10 Movies Classified as Rotten That Are Actually Good

Critics: they have opinions, and sometimes they are wrong. 

There are a lot of films that have been panned on Rotten Tomatoes as Rotten but are actually at least marginally Fresh (over 60%). 

Below are some of the most underrated supposedly-rotten-but-actually-decent movies on RT. 

Spaceballs (1987)

It’s pretty great to watch Jewish people finally get a chance to conquer all of space, especially while recognizing that (with notable Jews like Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher) they’d been there all the time. 

The Last Dragon (1985)

The film, about Leroy Green a young Black man (Taimak) who embraces his inner Chinese martial arts hero, is a joyful, pre-Wu Tang celebration of cross-cultural identification and self-actualization. 

Underwater (2020)

If you tire of action movies that pretend you’re there for quips or meaningful interpersonal drama or something other than the action, though, this is the stylish geyser of adrenaline you’re looking for.
