STEP UP ALL IN PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 54 moviegoers: 
TEENS: Sixth-percent of the males and 80% of the females LOVED "STEP UP ALL IN." All the remaining reviewers indicated that they enjoyed this movie very much. NO ONE rated it even as low as "average." That's great and indicates a movie that you are sure to enjoy very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: None
ADULTS: The few adults all enjoyed "Step Up All In" very much with many loving it.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this dance film, with the best marks from the target of teen and young adult females. Females in general will prefer over males, and scores will lower as ages go up.

A MOST WANTED MAN R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 29 moviegoers: 
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The male rated "A Most Wanted Man" just "average" but the female enjoyed it very much rating it "above average."
ADULTS: Overall, these are fairly poor reviews. Forty-percent of the males and 35% of the females enjoyed "A Most Wanted Man" very much but only a tiny percentage rated it above "Very Good." Another 35% of both the males and females rated it just "average," which isn't a bad review but it is a bit on the low side. What REALLY hurts these reviews is the high percentage of reviews below "Good/Average." It's very rare to see this many low to very low reviews.
This is one of those movies that you might want to see on the cheap later on video, just to be safe.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target audience of older adults, but on the whole reactions will be middling to fairly good. Men will likely enjoy more than women.

HERCULES PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 114 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: Great Reviews! They all loved "Hercules."
TEENS: Nearly all the males and two-thirds of the females loved "Hercules." Only a very small percentage of the males and 18% of the females rated it as low as "good/average." No one disliked it (very important).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The male and female reviews are very similar, about half indicated that they loved "Hercules." Another 25 to 30 percent rated it "above average," which is a high review. About 20% of both the males and females felt it was a "good/average" movie, which is a bit low but certainly not bad. Equally important, no one gave "Hercules" a bad review.
ADULTS: The male reviews are very good, but not quite great. Half indicated that they loved "Hercules," but a full 30% only rated it "good/average," which is a bit disappointing, but not bad. The remaining 20% rated it "above average," which is great.
The ladies enjoyed The Rock, I mean "Hercules," more than the guys. Three-quarters of them loved "Hercules." About 10% more rated it "above average." There were about 18% who felt it was just a "good/average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this action film. The best reactions will come from males, particularly teen and young adult ones. Scores will lower as ages go up.

Average critic rating:

MALEFICENT PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 71 moviegoers: 
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, enjoyed "Maleficent." Over half of all groups indicated that they loved it. Approximately twenty-percent more indicated it was an "above average" movie. Unfortunately, there were twenty-percent, or so, that only felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this fantasy adventure, with the best reactions coming from kids, particularly girls. Females in general will prefer over males, and younger viewers over older adults.

THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 79 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN:  Nearly all the children enjoyed "The Christmas Candle" very much. This movie is not likely to hold the attention of young children.
TEENS:  The lone male thought it was an average movie. The females all enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  The one male rated it above average. Both the females loved "The Christmas Candle."
ADULTS: FANTASTIC REVIEWS! Both males and females LOVED THIS MOVIE! These are exceptionally high reviews for a movie of this type (non-blockbuster). "The Christmas Candle" is a great movie for the entire family this Christmas season (or anytime).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
"The Christmas Candle" is an uplifting, feel-good story that's clean enough for the entire family. I believe audiences of all ages will rate this movie very high.
