The film was met with unanimous approval by 170 critics, edging out the previous record holder Toy Story 2, which delighted only 163 reviewers when it came out in 1999.

Ronan, who stars as film's title character, is generating quite a bit of Oscars buzz with her performance, as is writer-director Greta Gerwig, whose semi-autobiographical movie about her hometown of Sacramento, her first behind the camera.

"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. Even Armond White, a known contrarian who tanked Toy Story 3's ideal score, was forced to bow to Lady Bird's supremacy, acquiescing that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".

Gerwig's directorial debut is the most popular film on the movie review site and has garnered a 100 percent rating since its release on November 3.

EVER SINCE THE trailer for Saoirse Ronan's new movie Lady Bird dropped in September, we have been eagerly awaiting the release of the film in Ireland. The more positive "fresh" reviews from critics, the higher a film's Rotten Tomato rating will be. Walt Disney's Thor: Ragnarok actually has 277 "Fresh" reviews this year, along with 24 "Rotten" reviews, for an overall score of 92%, while fellow indie film The Big Sick received 233 positive reviews, and a score of 98%, earlier this year.

Originally released in just two cities, "Lady Bird" expanded to theaters nationwide November 24.
