Not as good as the first, but a nice movie all the same
The books are great, the series is just as good and the first Curious George was a big surprise and in a good way. This sequel is perhaps a little lacking but that doesn't make it a bad movie, in fact while the film isn't amazing and it doesn't try to be it is quite nice. The animation like the first is nice and colourful, and thankfully doesn't go into shoddy Saturday-morning-standard territory, while the soundtrack is sweet and bright. The film also goes along at a good pace and helped by the cute characters especially George(as adorable as ever) and Kayla the baby elephant and Norton Virgien's direction. Plus the voice acting is solid, hearing Tim Curry's voice again always gets another tick in my book. However, the film is too short and could have done with more scenes. Also while the story is charming and George's antics will delight anybody, it can be a little predictable and bland too, while the dialogue occasionally falls a little flat despite some admittedly amusing and touching moments. That said though, overall, it is a nice, charming movie. 7/10 Bethany Cox
