Who doesn't love Curious George? My son watches him every morning on PBS so I thought he would love this movie. I was right.
Will Ferrell does the voice of Tim, the man in the yellow hat, and Drew Barrymore is in it as well. George looks and sounds just like he does on the TV show but this movie tells the story of how George came to live in the city with Tim. It goes through the story of him following Tim home from Africa, Tim not wanting George at first and then eventually coming around. It tells this story at the same time as the story of Tim trying to save the museum from bankruptcy. My son watches this movie a lot and he always enjoys it.
The bonus features are great for preschool aged children. It has a games section where you can play "where's George?" and find where he is hiding. You can count bananas hidden in pictures or color pictures. The bonus features alone entertain my son for a long time and they are somewheat educational.
We give this movie ***** (5 stars) and encourage you to check it out if you have a preschool aged child or any Curious George fan!
