Throughout, the film remains one spunky wall-to-wall action film with several one-liners and lots of attitude.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a well-made film that carries a broad appeal.

A flawless remake that maintains the eccentric tone and wit of the original animated shorts.

This film is inventive, fascinating and endearing but also sketch-lite, a trifle dull in colour-muting 3D and emotionally detached.

This DreamWorks release avoids emotion in favor of toon-time movement.

I'll be doggoned if 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' isn't a refreshing 'paws' from the run-of-the-mill movies that often serve as family entertainment

The film has an excellent pro-education, pro-history, pro-science, pro-geek, pro-nerd, pro-smart message, a swathe of historical tidbits, and awesome progressive details such as a schoolmate in a wheelchair for no plot reason (and never commented on).

...a vehicle that's as empty as it is entertaining.

The film has been a monster hit, so it's doing its dance with the demographic the way its supposed to. Still, one wonders whether fans of the original show will go with the bandwagon. This reviewer found the film plastic and too predictable.

Mr. Peabody proudly announces "there's no doubt about it...every dog should have a boy." And every boy (and girl) should go see "Mr. Peabody & Sherman."

The Mr. Peabody and Sherman segments that aired on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show were brief, witty, and charmingly slight, but this big-screen version is long, loud, and visually exhausting.

Too dull and mediocre to be interesting or interestingly bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Much of the time travel stuff is rushed with too much being squeezed into its 90 minute duration.

I thought it was really sweet. We've seen a couple of movies about adoption lately and there's something very sweet about that whole scenario as well.

It's a pleasant, often amusing, family film with lots of kid-friendly jokes and puns but also plenty of references that will go over the heads of the smaller members of the audience.

Evan Williams
The Australian

Everything moves at a brisk pace, the voice cast has plenty of talent, and there's no shortage of witty lines.

What's more surprising is how much of the original's spirit DreamWorks is able to inject into a feature film that'll entertain young 'uns as well as potentially cynical parents.

Nevertheless, it breezes by in a whoosh of colour, fan and good humour that will win it more friends than enemies.

The film expands the material to feature length without sacrificing some solid laughs and nostalgic charm.

It is a very sweet story, with plenty of humor and adventure too. The characters are well developed. The artwork is colorful and vivid.
