"Toy Story 2" is no longer the reigning champion at the review aggregator, ceding its title as the site's best reviewed movie of all time to this year's indie coming of age drama "Lady Bird". Lady Bird is now 46 on Rotten Tomatoes Top 100, sitting just below Toy Story 3 and just ahead of Toy Story 2, which it displaced as the most-reviewed movie at 100%. 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 flawless rating this year. The animation movie had gained 163 reviews holding the record for the first ideal score by Rotten Tomatoes. It's overtaken Toy Story 2, which has a full-on spread of only positive reviews, but only 163 of them (that's seven fewer, maths fans).

Longing to leave for the bright lights of the East Coast, self-titled Lady Bird gets into a spot of trouble as she navigates the murky waters of familial relationships and battles with her volatile emotions. It's hard to imagine how she could've made a better first impression.

"This is completely incredible and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird", Gerwig told Rotton Tomatoes. Thank you to everyone who has seen the film and has written about it so thoughtfully.

Lady Bird doesn't release in the United Kingdom until February, Lady Bird is nearly certified for awards glory in an upcoming couple of months with rumours of an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".

Lady Bird will be released in cinemas in the United Kingdom on February 16. Rotten Tomatoes has a new favorite film.
