    Synopsis


    Paddington
    Beloved bear Paddington gets the big-screen treatment in this family film adapted from Michael Bond's enduring children's book series. As the story opens, Peruvian bear Paddington (voice of Ben Whishaw) makes his way to the big city, where he quickly gets lost until being taken in by the benevolent Brown family. Meanwhile, as the curious cub settles into his new life of domestic bliss, a scheming museum taxidermist embarks on a personal mission to get him stuffed and mounted. Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, and Jim Broadbent star in a film featuring Peter Capaldi and Nicole Kidman. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      Having spent what were essentially the first five years of my life in England and my mothers side of the family holding strong roots in Great Britain there was always an affinity for British culture in our household. In those early years when my father was stationed in Mildenhall Paddington became a known personality-whether it be by his books or the large doll we had to play with. Seeing this sweet and innocent facade brought to life on the big screen with exuberance and such sweet joy not only transported me back to my own childhood, but gave me something to connect over with my own young daughter. The film itself contains a plot where you might see exactly where it's going, but it is the inherent charm that oozes from the performers, the humor and the sense of family between our core characters that comes through more than anything else.

      Wes Anderson for Children!

      The story might be a paint-by-numbers "Fish-out-of-water" tale. But beyond that, Paddington does everything right. And yes, it's really a Wes Anderson flick disguised as a children s book adaptation. It's all there: Technical precision (symmetry shots), offbeat (visual) humor and musical choices, (Even the film's score is Anderson-y), random anecdotes, a dollhouse shot, headgear fetish, family centered plot, and a general retro-vibe, make this one of the more interesting children's movies in years.

      I had promised my little one to take her to the theater to see it but didn't so I knew when it come out on sale it was time to purchase it. I was going to purchase it at Target but saw that Best Buy offered it with a watch. She loves her Paddington watch and as for the movie what can I say. Very good family movie. From Children to Adults will enjoy this family. Which in a way teaches us the value of family and togetherness, Paddington himself looked very real on our screen and we have a 4K TV. Never did we feel that he was animated. Recommend all the way.

      Being a Paddington Bear collector for many years, I went to see the movie when it was released. Over 80% of the people in the theater were adults. Paddington Bear looked and acted so real in the movie, it was very easy to imagine he was real. I just had to get the video when it was released. This is definitely a keeper that you just can't possibly get tired of. A real classic to be enjoyed over & over again. The other characters in Paddington Bear are true to the books & this is another reason why this movie is so enjoyable.

      I haven't read any of the Paddington books, but have seen the toy bears for sale for years. I love the story of an explorer discovering intelligent bears in Peru, teaching them to speak English, and a young bear travels to England when an earthquake destroys his home. An unwitting family takes him in and the adventures really begin, including an evil fem fatale (Nicole Kidman) & a curmudeonly neighbor (Peter Capaldi, the current Dr. Who), but the loving family teams together to outwit them.

      Paddington is the cutest little guy and this movie will really bring him to life for you! It was so much fun watching him get into all sorts of trouble, then flash that innocent face at someone as if to say, "What, did I do something wrong?" The human actors were enjoyable too, both the good guys and the villains alike. Blu-ray presentation was exceptional and my copy came with a nice storybook as an added bonus. Highly recommended!

      Bought this on a whim for my kids and the whole family loved it! Nicole Kidman plays a crazed taxidermist who is trying to kidnap Paddington. She's pretty hilarious, but I don't think the somewhat scary kidnapping scenes would work for kids younger than five or six. My youngest is five and he had a lot of questions about why someone who works in a museum would want to kill an animal to stuff it...

      i didn't have an opportunity to see this recent film in the theater so I purchased the DVD. I'm glad I did. The story of Paddington the bear has been told to generations of children. The DVD (movie) is very enjoyable and entertaining for both children and adults. Nicole Kidman takes on a different film role than she usually does, and that is a plus for this movie. highly recommend this DVD.
