Saoirse Ronan's Lady Bird tops Rotten Tomatoes rating

'Lady Bird' sets record for highest approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes

Of course, a 100% fresh rating doesn't actually make Lady Bird the best movie of all-time on Rotten Tomatoes, an honor which goes to The Wizard of Oz, now at 99% Fresh thanks to a poor review from New Republic, but a higher overall score of 9.4 compared to Lady Bird's 8.9.

The movie reviews aggregator said this week that Lady Bird, the coming-of-age film released November 3, has topped 1999's Toy Story 2 (Pixar) as the film with more positive reviews and zero negative reviews (so far) than any other movie on the website. The New York Times described Ronan as 'one of the most formidable actors in movies today' in their review of the title.

Some other movies who have achieved a ideal score with over 100 reviews are 2008's Man on Wire and 2016's Things to Come.

Indie actor Greta Gerwig's directorial debut is earning rave reviews for her striking female coming-of-age story, Lady Bird.

Longing to leave for the bright lights of the East Coast, self-titled Lady Bird gets into a spot of trouble as she navigates the murky waters of familial relationships and battles with her volatile emotions.

According to reports, English emailed staff to welcome them back from the Thanksgiving break and signed off as "Acting Director". The law says the agency's deputy director shall "serve as the acting Director in the absence or unavailability of the Director".

Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan as the titular character and so far the film has made close to $11 million in just a few weeks in North America.

Rotten Tomatoes has somewhat become the go-to movie review site though it shouldn't be "considered the end-all/be-all for film criticism", as Forbes said. Thank you to everyone who has seen the film and has written about it so thoughtfully.

Gerwig has won the Rare Pearl Award at the Denver International Film Festival while Saoirse Ronan won Best Actress at the Gotham Awards.

She added, "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".
