It's overtaken Toy Story 2, which has a full-on spread of only positive reviews, but only 163 of them (that's seven fewer, maths fans).

The coming-of-age drama is based on Gerwig's own experiences growing up in Northern California and sees Ronan's character, Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson, desperate to leave home and her overbearing mother (Laurie Metcalf) for the wider worldview of college life.

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

Get Data Sheet, Fortune's technology newsletter. The film joins just five others that have earned a ideal Rotten Tomatoes score this year: Faces Places, Jane, The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki, Truman and Bright Lights.

As you can see, the White House now looks like the setting of a horror movie - and people on Twitter are having a field day. The First Lady seemed blissfully unaware of how weird she looked standing there and eventually even cracked a smile.

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. 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".

Anyway, it's now had 170 reviews, and they've all been positive, making it the best-reviewed movie on the site, ever. For perspective, Citizen Kane, a film often mentioned in Greatest of All Time lists, is also at 100%, but with only 75 reviews. The movie now boasts a rare 100% score with 173 reviews and counting on an average rating of 8.9/10.

Since its November 3 release, Lady Bird has made more than $10 million, despite having played in only 800 or so theaters nationwide.
