George of the Jungle

Critics Consensus

George of the Jungle is faithful to its source material -- which, unfortunately, makes it a less-than-compelling feature film.

    George Of The Jungle had so much potential of delivering good laughs, but it pretty much fell flat. It was not terrible, but not great either, it's just a mediocre Disney flick that provided a few good laughs on-screen. I loved it when I was a kid, but I realized, as an adult, that it wasn't one of those movies where I would love it forever, from young to old. The story was pointless, and it wasn't one of those plotlines that is meant to be taken seriously. The performance here was okay. I've never was a fan of Brendan Fraser, but he was quite decent with his character. Leslie Mann was wasted here, and she didn't deliver anything good on screen. George Of The Jungle was one of those movies where you loved it as a kid until you get older. With that said, only kids would love it, but not adults.

    Pure crap. Its not funny, interesting, or good, its just stupidity and them thinking its going to be a straight A comedy, and its one of the worst Disney films I have ever seen.

    George of the Jungle is decent little live action comedy from Disney. The film is definitely silly, but it manages to bring on good laughs. Brendan Fraser gives a decent performance here, nothing that great. The film is perfect to watch as a family, and it's is a film that will appeal to all ages. George of the Jungle is simply put a fun comedy that though is uneven, manages to bring a few laughs. Unfortunately, the film too goofy at times, and that's why the film suffers a bit. The film is decent, but it never really that good to begin with. If you keep your expectation average, then you won't be disappointed. As far as a comedy is concerned, George of the Jungle does work, but at times it's clear that the film struggles to be something better, and doesn't quite get there. The cast do a decent job, and the film fun, but it's one of those films that aren't really memorable. Sure there are some good times to be watching this film, but it never does do anything interesting. The films biggest problem is that it lacks substance to the overall story. There's really nothing that good about the plot and it doesn't do anything really fun. The film is amusing, but you can see that the plot at times doesn't really work. But for what it is, George of the Jungle is a decent time waster; just don't expect anything truly great from this one.
