Paddington is back and trying to raise money through odd jobs to buy a present for Great Aunt Lucy – what could go wrong?!

In this live-action sequel to the much-loved 2014 film, Paddington is searching for the perfect present for Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. He spots a unique pop-up book in Mr Gruber’s antique shop and, to earn the money, takes on a series of odd jobs, with the inevitable hilarious mishaps. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief…
(2017 UK / France 103 mins)

This splendid sequel, like the first, shows that you can make a brilliant film by doing simple things very, very well … It’s cute, but not twee. It’s for all ages, but jokes aren’t divided into kid-friendly and ‘for the grown-ups’. It mostly makes fun of circumstances, not people. There’s so much warmth to it and not a hint of cruelty. There are wonderful sequences of physical comedy, with Paddington like an ursine Charlie Chaplin, messing up a haircut, washing windows with his entire furry being, or doing the laundry in prison and turning everyone’s uniforms pink … Paddington 2 is every bit as enchanting as the first, perhaps even more so, but it feels arbitrary to pick a winner. The film is a pure delight, as sweet and sharp as, well, marmalade, really.  Olly Richards, Empire
