'Lady Bird' Becomes Best-Reviewed Movie In Rotten Tomatoes' History

Lady Bird Just Became Rotten Tomatoes Best Reviewed Film Ever

With 169 "Fresh" reviews and 0 "Rotten" reviews, Lady Bird has officially broken the review aggregator website's record for the best-reviewed movie. That honour was previously held by Toy Story 2. The New York Times described Ronan as 'one of the most formidable actors in movies today' in their review of the title.

Lady Bird will be released in cinemas in the United Kingdom on February 16.

Prince Harry's Friends Couldn't Stop Talking About Meghan Markle Engagement Announcement
Britain's Prince Harry poses with Meghan Markle in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, London, Britain, November 27, 2017. In recent months, they spoke publicly about their mother, Princess Diana, on the 20th anniversary of her death .

They weren't joking when they said "and counting", because it has since increased to 170, leaving a comfortable distance between Lady Bird and Toy Story 2.

There's an elite club of movies on Rotten Tomatoes that have earned a rating of 100 percent on the Tomatometer, indicating universal acclaim from critics.

Black Friday Background Checks Soar To Record High
Gun sales have generally risen during periods when lawmakers have indicated that they may take action to restrict gun ownership. Gun sales have slowed down this year after unusually strong demand around the presidential election a year ago .

Greta Gerwig's "love letter to Sacramento" is now the most-reviewed film ever to maintain a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie now boasts a rare 100% score with 173 reviews and counting on an average rating of 8.9/10.

Want more perspective? "Citizen Kane" also has 100% positive critical response, with a 9.4 rating, but only 75 reviews total.

Mum films terror scare while kids run around London's Oxford Street
During the incident, sections of Oxford Street were cordoned off and Black Friday shoppers were urged to take cover in shops. The British Transport Police said it believed there had been an altercation between two men on the platform before the scare.

Lady Bird is not the top movie of all time on the site, but none of the movies with a ideal score ahead of Lady Bird have received as many positive reviews. With this new Rotten Tomatoes record, the path forward for studio A24 (who won Best Picture previous year with Moonlight) is pretty clear, and I wouldn't be surprised if Lady Bird ended up with nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Saoirse Ronan), Best Supporting Actress (Laurie Metcalf), and Best Original Screenplay. On top of that, the movie has been a stellar box office success. Either way, use this as an excuse to go see Lady Bird immediately.
