Very Fun!

I think this is a great movie! When my sister was a toddler she loved this movie. She called her diaper a "butt flap" and would yell "George!", then run into the wall and say "Treeeeeeee!". It was pretty awesome! On a negative note, my little brother did quote the one bad word in the movie to my grandmother...

Very funny and cute, but a few swear words

I loved this movie, but disagree with CSM's saying that language is "not an issue" with this movie. One character calls another "a pain in the a**" and God's name is taken in vain 2-3 times.

Some mild swearing, God's name used inappropriately

There are much better movie choices out there. However, this is not a horrible movie and basically follows the same choices as the comic did a long time ago. There are some indirect sexual references which sailed right over my children's heads (but I should have just skipped over). Why not just rent the original George of the Jungle comic shows?

My nephew loves it

This movie is full of poop jokes, wedgies, crashing into trees, and other jokes that would make a seven year old laugh out loud, or a husband indulging his inner kid. It doesn't take itself too seriously, ever--one character points out that "bad guy falls in poop, classic element of physical comedy. Now comes the part where we throw our heads back and laugh". The kids will laugh, and it's not so kid-oriented that parents will be bored.

Fun, simple Jungle movie

I loooooved this movie as a child but was a bit disappointed re-watching it with my kids (9,7,5). It is better than just fine but not really good. Too much romance and talking for the smaller ones. There are many points about the movie the smaller ones don't really understand like the high-society issue and the role of the narrator All the farting / poo jokes are funny for the little ones and got us laughing out loud.
