Welcome to the Rotten Tomatoes Developer Network

Rotten Tomatoes and the Tomatometer®™ ratings are one of the most trusted measurements of quality entertainment. The Tomatometer rating represents the percentage of positive professional reviews for movies and TV shows and is used by millions to guide entertainment viewing decisions. Rotten Tomatoes designates the best reviewed movies and TV shows as Certified Fresh. That accolade is awarded to movies and TV shows with a Tomatometer rating of 75% and higher, based on a required minimum number of reviews.

Available Data

The Rotten Tomatoes API provides access to Rotten Tomatoes' ratings and reviews, allowing approved companies and individuals to enrich their applications and widgets with Rotten Tomatoes data.  By implementing the Rotten Tomatoes API, your users can access:

  • Critic and Audience Scores. 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 to the Rotten Tomatoes API, please submit a proposal form outlining how you would like to use Rotten Tomatoes data. We will review each application to assess whether you are a good candidate based on our updated policies. 

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