Paddington 2 is Currently the Best Reviewed Movie Ever on Rotten Tomatoes. 100% With 168 Reviews Counted.








Paddington 2 has, quite honestly, become the critical surprise of 2018 and we're only January 18th. As it stands, the animated movie has topped Toy Story 2‘s Rotten Tomatoes record, "notching the most consecutive Fresh reviews without a single Rotten write-up." As of this writing, Paddington 2 has 164 Fresh reviews, versus Toy Story 2‘s 163."
Director Paul King released a statement: 

“The Paddington films are a real labour of love. So many people pour their hearts and souls into them for months or even years, hand-crafting every last frame, and we are all incredibly grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had so far. We hope it inspires people to go to the cinema to see for themselves if a talking animal film really can be any good, and whether Hugh Grant really can look devilishly handsome even while dressed as a nun. (Clue: yes.)”

I have yet to watch the new reigning Tomato king. Missed the press screening as I was preparing for my Park City venture. Now that I'm at Sundance I don't think there's a theater in the vicinity that is showing it, but I will catch up to it upon my return.
