    This so is clever and fun! A definite must see. One you can watch multiple times! It even has some fun history lessons. Good to watch with kids or all your adult friends!

    Based on the characters created by Jay Ward, this treatment is clever and respectful of the legacy while certainly taking “modern” license. Just as in the original cartoons, some of the humor will only resonate with adults, while the bulk of the storyline and images are tailored to hit the kids at eye level, including quite a repertoire of scatological and treehouse humor...

    MovieReviewMaven.blogspot.com Grade = B PG, 1 hour 32 minutes In a Nutshell: You may remember these lovable guys from the old Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series cartoon from the 1950’s and 60’s. They finally get the feature animation they deserve. Back then we didn’t realize that Mr. Peabody would invent tear-away pants and Zumba. True to the TV series, there are a lot of silly puns that will make you laugh and moan at the same time. There were potty-humor gags that kids tend to love, such as when a ship flies out of a Sphinx’s rear end, as well as wordplay references to movies that kids won’t recognize, but parents will enjoy, like when King Tut yells Runaway Bride Sherman often said “I don’t get it” when the adult jokes would fly over his head. The WABAC machine (pronounced “Way Back”) is used to transport various characters in the movie to different periods of time and was originally created on the TV show to poke fun at the names of some of the first computers (UNIVAC and ENIAC). Surprisingly, it is still a term used in some internet applications (Wikipedia) to describe the ability to go back to older content…”Not where, but when.” Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure fans will get a kick out of this animated run through select historical moments. Uplifting theme: Be proud of who you are and whose you are. It’s a sweet, perhaps overly-sentimental, father-son movie that will leave you grinning as you walk out the movie theater. Every dog should have a boy. Things I liked: I thought it was cute when Mr. Peabody found Sherman as an orphaned baby in a box wearing glasses. I got a kick out of hearing funnyman Steven Colbert voice Paul Peterson. He called Sherman “Dos Shermanos” when he got a little tipsy from Mr. Peabody’s dinner party drinks. I can never get enough of Allison Janney, Stanley Tucci, Leslie Mann, and Ty Burrell. I was tickled to hear Mel Brooks brings Albert Einstein to life. The audience laughed with delight during the scene when Mr. Peabody plays a bunch of different audiences. A recurring gag occurred every time someone dropped something in Egypt; a servant would race by, pick it up and say something so fast I couldn’t quite tell…was it “I got it!?” The audience I sat with instantly fell in love with Agamemnon. Patrick Warburton always knocks it out of the park with his awesome voice and timing. I thought his armpits were hilarious. I thought it was cute when he called Sherman “Shermanis” to fit in with the Greeks. One of his many funny lines was “My father is half man, half minotaur, all judgment.” I thought the Trojan war scene was amusing how they tried to make it look like the movie 300 with slow-motion action sequences. Adorable Spartacus scene with Kirk Douglas cameo. Things I didn’t like: The animation design of the hills outside the city of Florence was disappointing. I loved the detail on the famous Ponte Vechio and the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. I was in beautiful Florence a few months ago and was reliving my trip through those scenes. Unfortunately, the ocean water animation was also poorly done. It was hard to cheer for Penny Peterson who was such a brat. I didn’t care if she got left behind in another time or not. I was kind of surprised when Mr. Peabody said something about booby traps and Sherman giggled “You said boobie!” Funny lines: “When Sherman says “I love you Mr. Peabody”, his adopted dog father says “I have a deep regard for you, as well, Sherman.” “Pictures were taken for insurance purposes.” - Principal Purdy “Wait, what kind of cake?” – a French man in the crowd during the French revolution scene, responding to Marie Antoinette’s famous line “Let them eat cake!” “A cantaloupe? The lowest of the fruits!” - A French man “When it comes to my daughter, nothing is more important than…(answering cell phone suddenly) Shello? Sure, I’ll take a survey.” - Mr. Peterson Penny asks Sherman “Do you do everything Mr. Peabody says?” “Yeah.” She asks “Do you know what that makes you?” “An obedient son.” “No, a dog.” “Oy plagues. Why did I ever move to Egypt?” – A random Jewish man in the crowd “You can’t marry him! His name rhymes with butt!” - Sherman “This is a little home-spun concoction I like to call ‘Einstein on the Beach.’” – Mr. Peabody “So, he’s literally a dog.” (Mr. Peterson) “I prefer the term “literate” dog.” (Mr. Peabody) Things to look for: Van Gogh with bandages on his ears The little boy in Sherman’s classroom whose feet can’t reach the floor when he’s sitting down at his desk. Boxers with hearts on them The dog with the cone on its head at the beginning of the movie. Try to figure out what the mystery meat is on the cafeteria food trays. The picture of cats hanging in Principal Purdy’s office at school. Picture of Ghandi next to Sherman’s bed. Rubic’s cube (Hint: look for Einstein). “I love New York” t-shirt and underwear. Bill Clinton cameo. Tips for parents: Some inappropriate jokes, but mostly harmless. Parents and children watching the movie in the audience I sat with enjoyed the movie equally. It’s certainly no Frozen magic, worthy of an Oscar, but it’s very energetic and fairly entertaining family fun. The visits through time should spark some conversations with your kids about history…."not where, but when.”

