    No, because I rarely read reviews before seeing a movie.

    But I like to read them afterwards if I find a movie interesting.

    Sometimes, mainly if it gets bad reviews across the board. I'll be almost certain not to watch it.

    Sometimes they do. If everyone says a movie stinks, they might have it right. I tend to listen to certain friends as well.

    Absolutely not!

    I prefer to see a movie tailored to my own taste, not someone else.

    Reviews affected me seeing Mr. Magorium's movie whatever it's called. It looked like it was going to be this Willy Wonka thing and so all the neighbors and I thought of taking the kids. That is, until every critic on the net and on TV said it stunk and the whole plot was will she or won't she take over the store as a manager. It's expensive for a family of four to see a movie, especially if that movie is lousy.
