As if you needed another reminder that review aggregators are better for finding reviews rather than measuring them, check out this list of reviews for "The Myth of the American Sleepover," opening this Friday. I may have been more enthusiastic about the movie than Reed, but Metacritic processes his review as the only 0% rating, which knocks the movie's overall rating down a full ten percent. These days, for better or worse, that means something. If you're seeing movies based on numbers alone...stop.
