The streaming giant Netflix’s all-new original comedy film Mixtape has emerged out to be a huge critical success. The movie had its premiere last week on Netflix and didn’t have any acclaim from the service itself. Neither did they have a clue of revelry on their end. Despite these issues, Mixtape has a picture-perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the famous rating website.
Mixtape Gets Huge Critics Acclaim
On the aggregation site, there are a total of eight reviews for the comedy film that features high praise from RogerEbert.com and Variety. Having a “Certified Fresh” designation on Rotten Tomatoes requires the film to have at least eighty reviews on the site, which sadly the movie might not achieve. However, a full 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is still very unique.
Variety’s Michael Nordine stated in their review that Valerie Weiss’ quite young-adult dramedy appears to be a deep cut over the usual tween fare. Again, Pop Culture Planet’s Kristen Maldonado appreciated the film as a ‘feel good movie’ that connects individuals with their roots, highlights friend making, and identifies oneself, Mixtape is an out-an-out family movie, worth watching.

The official description for the Netflix original goes like this:
