    Let me try to be more clear. Rotten Tomatoes supplies 2 scores, the Tomatometer, which looks only at whether the critic liked or disliked the movie overall. The Tomatometer does not indicate passion level. Then there is a second score, which I will now capitalize to differentiate it - the Average Rating which is composed of an average of how critics mathematically rated the film if they did. So a 3 star movie out of 4 stars gets a rating of 7.5 (out of 10). A 4 star movie out of 5 stars gets a rating of 8 (out of 10). You can translate letter grades proportionally as well for those who do letter grades. So an A+ would score a 10. So with the Tomatometer, 90% of critics might like a mildly good movie and it score a 7.1 on the Average Rating or you might have a more divisive movie that some critics really love. That Tomatometer might be 80% but the Average Rating is a 8.2. What I did was calculate an average rating between the Tomatometer and the Average Rating. So my usage of the term "average rating" might be confusing because I'm referring to two different things with the term.
Oh, ok, I understand what you meant then. 

I guess my next inquiry would be to know how the scores are distributed around that average (standard deviation). Is the average close to the most often received score (Mode) or the result of 2 extremes balancing on a number very few provided as a rating.

    I used the IMDB audience score instead of the Rotten Tomatoes audience score. IMDB has a higher level of audience participation than Rotten Tomatoes.
Fair enough.

    Your example seems much more like a fan criticism than a film critic criticism. I've never read a professional film critic who didn't like a movie because a character smiled or not.

I suggest you read a couple of reviews on rotten tomatoes then... good and bad.
