Trivia

Goofs

The railway chase suffers from multiple errors: engine drivers have no control over where their train will go, even the most skilled of amateur drivers can't suddenly turn a family member into a burly stoker for a big hungry firebox, freight trains never commence their journey at platforms of London passenger termini, uncoupled vehicles will automatically brake to a halt, the couplings are American style instead of British, parallel tracks also have trains coming in the other direction, and buffers are very heavily built when a track ends next to a long drop into flowing water.

Quotes

Henry Brown: Would you excuse us a moment?
[flicks a switch]
Henry Brown: What are you doing?
Mary Brown: Talking to the nice men.
Henry Brown: Nice men? Mary, we can't trust these people. I mean look at them! Talk about a rogues' gallery. Hideous! And as for that bearded baboon in the middle, he's hardly got two brain cells to rub together.
Knuckles McGinty: We can still hear you, Mr Brown. That was the light you turned off. The microphone is on the other side. It's got 'microphone' written on it.

Somehow - and thankfully - as good as the first
13 November 2017 | by rogerdarlingtonSee all my reviews

I loved "Paddington" and - to my delight - I loved "Paddington 2" too.

Of course, we start with the adorable character created by Michael Bond (who died between the release of the two films), the brilliant CGI representation of our furry friend, and the purr-fect voicing by Ben Wishaw. This is such a British franchise with so very many British character actors (OK, and one Irish) and so many London locations, although this is the kind of gentle London that we saw in "Notting Hill" (most notably in the prison scenes). Indeed the villain this time is less threatening than Nicole Kidman's character in the first film and played brilliantly by the ever-so- English star of "Notting Hill", Hugh Grant, who - following his success in "Florence Foster Jenkins" - shows that he is not just a pretty face.

The film is endlessly inventive, not least in bringing to life a pop-up book of London landmarks which is at the heart of the plot, and it is stuffed full of visual gags as well as so many funny lines, a few aimed at adult viewers rather than little ones. My granddaughter (almost seven) found it delightful with one of her favourite scenes being Paddington's window-cleaning efforts. Be sure to stay for the credits - a final delight in 100 happy minutes.
