When I heard they were making a movie of this little guy I was only hoping they would give him the proper tribute and I must admit that they pretty much did a sweet good hearted little flick for almost all ages some mild gross humor here and there but that's about it other than that highly recomended full of sweet natured good hearted fun for all I say see it

Paddington, eine High Tech CGI Animation, beruhend auf den bekannten Märchen - ein Balance Akt, der beides sein muss: Modern und altmodisch zugleich. Paul King hat die Geschichten des Marmelade fressenden Bären aus Michael Bonds Kinderbüchern adaptiert. Zum ersten Mal treffen wir Paddington im hintersten Peru bei seinem Onkel und seiner Tante. Nun schickt seine Tante ihn von diesem dunklen Fleck der Erde nach London, dort wo man ihn willommen heissen wird. Angekommen, stellt Paddington fest, dass niemand in London amüsiert ist, einen sprechenden Bären zu treffen. Er erlebt ein typisches Migranten-Schicksal. Zum Glück aber nimmt ihn die warmherzige Mrs. Brown (Sally Hawkins) bei sich auf - während der Rest der Familie skeptisch bleibt. Paddington, ungeschickt wie er ist, findet aber …

A Standard for Today's Children's Films

I had no intention in seeing 'Paddington' based on the trailer. I thought it was another cash-grab movie based on name recognition of a children's brand. Boy was I wrong. 'Paddington' shows just how to take a literary character with minor popularity and make a worthwhile adaptation.

The humor, characters, and clever visual touches have a whimsy charm about them. This is especially true for Paddington himself. He's so likable and warmhearted that it becomes impossible to stop smiling. I like all of the small moments that …

A Surprisingly Clever Flick

Have you seen the trailers for that Paddington movie? Doesn’t it look crummy? IT looks like the Disney’s Country Bears movie if George Lucas vomited CGI all over it. The movie is kind of financially flailing domestically, and that seems at least partially due to the marketing massacre that was induced upon it. People have been avoiding it to some extent, and I can’t really blame them.

Paddington is not at all the movie that I though it was when I saw the trailers; it’s actually a legitimately funny and charming family film that is, in many ways, far superior to Disney’s latest super-popular animated efforts. If you have kids, this is almost a must-see; it’s the rare kids’ film that parents will laugh at just as much as their offspring.
