Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes)

Why do fans love some Rotten films and hate some Fresh ones? What did critics make of a cult classic before it earned its cult status? In this weekly podcast, hosts Jacqueline Coley, Mark Ellis, and guests go deep and settle the score on some of the most beloved – and despised – movies and TV shows ever made, directly taking on the statement we hear from so many fans: “Rotten Tomatoes is wrong.”
