Synopsis


Curious George
The naughty little monkey from Margret Rey and H.A. Rey's beloved children's stories makes the leap to the big screen in this animated adaptation. Ted (voice of Will Ferrell) is an explorer with a large yellow hat who is good friends with Bloomsberry (voice of Dick Van Dyke), who runs a natural history museum. Bloomsberry's greedy son, Bloomsberry Junior (voice of David Cross), wants to tear down his dad's museum and put a parking ramp in its place, but the elder Bloomsberry is convinced that a spectacular new exhibit could save the museum from the wrecking ball. Ted heads to Africa on an expedition to find some special artifacts that will keep his friend in business, but while he's there he befriends a playful monkey he calls George (voice of Frank Welker). While George is friendly, he has a taste for mischief and seems to always get Ted in hot water; Ted thinks he's seen the last of his simian friend when his ship heads back to America, until he discovers that George managed to hide aboard the boat before it set sail. Ted's search for a eye-catching exhibit proved to be a failure, and Ted and his good friend Maggie (voice of Drew Barrymore), a schoolteacher who's sweet on him, struggle to find of a way to save Bloomsberry's museum. But time becomes precious for Ted when George has an entire new city to explore. Curious George features a handful of original songs composed for the film by surfer-turned-singer/songwriter Jack Johnson. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This movie really takes me back to my childhood. Will Ferrell stars and the colors pop off the screen on Blu-ray. Fun origin type story with laughs and hijinks of a curious monkey in the big city. A good escape from your daily life and a reminder to take the time to enjoy the wonders all around us.

    The movie is good, but what really makes this movie stand out is the Jack Johnson soundtrack. There are many Curious George movies, but this is the one you want. And the kids love it too!

    It's everything I have ever dreamed of, a movie that entertains my 1 year old and let's me get some rest. Best Buy I would be lost without you and this movie. Good review huh? It's a movie and it does what I wanted it to do, play.

    I watched this for the first time and realizing half way through that Will Ferrell was the man in the yellow hat. He makes the man in the yellow hat funny but also a little too bipolar for an adult character in a kids movie.

    I picked this up because the kids love the PBS Curious George episodes. However, the movie is not as good as the tv show. It's still decent, but I would have preferred the tv shows over the movie.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I just love this movie. Curious George was always cute when I was growing up and I have been waiting for the movie for a long time. Jack Johnson is one of my favorite musicians and I was excited when I found out he did the soundtrack. Plus Will Farrell is totally awesome.
