Fresh news, everyone: A very Rotten book is on the way.

We’re super excited to announce that this October we will release our first ever book, Rotten Movies We LoveThe book, published by Running Press, will feature 101 movies with Rotten Tomatometer scores that we love regardless. (Because we – just like you – still can’t believe Step Brothers is Rotten.)

We go to bat for the splat-worthy movies in Rotten Movies We Love for a variety of reasons. The movies might be:

  • Audience favorites that bombed with critics – like Space Jam and Bad Boys
  • Sci-fi curiosities so bad they’re awesome – like Masters of the Universe and Zardoz
  • Cult classics the critics didn’t see coming – like The Last DragonThe Craft, and MacGruber
  • Underrated gems that have aged very well – like Jennifer’s BodyEvent Horizon, and The Cable Guy
  • Sequels worth a second look – like Rocky IVReturn to Oz, and Home Alone 2

The majority of films have been chosen by the editors of Rotten Tomatoes, but the book also features essays from some great Tomatometer-approved critics whose work we’ve long admired, including Leonard Maltin, Empire magazine editor-in-chief Terri White, Vanity Fair writer K. Austin Collins, Monica Castillo, and many more.

The book is available from October 8, 2019, and you can find out more info and preorder it here.
