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.Read more ›
Sherman ends up developing feelings for the most contemptible girl in school simply because she is blond with big blue eyes. When social services shows a prejudice against a dog adopting a boy, even though the court approved it, I couldn't help think there was an underlying message for child viewers that "different" parents can adopt children too.
My wife and I acquiesced somewhat reluctantly. However we were surprised at how enjoyable it was. The underlying premise of the film is a combination of 'If a boy can adopt a dog then surely a dog can adopt a boy' together with 'And what if the dog is a genius - and so invents a time machine'. There is also a subplot related to bullying.
This is a fun film aimed at under 10s and frankly does hit the mark. I have given it 5 stars on that basis - ie our 9 year old loves it. For parents it is mildly amusing but perhaps a tad predictable; it is pleasant but don't look too deeply into the story line. There are occasional jokes aimed at adults (eg Bill Clinton etc) but blink and you will miss them.
There is some 'pop history' of the world - eg appearances by Marie Antoinette, Agamemnon, Leonardo da Vinci but I think it would be hard to 'justify' that it really is an educational film - except perhaps for very young children (eg age 5 or so). I can imagine for younger viewers it could be used to explore some history. It is fun and engaging and I suspect our son will watch it again - and it is the kind of movie that we can safely put it on when he has friends around knowing that they are watching something 'appropriate'.
Target audience: 5 - 10 year olds - five stars for them.
Mr. Peabody and Sherman arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Colours are rich, bold and intoxicating. But after watching How To Train Your Dragon 2 with top-notched graphics, here, we do not see the details of fine hair strands. The hair is more cartoonish, lacking in details. Otherwise, the overall support details in hardwood floors, classroom backgrounds, sandy old Egypt backgrounds are well defined. Blacks are deep and accurate. (4.5/5)
Mr. Peabody and Sherman arrives on blu-ray 3D with MPEG-4 MVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The transfer Is just as rich as in the 2D counterpart, but with increased depth and image separation. There are a few nice "pop out" type effects throughout, such as a spear tip that appears to protrude beyond the confines of the screen. Overall, this makes for a solid but unspectacular Blu-ray 3D release from DreamWorks. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio soundtrack is dynamic, offering a wide, enveloping soundstage and presenting various musical, environmental, and action-specific effects with striking clarity and presence. Music is robust and rich throughout the entire range, from the top all the way down to deep and penetrating yet balanced bass. Surround support is perfect across all four back channels, and front end spacing is wide and smooth. Dialogue is clearly focused. This is an immersive experience. (5/5)
Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell from TV's 'Modern Family') is a genuis dog whose intelligence is not only greater that all other canines, but higher than that of most humans. He was born in the original 'Rocky & Bullwinkle' cartoon. The creation of a time machine called WABAC (pronounced Way Back) is key to the story plot.Read more ›
