However, Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, now playing in U.S. cinemas, has surpassed Toy Story's 163 glowing reviews. The film stars Saoirse Ronan as the titular teen who clashes with her equally strong-willed mother (Laurie Metcalf) in California in the early 2000s.
Lady Bird is Greta Gerwig's directorial debut; she has acted in the likes of Jackie, 20th Century Woman, and Mistress America.
Just last night, Ronan received an award for Best Actress at the IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards for her role in Lady Bird.

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. She found out the news from her younger brother, who was "also slightly skeptical" that her film had bested an animated classic like Toy Story 2, she joked.
"This is completely incredible and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird", Gerwig said. It's hard to imagine how she could've made a better first impression. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true. "We are all on cloud nine and using our tomato emoji more than we ever thought possible".
"The movie's Tomatometer score will be subject to change as it continues to platform from limited release, likely into the next year", Rotten Tomatoes editor Alex Vo wrote in an article explaining the new record. The rating is still up as 100 percent but the big test is yet to come: it will be released in the United Kingdom - the spiritual home of the quirky comedy - on 16 February.
