More Info:
  • Stephen Whitty

    The film also has the original show's spirit and some of its old-fashioned charm.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • David Gritten

    It’s sweet-natured and amusing, with a story to captivate kids; yet the script has enough witty touches to keep adults laughing too.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    The spirit of the thing – the way it champions intellectual curiosity and critical thinking – warmed this nerd’s heart tremendously.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Back in his day, Mr. Peabody was a dog whose over-civility had bite. Now he's a genius you want to cuddle with.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Has a cool, midcentury-modern look (dog and boy live in a populuxe Manhattan penthouse) and a voice cast that may not be A-list but fits the bill nicely.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is a whip-smart, consistently funny and good-natured film with some terrific voice performances and one of the most hilarious appearances ever by an animated version of a living human being.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    In the film’s sharpest visual sequence, they land in ancient Egypt, with the filmmakers entertainingly cribbing from “Indiana Jones” and “The Wizard of Oz” to get them out of tight spots.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sean Daly

    Before getting sucked into a what-the-wormhole ending that will scramble young brains, time-travel romp Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a fast, fun 3-D getaway.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Loaded with improbable cultural references (Sherman totes a Stephen Hawking lunchbox and uses words like “eponymous”), I fear Mr. Peabody and Sherman may be a bit too brainy to fully connect with contemporary movie audiences.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Things drag, here and there. But kids will dig the slapstick, the talking dog and giggle at what flies out of the Sphinx’s butt, or drops from the rear-end of the Trojan Horse. Adults will be tickled at the usual Dreamworks parade of one-liners, running gags and puns, and feel a little sentimental.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    With more sentiment and splash than the original’s sharp wit, Mr. Peabody & Sherman ends up teaching the same lesson as “Peabody’s Improbable History”: every dog should have a boy.

    Time Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Mr. Peabody & Sherman is slight, but it’s exceedingly charming, making good use of a talented voice cast.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    [The film] is not perfect, but it is fast-moving, intermittently witty and pretty good fun.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    It's better than OK, and a few elements sing; but overall it frustrates. Its delights come from its willingness to depart from formula, but formula still rules it. Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Parents will get the historical jokes but are unlikely to be amused; kids won’t get them, but might laugh anyway.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Lively, educational and intermittently amusing. The fun, however, grows strained and formulaic as the movie goes on.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The whole thing has an amiable, gag-to-gag vibe for most of the first hour.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The animation style mirrors the original, which is simple in an appealing way. It is particularly effective in the action sequences, which make the most of animation's ability to create a playful reality. But the multi-layered historical references designed to be adroitly wry are a trickier gambit.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Burrell doesn’t quite capture the wry deadpan of the original, but then, neither does the movie. That’s okay.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kate Stables

    Despite top-notch visuals and versatile voice-work from Ty Burrell’s (Modern Family) doting doggy dad and Alison Janney’s monstrous social worker, it lacks the "Up"-style warmth to be best in show.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    There’s a good-hearted father and son tale at the heart of the madness here, but the surroundings are sometimes a little too silly for true greatness.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It's a headspinningly wacky premise, and it takes a little while for the audience to get up to speed, but once this is achieved, there's an awful lot of unexpected fun to be had, boasting zany adventures with various historical figures.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    The narrative’s time-travel element allows for plenty of fluffy, fleet-footed action.

    Variety Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    A pleasant, polished, but somewhat by-the-numbers effort.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    The film plays with some funny ideas about time travel, and like any good time travel movie, it flirts with paradox and what happens when you violate the rules of time and space. It doesn't really go far enough with those ideas, though, and the end result is too often timid instead of brash and silly.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Kevin McFarland

    Unlike the whimsical, slapstick-driven shorts on which it’s based, this feature-length adaptation adds an obligatory emotional arc that feels at odds with the zany spirit of historical time-travel tales.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    You might need the assistance of a time machine to find a child who is clamoring for a Mr. Peabody & Sherman feature film remake.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    More than anything Minkoff's project feels like a protracted episode of "Jimmy Neutron," a show with characters for whom I don't have the same affection.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Rob Minkoff’s film has the generic feel of a kids’ movie that’s trying to please everyone. It’s not horrible. In fact, it’s agreeable enough. But nothing more.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The film respects its cartoon roots, but never its audience.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    It's the accumulation of a set of ideas that a bunch of creative types and executives think would be clever, instead of something that actually delivers on an engaging entertainment level.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    This feature-length Mr Peabody and Sherman is by no means unbearable: there are a few decent gags, and the episodic plot just about manages to hold the interest. But there’s little here for any but the most easy-to-please youngsters.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    The film spent roughly a dozen years in development, and the moronic, corporate detritus from that long time warp is strewn about like so many improbable history lessons.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    By visual standards alone, the characters, rendered in eye-popping 3-D, resemble nothing so much as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats. They’re just as lifeless and inexpressive, too.
