Welcome to the Rotten Tomatoes Partner Developer Network

Rotten Tomatoes and the Tomatometer™ rating is the most trusted measurement of quality entertainment. The Tomatometer rating represents the percentage of positive professional reviews for films and TV shows and is used by millions every day to help with their entertainment viewing decisions. Rotten Tomatoes designates the best reviewed movies and TV shows as Certified Fresh. That accolade is awarded with Tomatometer ratings of 75% and higher, and a required minimum number of reviews.

Available Data

The Rotten Tomatoes API provides access to Rotten Tomatoes' ratings and reviews, allowing approved partners to build applications and widgets enriched with Rotten Tomatoes data.  By implementing the Rotten Tomatoes API, here are some of the things your users get:

  • Critic and Audience Scores. Access to Tomatometer and Audience scores for movies.
  • Critic Reviews. A sampling of critic reviews for each movie.
We do not provide:
  • Detailed movie metadata. We only provide a subset of metadata to help with title matching.
  • Posters and images. We do not offer high-resolution images; these will need to be sourced from a metadata provider. 
  • TV scores. Coming soon!

Apply for Access

To apply for access, submit a proposal form with details about your planned usage of Rotten Tomatoes data. We will be reviewing each application to ensure the usage of our data aligns with our updated policies. 

Please note that at this time we no longer support non-commercial use of our data (e.g. academic projects, non-user facing data integrations).
