Oh baby. We are headed into Memorial Day Weekend and have a couple of studios fighting it out for the blockbuster to start of mid-summer. We've got Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales coming soon to a theater near you. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Baywatch Cast
Rotten Watch Prediction
38%

Full of slow-motion runs and bouncing boobs, Baywatch is a cultural touchstone of the late 20th century (for better or worse) - but the movie version of the show is hard to get feel for. On the one hand, it looks like it should work a la 21 Jump Street or Starsky & Hutch - where the filmmakers are somewhat making fun of the thing that was once cool. On the other hand, it takes nuance to make that work. While I want to believe Dwayne Johnson can make anything positive, this one might be pushing the limits.

Director Seth Gordon's has had an interesting career. Horrible Bosses (68%) did fine enough, Identity Thief (19%) was a total mess, and King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (97%) is one of the best documentaries you'll ever see. So yeah, the dude's been all over the map. I think Baywatch is a money grab for the guy . While it looks fun, I can't imagine it finishes well with critics.
