One week removed from Avengers: Infinity War, and we've got three flicks on tap - though its worth noting that major blockbusters are staying as far away from the Marvel blockbuster as they can. There's a motherhood drama, a thriller, a comedy remake all coming your way. Get ready for Tully, Bad Samaritan, and Overboard.

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.

Rotten Watch Prediction
80%

As the father of a newborn, I can say there are at least five scenes in the trailer for Tully alone that look dead-on accurate in terms of depicting the pivotal and discombobulating time following a birth. I can only imagine the rest of the film is a motherhood tour-de-force with all of the good, bad and ugly that can come along with it.

Tully is already scoring well on the Tomatometer, sitting at 89% with 18 reviews posted. Critics are praising it as an honest and somewhat unforgiving look at what it means to raise children in the modern era. It makes sense this movie would have a strong showing. Director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air - 91%) and writer Diablo Cody (Juno - 94%) last successfully collaborated with Young Adult (81% - also starring Charlize Theron). This latest appears gritty and likely appeals to parents across the spectrum. It will probably fall some over the course of the week, but I suspect it finishes in this upper tier.
