My Thoughts

I have always loved Curious George and this movie is a great addition to our DVD collection. In Back to the Jungle, George is selected for a space travel program. You'll follow him along on his adventures as he goes to space camp and learns the ropes of being an astronaut. Even though he gets into a few scraps along the way, and makes the Man in the Yellow Hat a little nervous,  he makes it to take off. Of course, when its time to take off, George gets curious and messes with some things he shouldn't. This leads to a crash landing in Africa where he meets a bunch of new animal friends. While George enjoys his time in the jungle, he misses the Man in the Yellow Hat, whose out searching for him. Will the two be reunited? You'll have to watch to find out.

Back to Jungle is a fun family film that features a classic character that has been adored for generations. My children loved watching George go through space training and his romp in the jungle. The fun sing-a-long songs in the bonus area make for even more fun. This is a great family film that's perfect for family movie night.
