We Americans love our movies. After all, few places in the world are as important to movie production as Hollywood. But that doesn't mean we're indiscriminate when it comes to movies. If you have children, you don't want to take them to an inappropriate movie.

Besides, it is expensive to go to the movies. Tickets alone can be $8 or more. So we don't want to waste our time and money on a bad movie.

How do you decide if you'll see a movie? You may rely on the advice of friends. Or maybe you follow movie reviews.

But Larry James has a better way for you to find out about all kinds of movies: Rotten Tomatoes. The site gathers movie reviews from a number of sources. So, it is a quick way to get multiple opinions.

The reviews are tallied, so you can see what the average review is. Tired of listening to the experts? Then read the user reviews! You can also read interviews and catch up on movie news.
