Like Father - 49%
Starring Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammar, this rom-com follows an estranged father and daughter as they go on a cruise together after she was left at the altar. Critics considered it a cliche mess that did nothing to enlighten the genre.
Mascots - 49%
Written, directed, and starring Christopher Guest, this comedy takes place in the world of competitive mascots as they vie for “The Golden Fluffy,” a prestigious and coveted award. Critics called it boring, barely funny, and not meeting the quality of Guest’s former work.
War Machine - 49%
Brad Pitt stars in this satirical comedy about the American military involvement in Afghanistan, producing a biting perspective from the men leading it. Critics were mostly unhappy with its uneven storytelling dulling the bite of the satire.
The Most Hated Woman in America - 47%
This true crime biopic about the disappearance of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the founder of “American Atheists” and culture war firebrand, focuses on her rise and fall. Critics claim the movie succeeds in communicating the weight of the character but doesn’t know how to tell the story.
The Devil and Father Amorth - 46%
A documentary about exorcism by the same director that filmed The Exorcist, William Friedkin, this film follows Father Amorth, a Catholic priest commissioned to exorcise demons from people. Many critics considered it bloated, boring, and amateur, which is sad considering Friedkin was once a celebrated auteur.
