'Lady Bird' kicks 'Toy Story 2' to the Rotten Tomatoes curb

Lady Bird Just Got The Best Rotten Tomatoes Score In History — But These Fan Favorite Movies Are Rated

This all should be taken with the caveat that Rotten Tomatoes is not the be-all-end-all of movie criticism - though plenty has been said about that - but there's no denying that the review aggregator site has become a huge audience and box office influencer.

According to critics, Lady Bird is a flawless movie. On Monday, though, Lady Bird set a new Rotten Tomatoes record: With 170 positive reviews (and counting), Lady Bird is now the most-reviewed film to hold a 100 percent rating on the site.

The 23-year-old nabbed the Best Actress gong at the Independent Filmmaker Project's 27th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in NY. Perhaps Rotten Tomatoes will bring more attention to individual movie reviews, or spotlight well-deserving movies like Lady Bird that will likely fly under the radar of the larger moviegoing public. Walt Disney's Thor: Ragnarok actually has 277 "Fresh" reviews this year, along with 24 "Rotten" reviews, for an overall score of 92%, while fellow indie film The Big Sick received 233 positive reviews, and a score of 98%, earlier this year. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.

Other movies with a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes include Citizen Kane, Singin' in the Rain, Seven Samurai and Twelve Angry Men.

Lady Bird is not the top movie of all time on the site, but none of the movies with a ideal score ahead of Lady Bird have received as many positive reviews.

Gerwig added that the cast and crew are "using the tomato emoji more than [they] ever thought possible". The film has been making steady inroads into the awards season, bagging trophies at the Gotham Awards and finding a spot on the National Board of Review's top ten films of 2017 list. "Without lettings its strings show or veering into bald-faced sentimentality, Lady Bird breaks the heart and lifts the spirit in miraculous ways".
