Paddington was an un*bear*ably charming movie and sweeter than orange marmalade. (Note: I tried to talk my mother out of that pun but she insisted.)
The story was well paced, funny, and well..cuddly. The entire family will enjoy it.
I give high marks to Ben Whishaw and the digital artists at Framestore for bring the most adorable bear since Ted to life. I know, many folks will be scandalized by that comparison. Ted was cute, but Paddington left me yearning for more orange marmalade antics.
(Important: Ted is not a kids movie. Don’t show that to your kids just because there’s a Teddy Bear as the main character.)
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and Assistant Facebook Manager for our social media efforts. If you’ve interacted with someone on our Facebook page, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
