Lady Bird Earns Highest Rotten Tomatoes Score Since Toy Story 2

Adjust Comment Print

As of early Tuesday morning, "Lady Bird", starring Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, still had a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 170 "fresh" reviews.

Instead, it's a coming-of-age tale about a teenage girl who has a tense relationship with her mother.

Here's some perspective: Before "Lady Bird" earned its 164th consecutive positive review on Monday, the Rotten Tomatoes title was held by "Toy Story 2", an animated crowd-pleaser released in 1999.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune's technology newsletter. Rotten Tomatoes has a new favorite film. Even Armond White, a known contrarian who tanked Toy Story 3's ideal score, was forced to bow to Lady Bird's supremacy, acquiescing that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".

Black Friday Is Mutating
Conversion rates on tablets grew to 6.4%, up 8.0% year-over-year and rates on desktop grew to 7.1%, up 7.6% year-over-year. Older millennials - a group pegged at age 25 to 34 - was especially profligate over the weekend.


Lady Bird simply has the most positive reviews of any movie with a ideal, 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Anyway, it's now had 170 reviews, and they've all been positive, making it the best-reviewed movie on the site, ever. Still, even with all those positive reviews, its overall rating was 8.3 out of 10.

It's also worth noting that Rotten Tomatoes' scores for classic films such as 1972's The Godfather (99% with 84 "Fresh" reviews) and 1941's Citizen Kane (100% on just 75 reviews) are culled from far fewer critics' reviews than newer films.

Since its November 3 release, Lady Bird has made more than $10 million, despite having played in only 800 or so theaters nationwide.
