Way to ruin the 100%.

I hate it when Rotten Tomatoes counts ratings not accompanied by a review. I think those shouldn't even count, positive or negative.

How dare you give a rotten review to an astounding achievement.

Wow, way to go. You didn't even put a review to go along with your absolutely incredible opinion. What didn't you like about this film? What could you have possibly not liked? Seriously, I need to know.
Did your fingers slip on the keyboard, causing you to accidentally give this film a bad score?

This should be grounds for firing and this review could be cited in a hearing as a reason to justify the firing and deny this man unemployment compensation.

Well I did some of the work, and found an October 20, 1994 from this paper: I can't see the author's name since they charge $2 per article (!!!), but this has to be it:
-------------------------
"BOSTON - Arthur Agee and William Gates wanted to play in the NBA, but first, they had to survive life's relentless full-court press.

Director Steve James captured it all in an amazing documentary called "Hoop Dreams."This is a story about life, adversity, inner-city realities and, of course, basketball.

If it were a fictional piece, people might walk out of the theater shaking their heads, saying these things could never happen."
-----------------------
Just a snippet, but I think it's clear this was NOT a rotten review. Fix it, rotten tomatoes!

This "review" should be marked as N/R, at the very least. More logically, it needs to be removed entirely: without a link to the article there's no way to determine what the critic thought, so how did RT figure it out?

Why is this rating even here? There is no review to back up the rotten score. This should be taken off, unless RT doesn't give a crap.

I don't care what anyone says. Hoop Dreams is the greatest docu picture I have ever seen.

This was not a review but a quick rating. Nonetheless I stand by it. I found this overrated movie boring and endless. This was a 20 minute news magazine segment bloated to nearly three hours. "Yawn" is right.

Mr. Kimmel -

You don't find it odd that every other person that's seen this movie has given it a positive review, with some saying it's the best documentary ever made, while still others say it was the best movie of a very deep 1994?

Boring? Perhaps you're just boring.
