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

What sets the film apart is a script that has the good sense to laugh at itself.
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.
George George, George of the Jungle. Boom boom BOOM BOOM . . . Oh, please shut up.
Live-action take on popular tale is family fun.
An uninspired, if mildly likeable, spin on the Tarzan legend from Disney.
Amiable but toothless...
This is off-beat, goofy, entertaining summer fun.
Silly fun, true to the spirit of the cartoon.
Better than it deserved to be.
It may be a dumb concept, but as it pokes fu at itself, making reference to comedy cliches, "George of the Jungle" ends up a great film to watch. Brendan Fraser's wacky character is portrayed perfectly and the story is a very fun ride to take. Travelling through the world, acting like an ape how he grew up is a fun element to play with and when he makes it into the city is hysterical. The camerawork is simple, the characters are complex enough, and the villains are acceptable, but the gags are genius. I love watching this film for what it is, and in my opinion, there is really not much to complain about here! A great film for the entire family!
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.
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.
A childhood favourite and a classic!
