Goodish family fun

Full disclosure: "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" was bound to have an uphill battle with me. As a long-time fan of the original TV show, I was skeptical that even Dreamworks could pull this one off. But they did ... mostly. This isn't Dreamworks' best effort, lacking the zaniness of the Shrek franchise or the heart of "How to Train Your Dragon." Still, it's funny and endearing, with enough agonizing puns to satisfy me and plenty of sight gags for my 11-year-old daughter. The cast is fine - Peabody's voice is close enough - the story unfolds well and the visuals are enjoyable. I wouldn't nominate it for an award, but it's well worth the price of a matinee ticket and a bucket of popcorn.

I was pleasently suprised when I took my granddaughter to see this movie. It was very good, moved quickly and had an interesting story line and dialogue for children and adults. Small kids (5 and under) will probably get bored but for over 5 it was great.

The movie was great fun. My 6 year old daughter and 7 year old son really enjoyed it. There were plenty of fun things for grownups too. The kids had a great time.

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 without offending the kids. Both adults and kids can find something they like in this movie. Enjoy!

my eight year old son and i thoroughly enjoyed the movie. i was a big fan of mr peobody from his bullwinkle days so was inclined to like the movie. plot is a little more complex than the original cartoon but the personalities of the main characters are endearing and the historical figures highly amusing. my son, of course, wants to go again...
