Director Rob Minkoff's 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' continues the current streak of transspecies relationship films - we had Spike Jonze's 'Her', a romance between a loner and an operating system; and Jose Padilha's RoboCop only a couple of weeks back. 
At the heart of 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' is the relationship between the genius Mr. Peabody, a dog, and his adopted human son, Sherman. The movie scrupulously makes sure it doesn't leave any of the animated movie cliches unticked. The boy is bullied by his classmates for being a dog's son, and people would later accept "dog" as a respectable term and cheer for Mr. Peabody; the boy finds himself battling impossible situations, realising himself and proving to others that he's not worthless. The drama doesn't exactly engage, the movie hardly scratches the surface and yet, these half-baked aspects are kept peripheral and don't come across as actively problematic.
The proceedings are consistently fun enough. The time travel device is smartly employed to result in some very funny situations (a particularly hilarious one involving George Washington). 
Mr. Peabody may not be a great film, but it's always buoyant and cheerful enough to keep boredom away.
