Everyone’s favorite bear is back on the big screen this Friday when PADDINGTON 2 opens across the country. My family was so excited to see this movie, and let me just say that we will be back to see it again! Finding a movie that I can take my kids to that does not make me cover their eyes and ears is sometimes hard to find. This charming movie full of belly laughs was a true feel-good movie that is safe for all ages!
Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. From being a barber’s apprentice to a window washer, Paddington delights audiences with his antics.
But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.
Hugh Grant, the dastardly narcissistic, decides this book is a little more important to him which regrettably lands Paddington in prison.
Using the charm that undoubtedly only Paddington posses, he charms the inmates and makes a few unlikely friends along the way.
Paddington 2 is one of those movies that you walk out with a smile on your face. The kind of movie that reminds you that kindness really does matter in this world, and if you look hard enough you will see the goodness all around you. Original movies are just hard to follow. No matter how hard they try, sequels often don’t measure up. Paddington 2 is the exception! This delightful and kind-hearted bear once again steals the show and hearts of those in attendance!
