'Lady Bird' Sets Rotten Tomatoes Record, Sparks Oscar Best Picture Talk

Lady Bird doesn't release in the United Kingdom until February, but the Rotten Tomatoes Lady Bird score has certainly put the film at the top of my most anticipated films of next year and nearly a cert for awards glory in the upcoming couple of months.

The movie reviews aggregator said this week that Lady Bird, the coming-of-age film released November 3, has topped 1999's Toy Story 2 (Pixar) as the film with more positive reviews and zero negative reviews (so far) than any other movie on the website.

The rating has been aggregated through 170 reviews, mainly from Stateside critics where the film received a limited released earlier this month. That means none, zero, zilch, nada, rien, keine, sod bloody all negative reviews from those who have seen it thus far.

Dubbed "the new Meryl Streep", Saoirse won for her role in new flick Lady Bird - which is enjoying record breaking reviews.

However, Toy Story 2 has trumped all of those since it landed in 1999 - as it enjoyed a 100% fresh rating with the most reviews. It's hard to imagine how she could've made a better first impression.

Last night lead actor Saoirse Ronan picked up best actress at the Gotham Independent film awards adding to murmurs that the Oscars were on the cards for Lady Bird.

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true".

Previously, the best-reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history was none other than Toy Story 2, with a whopping 163 positive reviews. "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".

Lady Bird is released in Irish cinemas on February 16, 2018. Rotten Tomatoes has a new favorite film.
