Treat your kids. Most of all, treat yourself! (by jns1014)
Finally, a movie that relates to both kids and adults. Exceptional story line and dialogue. As a big fan of the "original" Mr. Peabody and Sherman from that "Moose and Squirrel" show, this adaptation to the big screen did not disappoint. In all honesty, I was expecting a half-hearted, half-baked premise that would have me checking my watch after about 15 minutes. Not so. The movie did a great job in every aspect imaginable; character development, historical references, humor, and song thanks to a well-placed masterpiece by John Lennon . Extremely entertaining all around. <more>
A lot of the history might be lost on the younger set, but there is no harm in exposing them to things of interest, is there? Leonardo da Vinci was my personal favorite. You might see more biography projects at school. One could hope.
Amazing! Didn't expect to be so wonderful! (by rainbowdancer22)
I will say that this is one of the best animations I've watched in my life! I didn't think it will be so awesome! It combines the entertainment in time travel, history and I had a good laugh! I wasn't expecting to be impressed, because it seemed like another story about time travel and after watching a few you get bored. But this was unique. Yet, in films I haven't seen anything different then a human making a time machine. Or using for something such as history studies. They've put true historical facts in the film witch is great for the younger to learn something <more>
interesting. I believe that it can even turn the attention to children that think that history is boring or useless. The humor is great! I haven't laughed like this since Despicable Me 2! And I don't find it as offensive humor either. It's also the perfect amount - not too less and not too much. The fact that these things are mixed in one bowl makes them even better. They've shown a curious for knowledge child, who travels in time to learn something new with his father, who is a dog, and has a laugh with the happening events.It also shows how two enemies that can't stand each other can become great friends. That is a voluble lesson for kids.The characters are presented in a fun way. Mr. Peabody can do more than any normal human and makes great first impressions with that. The characters from the past are represented in a funny way, but the humor still keeps the historical event correct. Unreal, funny, with knowledge and teaches you things about friendship. This is one of the many films that have impressed me with everything. That is why I give it a 10 stars rating. This is my opinion, I hope it helped.
Multiple levels of Meaning and Exhilarating 3D effects (by EduCube)
Mr. Peabody and Sherman is more than just a movie about a Dog-Genius father and his adopted son. It is a movie that, at least for me, enabled me to develop a deeper spiritual trust and relationship with my own father. My dad and I went out to this movie last night and after we talked about what the movie really means. It is a movie about a relationship between father and son that gradually develops respect and trust between Mr. Peabody and Sherman. There is also a Spiritual element that some of the kids probably wouldn't catch on to. The Dog is more than just a symbol of a perfect father <more>
figure he is a symbol of a Spiritual father a symbol of cosmic love a symbol of deep Spiritual trust. Movies like this build up the next generation and are big in culture-creation. The dog star has a knack for visual binary intelligence and is a witty and dedicated pal. I look forward to more feature films with "mans best friend" that bring the next generation into a deeper level of solidarity through presenting educational standards in a way that is memorable.
After the February smash hit: "The Lego Movie," "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" certainly does have a tough act to follow. Despite this, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" certainly does bring another high-quality piece of family entertainment to the big screen.Surprisingly, the film's story is quite strong. Based on the retro cartoon of the same name, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" centers on a highly intelligent dog named Mr. Peabody excellently voiced by Modern Family star, Ty Burrell who adopts a young boy named Sherman also excellently voiced by <more>
8-year-old Max Charles . Peabody takes Sherman on adventures through time with his super advanced time machine known as the "Way Back". After a series of incidents, the duo must travel to different time periods and eventually have to fix a potential hole in the space time continuum. Many recent films based on retro cartoons such as the abysmal "Scooby Doo" and "Smurfs" films have failed to provide a good screenplay to accompany its animated hijinks. This film, however, is packed with witty dialogue and good morals about unconventional families, fatherhood, and childhood struggles. Mr. Peabody and Sherman are surprisingly deep characters. The fact that Sherman has been raised by a dog does eventually cause a rift between the two. In the beginning of the movie, Sherman is teased at school and called a "dog" because his father is one. Also faced with his own maturing, Sherman wishes to do more things on his own. Peabody, meanwhile is apprehensive of Sherman doing things on his own, as he fears inside that Sherman will outgrow him. This is quite a lot of conflict for a "kid's movie."Luckily, the thematic elements are interspersed with charming humor and exciting visuals. Each time period is filled with beautifully animated landscapes and enjoyable characters with top-notch vocal performances. In 18th century France, Marie Antoinette voiced by Lauri Fraser is portrayed as a bubbly, naive, cake-obsessed aristocrat who is constantly stuffing her face with dessert. In ancient Egypt, palm trees, pyramids and towering statues show a clear rose gallery of effort from the animation team.It's also worth pointing out that this film has some of the finest voice acting I have ever heard in an animated feature. Ty Burrell and Max Charles bring believable emotion and jocularity