Monkey Movie

Movie: Curious George (2006)
Setting: New York?, Africa; contemporary

Pleasant but unremarkable kiddie feature taken from the books by Margret & H.A. Ray. Glossy animation style and Jack Johnson soundtrack more memorable then stock plot about saving a museum. Fun casting of Dick Van Dyke as museum head. Ed O'Ross gets to voice another Russian. Current PBS series, and even the minimally animated shorts I watched as a kid, are better then this.

On re-assesment (i.e. my nephew was watching it again) there is something to be said for the films straight forwardness and unpertentous simplicity.
