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.)
