Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving is all about.
On our third episode: One of the worst reviewed movies of the summer. (And given the general awfulness of the movies this summer, that’s really saying something.) It’s Nine Lives, starring Kevin Spacey as a guy who gets turned into a cat. This movie made just $20 million at the box office, and its Rotten Tomatoes score was still somehow lower than its domestic gross. That, uh, that’s really not very good. But it was good for us, as we put together this video.
This is our third Critics Are Raving trailer, but there are more on the way — if you’ve got a movie you’d like to see featured, let us know in the comments section below or send us a tweet or Facebook message.
