Movies are designed to entertain. They are created to transport us to a different world and away from our problems--at least for a little while. Some movies educate us. Others make us think deeply about the world around us.
Often, the moral or lesson will come as a surprise to the viewer. We will be watching and all of a sudden, something profound is said or something monumental happens that changes our outlook on life. Unexpectedly, this happens in the new family film, Mr. Peabody and Sherman
This is a classic smart dog with human storyline. The movie is based off an old cartoon with the same name, but the characters have been updated to fit modern times--geared towards the 21st century, all the while keeping the idea and general plot in mind. 
But, what is so profound? The film seems to be a metaphor for love and what it means to love. On a deeper level, the movie delves into homosexual couples adopting. A blogger admits the discussion is subtle, so don't fret if you didn't notice. 
The movie, which seems to be considered as average, is an adventure story with a father/son component. However, the father is a dog and the kid is not. Odd but true in this universe. The reason for adopting was "Mr. Peabody simply adopted Sherman because he wanted to be a dad." Then, through the whole film, the dog has to prove he is a good father. 
If true, it's an interesting concept! At any rate, this seems to be a good movie about tolerance and acceptance. That is something we all need.
