Early in the film Sherman says that the Leaning Tower of Pisa didn't always lean (suggesting that he caused it to lean). In fact the tower of Pisa has always leaned ever since it was built, due to an uneven settling of the foundation. The lean got progressively worse until structural modifications were put in place to reinforce it around the year 2000. It is now declared safe for at least 200 years. However, Peabody cartoons often contain deliberate inaccuracies for the sake of a gag (in the original skit he explains that they're seeing history as it "should have been"), and this in particular is a subtle reference to the Galileo skit from the original cartoons.

Oh. Sorry. You caught me doing my yoga. You were expecting downward dog, perhaps?

Dreamworks' latest animation about a time-travelling dog and his adopted son - how could you resist?
So I went to see this with not much expectation at all, the one trailer I had seen didn't really grab me but I decided to see it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Mr. 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. 8 out of 10.
