Rotten Tomatoes announced Monday that the coming-of-age movie—Greta Gerwig’s first as a director—has now become “the most reviewed film to ever remain at 100% on the Tomatometer.” In other words: Lots of critics are publishing their opinions on the story of Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson’s senior year of high school, and all of them are positive.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, 165 reviews for Lady Bird have run so far, and it still maintains its 100 percent fresh status. The previous record holder, Toy Story 2, had maintained the top seat since 1999 with 163 reviews.
