From Amazon.co.uk

Disney scored an unexpected hit with this goofy live-action remake of Jay Ward's Saturday-morning cartoon, a zippy Tarzan parody with topical references and absurd gags. Disney's big-screen version, George of the Jungle starring Brendan Fraser as the sweet, hopelessly inept jungle hero, puts the emphasis on slapstick and silly fun. The klutzy hero, still swinging into trees and stray boulders, saves a lost Los Angeles socialite (Leslie Mann) on safari and, completely smitten, leaves behind his tree-house home and simian best friend (an Oxford-accented ape voiced by John Cleese) to accompany the socialite back to the concrete jungle of LA, much to the frustration of her conniving fiancé (Thomas Haden Church). Fraser's enthusiastic performance enriches our hunky hero with endearing innocence and energetic pluck. The humour is spotty and consistently more juvenile than the original cartoon, but the unending parade of visual gags (including George's pet elephant Shep, transformed into an overexcited six-tonne puppy by inventive digital effects) keeps the tone light, frothy and winningly fun. --Sean Axmaker

Do not think that disney equals a kids film, because george of the jungle proves that simply untrue. Brendan Fraser could quite possibly be the king of slapstick comedy, playing the sweet but clumsy George, while Leslie Mann is stunning as the typical Disney heroine. It's predictable yes, but the jokes keep on rolling and even if you can't bear the thought of another Tarzan remake, ladies it's worth checking this out if only to see Fraser's toned bod!

George of the Jungle has got to be one of the funniest and most carefree films (the narrator tells you whether to panic or not). Brendan Fraser simply puts so much energy and charm into his character you can't help thinking all Tarzan films should have been this way. His future love, Ursula, is so sweet,not at all annoying , perfectly suited to George in her innocence. The bad guy is someone you really love to hate, you're so happy when things go wrong for him. I'm happy I bought the film, the sheer corniness makes you laugh out loud.

Fun for all the family. The kids love the action and the adults love the jokes. Especially the ones by the porters! I'll never be able to look at a UPS van again without thinking of George.

having heard a couple of reverential references to this film on the Mark Kermode/Simon Mayo show, i took the plunge.
they were spot on; this is a live action classic, works on both adult & kid levels, up there with 'Toy Story'.
yes, it's that good.
i've never heard our 4-year old son laugh so much at a film. tears of laughter all round. he even suggested we show this film for his impending 5th birthday party!
no higher recommendation.

By Mr. R. Johnson on 10 Jan 2009

There have been stories that have fascinated me as a child and as a man; Tarzan of the Apes is one of them. Didn't we all grow up on Jonny Weismuller and the TV version?

I even read the book after seeing the Greystoke movie and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I was, I believe, ready for a bit of parody on the subject. And I was not wrong.

My son introduced me to this when he was younger. George of the Jungle: a story of the young baby left orphaned and left to live with the apes, a typical Tarzan story, but not with a talking ape or an elephant that thinks it is a dog? Surely not?

But yes, in this film, anything goes. Buy it and enjoy it. I have and I do.

Watch out for that treeeee! Ouch!!

Granddaughter loves the dvd, quick delivery which was helpful as little granddaughter was waiting for its arrival when she came to my home and it was waiting for her when she arrived, which is always good for the little ones.
