Funny with few adult humour

One bad word. Light Sexual content. Guns. Funny movie. Crude humor. Drinking and smoking. Its not bad but a few thing in the movie didnt really need to be in there.

Rather forgetable.

I remember watching an episode of this show,but I forgot which one it was.First off,this show might scare little kids.For instance.I remember watching that one episode at my friend's house and my friend's little sister was REALLY scared.Also,this show was REALLY boring and forgetable.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (8 ):

George of the Jungle is set in a jungle whose inhabitants inexplicably include rabbits and pandas, as well as every "normal" jungle species. Given that they all talk, it's hard to see why the pandas should be so hard to swallow -- but somehow they're representative of the show's thrown-together approach to plot and humor. Even a mildly funny set-up -- George convinces the predators to eat vegetables while the jungle girls teach the smaller animals to be more assertive -- dissolves into a feeble pay-off, paying lip service to the need to restore the natural order but never managing to either do so or to be funny about it.

The primary trouble with George is that it's neither fish nor fowl -- it's meant for families to watch together, but it's too complicated for younger viewers and has little to offer parents. It's a hard balance to strike, and George has missed it.
