Top 10 Good Movies with Bad Rotten Tomatoes Scores

There are times when critics would bash on a movie that isn't even that bad. So I created this list.

The Top Ten

1 Suicide Squad

My mom likes it, and the soundtrack is good, but the movie is meh, deserves between a 55-64 - Maddox121

Suicide Squad was trash. Choppy and bad editing, awful villain, same old cliche "portal in the sky" bull, barely any Joker, the action sequences were iffy, and the soundtrack, which is great, but doesn't fit well at all in some scenes. It seemed like DC tried way too hard to make it not so dark and gritty as Batman v Superman that it seems the movie doesn't know what it wants to be. While I think 26% is a little too low, it still doesn't deserve to be on this list, let alone #1 - AlphonsoRichardson

I liked the movie a lot! It had it all: action, fantasy, comedy, romance, horror, good guys and good girls, BAD GUYS AND BAD GIRLS... Some people say it's a trash, but that's just someone's opinion. Critics are just a people who share there opinion about something. Let me ask:,If the movie was so disappointing, how could it be so popular and on the list of 100 fastest box office grossing movies? " Of course it was great for someone who is terribly bored of watching superheroes all the time.,If you don't like there story, write yours." That is my opinion.

27% is not good enough, this deserves maybe 73%

2 Home Alone

The Home Alone movies are great, the sequels aren't that good though. - Catacorn

This had a 62

My score: 98% - MrCoolC

The first two shouldn't deserve a low rating. The first should be higher than 62%. And the second shouldn't deserve a 30%. It should be certified fresh. However, the last three deserve the rotten rating.

3 Madagascar

This innocent film is better than The Wild. The Wild copies this film and that is why people even me like this film. - Badabooo2

Has a good story for 1 and 2. 3 lost it but still better than most for colorful. Sure it's not Pinar, but pixar had some recent stinkers. Better than shrek.

My score: 45% - iliekpiez

This Is A Really Funny Movie - VideoGamefan5

4 Space Jam

Drop everything! They're making a sequel. They even got LeBron James for the main role.

This movie is really weird yet so likable at the same time.

This is my favorite anime - Jackamalio

No this movie was a boring Loony Tunes movie!

5 Forrest Gump

Agreed, it should at least have a 95% on RT.

It has a 72 that's not too bad

Why just why is Forrest Gump on this list just WHY!

72%!? Get that weak stuff outta here. This is one of the best movie is ever made. - Jackamalio

6 Brother Bear

What the hell rotten lot. Brother Bear and Atlantis are lower than home on the range. those movies should have gotten 88 or 100 % because they are great. home on the range should have 20%.

This movie is great

I never understood why the critics hated this movie. The animation was beautiful, the story was fantastic with some good lessons for the fun characters to learn, and it's something the whole family can enjoy. It's everything you would expect from a Disney movie, which is why I can't understand why this would be rated so low at the same level as Home on the Range and Chicken Little.

I didn't even know this had a low rating what. I've only seen this movie one time but it's absolutely amazing. It gave me the feels and I cried so much

7 Hook

Boring, joyless film. It deserves its critical reputation. - truckturner

So it has about 30% at RT, when it should be about 90%. - MrCoolC

My score: 92% - iliekpiez

Are you kidding me? This movie is amazing!

8 Transformers

My score: 80%
This and the third one are the best Transformers movie, the rest are mediocre or worse. - MrCoolC

Update: Include Bumblebee as well, I said this before it came out. - MrCoolC

Nope It’s Still awful.

My score: 0% - iliekpiez

I loved this movie! This is the only movie in the franchise that is even worth watching. All the others painfully lag behind the original.

