Movie: Old Hollywood Movies That Critics Think Are Good But Are 100% Bad

Movies are made for who? They’re made for us. They’re made to entertain us, inspire us, and enlighten us! But before they reach us, they go through a lot of tests and censorship. The critics might like, love, dislike, or even hate a movie according to their preference. However, there are times when the critics and the audience do not take the same road. Sometimes critics feel the movie is absolutely great. However, the audience finds it bad. Yes, critics’ opinions and rating matter, but the audience is the real king. If they feel the movie is good, it is good. If the audience thinks the movie is bad, it is bad. Period. No more arguments. So, here’s a list of old Hollywood movies that critics think are good, but are 100% bad. Check it out!

IMDb: 7.6/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 89%

The scoring looks great, doesn’t it? However, a few things that happened in the movie made most of the audience dislike it. First of all, the movie endorses child marriage. And, it also glorifies racist stereotypes. But it was a pleasure to the eyes to watch the beautiful Audrey Hepburn.

2. The Graduate (1967)

We don’t know about you, but many others, including us, feel the story of this movie is all over the place. A college graduate gets in a seductive relationship with his father’s business partner and falls for his daughter. What? Love and lust all with two women of the same family? Isn’t the story screwed? Also, not just this, the performance by the actors was not convincing. All in all, it was unimpressive!

3. West Side Story (1961)

Movie: West Side Story

IMDb: 7.5/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 93%

The critic’s rating is great. However, it’s the same old Romeo-Juliet storyline that gets boring. It is a painfully long and overrated movie. Also, this movie had forceful and fake Spanish accents. Such a turn-off!

4. All About Eve (1950)

IMDb: 8.2/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 99%

For some of you, the movie must be entertaining, thrilling, and incredible. However, some of the audience found the movie to be boring, dull, and lifeless.

5. The Seven Year Itch (1955)

IMDb: 7.1/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 87%

This movie is famous for Marilyn Monroe’s iconic flying dress scene. But it also endorses misogynistic nature and sexualizes Marilyn Monroe to a great extent. Moreover, this movie is bland. The plot isn’t impressive too. A man sends off his wife and kid for a vacation and ends up fantasizing about his hot neighbor!

6. The Birds (1963)

Movie: The Birds

IMDb: 7.7/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 95%

This movie is so lengthy with no proper dialogues, endless driving, parking, and walking scenes that after some point you’ll get bored. If you cut these unnecessary scenes, you’d be left with it like 20-30 minutes of the movie! Also, the plot of the movie is weird. The special effects are not great, the green screen used is improper and it isn’t like the book as such. However, no hate for Hitchcock, he’s a great director otherwise.

7. A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)

A Streetcar Named Desire
Movie: A Streetcar Named Desire

IMDb: 8/10 ; Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

The movie glorifies a toxic and abusive relationship as a very passionate relationship. No, thank you. Not something we would want to see and accept. Yes, acting and all is great in the movie. But the plot isn’t that great. Marlon Brando’s character is abusive to both his love interest and her sister.
