Trivia

When Ursula "very quickly" tells her parents of her jungle exploits, she is actually saying "So anyway I went to the jungle, and I wanted to get away before I got married, and Lyle showed up and nobody got along with Lyle, he was a big pain in the ass, and anyway, so he, he went off into the jungle by himself, and I, you know, I had to follow him. And a jungle man comes swinging through on a vine, just swinging through, and, and he, and then we, hit something, and I don't know what happened. The next thing I know I wake up [inaudible] And then Lyle shot him!" See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Deep in the heart of Africa is a place no man has ever entered. The place that belongs to the lion, the elephant and the ape. A place known as the Bukuvu. Travellers flying overhead can only glimpse at its many marvels, its sparkling rivers, its lush veldts, its billowy cloud formations and its hidden mountains. Never fear, my friends. All was not lost. Scraped and boo-booed, they searched high and low, but they never recovered their most precious cargo.

This Movie Swings!
6 December 2000 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

A lot of movies have been fashioned after cartoons, but not all of them are successful. "George of the Jungle" is one of the few that score a hit in that department. The movie captures the slapstick feel of the original cartoon. Brendan Fraser plays his part well, as the dimwitted but lucky George. And I can't really imagine a different voice for the ape named Ape than that of John Cleese!
