I enjoyed Paddington very much. It's funny, intelligent and the animation/special effects are tasteful and create a believable new world. My personal fav Sally Hawkins is endearing. Recommended for kids AND adults.

I don't care what others have said about this movie. I liked it. Yes, it attempts to recreate a great kid's book and it goes over the top sometimes, but the cast is strong, the acting superb. It may have a low energy level, but smaller tykes (and some bigger ones) will like it. Just watch and enjoy.

As an adult viewer I felt that there were many important themes within the storyline of a cute bear and a search for home in a new city. There are themes to do with loss of home and family, historical references to the evacuation of children from central areas to the countryside in Britain during WWII, ideas and concerns relating to refugees and immigration in general, and also the perpetual conflict of wildness and risk versus safety and security. The film was touching and dealt with the dilemma of keeping the family protected and secure while considering how adventure and challenges enhance life experience. Adaptability and flexibility provide this family with new experiences, new skills and a brand new meaning of family.

With the overwhelmingly positive response from critics, I put aside the first impression I got of PADDINGTON from the trailers. Boy, was that a bad move. I should have trusted my gut. It was a weird and slightly jarring take, too immature to be entertaining to adults but not written with the younger generation in mind. It was a film without a target audience. With a thirty-five year gap between my mother and my younger sister, I expected that at least one of them would take to it, but neither deemed it very interesting. It feels trite and boring in comparison to some of the family flicks they produce today. Unfortunately, I feel they missed the mark with PADDINGTON, not just tonally but with the overall story, and so, I can't recommend it to anyone.

Not as good as I thought it would be. The ending was a disappointment.

Very entertaining and unexpectedly hilarious! Still smiling at its delightful charm and fantastic humour. For all ages, and definitely worth a few extra steps to the juvenile DVD collection.

Wonderful family film with genuine laughs and sweet tears as well. Will teach your kids a lot about the true meaning of family and being kind to others. The only caveat is Nicole Kidman - why oh why?? Loved Hugh Bonneville in his VERY non-Downton Abbey role! Certainly would watch it again - and we don't have kids!

"Uh, no it's Mr. err... Murry."
"Who is it dear?"
"It's Mr. Curry doing a funny voice."
