A bunch of fake-looking accounts are giving ‘Gotti’ five stars on Rotten Tomatoes

The film 'Gotti' has a 0% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.

UPDATE: June 19, 2018, 2:46 p.m. EDT Rotten Tomatoes told Mashable in an email that all of the reviews for Gotti are made by real users. This likely only implies that they weren’t posted by bots, not that they’re actually legitimate reviews.

Critics hated Gotti and according to box office numbers, the movie was barely seen by anybody in its opening weekend. 

Yet it’s received quite a lot of five-star Rotten Tomatoes reviews in the past couple days from non-critic users. Perhaps a few too many five-star reviews.

This is suspicious, to say the least, and may suggest that the marketing team behind Gotti is manipulating the movie’s audience score on Rotten Tomatoes with fake accounts showering Gotti with undeserved praise.

Dan Murrell of Screen Junkies pointed out Monday that Gotti‘s Rotten Tomatoes audience score was suspect, comparing it to reviews of other recent movies on the site.

Despite only opening in roughly 500 theaters, Gotti has received more than 6,900 audience reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, while Incredibles 2, which opened in about 4,400 theaters (and made about 180 times more money), has received just over 7,600. Those numbers don’t really add up.

A pattern begins to form after a closer look at who is reviewing Gotti so well. The majority of users who scored the movie a full five stars created their accounts in June and only reviewed Gotti and maybe one other movie. Interestingly, a whole bunch of accounts that gave Gotti five stars are private.

We reached out to Rotten Tomatoes to ask about the reviews of Gotti and they told us that “all of the ratings and reviews were left by real users.”

Yeah, sure, “real users.” There’s no way Rotten Tomatoes could’ve independently verified that thousands of reviews were legitimate, and while they may all have verified their emails, there’s no saying they’re real individuals who have seen the movie and loved it.

So why exactly could this be happening? Well, Gotti got a 0% score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, which is, obviously, terrible. On Monday, the film’s official Twitter account posted a short video saying not to trust critics and instead trust regular moviegoers who say the movie is worth your time and money.

Gotti asks us to question why critics don’t want the public to see the movie (the answer is because it’s very bad), as if there’s some conspiracy afoot.

Unfortunately for Gotti, this tactic had the opposite effect, and now many people on the internet think that Gotti is involved in its own conspiracy to bolster its review scores.

We will update this story as more information about Gotti‘s reviews comes to light.
