Marie Antoinette was Austrian, not french as represented in the movie. There is also no evidence that she made the 'cake' remark. See more »
Our story begins high over New York City, in the luxurious penthouse apartment of perhaps the most unlikely genius the world has ever known.

At first I was not interested to watch this film since the poster looked absolutely juvenile. The characters and the title did not appeal, looking and sounding so old-fashioned. My kids did not really want to watch it as well. However, good initial reviews got me intrigued to see it.
Mr. Peabody is special little white dog who can talk, read tomes, graduate college, earn a Nobel Prize, an all-around talented character, who can do anything under the son. He adopts an abandoned baby boy named Sherman due to his desire to give the boy what he never had growing up, a home.
Mr. Peabody and Sherman share a secret activity together, traipsing around history with an amazing time machine. This invention by Mr. Peabody can take them to any time in history he likes, allowing them to meet and be friends with all the great figures in history.
On Sherman's first day at school, a sassy little girl named Penny bullies him, and he retaliates by biting. This altercation leads to a series of events which may cost Mr. Peabody not only his custody of his beloved Sherman, but may alter the whole fabric of human history as we know it.
The whole absurd concept of a genius dog adopting a boy really did not ring well with me. Thankfully, the execution and the story about them travelling through history did sustain my interest. As a history buff, I enjoyed seeing the various periods in history and the characters come alive and interact with our protagonists. Kids who have no interest in history will probably just laugh shallowly at the crazy visual comedy.
The animation is okay, a bit on the old-fashioned style. Dreamworks characters do not really grab you at first sight. "Shrek," "How to Train Your Dragon" and "The Croods," I almost did not watch because of the unusual (or even ugly) artwork. Luckily I was convinced to see them by good word of mouth, and I ended up loving them. This one I liked, not really love. 7/10.
