'Lady Bird' Just Became Rotten Tomatoes's Most Popular Film of All Time

Posted November 30, 2017

The movie, which was released in the United States earlier this month, has achieved a 100 percent score from the aggregation site, and is the most reviewed film to have done so.

Greta Gerwig has responded to Lady Bird becoming the best reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history. About 87% of the audience rated it 3.5 stars or better.

Rotten Tomatoes announced the new record, saying: "Toy Story 2 originally made the record with 163 Fresh reviews, and today, Lady Bird. sets the new standard with 164 Fresh reviews (and counting)". A film can't be "certified fresh" unless it receives a 75% or higher average with 80 reviews or more for films in wide release, including five reviews from Top Critics. The A24 movie has received a 8.9/10 average critic rating, and is expected to be a strong contender at the Oscars next year - it's already been nominated for three Gotham Awards, including Best Actress, and four Film Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Actress and Best Feature.

"We put our heart and souls into this movie, and the last step of this deeply collaborative art form of filmmaking is giving the film to the audience and the film critics", Gerwig said.

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true".

Gerwig added that the cast and crew are "using the tomato emoji more than [they] ever thought possible".

It's a real shame that we have to wait until February to see this movie in Ireland.

Originally released in just two cities, "Lady Bird" expanded to theaters nationwide November 24.

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter.
