In the past few decades, reviews have become an inextricable part of the cultural identity of movies, moreso than perhaps any other creative medium. The obsession has culminated into the coveted film status of a "Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a site that aggregates film reviews by both professional critic and user alike and doles out a score based on the collection's averages. Social media platforms have even been built around the idea of reviewing movies with your friends, with the one of the most popular renditions being Letterboxd.

Not every review is created equal, and some are so misguided that they work better as jokes than as constructive commentary or criticism. We've done you the favor of collecting a list of the most hilarious reviews that left us scratching our heads in disbelief.
