Mr. Peabody and Sherman - review

Mr. Peabody and Shermanare a family consisting of a talking dog who is also one of the world's greatest scientists and his adopted son Sherman. Just imagine a U rated version of Brian and Stewie Griffin and you are on the right track.

Peabody has created a time machine called the WABAC which he uses to teach Sherman about history.

When Sherman uses the machine to impress a fellow classmate and Penny gets engaged to King Tut, Peabody must step in and try and get them back to the present without creating a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case scenario.

Essentially this is a family-friendly animated version of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure with Sherman and Penny as the Wyld Stallyns and Mr. Peabody as Rufus.

An enjoyable and witty adventure with highlights including Leonardo da Vinci's wooden child, Patrick Warbuton (Joe from Family Guy) as an enthusiastic Agammenon and an unexpected Oedipus gag in a sweet movie you'll happily spend some time with.

3 stars
