Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Back in his day, Mr. Peabody was a dog whose over-civility had bite. Now he's a genius you want to cuddle with."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Mr. Peabody & Sherman has a cool, midcentury-modern look (dog and boy live in a populuxe Manhattan penthouse) and a voice cast that may not be A-list but fits the bill nicely."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"This film is inventive, fascinating and endearing but also sketch-lite, a trifle dull in colour-muting 3D and emotionally detached."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"The film has an excellent pro-education, pro-history, pro-science, pro-geek, pro-nerd, pro-smart message, a swathe of historical tidbits, and awesome progressive details such as a schoolmate in a wheelchair for no plot reason (and never commented on)."
‑ CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
"Mr. Peabody proudly announces "there's no doubt about it...every dog should have a boy." And every boy (and girl) should go see "Mr. Peabody & Sherman.""
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"More puns, less story, please."
‑ Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"Mr. Peabody is fast-paced and jammed with rib-poking historical references, but it couldn't be called witty, even on the broadly winking level of the original cartoon."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"This DreamWorks release avoids emotion in favor of toon-time movement."
‑ Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
"...a vehicle that's as empty as it is entertaining."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The Mr. Peabody and Sherman segments that aired on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show were brief, witty, and charmingly slight, but this big-screen version is long, loud, and visually exhausting."
‑ Perry Seibert, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Fifty years ago, animated entertainment was a lot quieter. But that was my "Mr. Peabody & Sherman." This is someone else's. And it should give them, and even a few open-minded parents, almost just as much giggly fun."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"The film's saving grace is its character design and use of 3D techniques to speed things up in every sense when the plot starts to flag."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
"I'll be doggoned if 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' isn't a refreshing 'paws' from the run-of-the-mill movies that often serve as family entertainment"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"The film has been a monster hit, so it's doing its dance with the demographic the way its supposed to. Still, one wonders whether fans of the original show will go with the bandwagon. This reviewer found the film plastic and too predictable."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Too dull and mediocre to be interesting or interestingly bad."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
