It shouldn't matter what critics think. Is it an added bonus when they agree with the viewers opinon? sure. Judge a film by your own merits. Theres alot of films that just don't lend themselves to critics even though theres an audience. I laughed my ass off in both We're The Millers and Kick-Ass 2. That was the point. Entertainment and having a good time.
I judge films by own merit. Sex and the City the Movie, Spice World and Mamma Mia and even X3/Fantastic Four/G.I Joe are some of my favorite movies of all time.
And they all have rotten ratings in RT.
But in my opinion, its not smart to hire a writer who was a screenwriter to a film that wasn't well-received by the critics and critics will still have an effect on the film whether you, the fan community, the general audience and I enjoyed the film. Like if FOX is gonna make superhero films, they should hire people with a good track record/resume/filmography, not just because they enjoyed Kick-Ass 2 and they thought it was funny despite getting a low rating in RT.
