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.
