After the week of action provided by Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, we have a trio of smaller films hitting theaters this weekend - but what's nice is that they all offer something different. There's a pair of women caught up in a bunch of hi jinx-laden espionage; a group of kids with superpowers on the run from the authorities; and a return to the Hundred Acre Wood. Get ready for The Spy Who Dumped Me, The Darkest Minds, Christopher Robin.

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
29%

The first joke in the trailer for The Spy Who Dumped Me centers on the idea that two women can't drive a stick shift in the car they've hijacked. One scene doesn't a movie make, but when that's the best foot that the studio is putting forward, it's likely a problem. Here we get two gals (Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon) thrust into an international conspiracy because one of their ex-boyfriends is a CIA agent on the run.

There's probably a funny movie somewhere in The Spy Who Dumped Me, but it sure doesn't look like the final product brings it to light. Early reviews are trending negative, with it sitting at 38% with eight critics having reported in. I suspect it drops over the course of the week. The negativity in some of the write-ups stem from the lack of originality, and canned jokes that have been trotted out in every spy comedy to date. Again, the trailer doesn't really sell it, so I can't assume hidden laughs will come out of the woodwork.
