Drew Barrymore and David Cross also provide voices.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great film for the little 'uns......... 21 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
We took our 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter to see this film at the cinema when it was out earlier this year. Since then, I've lost count of how many times I've been asked when this film is coming out on DVD, and now at last I can tell them. They were both captivated by this film.

This is a film aimed squarely at the younger children - if you're an adult, take your brain out whilst watching - its not even like Pixar movies where at least there's some humour aimed at the adults. Instead, enjoy good old fashioned 2D-style cartoon filmaking at its most colourful.

Great soundtrack as well - you will find yourself humming Jack Johnson's 'Upside Down' for days afterwards! One of those innocent films that make you think that for at least a little while that everything is warm and fuzzy again, just like when you was a kid and it was sunny every day!

If I was 4 years old I would give this 5 stars - I've given it 4 stars as there is one bit in it that doesnt give the right message (coffee gets poured into a projector - not very clever!) but apart from my 'responsible adult' bit, this is a lovely little film that your 4 and unders will enjoy (older than that...mmm... may want to watch Bratz and Doctor Who!)

5.0 out of 5 stars great dvd 25 May 2007
By F. Oconnor VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
my 2yr old daughter loved watching curious george on citv

so i purchased this dvd,knowing it was a film version,but turned out to be

different from the series,different music and with no voice over

its abit too long for her to maintain interest

so when they released the tv series dvd,i purchased that one

with 8 episodes all about animals,this keeps her entertained and she happily

watches it until the end

having said that,the movie is great and the music/song is fab

and i'm sure she will watch it when shes abit older

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not enough monkey for me 3 July 2009
Format:DVD
My toddler loves Curious George and I loved Curious George as a child. I picked up this DVD very cheap from a supermarket before my little boy was old enough to watch it. When he became interested in monkeys, I dragged out the DVD and he loved it.

For me though, there was too much adult story line (which is not actually appealing enough for an adult) and not enough monkey. The animation is very nicely done, though.

It did keep my two year old rapt for the whole film, though. And that's got to be worth the price of the film!

We've since bought the Curious George television series on DVD from Amazon. And I've got to say those have absolutely met and exceeded my expectations and are more educational - with a real emphasis on how things work and a lot more more monkey screen time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful movie for the child in all of us 25 Jan 2007
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
You only grow old when you lose the capacity for childlike wonder. That is the message I take away from Curious George, this old friend I hadn't thought about in years. All children know and love Curious George - hospitals really ought to send a Curious George book home with all newborn babies because you can't possibly be a kid without one. Any child will love this movie because it's funny and they can identify with the cute little guy at the center of it. That is why I am going to take a different tack and attempt to review this movie as an adult.

We live in a jaded, dangerous, increasingly evil world that breeds hatred and cynicism. A few dreamers manage to succeed and inspire others, but most are laughed at and derided. Society tells you to conform to expectations and, whatever you do, don't rock the boat. Things are the way they are, so just accept it and don't ask questions. Blech! There's no wonder so many people are living empty, miserable lives. Curious George knows better; he knows how even the simplest things around us are sources of infinite wonder and fun. Sure, he gets into trouble sometimes, but he really lives - and he spreads his wonderful spirit with everyone he comes in contact with. Do you remember how much fun you had as a kid? Back then, even a dandelion was an incredible source of wonder and fun. Now, it's just a weed we curse for spreading its nefarious seeds all over our yards. This movie takes us back to those halcyon days of innocent youth, and that's more than worth the price of admission.

Obviously, this film differs from the classic Curious George books, but it truly does capture the spirit that inspired them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful children's film 21 July 2008
By Tom Douglas TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I took my 3-year old to see this at the cinema, her first ever cinema visit, and she simply loved it.

It is an old-fashioned children's movie - no grown-up humour to entertain the parents and no flashy effects - and it is thoroughly enjoyable as a result.

There is no better entertainment than the look of captivation on the face of a small child, and this film delivers it in spades.

The soundtrack, by Jack Johnson, is beautiful and is well worth a separate purchase.

An easy five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars They didn't stop laughing 14 Nov 2011
By RC
Format:DVD
Having recently watched this movie, I can honestly say it is a film you can let the little ones watch without any concerns at all. Great soundtrack, great story, no hidden adult humour, very, very funny. My 4 year old and 7 year old just laughed and laughed, in fact the 4 year old has never laughed so much. Worth buying just to watch the kids laugh out loud!

3.0 out of 5 stars The story is quite dull in spots and focuses too much on the man ...
For fans of the series, this is disappointing. The voices are different. Some characters have been replaced or don't exist at all. Read more
