RELATED: Paddington 2 Drops 100% Rotten Tomatoes Rating
For the longest time PADDINGTON 2 It was the highest-rated movie on the Rotten Tomatoes movie review site. Then in May of this year, Film Authority’s Eddie Harrison stole the crown for the delicious sequel. In Harrison’s review, he states that Paddington 2 it does not have the same spirit as the children’s books on which it is based, calling the situations Paddington finds himself in “made up and ridiculous.“ He also sets his sights on Paddington himself, calling for the cinematic incarnation of the beloved bear. “too trusting, sarcastic and surly”, even add that voice actor Ben Whishaw sounds like “A member of an indie-pop band coming off a dying ketamine high.” Oh brother. I guess some people don’t like joy, huh? To each his own and all that.
I, for one, am excited to hear that Paddington will be back for more misadventures and jam-fueled antics. Paddington was a huge part of my childhood reading time, and I can’t wait to see what he does next. Open your heart wide and let this sequel come, I say.
