Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Stars ìììì

Curious George—
lovable, with superb traditional animation—gently reminds us that circuitous paths can often lead to happy endings.

Ted, the man with the yellow hat (voice of Will Ferrell), loses his post at the Bloomsberry Museum because there are not enough interesting exhibits to create floor traffic. The junior Bloomsberry (voice of David Cross) wants to replace the museum with a parking lot, but the elder Bloomsbury (voice of Dick Van Dyke) wants to preserve it. Ted finds a picture of a stone monkey that has never been found and encourages the elder Bloomsbury to find the African artifact and rejuvenate interest in the museum. The elder Bloomsbury grabs at the idea and enthusiastically propels a reluctant Ted to take the trip to Africa.
