Paddington: Charming and Delightful- 100 Word Review

King’s Paddington, based on the cartoons, recounts the delightful adventures of Paddington Bear.

Paddington travels from Peru to London, searching for “home”. Here he befriends the Brown Family, but must avoid kidnap by the evil Taxidermist, Millicent.

This uncomplicated plot is brought to life with quirky storytelling and amusing performances. Whishaw’s Paddington is cheerful, sensitive and in good company with Bonneville’s lovingly exasperated patriarch, and Hawkin’s eccentric yet caring mother. Kidman’s two-dimensional villain is the weakest link.

As expected, Paddington’s quest for “home” ultimately leads back to where he started. However, despite predictability, Paddington is a simple, yet lovely, film

    I don’t know, I didn’t mind Kidman’s performance but please Nic stop getting work done. You’re beautiful just as you are. Bonneville looked in danger of being as annoying and plot derailing as he is in Downton Abbey but quickly came good. Charming is spot on Jo. I was not very excited to see this film following the trailer but found myself enjoying it in spite of my adult pretensions. I think that really comes down to getting the tone just perfect. Who knew the guy from Perfume would make such a lovable Paddington too.

  2. I liked Paddington himself but the human characters weren’t great.

  3. I like Paddington. This sounds like a fun movie, I’ll have to check it out. I usually prefer the cartoons over live action though. That doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make a good live action movie based on a cartoon; that’s just a matter of personal preference.