9 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

My score: 76% - iliekpiez

Agreed - iliekpiez

Score: 54%
Keep in mind, if it wasn't for this movie, they wouldn't have updated the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland to include Captain Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones. Now, I know this sequel is a step back from the first Pirates film, but that doesn't mean it's particularly bad. It's still pretty fun. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is still enjoyable and it has some entertaining battle scenes. There's an entire sword fight that takes place on a giant roll away wheel. That is very awesome! There's going to be a 5th movie next year and with the Rotten Tomatoes scores for these movie getting lower with each movie, I wonder how it will end up. Dead Man's Chest is not as good as the first movie but still a good time. It is definitely a pirate's life for me. - MegaSoulhero

One of the most iconic movie franchises even I hope it never ends

10 Man of Steel

My score: 46% - iliekpiez

I genuinely think this is one of the greatest super hero films ever made

Its not an amazing film but its at least a 74% - iamBATMAN

This was a great movie.


The Contenders

11 Spaceballs

My score: 100%

I am your father's cousin's uncle's former roommate. And your schwartz is as big as mine. Now lets see how you handle it. enough said. - MattAffterburner

RT Score: 54%
My Score: 92% - BlazingParasol

This is probably one of the funniest spoof movies I've seen! - Phillip873

12 Tron: Legacy

This is a goodass film.

Score: 51%
I honestly don't know why people hate this film. There's probably a good reason but I just don't see it. I'm not saying this is one of the best Disney films ever but I still enjoyed it. The original Tron wasn't really that good and yet that one got a 70%. I thought the characters in this one were really likeable. Olivia Wilde as Quorra was my favorite thing in the movie. Jeff Bridges was pretty good too. But the thing that absolutely blew my mind was how they used CGI to make Jeff Bridges look young. I have never seen anything like it before at the time! They did the same thing with Michael Douglas in Ant-Man and Robert Downey Jr. in Captain America: Civil War. This is such a visually entertaining movie and definitely worth watching! - MegaSoulhero

I Agree - VideoGamefan5

There's a reason that this film wasn't liked by critics: it was boring & as clichéd as it comes. I'm not saying the original Tron was much good either, but at least it had the novelty of innovating special effects and gave film some iconic moments, mainly the light cycles. This doesn't innovate, and beyond a great soundtrack by Daft Punk, it doesn't give you very much. - Mrveteran

13 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Rotten tomatoes needs to get off their high horse and realize they are bad critics

This film based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name is an ode to an American legend and does the book justice. There is no underlying plot besides proving that America is a superfluous absurdity. Excessive exaggerations of the American Dream that most likely died somewhere between the Vietnam war and the present day. This is a wonderful film all-in-all. I think it exposes the human condition for what it is which is a comical absurdity and provides us with an honest and fantastic truth that we have no actual idea why we are here on planet earth.

A brilliant movie that, at different times, captures the wild savagery of Gonzo journalism and the poetic beauty of Thompsons words. Excellently acted by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro, this movie is hilarious, sometimes disturbing, thought provoking and always entertaining.

I think this movie is OK. I can see why some love it and others hate it. - Mrveteran

14 Oliver & Company

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 44%
My score: 84%
(This was my childhood) - BlazingParasol

This is such a cute movie. You can't go wrong with Disney.

Disney1994 will go apesh- when he sees the percentage for this movie. - KennyRulz244444

15 A Goofy Movie

This movie is so good, it should've had a 70% - jameshoward

I thought it was funny

16 Basic Instinct

Douglas was great. I've had better hookers than Stone.

Litty movie. - BeatlesFan1964

17 The Angry Birds Movie

I waited 7 years for this. It was executed well.

The second one got a much more deserving score its what the first one should have gotten. This movie was very funny. - Dvafan2

I like how this movie came out after Angry Birds was pretty much forgotten. I mean, seriously? They turned a decent app (which is dead) into a God-awful movie.

I wanted to like it, but it's your modern slew of "try to appeal to the young teen market", and it came out THREE YEARS after no one cared about the app. - Swellow

18 Man on Fire

Densely at his best. Definitely a must see.

Stupid movie with stupid actors.

