Such a cute and informative movie. I loved everything about this movie and I think this movie can be enjoyed by any age group but especially young kids. I loved the characters in the movie especially Mr. Peabody. I love all the problems they face in the movie and the way they deal with them. One of the major things I liked about this movie were the lessons. One of the major ones I think was that one does not have to follow what society does. This was showed when it was Mr. Peabody who actually adopted Sherman. This was a really good movie and I totally recommend everyone to watch it. I recommend this movie to kids aged 3-13 (others can enjoy it as well). I give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars - @terrificbooklover of the Teen

The movie itself rocks but, when my brother and I were watching it close to the end it started to skip and then it complexly froze on us. We tried many times to make it work but the disc is just broken and won't let you finish the movie. It was a bummer!

It was cute, it was witty and they knew they were making fun of themselves half of the time. They made enough jokes to keep both the parents and kids laughing.

I can’t say I really liked it, there wasn’t really a moment that I was relaxed enough to enjoy the time traveling adventure they go on as a result of the overly intense, annoying, and unrealistic plot line that brought them to that point. The social worker trying to tear the family apart, the bratty kid that assaulted Sherman at the school, that fact he didn’t tell Mr. Peabody that that was the real reason why he fought back; it’s just to much to bare and it’s not funny… it did have its redeeming moments with time travel and humorous happenings during those parts, but the rest of the story is just to dark and unrealistic for a comedy kids movie.

I so wanted to like this movie, being a big fan of How to Train Your Dragon, but I could not watch any more than 5 minutes of this. It was not funny or engaging.

Finally a film based on a very good cartoon has succeeded in being as good, if not better, than the original.
Full of slapstick and visual treats for the kids, yet smart enough to make the adults snicker. ( just like the original).
Nice going.

Whether he’s discussing the inherent futility of fetching a stick or splitting an atom in his spare time there is no doubt that the suave bespectacled Mr. Peabody is indeed the world’s most intelligent dog. Living in an opulent New York penthouse with his adopted human son Sherman (also bespectacled but not quite as suave) Peabody has amassed a considerable fortune thanks to his impressive catalogue of inventions. But his greatest achievement yet, the WABAC time machine, is one he keeps to himself. Traveling back and forth to the past in order to teach Sherman human history firsthand, Mr. Peabody takes great pains to ensure the precocious boy doesn’t do anything to alter history. And then one day Sherman inadvertently tells his bitchy little classmate Penny about the WABAC and before he can yell “NO!” the two find themselves in ancient Egypt. A series of temporal misadventures ensue which threaten to tear apart the entire space-time continuum unless Mr. Peabody can once again save the day. For those of us old enough to remember the "Mr. Peabody’s Improbable History" segments of the "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" this high-tech bit of nostalgia is sure to elicit a smile or two, especially the future retro animation which calls to mind old ViewMaster reels. Of course grievous liberties are taken with history—Da Vinci engages in a slapstick bitch fight with a truculent Mona Lisa; France’s post revolutionary “Reign of Terror” is reduced to a series of stale “Let them eat cake” gags; and the Trojan War becomes a Greek pissing contest with Patrick Warburton’s Agamemnon sounding like a classical revision of Family Guy’s Joe Swanson—but it all looks swell and the tepid dialogue is peppered with enough of Mr. Peabody’s signature bad puns to keep you wincing.

This movie is very fun. While remaining somewhat true to the cartoon, i.e. romps through time and a very intelligent dog, it also adds a new layer with the subplot of Mr. Peabody and Sherman's relationship as father and son. Kind, heartwarming, and very entertaining.
