Curious George...two thumbs up!!
If your looking for a great, lovable movie to take your children to I highly recommend Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment's Curious George. What a wonderful fun-filled adventure of a monkey a man and their friendship.

Now, I must tell you a little history about my daughter Victoria. She is a VERY sensitive girl. She is the most compassionate three year old I ever met and she gets frightened very easily. For example, she knew and could say "fast-forward" by age 2 from passing up scenes that frightened her in movies, i.e. the lion fight in Lion King, the capture scene of Nemo in Finding Nemo, etc.

This past summer I made the big mistake by taking her to see her very first movie Chicken Little. I do not recommend this movie for any young children. It started off with a cute baseball game then moved to a horrifying alien invasion, with terrible lessons for any child to see or hear. Unfortunately, the movie ended with Victoria in my lap hiding her face saying, "I don't like that scary monster!" In hindsight, if I thought a movie about a cute little chicken was going to be scary - I would have never taken her to see it!

On a brighter note, Curious George starts off with an exciting trip to Africa (where George is discovered) then on to a wild adventure in the big city. The mischievious monkey does everything a child can relate to. Victoria was laughing the whole time! There were no scary aliens or evil ones, just lots of great family entertainment with wonderful lessons for any child to learn.

Sorry Disney...but your idea of having the main character's parent die/non-exist and generating an evil, scary character to spice up the plot is not my idea of entertainment for children.

So everyone go see Curious George - it's fantastic!
