Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine - The WABAC - to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the time-space continuum, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.So, what did you think of Sherman and Mr Peabody?
I liked the fighting of Penny. The fighting of Penny [hand gestures, karate chop style]. I liked the round thing.
Yes, the WABAC.
What was your favourite part of the movie?
I liked the killing to get Penny away. The killing. [ed: for the record, I couldn't recall anyone being killed or dying in this movie - even "the baddies" had happy endings]
What happened in that part?
Fighting came to climb up the building, and he went on the WABAC home. [here I think Milkbaby is referring to a particularly exciting rescue of Penny from the ancient Egyptians, in which Sherman and Mr Peabody climb inside a large statue and impersonate a God who tells them to let her go]
What did you think of Mr Peabody?
He did great yoga. He did standing like that (gesticulates), with her tail, like that too. It was very funny.
And I know the fighting, the fighting to get Penny back.
Where did they go in the WABAC?
To home. Where else? And to Penny, when Penny doesn't kill, mama. Do they go to ancient Rome? Yes they did, and they're up the elevator. What about to renaissance Italy? They went to the honey bees. The saw a big guy. Mr Peabody bites someone. A big guy. He had pink and white.
What about Sherman?
Sherman is a nice boy, and Mr Peabody is a nice boy. Sherman looks like this tall (hand gestures).
Mr Peabody is a dog.
Mr Peabody is a dog. Silly me ding dong.
How old do you think Sherman is?
Sherman is four years old. He turns five and goes to school.
Does he like school?
Yes he does.
Does he make friends there? Yes. What friends? Just all of them. They don't have toys there.
What else happened in the movie?
Oh, it did. What about a different movie? Madagascar.
Rating: *** (worth leaving the house for if you're desperate to find something to entertain your toddler)
