REVIEW: Mr. Peabody & Sherman

On Saturday, we were invited to attend an advance screening of Mr. Peabody and Sherman. I think I was more excited than the kids. I loved watching the Mr. Peabody cartoons when I was younger and I was looking forward to my kids loving Mr. Peabody as well!

Official Synopsis: (IMDb)
  1. Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine - The WABAC - to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.

Our review:

Mr. Peabody is not adopted as a pup so he uses his spare time to study, learn and invent. In turn, he petitions the court to adopt a boy, Sherman. This movie shows the amazing relationship between a boy and his dog, or in this case, his father! Sherman gets himself into all sorts of trouble and its up to Mr. Peabody to save him. The back-and-forth arguing of parent letting go of their child into society will touch the heart of any parent watching this movie with their child. There are funny parts for kids but many more funny parts and one-liners that only adults understood. This movie provides many glimpses into major events in history and the kids were dying to know more! All in all we loved it and will definitely be watching it over and over again!

One of the best parts of this movie are the 3-D glasses!

The 3-D effects in this movie were on point. It was just enough to pleasantly watch without having to remove your glasses 20 times during the movie. Actually, the kids didn't take off their glasses once.  (There was face painting at the event, that's why you see a green snake on Adrian's face!)

The kids received their very own Mr. Peabody and Sherman Glasses and Bow Tie Set. They wore these all day Saturday!

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, I highly recommend going to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman together as family. It really is fun for all!

Did you watch the Mr. Peabody and Sherman cartoons? Do you plan on taking your kids to watch the movie?


  1. Oh fun! I love the family glasses shot! No, we've never watched the cartoons but Scarlet has now seen two movies in the theater and she's fallen in love with it.

  2. Wow, such a cute family pic at what sounds like a cute movie!

    Happy Kids, Inc

  3. My husband wants to see this more than my kid does. Great photos by the way.

  4. This does look like a wonderful movie, I still have yet to watch the whole movie through,, Hopefully this winter will give me some time to do that, it is a good one.

  5. Have not seen it but I am sure kids would love it.
