A clumsy ape man George (played by Brendan Fraser) who can’t seem to avoid crashing into trees survived a plane crash when he was a baby and is raised by a wise ape. One day he encounters a beautiful damsel in distress Ursula (Leslie Mann) who joins her fiancé Lyle (Thomas Haden Church) in his perilous adventure across African wilderness. George falls in love with her despite their differences in lifestyles. But will he leave his beloved jungle to win her affections and adapt to civilization??? A good-natured, family-oriented comedy and there are lots of laughs with John Cleese as a talking gorilla called Ape and an awesome narration from Keith Scott who is hilarious as the sardonic narrator.

This critic remembered how unappealing and dull this film was when it first showed. George (Brendan Fraser) has a talking gorilla named Ape, a toco toucan named Tookie, Little Monkey (played by Crystal), and an African elephant named Shep. The plot was ridiculous, humor was dry and acting just horrendous. This reviewer recalls having a few yawns during its viewing. George of the Jungle was not entertaining in most aspects.

Clever and funny. Though, I do think that it is outdone by the very similar Dudley Do-Right.
