I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
My only real memory of Paddington Bear from my childhood was seeing some books on a shelf with him on the cover and a recurring advert for Marmite in which he gave some Marmite sandwiches to some birds which they immediately regurgitated (fascinating advertising strategy!).
Therefore I had no idea what to expect from the movie. What I got was some pretty decent slapstick and a heart-warming tale of a bear trying to find a home. Pretty standard kid’s movie then.
However, add in a completely insane Nicole Kidman as an evil taxidermist and a few brilliantly funny lines and you have yourself a memorable flick.
I had fun with this movie and I think you will to if you share a film with your kids.
Here’s my review: “Paddington”
