Mr. Peabody is a business titan, inventor, scientist, gourmand, two-time Olympic medalist and genius...who also happens to be a dog. Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time. But when Sherman breaks the rules of time travel, our two heroes find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future, while Mr. Peabody may face his biggest challenge yet - being a parent.Written by
In the second "Einstein on the Beach" scene, Mrs. Peterson's cocktail has a green umbrella. But when Sherman and Penny call Mr. Peabody, Mrs. Peterson's glass has a pink umbrella in it. Then, in the shot over Sherman's shoulder, when Mr. Peabody jumps down from his chair, Mrs. Peterson's umbrella is green again. 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.

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.
