Scientology Doesn’t Help: John Travolta’s “The Forger” Has a ZERO, 22 Negative Reviews


John Travolta’s been all over the place this week singing the praises of his cult, Scientology.

But the cult doesn’t help when your movie career is sinking for good. “The Forger” opens today with a ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes, all 22 reviews negativo. Not one positive post, not even from The Xenu Times.


LionsGate/Saban Films is the distributor.

“The Forger” just nosed out “Little Boy,” which got a 7% rating, 25 negative reviews and two positive. Can you imagine a movie with Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and...Kevin James???? Open Road is releasing, and usually know better.

Oscar season is so, so far away.
