When it was revealed this weekthat Greta Gerwig's superb Lady Bird had become the best-reviewed movie in Rotten Tomatoes history, I didn't feel excited, or even surprised.

This honour, tallied by the esteemed film site's method of rating, is shared by several other films, such as Singin' In The Rain, Laura and The Philadelphia Story.

Lady Bird is now on top of the highest rated list of movies with the most reviews on Rotten Tomatoes beating 1999's Toy Story 2, which has 163 Fresh reviews.

Gerwig's directorial debut is also tipped for Oscar nominations, including a nod for twice-nominated Saoirse.

The film in question is the Saoirse Ronan-starring indie comedy-drama, Lady Bird.

As reported by IndieWire, the film is certified 100% fresh with 170 critic reviews.

Some other movies who have achieved a ideal score with over 100 reviews are 2008's Man on Wire and 2016's Things to Come.

The movie has a 100% rating from 164 critics. That honour was previously held by Toy Story 2.

Since its November 3 release, Lady Bird has made more than $10 million, despite having played in only 800 or so theaters nationwide. It's hard to imagine how she could've made a better first impression.

She added, "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible". We've had a lot of biopics lately, so why release one about former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson the same month as the Woody Harrelson-led LBJ? The film joins just five others that have earned a ideal Rotten Tomatoes score this year: Faces Places, Jane, The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki, Truman and Bright Lights.
