I didn’t know a lot about Paddington bear, when I went to see the movie last night. It wasn’t part of my childhood. But my significant other is from Scotland and Paddington was a big part of his growing up. So I went into the movie with no clue what to expect. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The story was rich, heart-felt, and thoroughly entertaining. The most interesting thing was that the CGI was so good that after a few minutes you forgot you were watching a partially animated film. You just simply got swept away by the story. The way they gave a nod to the author in the movie was utterly charming. Sigh. We plan to go see it again. If you have kids, I cannot recommend this film enough. If you’re a kid at heart (like we are), GO! GO! GO! You will not be disappointed. Heads up to all the Whovians out there, the Doctor is in the film.
