Super

ProA film for kids, wonderful colours, great story

ConsNot really one for the adults.

Curious George is a cheeky little monkey with an big grin and a knack of getting himself into trouble with the other animals because of his curiosity. They say Curiosity killed the cat, well if George isn't careful any number of animals on the jungle where he lives may just do the same to him...

ConsNothing substantial

Matthew O'Callaghan's CURIOUS GEORGE was released in 2006, an animated adventure I stumbled upon at the theatre one Bacardi-induced evening. I vaguely remembered liking it when some months later, a Gordon's-induced evening, I found myself floating up and down the aisles of my local DVD rental...

Product Information : Curious George (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Museum guide Ted (Will Ferrell, ELF) travels to Africa in an attempt to obtain a huge ancient ruin that could save his struggling museum, which the owner's son (David Cross, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) wants to turn into a more profitable parking lot. Instead, Ted brings back an adorable, mischievous, childlike monkey who inadvertently causes all kinds of trouble for him. Resisting the temptations that so many kids' movies have succumbed to, CURIOUS GEORGE stays true to the innocently playful spirit of the beloved, brilliantly simple children's books by H.A. Rey, eschewing ironic asides, gross-out comedy, and pop culture references. Barely acknowledging the parents and guardians in the audience, the filmmakers talk directly--and effectively--to their target viewers: young children. Much like the tone and story it complements, the bright and colourful animation is distinctly old-fashioned, paying tribute to the books, appealing to kids, and adding to the movie's retro charms. With the talented voice acting (which also includes Dick Van Dyke, Joan Plowright, and Drew Barrymore as Ted's sweet schoolteacher love interest), the appropriately fun and laid-back music by Jack Johnson, the irresistibly likable character of George himself, and the wisely uncluttered plot, first-time feature director Matthew O'Callaghan achieves the rare feat of successfully and respectfully adapting one of the most popular children's books of all time.
