Gotti marketing team fires back after horrendous reviews

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston at the New York premiere of Gotto last week

This would appear to show a glaring disconnect between the reaction of audiences and critics - at least if we take the numbers at face value.

The worst reviewed movie of the year is firing back at film critics. But that's suspicious; as Mashable's Kellen Beck notes, the film hasn't actually been seen by many people, and many of its reviews come from either private accounts or accounts that have only reviewed a couple of other things, raising questions about if this is an attempt to manipulate the scores.

Variety's review of "Gotti" attached near-praise to Travolta's performance but smeared the film overall.

"Gotti" now has a 71% Rotten Tomatoes audience score as of Tuesday afternoon.

The 16-second ad, which you can see below, says "Audiences loved Gotti..."

John Travolta's "Gotti" filmed earned a disappointing $1.6 million at the box office in its opening weekend.

Rescue ships dock in Spain as migrant debate roils Europe
The 1,500-kilometer (930-mile) journey across the Mediterranean from Sicily to Valencia took almost a week. An Italian naval vessel is due to bring the remaining migrants into port later in the morning.

The official Twitter account for Gotti seemed to be playing on the wildly opposing critic and audience scores with a tweet reading, "Audiences loved Gotti but critics don't want you to see it..."

Is there something rotten on Rotten Tomatoes?

The John Travolta crime biopic, chronicling the rise and fall of NY mobster John Gotti, failed to impress any professional critics who gave it a shot, sitting not-so-pretty with a 0 percent approval rating from 26 bad reviews.

"Gotti" is the second movie MoviePass has invested in through MoviePass Ventures. Meanwhile, it has managed to secure a 73 percent approval rating from 6,941 users who weighed in on the audience score. "I believe we created a very compelling campaign".

Wunder_3 examined the first 58 reviewers with accessible profile pages and found 45 of them had created their accounts in June and the majority had only reviewed Gotti.

Rotten Tomatoes is owned by movie-ticket company Fandango. It's just possible, we suppose, that those reviews flooded in from MoviePass's unusually keen subscribers.
