Worth a watch

No violence, foul language, or any humor meant for reading between the lines. Things I strongly look for in a movie. This isn't as good as the 2nd one but is better than the 1st. Ted for some reason feels off in this movie. You can tell he really cares for george but his reasoning for when things go wrong are never really explained to him as the character most likely would have in the show. Ted seems a lot more wimpy in this movie. All in all the messages are great and animation is just the right pace for toddlers.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (5):

This is an immensely watchable movie that delivers exactly what you're looking for in a Curious George vehicle. Curious George 3: Back to the Jungle has a fast pace, a mildly suspenseful plot, lots of silly pratfalls and goofs, and lots of warm new friendships along the way. Here, George goes outside his typical New York City stomping ground for some space travel, then to the jungle where he becomes acquainted with jungle life.

This is a no-brainer for toddlers and preschoolers, who will find this movie easy to follow and suspenseful enough to stay engaged, with resolutions that are reassuring and positive. The animation and voice work are solid, and the action is well-paced but broken up with a few musical sequences. Additionally, George must encounter new experiences and solve problems in a new way, which gives viewers a window into making new friends and trying new things in situations that might seem scary at first. There's mild suspense but nothing likely to scare sensitive kids.
