    I watched Paddington Bear back on pinwheel on nick in the 80s. Loved pinwheel. Anyways they were tame fun stories kids could enjoy.

    Can't have that in hollywood so here is paddington eating his own ear wax and drinking from the toilot. Enjoy.

    PS: the carry dog scene was the only thing that really worked in this trailer. The rest was ren and stimpy and dennis the menace in a bear suit!

    I......

    I'm not gonna bother ranting about this... although I must ask: does Hollywood use ******ed babies as test subjects for these gross adaptations of smart works?

    Wow. I don't think I've ever seen a studio completely miss the point of something so utterly. It's like no one involved even knew what movie they were making.

    I saw a clip of this on a TV at the cinema, it was Paddington looking from a bag or a box then fade to black, I thought this would the usual family friendly whimsical boring movie, this looks equally worse.

    Time once again for the "Family Friendly Adaptation" cinematic checklist!

    *Low-grade CGI? Check.
    *Celebrities who should have something better to do? Check.
    *Updating to modern times to insert random cameos and/or product placement? Check.
    *Gross bathroom humor? Check
    *Just read the damn book(s)? CHECK.

    Wow. This is the kind of shit that would give Straxus or Tarn nightmares.

    I mean, look, they're bad guys.. But this is pure evil.

    Holy shit, an outright bastardization of Dr. Seuss-movie-levels. I mean, I know people always complain when Hollywood changes something for an adaptation, but that's almost a deliberate attempt as ruining the character.

    What's really sad is, I remember Mad TV's Claymation Cops bit with Paddington being about ten times more lowbrow and STILL way funnier than this.
