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}

Goofs

It is often claimed that George is an ape, not a monkey, because he has no tail. However, there are a few tail-less monkey species such as the Barbary macaque. It is conceivable that George is such a species, probably a fictitious one. See more »

Very charming, not a sour note in the entire film!!
6 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I took our 9-year-old to see a sneak preview of "CG" over the weekend. Going into it, I had reservations--I loved the books and illustrations when I was younger, but I thought my son wouldn't like it & that I would just zone out for 90 minutes. I WAS WRONG! The animation is very well done, probably more computerized than hand-drawn, George thankfully does NOT talk, and the characters are given enough depth & background to sustain a plot for a children's film. The film takes some of the most memorable scenes from the original books & melds them in with the story about a search for a lost idol. The film's humor is aimed squarely at kids & kids at heart. Unlike "Shrek," there are no jokes that pass over kid's heads to make the adults laugh--kids & adults alike were howling with laughter at the screening we saw, & my wife even teared up a little at one emotional point. The film has a bouncy background soundtrack made up of songs that sound like something Paul Simon would write. Thoroughly enjoyable, worth seeing, & nothing in it to offend anyone of any age.
