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

Saoirse Ronan's Lady Bird tops Rotten Tomatoes rating

Greta Gerwig has responded to Lady Bird becoming the best reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history.

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.

The movie's unprecedented success with reviewers since its premiere on September 1 has resulted in the dethroning of Rotten Tomatoes' previous highest-rated movie, Toy Story 2, which was released in 1999.

Ronan's performance has been highly praised, with many expecting a Best Actress nomination at this year's Academy Awards.

The rating has been aggregated through 170 reviews, mainly from Stateside critics where the film received a limited released earlier this month.

Some other movies who have achieved a flawless score with over 100 reviews are 2008's Man on Wire and 2016's Things to Come. It's overtaken Toy Story 2, which has a full-on spread of only positive reviews, but only 163 of them (that's seven fewer, maths fans).

The coming-of-age flick isn't the only film with 100%, but the more fresh reviews without getting a single rotten, the better the score.

"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", Gerwig told the website.

Love or hate it, Rotten Tomatoes has become a staple of film coverage in today's society.

"Lady Bird is nothing short of tremendous, a wise film about how two people deal with ambivalence", wrote Kyle Turner in his New York Film Festival review of the film for Paste.
