Daddy and I went to see Paddington 2. No spoilers here. He he he.
It was laugh out loud funny in one moment … and sweet sentimental tears in the next. Paddington 2 was everything we had hoped it would be … and then some.
Okay – one spoiler – the toothbrush. Bleck!! What Paddington does will make you cringe and cry and pucker and spit, probably in that order.
