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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cute but never cloying, uncomplicated but not simple-minded, 'Curious George' is as light, energetic and satisfying as a flip through one of the storybooks that bear his name.