to Peabody and Sherman respectively. Burrell gives Peabody a suitably intellectual and clear sounding voice, giving an extra jolt of likability to the character. Max Charles shows an excessive amount of talent for an 8- year-old probably younger when the dialogue was recorded , making Sherman a believable young boy with a roller-coaster of emotions throughout. An all-star supporting cast including Steve Colbert, Ariel Winter, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Warburton, Dennis Haysbert, Allison Janney, Leslie Mann and even Mel Brooks are certainly a treasure to listen to as well.In regards to its historical accuracy, though this film does certainly have its share of jarring anachronisms such as heart-printed underwear and an actual working flying machine made by Leonardo da Vinci , there is certainly a decent amount of informative elements in the historical scenes. Kids may actually be delighted to learn about how Marie Antoinette helped ignite the French Revolution and how George Washington didn't really cut down a cherry tree. The film makes the wise decision of being a colorful family adventure film while still having some informative elements. LA Times' film critic Betsey Sharkey recently criticized this movie for being "too smart for its own good," saying: "Mr. Peabody's "teaching moments" will sail right over the heads of kids while requiring adults to pay attention." With all due respect, Ms. Sharkey, I feel like the "teaching moments" are what make this movie stand out from other family fare. The fact that the filmmakers bring some education to the screenplay really shows that they have faith in a kid's ability to watch a movie.In all fairness, one common criticism I do somewhat understand is the film's somewhat convoluted second act. Without giving anything away, I do have to admit things get pretty hectic. However, after many years of watching movies with time travel, I've learned to put down my complaint notebook and enjoy the movie. Let's face it: it's pretty much a guarantee that a movie involving time travel will have at least a couple of plot holes. Even excellent time travel films like "Looper" and "Back to the Future" have plot holes. However, those discussions are for another day.At the end of the day, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" is a beautiful, funny, and even heartfelt film that families from every background will get a kick out of. It is enjoyable to watch, and I dare even say it's one of Dreamworks' best efforts to date.
I wasn't impressed watching the trailer. Thankfully, I got a chance of a pre-screening. I'm perplexed by the low ratings because I absolutely loved this movie! This is coming from someone who hasn't seen Mr. Peabody before.Mr. Peabody is a genius dog who adopts a boy and raises him to be a genius too. Unfortunately things change when the boy goes to school and gets bullied by a girl. Mr. Peabody, to appease things, invites the girl and her parents to a dinner at their house, everything goes haywire from there and we meet some pretty interesting characters from the past.What made <more>
this movie special is the little details that are revealed along the way like how Sherman was adopted. The animation is fantastic and the 3D adorns it. As someone who likes puns, I absolutely loved the jokes, not just from Mr. Peabody but from other characters in the movie as well. Agamemnon was hilarious! Not everything is funny though, there are a few serious and tear jerking moments that make this movie special.My only complaint is that some time travel stuff explained in the movie can be a bit hard to understand for children. Other than that, it's an absolute treat both for children and adults. Go watch it!
An entertaining movie for kids as well as adults. (by Anurag-Shetty)
Mr. Peabody & Sherman is the story of an extremely intelligent dog named, Mr. Peabody Ty Burrell & his adopted human son, Sherman Max Charles . Using a time traveling machine called, the WABAC, the duo travel to the past to experience iconic historic moments & meet historic people firsthand. However, after Sherman gets into trouble at school due to Penny Peterson Ariel Winter , Peabody decides to invite Penny & her parents, Paul Stephen Colbert & Patty Peterson Leslie Mann for dinner to resolve the issue. However, the intelligent dog's plan horribly backfires when <more>
Sherman tells Penny about the WABAC & she being the obnoxious & inquisitive girl that she is, decides to do some time traveling of her own. Now, it's up to Mr. Peabody & Sherman to save Penny & return the space-time continuum to normal before the Petersons realize their daughter's missing. I was laughing throughout the film & had a blast! I loved the fact that Mr. Peabody, who is a dog, is way more clever than the humans he interacts with. I loved the father-son relationship between Mr. Peabody & his human kid, Sherman. Though this scenario could never happen in a million years, the makers of the movie make their relationship believable & emotional at the same time. Mr. Peabody gets pretty emotional & sad seeing how fast Sherman is growing up. I loved the idea of time travel in an animated film, which kind of makes it a sci-fi film, as well! The voice acting is the highlight of the movie. Ty Burrell, best known for portraying Phil Dunphy on the hit sitcom, Modern Family, is equally hilarious, sarcastic, goofy & endearing as Mr. Peabody. Max Charles is adorable as the innocent little kid, Sherman. Ariel Winter, also known for playing Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, is outstanding as the obnoxious & curious, Penny Peterson. Allison Janney is spectacular as the main antagonist, Ms. Grunion. Stephen Colbert is impressive as Paul Peterson. Leslie Mann is amazing as Patty Peterson. The famous characters of historical importance are brilliant as well. Special mention should be made of, Stanley Tucci, Lake Bell & Patrick Warburton for their unforgettable voice overs of Leonardo da Vinci, Mona Lisa & Agamemnon respectively. I would like to sign off by saying, Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a must watch for everyone who enjoys a darn good movie.
