Hi, just a quick post with my latest family movie review.
Paddington 2 was fun.
The characters were certainly entertaining and not super over the top. Hugh Grant was great as a washed up actor who couldn't get a gig other than a dog commercial - which would be a pretty good gig in my book. Rufff!
There's an unspoken little love story which you should be aware of. Two supporting actors (the sarge and the newspaper lady) realize they like each other. After that, they are always together - including looking out the window in the morning together. Hmm. Did they get married that quickly? That's what my story is if anyone asks. The truth is, it is left to the imagination.
The credits scene is not really left to the imagination. On movie night at the Bass house, we will be skipping it. A full four minutes of jailhouse musical comedy is way too much time for sly crude jokes.
With those in consideration, the story of Paddington 2 is actually cleaner than most. There were more "potty jokes" in the Sherlock Gnome trailer than the entire Paddington Movie.
