Mr Peabody and Sherman is an animation from Fox about Mr Peabody, the world’s smartest scientist, who just happens to be a dog, who adopts Sherman, because his reasoning is if boys can adopt dogs, then dogs can adopt boys and the court goes along with it. The reason I like this, other than some of the clever inside jokes that were really meant for the adults and not the kids, and a little bit of tackiness that you’re not used to seeing in animation, which I though was lovely, is that it somehow glorifies science, it makes science relevant, and any movie that does that, I’m in favor of. It also looks back into history, which is not bad, it is not going to win any Oscars, but it is charming, your kids will like and you will get a kick out of it, 3 stars
