With a constant barrage of hilarious visual and verbal gags, this riotous animated adventure might entertain adults more than kids. Although youngsters will enjoy the whizzy pace and manic 3D animation. Based on one of Jay Ward's anarchic 1960s creations (see also Rocky & Bullwinkle), it's a relentless onslaught of jokes and puns, with a hint of educational value thrown in for good measure.
After a lonely puppyhood, the intelligent dog Peabody (voiced by Burrell) studied to become a globally acclaimed artist, sportsman and inventor, eventually adopting a human boy, Sherman (Charles), as his son. But now it's time for Sherman to start school, which isn't easy when you're a genius with a dog as your dad. Sure enough, mean girl Penny (Winter) mercilessly bullies him while Child Services officer Mrs Grunion (Janney) plots to have him taken into care. So Peabody invites Penny's parents (Colbert and Mann) and Grunion over to sort things out. But in an effort to impress her, Sherman shows Penny the Way Back time machine he and Peabody use to explore history. And Penny decides to stay in Ancient Egypt.
The movie barely pauses for breath, racing from the Pyramids to Renaissance Italy for an adventure with Da Vinci (Tucci), then on to the Trojan War and Agamemnon (Warburton). At every step, the script gleefully subverts history with goofy slapstick, poo jokes, movie references and absurd touches that come out of nowhere. It's a remarkably intelligent approach to kids' comedy, and even if the chaos sometimes feels exhausting, it's so funny we don't really mind. And the energetic plotting will delight children as much as the rather surreal idea of having a dog as a dad.

Check out the fun-filled trailer below.
It’s not easy being the world's smartest and most brilliant dog. In fact, it’s pretty darn difficult. Mr. Peabody is taking his endless adventure pallet onto the big screen, with a time-travelling yarn through ancient Greece and Egypt.
Mr Peabody urged Sherman not to use the WABAC
Ol’ Peabody would probably just be sitting around playing scrabble with young Sherman now, if the scamp didn’t have designs on impressing the equally yong but more mischievous Penny Peabody.
Mr. Peabody is doubtlessly the most intelligent and most accomplished dog on the planet, and undeniably outshines the human race too. However, despite his achievements, he is determined to maintain a normal life for his adopted human son Sherman by inviting round Penny a classmate of his with whom he wants Sherman to be friends. She has other ideas, however, and only shows interest when Sherman agrees to show her Mr. Peabody's WABAC - a time machine in which they travel into the past despite being expressly forbidden. When Peabody finds out, he realises that their actions have ripped a hole in the space-time continuum and they are forced to return to the past to re-write history and save the universe. Along the way they meet some of the biggest legends of history, including Leonardo Da Vinci and Sigmund Freud, who help them on their quest.
'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is a brilliantly funny animated movie based on the characters from the 'The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show' in the sixties in the 'Peabody's Improbable History' segments. It has been directed by Rob Minkoff ('The Lion King', 'Stuart Little', 'The Haunted Mansion') and written by Ted Key ('Hazel', 'The Million Dollar Duck', 'Gus') and Craig Wright ('Dirty Sexy Money', 'Underemployed'). 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is set for release in the UK on February 7th 2014.
While 14-year-old Modern Family Ariel Winter remains entangled in a custody battle, her Mother is suing Mathew Borlenghi - a soap opera actor and acting teacher - who commented on an L.A Times piece.
Borlenghi's comment on the L.A. Times website implied Workman calling the cops to protect her daughter was "a total falsehood. It said, "The mother is grasping and clawing to find a way not to lose her money-maker, and hide the fact that she is an abusive monster," and continues, "Having spent time with her, and seeing the way she acted adoringly towards the boy, these accusations are disgusting, just as she is." Workman says in the suit, as a result of the posting, she suffered a loss of reputation as well as "shame, mortification and hurt feeling," for which she now wants damages to be determined by the court. The L.A. Times, however, is not a defendant. Given the propensity for Workman to sue based on things written on the internet, we're going to be very careful.
Winter, 14, was temporarily removed from the custody of her mother Chrisoula "Chrystal" Workman by a court in October, and her sister Shanelle Gray, a 34-year-old mother of two, was given temporary guardianship. Ariel, who has been acting since the age of seven, plays the character of Alex Dunphy, an intelligent teenager, in the critically acclaimed TV show.
The battle for custody of child actress Ariel Winter rumbles on, with her mother Chrystal Workman’s attorneys apparently questioning Winter’s sister Shanelle Gray about her drug usage, in the hope that they might be able to use any admission against her when it comes to trying to prove she’s a bad guardian.
TMZ reports that Workman’s team were specifically asking Gray about her potential consumption of cocaine. Modern Family star Winter is currently at her sister’s following reports of mistreatment at the hands of her mother, but Workman is unhappy about the arrangement and is seeking to regain custody.
Workman’s attorneys came away frustrated after Gray didn’t offer up any answers that suggested any particular problem. She told them that she only tried cocaine once – in 2005 or 2006 at a party. The drug was apparently laced with something else and she ended up feeling sick from it. Gray was also questioned about whether she had ever received any DUI convictions; she said she was pulled over in Los Angeles – again either in 2005 or 2006 – and given a ticket on a night where she’d had “one glass of wine”. It was eventually thrown out after judges decided that her alcohol level was too low. It looks like Workman’s team are going to have dig a little deeper to find anything incriminating.
