Critics cannot stop gushing about 'Paddington 2,' the best-reviewed movie of 2018 with an 100% on Rotten Tomatoes
"'Paddington 2' is 'The Godfather Part II' of Peruvian bear movies, a sequel that surpasses the superb original."
"It's an exquisite reminder of the wondrous things that can happen when a storyteller of boundless imagination avails himself of some rigorous discipline."
"If you have kids, take them. If you have nieces and nephews, take them. If you don't have kids but just want to feel like one yourself, go see it. Paddington is a bear for all seasons."
"This bear is constantly striving to earn the approval of the humans in his life. One day, maybe we can all be worthy of his."
"The entire film sparkles with a Wes Anderson-ish whimsy and a kind heart that'll leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Just like the film's protagonist."
"The sequel has the same tone as the original but is livelier and funnier, mostly due to Hugh Grant, who gleams as the bad guy."
"There are slapstick hijinks and silly scenarios aplenty, but at its heart 'Paddington 2' has something serious to say about making the world a better place through daily acts of kindness."
"This is a film of such open-hearted joy and grace, which feels rare in an industry that often embraces cynicism and sarcasm, including in its children's stories."
