While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.
Animated Adventure Comedy - As with the first film, this is a family-targeted comedy/adventure
based on the beloved children's book and television bear character of
the title. The main cast of the first film, from Ben Whishaw as the
voice of Paddington Bear to Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville,
return, and this time Hugh Grant has the big showy villain part.
There are some comic moments of violence and some dry humor aimed at
adults, but overall parents will find this to be safe viewing for all
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Comic hits and falls with people and animals. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Chases on foot, bike, and train, with people and animals. COMEDY: Silly banter, wisecracks, slapstick, sight gags, often involving animals.
NY PostFull Review Very Good ...blissfully kind, funny and whip-smart. It's a perfect flick for families, but also a jolly time for anyone with a pulse. All of Paddington's failed gigs are hilarious, but the best is the go-getter as a barber wielding an overzealous electric razor.
Slant MagazineFull Review Very Good ...gloriously daffy absurdism of Paddington 2, a wilder, weirder, funnier, more heartfelt and eye-popping, and, above all, more fully realized representation of King's eccentric sensibility. Paul King's Paddington 2 profoundly believes in the harmonizing power of warmth, politeness, and the absurd.
