Promotes Child Abuse

I grew up watching the original Peabody Cartoons on Rocky & Bullwinkle. Here it seems that they've ruined the character. The movie teaches kids to lie and to disobey their parents, and also has horrible messages about Adoption. The social worker in the film is Incredibly Abusive as well, and violently grabs Sherman in several scenes. By far the worst message this film offers is the fact you can justify things like biting people if you stand up for yourself, which is just terrible. You'd be better off with Lilo & Stitch, as it portrays Orphaned Life and Social Workers in a much more positive light.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
