Watch Mr. Peabody & Sherman - Alternative Versions.
After the February smash hit: "The Lego Movie," "Mr. Peabody & Sherman"
certainly does have a tough act to follow. Despite this, "Mr. Peabody &
Sherman" certainly does bring another high-quality piece of family
entertainment to the big screen.
Surprisingly, the film's story is quite strong. Based on the retro
cartoon of the same name, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" centers on a highly
intelligent dog named Mr. Peabody (excellently voiced by Modern Family
star, Ty Burrell) who adopts a young boy named Sherman (also
excellently voiced by 8-year-old Max Charles). Peabody takes Sherman on
adventures through time with his super advanced time machine known as
the "Way Back". After a series of incidents, the duo must travel to
different time periods and eventually have to fix a potential hole in
the space time continuum.
Many recent films based on retro cartoons (such as the abysmal "Scooby
Doo" and "Smurfs" films) have failed to provide a good screenplay to
accompany its animated hijinks. This film, however, is packed with
witty dialogue and good morals about unconventional families,
fatherhood, and childhood struggles. Mr. Peabody and Sherman are
surprisingly deep characters. The fact that Sherman has been raised by
a dog does eventually cause a rift between the two. In the beginning of
the movie, Sherman is teased at school and called a "dog" because his
father is one. Also faced with his own maturing, Sherman wishes to do
more things on his own. Peabody, meanwhile is apprehensive of Sherman
doing things on his own, as he fears inside that Sherman will outgrow
him. This is quite a lot of conflict for a "kid's movie."
Luckily, the thematic elements are interspersed with charming humor and
exciting visuals. Each time period is filled with beautifully animated
landscapes and enjoyable characters with top-notch vocal performances.
In 18th century France, Marie Antoinette (voiced by Lauri Fraser) is
portrayed as a bubbly, naive, cake-obsessed aristocrat who is
constantly stuffing her face with dessert. In ancient Egypt, palm
trees, pyramids and towering statues show a clear rose gallery of
effort from the animation team.
It's also worth pointing out that this film has some of the finest
voice acting I have ever heard in an animated feature. Ty Burrell and
Max Charles bring believable emotion and jocularity to Peabody and
Sherman respectively. Burrell gives Peabody a suitably intellectual and
clear sounding voice, giving an extra jolt of likability to the
character. Max Charles shows an excessive amount of talent for an 8-
year-old (probably younger when the dialogue was recorded), making
Sherman a believable young boy with a roller-coaster of emotions
throughout. An all-star supporting cast including Steve Colbert, Ariel
Winter, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Warburton, Dennis Haysbert, Allison
Janney, Leslie Mann and even Mel Brooks are certainly a treasure to
listen to as well.
In regards to its historical accuracy, though this film does certainly
have its share of jarring anachronisms (such as heart-printed underwear
and an actual working flying machine made by Leonardo da Vinci), there
is certainly a decent amount of informative elements in the historical
scenes. Kids may actually be delighted to learn about how Marie
Antoinette helped ignite the French Revolution and how George
Washington didn't really cut down a cherry tree. The film makes the
wise decision of being a colorful family adventure film while still
having some informative elements. LA Times' film critic Betsey Sharkey
recently criticized this movie for being "too smart for its own good,"
saying: "Mr. Peabody's "teaching moments" will sail right over the
heads of kids while requiring adults to pay attention." With all due
respect, Ms. Sharkey, I feel like the "teaching moments" are what make
this movie stand out from other family fare. The fact that the
filmmakers bring some education to the screenplay really shows that
they have faith in a kid's ability to watch a movie.
In all fairness, one common criticism I do somewhat understand is the
film's somewhat convoluted second act. Without giving anything away, I
do have to admit things get pretty hectic. However, after many years of
watching movies with time travel, I've learned to put down my complaint
notebook and enjoy the movie. Let's face it: it's pretty much a
guarantee that a movie involving time travel will have at least a
couple of plot holes. Even excellent time travel films like "Looper"
and "Back to the Future" have plot holes. However, those discussions
are for another day.
At the end of the day, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" is a beautiful, funny,
and even heartfelt film that families from every background will get a
kick out of. It is enjoyable to watch, and I dare even say it's one of
Dreamworks' best efforts to date.
