Greta Gerwig Still Can't Believe Lady Bird's Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score

This honour, tallied by the esteemed film site's method of rating, is shared by several other films, such as Singin' In The Rain, Laura and The Philadelphia Story.

Lady Bird takes the record previously held by Toy Story 2, which has just the 163 "Fresh" reviews to its name.

Directed and written by Greta Gerwig, the coming of age tale about a girl in the 90s who wants to lose her virginity before college has been generating Oscar buzz, for leading star Saoirse too.

Lady Bird doesn't release in the United Kingdom until February, Lady Bird is nearly certified for awards glory in an upcoming couple of months with rumours of an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

When I first heard about the movie Lady Bird, I was a bit unimpressed.

While you're here. Why not watch the latest episode of The JOE Show with special guests Delorentos!

Want more perspective? "Citizen Kane" also has 100% positive critical response, with a 9.4 rating, but only 75 reviews total. In other words, it is still possible that a rogue reviewer could tarnish Lady Bird's flawless score, though the huge number of positive reviews the film has already compiled would still easily make it one of 2017's best-reviewed movies.

“This is completely unbelievable and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird, ” she tells Rotten Tomatoes. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true. The reasons why don't make any sense - if it's a great movie, why does it matter that a film's setting is high school, not the office, or that the protagonist is 16, not 60?

She added, "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".

Lady Bird is released in Irish cinemas on February 16, 2018.
