Lady Bird Is Now Rotten Tomatoes' Best-Reviewed Movie of All Time

29 November 2017, 01:00 | Clyde Nash



Director Greta Gerwig's solo directorial debut has a flawless 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes with 170 reviews, and counting. Previous record-holder Toy Story 2 has a 100 percent score as well, but with "only" 163 positive reviews.

It shares that achievement with classics including All About Eve, Seven Samurai, Citizen Kane, and more on the review aggregator site.

There are zero "Rotten" reviews against this film. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Gerwig called the movie's record-setting Rotten Tomatoes score "completely incredible and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird" in a statement to Rotten Tomatoes.

Facebook will tell users if they followed Russian pages
As many as 126 million people could have been served posts on Facebook and 20 million on Instagram, the company says. Russian interference is now known to be widespread, going beyond Facebook and affecting Twitter and Google as well.

With all that we have at our fingertips, it's all the more important that we don't waste our time on content we don't like, and Rotten Tomatoes has been crucial in making that easier for us. Gerwig also received critical acclaim for her efforts. So, yes, celebrate Lady Bird's success and root for it to earn those Oscar noms come 2018 - but remember, it's far from the only film of its kind that warrants this kind of love.

But I digress. It turns out that Lady Bird, which is, again, not about the former First Lady but is actually a comedy-drama about a teenaged girl who doesn't get along with her mother, is apparently really good. The other films to get a ideal Fresh rating on the Tomatometer were only reviewed a few times. Lady Bird beat Toy Story 2's 163 "Fresh" reviews on Monday and the new movie, which stars Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, now boasts 170 positive reviews from movie critics against absolutely zero negative reviews.
