Critic Reviews for Curious George

All Critics (105) | Top Critics (34)

Director Matthew O'Callaghan and screenwriter Ken Kaufman haven't tried to create a film that's hip, just one that's funny and sweet, and in that sense they've succeeded.

Gentle enough to satisfy the wee ones but has little to offer their adult companions...

The welcome absence of strained cleverness qualifies as one of its biggest virtues.

George is just so darn cute with his big eyes and bright smile and perpetually sunny disposition, he's pretty much impossible to resist.

Better than I would've thought, even though I always liked reading the Curious George books growing up.

Jeepers. Flixster rates this as 3 1/2 stars. I found it a horribly childish waste of 90 minutes. Nowhere near the quality of other animated flicks I have seen like Ice Age or Shrek, etc.
