Paddington 2 has become the highest rated film ever on Rotten Tomatoes after it scored more positive reviews than any other film.
Earlier this week, the acclaimed big-screen adaptation of Michael Bond’s books became only the fourth film to achieve a 100 percent fresh rating – joining the esteemed company of Toy Story 2, documentary Man On Wire and European drama Things To Come.
But Paddington 2 has now topped the lot to become the highest rated film of all time after securing 165 glowing reviews – which breaks the record previously held by Toy Story 2.
However, it could soon see the record being challenged by Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird – which has 50 more positive reviews than Paddington 2, but was ultimately brought down by one negative naysayer.
Among the 165 reviews received by Paddington 2 was NME’s verdict on it, with the film hailed as “heartwarming and completely charming”.
