Lady Bird Earns Highest Rotten Tomatoes Score Since Toy Story 2

"Lady Bird

As of this writing, Lady Bird is "certified fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes with a 100 percent score made up of an astonishing 170 positive reviews and not a single negative one.

The previous record holder was 1999′s "Toy Story 2", which held a 100 percent score after 163 reviews.

Move over, Toy Story 2.

"It's wonderful", Gerwig told Vanity Fair, adding that her younger brother had told her the news and even he was "slightly skeptical" that her film had beat the animated movie. Gerwig called the movie's record-setting Rotten Tomatoes score "completely awesome and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird" in a statement to Rotten Tomatoes.

Greta Gerwig has responded to Lady Bird becoming the best reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history. For instance, only seven films on Rotten Tomatoes' Top 100 Movies of 2017 list have earned the flawless rating at all. The more positive "fresh" reviews from critics, the higher a film's Rotten Tomato rating will be.

At that point, Weinstein "pulled Kadian closer and groped her breasts" according to the suit, despite the plaintiff's protests. The case could have major consequences for Weinstein because several of his alleged assaults on actresses occurred overseas .

"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 to Rotten Tomatoes. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.

"It's unbelievable", she told Vanity Fair at the Gotham Awards red carpet on Monday night.

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

So what is Lady Bird?

In the case of Gerwig's Lady Bird, it was given a wide release and thus had to adhere to that higher standard, which it leapt over with grace.
