Inadvertently deep

This Guardian article (link) does something very worthwhile, pointing out popular movies critics hated, and unpopular movies they loved.  It goes on to name names, point out which actors seem to be critics' pets (Jeff Bridges, Bruce Dern) and which ones are actually liked by audiences (Ice Cube, Martin Lawrence).  And then, we move on (bwah hah hah!) to directors...  Guess which group prefers Joel Schumacher?  And which really likes Keenan Ivory Wayans?

Keenan is of course is no stranger to critical discourse himself, and was not unconnected with the apex of critical achievement of the past century.
