Netflix has already released several strong in-house productions. However, some films categorized professional critics as real flops.
Yes, opinions about films can vary. Basically: Everyone should get an idea of a production for themselves. With the help of ratings, we can only determine what the majority of viewers think about certain works of art.
On the website Rotten Tomatoes users can, for example, publish their opinions on productions. Other users then find the average score of all ratings, which can range from 0 to 100 percent. There is also a second score that reflects the views of professional film critics. When it comes to these, some Netflix movies have done very poorly. The magazine GQ has summarized the individual ratings of the biggest flops. Below you will find the sad losers and their latest Rotten Tomatoes scores (as of July 19, 2021).

Netflix: Ten Movies with the Lowest Ratings
A star cast doesn’t mean a movie has to be a success. That proves among other things “The last thing he wanted” with Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck. Shortly after the thriller was released, the critics were not very enthusiastic about the production *. Nothing seems to have changed so far, because the film only comes in at 5 percent Rotten Tomatoes. In comparison, the audience was a little more gracious at 14 percent.
When it comes to the pros, “the last thing he wanted” is by no means the biggest flop. The movies „The Last Days of American Crime“, „The Ridiculous Six“ and “365 Days” performed very disappointingly with a whopping 0 percent. This is particularly astonishing when you consider that “365 Days” stayed in first place in the Netflix Top 10 for several weeks in 2020. So it shows that the opinions of the critics often do not coincide with the views of the general audience.
Also worth mentioning is the love story “The Kissing Booth” (15 percent), which, despite its popularity, hardly met with critical acclaim. Production received 56 percent from other Rotten Tomatoes users.
- „365 Days“, „The Last Days of American Crime“ and „The Ridiculous Six“ – 0 percent
- “The last thing he wanted” – 5 percent
- „The Open House“ – 13 percent
- „The Kissing Booth“ – 15 percent
- „Special Correspondents“ – 16 percent
- „Fatale Affair“ and „Polar“ – 19 percent
- „Coffee & Kareem“ – 21 percent
- „Hillbilly Elegy“ – 25 percent
- „Bright“ – 27 percent
- „The Silence“ and „The Last Summer“ – 29 percent
Note: As not all in-house productions were rated on Rotten Tomatoes, this is only a small selection of films with poor ratings. Works that Netflix did not produce itself, but whose exclusive rights were secured by the streaming service, also made it into the ranking. (soa) * tz.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
