Watch Out Snooty Film Critics, Cause The Rock Is Reading All Your Bad ‘Baywatch’ Reviews
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, star of such screen classics as Tooth Fairy and Race to Witch Mountain, has never been numero uno among critics.
In fact, his latest romp—the much-anticipated Baywatch movie—is a critical dud, racking up a meager 19% approval rating among film critics on Rotten Tomatoes. But that don’t mean a thing to The Rock, who is more concerned with fans having a good time at theaters.
After being informed on Twitter that Baywatch had a slight approval uptick of 2% on Rotten Tomatoes, he chimed in with his general indifference towards critics.
The new @baywatchmovie has now ticked up from 13% rotten to an 18% rotten tomato!

So The Rock is going for the last laugh. And since the movie just raked in $1.25 million during Wednesday night previews alone, he’ll certainly get that last laugh on payday.
Baywatch is now in theaters nationwide.
