Overview

The naughty little monkey from Margret Rey and H.A. Rey's beloved children's stories makes the leap to the big screen in this animated adaptation. Ted voice of Will Ferrell is an explorer with a large yellow hat who is good friends with Bloomsberry voice of Dick Van Dyke, who runs a natural history museum. Bloomsberry's greedy son, Bloomsberry Junior voice of David Cross, wants to tear down his dad's museum and put a parking ramp in its place, but the elder Bloomsberry is convinced that a spectacular new exhibit could save the museum from the wrecking ball. Ted heads to Africa on an expedition to find some special artifacts that will keep his friend in business, but while he's there he befriends a playful monkey he calls George voice of Frank Welker. While George is friendly, he has a taste for mischief and seems to always get Ted in hot water; Ted thinks he's seen the last of his simian friend when his ship heads back to America, until he discovers that George managed to hide aboard the boat before it set sail. Ted's search for a eye-catching exhibit proved to be a failure, and Ted and his good friend Maggie voice of Drew Barrymore, a schoolteacher who's sweet on him, struggle to find of a way to save Bloomsberry's museum. But time becomes precious for Ted when George has an entire new city to explore. Curious George features a handful of original songs composed for the film by surfer-turned-singer/songwriter Jack Johnson.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Those who've grown up reading Margret and H. A. Rey's enduring books will be more delighted than disappointed in the feature film debut of the good little monkey who is always curious. The playful George voiced by Frank "Fred" Welker of Scooby-Doo fame befriends Ted, an enthusiastic museum guide who has come to Africa in search of an "amazing new exhibit" to save the failing Bloomsberry Museum. Too bad the mythical, long-lost idol of Zagawa for which he is searching turns out to be a paperweight-sized trinket. Ted's life is further complicated by George, who has stowed away on Ted's ship dubbed the H. A. Rey -- a nice touch. The simian in the city innocently runs riot. In two sequences drawn from the books, he and Ted are carried aloft by a bunch of balloons, and George impulsively paints an opera diva's apartment with a jungle motif. After monkeying around with The Grinch and The Cat in the Hat, the third time's the charm for producer Ron Howard in bringing to the screen a book beloved by generations of readers. The mostly hand-drawn animation is faithful in spirit to the books' illustrations the end credits replicate scenes from George's literary misadventures. The dialogue is pretty much geared to its target audience, without the self-consciously audience-broadening pop-culture references that glut most of today's animated films. The usually untamed Will Ferrell reins it in as Ted, who becomes the gaudily dressed Man in the Yellow Hat after an ill-informed shopping spree. Drew Barrymore is Wedding Singer-sweet as the elementary school teacher who likes the clueless Ted. Dick Van Dyke is the comical geezer Mr. Bloomsberry, and David Cross is hilariously nasty as his greedy son, who wants to turn the museum into a parking lot. The film avoids a pre-packaged soundtrack of ill-placed pop hits for likable original songs by Jack Johnson. Children, as ever, will go bananas for the adorable and mischievous George, whose innocent curiosity always gets him and Ted into trouble.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Bright, gentle, and full of goodwill, this adaptation of the classic Curious George children's books fulfills its contract with the audience. Little kids will enjoy the simple but attractive color scheme, George's playful personality, and the hummable melodies of Jack Johnson's numerous contributions to the soundtrack. This is one of the most thoroughly G-rated movies of its time -- there is not even a suggestion of anything edgy -- but the casting of Will Ferrell and David Cross offers just enough promise of strangeness to keep parents smiling. Thoroughly and entirely pleasant, Curious George avoids the in-your-face attitude and style of so many of its contemporaries, something that helps create a mood that allows children to be drawn into the film at their own speed. The filmmakers respect and reward the curiosity of their youngest audience members, just as they do their title character.

    This is the best family movie ever made! I bought Curious George for my 3 yo daughter and 15 mo old son. This is now our favorite! They just LOVE IT! Very funny and not just for kids, my husband and I found ourselves laughing at some jokes as well! This movie is full of exciting and hilarious adventures! Seeing the world from monkey's point of view is pure fun! You and your kids will love it!

    George is Back!

    I took my three year old to see this movie and for months after we had seen it, he would ask to go back to see it every time we drove by the theatre. I love moneys and I am absolutelly crazy about George. The movie blends together many books in a perfect plot and does not bore the adults who are there to accompany little ones. It's funny but not stupid, dreamy but not naive. We loved it! Elisa
