Film review: Mr. Peabody & Sherman
What a fun time at the movies. It starts out strong and loses a little momentum once it hits Florence, but there's enough going on to keep grown-ups, their children, and fans of the original TV show happy. No fidgeting from my 6 year old.
And the best part is: No princesses!
The standout: Patrick Warburton as Agememnon; he gives a little two-minute rant which will keep you laughing the whole time.
The stumble: Their solution to the character-showing-up-twice-in-same-time conundrum disturbed my son. This has been a problem since "Back to the Future." DC Comics in the '60s had the right idea. It cannot be done!
