Surprisingly pleasant.

Not quite inspired lunacy, the film has a game, likable quality and strong sequel potential.
February 9, 2006
The story is incidental -- the villain wants to abduct the talking ape for financial gain -- and thankfully the animatronics and computer effects aren't allowed to overwhelm the proceedings.
June 18, 2002
A pleasant surprise, one of the most witty, entertaining family films to come out in some time.

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

Part screwball romance, part special-effects adventure.

An amiable, highly ingratiating piece of lowbrow entertainment, and the audience of mainly young children and parents I saw it with on Saturday night clearly had a ball. So did I.

What really makes this work is Fraser, who plays it to the hilt.
January 1, 2000
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.

The movie would meander along, not going anywhere, and then -- pow! -- there'd be an enormous laugh. More meandering, and then pow! again.