Barking mad... in a good way. (by shawneofthedead)
It's hard to imagine somebody trying to pitch the story for Mr. Peabody & Sherman - "Let's make a movie about a genius dog who goes travelling in time and space with his adopted human son!" Well, actually, someone did make that pitch... way back in the 1950s. The two characters first appeared in Rocky And His Friends, an animated television show that will ring a bell with American audiences. But those of us who are less familiar with these characters needn't fret: this new incarnation by DreamWorks Animation is bright, funny and packed with great gags, a pleasingly <more>
smart treat for kids and adults alike.Mr. Peabody voiced by Ty Burrell is the brainiest dog in all the land, and a celebrated inventor, athlete and businessman to boot. From his lonely perch atop the world, he decides to adopt a baby boy. Everything goes well until the bespectacled Sherman Max Charles starts school. Forced to play nice with Penny Ariel Winter , a classmate who ridicules him for having a dog as a father, Sherman shows her the WABAC: a time machine invented by Mr. Peabody to allow his son to bear witness to history in the making. Together, Sherman and Penny embark on a trip across time that could destroy the past, the present and the future.Bouncing merrily from the French Revolution to ancient Greece by way of the Italian Renaissance, Mr. Peabody & Sherman messes mischievously with history - we're presented with a cake-obsessed Marie Antoinette Lauri Fraser , a volatile Mona Lisa Lake Bell and a beef-headed Agamemnon Patrick Warburton . Most of these references will likely be lost on younger viewers, but there's still plenty to keep them entertained. As the film races along in its madcap way, gags and puns so bad they're brilliant are tossed at the audience in such great amounts that it's rather amazing that most of them work as well as they do.The film does suffer a little from its breakneck pace, as it rushes headlong towards a cataclysmic convergence of the past and the present. The story gets a little lost in the shuffle of history, with almost too much to absorb by the time nefarious social services worker Ms. Grunion voiced with wicked relish by Allison Janney turns up - a canine bigot to the core - and threatens to remove Sherman from Mr. Peabody's custody.Nevertheless, director Rob Minkoff manages to pull the whole thing off, balancing the film's largely irreverent tone with a surprisingly heartfelt ending. He even crafts a father-son moment near the end of the film that's both shamelessly sweet and a cheeky nod to cinematic history. Think Kirk Douglas and Stanley Kubrick circa 1960. It's all quite enough to suggest that there's a bright cinematic future ahead for this little boy and his dog/dad.
It's quite noticeable that Dreamworks Animation is trying to break visual grounds in their most recent movies, but Mr. Peabody and Sherman gives a little reminder on their original magic. The first half shows how charming the worlds they can bring even without shoving too much spectacles, the characters bursting out absurd personality that may sometimes be senseless yet terribly affable. But of course, it's an adventure traveling through historical events, but it kind of falls short on the concept and rather places those things into a bumpy ride with a dramatic center. Those things <more>
could have worked if it was more sincere, but the real enjoyment lies on the basics where you let the mockeries and the humor speak.There is a nice additional depth behind the quirky and interesting relationship of the two, it makes their reintroduction on screen feel a lot fresh. The growth of their connection kicks in the plot, and that is when it starts becoming a bit forced. It doesn't seem comfortable with heightening the material. Turning things big and emotional is more like a must for the film to have because apparently that is what most animation today usually strive for. None of it actually plummets things down, but the story is probably better off smaller. People should remember the studio is more than trippy visuals and celebrity voices, in the end it's the simple witty humor that provides the genuine color in their movies.The plot here should have focused more on the intersection between education and parody within the historical settings than building epic proportions in its little plot. The typical elements are still fun. Ty Burrell is dashing as Mr. Peabody even with the seriousness that embodies the character do too sparks a sense of heart. The entire cast delivers the comedy admirably and it really leaves the viewers hungry for more. The zany effects kind of interrupts most of that, but the animation is still great overall. The designs are wonderfully loyal to its cartoony essence which is one of the striking things to pay close attention to.Mr. Peabody and Sherman is completely fun when it doesn't try following the modern roots of the genre. It's a lot brilliant when it's just traveling time, meeting a caricatured version of a particular historical figure, stopping candles, and let the personalities of the characters develop on their own without being too didactic. The relationship of Peabody and Sherman is already compelling at the start, but they could have think of better choices to justify its center. There are still plenty of strong stuff worth seeing around, it just needs to be cleverer.
What a great animation!! Really engaging and fun! Imagine taking elements from Back to the Future, make Doc Brown look similar to Brian Griffin and give the character some Brain, from Pink and the Brain, characteristics.I don't know the show it's based on or the characters from it, it's a 1959 animated show that had a short run, I'll check it eventually, so this is a reinterpretation from a probably obscure show from the past, but I dare to say that I really enjoyed and got myself hooked with those characters!I even dare to say that I think we should have one of these films <more>
every year! It was awesome! Kids learn and get curious about things, there are interesting morals, dads also can have fun with all the pop culture references, it's really a great animation! Go check this out and take your kids with you, you'll have fun beyond imagination!
