Well, if you ask me - This atrociously bad, $55 million, live-action cartoon tried way-way too hard to be funny, but regardless of all of its zany, slapstick comedy, it only succeeded in falling flat on its face for the most part.

Based on the characters from a very mediocre TV cartoon series from 1967, George Of The Jungle was strictly geared for an audience that has very low expectations about what encourages them to laugh.

Well, for starters - When it came to that whole business of George repeatedly crashing into trees while swinging from a vine (which was supposed to be one of this picture's comical high points) - Believe me, it all became really tiresome and totally stale, real fast. It sure did.

Instead of this stunt producing big laughs, it only succeeded in making me cringe and roll my eyes to the ceiling out of bored exasperation. It actually got to the point where I found myself hoping that George would, indeed, seriously injure himself the next time he came face-to-face with another tree trunk. But, my wish was never granted.

Not only that, but, I found that the annoying and unfunny voice-over narration that cropped-up throughout the story didn't help matters much, either. And as far as the George character went, I thought that Brendan Fraser was clearly miscast for his part and his performance unbelievably irritating, to boot.

When George arrived in the "civilized" world, that certainly made his character look even more stupid than ever.

A childhood memory. Fun comedy for kids.

George of the Jungle is a great movie! The humour might be a bit obvious, but the characters are hilarious.
