Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
I had not seen the retro cartoon series about Mr. Peabody & Sherman so I am unsure whether this has stayed loyal to the original or has offended original fans. However, for me I found this a very entertaining movie that had me captivated from beginning to the end 🙂 . The characters they introduced were all likeable; Mr. Peabody (Ty Burrell), Sherman (Max Charles) and Penny (Ariel Winter). The animation was also very good 😀 . I really enjoyed the storyline as it was well thought-out with plenty of humour as well as some issues suitable for children. The comedy made me laugh but I did appreciate the rift between the characters. We saw how Sherman struggled at school at the beginning and how he clashes with his dad as the movie continues (you will see when you watch it 😛 ). I liked the characters we met through history as it made playful jokes but was smart with storyline to not be too ridiculous 😛 . This is a rather unique story that can be seen as predicable but I don’t think so. It is aimed for the family and I think both children and adults can be entertained by this movie from Dreamworks 🙂 . I also found Odysseus’ reaction to a certain character at the end was very funny (won’t say which character as that would spoil 😛 ). Overall, this is a great movie that I would happily watch again and would recommend 😀 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
