Rotten Movies We Love

Rotten Movies We Love

Hook. Wet Hot American Summer. Valley of the Dolls. There are some movies that defy traditional standards — films panned by critics that go on to become beloved classics and cult phenoms anyway.

In Rotten Movies We Love, the editors at Rotten Tomatoes – the leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews — explore and celebrate these underrated films. The book is comprised of short write-ups on “rotten” movies, focusing on why we love them, why they scored so low on RT’s infamous Tomatometer, fun stories about their making, and how they have became pop-culture touchstones. The book is broken into seven categories that hint at the reasoning found within – People’s Champs, Cult Leaders, Sequels Worth a Second Look and so on – and will also feature 15 essays by critics from Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and more, each about a rotten movie that they love. Punctuated with black-and-white film stills and punchy two-colour illustrations, the book is a fun romp through quirky, unusual film history.

Cherry 2000

Valley of the Dolls
