Rotten Tomatoes announced the new record, saying: "Toy Story 2 originally made the record with 163 Fresh reviews, and today, Lady Bird. sets the new standard with 164 Fresh reviews (and counting)".

Now Lady Bird, which released in the United States on November 3 has knocked it off the top spot with 170 positive reviews compared to Toy Story 2's 163. Till date, only such movies as The Work, Dawson City: Frozen Time, Faces Places, Truman, The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (Hymyilevä Mies) out of 100 movies have earned the ideal rating this year. Upon learning of its record-breaking feat on Rotten Tomatoes, Gerwig expressed her appreciation and disbelief via an interview with the popular review aggregation site.

"This is completely awesome and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird", Gerwig told Rotton Tomatoes. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.

With all that we have at our fingertips, it's all the more important that we don't waste our time on content we don't like, and Rotten Tomatoes has been crucial in making that easier for us. "She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her - loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated".

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

Victor winner! Both Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet picked up awards at IFP's 2017 Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday (November 27) in New York City. The rating is still up as 100 percent but the big test is yet to come: it will be released in the United Kingdom - the spiritual home of the quirky comedy - on 16 February. The website's ratings are said to have an effect on whether a new film will become a box office hit or a bomb.

Lady Bird is now the best-reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes!
