Tomatometers that failed to stay at 100% (90 movies items)

"Culprit: Variety Staff "Jean Renoir, who directs, wrote the scenario and dialog, and takes a leading role, has made a common error: he attempts to crowd too many ideas into 80 minutes of film fare, resulting in confusion." Date: July 6, 2010"
