george-of-the-jungle-DI-02.jpgOne of my favorite live-action Disney flicks growing up; but how well does it really hold up today and the fact that I realized its based on a popular animated series! A man raised in the jungle by apes falls in love with a wealthy American heiress. It stars Brendan Fraser as the eponymous main character (LOL!), a primitive man who was raised by animals in an African jungle; Leslie Mann as his love interest (Love her); and Thomas Haden Church as her treacherous fiancé (he’s fun). The “Watch Out for That Tree” gag can get old really fast; but regardless I enjoy this movie for being my favorites and sticking closely to its source material. Also the puppetry and visual effects hold up really well, even by today’s standards. A fair recommendation for fans of the classic animated series!
