(Photo by © Warner Bros. )Was Jim Carrey’s 1994 the single best year for a relative newcomer to the big screen ever? Or was it just the single best year for any actor – period? Consider that in this 12-month span, the In Living Color star appeared in three movies that were smash hits at the time and have gone on to become comedy classics: The Mask, Dumb Dumber, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Each would spawn catchphrases, sequels, and remain in the pop culture conversation almost three decades on, but only one stands out from the otherwise-Fresh pack for earning itself a big green splat on our Tomatometer.That film is Ave Ventura, which featured arguably Jim Carrey’s most Jim Carrey performance, a fact that split critics almost evenly – the movie is Rotten at 49% – between those who were repelled by his rubber-faced gonzo efforts and those who felt Carrey was the best thing about this sophomoric story of a stolen football mascot and the quest to track it down. (Still, reviews were kinder to the 1994 movie than they were to its sequel, released just a year later: Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was slapped with a Rotten Tomatometer score of just 25%.)Were the critics talking out of their… ahem, asses? Or are these widely beloved films genuine loooooosers when we take a clear-eyed look back at them? That’s what we’re asking in the latest episode of our podcast, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes), in which we tackle two movies for the first time ever: Ace Ventura and its bigger-budget, higher-concept, maybe-funnier(?) sequel. With all that film to tackle, we had to bring in the big guns, and this week joining our hosts Mark Ellis and Jacqueline Coley is stand-up comedian, actor, and director of the new – Fresh! – film, The Opening Act, Steve Byrne. In the ep, they talk about the epic talent of Jim Carrey, the challenge of comedy that doesn’t always age well – yes, we get into the problematic stuff here – and whether comedy sequels are inherently cursed. All in the quest to answer that question we ask every week: Was Rotten Tomatoes wrong?

It s November, which means we re about to be bombarded with awards season contenders, and this year, we ve got an embarrassment of riches on the release calendar. We ve got a Mr. Rogers biopic starring Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), a sequel to a wildly popular Disney film (Frozen II), a historical drama starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones (The Aeronauts), a crime thriller written by Lena Waithe with Daniel Kaluuya (Queen Slim), an acclaimed festival darling written by and starring Shia LaBeouf (Honey Boy), just to name a few. And guess what? Not a single one of those made it into our top five most anticipated movies of November. Read on to see what Rotten Tomatoes users and our fans on social media are looking forward to this month.1. Doctor Sleep (2019) 78%2,245 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Facebook and Twitter fans, #3 pick by our Instagram fansOpens November 8Given the popularity of Stephen King adaptations and the iconic nature of The Shining, it shouldn t be too shocking to see Doctor Sleep at the top of our list this week. But with so much good stuff coming out in November, we have to admit it s a little bit surprising. Based on the eponymous 2013 novel, the film follows a grown-up Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) as he investigates an evil cult responsible for kidnapping children who share his extrasensory gift. Reviews for the film have been positive overall so far, calling the sort-of-sequel a more contemplative type of horror film that nevertheless features plenty of callbacks to The Shining and a few chills of its own.2. The Irishman (2019) 95%1,369 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Instagram fans, #3 pick by our Facebook and Twitter fansOpens November 1 (limited); available to stream November 27 (Netflix)While The Irishman is technically getting a limited theatrical release, most folks will have to wait until the film becomes available on Netflix later in the month. Honestly, that might be for the better, considering its 3.5-hour runtime. Martin Scorsese s epic drama brings together Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel to recount the exploits of Frank Sheeran, an enforcer for the Buffalino crime family who may or may not have been partially responsible for the famous disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa in 1975. The announcement of the film came with a big to-do about the computerized de-aging that would be utilized, but those who have seen it say it s not an issue at all, and Scorsese has delivered yet another masterpiece. It s already Certified Fresh, and you can bet a lot of people are going to stream it when it drops on the 27th.3. Knives Out (2019)#2 pick by our Instagram and Twitter fans, #4 pick by our Facebook fansOpens November 27Rian Johnson endured a fair amount of criticism from certain corners of the internet after the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but Knives Out is decidedly more within his wheelhouse, and the critics who have seen the film already say it s a return to form for him. Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Shannon headline an ensemble cast in this classic whodunit about a peculiar detective is enlisted to unravel the mystery behind the murder of a wealthy crime novelist, who was killed while the whole family was gathered for his 85th birthday. This was the second-most anticipated film for our Instagram and Twitter followers, and it s also already Certified Fresh.4. Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) 70%

2.40.7 2月喜迎(Photo by FX)Ryan Murphy s TV Series and Films Ranked by TomatometerWhat do you do when you ve conquered the worlds of network and cable TV, won a slew of awards for your efforts, and become one of the few household-name showrunners in the country? Do it all again.Murphy, who made waves in 2018 with a record-breaking Netflix deal that resulted in series like Ratched and Halston, is also the executive producer in the latest installment of FX s American Crime Story: Impeachment, which is about the Bill Clinton sex scandal of the 1990s and is created by Sarah Burgess. The new season, at 70% on the Tomatometer (as of September 8, 2021), caused an 8-point drop in the anthology series score, moving it lower on our list of Murphy properties.The producer, writer, director, and showrunner has been hugely influential in the medium, inspiring a resurgence in TV musicals with his high-school set Fox series Glee, unleashing a flood of anthology projects with FX s American Horror Story, creating trans awareness with his Emmy-winning FX show Pose, and gathering an informal troupe of fiercely loyal top acting talent, including Sarah Paulson, who portrays Clinton whistle-blower Linda Tripp in the new limited series. He has also been involved with several movies, such as directing Netflix s film adaptation of the musical The Prom and directing and executive producing the HBO film adaptation of the AIDS crisis play The Normal Heart.Here s how Murphy s movies and series stand so far by Tomatometer score.

