Movie Preview: “Paddington 2” pits the bear against Hugh Grant

The surest way to muck up a perfectly adorable children’s film is the insist upon doing a sequel. Whatever literary qualities “Paddington Bear” has, as a cinematic event he only gets to take us by delightful surprise once.

So. Cast Hugh Grant as the villain, bring in Brendan Gleeson and Julie Walters and Peter Capaldi and other bears…voila! A January sleeper? Could be.
