About the Film
Adapted from Michael Bond’s beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British, who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realise that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck (‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’) and offer him a temporary haven. But little do the Browns realise just how much comic mayhem one young bear will bring to their family life, and when this rarest of bears catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn’t long before his home, and very existence, is under threat. Produced by David Heyman (The Harry Potter series) Paddington, is a timeless and universal story written and directed by Paul King. With Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington Bear, the film’s all-star cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters.
I love this film!
It's really funny and it also manages to be really cute without going over-the-top cringy. The only slightly confusing part is the villian. I mean, yes, she wants to stuff Paddington, otherwise there would be no point in the plot; what I don't get is why. There is a backstory, but it seems a bit weak to suggest that little Millicent grew up to be a really over-the-top evil taxidermist who is prepared to abseil down buildings to catch a bear just because her dad failed to bring back a specimen. Still, this does nothing to spoil the film or its message, and it's a great family movie for all ages: ignore the PG, I'd happily allow a 5-year-old to see it but it's still entertaining for adults.
Such a fun film! I love that people still remember such a lovable bear of the 80's and 90's! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ star fun for all the family and friends!
I enjoyed it as much as my 7 year old daughter - not sure I should admit that but anyway! terrific cast and lots of laughs.
