Product Description

Robert Minkoff directs this animated adventure feature in which an ingenious talking dog and his human sidekick attempt to avert disaster. Mr. Peabody (voice of Ty Burrell) has the achievements to support claims that he is the smartest being on Earth. An influential and highly successful scientist, inventor, businessman and all round polymath, he also happens to be a dog who, in a somewhat unusual turn of events, has adopted a human boy, Sherman (Max Charles), to look after. However, when the curious Sherman creates havoc with Mr. Peabody's latest invention, the WABAC time-travelling machine, the boy and dog team must embark on an adventure through history to try and put things right, meeting figures including Leonardo Da Vinci (Stanley Tucci) and Sigmund Freud (Mel Brooks) along the way. Lake Bell, Leslie Mann and Allison Janney also lend their voices to the film.

By Maciej TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
My daughters liked this film a lot and me I found it entertaining, clever and VERY amusing, especially the fragments in which discreet jokes for adults were included, like the wonderful cameos by Ludvig van Beethoven, Kirk Douglas and Bill Clinton (I lost half of my popcorn because of this last one). Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

The character of Mr Peabody appeared first on "Rocky and Bullwinkle show" in the late 50s, before starring in its own TV series, "Peabody's Improbable History" in the 60s. Those series told about famous characters from the past being visited by a dog named Mr Peabody (world's greatest genius) and his pet boy Sherman. This film is a highly modernized version of this latter show.

Unlike in the series, Mr Peabody walks mostly on two legs, treats Sherman as his son and not as a pet and is also much funnier and more likeable - in the old series Mr Peabody was a colder, more distant, more cynical character. In the series Sherman was slightly dim - in the film however he is just a regular 7-years old boy, may be just more enthusiastic, cheerful and kind-hearted than most.

Raised by a highly civilized and peace-loving father, Sherman is a very gentle child - which, once he starts school makes him an ideal target for the the alpha bully in his class, the abominable Penny Peterson, a girl cute as a button, spoiled like month old steak, mischievous like a cohort of leprechauns and as mean as a rattlesnake...))) One thing leading to another, poor Mr Peabody is forced into peace talks with Penny's parents and tries to reconcile the two kids - and at that moment the REAL troubles begin...

As I already said, this is a delightful film, both for children and for adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars The animation is beautiful 6 Jun 2014
By Ash
Format:DVD
Taking this film on just the animation, I would buy it only for that. Seriously, the cgi in this film is breathtakingly beautiful. I thought the stylized look was really nice and the lighting and tones of the skin beautiful. The story was good, not the best animated film ever but very charming. But it is definitely eye candy for those who love animation for animation sake. I really enjoyed it, thought it was well directed and very different from a lot of other animated films coming out. A very good film

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Entertaining 26 May 2014
Format:DVD
I thoroughly enjoyed this at the cinema, and agree the date of release should be included. I would recommend to all for the realistic atmosphere created during the film and the links to historic events. I am glad it isn't to fantasy, and some parts really made me feel sorry for the characters, especially as things don't go as well as they were planned. I would also like to say how well some of the mistakes the people may of made were solved so the historic events would still seem like they are today.

5.0 out of 5 stars We've seen this film 9 times! 22 May 2014
Format:Blu-ray
My 7 year old daughter has autism and has been getting used to going to the cinema over the last year or so. She has enjoyed a number of films but they haven't always engaged her sufficiently for her to see them through to the end. This however was a huge favourite from the start - she loved it and so did we. It's visually interesting with very appealing characters for her (personally I like Agamemnon best!) and with enough historical interest and humour for us. It reminded me of Bill and Ted which is no bad thing in my book. It's just as well we liked it as she has insisted on going back to see it 9 times...she almost knows it off by heart now. I suspect some parents have had a less positive experience because their children are just too young for this film - I would say it's appropriate for 5-10 year olds (and their parents!)

By Lola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Despite of my age, I love watching animation films, especially the ones which are made for the universal audience, i.e. that are as interesting to children as well as to adults (thanks to some inside jokes and adult humour). In this, "Mr Peabody and Sherman" starts out very promisingly, with brainy intellectual dog Peabody and his adopted son Sherman time-travelling to the French Revolution, giving a history lesson packaged up in crazy hi-jinks, ah isn't it the best form of educational entertainment? No, not really. I wonder how many kids aged 5 to 12 will remember Marie-Antoinette and her cakes, and how many will remember the "hilarious" passage of Mr Peabody and Sherman through the Paris sewers?

The lessons continue (from Renaissance Italy to Sparta and Trojan Horse, I wonder, again, how many kids will put 2 and 2 together and understand the Spartan war after seeing this film? I bet for many of them it would be just a huge wooden horse as means of transportation), but, surprisingly, it's not all about history. The film ventures into serious contemporary moral territory. There is a bullying story - Sherman being tormented by his school's queen bee. Then there is a situation with the legality of Mr Sherman's court case granting him right to adopt ("I see no reason why a dog can't adopt a boy.") - I wonder how many kids will find this subtle "mixed-race" content amusing?
