    Slow Box-Office Finds ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ In First Place; ‘Need For Speed’ Stalls In 3rd

    Well, this was unexpected (that is if you’re not attentively looking at Friday and Saturday numbers with a sniper’s eyes). You might think, considering the success of “The Fast & Furious” series, that something similarly adrenaline-focused like the vroom-fast “Need For Speed” film would be critic-pr...

    REVIEW: "Mr. Peabody and Sherman"

    Bringing Jay Ward's Mr. Peabody - a TV cartoon classic - to the big screen had to have been daunting.

    Interview: Peter Key - Son of Ted Key, Creator of "Mr. Peabody and Sherman"

    If all Ted Key had done in his career were to create the characters and format that became Mr. Peabody and Sherman, it would be impressive enough. But the cartoonist/writer/art director was also creator of the long-running cartoon/TV sitcom Hazel, and three hit Disney comedy/fantasies. I spoke to s...
