This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) My kids loved the first Curious George movie. They are now 5 and 3 1/2 and they absolutely love the 2nd one. They've watched it about 5 times in the past two weeks.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) I watched this movie initially on Netflix because my autistic 5 year old son is in a Curious George phase and the first movie was not available to Instant Stream. He loved the music and the story, and honestly, I really enjoyed it as well so we bought it on DVD for watching in the car. There are some very funny lines, even for adults, and it's a nice sweet story with not terribly detailed, but beautiful animation. A few weeks later, based on his love of this movie, we bought the first movie on DVD (Curious George (Widescreen Edition).) While it definitely had a bigger budget and bigger names, I did not enjoy the animation or the story as much. And while the first has a wonderful soundtrack featuring Jack Johnson, Curious George 2 has a great soundtrack as well with a band I did not previously know - Carbon Leaf - that's pretty darn good in their own right! There's also a Brian Wilson track, "California Sun."
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) I bought this for my five year old great-nephew. He loves it! He comes to my house after school and he watches it every day. I, personally, find it boring (I watched it with him the first time). But, for its intended audience, it's great. He doesn't want to see any of the extras and I haven't tried putting it in my computer for the games.
The popular curious monkey is back once again in another adventure along with Ted and a new friend named Kayla in a cross-country adventure filled with action and humor!With the success of the first "Curious George" film back in 2006, the popular character from the children stories by H.A. and Margret Rey makes his return to the sequel "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" in a direct-to-DVD release (note: the film made its world premiere last Summer in several countries) from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.In "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey", Mr. Bloombsberry wants Ted (played by Jeff Bennett) to become the next museum director. Excited about his job, he now needs to impress the museum's Board of Director's and has been too busy focusing on his work. With the Piccadilly Circus coming to town, George wants Ted to take him to the circus and Maggie wants Ted to spend more time with her. But he is too focused on working on his presentation.But nevertheless, he feels he does owe it to George to take him to the Piccadilly Circus and somehow, the two get selected to go up on stage by the magician Piccadilly (played by Tim Curry). But George as curious as ever, ends up at the bottom of the stage and meets a new friend named Kayla, an elephant from the circus who has the talent of juggling and ends up breaking him out of the circus. Government investigators led by Danno Wolfe (played by Jamie Kennedy) are called in to find out on what happened to Kayla the elephant and why its missing. Meanwhile, George is missing as well.George and Kayla end up walking through the city together with George taking back Kayla to his home. George and Kayla then watch a newscast in which Hark Hanson (played by NBC's "Today Show" host Matt Lauer) talks about the missing elephant and how he lived in California with his siblings. George realizes that Kayla is homesick and missing his family. Meanwhile, as a search for the elephant continues and news reports saying that the elephant was stolen, Ted goes back home and finds out that George and Kayla have been at the residence all this time. This is the last thing he needs to deal with because he has to prepare for his presentation to the museum Board of Directors.But before he can make the call to have Kayla returned, George decides to help Kayla go back home to California by going to the train station. And thus, Ted goes after them and finds the two inside a train box car. As he tries to convince them that they need to get out of the box car, the train starts moving and the next thing you know, the three are stuck inside and now are being taken cross country in the middle of nowhere.Meanwhile, the investigation starts to center on Ted as the main suspect in Kayla's disappearance and people including Ted's boss Mr. Bloomsberry and even Maggie believe there must be a reason why Ted may have escaped with Kayla. Ted knows he's in a deep mess but hopefully he can clear his name. But for George, all he wants is to make sure Kayla the elephant sees his brother and sister.VIDEO & AUDIO:"Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" is featured in anamorphic widescreen (1:78:1). Featuring the same vibrant style and painted backgrounds along with CG incorporated from the first film, "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" manages to capture the characters and the world of "Curious George" quite well. Featuring a pretty colorful pallet, and beautiful artistic backgrounds, fans of the first film will no doubt enjoy the animation