Brings out the curiosity in all of us

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.

Look closer: this beautiful animated movie actually shows the bonding between father and son.

After many years, I have truly witnessed something with heart and soul. This animated film will endure the tides of time and will captivate young and old with its simple message of love and innocence. I am reminded of Jesus saying,"You parents--if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? " This truly is the core of the film. A selfish man looks past the promise of personal gain to help someone that loves him for what he is. We all live in a pretentious world. We often make hard choices, sacrificing less for others and more for ourselves. The one who has a child-like at heart, who has retained strong impressions of when he was a youngster playing with his parents, has something quite wonderful to give to society. But this is rarely so in today's environment. We are told brutally to "grow up fast" by our parents and to start making something of ourselves in life and make a lot of money. This pressurization of timid youngsters into setting a big goal often destroys whatever is left of their character. They are often depressed, have an inferiority complex and worse still, think the whole world hates them. Back to the film: Curious George is the main protagonist of a series of popular children's books by the same name, written by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey. The books feature a curious brown monkey named George, who is brought from his home in Africa by "The Man with The Yellow Hat" to live with him in a big city. The introduction of the movie is a cartoon short where we are introduced to a happy, artistic, and mischievous but lonely little monkey somewhere in the jungle. Ted (Will Ferrell) is an employed guide at the Bloomsberry Museum. We are introduced to teacher Ms. Maggie Dunlop (Drew Barrymore) and her students who come to the museum often but they are the only regular visitors. Mr. Bloomsberry (Dick Van Dyke) heartbreakingly informs Ted that the museum will have to close, because it is no longer making any money. Bloomsberry's son, Junior (David Cross), wants to tear down the museum, and replace it with a parking garage. Ted is convinced to volunteer to go to Africa in place of Mr. Bloomsberry and bring back a mystical, forty-foot-tall idol known as "Lost Shrine of Zagawa" in the hopes that it will attract customers, much to Junior's envy. Ted is outfitted with a hideous yellow suit (which causes people to laugh at him), and boards a cargo ship to Africa despite his embarrassment. With the help of a tour guide and tour group, Ted finds the "Lost Shrine of Zagawa", but discovers it to be only three inches tall, much to his disappointment. Ted also encounters the little monkey on his expedition to Africa, and gives the monkey his yellow hat. The monkey, who quickly grows fond of Ted, follows him and boards the cargo ship, unknown to Ted. Verdict: the whole family can sit down and enjoy this superb animated film. I can thoroughly recommend this one for three year olds and up.

A beautiful animated flick!

Most movies have elements to make it look beautiful.. Curious George is one of those movies. The film has an understandable storyline, great voice acting done by comedic actors and a very cute George! The highlights of the film (for me) were : 1. It is masterfully shot. Like when George doing some 'parkour' on the building, the camera was shooting at impressive angles. 2. The lighting/shading was very impressive and appealing to viewers. I see this element on very few animated movies. It is a fun movie, George still has his curious elements, it was exciting and adventurous to watch and I give it a 10 out 10!
