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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Family entertainment about a monkey kids can relate to Feb. 10 2006
By K. Corn - Published on Amazon.com
As a child, what I loved best about Curious George was his absolute inability to resist temptation, especially if fun was involved. His curiousity got him into all sorts of trouble and I got a vicarious thrill out of watching him get out of trouble and have everything turn out all right, but not without a lot of action and suspense and humor first.

What kid can't relate to the constant struggle between following the rules and testing the boundaries.?

Luckily, this movie stays true to the spirit of the classic books and it features a stellar cast, including Drew Barrymare and Will Ferrell. They do fine in their roles.

DO keep in mind that this movie is NOT designed to entertain adults (as Shrek did) There aren't the clever "in" jokes and the animation is a bit strange at times. Also, there are updates such as cell phones (not around when Curious George was created).

But the spirit of the series remains intact. At the theatre where I saw the film, the younger members of the audience were laughing wildly. The older ones weren't nearly as thrilled. It really is aimed at a younger age group.

With those aspects in mind, it'd be the perfect family film for those with young children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Splendid Feb. 12 2006
By A. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Curious George is a delightful book and a delightful movie. That the two don't match up very well is a testament to changing times I think, and not because the creators of the movie didn't care about preserving the original. But before I get into that I will review the movie as it stands on its own.

The "man with the yellow hat" (nicely voiced by Will Farrel) is a museum docent who cares passionately about his work and wants to communicate his love of history and the natural world to a disinterested city. It seems that the museum is failing financially, and destined to soon become a parking lot unless he and the owner can come up with a grand new attraction to bring in the money. So the man with the yellow hat buys the latest in adventure clothing and sets out to Africa on a mission to find a gigantic idol for their exhibit. He finds George instead (a very good little monkey, but extremely curious). George stows away on the ship headed back to America, and there he creates a lot of mischief and fun. The man with the yellow hat is at a loss about what to do with his new little friend, but soon learns to appreciate the little monkey and learns from his insatiable curiosity to stop worrying and enjoying life more.

We are Curious George fans (my household includes a 4 and 7-year old to whom I have read these books many times before bed). I thought the movie was sweet and innocent, done in a simpler animation style with soft washes of bright color that stayed fairly true to the feeling of the illustrations from the books. This entranced my four year old: the seven year old was bored, as I might have expected. After all, the books were meant more for the pre-K ages.

Speaking of innocence, you might have guessed from my summary that the movie took HUGE liberties with the plot. In its defense, imagine movie audiences of today reacting to some guy showing up in Africa, dropping a monkey into a sack and hauling him off to America to live in his house largely unsupervised. Then imagine that the monkey accidentally dials the Fire Department, which shows up and arrests him for false alarm, taking him to a prison infested with rats. When the books were written what, 50 years ago? this may have seemed more plausible. Not today, by a long shot! So you see how there had to be a major rewrite for this to work as a movie in 2006.

I thought this was a fun film to see with your 2-5 year old child, but perhaps too simple for older kids unless they are rabid Curious George fans to begin with. We will probably rent or buy the DVD when it becomes available later this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars NIce, sweet, appropriate for younger kids Aug. 23 2006
By L. Fullerton-Shepherd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I thought the movie was a breath of fresh air in an era of overhyped computer-animated "cartoons" full of in-jokes and sarcasm. This was a real cartoon- gently animated, slowly paced, and written for kids. No snarky sarcasm, no annoying talking animals, no ridiculous violence, just a sweet tale told so that it could be enjoyed by all ages. There is nothing to scare a very young child, and children will not come away with rude comments that they learned from it. It is what movies for kids should have always been.

The plot is slightly pointless, but the plot really isn't the point anyway. The real point is how cute George is, and how nice it is to watch him being curious. The songs are sweet and not too loud or jarring. All of mine, from ages 2 up to 7, liked the movie, and it kept their attention without making them anxious. I wish I could give it six stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for monkeys Aug. 12 2006
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great movie for the whole family. Simple clean animation and CGI translate the classic story book (taking some liberties) to a format to suit a new generation, with a fantastic soundtrack by Jack Johnson and two popular stars in Will Ferrell and Drew Barrymore. One would have thought that Ferrell would have been better off as the monkey, but instead he gets to play the second banana as Ted, the Man in the Yellow Hat. Barrymore plays his love interest, but there ain't much to see in that department.

Ted works at a museum which is about to close its doors due to lack of public interest. The owner's son is all for selling it to build a parking garage, but Ted persuades Mr. Bloomsberry (Dick Van Dyke) to make a last effort by retrieving a huge idol from the Lost Shrine of Zagawa and displaying it at the museum.

Before he knows it, Ted is outfitted in a yellow suit and is off playing Indiana Jones with a compromised map. There he meets the adorable monkey of the tile, who falls in love with Ted's yellow hat and the game of peek-a-boo. Unfortunately the idol he recovers is slightly smaller than advertised, and he goes home to face the music.

Unfortunately, Mr. Bloomsberry has started the advertising campaign for the giant idol, and Ted finds himself at a loss for words and of course an idol. To compound matters, George has managed to track him across the ocean, and a swinging time follows, as the little monkey can't help but get into trouble.

Lots of laughs and of course a happy ending is a given, but it's a fun ride all the same. A cute and cuddly movie for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Joy Feb. 11 2006
By Wendy Grown - Published on Amazon.com
Our almost-four-year-old requested that we allow him to see this movie a while ago. Last night was the big event. It was perfectly wonderful -- I can't imagine how the film could be improved. I missed a few moments because I spent some time watching our little boy giggle and smile throughout the movie. George is darling -- and if you've ever parented an especially busy "curious" toddler, this movie will pull at your heartstrings and remind you of the divine beauty in children. I especially enjoyed the use of "lighting effects" in the animation design -- they were appropriate and beautiful. The music was wonderful. Will Farrel was really good as the voice of the Man in the Yellow Hat. For me, Dick Van Dyke's warm, rich voice conjures childhoods past (with Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang). George was so adorable! We came home from the movie full of happiness, and also full of plans to appreciate and love our children more. Bravo!
