The comedy in George of the Jungle is not sophisticated, but it is frequently audacious and irreverent.

A few hip smarts get displayed here and there in this de facto, broadly comic Tarzan picture, which only reinforces the flailing feel that pervades a 92-minute running time.

Better than I thought it'd be. Still not very good.

As yet another nostalgic live-action treatment of an old television cartoon series, George of the Jungle didn't have much going for it.

Depending on your point of view, this film is either truly awful or so bad it is good. In either case, be warned that a little of this repetitive movie can go a long way.

All of what made the animated George such an irreverent joy is watered down by sappiness, forced acting, and, worst of all, the plot.

Despite a few bright moments, however, too much of the film is made up of the kind of flailing manic behavior that passes for slapstick these days.

There is not a banana's worth of plot in the Dana Olsen and Audrey Wells script to offer narrative nourishment.

George George, George of the Jungle. Boom boom BOOM BOOM . . . Oh, please shut up.

The only resemblances to the classic cartoon are that trees still get in George's way, Shep the elephant still thinks he is a doggie, the ape named Ape still talks, and his girlfriend's name is still Ursula.

Those who remember more may be hoping for more than this predictable kiddie matinee posing as savvy family entertainment.

At the media screening, the guy sitting behind me could be heard loudly snoring during the third act. We should all be so lucky.

As dumb as George's I.Q. is low, and as funny as Fraser's career.