used in the sequel.As for audio, audio is presented in English Dolby Digital 5.1 and Spanish and French Dolby Digital 2.0. Audio quality is nice and clear, dialogue is understandable and music is also crystal clear through the front and center channels.Subtitles are in English SDH, Espanol and Francais.SPECIAL FEATURES:"Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" comes with the following special features: * Curious George's Cross Country Caper Game - Using your DVD remote control, you can help George and Kayla travel throughout the country safely. * "Hold On, Here We Go" Music Video - (2:25) Featuring an animated video with clips from the film. * DVD-Rom - By playing the DVD on a computer (DVD-Rom Drive), you can access printable coloring pages, wallpapers and more. * Bonus TV episodes - Featuring two never-before-seen TV episodes (around 12 minutes each) from the new TV season of "Curious George" - "A Monkey's Duckling" in which a baby duckling thinks George is its mother. In "George's Super Subway Adventure", George as curious as always, hops aboard a subway in the city without Ted and thus Ted tries to go after him.JUDGMENT CALL:In my household, "Curious George" has been a big part of my young son's upbringing. From the animated television series, to the coloring books, reading books and the first film, I watched "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" alongside with him and he absolutely loved it and giggling at many parts of the film.As for me, I enjoyed the film. As usual, George's curiosity tends to get Ted in a bit of a bind and in this case, a fun adventure throughout the country. The sequel also features a good number of talent such as Tim Curry as Picadilly the magician, Jamie Kennedy as investigator "Danno" Wolfe, Matt Lauer as news host Hark Hanson, Jerry Lewis as the stationmaster, Frank Welker as a cow, Amy Hill as a flower pot lady and many others with short vocal cameos.Where the first film featured adventure and the romance between Ted and Maggie, there is less of the relationship factor between the two adults but focusing on the adventure of Ted, George and Kayla ad featuring a message to those who tend to put work ahead of their love ones. But for the most part, this is a fun "Curious George" film.In a parent standpoint, for me...I felt the film was quite safe but there is one segment in the film which Ted, George and Kayla meet new friends who own a farm and the son of the farmer is jumping high and landing in a haystack and then they all take part in the jumping of the haystack. My son thought that was such a cool thing and wondered if he can go up high and land on things and thus, it's important to talk to your child about those type of situations and making sure that he/she knows that they can't jump high from anything and land on whatever.As for the DVD, it's a pretty entertaining and educational DVD with a game, DVD-Rom features such as coloring pages and wallpaper, two never-before-seen TV episodes and more.Overall, "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" is just as entertaining as the original animated film. A lot of fun, humor, beautiful and vibrant animation and both myself and my seven-year-old enjoyed the film/DVD and I imagine parents and their children would enjoy this DVD release as well! Definitely recommended!
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) It was everything my granddaughter wanted it to be. She watches it over & over. It is a fun movie to watch
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) Purchased this for my grandson. He would watch this movie every day on Netflix...asking to watch Geroge and Kayla. When we moved I knew I had to get it for him on dvd. He opened for Christmas and went straight to the dvd player.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) I am a huge Carbon Leaf (they do the soundtrack) fan and couldn't wait for this DVD to come out. Now, I am converting my 2 year old to be a big fan :)We put this movie in the DVD player when we went on a 6 hour trip and pushed the replay button. My husband and I got tired of the dialog after 2 or 3 repeats but our son still only wants to watch this movie out of his whole movie selection.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey! (Amazon Instant Video) I would like to say I LOVE this movie and i probably did the first 10 times i HAD to watch it but now i try to hide the DVD. I bought this movie for my 2yr old and it was an instant hit her previouse favorite movie (Dispicable Me) went back on the shelf and now she will not watch anything else but "geoge". What I really loved about the DVD is that I'm trying to teach only spanish to my daughter and this video has the spanish track so it was perfect for me. She has watched this movie so much that the disk is already scratched so I will be ordering a new one soon. It's the perfect little story, she loves George, Kayla and all their "travesuras" (Mischief) I would definitely recomend this DVD to anyone looking to entertain their little ones. Just a word of caution my daughter loves to imitate George so she goes around the house acting like a monkey! lol ENJOY!!
