While on an adventure in their Wabac time machine, the pair accidentally cause a rift in time and must go on other adventures to fix it.

It's time for the aliens to go home. ABC has cancelled The Neighbors after two seasons and 44 episodes.
A family sitcom, The Neighbors follows the Weaver clan as they try to live in a beautiful gated community that's filled with alien visitors from the planet Zabvron. The ensemble castmembers are Jami Gertz, Lenny Venito, Simon Templeman, Toks Olagundoye, Tim Jo, Clara Mamet, Ian Patrick, Isabella Cramp, and Max Charles.
After a first season of mediocre ratings, the series could have been cancelled last May. However, ABC decided to stick with it and scheduled it on Friday nights. Expectations on Fridays are lower but The Neighbors' ratings ended up being too low for a third season renewal.
Castmate Olagundoye tweeted the news, "Tweeps, I have known since last night, but was not able to share the news until it was announced publicly. »
Another week, another superhero movie (I know, I.m feeling oversaturated all of a sudden . Captain America last month, the X-Men folks and Spidey this month, argh!) . this time, it.s the sequel to .The Amazing Spider-Man. from the collaboration of director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
Sally Field returns as the touching Aunt May and joining the cast are Jamie Foxx as Electro, Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin, and Paul Giamatti as Rhino. Yup, more villains! But is more always better? Check out my movie review of .The Amazing Spider-Man 2..
We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, »

Ok, so we arrive at the New York movie theater where the premiere for the Amazing SpiderMan 2 is going to be held and we can see the red carpet but we have to wait with the rest of the press before we're let in. My
mom and I are waiting and this security dude comes over. He was a very stereotypical security dude and he was dressed in a suit and had an earpiece so he can communicate with the other stereotypical security dudes and a thick "New Yorker" accent and, to top it off, his hair was slicked back and he was wearing RayBan sunglasses, even though the sun was no where in sight. He looked like he could've been pulled right out of
the movie premiering at the theater. He calls for »

DreamWorks' Fast-Paced Actioner Turns in Lackluster Debut - A Short Life Expectancy for Scott Waugh Film. "Bad Words" Very Impressive with $20,000 Per-Theater Average. 20th Century Fox has a solid animated winner on its hands in "Peabody & Sherman" as the film which debuted in second place last weekend behind Warners' "300: Rise of An Empire," flipped positions, and managed a solid $21.2 million. That takes the Rob Minkoff film's domestic total past $63.1 million, while overseas the film voiced by Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Allison Janney, Stanley Tucci and Leslie Mann, has accumulated over $69.8 million, making for a worldwide cume of over $133.07 million thus far. In second, "300: Rise of An Empire" showed a change of 58% with $19.1 million earned, which takes the Noam Murro film's Stateside cume to over $78.3 million. International coin is over $87.8 million. That's a worldwide total of over $166.1 million from $110 million. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' distributed "Need for Speed »
Mr. Peabody & Sherman wasn't the No. 1 movie last weekend, that went to R-Rated 300: Rise of an Empire. But, box office analysts think maybe the dog and his boy can take this weekend! We think so - the reviews here at KidsPickFlicks are pretty good! So, what's the big deal about Mr. Peabody & Sherman? Ariel Winter, Max Charles, Karan Brar, Patrick Warburton, Mr. Peabody and Sherman tell you themselves in the video below (thanks to our friends Curtis Harris from "The Haunted Hathaways" and Fanlala for putting these interviews together):

I’m typically not a fan of modern cinematic interpretations of classic television. Let’s face it, Hollywood doesn’t really have the best track record with these types of movies. All I have to do is point to films like Land of the Lost, Speed Racer, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and Dudley Do-Right to make my point. Thankfully though, Mr. Peabody & Sherman doesn’t follow suit and instead rises to the top.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman tells the story of a genius dog and his adopted son Sherman. In order to give Sherman the best education possible, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell) creates a time machine called the Wabac (pronounced “way back”) and takes him to various historical moments in the past. When Sherman goes to school for the first time, this expanded education ruffles the feathers of his newfound class rival, Penny Peterson (Burrell’s Modern Family »

Movies of substance are often overlooked by those full of stylish action or vapid rom-coms. High on the endangered species list are remarkable family films that can both entertain and educate. But I’d gladly be proven wrong if audiences went to go see Mr. Peabody & Sherman in theaters.
Those familiar with the classic Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon will remember this dog and boy duo traveling through world history enlightening us on people of great significance and events that turned the world. They didn’t last too long, most only four or five minutes, but they were a trippy, educational break from watching Bullwinkle try to pull a rabbit out of his hat. Throughout the entire run, Peabody and Sherman stepped into their Wabac (or Wayback) time machine just shy of a 100 times and stood beside figures including Genghis Khan, Helen Keller, Jackie Robinson as well as witnessing the construction of the Great Wall of China. »

Two big films this weekend, we have the animated film "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" and the action-adventure sequel "300: Rise of An Empire."
In "Mr. Peabody & Sherman," it feels like the 1950s all over again! The companion piece of "The Rocky Bullwinkle Show" is now a big-screen event. From the creators of "The Croods" and "How to Train Your Dragon," and director of "The Lion King," the time-travelling adventures of an advanced canine, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell), and his adopted son, Sherman (voiced by Max Charles), are front and center in this animated film.
And, you may miss Gerard Butler in the sequel "300: Rise of an Empire," but is it enough for you to not see the sequel? Have no fear, we have a new hero in Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) who leads the charge against the invading Persian navy. But first, he must deal with the mortal-turned-god, »
Mr. Peabody & Sherman, a nostalgic reboot of a 1960s cartoon duo, follows Peabody and Sherman as they travel through time and then try to repair the space-time continuum.
The plot takes Peabody, a Nobel Prize winner and overwhelmed father, on a trip to fix what he broke during some leisure travel. In order to repair the damage, Peabody passes through history – hitting up Ancient Egypt, Florence during the Renaissance, the Trojan War and the French Revolution. Both Tutankhamen and Vincent Van Gogh make guest appearances.
Voicing Peabody is Modern Family’s Ty Burrell. Burrell’s costar in the series, Ariel Winter, voices Penny Peterson. Stephen Colbert, Alison Janney, Max Charles and Leslie Mann round out the top-billed voice actors.
Critics On ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’
Critics were naturally nervous that the beloved pair that came to be on the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show wouldn't be ably adapted to the big screen – but »
Chicago – Talking dogs have been around for decades in animated movies and television shows, especially the anthropomorphized kind. From the superhero antics of Underdog to the biting sarcasm from the likes of Brian from “Family Guy” - take your pick and you can find a dog to your liking. I always took a shine to Mr. Peabody, the intelligent and resourceful beagle with a penchant for puns.
..who had appeared in misadventurous time-traveling shorts on “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” with his pal Sherman. But that doesn’t mean I was looking forward to DreamWorks Animation’s updated take on these characters for a new 3D computer-animated feature-length film.
From the trailers, it seemed like the quirky wry comic timing of Jay Ward and Ted Key (respectively, the producer and creator of “Peabody’s Improbable History”) was getting swallowed by big action/adventure sequences and dumbed-down humor. Sure enough, »
