In anticipation of the film's release, a prequel short film, Almost Home (2014), was shown prior to theatrical screenings of the earlier DreamWorks Animation film Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014), as well as Rio 2 (2014) (produced by Blue Sky Studios but also distributed by 20th Century Fox). Both of these films starred Leslie Mann. See more »

Took my 8-year-old girls. It was cute. They enjoyed it well enough.
But on the car ride home, when I asked about their favorite part, the best they could come up with was the cow joke (I won't repeat it).
After all the great animated kid's movies of the last 10 years (Nemo, Shrek, Cars, Frozen, etc), this one is completely forgettable. In a month or two, my girls won't even remember it. Can't imagine they'll ever ask to get a DVD or watch it at home.
I'm not sorry I took them, nor was it a waste of money. But we are so spoiled by such great animated movies that a mediocre one like this becomes disappointing.
