The Greatest Movie Ever Made?

I'm surprised no one has been talking about this film:

So you love it when the people are watching him on TV, cheering, speaking to their TVs, and all that crap? "He made it! Yeah! Alright Truman!" I thought it was an embarrassing conclusion to an otherwise decent film.

I was thinking of something else, and agreeably that little bit was hammy, so much so I've purged it from memory. By ending I just picture his little sign off slogan and walking out the door.

I think he was being sarcastic with his statement of, "The Greatest Movie Ever Made" considering the movie has 53 reviews and a 0% freshness rating.

Crossover is not just awful, it's gloriously, stupendously, magnificently awful. And best of all, it has Wayne Brady as the bad guy.

Has there ever been a major release not to get a single fresh tomato? We could be looking at something historic here (it seems even the worst movies get at least one recommendation from some place like "Chatanooga Morning Drive Radio" or another person you never heard of).

Gigli had two or three fresh. 3%
Battlefield Earth ... 3%
Alone in the Dark had one ... ONE fresh tomato. 1%

Maybe not.

Soooo close! Damn you Michelle Alexandria of Eclipse Magazine! She's a good bet to blow the "perfect" score for "Crossover" too. Looking at her review history, she may be the worst published critic in the country. Fresh tomatoes to: "The Punisher", "Van Helsing", "Alone in the Dark", "Catwoman", "Aliens vs Predator", "Blade: Trinity", "The Pacifier", "The DaVinci Code", "Herbie: Fully Loaded". Rotten tomatoes to: "Sin City", "Kill Bill 2", "The Return of the King", "Master and Commander", "Sky Captain". Different strokes and all, but oy vey

OK, I answered my own question. "Crossover" is looking to become the 5th 0% RT movie ever (at least among those with more than a handful of reviews). The other 4?

Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever (2002-98 reviews)
Pinocchio (2002-53 reviews)
King's Ransom (2005-44 reviews)
Zoom (2006-46 reviews)

An elite group to be sure!
