This film should be getting a lot more love! I think we all have a general idea that Dreamworks could use the help of some revenue in their box office, and not in just DVD sales. Before, I had left a short review on a different post, and I’m honestly not sure where Dreamworks stands at the moment, but let’s play it safe here and give it a nice, full review. (There shouldn’t be any spoilers)
Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a film that is filled with some clever dialogue (all coming from Mr. Peabody, of course) in terms of their puns, and they have plenty of slapstick jokes. The story is one that’ll keep you entertained and the animation is meant to be a more polished style of it’s 1950’s counterpart and maintains its smoothness and basic shapes. What really makes the movie is the interaction between the title characters, and how they come to terms in bridging their differences. Sherman goes through his own sort of bildungsroman in terms of self discovery and confidence as well as making Mr. Peabody realize that not everything has to be a life lesson.
Although the plot seems to veer slightly it’s still consistent, and you’ll have fun with the destinations they take. There’s plenty of action throughout the film and it doesn’t drag, though there’s a sizable introduction to the characters in the beginning (I felt it didn’t take anything away, but some may think otherwise) it helps give the target audience who hasn’t seen the original cartoon the context required.
The voice actors chosen were well done, Mr. Peabody retains his sophistication and charm while Sherman has a voice that really conveys those kid like intonations and loud, unashamed cheerfulness and admiration (of course the voice actor is a child, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that this kid has some talent in really bringing out this character and making him come to life). Penny, the ‘love interest’ and girl companion to Sherman, also retains a nice voice actor that highlights the essence of her character, but lacks at some times. Sherman’s voice (to me personally), is the most well done.
After watching the movie, I had sought out the original cartoons, and was pleasantly surprised to see how true they managed to stick to the characters and overall feel of the show (they even introduced Mr. Peabody in almost the same exact way in the first episode). Granted, they added a more emotional bond between Mr. Peabody and his “pet boy”, which the tv series never really permitted (specifically by NOT calling Sherman a “pet”, which serves as a minor conflict in the movie, and instead dubbing him as adopted to give it a more endearing feel). But this is the screen adaptation, and it’s somewhat required to create a large enough arc to give these characters a more dimensional personality and family oriented message.
Overall, Mr.Peabody and Sherman is a fun film and will definitely make you laugh or smile. With characters going through struggles both fantastical and real, it’ll make you care for their relationship and outcomes. Though it does seem to lack something that keeps it from achieving that “perfect movie” mark, it’s still very much worthy of your attention, and is great to view with friends and family alike. If you’re looking for something good and can’t seem to find anything on Netflix, and have already seen the major blockbuster, don’t shirk this movie! Mr. Peabody and Sherman may surprise you.
Friendly Easter reminder that Bilbo Baggins is a canonical bunny rabbit.
