I think history was made this weekend… Serious, history!
This weekend the worst reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history opened in theaters. The WORST reviewed movie… Think about that for a second….
Grown Ups 2 one of the most reviled films of the year got 7%
That’s really damn horrible…
Scary Movie 5, it got 4%! That’s really abysmal…
But the movie that opened this weekend… It got 2%… 2% that’s not just terrible it’s almost unwatchable!
The film I’m talking about… Getaway starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez!
Here are some choice select cuts from critics about this film…
“The damage to your brain while watching it is incalculable.”
Peter Travers – Rolling Stone
“Apparently paid by the word, Gomez infuses her never-ending word bubbles with all the emotion and gravitas of a tweet declaring her disdain for pumpkin-flavored lattes.”
Rob Hunter – Film School Rejects
“Selena Gomez is so laughably bad that Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs is only the second-most-awkward performance by a former Disney star this week.”
Kevin Carr – 7M Pictures
“If you’ve always wanted to see Ethan Hawke bicker with a teenage girl for 90 minutes, this is your chance.”
Eric Snider – www.ericsnider.com
“You’ve probably seen this movie before, watching a child play with his toy Hot Wheels cars after eating multiple bowls of sugary breakfast cereal.”
Peter Hartlaub – San Francisco Chronicle
“Even in the realm of really bad movies, Getaway is a special kind of awful.”
Kurt Loder – Reason Online
And I say damn… I’m totally renting this shit!
To give you even a better barometer of how bad this movie is… Marky Mark’s The Happening… It got 17%
