I don't think Penny's primary function is so much a love interest as it is for the film to have a female character that the girls in the audience can identify with/relate to. If the movie were just 2 guys running around having adventures, it might affect box office sales. If she hadn't been added, there would be people complaining about the movie not having any female characters, so I can live with Penny, just so long as the shippyness isn't overdone. I do like how Penny has 2 parents and her mom is a total TMILF (Toon MILF).

film brain on thatguywithglasses.com gave it a good review and I hear penny and Sherman are just hinted at but never officially get together
so good news for anyone who was worried about that
"...and in his spare time he invented the fist bump, planking, Auto-Tune, the backside ollie, and zumba." I admit I lol'd.
My main concern is the...how to be diplomatic about this?...modernization of the humor. The 'escape from the Sphinx' gag had me facepalming.
That aside, the film does look decent. As long as it ends with Mr. Peabody firing off a cheesy pun, I'll be relatively satisfied.
I feel that a big problem with today's society is that we don't listen to our fellow man -- especially when I'm talking.

I am thinking that I am going to have to wait for the reviews on that one. The trailer that had Mr. Peabody doing zumba had me practically gagging, but the international trailer looked alright. In either case I doubt that this is going to be much better than a second run theater kind of movie for me.

Speaking of reviews, apparently Mr. Peabody & Sherman has gotten some strong praise from the European audiences. Nothing Lego Movie, but still strong.
