Paddington 2 Story: Paddington takes up odd jobs in order to pay for a gift for his aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, which lands him in all sorts of trouble.

Paddington 2 Review: Picking up after the first film, Paddington has now become a member of the Brown family and is well integrated into their neighborhood. For his aunt’s 100th birthday, he sets his heart on a pop-up book but as he can’t afford it, the little bear takes up window-washing to make some money. Setting the film in motion, the book gets stolen and Paddington is wrongly framed for the robbery ending up in prison. Paddington and his family now need to clear his name and catch the real thief.

As plots go, this is as simple as they come but don’t let that fool you as this film has a lot to offer. To begin with, the ensemble cast features some of the best actors in the UK, along with cameos from a number of familiar faces. They are all clearly having fun in a film where hamming it up is more than welcome, although Hugh Bonneville as Henry Brown has the most scene-stealing moments. Once Paddington goes to prison, we’re introduced to a bevy of odd characters. Brendan Gleeson as Knuckles McGinty – the prison cook, is particularly hot-tempered and grizzly but Paddington’s interactions with him are absolutely delightful. Amongst all the talent, Hugh Grant ends up being the most versatile of the lot, donning various personas as Phoenix Buchanan – an actor way past his prime, and with a hidden agenda. Of course, none of this would work without Ben Whishaw whose voice acting as Paddington reconfirms why he’s perfectly suited for the role.

Writer-director Paul King draws a lot of inspiration from Wes Anderson’s works in this film’s cinematography with symmetrical framing and vivid color palettes. The animation is top-notch with some awe-inspiring sequences that celebrate King’s version of London. Sure there are a lot of illogical and convenient series of events but they don’t seem out of place in a world where it’s perfectly normal for a talking bear to be accepted by society. Besides the hilarious slapstick comedy, ‘Paddington 2’ really excels in conveying its messages about accepting outsiders and always looking for the good in people. This sequel is funnier, more charming and heartwarming than the original; one you’ll enjoy tremendously, with or without kids in tow. Make sure you stay behind for the credits!
