As anyone who has seen Paddington 2 can attest, Paul King’s movie is a loveable, marmalade-filled adventure that’s utterly delightful.
While the sequel may have been playing in UK cinemas for the past few weeks, Paddington 2 has only just ventured into US cinemas.
Reviews from American publications are, therefore, only just reaching the Internet and — surprise, surprise — they are glowing, becoming the fourth movie to have a 100% positive rating on aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes with over 100 reviews.
The other three pictures to hold the same title are Toy Story 2, the documentary Man on Wire, and French-German drama Things to Come. Last year’s Lady Bird — an Oscar frontrunner — also held the title but eventually received negative reviews.
