The early reviews of the movie Lady Bird were fantastic, and that track record is holding up in unprecedented fashion. Slate points out that the movie written and directed by Greta Gerwig has just notched a record on Rotten Tomatoes. It had 170 reviews as of Tuesday afternoon and yet still maintained a 100% positive rating from critics. (Audiences were a little less kind, at 87%.) Other movies have a 100% rating, but none has achieved that rank with so many reviews. Now in second place is Toy Story 2, which has 163 reviews.

“This is completely amazing and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird,” Gerwig tells Rotten Tomatoes. "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible.” Here's the trailer for the movie, a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) in Sacramento. Laurie Metcalf plays her mother. (More Rotten Tomatoes stories.)
