Hasn't affected the good ones, apparently. Unless I'm missing an unfairly judged movie that suffered dramatically due to critics.

But you're stating the obvious. Everyone knows RDJ carried the film, so it's only proper critics focused in on that aspect and applauded it. There's nothing wrong with that.

Yes, Iron Man would've had a different outcome sans RDJ. Though you can take any film, remove a major component, and come to the same conclusion.
