Storyline

The man with the yellow hat named Ted Shackleford works at a natural history museum that's fallen on hard times. The museum director's son 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 accidentally brings back a lonely yet irrepressible monkey, soon dubbed George. They set off on a non-stop action, fun-filled journey through the wonders of the big city toward the warmth of true friendship. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Soooo Cute!
10 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

First off I have to say that I am a huge Curious George fan and have been since I was a little girl. I have to admit that when I saw that they were making my beloved little monkey into a feature film, I was incredibly nervous that his legacy would be ruined. But the movie opened today and my boyfriend and I went to the first matinée at the theater and I LOVED it! I thought it was adorable and true to the style and story of the original book. I loved everything about it. The animation was great, it was nice to see something NOT computer animated for a change. Jack Johnson's music was a perfect fit and watching basically morphed me back 18 years into a 5 year old kid again. It brought me back to watching the old animated stories I watched with my little brother. I think this will be a great thing for getting kids to go and read the books as well. I was in a Borders later in the afternoon and saw two kids buying books and overheard a phone call asking about what books were carried there.

So whether you're 23 and fell in love with George as a kid or you have kids of your own, this is a must see. You'll forget your troubles for the length of the movie.
