EPIC. But could be scary to the youngest of kids.

Curious George At The Aquarium is a cooly animated, nostalgic movie. It has a great plot with an ideal plot change and a surprised twist. It brings all your favourite game characters into the movie life, such as Shrek and Pac-Man. Even sonic! Loveable lead characters. However, one bad guy character says to a main character they should watch his friend die and be eaten by scary mutant bugs. Also, the way some characters treat the main character is not very nice, and may encourage your little ones to treat others like this. But overall, a brilliant movie and I will look forward to the sequel.

Is It Any Good?

The newer Curious George adventures are less detailed and more formulaic than the originals, but this picture book offers something extra: lots of age-appropriate information about sea creatures. Both the electronic and print versions of this book include a page of fun facts that teach kids how piranhas taste, how sea stars eat, and more.
