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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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