'Lady Bird' kicks 'Toy Story 2' to the Rotten Tomatoes curb

'Lady Bird' kicks 'Toy Story 2' to the Rotten Tomatoes curb

All 170 reviews of "Lady Bird" through Monday morning on the movie critic website have marked the movie as "fresh", not the "rotten" label reserved for less-than-savory flicks. The New York Times described Ronan as 'one of the most formidable actors in movies today' in their review of the title.

According to critics, Lady Bird is a ideal movie. She found out the news from her younger brother, who was "also slightly skeptical" that her film had bested an animated classic like Toy Story 2, she joked. Greta Gerwig's directorial debut is officially the best reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes, edging out Toy Story 2 for the movie with the most reviews to hold a 100% score.

"It's awesome", Gerwig told Vanity Fair, adding that her younger brother had told her the news and even he was "slightly skeptical" that her film had beat the animated movie.

Since its November 3 release, Lady Bird has made more than $10 million, despite having played in only 800 or so theaters nationwide. Still, even with all those positive reviews, its overall rating was 8.3 out of 10.

Other movies with a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes include Citizen Kane, Singin' in the Rain, Seven Samurai and Twelve Angry Men. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true. Even Armond White, a known contrarian who tanked Toy Story 3's flawless score, was forced to bow to Lady Bird's supremacy, acquiescing that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".




We smell a busy awards season, Gerwig.

She added, "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".

Lady Bird is now playing in select theaters.

In the case of Gerwig's Lady Bird, it was given a wide release and thus had to adhere to that higher standard, which it leapt over with grace.
