Today’s post will be a short one because there’s very little I can say that will make much cohesive sense. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I could go on and on but that would be a bit obnoxious.
By now you’ve all seen the most recent posting by my big kid, Jenny, who reviewed Mr. Peabody and Sherman. Did she like the movie? Yep. Did I like the movie? Yep. Did it make much sense? Uh, I’m not so sure but I think that’s okay. It was good hilarious fun that made a lot of references that the adults will get a kick at and there was plenty of goofy stuff for the kids too.
Mr. Peabody and Sherman is one of those funny kids movies that has a lot of action and keeps the momentum going even if much of it makes very little sense. Read on for a few more details which really truly will make very little sense until AFTER you watch the movie!
Kids Movie Review: So, about Mr. Peabody and Sherman
My big kid summed up the movie Mr. Peabody and Sherman quite well. The movie is about an incredibly intelligent dog named Mr. Peabody who adopts a human boy named Sherman. Sherman in fact does go to school and on his first day has a fallout with a girl named Penny who is pretty jealous of how much smarter he is.
Fast forward, Penny picks on him, and next thing you know Ms. Grunion is at the school threatening to do an investigation at the Peabody household to make sure it’s fit for a human boy to be in. With a brilliant idea, Mr. Peabody invites Penny’s family over to make amends so Ms. Grunion can see that his home is quite fit for Sherman.
Of course, all chaos breaks loose when Sherman shows Penny the WABAC, a time machine made by Mr. Peabody. The rest of the movie is completely out of this world and involves trips to see Leonardo Da Vinci, Ancient Egypt, the Trojan war, and then some. I can’t even explain it all but it was a fun ride nonetheless.
At the end of the movie, we all learn a few really important lessons. We learn that Sherman is more capable than others think and more importantly, we learn that it’s okay to be a dog.
Trust me, watch the movie and it’ll all make sense.
So, if you have some spare time, get your family to the movies and watch Mr. Peabody and Sherman. It’s a heartwarming tale about a genius of a dog and his equally bright human child, Sherman. The one thing I did notice while I was at the theatres was the variety of ages in the audience. I saw really young children and I saw some pretty big school agers too so the movie definitely has a wider audience appeal.
