Cute and scary

My 4 year old watched it and didn't like it too much. He's a sensitive kid. He was probably scared more than the average kid by the perilous moments and the separation. Beware if you have a sensitive kid.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Beautifully produced (by Ron Howard and Brian Glazer) and lovingly played, this addition to the Curious George series will please all members of the family. Kids will love the adorable troublemaker, George. Parents will appreciate the self-deprecating humor of Ted ("I've gone from museum director to... boxcar hobo.") While there are some sad moments where abandonment and separation from family might alarm little ones, the reunion at the end of Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey! gives the impression that good things do happen to good people. Even when those people are little monkeys named George.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
