“Who would you trust more? Yourself? Or a troll behind a keyboard?”
These are the questions the "Gotti" Twitter account asked users on Twitter Monday to cast doubt on its abysmal reviews from critics.
By “yourself,” the trailer refers to audience reviews, which starkly contrast from professional reviews.
This difference is evident on Rotten Tomatoes, which aggregated a 0 percent score, the absolute lowest possible, from 28 critics and a positive score of 68 percent from a pool of over 7,000 users.
"Incredibles 2," which was a box office hit, had just over 7,600 user ratings.
Citing, “audiences loved it,” the trailer makes use of the apparently popular fondness of the biopic around audio clips of John Travolta’s character managing with scrutiny in the film.
The Twitter account enumerated the opinion of broad audiences in another trailer published Monday by showing positive testimonials from a handful movie-goers.
Monthly movie ticket subscription service, MoviePass, who partly funded the production of the film, promoted this narrative to users and reportedly contributed to 40 percent of movie’s box office earnings during opening weekend.
However, the unusual disparity between the ratings raises suspicion to the authenticity of the audience reviews.
Business Insider pointed out that multiple accounts were made this month and only reviewed “Gotti” and other MoviePass-funded films.
"Gotti" stars John Travolta as real-life New York mobster John Gotti. Travolta's wife Kelly Preston, also stars in the film as as Gotti’s wife, Victoria.
Released June 15, the biographical crime drama garnered attention for its disappointing opening weekend and for critic reviews. The New York Times called the movie “a mess” while the New York Post panned it as the “worst mob movie of all time.”
