We've been getting excited about Mr. Peabody & Sherman since back in October, when we had the pleasure of meeting Ty Burrell, the voice of the film's "alpha male." After previewing the movie a couple of weeks ago, I have to say, I've been telling everyone who'll listen just how great it is. Entertaining for kids, fun for parents, and with plenty of historical adventures packed in, it should be on your must-see list.
The animated feature film kicks off with an introduction to Mr. Peabody and Sherman's one-of-a kind family. The multifaceted Mr. Peabody (a dog) rescues and adopts Sherman as an infant, after he's been abandoned on a street corner. Luckily for Sherman, Mr. Peabody isn't just an ordinary dog — his expansive résumé of accomplishments includes inventing Zumba, befriending Gandhi, and, of particular relevance, inventing the WABAC, a time machine.
When a dinner that's meant to smooth over a riff between Sherman and a classmate takes an unexpected turn, the boy and his friend (and, spoiler alert, object of his affection), Penny, embark upon a journey throughout time. You'll learn, you'll laugh, and you'll develop a true connection with the lovable animated characters in Dreamworks's latest venture.
Here, six reasons that you and your family should get excited about hitting the theater on this weekend for the best animated flick that's hit the big screen in a while!
