In 2024, it has become almost impossible not to notice how the opinions of critics differ from the opinions of fans. The film professionals constantly praise the movies that the general public hates and belittle the ones that people actually like to see. However, this has been going on for a long time.

Rotten Tomatoes' freshness rating became redundant a long time ago, as dozens of movies that critics destroyed with their reviews actually became cult classics among fans, rendering the opinions of film critics completely meaningless.

Here are 15 Rotten Tomatoes flops that are now cult classics:

Yes, we were just as shocked as you to find out that such great movies as "Wet Hot American Summer," "The Boondock Saints," and "Bad Boys" were labeled worthless and boring by Rotten Tomatoes back in the day, as they are still being re-watched and praised decades after their release.

And the fact that major Hollywood studios actually work with critics to fix things they don't like in movies is even more confusing, since producers should pay more attention to fans, since they're the ones paying to see the movies on streaming services and in theaters.
