Delightfully entertaining and light heartfelt fun, MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN felt like the intellectual's BILL AND TED. Coming from someone who wasn't overly familiar with its ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE origins, I'm glad they did explain themselves at the beginning. It was interesting and definitely informative for kids. My only fault would be that the little girl who Sherman befriends seems to be a bit like a bad seed, rotten to the core, and despite trying to show her changing and growing, she never quite feels like a good person to me. Other than that, loved the film, and sure, I'd recommend it.

It was cute, it was witty and they knew they were making fun of themselves half of the time. They made enough jokes to keep both the parents and kids laughing.

I can’t say I really liked it, there wasn’t really a moment that I was relaxed enough to enjoy the time traveling adventure they go on as a result of the overly intense, annoying, and unrealistic plot line that brought them to that point. The social worker trying to tear the family apart, the bratty kid that assaulted Sherman at the school, that fact he didn’t tell Mr. Peabody that that was the real reason why he fought back; it’s just to much to bare and it’s not funny… it did have its redeeming moments with time travel and humorous happenings during those parts, but the rest of the story is just to dark and unrealistic for a comedy kids movie.

I so wanted to like this movie, being a big fan of How to Train Your Dragon, but I could not watch any more than 5 minutes of this. It was not funny or engaging.

Finally a film based on a very good cartoon has succeeded in being as good, if not better, than the original.
Full of slapstick and visual treats for the kids, yet smart enough to make the adults snicker. ( just like the original).
Nice going.

This movie does not come up to the standards of the original clips from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show. Besides, nobody should be deluded into thinking that the 'history' depicted in the movie is in any way supposed to represent the facts. A disappointment.

Whether he’s discussing the inherent futility of fetching a stick or splitting an atom in his spare time there is no doubt that the suave bespectacled Mr. Peabody is indeed the world’s most intelligent dog. Living in an opulent New York penthouse with his adopted human son Sherman (also bespectacled but not quite as suave) Peabody has amassed a considerable fortune thanks to his impressive catalogue of inventions. But his greatest achievement yet, the WABAC time machine, is one he keeps to himself. Traveling back and forth to the past in order to teach Sherman human history firsthand, Mr. Peabody takes great pains to ensure the precocious boy doesn’t do anything to alter history. And then one day Sherman inadvertently tells his bitchy little classmate Penny about the WABAC and before he can yell “NO!” the two find themselves in ancient Egypt. A series of temporal misadventures ensue which threaten to tear apart the entire space-time continuum unless Mr. Peabody can once again save the day. For those of us old enough to remember the "Mr. Peabody’s Improbable History" segments of the "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" this high-tech bit of nostalgia is sure to elicit a smile or two, especially the future retro animation which calls to mind old ViewMaster reels. Of course grievous liberties are taken with history—Da Vinci engages in a slapstick bitch fight with a truculent Mona Lisa; France’s post revolutionary “Reign of Terror” is reduced to a series of stale “Let them eat cake” gags; and the Trojan War becomes a Greek pissing contest with Patrick Warburton’s Agamemnon sounding like a classical revision of Family Guy’s Joe Swanson—but it all looks swell and the tepid dialogue is peppered with enough of Mr. Peabody’s signature bad puns to keep you wincing.

This movie is very fun. While remaining somewhat true to the cartoon, i.e. romps through time and a very intelligent dog, it also adds a new layer with the subplot of Mr. Peabody and Sherman's relationship as father and son. Kind, heartwarming, and very entertaining.
