The most divisive films on Rotten Tomatoes

The internet was essentially created so that people could connect with each other and inevitably argue with each other, and what could be more fun than channeling your inner Siskel and Ebert and fighting about which movies are good and which ones suck? The folks at looked into this and released a list of the movies that have inspired the greatest disconnect between critics and regular viewers on the review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes — the titles that had film writers raving while leaving audiences shrugging, or vice versa.

Because of the nature of the site, with more reviews available for more current films, the titles skew toward the newer. But there are some surprises as well as no-brainers, and maybe some movies you've never heard of before. Here are the top 10.
