Festivale Spring 1997

George of the Jungle

Seen by one of our sources, this film has all the subtlety of a cartoon, and all the jokes from the original. It has some very slow patches between the memorable moments.

There is no doubt that Brendan Fraser is a talented and possibly fearless comedian. He is great to look at (which is increasingly important to Hollywood's castocracy) and willing to appear foolish. For this reviewer, any slapstick, physical or emotional is off-putting, and the central premise of the original, and this version, is slapstick of both kinds.

George meets girl, girl learns to love jungle, girl takes George back to concrete jungle, George and girl must beat down all opposition to live happily ever after.

It's a cartoon with actors.
