Bad wrap

FOUND ONLINE: This 2002 box-office bomb gets a bad wrap ...

This writer is talking about a movie that isn't as bad as first thought.

Generally, it would be bad rap, not bad wrap. One online dictionary defines bad rap as "Any unjustified condemnation: Microsoft gets a bad rap for a reason."

Another web site says "A bad wrap is an unappetizing sandwich made of fillings wrapped in a tortilla. A bad rap — otherwise known as a bum rap — is dishonor resulting from false accusations or trumped-up charges."

Bad rap fits here.
