Jennifer Lawrence's latest big-screen venture has left moviegoers very unimpressed. "mother!" earned a grade F rating from fans on CinemaScore, an industry-leading polling website that has used audiences opinions to grade films since 1978.

CinemaScore polls audiences on the opening night of film's to acquire demographic information and aggregate an adequate grade. The psychological thriller's F rating is a rare accomplishment that very few films have earned on the website, which has resulted in a slim chance at making a box office comeback.

Directed by Darren Aronofsky of 'Black Swan' fame, "mother!" acquired its F score Friday as it opened up nationwide for a wide theatrical release. "mother!" joins Brad Pitt's "Killing Them Softly" and Cameron Diaz's "The Box" in the exclusive F-rating club, which is generally reserved for horror movie titles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lawrence stars alongside Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The film and its star-studded cast made appearances at Toronto International Film Festival before earning largely positive reviews from critics, sitting at 68 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. However, audiences also offered negative feedback for the film on Rotten Tomatoes, which only 42 percent of moviegoers claimed to have enjoyed. The Lawrence-led horror picture, which went up against "IT" and "American Assasin," racked up a measly $7.5 million, according to early weekend estimates.

"mother!" has managed to anger several moviegoers. Several users deemed the film "interesting" and "wonderful," but much more echoed that it was the "worst movie."

"You'll need a scorecard to keep track of what's going on," one user commented. "It's as if random scenes from different movies were thrown together. Just awful."

"Worst movie I've ever seen, and can't believe the critics scored it above 1%. Do NOT waste your time or money on this complete mess of what could have been a decent movie," another user wrote.

"Not horror. Not psychological thriller. Not anything except well filmed," a third user just added. "Marketing alone took this film to where folks forked out $7.5 million in [the] first weekend - bomb. The only thing that kept me engaged was trying to figure out what was really going on, but in the end, it was a film maker's film for wannabe filmmakers."

"In the end, mother! is a film certain to be revered by some and reviled by others," Christopher Orr, a reporter for The Atlantic, said of the film's mixed feedback Friday. "While I'd place myself mostly in the former camp, plenty of reasonable people will find themselves in the latter. This is a demanding film, and there is one grisly (though in no way gratuitous) twist near the end that will test the endurance even of those who appreciated what came before. So be forewarned."

Ann Hornaday, a reporter for The Washington Post, claimed Thursday the film was "intriguing but ultimately frustratingly undisciplined experiment" despite Lawrence's performance. "Even Lawrence’s magnetic powers can’t keep “Mother!” from going off the rails, which at first occurs cumulatively, then in a mad rush during the film’s outlandish climax," Hornaday wrote.

"You don't need a notebook or a theology degree to understand, on a fundamental level, the deeper sense that this violently irrational movie is making," Justin Chang, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, wrote Thursday. "It comes together beautifully in your head even as everything else seems to be coming apart."

A large part of the film's marketing appeal is its protagonist, Lawrence, who typically guarantees a box office landslide. The horror flick tells the story of a newlywed couple, played by Lawrence and Bardem, whose relationship is tested with the arrival of uninvited guests at their home. The film is distributed by Paramount Pictures.
