What is "Certified Fresh?"

Last Updated: Jun 02, 2015 10:17AM PDT
Certified Fresh is a distinction given on Rotten Tomatoes for movies and TV shows with consistently positive reviews.  The "Certified Fresh" seal is given to:
 
  • Movies in wide release with a Tomatometer of 75% or better and at least 80 reviews from Tomatometer Critics (including 5 Top Critics).
  • Movies in limited release with a Tomatometer of 75% or better and at least 40 reviews from Tomatometer Critics (including 5 Top Critics).
  • TV shows with a Tomatometer of 75% or better and at least 20 reviews from Tomatometer Critics (including 5 Top Critics).

Movies designated with the seal retain the Certified Fresh status as long as their Tomatometer remains above 70%.  The Certified Fresh designation may be held at the discretion of the Rotten Tomatoes editorial team.
