    Alright, good news. :)

    Wonder why this is. Did it get a good word of mouth? So far the main positive comments I’ve heard about it is that “It’s a lot closer to the original source, so that’s nice.” and it’s “Surprisingly good.”

    Not like Dragon where it was more “BEST FILM OF THE YEAR!” word of mouth.

      “Surprisingly good” is definitely how’d I characterize it. Cool idea and nice execution. I’ve been recommending it quite a bit… so maybe word of mouth is working in its favor.

    I really enjoyed this movie and I will be seeing it again next week!

    “The film will end up being one of DreamWorks’ lowest-grossing CG features to date” Shocker. Dreamworks needs a “creative housecleaning”… or rather, the executives that are greenlighting such awful ideas like Sherman/Peabody, Trolls etc.

    It’s just unfortunate that we didn’t get the Rocky and Bullwinkle short along with the film. Now I’ll wind up watching some dragon/panda/penguin thing for it.

      It’s more likely that it’ll wind up on the DVD release.

    Saw a prerelease screening, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Last week, we had a character TD as a guest speaker on campus. She showed a trailer for P&S, and I thought “I’d like to see that again.” Hopefully word of mouth will give it legs.

    Alright! I loved this movie! I’m sure I’ll see it again sometime soon. I hope it continues to do well! (*^~^*)

      As of this writing, it’s hanging on pretty well! The movie’s well past the $200 million mark worldwide, and should pass the $100 million mark domestically this weekend. On the foreign side, among the remaining markets forthcoming, the movie will be released in Japan in November. (Yeah, I know, a fairly long wait…)

      Needless to say, as a Mr. Peabody fan, I absolutely loved this movie. :)
