27 Movies That Are 100% Good Even Though Most Movie Critics Think They're 100% Shitty

"55% on Rotten Tomatoes, 100% in my heart."

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which films they think were wrongfully deemed "bad movies" by elitist movie critics. Here are their 100% very, very good responses.

1. A Cinderella Story (2004) — 11% on Rotten Tomatoes

Warner Bros.

"Maybe it's because I used to love it as a kid, but damn I was heartbroken when I saw it only had 11% on Rotten Tomatoes! I made an account just to rate it myself!"


2. White Chicks (2004) — 15% on Rotten Tomatoes

Columbia Pictures

"The fact that it never received an Oscar nomination is one of the worst tragedies of the past 50 years."


"The biggest tragedy of our time."


3. From Justin to Kelly (2003) — 10% on Rotten Tomatoes

20th Century Fox / BuzzFeed

"The songs are such bops. Kelly and Anika are obviously the best in the movie. 'Madness' (their pool party duet) and Kelly's tie skirt were ICONIC!"


4. The Kissing Booth (2018) — 14% on Rotten Tomatoes


"So predictable and cheesy...yet so enticing and exciting?"


5. The Sweetest Thing (2002) — 26% on Rotten Tomatoes

Columbia Pictures

"Christina Applegate and Cameron Diaz go on a hilarious road trip (think Bridesmaids hilarious) to find a guy Cameron Diaz met briefly, but thinks she could fall in love with. Friendship, love, a lot of dancing in clubs, and Selma Blair fucking a purple elephant. Classic."


6. Grease 2 (1982) — 34% on Rotten Tomatoes

Paramount Pictures

"It’s empowering and perfectly corny. The songs are weird and catchy in their own way, and the dynamic between feisty, independent Michelle Pfeiffer and Sandy’s shy, intellectual cousin, Maxwell Caulfield, is refreshing!"


7. View From the Top (2003) — 14% on Rotten Tomatoes


"Gwyneth Paltrow training to be a stewardess, and Mark Ruffalo! I love it, such a great movie!"


8. Armageddon (1998) — 38% on Rotten Tomatoes

Touchstone Pictures

"It’s supposed to be this terrible movie that got crappy ratings, but I think it’s a masterpiece. It's a complete end-of-the-world disaster movie featuring sci-fi, romance, epic storytelling, sacrifice, a great father/daughter relationship, comedic moments, and an amazing soundtrack."


9. Monkeybone (2001) — 19% on Rotten Tomatoes

20th Century Fox

"I will defend it to my grave. Brendan Fraser at his peak, Whoopi Goldberg, and Chris Kattan playing a corpse. It's full of trippy, experimental visuals, and a really fun concept. It's like a nightmare embodied. Monkeybone only having 19% on Rotten Tomatoes is a travesty."


10. Grandma's Boy (2006) — 16% on Rotten Tomatoes

20th Century Fox

"So many people don't like it, but I think it's one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. It has great one-liners that my husband, my friends, and I have been quoting for over a decade."


11. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) — 20% on Rotten Tomatoes

Paramount Pictures

"It's the first time I got to see a woman be that amazing. She's educated and can kick ass all on her own. She's not just part of a team of men, or only there to fight the women villains. The accents are terrible and the storyline is laughable, but I love it."


12. Wild Child (2008) — 38% on Rotten Tomatoes

Universal Pictures

"I don't care what anyone says, Emma Roberts is great in that movie and it's just so much fun."

—Swift Alice, Facebook

13. Just Like Heaven (2005) — 55% on Rotten Tomatoes


"55% on Rotten Tomatoes, 100% in my heart."


14. Coyote Ugly (2000) — 23% on Rotten Tomatoes

Buena VIsta

"It's so witty and funny. It's my go-to when I'm having a bad day."


15. RV (2006) — 23% on Rotten Tomatoes

Red Wagon Entertainment

"RV starring Robin Williams, the iconic JoJo, and a bb Josh Hutcherson is one of my fave movies of all time!!! I've seen it so many times, but I still laugh at all the stupid one-liners. I've always wanted to go RV'ing because of this movie."


16. Spice World (1998) — 35% on Rotten Tomatoes

Columbia Pictures

"Spice World was a masterpiece. I was mesmerized by it and dreamed of having that bus! I still hear their boot camp march whenever I wear camo."


17. The Red Dawn (2012) — 13% on Rotten Tomatoes

Contra Film

"The Red Dawn remake with Josh Peck and Chris Hemsworth is a work of absolute art and I will fight anyone who disagrees."


18. Master of Disguise (2002) — 1% on Rotten Tomatoes

Columbia Pictures

"Master of Disguise is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Everything about it is fantastic despite its 1% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! I love the concept and the jokes are so funny."


19. Vampire Academy (2014) — 16% on Rotten Tomatoes

The Weinstein Company

"I refuse to believe it isn’t 'bad' on purpose. It’s a brilliant comedy that’s also a queer masterpiece about a vampire and her protector (they’re queer in my mind, at least)."


20. Bubble Boy (2001) — 30% on Rotten Tomatoes

Touchstone Pictures

"There was a time when serious actor Jake Gyllenhaal was seriously funny."


21. Crossroads (2002) — 14% on Rotten Tomatoes

Paramount Pictures

"A cinematic masterpiece with a great soundtrack!"


22. Showgirls (1999) — 22% on Rotten Tomatoes


"It's like Pretty Woman, but with dancing. And bad dialogue. The best cutthroat, rags-to-riches, Vegas showgirl movie with a naked Saved by the Bell star ever made."


23. Original Sin (2001) — 12% on Rotten Tomatoes


"People hated on this movie hard because they found it slow and melodramatic. I, however, am so here for this sexy tale of deception, betrayal, and love. The chemistry between the leads is electric and they push each other to give great performances."


24. The Pagemaster (1994) — 16% on Rotten Tomatoes

20th Century Fox

"Such a lovely story about a cowardly little boy who becomes brave through the power of books! It’s an amazing movie, so underrated, and the film that made me want to become a librarian, which I now am!"


25. Scooby-Doo (2002) — 30% on Rotten Tomatoes

Warner Bros.

"They are totally goofy, cheesy, and dated — but I loved them as a kid and they're so charming in their own quirky way."

—Esmé Stribling-Hough, Facebook

26. Bewitched (2005) — 25% on Rotten Tomatoes

Columbia Pictures

"It's wonderful and hilarious for fans of the old show."


27. Wet Hot American Summer (2001) — 33% on Rotten Tomatoes

USA Films

"A cinematic masterpiece. It features multiple notable celebrities before they made it big. I will always defend this movie against the haters."