    Amid so many “rebootings” and “reimaginings” of classic franchises which fall short, it is refreshing to see a recent version of an old favorite which retains so much of the original’s flavor – particularly its dry wit and propensity for excruciating puns. While parents who remember the series from The Bullwinkle Show may enjoy this film more than their children, it is a safe and fun romp for all ages; and kids may appreciate being introduced to these funny, adventurous characters...

    This highly imaginative movie will entertain kids and adults alike! Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy, Sherman, travel in the Wabac, a time machine ride that enables them to visit Moses in the bulrushes, Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution, Egypt and King Tut, Shakespeare and that’s to name just a few! Mr. Peabody is a genius, having received his degree as “valedogtorian” at Harvard!... See Full Review

    This screwball peek at history pits the value of book learning against hands-on experience as it introduces famous figures from the past. It also suggests, at least in the case of childrearing, you can teach an old dog new tricks. For most young viewers this message will be totally lost. And that’s okay. Much like Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, this film isn’t so much about history as it is about how entertaining history can be—with the right narrator of course... See Full Review

    Craig Wright's screenplay adds a tiresome amount of potty humor to the elaborate, sometimes groan-inducing puns characteristic of the original material. And a lone adult-themed play on words, though it will certainly fly over youngsters' heads, still seems jarringly out of place. But basic history lessons for the youngest moviegoers, together with a worthy message about respecting people of different backgrounds -- even if they do happen to be canines -- endow this more than usually literate children's adventure with some countervailing virtues...

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman, even when it's genuinely trying to be true to the spirit of the original, may have a tricky time recapturing what it was that was so special about the casually insane, tossed-off fizziness of Peabody and Sherman's four-minute adventures in the WABAC machine. The characters can still climb into that time machine, of course, but there's simply no going back to an age when Mr. Peabody's brainy quizzicality was novel. Ty Burrell, voicing Peabody in the movie, gets the character's speedy, super-logical rhythms without quite nailing his dry delight. He needed a touch more savoir faire, a dash of Tim Gunn. That said, over the years, there have been a lot of famous kids' shows turned into brightly colored dumbed-down movies, and Mr. Peabody & Sherman, by contrast, is an agreeably brisk and word-happy entertainment for little ones. If you grew up with Mr. Peabody, it doesn't totally recapture the magic of the original, but it doesn't leave you feeling cheated, either... See Full Review

    With quality animations movies coming out now days like "Despicable Me" movies and "The Lego Movie" this movie has an uphill battle to get noticed. I was amused during the movie but just barely enough to be give it a thumps up. It is a forgettable movie and is something I would wait for on DVD. The jokes in the movie either appeal to the kids or they appeal to adults, hardly ever is there a joke meant for both. It is a pretty safe movie to take the young kids to. It just fails to live up to the quality of animation films that are coming out now days.

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman wasn't a home run, but it was certainly a stand-up double. The introduction to history for young children (although some of it was a bit off) was great to see. The voice cast was excellent, especially Patrick Warburton as Greek warrior. The animation was really well done and very cute, but the 3D wasn't really worth it. My 8-year-old daughter loved it — 4 stars, she says. My 10-year-old son, who considers himself a critic saw it as a solid 3-star movie.

    Things drag, here and there. But kids will dig the slapstick, the talking dog and giggle at what flies out of the Sphinx’s butt, or drops from the rear-end of the Trojan Horse. Adults will be tickled at the usual Dreamworks parade of one-liners, running gags and puns, and feel a little sentimental, especially if you’re old enough to know the true lesson these characters taught us on TV, the “moral of the story,” as they used to say. “Every dog should have a boy.”...
