When I was invited to see some clips from the movie, I admit, I was concerned I would be disappointed. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the parts of the film I saw. It was exciting and funny. I'm sure my 9 year old daughter will eat it up with a spoon.
Mr. Sherman is portrayed by Ty Burrell, of Modern Family fame, and I think we all know how adept he is at comedy. The assembled press were given some Q&A time with Ty and he told us that playing a genius was the stretch of his career. Also he spoke about the difficulty of getting his naturally low voice to sound more like Mr. Peabody. I think he was extremely successful.
The film opens March 7th and I really think this is the type of film you'll enjoy seeing with your kids. If they happen to learn a few thing about history along the way so much the better.
