Mr. Peabody & Sherman (movie review)


I know, I know – the trailer is terrible.  Ignore it!

I gotta tell ya, I had no ambition to see Mr. Peabody & Sherman.  ZERO.  But, I heard it was good and I had the opportunity to see it for free (on a plane), so I gave it a chance and holy hell, was it worth it. 

Maybe it helped that I had low expectations, but still, this flick does not kid around.  Mr. Peabody & Sherman is action packed from start to finish.  The 92 minute running time flies by, as it should – movies don’t need to be padded up to the 120 minute mark by default.

There are a lot of recognizable names lending voice talents (Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci ), but none are as recognizable as Patrick Warburton.  I’m a big fan of his animated work (especially The Venture Brothers) , but it did kinda take me out of the moment.  This is the most Warburtony I’ve ever heard him.  He’s not bad in the roll and it’s not a problem, but I did get distracted for a few seconds.  This might be just because I have so much Warburton on the brain (Seinfeld, Family Guy, The Tick…), but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I don’t want to spoil the movie for you – just check it out.  It’s fast paced, both fun and funny but also has some stuff for the Star Trek nerd in me.  It’s fair to say that I loved Mr. Peabody & Sherman  – I’m giving it a 9 out of 10.
