Selena Gomez Breaks Her Own Rotten Tomatoes Record With a Zero for ‘Behaving Badly’

5 hours ago

Selena Gomez might want to stay away from the internet for a few weeks because the reviews for her new comedy are in and they're awful. The 22-year-old stars as Nina Pennington in “Behaving Badly,” which hit select theaters Friday and was promptly panned by every single critic who reviewed it. To be fair, Rotten Tomatoes only has 10 reviews up so the opinion could certainly evolve in a more favorable direction. Improbably enough, this isn't the first time Gomez has found herself dredging the gutter of the popular review aggregate. As TheWrap previously reported, her 2013 flop “The Getaway,” which co-starred Ethan. »

She was the narrator for “Partisans of Vilna” and recreated a gossiping neighbor in “The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg” and a shop girl in “Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg.” Spending time with Wallach was guaranteed to be a good time as he was such a great storyteller.
