I don't buy that. There are plenty of movies that have been shredded by the critics, but then went on to make a crapload of money.
And of course the opposite can be true at times as well.
Critical darlings with good to great RT/Metacritic scores struggle or are out right flops.
I saw Lone Ranger it was too long and too neutered for a Western about a vengeful duo in the late 19th century American West.