19 Armageddon

It did seem like an okay film for Michael Bay. 7.4/10

20 The Lost World - Jurassic Park
21 Minions

Kinda not so good but still cool

No Rude Comments

Nah it deserves it - Phillip873

Minions is pretty funny which means it should of got 86

22 Home Alone 2: Lost In New York
23 Saw

There are only 4 good movies and 4 witch ar torture porn

Saw was only intended to pe a trilogy, which is why 4-7 are more torture porn. In my opinion, 1,2,3 and Jigsaw are the only good ones.

The only good movie of the entire franchise, and has a low score, what? - Ale9991

Score: 48%
I remember when I "saw" this movie. Lol. Do I even need to explain why the critics are wrong on this one? It's saw! One of the best horror movies ever! It's well acted, well scripted, and absolutely horrifying! This movie just keeps you guessing who the killer is. To this day, I still see Jigsaw in my nightmares! If there was any horror movie worth watching, it would be Saw! And maybe Conjuring 2. - MegaSoulhero

24 The Fox and the Hound

I Want To Like This Movie, But Disney1994 Ruined This Movie For Me - VideoGamefan5

It's at a 69%, that's not bad.

I really don't like this film anymore. It just really boring now

My new score is a 50% - AlphaQ

25 Footloose

Should be number one.

I agree this movie should have not been rated in the 50s which the remake got a higher score but the remake of footlose is actually bad and worse compared to the original and is overrated. I'm finally glad it on this list.

26 The Sandlot

Silly, but brilliant! Nothing can top it for inspiring little ones!

A masterpiece! Screw what the critics say!

I remember my class watching this in 5th grade, it was weird but nonetheless I enjoyed it! - Catacorn

27 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Rotten Tomatoes critics are idiotic. This film is what made Jim Carrey's career and its story and cast are awesome! Plus Cannibal Corpse got great exposure from this movie. Hands down, this movie is one of the best comedys of all time.

This movie is awesome 8/10 - AlphaQ

Score: 45% - phillysports

28 Top Gun
29 Big Daddy

One Of Sandler's Better Movies - VideoGamefan5

30 Miss Congeniality

I don't understand it. At all. This has been one of my favorite movies for a long time, all the jokes are spot on. And the characters are great too.

31 Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
32 Power Rangers (2017)

Definitely! - VideoGamefan5

33 Gordy

I'm guessing Disney1994 added this.

This movie deserved the bad ratings. - KennyRulz244444

34 Friday the 13th
35 All Stars

This film isn't very popular, only got 56%. But I thought it was decent. - jameshoward

36 Chicken Little

Chicken little is pretty bad actually

I Didn't Really See"Chicken Little"in Theaters or On DVD because I thought the Trailer was Way to Scary Looking! I Was About 5 When it Came Out.So I Didn't See it and I Pretty Much Avoided It.And I Still Do Today.It Was Also REALLY Ugly Looking!

37 The Aristocats
38 The Fast and the Furious
39 Girl, Interrupted
40 My Little Pony: The Movie (2017)

I get how this movie ain't for everyone, but it's far from terrible. A lot of people I talk to really like it, myself included. All that this film wanted to be is a simple, but yet fun and silly flick for fans of the show and children alike to enjoy. This movie isn't trying to top other movies like Star Wars, Aliens, The Shining, or other big pop culture movies like those, it wants to be very enjoyable for what it is. And if that is what it wishes to be, then let it be.

Sadly, The Score Keeps Dropping RAPIDLY - JPK

I'm gonna get maced here - Neonco31

41 Barnyard

Nah, it deserved it.

42 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

40%! This is an outrage! And keep in mind, this is the highest rated TMNT movie on the site. - 445956

43 Cars 2

No, it's definitely Rotten. Watch MrEnter's review of this POS.

My score: 20% - MrCoolC

The first rotten rating from Pixar.

39%?!?! Seriously Rotten Tomatoes. So dumb!
