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

Lady Bird Just Got The Best Rotten Tomatoes Score In History — But These Fan Favorite Movies Are Rated

On Monday, though, Lady Bird set a new Rotten Tomatoes record: With 170 positive reviews (and counting), Lady Bird is now the most-reviewed film to hold a 100 percent rating on the site. Reviews come from major newspapers as well as online sites dedicated to film.

As Lady Bird's mother, Marion, says during an especially heated living room argument: "Whatever we give you, it's never enough!"

A new indie movie about a teenager's love-hate relationship with her hometown has passed an animated tale about talking toys to become the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film stars Saoirse Ronan as Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson's during her senior year of high school in Sacramento. Rotten Tomatoes wields a power over audience perception of movies that is unprecedented, and while many a study has been conducted to prove that this doesn't extend to box office impact, that's likely not the case. It's already a hit in limited release, having earned $10 million from just 791 theaters, and that lays a very clear path forward for its Oscar chances.

The film is Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, which makes the Rotten Tomatoes' feat all the more impressive.

Gerwig said: "We put our hearts and souls into this movie, and the last step of this deeply collaborative art form of film-making is giving the film to the audience and the film critics". That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.

Dubbed "the new Meryl Streep", Saoirse won for her role in new flick Lady Bird - which is enjoying record breaking reviews.

“Thank you to everyone who has seen the film and has written about it so thoughtfully.

And as Lady Bird emphatically responds: "It is enough!"
