Mr Peabody and Sherman

By nerosmom
If you grew up with Rockie and his friends this movie is a nice reminder. Some of the humor was above the young children's heads but it is still a good movie for them. My grandchildren enjoyed and...

Typical, but charming

By fadip
I would not pay to go again, but not a complete waste. The kids liked it, that's all that counts. I guess I just won't be buying it (like Frozen)....

Cute and Funny

Goodish family fun

Something for everyone

Although the movie started out slow, it picked up steam about 1/4 of the way in to it. Stick with it because it is worth it! There is definitely a layer of "funny" that will appeal to adults...

Light hearted brainey fun

My 8-year old grandson loved it, of course. It was entertaining for adults as well -- especially if you like sci-fi back to the future stuff. The characters go way way back in history and I...
