George of the Jungle


Heiress Ursula Stanhope (Leslie Mann) falls in love with a clumsy jungle man named George (Brendan Fraser) and brings him to New York, where dangers await everywhere. This movie was based on an internationally little-known animated TV show (1967-1970), but audiences shouldnā€™t reject it. The filmmakers worked hard to create the kind of energy we know from classic animated films, and it does gain a lot from its crazy style and silly sound effects (as well as a certain elephant and an ape voiced by John Cleese). Fraser is perfect as Tarzan, no, George, and narrator Keith Scott is very funny.Ā 

1997-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed byĀ Sam Weisman. Cast: Brendan Fraser (George), Leslie Mann (Ursula Stanhope), Thomas Haden Church (Lyle Van de Groot), Holland Taylor, John Bennett Perry, Abraham Benrubiā€¦ Richard Roundtree. Voice of John Cleese. Narrated by Keith Scott.

Trivia: Scott is the son of Bill Scott who narrated the original series. Followed by a direct-to-DVD sequel, George of the Jungle 2 (2003).
