The movie Mr. Peabody & Sherman starts this Friday March 7th! YEAH!!!
This is a movie that everyone will enjoy from Grandparents to Grandchildren. The character was first introduced to us in the 1950's as one of Rocky and Bullwinkle's friends on their animated show. I grew-up watching the re-runs of the cartoons and I absolute love this cute, smart Beagle.
The movie story line is about Mr. Peabody, a loving father, who tries to give his little boy the best life any little boy could want. Things change when his son, Sherman, starts school and encounters a bully named Penny. Trying to be a good parent Mr. Peabody invites Penny and her family over for dinner. That is when things go wrong and the WABAC, a time machine (prononunced Wayback), is used without permission and an adventure begins. Through a series of events the main characters visit with Leonard Di Vinci, King Tut and many other history making persons. Those encounters are hilarious and memorable.
The movie had me talking to the screen and laughing my socks off. I saw it in 3D but because I wear glasses I prefer the standard definition. Overall, I give this movie (4) out of (5) stars, which is my highest grade so far. I hope you take your entire family to see it. It is a fun story that will keep you laughing and asking questions about history. I came home and had to research King Tut to find out more about him.
Sidenote: WABAC is short for Wavelength Acceleration Bidirectional Asychronous Controller
