but the audience went into the movie understanding that it isn't trying to be a masterpiece, and it hit their it scored high with them, and they are the only ones that really matter.

That's a tired argument prime.

For example:

It can be a stupid fun movie, but also be a good movie. The way it's built and such plays a big role. Underworld does not have those things.
