Product Description

Amazon.ca

A wild collection of hip actors--from Will Ferrell to Drew Barrymore to David Cross--provide voices for Curious George, based on the classic, gentle children's books. Ted (voiced by Ferrell, Elf) works at a natural history museum that's fallen on hard times. The museum director's son (Cross, Arrested Development) wants to turn it into a parking lot, but Ted offers to bring back a mysterious idol from Africa that's guaranteed to pull in crowds. Unfortunately, the idol turns out to be three inches tall. But Ted (who, before he heads on safari, gets outfitted in head-to-toe yellow, transforming him into the beloved Man in the Yellow Hat from the books) accidentally brings back a lonely yet irrepressible monkey, soon dubbed George. In no time at all George gets into all kinds of mischief--painting an apartment, soaring aloft with a bunch of helium-filled balloons, climbing on a dinosaur skeleton, and generally getting Ted into hot water. Older fans of the books will probably wince at the formulaic save-the-museum storyline, as well as at the obligatory love interest (Barrymore, Charlie's Angels) whose role is utterly passive. Jack Johnson's songs are so bland you can't remember the melodies even as you're listening to them, and the animation (an odd but not ineffective blend of two-dimensional drawing and CGI) has grossly cutified the book's illustrations, eroding their origina charm (the contrast is made sadly clear by a montage of the original drawings over the closing credits). But the basic relationship between man and monkey remains sweet, and younger kids will delight in George's innocent troublemaking. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars terrific family entertainment Feb. 19 2008
By falcon
Format:DVD
this movie was better than i was expecting.it's lite heated,funny and
great fun for the whole family.it's also very touching.there nothing in
this movie that can't be watched by any age group.kids should lobe
it,and it's also engaging enough for adults.i think the story is
interesting enough for both kids and adults.it's n9ice to know there is
still some quality family entertainment that really is for the whole
family.i also thought the voice actors fit the characters perfectly.if
you're a parent,you can set your r child down by themselves ,knowing
they are watching something which is perfectly kid friendly,and you
might like it as well.for me Curious George is a 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars First impressions weren't great but then... June 2 2013

On a first watch my 3 year old didn't care for this, didn't get anywhere close to the end but gradually it's come to be one of his favourites, in this case, knowing the end was more than helpful.
