We've got a full slate of movies this time around with four flicks hitting the big screen in wide release. It's folks heading back for GEDs, Yetis searching for humans, amusement parks of death, and a modern-day retelling of a classic. Get ready for Smallfoot, Night School, Little Women and Hell Fest.

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

Kevin Hart regularly seems to be starring as a normal guy who gets thrown into seriously bizarre circumstances. In Central Intelligence he unwittingly teams up with Dwayne Johnson to join the CIA and save the world. In Ride Along, he gets to, sort of, become a cop with the brother-in-law from hell. In Get Hard he preps Will Ferrell for prison life. You get the point. The guy makes his bones on being funny in over-the-top comedies. This one is no different, with Hart entering the most ridiculous version of night school in order to get a GED. That's merely the flimsy premise. The rest of the movie just looks like an excuse to make jokes that would fit really any scenario - and it doesn't look great.

Director Malcolm D. Lee has some comedic critical success with Girls Trip (90%), Barbershop: The Next Cut (90%) and The Best Man Holiday (70%). But he's also helmed Scary Movie 5 (4%) Soul Men (45%) and Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins (23%). I have to think this latest falls closer to the latter set of flicks. It doesn't look all the funny and any chance of a redemptive theme looks like a wash.
