That honour was previously held by Toy Story 2.

This all should be taken with the caveat that Rotten Tomatoes is not the be-all-end-all of movie criticism - though plenty has been said about that - but there's no denying that the review aggregator site has become a huge audience and box office influencer.

We don't know how to put this, but Lady Bird is kind of a big deal.

The 23-year-old nabbed the Best Actress gong at the Independent Filmmaker Project's 27th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in NY. Gerwig called the movie's record-setting Rotten Tomatoes score "completely wonderful and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird" in a statement to Rotten Tomatoes. The movie now boasts a rare 100% score with 173 reviews and counting on an average rating of 8.9/10.

"This is completely unbelievable and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made 'Lady Bird.' We put our heart and souls into this movie, and the last step of this deeply collaborative art form of filmmaking is giving the film to the audience and the film critics". The more positive "fresh" reviews from critics, the higher a film's Rotten Tomato rating will be.

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true".

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, "Lady Bird", has broken a Rotten Tomatoes record: It has accumulated the longest run of positive reviews ever recorded by the movie website.

Just last night, Ronan received an award for Best Actress at the IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards for her role in Lady Bird.

So what is Lady Bird?

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