The Telegraph

By David Gritten
It’s sweet-natured and amusing, with a story to captivate kids; yet the script has enough witty touches to keep adults laughing too.

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
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.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
Loaded with improbable cultural references (Sherman totes a Stephen Hawking lunchbox and uses words like “eponymous”), I fear Mr. Peabody and Sherman may be a bit too brainy to fully connect with contemporary movie audiences.

Boston Globe

By Tom Russo
In the film’s sharpest visual sequence, they land in ancient Egypt, with the filmmakers entertainingly cribbing from “Indiana Jones” and “The Wizard of Oz” to get them out of tight spots.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Has a cool, midcentury-modern look (dog and boy live in a populuxe Manhattan penthouse) and a voice cast that may not be A-list but fits the bill nicely.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is a whip-smart, consistently funny and good-natured film with some terrific voice performances and one of the most hilarious appearances ever by an animated version of a living human being.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
Parents will get the historical jokes but are unlikely to be amused; kids won’t get them, but might laugh anyway.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Lively, educational and intermittently amusing. The fun, however, grows strained and formulaic as the movie goes on.

Total Film

Despite top-notch visuals and versatile voice-work from Ty Burrell’s (Modern Family) doting doggy dad and Alison Janney’s monstrous social worker, it lacks the "Up"-style warmth to be best in show.

Variety

By Guy Lodge
The narrative’s time-travel element allows for plenty of fluffy, fleet-footed action.
