more than enough adult humour to keep the guardians entertained. Irish Independent
It takes a bear to catch a thief.
The action-packed sequel to 2014’s Paddington will see many original cast members return and introduce new members Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson.
A sure-footed, sweet-natured family comedy which isn’t set at Christmas, but which glows with so much warmth and fun that it might well be a staple of festive television for years to come. TheWrap
Another near-pawfect family entertainment, honoring the cozy, can-do spirit of Bond’s stories while bringing them smoothly into a bustling, diverse 21st-century London – with space for some light anti-Brexit subtext to boot. Variety
