THE RAILWAY MAN R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 22 moviegoers: 
Although we were only able to collect 22 reviews for this limited release film, it's obvious that most moviegoers really enjoyed "The Railway Man." Four of the males loved it and two rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, two felt it was only an "average" movie, which is a bit disappointing, but not bad.
Surprisingly, the ladies enjoyed this movie more than the guys. Eighty-percent rated it extremely high, with the other 20% indicating it was an "above average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, and on the whole reactions should be fairly good. Men will give higher marks than women.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 57 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN:  Almost all the kids rated it really high.
TEENS:  A few males really enjoyed "Muppet's Most Wanted," but half only felt it was an average movie, which actually isn't bad since this is clearly a kids movie. The lone female loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  Only three females provided a review. One loved it, one rated it "above average" and one rated it just "average."
ADULTS: About 20% to 30% of the males and females really enjoyed "Muppet's Most Wanted." Unfortunately, 70% to 80% only felt it was an "average" movie. Considering this movie is targeted at kids, these adult reviews are decent.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this musical comedy. Kids will probably enjoy most. Males and females will enjoy equally.
