The story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear that travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined; until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

I enjoyed this movie without having read the source material and once I got past the (stellar) cast lord grantham is married to the woman in that fish porn movie and their neighbor is dr who?! the mind boggles, but in a good way.

Kids are sure to love this one. I mean, who wouldn't love an adorable, talking, jam-devouring bear?

I still have the Paddington Bear I got in 1978 with its real little kid's Dunlop rubber boots. The original books and television series had a bit more emphasis on the bear trying to understand puzzling aspects of human society that we all take for granted but he was just as prone to mishaps. The bear family backstory seemed unnecessary but doesn't hurt, I suppose.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie, despite the backlash it has received for being too scary for younger audiences. It had just the right amount of sweetness, humour, bittersweet emotion and suspense that makes a family movie true to its name. Paddington is a bear who loves to eat marmalade and has spent his life hearing of the explorer whom his uncle met in his early years. But one day, an earthquake shakes his home in Darker Peru and his uncle dies, leaving our protagonist and his aunt alone. Paddington sets sail to London, where he hopes to find the explorer that once promised his uncle that his family would receive a warm welcome once they arrive. Upon arrival, he is unaware of where to go next and how to find the home he yearns for, and the Brown family takes him in for the time being. Little did they know that Paddington would become a real member of their family, and little does Paddington know that a taxidermist is on his tail! I truly do not understand why so many people had an issue with this movie; I think the taxidermist playing a villain role was intelligent, creative and original and taxidermy is a real problem that should be exposed to the public. Rating 4/5

"This is an anonymous phone call."
"Oh hello Mr. Curry."
"Uh, no it's Mr. err... Murry."
"Who is it dear?"
"It's Mr. Curry doing a funny voice."
