Gotti And 5 (Older) 0% Films On Rotten Tomatoes
You’ve probably heard the news. John Travolta’s new film Gotti has scored 0% approval on the review-aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. The score is based on 23 reviews (so far) and it didn’t do well on the box office too. The movie earned just over 1 million dollars, on a 10 million dollars budget.
Gotti is biopic/crime drama about the life of New York City Gambino crime family mobster John Gotti and his son, and it also stars Kelly Preston, Stacy Keach and Victor Gojcaj. Gotti was panned by critics, who lamented the writing, aesthetics and performances, although the makeup and Travolta did receive some praise. The film chronicles the three-decade reign of crime boss John Gotti, and his rise as the head of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City, along with his son, John Jr., and his loyal wife.
Unfortunately, Gotti is not the only movie with 0% approval on RT, and this is Travolta’s second film on this unfavorable list, after the 1993 comedy Look Who’s Talking Now! Sure, Travolta has not been the best shape for years now, and his picks on future projects also have not been so great, but 0% is just shameful. But what about the rest? The other movies that have 0% on RT? Who are they?
Well, here’s a brief list of some of them. Let me know if you had the chance to watch them and also let me know if you agree with the score of 0%.
