I stayed far away from this movie in 2014, because I didn’t want a favorite childhood book to be ruined by the movie adaptation. However, Paddington 2 was getting such rave reviews from critics* that I decided to check it out. It did the opposite of ruining a childhood favorite; it made it better with a funny sweetness and great acting all around.**
Cost: Netflix subscription
Where watched: at home, with Matt, who had no childhood references to the book and also enjoyed the film.
*When critics are raving about Paddington 2, is something wacky in the world, or is it just that good of film? Time will tell.
**Nicole Kidman=very fun villain. See also: To Die For
