When Mr. Peabody is dropping Sherman to school for the first time, he reminds Sherman that "I before E, except after C". Although this is a popular saying, there are in fact more examples that break this *weird* rule rather than follow it (there are 923 words in English that contain "cie", for example). See more »

Rich Storyline and a Great Update for This 60s Character
I saw the trailers and I expected it to be more concentrated on time travel and not have much of a story line. Well there is. A fantastic one at that! "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" is a wonderful story about a dog who adopts a boy.
The film also has lots of animated things to love - like history, comedy, romance, suspense and so much more. To make it even better characters come to live thanks to the brilliant voice-over actors such as Ty Burrel and Max Charles.
The film starts when a young puppy is growing up in different shelters. From a very early age he shows everyone how very special he is. He is intelligent, athletic and smooth. He wins many prizes, but his greatest adventure happens when he adopts a boy. Together they go through multiple adventures and troubles but able to stay together.
I love so much about this film. The film itself is fantastic! I love how they take twenty five-minute shows that had old, colored 2-D animation and turn it into modern 3D animation with the use of modern technology.
My favorite scene is when they show the story of how Mr. Peabody adopts Sherman. They show points throughout Sherman's little life of great moments, like his first step in 1709. Then it shows how he finds Sherman. That is definitely a sweet and loving part!
This movie has a bit of violence in it, therefore I recommend it to ages 5-18. I also believe that adults who admired this cartoon kids, will love this new version of these beloved characters. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
