‘Paddington 2’ No Longer Perfect On Rotten Tomatoes After Negative Review – Deadline

Published

on

The backstory: Orson Welles’ 1941 classic Citizen Kane was once the 100% rated champion of Rotten Tomatoes. However, some crank added a negative review from 80 years ago, lowering its score to 99% on the website.

That made Paddington 2 the most positively reviewed film, with 245 reviewers praising it. But now, Paddington 2 has also had a negative review added, lowering it from a perfect 100%.

Harrison claimed his take was not new, saying he panned the film on a BBC Radio segment when it was released. No one has found that 2017 review.

The demotion of Paddington 2 leaves the drama Leave No Trace as the new #1 at 100% with 238 ratings. Directed by Debra Granik and starring Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie, the film was a Sundance hit back in 2018.

LUDHIANA: Following personal enmity over petty issues, a woman kidnapped 2.5 years daughter of her neighbour and buried her in a vacant plot in Salem Tabri area on Sunday afternoon. The police rescued the girl and rushed her to the DMC hospital; however the doctors declared her brought dead.
The deceased girl has been identified as Dilroze Kaur, of Shimlapuri who is daughter of a Punjab police constable Harpreet Singh, posted in 3rd IRB Battalion. The police have also arrested the accused woman, Neelam, 35 of the same locality.
Dilroze was playing outside her house when the accused woman kidnapped her and took along on her scooter.
Joint commissioner of police- city J. Elanchezhian said, “Neelam took Dilroze to the Salem Tabri area and buried the girl in a vacant plot. Meanwhile at around 3:15 when the family could not find Dilroze, they contacted the police. The police immediately reached the spot and started questioning people and also scanned the CCTVs installed in the locality. In CCTV Neelam was captured with Dilroze on her scooter. The police detained Neelam for questioning who confessed that she had buried the toddler in a vacant plot in Salem Tabri area. The police exhumed the girl and rushed her to hospital but she was declared dead.”
He added, “Neelam and Dilroze’s family had no big issue between them. Neelam got divorced in 2015 and since then she was living with her parents in Shimlapuri along with her two sons. At times the neighbouring kids fought with each other and had complained to Neelam against her sons. Neelam took it to heart. She started believing that everyone targets her and her children. Some time ago Neelam had an argument with Dilroze’s parents. To avenge it on Sunday when she saw Dilroze alone, she kidnapped her and buried in a vacant plot in Salem Tabri.”
