All 170 reviews of "Lady Bird" through Monday morning on the movie critic website have marked the movie as "fresh", not the "rotten" label reserved for less-than-savory flicks.

The previous record holder was 1999′s "Toy Story 2", which held a 100 percent score after 163 reviews. With so many reviews, even a critically beloved movie is bound to come up with at least one or two dissenters (or someone like Armond White, who believes it's his job to play the contrarian).

Lady Bird will be released in cinemas in the United Kingdom on February 16.

A new indie movie about a teenager's love-hate relationship with her hometown has passed an animated tale about talking toys to become the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Lady Bird", Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age film about a teen with a penchant for Dave Matthews Band, puffing on fiberglass and throwing herself out of the occasional moving auto has broken a Rotten Tomatoes record. Although small indies can tend to hold on to 100% "Fresh" ratings, it's a monumental task for a wide-release film.

The movie, which was released in the USA earlier this month, has achieved a 100 percent score from the aggregation site, and is the most reviewed film to have done so. The A24 movie has received a 8.9/10 average critic rating, and is expected to be a strong contender at the Oscars next year - it's already been nominated for three Gotham Awards, including Best Actress, and four Film Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Actress and Best Feature. For perspective, Citizen Kane, a film often mentioned in Greatest of All Time lists, is also at 100%, but with only 75 reviews.

Originally released in just two cities, "Lady Bird" expanded to theaters nationwide November 24. The controversy over the delayed Justice League score was a huge sign of that influence - as well as the blockbuster's disappointing reception at the box office following the tepid critical reactions and Tomatometer score.

This is completely fantastic and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird.

And as Lady Bird emphatically responds: "It is enough!"
