reno 911: Miami - 34%
Oh that gatah dead.
Final Destination - 34%
First scary movie I ever saw. I walked around scared for weeks because according to this movie anything can kill you. You can be strangled by your own bathtub, or stabbed with your own butcher knife right before your house decides to blow up on you. No one is safe. But in all seriousness, this movie had a very original premise and injected some life into the stale teen slasher genre. All of the sequels got worse and worse, but are still entertaining to watch.
The Replacements - 41%
If this movie is so bad then how come I could turn on TBS right now and it would be on? Might be the most commonly played movie on cable in the last ten years. I actually think the studio made a deal with Turner that said they had to play The Replacements 70 times every year. I'm not complaining though. I watch it every time. It's got comedy. "You mean like bees on the field" and it's got heart. Miles and miles of heart.
Big Daddy - 40%
John Q - 23%
Jumanji - 48%
What the fuck? Sincerely never reading another critic's review of a movie again because this nonsense. Robin Williams just getting fucked over left and right. This movie is an epic. Never met someone who didn't like Jumanji. Well apparently half of the people who get paid to watch movies didn't like it. There's a sequel coming out next year with The Rock, which will hopefully make everyone realize how good the original is.
Big Daddy - 40%
Critics suck at comedies. When I was scrolling through I expected to see a ton of comedies on there and I did but this one is just plain wrong. I think people just had to be sick of Adam Sandler at this point. Boy where they in for a treat with his next 10 movies after this one. Big Daddy is great. The court house scene alone is hilarious. My favorite line ever is after he ruins the surprise. It's such a non joke but makes me giggle like crazy. "We ruined the good surprise on you" - "alright". Cracks me up. Just the way he says it, "alright crazy, calm down, who cares".
Saving Silverman - 18%
This was easily my favorite comedy during my formative years. All of my friends and I could quote every line. If I meet you tomorrow and you can quote this movie, you're instantly my best friend. I'm not surprised to see it rated this low because critics are morons and this movie is genius.