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) This is a really good kid's movie. In the first movie, The Man With The Yellow hat's voice is done by Will Ferrell, and in this one it is done by the same voice as the PBS series. I think it is better that that way for the sake of continuity. As for the Man's behavior, isn't it only appropriate that he is stressed out over his current work situation and the fact that his monkey wandered off with an elephant on a train headed for California? Kids see us (adults) handle life's stress and can relate to how George feels as he has to deal with the Man's stress. I don't think he lashes out at George or "freaks" out any more then the average, NORMAL, adult.My three-year-old has watched this movie over a hundred times and has never once asked me about what kidnapping or murder is, but when he does, I will respond with the truth, since these things do happen in real life, why not deal with it when the source is a harmless movie?In response to the "talentless band" who preforms the music for this movie, I think they are great. The songs are appropriate for the feeling of each scene and are really very good. So they aren't "mainstream" but they are good.Over all, I think this is a wonderful movie for any child who enjoys the PBS series.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) My daughter loves this movie. She is always asking to watch it. She especially loves the extra episodes in the special features section.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) Curious George always have good , clean shows. Thankful that these shows are always kid friendly and Curious George is just an adorable monkey!
My 2 year old loves watching Curious George on pbs while at home. We must have several dozen episodes recorded. Now when we go on road trips, we are able to watch Curious George thanks to the dvds. They are the same episodes you watch on tv. Each DVD contains 8 shows totaling over 90 minutes of pure entertainment for our child to watch.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) This movie is a direct sequel to the Curious George movie and has some of the same characters, such as Ivan the Doorman and Mr. Bloomsbury, the owner of the museum. The Man With The Yellow Hat is voiced by the same person who voices the character in the PBS series.As a parent, I am extremely disappointed in this sequel. What kind of kids' movie mentions *murder* and has a *kidnapping* theme??? There isn't an actual murder, but why bring it up so little kids can ask about that word? (It's brought up by the security guy character, voiced by Jamie Kennedy, who is investigating the disappearance of a circus elephant)Unlike the PBS series, The Man With The Yellow Hat does not keep his cool or patience. He yells at George and freaks out several times.There is not nearly enough George and way too much of The Man freaking out and of Matt Lauer reporting on an elephant kidnapping. The character the kids love in this series is George, yet you'd think he was a supporting character with how little we see of him and his antics.We loved the original movie and adore the PBS series, but I do not recommend this movie.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) Love this movie my 3 year old is addicted to it. He loves the elephant and all George's adventures. YOu can't go wrong with this movie.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) We love Curious George because it is the same as when my wife and I were kids. There are no agendas or hidden meanings, just a good story.This particular story is very cute and though it is much longer than the PBS episodes, my boy has no problem sitting through the entire thing.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey! (Amazon Instant Video) My 18 month old daughter LOVES Curious George! This is such a cute movie for young toddlers and/or pre-schoolers! Would recommend it for family movie night.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) i bought this on amazon.com because it was unavailable in the UK. it took just a week to come. My son and daughter adore george and this was a nice little follow up film for their birthdays. Its not as good as the first but its a nice story that will keep them entertained. its a shame they used different voices for the second film, i dont think the children notice but i miss dick van dykes voice :) the following week it was on Virgin movie channel so i neednt have bothered buy it, now i have the dvd copy and a recording.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey (DVD) We absolutely love this movie! My little one starts dancing when the intro music comes on, she just loves it. I have a 6yr and 2 yr old, they both enjoy it. I even enjoy watching it with them. Its one we watch over and over and never tire of.
This review is from: Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey! (Amazon Instant Video) My three boys, 2 ,4, and 6 years old really enjoy this movie. They would watch it over and over again if I let them!
Frank Welker continues to voice George in this follow up, making themain character as lovable as ever. The few returning humans aredifferent, but that is only to be expected. Frank also supplies thevoice work for a duck and a cow. George makes friends with an elephantcalled Kayla and tries to reunite her with her family. Meanwhile Tedhas an opportunity to become the new museum director. However thingsdon't go according to plan. Can Ted decide where his priorities reallylie? The story isn't as strong as the original, but it's still a cutejourney to take. The soundtrack isn't as catchy, but it's pleasantenough. Also seeing the 2D format is very refreshing. 6/10
