Lady Bird Just Got The Best Rotten Tomatoes Score In History — But These Fan Favorite Movies Are Rated
1999's Toy Story 2 originally made the record with 163 Fresh reviews. With so many reviews, even a critically beloved movie is bound to come up with at least one or two dissenters (or someone like Armond White, who believes it's his job to play the contrarian).
It's a real shame that we have to wait until February to see this movie in Ireland. And today, Lady Bird - Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age film circa 2002 starring Saoirse Ronan - sets the new standard with 164 Fresh reviews (and counting).
A new indie movie about a teenager's love-hate relationship with her hometown has passed an animated tale about talking toys to become the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's also worth noting that Rotten Tomatoes' scores for classic films such as 1972's The Godfather (99% with 84 "Fresh" reviews) and 1941's Citizen Kane (100% on just 75 reviews) are culled from far fewer critics' reviews than newer films. Perhaps Rotten Tomatoes will bring more attention to individual movie reviews, or spotlight well-deserving movies like Lady Bird that will likely fly under the radar of the larger moviegoing public.

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true".
Gerwig's directorial debut is the most popular film on the movie review site and has garnered a 100 percent rating since its release on November 3. Right now we're celebrating the moment, and Gerwig herself is singing.
