Poppin' Off- Mr. Peabody and Sherman

My children were super excited to see Mr Peabody and Sherman. They had a countdown going, along with their birthday countdowns, that's how excited they were. So when it opened last Friday, my husband and I took them to see it. My kids loved it, and I thought it was pretty good too.

There are some history and science references in the movie, which I think is really good for children to see. Not enough to make the movie boring though, and definitely not enough for anyone to consider it an educational movie. The movie is also full of puns, which just made me think of that Spongebob episode...
The puns in the movie weren't horrible, but there were enough of them that I rolled my eyes a few times at the end. The graphics were pretty good, not up to Pixar standards, but pretty close. The character that annoyed me the most was Penny. She obviously needed to start out a brat to make the movie plot happen, but they could've toned it down way before they did. Overall,  I would recommend seeing this movie. It has a lot of humor and the story doesn't drag along too much.

  1. I LOVED Peabody and Sherman Cartoons! Back when Nickelodeon was playing Rocky and Bullwinkle reruns (a show I am still obsessed with!) I would watch these and Fractured Fairytales, and Roger Ramjet and George of the Jungle on Cartoon Network.
    Sorry...I'm just really glad to read it's enjoyable! :D


I look forward to reading your words of wisdom. Don't freak out if you don't see your comment right away, I do moderate :) Thanks!
