George of the Jungle
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
George of the Jungle Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:On DVD Saw at/with: Kendra at/ home
Rating: NR Year: 1997 Category: Comedy
Director: Sam Weisman Time: 92 min. Writer: Jay Ward & Dana Olsen

Mine: This whole movie could have been a huge flop, but Brendan Fraser saves it! His totally strait performance of a totally out there character is a lot of fun to watch. Very little subtelty, but still a lot of fun.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Live-action Disney comedy feature based on Jay Ward's 1960s cartoon show about a clumsy king of the jungle. Aimed at kids, who should enjoy it thoroughly; for adults its one-note silliness wears thin, with a preponderance of story climaxes, but Fraser and Mann are immensely likable. Why couldn't they come up with at least a few funny lines for the Ape named Ape?

Brendan makes the movie. i cant think of many actors nowadays who could of made this movie work. (unfortunately he wasn't given as good a script for 'Dudley DoRight', too many sight gags.) . A joy to watch, MANY funny moments. Not just for kids.
