Grade inflation noted on charter school film

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 6:28 AM

While we're on the subject of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

Couldn't help but notice a numerical difference in today's movie section on ratings for "Won't Back Down," a propaganda piece for charter schools.

The capsule review on page 1E gives the film a 90 rating, highest of the batch of new films rated this week.

The review by Dan Lybarger on page 3E gives the movie a 70 rating.

Maybe it's just a typo. The movie is scoring around 33 on Rotten Tomatoes.

I've sent a note to Phil Martin to inquire.

UPDATE: Phil's also an early riser. His response:

Typo — it's not that good. 70
