But most of the General Audience don't really care that
much about movies and will give any film they don't absolutely hate a high score.
Also, we have to acknowledge the possibility that the movie's Rotten Tomatoes General Audience score might be skewed by more of the people who bothered to log on and rate the film being hard core Superman fanboys than not.
Basically what I'm saying is that Rotten Tomatoes' GA ratings aren't the most scientifically scrutinized data gathering polling around, so it's not really that clear what the numbers are telling us.
