Lady Bird’ is a witty heartbreaking revelation

According to Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 2" - released in 1999 - set the record with 163 Fresh Reviews. With so many reviews, even a critically beloved movie is bound to come up with at least one or two dissenters (or someone like Armond White, who believes it's his job to play the contrarian).

Does that mean Lady Bird is now objectively the best movie of all-time?

They weren't joking when they said "and counting", because it has since increased to 170, leaving a comfortable distance between Lady Bird and Toy Story 2.

Greta Gerwig's "love letter to Sacramento" is now the most-reviewed film ever to maintain a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. For instance, only seven films on Rotten Tomatoes' Top 100 Movies of 2017 list have earned the flawless rating at all.

There's an elite club of movies on Rotten Tomatoes that have earned a rating of 100 percent on the Tomatometer, indicating universal acclaim from critics.

The film is Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, which makes the Rotten Tomatoes' feat all the more impressive. "We put our heart and souls into this movie, and the last step of this deeply collaborative art form of filmmaking is giving the film to the audience and the film critics".

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true". For perspective, Citizen Kane, a film often mentioned in Greatest of All Time lists, is also at 100%, but with only 75 reviews.

Just last night, Ronan received an award for Best Actress at the IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards for her role in Lady Bird. Either way, use this as an excuse to go see Lady Bird immediately.

In the case of Gerwig's Lady Bird, it was given a wide release and thus had to adhere to that higher standard, which it leapt over with grace.
