Marmalade for everyone!
"Paddington 2" is the unlikely hero that managed to win over every single cynical critic. It set a new record as the best-reviewed film of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. The sequel currently has a 100 percent "Fresh" rating with 169 fresh reviews and zero rotten reviews. That means it dethroned "Toy Story 2," which has 163 fresh reviews with zero rotten. (The first "Paddington" movie, which came out in 2015, is at 98 percent fresh.)
Of course, RT is just one of many metrics. Often, especially these days, audiences don't agree with the critics. This time, they seem to be close to the same page. "Paddington 2" has a Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score of 89 percent, with the average fan rating set at 4.4/5 from 4,744 user ratings. "Paddington 2" has a Cinemascore of A, a Metascore of 88 from Metacritic, and an 8.2 rating from IMDb users.
