It's nice to have something this sincere and comforting out in the world.

Sure, it's a film for the toddlers, but that doesn't mean the adults can't find something good from it.

Director Matthew O'Callaghan and screenwriter Ken Kaufman haven't tried to create a film that's hip, just one that's funny and sweet, and in that sense they've succeeded.

Gentle enough to satisfy the wee ones but has little to offer their adult companions...

George's character has been intensely cutesified here, with little of the subversive edge which remains the secret of his lasting appeal.

The welcome absence of strained cleverness qualifies as one of its biggest virtues.

It's a gentle, unhurried, largely hand-drawn children's cartoon with a nice simple storyline and no nods and winks to the grown-ups.

George is just so darn cute with his big eyes and bright smile and perpetually sunny disposition, he's pretty much impossible to resist.

A decent distraction for the young ones, it also seems content to be merely that.

A great kids' film, and a vehicle for a beloved character that will hopefully send parents scurrying to the bookstore for the genuine article.

It's harmless, colourful fun, but even the very young are used to better.

Inocente como seu público-alvo (as crianças menores), é um filme cuja base reside no carinho entre seus dois personagens principais. E, embora isto não gere uma narrativa exatamente intensa, conquista pelo calor de seus sentimentos.

It's good old-fashioned family entertainment.

The whole thing might be a bit more bearable were it not for the tooth-rotting sweetness of Jack Johnson's songs, which are all about learning by doing, and how important it is to have friends, and other such guff.

Based on the classic series of children's books by Margret and HA Rey, this gently comical animated movie perfectly catches the tone of the adventure tales. It's a charming little film that shouldn't be left to children.

A shock for those expecting grown-up laughs, Curious George is that rarest of breeds: a kids' film through and through.

Enjoyable, brightly coloured and sharply written animation that will delight its target audience while leaving accompanying adults pleasantly surprised.

Director Matthew O'Callaghan supplies a bright, cheerful look that will please small kids, but parents hardly need rush them to the theater; the video will do just as well.

It is a sweet, simple movie with a sweet, simple message: that children see the world differently and have much to teach the people who love them.
