My review of Paddington 2
Ha! I’m a poet and don’t even know it! Oh yeah!!
I was invited to a free screening of Paddington 2 for review, however the views are my own.
One of the best parts of blogging is that sometimes you get to see a great movie. And sometimes you get to see several. The weekend we saw Paddington 2 we also went to pre-screenings of Ferdinand and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I was also invited to The Greatest Showman, and really wanted to see it, but I couldn’t do one more movie in such a short period of time. Also the smell of popcorn was no longer appealing at that point.
My Review of Paddington 2
I wasn’t sure about Paddington 2. I missed the first one and barely remember the books. Also, I’m not a huge fan of live action mixed with CGI so my expectations weren’t that high. My daughter and her friend however, were super excited to see it.
They were right to be. It was wonderful. From the moment the movie started to the final credits, we were all captivated and even a little choked up.
Paddington 2 is the story of Paddington who lives with the Brown’s in London. Paddington loves the Browns, but misses his Aunt Lucy and decides since she can’t visit London, he will send her a pop-up picture book of London he found in his friend’s second-hand store. Of course, there’s more to the pop-up book than meets the eye and it is eventually stolen. Paddington enlists the help of his friends and new family in getting it back from the thief.
It’s a heckuva ride!
This is a movie the whole family will love. I don’t care if you’ve got older teens (my daughter and her friend are both 14), college students or 30 somethings, this is a wonderful movie everyone will love. It’s too bad it wasn’t released before the holiday break because this would have been a perfect movie to see.
Of all the movies we saw that weekend, hands down Paddington 2 was the favorite. In fact, the kids are looking forward to seeing it again when it is released.
