Rotten Movies We Love : Cult Classics, Underrated Gems, and Films So Bad They're Good Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Hook. Wet Hot American Summer. Valley of the Dolls. There are some movies that defy traditional standards -- films panned by critics that go on to become beloved classics and cult phenoms anyway. In Rotten Movies We Love, the editors at Rotten Tomatoes - the leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews -- explore and celebrate these underrated films.

The book is comprised of short write-ups on "rotten" movies, focusing on why we love them, why they scored so low on RT's infamous Tomatometer, fun stories about their making, and how they have became pop-culture touchstones.

The book is broken into seven categories that hint at the reasoning found within - People's Champs, Cult Leaders, Sequels Worth a Second Look and so on - and will also feature 15 essays by critics from Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and more, each about a rotten movie that they love.

Punctuated with black-and-white film stills and punchy two-colour illustrations, the book is a fun romp through quirky, unusual film history. Featured films include:Cherry 2000Die Hard with a VengeanceBad BoysValley of the DollsFirst Wives ClubSpace JamThe WizThe Greatest ShowmanBurlesqueThe HolidayHocus PocusXanadu
