Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined -until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rare talking bear catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. The film features an entirely computer-generated bear who interacts with a cast of esteemed actors.

We found out the history of Paddington Bear and his family in Peru. Nicole Kidman playing a villain again was fun. The special effects of the bear was great. He didn't look phoney you would almost think you were watching a real bear in some of the scenes.
All the actors especially the mother were great. She brought the fun and laughter. The whole family were great.
This is going to be a classic.
The movie opens and we see a bit of old footage showing a man by the name of Montgomery Clyde who is exploring Peru. He soon comes across two bears; and upon further realization he soon discovers that they not only can talk, but they also have taken a liking to the fruit preserve marmalade. Montgomery decides to name the bears Pastuzo and Lucy and years later Lucy and Pastuzo are shown to be taking care of their nephew. After Lucy later sends their nephew off to London, he is struggling to find shelter until a chance meeting with the Brown family changes everything.
I must admit I did not expect to enjoy Paddington as much as I did. Actor Ben Whishaw lends his vocal talents starring as Paddington and does a fabulous job voicing the bear.Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins portray Henry and Mary Brown, and Nicole Kidman gives Paddington an exceptional performance in her role as the antagonist Millicent Clyde.
The story in this movie is really well executed. As a movie, Paddington contains a child-like sense of humor, and an sly but lovable sense of adventure to go along with it. And to conclude, Paddington is a fantastic movie due to the acting (primarily Ben Whishaw and Nicole Kidman), the funny/adventurous story, and the direction of director Paul King. All in all, Paddington is

Not this one.
I feel they did a great job with this film. It wasnt too overly sugar coated or full of bells and whistles. It was just right. Cute comedy, warm hearted touching scenes with adventure and mischief. I honestly thought my kids wouldnt be interested in watching it (twin 7yr olds) but they were glued to the tv the whole time, giggling away and it kept me entertained as well. Very happy I purchased this, it went beyond my hopes for what I was expecting since everyone seems to be doing remakes/reboots of older children stories/movies and they flop, disappoint or just too overly done.
I had been wanting to get some new movies to enjoy with my kids and this one hit the spot. Looking to watch it many more times.
