The previous record holder was Toy Story 2, which had 163 reviews and a 100% Fresh rating.

This image released by A24 Films shows Saoirse Ronan in a scene from Lady Bird. She found out the news from her younger brother, who was "also slightly skeptical" that her film had bested an animated classic like Toy Story 2, she joked.

The movie, which initially opened with a limited US release earlier this month, has continued to win fans across the board, and on Monday, it surpassed Toy Story 2 to land the title of the film with the most consecutive “fresh” responses on the popular review site, with zero negative reactions. The movie now boasts a rare 100% score with 173 reviews and counting on an average rating of 8.9/10. The high rating maintained over the number of reviews make "Lady Bird" the best-reviewed movie of all time on the site.

"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 said to Rotten Tomatoes.

Other movies with a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes include Citizen Kane, Singin' in the Rain, Seven Samurai and Twelve Angry Men.


Even Armond White, the known contrarian who destroyed Toy Story 3′s ideal score couldn't help but applaud Lady Bird, admitting that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching". The film has been making steady inroads into the awards season, bagging trophies at the Gotham Awards and finding a spot on the National Board of Review's top ten films of 2017 list.

Gerwig added that the cast and crew are "using the tomato emoji more than [they] ever thought possible".

Lady Bird is now playing in select theaters.

Originally released in just two cities, "Lady Bird" expanded to theaters nationwide November 24.
