ARRIVAL PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 68 moviegoers: 
TEENS: The one male loved it, as did the one female.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One of the four males loved it with the remaining three indicating they enjoyed it very much. Two females loved it and two enjoyed it very much rating it "above average."
ADULTS: Overall the adult reviews are very good but not great. About 45% of the males 35% of the females loved it with another 25% of the males and 20% of the females rating it "above average," which indicates they enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, over 30% of the males and 40% of the females felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). I suspect the strange ending caused most of the "average" reviews because it was a very entertaining movie up to the end.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, and on the whole reaction should be fairly good but not great. Women will react more strongly than men.

Average critic rating:
Excellent (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Good (Roger Ebert)
Excellent (USA Today)
Very Good (NY Post)
