I find it almost impossible to believe that anybody with any heart, or soul, could give this anything less than 5 stars, personally I’d give it 10. Rarely have I anticipated, and then been rewarded, with such a delight, (and I’m a cynical 61 year old). The execution of the storyline, the animation of Paddington, the performance of Ben Whishaw in voicing him and Hugh Grant’s self deprecating, and brilliant, performance all combine to make this a wonderful experience. Even the smaller parts are executed with a wonderful exuberance, Sanjeev Bhasker’s calling the bear “Puddington” being a fine example. I’ve now watched this 3 times in a fortnight and throughly enjoyed every viewing, absolutely wonderful.
