PADDINGTON 2 Usurps CITIZEN KANE As The Top-Rated Movie On Rotten Tomatoes

After a negative review of Citizen Kane from 80 years ago resurfaced, the classic movie dropped to 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, and that makes Paddington 2 the top-rated movie on the website. Check it out...

Everyone loves the Paddington movies, but who knew they were this highly regarded? Citizen Kane has been the top-rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes for a long time with a huge number of positive verdicts from critics pulled from the past eight decades. However, after a negative review resurfaced, the classic title has dropped from 100% to 99%. 

As you can see below, an eighty-year-old review from the Chicago Tribune’s Mae Tinée with the headline "'Citizen Kane' Fails to Impress Critic as Greatest Ever Filmed' was responsible for this change in score, and it's had some unexpected consequences. 

Now, Paddington 2 has earned the accolade of being the top-rated release on Rotten Tomatoes, and based solely on reviews, that essentially makes it the greatest movie ever made! It has 100% based on 244 reviews, and a Critics Consensus that reads: "Paddington 2 honors its star's rich legacy with a sweet-natured sequel whose adorable visuals are matched by a story perfectly balanced between heartwarming family fare and purely enjoyable all-ages adventure."

This is a big win for the Paddington franchise, and something we have to imagine will factor into the marketing campaign for Paddington 3 (which is officially in the works). 

Sorry, Citizen Kane; you're no match for a Marmalade sandwich loving bear...
