| Practically perfect Paddington production
I was an unexpected fan of the first Paddington movie, walked into it expecting not to enjoy it, but I was proved wrong. When I heard that a sequel was coming, I just hoped it would retain the magic of the first and it did, with a cherry on top! This movie invoked the inner child within me and was just a perfect viewing experience for this time of the year.

The casting was genius, featuring many well known British actors, in roles big and small. It was like a gathering of all the best of British, all having the best of time together. A huge hats off to Hugh Grant, pure brilliance!

The imagination that went into this movie and the skill that managed to put this across to the audience was second to none! You will find yourself being absorbed into this world and will not want to leave. I've read some people complaining that this isn't what London is like today, but this is exactly how London was in my childhood mind, where fantasy and reality met. Don't let go of your imagination, suspend reality and just enjoy.

I cannot recommend this movie highly enough. You will laugh and you will cry. Go see it, on your own, with your partner or with you family, you won't be disappointed.

Quotes

Henry Brown: Would you excuse us a moment?
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 ...


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.


Crazy Credits

In the first part of the end credits, there is a scrapbook which features the achievements of Aunt Lucy and the other main characters shortly after the events in the film.


Alternate Versions

Sanjeev Bhaskar says that three different endings were written. They shot two of them, and then these were combined for the released version of the film.
