It’s a sad day for Citizen Kane fans. The iconic 1941 movie has been dethroned from Rotten Tomatoes’ list of top-reviewed films.
Here’s what you need to know: Citizen Kane had a perfect 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes—that is, until earlier this week when an 80-year-old Chicago Tribune review unexpectedly entered the pictured and dropped the Orson Welles flick’s score to 99 percent.
As a result, Citizen Kane has been knocked down from the number one spot and replaced by Paddington 2.
It’s important to note that Paddington 2 isn’t the top-rated film of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. Although it’s ranked at number 31, the higher ranked films don’t have a 100 percent rating. Therefore, Paddington 2 is replacing Citizen Kane as the highest placed movie with a perfect score, as The Guardian points out.
