Rotten Tomatoes?

9 Must-Eat Summer Movies, is presented by Eat24 which is a dinner deliver/take out app. I've only used the app once but now that I'm signed up, I get weekly emails from them which usually include a coupon or discount for my next order.

Even though I've never used the service more than once, I continue to get the emails because the fine print at the bottom is worth a folder full of junk mail! This is the last email I received:
It's the weekend. You're hungry. You're craving something fried and potatoey. You make your way over to the fridge and open the door to find a mustard packet, baking soda, and something that expired in 2007. What do you do next?

  • To order delivery, download our Choose Your Own Dinner app.
  • To save some dough* on your order, use the coupon below.
  • To make something with the ingredients in your fridge, scroll down to these: **.
  • To tell us an even better choice, email us at media@eat24.com.
The fine print:
*You're probably feeling pretty good right about now, huh? After all, you dodged hunger and lived to eat another crab rangoon. Well done. What's your next move? Do you start reading our Summer Movie Guide full of ice cream sundae heroes, romantic leads played by turkey hoagies, and crazed pickles just begging to be tamed, or do you read this boring Fine Print the lawyers made us put here: This $2 coupon expires on Sunday, May 31st at 11:59PM PDT. You must be an Eat24 member to enjoy our code, which can only be used once on orders of $10 or more when paying with Credit Card, Google Wallet or PayPal. Hopefully you chose wisely and aren't reading this anymore. Because this is The End.
**You decide to give it a go and make something with the ingredients found in the fridge. You sprinkle baking soda on the mustard and are about to open the expired thing when you realize, this is not a hot, delicious pepperoni pizza. Recognizing your mistake, you go back to the top of this email and try again.
Their blog is pretty funny, too. It's written like they don't believe anybody really reads it.

Maybe I'm the only one who does.
