Review

Our Score
Take one genius (who just happens to be a talking dog), add his adopted human son and a time machine, and what do you get? A crazy, irreverent history lesson from DreamWorks Animation that's terrific family entertainment. Courtesy of Mr Peabody's WABAC invention, the canine and his kid are able to go back in time to meet history's greats, from King Tut to Gandhi. But when Sherman breaks the rules in a bid to impress a girl, the space-time continuum gets all messed-up as the past and present begin to merge, and it's left to our heroes to disentangle things. Part time-trip extravaganza, part father/son bonding story, Rob Minkoff's film is cleverly written, warm-hearted, fast-paced and fun. The historical references will go right over the heads of younger kids. But don't worry, they'll still love it.

Summary

A super-intelligent talking dog invents a time machine and adopts a human boy to assist with his experiments. The curious youngster cannot resist meddling with the invention - with disastrous results - and the duo have to journey into the past to undo the damage done to the course of history. Animated comedy, with the voices of Ty Burrell and Max Charles.
