Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I don't get it!" 1 July 2014
Format:DVD
This is a delightful animated family movie based on a segment from a 1950s and 60s American TV series. The previous attempt to make a film from the same show (Rocky and Bullwinkle i9n the mid 90s) was absolutely dire, however this fine toon makes amends in full, with its little-known but well-selected voice cast (Ty Burrell, Stanley Tucci and Ariel Winter to name but three), bright and breezy animated style, and zany, timey-wimey storyline.
Featuring a host of historical characters, including Marie Antoinette and Leonardo da Vinci, crazy inventions, and a hilariously super-smart dog in the eponymous Mr Peabody, this is one of those movies that adults will undoubtedly get more out of, but that has ample interest for children of all ages too.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Dog & His Boy - Blu Ray Review 15 Oct 2014
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A super intelligent mutt adopts a boy & introduces him to time travel!
Daft as a brush but with a warm heart and some funny lines, ( quite a few that only adults will get) and a simple but effective storyline.
The boy, Sherman, has an unfortunate first day at school where bullying leads him to bite another pupil. The social services get involved and Mr.Peabody tries to solve everything by getting the bitten girl & her parents round for tea.
It all goes downhill from there but it's all just an excuse to go hopping into Mr.Peabody's time machine and exploring all sorts of different era's.
Needless to say it all ends well and will keep the ankle biters and their parents happy enough.

The blu-ray comes with an ultraviolet copy & a few extras including P&S beginnings in Rocky & Bullwinkle. & quite a few other mini featurettes. Nothing outstanding but nice to have them.

The picture is 16:9 letterbox 1.85:1 and it has to be said pretty sharp. I guess you'd expect that from digital animation and also the excellent colour & definition. A small downside is that dark scenes can be a little grey and murky at times instead of all out black and shadowing a little hazy. Not the end of the universe but not quite top notch either.

The sound is a much appreciated DTS-HD Master 7.1 so with the subject matter you'd expect all sorts of fireworks. Not so though. This is easily the most subdued 7.1 I've heard and both the sub & the rears are given very little work to do. A bit of a disappointment considering the many opportunities for some real wraparound pyrotechnics.
The sound is not bad but a real trick has been missed here. The vocals are excellent and nailed right into the centre speaker but little else stands out.

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 Darth Maciek 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.
