SM Dad writer: “Paddington 2 obviously has a cast that includes the likes of Hugh Grant, Julie Walters and Hugh Bonneville – so it’s was never going to be a bore to watch. Being in Leicester Square at 10.30am on a Sunday morning with two hyper-excited youngsters… well, that’s less fun.
If you haven’t seen Paddington 1 it doesn’t really matter to enjoying the plot of Paddington 2. If you HAVE seen Paddington 1 you might be surprised to hear that the ole bear ends up doing time at Her Majesty’s convenience. (I’ll admit I had a wee cry at the end…)
I’d really like to thank ThinkJam (who organised the screening) for NOT laying on loads of sugary treats which would render the kids even more unbearable; thankfully they stuck to popcorn and water and ergo we made it to the end of the film without a meltdown.”
PADDINGTON 2 is released in UK cinemas on 10 November 2017
