What sets the film apart is a script that has the good sense to laugh at itself.

Surprisingly pleasant.

Not quite inspired lunacy, the film has a game, likable quality and strong sequel potential.

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.

A pleasant surprise, one of the most witty, entertaining family films to come out in some time.

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

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

George of the Jungle may be unsophisticated, but it is enjoyable.
