Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Nothing can save the fact that this movie's full of groan-worthy lines, bad acting, and absurd jokes, and the occasional badly animated parrot, elephant, or kangaroo. There's almost nothing to recommend here in terms of behavior you'd want emulated, and what is good about it ("real love matters") is almost entirely suffocated by the stench of bad gas. That said, for kids of a certain age, it's likely to be riotously silly good fun, or at least enough talking animals and explosive fart jokes to keep them amused for most of the 87 minutes.

GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE 2 picks up where George of the Jungle left off, only without the main actor who lifted the movie high on Naked Gun antics into acceptable society. So what's left is all of the poop jokes with a quarter of the charm. The film does its best to carry the torch without Fraser, and employs plenty of distractions to that effect: It's got apes, the jungle, Vegas, poker games, a magic show, and a whole lot of winking innuendo and messages about shallowness versus "real love."
