Trivia

In the Paddington's scrapbook, in the section devoted to Aunt Lucy's birthday, there are bear-related puns in the theatre tickets for "Bearfoot in the Park" and "Macbearth". See more »

Goofs

Phoenix seems to fall for Henry's home inspection ruse far too easily. In reality, he would've expected some prior notification of an inspection, plus he shows no suspicion as to how the Browns got into his house in the first place, nor why they didn't attempt contact at the door like any other visitors.

Practically perfect Paddington production
20 November 2017 | by ramonster_ukSee all my reviews

I was an unexpected fan of the first Paddington movie, walked into it expecting not to enjoy it, but I was proved wrong. When I heard that a sequel was coming, I just hoped it would retain the magic of the first and it did, with a cherry on top! This movie invoked the inner child within me and was just a perfect viewing experience for this time of the year.

The casting was genius, featuring many well known British actors, in roles big and small. It was like a gathering of all the best of British, all having the best of time together. A huge hats off to Hugh Grant, pure brilliance!

The imagination that went into this movie and the skill that managed to put this across to the audience was second to none! You will find yourself being absorbed into this world and will not want to leave. I've read some people complaining that this isn't what London is like today, but this is exactly how London was in my childhood mind, where fantasy and reality met. Don't let go of your imagination, suspend reality and just enjoy.

I cannot recommend this movie highly enough. You will laugh and you will cry. Go see it, on your own, with your partner or with you family, you won't be disappointed.
