The screenplay leaves a lot to be desired... Paddington could have used more looking after.
(Linda Cook, Quad City Times)
It is a film of considerable charm but one undermined by a very bitty and flimsy screenplay. Writer-director Paul King has more flair for comic set-pieces than he does for sustained narrative... If Paddington is to turn into a movie franchise, one suspects that marmalde sandwiches under hats and scenes of mayhem in kitchens and bathrooms won't be quite enough. Far more attention will need to be paid to the storytelling.
(Geoffrey MacNab, Independent)
