True, a lot of marmalade gets spread around, and at times the zaniness gets a bit too slap-sticky, but itís all good clean fun. Read full review
(Peter Keough, Boston Globe)
Paddington is a harmless delight that blends live action with animated technology in the manner of Ted, but without the raunch.
(Rex Reed, New York Observer)
Affectionately honoring the everyday quirks of Bondís stories, while subtly updating their middle-class London milieu, Kingís film may divide loyal Paddingtophiles with its high-stakes caper plot, but their enraptured kids wonít care a whit.
(Guy Lodge, Variety)
In stark contrast to their furry, blundering star, the makers of Paddington have colored so carefully inside the lines that any possibility of surprise or subversion is effectively throttled.
(Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times)
