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}

Brings out the curiosity in all of us
18 February 2006 | by jtothedovezSee all my reviews

This was just such an excellent movie. I saw it twice and believe it or not, I'm 17 years old. I work at the movie theater so it's free and all and I watched it one day work. The next day (Valentine's Day) I brought my little 8-year-old sister to see it with me. She loved it. There wasn't any high-complex comedy, just simple child's play, but done so well. Will Ferrell was great as the The Man In The Yellow Hat, his voice had a very friendly feel to it. I think the true magic is the way the artists made George look. Curiosity got the best of me when I asked "How did they get him to look like the coolest monkey in the world?" Every shot he's in you just can't help but look at him and how goofy/funny/cute/touching he looks. I will admit, a few scenes had me in stomach-aching-laughter. Especially the King Kong take-off scene where George is walking through the city and when he paints the apartment. A cheerful story for every young child and any teenager or adult with an open mind. Pure family fun.
