Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Last Wednesday, my sweetie took me to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman. I wasn't expecting much, because I'd heard some people say that it wasn't an effort worthy of the source material.

Whoever said that could not have been more wrong!

Mr. Peabody and Sherman is completely delightful, managing to be extremely faithful to the source material while updating it for a modern audience at the same time. It's a wonderful, family-friendly romp that is also intelligent enough to please . . . well, even me. I left the theater with a big grin on my face which didn't fade for the rest of the evening. I give it a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Movie critics
What I like to find is either a critic whose tastes match mine exactly (I've yet to find one) or one whose tastes are a complete mismatch with mine (someone who hates what I like, and likes what I hate). I've found several of the latter kind over the years. But I have to keep finding new ones, because they keep dropping off the radar (perhaps their tastes are a complete mismatch with nearly everyone...:-)).

Heh. Yeah, we had a guy here in SD named Duncan Sheppard who was famous for hating EVERYTHING! It was so much fun reading his reviews, because he was such a curmudgeon.

I too feel the same way about the Movie I will be purchasing it so I can better hear all the one liners in the crowd scene at the end I was giggling and laughing enough that I missed some I wish I had heard. I took to of my clients and they both loved it.
