Lady Bird Is The Best Reviewed Movie of All Time (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

- -

[dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]t one point during Lady Bird Laurie Metcalf’s Marion tells her daughter (Saoirse Ronan) ” I just want you to be the very best version of yourself you can be”; well apparently it has done just that becoming the best-rated film in Rotten Tomatoes history.

Currently sitting at a perfect 100% on a whopping 170(!) reviews; Greta Gerwig’s coming of age tale has clearly resonated with critics far and wide. Here at Before The Cyborgs, we have referred to it as a triumphant debut for Gerwig as well as poignant and mature in tackling its themes.

One of only four movies on Rotten Tomatoes to garner unanimous approval over 100+ reviews (joining James March’s documentary Man On A Wire, Pixar’s Toy Story 2 and Mia Hansen-Løve’s Things To Come). Lady Bird becomes the best-reviewed film by virtue of having 170 positive reviews (and counting) versus 128 for Things To Come, 157 for Man on Wire and 163 for Toy Story 2.

As Lady Bird continues to expand to more locations, it will be interesting to see if it can maintain its impeccable approval rating but for right now congratulations are in order. So grab your best friend, turn on your favorite Dave Matthews Band song and party like its 2003!
