Review:
Oh, comic bliss. British wit and actor Stephen Fry's performance of Michael Bond's beloved children's book is a tour-de-force performance, not to be missed by Paddington fans, young and old. Every character and all the humor in this classic are vividly drawn as Fry brings to laugh-out-loud life each delightful misadventure of the little Bear from Darkest Peru-with the curiously effective "hard stare" and a penchant for marmalade-who turns cozy English society topsy-turvy when he's adopted by the unflappable Brown family.