Chuck Jones had already achieved the impossible with 1966 s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, turning Dr. Seuss’ popular short book into 24 minutes of stunning animation and beautifully transferring its heartwarming charm to the small screen. Boasting voice work led by the legendary Boris Karloff and an iconic song to match in “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” the beloved TV special seemed poised to stand the test of time. Alas, what is dead may never die, and in 1998 a new feature film adaptation directed by Ron Howard and starring Jim Carrey as the iconic Christmas grump was announced, ensuring a very different Grinch would lodge itself in the memories of a younger generation.Like Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and James Cameron, actor-turned-director Howard began his career behind the camera under the tutelage of Roger Corman. But soon enough, Howard s earnest, old-fashioned, unobtrusive filmmaking became his calling card, with movies like Cocoon, Willow, and Splash. His talent for world-building and his ability to make audiences fall for his characters turned him into a powerhouse director and producer across multiple genres, and both skills would prove invaluable in his adaptation of the Dr. Seuss tale.Howard’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas divided critics upon its release 20 years ago today, but it went on to become the sixth highest-grossing film of 2000. Audiences were met with a frenetic, bombastic version of a story they were already acquainted with, and, well, if they were expecting something akin to what Howard pulled off with Tom Hanks in Apollo 13, they were sure to be disappointed and possibly confused. But taken on its own merits, the film is a worthy expansion of the source material that features great performances and tackles still-relevant themes. How the Grinch Stole Christmas deserves to be recognized as one of the best modern Christmas movies and one of Ron Howard s most overlooked films.It Gave the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who Important BackstoriesIn what is perhaps the biggest departure from the original story, Ron Howard’s Grinch makes the Whos the antagonists and shows how their unchecked vanity created their biggest “monster.” In this version, it is Cindy Lou Who’s (Taylor Momsen) kindness and empathy that not only turns the Grinch into a mensch, but also turns the entire town of Whoville away from their obsessively capitalistic ideals.The Grinch’s new backstory as a kid who was bullied out of Whoville gives us a reason to root for him and helps establish that maybe the Whos do deserve his Yuletide scorn after all. Cindy Lou learns through some spiffy documentarian investigating that the Grinch was ostracized for looking different and thinking differently (and for being in love with the Who that grew up to be Christine Baranski). As a result, he became cynical and resentful, locking himself away from a world that rejected him.The film is a little clumsy in its attempt to be a story about “the other” – a shame, since there is something to the idea of how capitalistic societies tend to ignore and cast out their most vulnerable – but it’s executed well enough to be effective. Howard’s interpretation turned the Grinch into someone we could care about, a tragic victim of the Whos selfish and obsessive natures, which makes for a more interesting take on the classic tale.It s a Clear Critique of Hyper-Consumerist CultureWhen Dr. Seuss wrote the original story in 1957, he was expressing his disdain for the consumer-focused direction Christmas seemed to have taken at the time; Howard clearly wanted to show that things hadn t changed all that much since then. The 90s were a time of angst and excess; with this adaptation, Howard created something that was more familiar in theory to the wasteful world audiences were living in at the turn of the millennium. There are even jokes about how the Grinch collects most of the gifts the Whos toss out after Christmas every year.Speaking of which, we see the townsfolk fret and obsess obnoxiously over everything Christmas-related, from mailing gifts on time to competing for Best Christmas Light Display (shout-out to Molly Shannon in her small role here as Betty Lou Who, A+ suburban mom). After the Grinch’s mischievous Jubilation rampage, we even see a Who offering to sell another clearly distressed man a hat rather than attempt to help him. Their mayor, Augustus Maywho (Jeffrey Tambor), is even more useless; he sets the example with zero compassion for his citizens in a time of need. It’s no wonder Cindy Lou is concerned that her fellow Whos might have lost sight of what Christmas is really about. The Whos aren t just antagonistic; their unsatisfied thirst for material possessions makes them blind to their own faults.Aesthetically, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is Baz Luhrmann-meets-Joel Schumacher, and it’s both wonderfully bonkers and thematically appropriate. Ron Howard and production designer Michael Corenblith crafted a world that felt lived in despite its over-the-top features and made it easy to escape into in a way remarkably reminiscent of what Howard did in Willow. It s a significant departure from holiday films of the time, which were almost too-wholesome, too-perfect depictions of the holidays. No shade on Home Alone, but the chaotic energy that this new Grinch brought to the holiday scene was bold and attuned with the excess that accompanies consumeristic greed.Jim Carrey and Taylor Momsen Are Perfectly Cast Against Each Other(Photo by ©Universal