My grandkids had this movie #1 on their "to see" list! Being the doting grandmom that I am, LOL, we went last night. WOW, what a movie. Educational, fun, full of life lessons regarding issues like bullying, truth-telling, obedience to authorities, kindness and acts of forgiveness. History is revisited by way of a "wayback" time machine and Sherman and his adversarial classmate have quite a few adventures. The movie reminds me of a great series of books, "The Magic Tree House" series done by Mary Pope Osborne. You'll want the kids in your life to see this excellent film; you'll be glad you went along!

We arrived just in time to chose seats not too far from the screen. It was my second son's very first time at the movies and his 1st birthday ,March 15th so I was very excited for him! He kept waving at the screen and had a really great time. I took my three other children ages 12, 11 and 7 plus their friend Jasmine who is 12 years. We loved the fact that it had French words, a few scenes talking about history of the French guillotine, French Revolution( I was raised in South of France for 20 years and have a French passport).
I like the fact that it was not too crowded in the auditorium; there were a few families and everybody behaved themselves pretty well.
I personally enjoyed the character Mr. Peabody and his voice and it is a great script and marvelous story with a intellectual message as well. Would recommend a sequel. Thank you for allowing me to review this awesome movie!

I took my 12 year old son and we had an absolutely fabulous time. The voices of Peabody and Sherman were great and the many other characters and voices were super. The story is wonderful and filled with laugh out loud moments for adults and older children.
Two thumbs up from both of us !!!

I took my 6 yr old son and 4 yr old daughter and they both really enjoyed it. Cute characters, good lessons and nothing in the humor was overly PG. There is a good deal of humor for the adults too.
Two thumbs up!

I saw this with my 9 year old son after just seeing the Lego movie. I thought the story dragged on in the Lego Movie and that the storyline for Mr. Peabody was much bettr. Though Mr. Peabody doesn't really have any of the characteristics of a dog, what better backdrop for the creation of humor and humorous characatures than history and the trip this dog and Sherman take us on from Ancient Greece, to the Renaissance, to the French Revolution. Some of it went right over my son's head, but my son came out of it feeling like he learned something, which is more than he gets from any other cartoon. At the end of the day, I enoyed it and my son enjoyed it, though he still says he preferred the Lego Movie better, which I atrribute to his unafamiliarity to Mr. Peabody.
