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. The previous title-holder was Toy Story 2, which has a fresh streak of 163 reviews.

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter.

Released by indie film studios A24 (Moonlight) earlier this month, Lady Bird only went from a limited release to wider distribution this past weekend, and the film has so far pulled in $10.7 million in domestic theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. The animation movie had gained 163 reviews holding the record for the first flawless score by Rotten Tomatoes. That honour was previously held by Toy Story 2.

As of this writing, Lady Bird is "certified fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes with a 100 percent score made up of an astonishing 170 positive reviews and not a single negative one. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.
