The audience reviews of Netflix's new comedy-drama-thriller I Care a Lot are in, and they're...pinballing wildly from "best film of the year" to "most disturbing film of the year," with nothing in between. Who knew a darkly funny movie about a conniving sociopath with a blunt bob that could cut glass and a penchant for defrauding senior citizens by posing as a caring legal guardian before draining their assets into her own account could cause such mixed reactions!
Perhaps the most striking example of the vast spectrum of opinions about I Care a Lot comes from its Rotten Tomatoes analysis. While the movie has easily been "certified fresh" due to an impressive 81 percent positivity rating from 136 professional critics' reviews, its audience score is a paltry 35 percent positive, accounting for more than 1,000 ratings from casual viewers. While critics and normies alike have almost uniformly praised Rosamund Pike's performance as the aforementioned con woman—for which she was also nominated for a Golden Globe—the shocking twist ending seems to have left a particularly bitter taste in the mouths of the latter group, who have taken to social media en masse to air their grievances with the film. Here's a sampling of some of the most dramatic reactions to I Care a Lot.
Some were absolutely horrified:

I Care A Lot on Netflix is crazy and lowkey infuriating to watch lol One, cuz of the premise, but two, cuz privileged, uppity white women are really on some crazy/dumb shit 😂🤦🏻♂️ The mafia is definitely the hero in the movie don’t try to convince me otherwise 🙄🥴🤷🏻♂️😂

I Care A Lot was disappointing, like the Russian mafia would be so careless and just give up. It would have been better if the lawyer got Marla declared as a ward of the state and played her at her own game

I Care A Lot seems like the movie version of a person who warns you about their dark sense of humor when they're just an asshole.

I'm about 15 mins into "I Care a Lot" and I feel sick. I used to work in the Community Mental Health system and know all about the evil of the court appointed guardianship machine. I sure know how to feed my anger monster. 🤬🤮

"I care a lot" is something no one will ever say about any of the characters in I CARE A LOT

Seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed I Care A Lot. Sometimes a movie can be compelling and not have a single character that you’re meant to cheer for. I found it to be unpredictable and suspenseful.

"I Care a Lot" kind of functions as a Guy Ritchie movie. Funny, absurd, and over the top. But most importantly, super fun. Rosamund Pike is amazing! ★★★½ pic.twitter.com/Vd6ABeVZA9

I’m scared that nothing I watch from now on is gonna be as good as I Care A Lot. Literally the most incredible thing I’ve seen in so long.
— Amy-Leigh Hickman (@AmyLHickman) February 23, 2021
But at least we can all agree that Rosamund Pike was born to play charming sociopaths:

I wasn’t prepared for how silly I Care A Lot was going to be, but it’s a lot of fun. Rosamund Pike, as many have said, is on Gone Girl form with some killer line deliveries throughout. Chris Messina threatens to steal the whole thing, but it’s really good, Pike-centric fun. 8/10 pic.twitter.com/rEJALzgE0N

I’m like 10 minutes into I Care A Lot and Rosamund Pike’s hair is absolutely fascinating. It’s freakishly perfect.

Rosamund Pike is one of the best villains I've ever seen in cinema. First in the Gone Girl and now in I Care a Lot. Capitalising off older people and leaving them with no way to get out of it, Disgusting yet Mind-blowing! #ICareALot pic.twitter.com/qOeK1TsDhH
