Paddington

Kids & Family • PG-13 • Directed by: Paul King • 95 minutes

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter franchise), Paddington brings us the live-action story of a young talking bear (Ben Whishaw of Skyfall) who finds himself lost and alone in London until he meets the kindly Brown family. They read the label around his neck that says, “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. After a series of comic misadventures, Paddington must convince the Brown family that he belongs with them, all while staying out of the way of a museum taxidermist (Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman of The Golden Compass) who's got her eyes on him. Co-starring Michael Gambon (Harry Potter franchise), Academy Award-nominee Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), Oscar-nominee Julie Walters (Brave), Hugh Bonneville (TV's Downton Abbey), Academy Award-winner Peter Capaldi (TV's Doctor Who), Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas), and Academy Award-nominee Imelda Staunton (Maleficent).

Great movie. But this movie is definitely PG, not PG-13. Change that, or you’ll lose sales to parents, iTunes. — andrewthewriter

Fantastic Film!
★★★★★
I loved this film from start to finish. The only thing that’s odd to me, and completely inaccurate is that this film is NOT Rated PG-13. SERIOUSLY iTunes! Get it right! — ftcskillsdirector3

Paddington - a 5++ star rating!!!
★★★★★
What a wonderful movie! Can't imagine anyone not liking it. The story is exceptionally well paced so there is never a dull moment. I never expected to enjoy this as much as I did. The funny scenes are hilarious. It's a true "feel good" movie. For adults as much as for kids. The sets are strikingly gorgeous and the CGI's are perfectly realistic. Rent it (or even better, buy it). Total enjoyment. — jpp4053

Fun Family Movie
★★★★
Having grown up with Paddington back in the UK, this movie was a must and our kids laughed frequently during this lovely family movie. Obviously relating to the various places in London helped but all together a nice light hearted movie for the family. — IJW123

Terrible writing, not interesting. — Pizag

Excellent
★★★★★
I took my 4 yr old to see it in the theater and I thought it was cute and just simply okay at first. Then I purchased it, my daughters watch it almost everyday and I love it more every time I see it. The casting is superb and the characters and adorable. The movie is lovely and quirky. Wonderfully done! — Furrilius

A surprising treat from the United Kingdom!
★★★★★
This movie is the best live action adaptations of a children's franchise, and shows us that it's possible to reboot a classic series and tell a new story to a modern audience without potty humor or pop culture references. I'd rather watch this over other live-action adaptations that are crude such as that new SpongeBob film or even the Garfield movies that I love. I've never thought I'd see the day when a perfect film like Paddington would come through our gates. — mimitchi33

Hahaha😍😍😍
★★★★★
I love this movie!!!!! — Dunzzzzzzzz

Strange Plot
★★★★★
The villain is too strange and really doesn’t work well in the story. Paddington looks really good and oddly blends in well with all of the characters. But in the end, the story is weak and plays out flatly. — Frank C 66554321.

BAD
★★★★
First of all it took all my money I had 10 dollars now I have .83 cents, it didn't download and I want my money back! — Cghhxfggv

★★★★★
This movie is very funny and interesting ! It's well worth seeing ! — Cui Tao

not all that great...
★★★★★
I thought the story was so so and the humor even less than that (dry humor) Even my kids thought it was a little slow… Cute movie…but not a block buster… — give me a break !

Delightful
★★★★
We have no kids but my wife is a sucker for these kinds of movies so I agreed to rent it. After a few minutes, I was enthralled. Great story and best blend of animation and live actors I've ever seen. Forgot that the bear was animated and was fully enveloped in him as a real character. Not just for kids - adults will find the story very enjoyable. — snagitseven

Terrific Movie
★★★★
A good flick that never gets to slow and boring, does a great job of telling the story and keeping you entertained. — Syllogistic

Terribly Boring
★★★★
This was an extremely boring movie. I tried very hard to finish it to the end. I dont understand how it has such high ratings. Maybe im the odd ball. Ive watched movies I didnt enjoy before but Ive never wrote a bad review. This movie is awful! — MariiehbellaHeaven

Actually great!
★★★★★
I think that the animation was amazing. It’s also kinda sad, but honestly it is a masterpiece. — DEADMAUDUBSKRIL

★★★★★
OMG THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I'VE SEEN IN A LOOOOOOOONG TIME!!!!!! JUST BY THE LOOK OF THE WONDERFUL SCENE SETTING, THE VISUAL CHARACTER ANIMATIONS, AND THE HEART-WARMING FAMILY LOVE, I THINK THIS MOVIE CAN BECOME A TRUE CLASSIC ALONG WITH SOUND OF MUSIC AND ALL THOSE OTHER FAMOUS ONES!!!! Ps. I wanted to live in the house they were in sooooooooooooo bad!!!! — Patches_the_Shih_Tzu

A movie for all ages

This movie is a must have!!! You won't be disappointed, this movie is for whole family to enjoy and a movie for the young and old. Instead of renting the movie, buy the movie. It was the best 15.00 and plus tax I spent on a movie other than Frozen and Big Hero 6. — NicoPWD
