Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) is a business titan, inventor, scientist, Nobel Laureate, gourmand, two-time Olympic medalist, and genius... who also happens to be a dog. Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman (Max Charles) hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time. But when Sherman breaks the rules of time travel, our two heroes find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future, while Mr. Peabody may face his biggest challenge yet - being a parent.

Peabody is this extremely intelligent dog who can talk and his adopted son Sherman is a 7-year-old boy who is a sponge for facts but quite slow practically. They go on adventures through time to learn about history. The movie sets that up in the first 15 minutes, which by the way it was done it looked like the movie was going to be some kids documentary about history but when it actually got into the story it was really fun. The comedy made me laugh, the visuals are stunning, I wish I could've seen it in 3D, the story is quite unique but also had similar elements of other movies, I got a Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure vibe and you get some pretty generic characters that you've seen in quite a lot of animated movies but the plot was't boring; I was interested to the end. The voice acting is pretty average but the way Mr. Peabody says things do add a certain something to the film.
Yes, it has weak points. Peabody is too perfect... the villain is too over the top... But they got the essence of the story right. Tongue in cheek. A little flip. Doesn't take itself too seriously.
As a long-time fan of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, I came away feeling they'd done alright by the characters... and woven a pretty good story.
If you're new to the characters, you'll probably find this an enjoyable film. If you're a long-time fan, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. It's definitely worth a watch.
I thought this movie was just very adorable. The plot was engaging, and I liked how Sherman wasn't always doing the right thing. I did think, however, that the kids were too mature for seven-year-olds. Penny's lines sounded unnatural at times, as well. Other than that, the history parts were fun, the historical figures were funny, and overall, the movie was fantastic. Great for adults and children of all ages.
