Make your life a little bearish

Two years ago around this time, I gave the first Paddington two unreserved thumbs up. You may read that review here: Paddington Movie Review.

Time has moved as it it wont to do, and it’s time for another Paddington film. While I’ve not seen it yet, I’ve no doubt I shall; why? Chiefly for two reasons:

  1. I loved the first one.
  2. I have an 11 year old daughter who adores teddy bears.

So as you can see this is a no-brainer for me. And that it again features Peter Capaldi (my favorite Doctor) is just icing on the (bear-shaped) cake.

 

Synopsis: Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

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.

Paddington 2 stars: Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Sally Hawkins (Jayne Eyre), Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia) and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown) as the voice of Paddington.