courtesy Everett Collection)Speaking of chaotic energy, it was an inspired choice to cast Jim Carrey. This Grinch has curious interior design instincts, an appetite for glass, and a penchant for the absurdly gross. Carrey seamlessly steps into the role and fully owns its hysteria. When the Grinch grapples with whether he has time in his oh-so-busy schedule to step outside the safety of his home, let alone decide what to wear if he chose to attend the Whos’ Jubilation ceremony, it’s a relatable and hilarious moment that only works thanks to Carrey’s gloriously manic performance.But Carrey gets to show a smidge of his dramatic acting chops here, too, in one of the film’s most heartbreaking scenes. When we return from the flashback to the Grinch’s childhood, the grown-up Grinch gazes down at Whoville, clearly hurting from the trauma of his past. The scene lasts only a brief moment, but it s effective enough to secure our empathy (even if Roger Ebert vehemently disagreed).The dawn of the new millennium was a post-angst, post-meta time, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas features an unusual amount of existentialism that makes it highly relatable to millennials. Who didn’t shed a tear at Cindy Lou Who’s power ballad Where Are You Christmas? Written by Mariah Carey (yes, that Mariah Carey), the film’s composer James Horner, and Will Jennings, the song is performed by Taylor Momsen in a scene that’s a little high on the cheese factor, but is really effective in expressing Cindy Lou’s sorrow over the seeming death of the true Christmas spirit. (All while wistfully looking out her bedroom window, no less.)Beyond that, Momsen’s Cindy Lou is a spunky and unlikely Christmas crusader, and she s a perfect foil to Jim Carrey’s intense energy. There is a warmth to her performance that is as comforting as hot chocolate on a cold winter day, and it’s palpable the moment we meet her holding a hilariously oversized bundle of gifts for her dad. With her earnest portrayal of Cindy Lou Who, Momsen holds her own and grounds the film whenever Carrey s Grinch threatens to send it too far off the rails.It s Frenetic Because It Has to Be, and It WorksWhen the film was released, the majority of critics pointed out that its tonal inconsistencies and overly meta jokes seemed out of place and made for a jarring experience. These are valid points; the film is oddly concerned with the very adult lives of the Whos and, in particular, the breathy, sensual presence of Martha May Whovier (Baranski, who knew exactly how to play the role).Without its hyper pacing, though, the film’s satire doesn’t quite land. Next to Jim Carrey s delivery of spastic, hee-haw humor, a stilted, sedated Whoville just doesn t make sense and wouldn t inspire any sympathy for the Grinch in a way that would stand apart from the 1966 TV special. Ron Howard knew this and deployed a splashy, flamboyant directorial style, turning the Whos into bombastic, self-absorbed creatures every bit as preposterous as the Grinch himself and teetering between campy excess and surprisingly dark pathos. From the moment James Horner’s score chimes in and Anthony Hopkins begins his narration, Howard chaotically blends Dr. Seuss’ iconic poetry and illustrations with surreal, heightened creations meant to remind us that this is as much a fantasy as it is a reflection of our own reality.The commentary is sometimes overshadowed by the film s candy-colored distractions, but it s there, and it only works because of the choices Howard made. For decades, he has been a reliable storyteller of a certain vision of America (for better or worse), and in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, he boldly stepped away from that vision to critique it. It was a risk that paid off, and the film remains both a whimsical piece of holiday entertainment and a reminder of what makes the season a cause for celebration. Only a Grinch would argue otherwise.How the Grinch Stole Christmas was released in theaters on November 17, 2000.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
(Photo by Getty Images)All John Singleton Movies RankedWith Boyz n the Hood, John Singleton fashioned a riveting, truthful document of turbulent inner city life within South Central Los Angeles, gave image and power to a class of people previously ignored in mainstream cinema, and became the youngest person to be Oscar-nominated for Best Director at age 24. And the first African-American ever.It was just about as auspicious a debut as any director has had, and Singleton carried the torch with more propulsive dramas: the lyrical Poetic Justice starring Janet Jackson, and the university-set Higher Learning. Neither were able to achieve the same high marks with critics back in the day, though they connected with their intended targets if the Audience Scores are anything to be reckoned with. Rosewood, about the 1923 Florida massacre, could be seen something of a return to form.Singleton formally entered his Hollywood era with the new century, delivering the sly Shaft remake starring Samuel L. Jackson and the first Fast and Furious franchise sequel. After 2011 s Abduction with Taylor Lautner fizzled, Singleton turned to television, directing episodes of The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Empire, and creating drug crime serial Snowfall for FX. In April 2019, Singleton passed away at the age of 51 after lapsing into a coma due to a stroke he suffered two weeks earlier. As the movie industry deals with the loss of a pioneering talent and trailblazing voice, we celebrate his life by looking back on all of John Singleton s movies.
