Saoirse Ronan's Lady Bird tops Rotten Tomatoes rating

Perfect

Lady Bird beat Toy Story 2's 163 "Fresh" reviews on Monday and the new movie, which stars Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, now boasts 170 positive reviews from movie critics against absolutely zero negative reviews.

This honour, tallied by the esteemed film site's method of rating, is shared by several other films, such as Singin' In The Rain, Laura and The Philadelphia Story.

However, Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, now playing in USA cinemas, has surpassed Toy Story's 163 glowing reviews.

The coming-of-age story by writer and director Greta Gerwig has knocked Toy Story 2 off the top spot on the aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes.

The film follows Saoirse Ronan as Lady Bird as she navigates the transition from teenhood to adulthood, as she struggles to live in her generic hometown.

While you're here. Why not watch the latest episode of The JOE Show with special guests Delorentos!

And, to be fair, there are other movies that have more positive reviews than Lady Bird. It's overtaken Toy Story 2, which has a full-on spread of only positive reviews, but only 163 of them (that's seven fewer, maths fans).

Lady Bird doesn't release in the United Kingdom until February, but the Rotten Tomatoes Lady Bird score has certainly put the film at the top of my most anticipated films of next year and nearly a cert for awards glory in the upcoming couple of months.

"This is completely fantastic and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird", Gerwig said.

But I digress. It turns out that Lady Bird, which is, again, not about the former First Lady but is actually a comedy-drama about a teenaged girl who doesn't get along with her mother, is apparently really good. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true. The film comes from actress Greta Gerwig, who wrote and directed the flick, and with all the rave reviews it's getting, it's very possible that this could be an Oscar contender for next year.

The film is due for Irish release on February 16th, 2018.

Previously, Gerwig gained notice for co-writing and starring in the 2013 film Frances Ha and the 2015 release Mistress America, and she also recently made appearances in the movies 20th Century Women and Jackie as a performer.
