    You might need the assistance of a time machine to find a child who is clamoring for a Mr. Peabody & Sherman feature film remake. show more

    Lively, educational and intermittently amusing. The fun, however, grows strained and formulaic as the movie goes on. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Has a cool, midcentury-modern look (dog and boy live in a populuxe Manhattan penthouse) and a voice cast that may not be A-list but fits the bill nicely. show more

    Burrell doesn’t quite capture the wry deadpan of the original, but then, neither does the movie. That’s okay. show more

    A pleasant, polished, but somewhat by-the-numbers effort. show more

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is a whip-smart, consistently funny and good-natured film with some terrific voice performances and one of the most hilarious appearances ever by an animated version of a living human being. show more

    Loaded with improbable cultural references (Sherman totes a Stephen Hawking lunchbox and uses words like “eponymous”), I fear Mr. Peabody and Sherman may be a bit too brainy to fully connect with contemporary movie audiences. show more

    In the film’s sharpest visual sequence, they land in ancient Egypt, with the filmmakers entertainingly cribbing from “Indiana Jones” and “The Wizard of Oz” to get them out of tight spots. show more

    Things drag, here and there. But kids will dig the slapstick, the talking dog and giggle at what flies out of the Sphinx’s butt, or drops from the rear-end of the Trojan Horse. Adults will be tickled at the usual Dreamworks parade of one-liners, running gags and puns, and feel a little sentimental. show more

    Parents will get the historical jokes but are unlikely to be amused; kids won’t get them, but might laugh anyway. show more

    I took my son and daughter to c this movies, all in all it was just ok, I enjoyed the history parts in the movie but the rest was a little silly. Not a bad movie but could have waited

    I took my daughter to see this movie and for the both of us this movie appeared to drag on. The visuals were decent and it was somewhat funny but LONG...hard to keep my attention at times. There are movies for children that I would like to go back and see...unfortunately, this is not one of them.

    Mr. Peabody's voice miscast.

    We see most of the kids' movies and this one I would put in the middle. As a mom watching this with my adopted son, I liked the sentiments expressed about adoption. I agree with a comment below, it could have been a little funnier.

    We Saw This Movie, Old Cartoon, Don't Expect To Relieve The Past ! The New Peabody And Sherman,Does Not Have The Same Quality As The Original Cartoon. The Visuals Were Ok, But The Story Line Geared More Towards Children. On A Scale Of 1 - 5 We Give It A (2) Wait For The DVD !

    The Son of God is a beautiful depiction of the love of Jesus. Whether you've followed Jesus for a long time or a short while, it is a must to see. If you are not sure of your belief, you owe it to yourself to see Son of God.

    Love these shows, but was just a bit disappointed in this one. My kids of course loved it as they love Peabody and the qwerkyness of him throughout the movie.
