Curious George Review

Curious George Review

From paper to pixels, mischievous monkey Curious George makes his way to the silver screen in a children’s full-length animated feature film. To preserve the retro spirit of the book series created by Margret and H.A. Rey in 1941, George’s world is rendered with 2-D animation. 

Celebrities lend their voice talents to Curious GeorgeWill Ferrell plays Ted, The Man With the Yellow Hat, Drew Barrymore plays a school teacher and Ted’s love interest and Dick Van Dyke plays a museum curator.  In a banana-split-second, the plot revolves around Ted and George attempting to save the financially struggling museum that Ted works at.

Curious George is a fun little flick that stays true to the classic books and will be a treat for the tots.  After the jump is the music video for Jack Johnson‘s single "Upside Down" featured in Curious George, which combines live action shots of Jack within the animated world of the mischievous monkey. Catch Curious George in theaters today!

    Curious George was my favorite when I was little and now he is my sons favorite. I still have my original Knickerbocker stuffed animal Curious George, he has a couple of small holes and is missing a nostril but I can’t bring myself to throw him out.

  • Andrea

    My kids loved this movie! We have seen it twice this week!

  • cheryl

    I took my 2 year old grandaughter to see the movie this past Saturday. Before the movie we went to Toys R US and purchased a Gerorge Doll that you can tickle and he laughs. She sat and watched the entire movie on my lap with George. She is too little to sit in the movie chairs, they fold up on her ! We loved the movie and it was just like old times when I would take her mommy to see movies :)

  • pinkvixxen

  • kathotdog

    The movie is great – it is always tricky to make a beloved character "new" and the writers, director, producer and actors did a good job.

  • Julia

    I remeber hoe much I used to love Curious George when I was little even though it was before my time lol. It’s great that they can take such a spirited classic and make it popular all over again. I can’t wait to see the new movie!

  • Kim

    I took my 5 year old niece to see this last weekend and the whole theatre was full of "awww" and laughter. It was a great movie. The whole place didn’t move unless they were laughing throughout the whole movie!I grew up reading curious george’s adventures so it was very cool to watch him on screen with my niece.This is one of the best book to movie projects I have ever seen! I love curious george even more now than I did growing up and I am 20 years old! :) Anyone would enjoy this movie unless they’re old fuddy duddys!
