The Andrew Breitbart documentary Hating Breitbart is about to break an obscure but fitting Hollywood record: namely, the record for defying media critics.
According to Paul Bond of the Hollywood Reporter, the Breitbart film has recorded the largest-ever gap between audience ratings (96 percent) and critics’ ratings (0 percent) on the popular industry website RottenTomatoes.com.
The current record is a paltry 82 percent.
The record will not be official until Hating Breitbart receives ten critical reviews. Currently, it has eight. To miss the record, the two additional reviews would have to score the film at 70 percent or higher.
The fact that audiences love the film, and journalists hate it, perfectly exemplifies Andrew Breitbart’s persona.
There could be no more fitting rebuke to the critics–and no more fitting tribute to Andrew.
