Review of Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey on DVD

3:54 PM


My 3 boys seem more like adorable little monkeys than children on many days. It could be because they love to jump, run, and goof off -- or it could be because my exposure to monkeys has been severely limited.

Specifically, we've been watching a lot of Curious George at our house. Whether it's the lovable TV series that airs most mornings, or the newest full-length movie Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (available in stores March 3rd), I can't get enough of how much this little monkey seems like a real child!

My kids don't get tired of the antics, either. Maybe because the man in the yellow hat sometimes loses his patience (just like Mom and Dad), or maybe because George seems to want to do the right thing -- even when he gets in the most trouble. The music is charming, the lessons realistic, and the laughter contagious. We really enjoyed this most recent installment of the George franchise!

This movie follows well-meaning George as he tries to reunite an elephant with his home -- resulting in some problems that kids can identify with. Starring the voices of Tim Curry, Matt Lauer, Jamie Kennedy, and Jerry Lewis, it's something that won't bore parents, and it's not as hyperactive as some of the kids' movies on the market. (Meaning, you can watch it before bedtime or nap and not have the kids zipping around like crazy for hours afterward.) Calming, joyful, and simple -- we loved this film. (The soundtrack is equally stunning!)

You can find this movie out now in stores you already shop (or Amazon - aff) for around $15 - 20. Or get a preview via this movie trailer!

  7. Oh my goodness, we watched the first Curious George movie with Will Farrell and Drew Barrymore. When my daughter wanted to rent it I did so reluctantly because I knew it was going to be corny. But to my surprise, it was pretty terrific. I loved the Jack Johnson music and the story line was so cute. I want to win this for my daughter so we can catch up on that curious lil' monkey.

  42. My grnadkids love Curious George. My two year old grandson will say "No, George, no!!" if he thinks george is going to do something wrong. His 6 year old sister thinks George is too young for her, but I have noticed that when they get to pick a short DVD to watch she will try to talk her brother into watching George. She also reads his books a lot.
