GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

George of the Jungle
—imaginative live action comedy, a perfect child/adult watch—bases itself on the animated 1967 TV series to make a fun piece of entertainment. Its theme runs on the Tarzan-like story of a child raised by jungle apes except this ‘white ape,’ George (Brendan Fraser), is notorious for running into trees. George’s love interest played by Leslie Mann as character Ursula Stanhope is just as confused when it comes to her choice between George or former boyfriend Lyle Van de Groot (Thomas Haden Church) as a mate for life The film is well done for presentation and acting. Brendan Fraser is a good pick for George. Good concept and storyline.
