Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "PADDINGTON is sweet and silly and, at times, edge-of-the-seat stuff." - 12/01/2014 Total Film


"[T]horoughly endearing....With the effects warmly recalling the old-school animatronic work of Jim Henson." - 11/19/2014 Variety


"[Q]uite charming, thoughtful and as cuddly as a plush toy, albeit one with a few modern gizmos thrown in..." - 11/19/2014 Hollywood Reporter


5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie." - 11/21/2014 Empire


"[D]elightful, wrapping the viewer in an enhanced story about one very polite bear who loves marmalade and has an endless talent for getting into trouble." - 01/15/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "An old-fashioned sensibility amid a modern setting juxtaposes cleverly here....And Paddington is always kind and exceedingly polite -- a lovely role model for young audience members." - 01/15/2015 USA Today

3 stars out of 4 -- "It's all very droll and quietly, memorably dazzling." - 01/14/2015 Rolling Stone
