Product description

Product Description

When a baby boy is left in the African jungle, he grows up in the company of animals to become George (Brendan Fraser), a handsome but clumsy vine-swinger. When George meets beautiful career woman Ursula, he is so smitten with her that he ends up leaving his jungle home and travelling to San Francisco with her, where the adventures really begin.

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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

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.

Any 90's kid will remember George, George, George of the Jungle, he's Strong as he can be! Lol

It wasn't an oscar contender, heck I'm pretty sure it won no awards- but reviewers need to remember this was a kids movie made in the 90's FOR KIDS!! It's lame at times, a little ham handed but it's enjoyable, funloving and as a 9yr old seeing it at the cinema- it was pretty awesome!! Brendan Fraser delivers in this role and the DVDs quality good!

I may be totally 90's child bias but I watch now with the eyes of a kid, because that's the way it should be- it's a family movie that kids today should see! It helps to complete my 90's kids collection (Home Alone, Hocus Pocus, Flipper, Free Willy, Hook, 3 Ninjas...tv.) it sits proudly with them so when my own kids come along they can enjoy the magic of movies that were made FOR kids in what can be described as "A golden Age" (disneys golden age was all 90's, cole of late 80's movies too) 😋

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!
