Paul King did an amazing job on both, screenwriting and directing. The loving, non-cynical humor feels genuine and honest. Paddington 2 features a magical world, in which the magic happens in people's hearts, not in the mouth of a walking, talking, marmalade sandwich-munching bear.

    This is not a movie. This thing…

Et gab Zenen, wo ich mich bald an Popcorn verschluckt hab vorn Lachen. Außerdem is mir aufgefall'n, dat ich mein ersten richtichen Kuss au auf ner Party in nem Ruhrpottkeller hatte. Für sonne neural… nostalg… Späße wo de an früher denks, is Radio Heimat genau dat richtige! Nur dat mit den Radio hab' ich nich so richtich verstanden. Da war nur so'n ollen Kassettenrekorder.
