When we last saw George, he and his bride Ursula were living in wedded bliss in the peaceful jungle. Unfortunately, all this is about to change. Scheming mother-in-law Beatrice Stanhope is not about to let her daughter and grandson hang around with the klutzy King of the Jungle forever. In an elaborate plot, she teams with Ursula's obsessive ex-fiance Lyle to hypnotize Ursula into leaving George and turn his jungle to mulch! That's when all vines lead to Las Vegas. There, George, Ape, Shep, and Tookie-Tookie must rescue Ursula, and then swing back to save the jungle from Lyle's bulldozing bullies. You'll go ape when these jungle jesters come together for irresistible all-new family entertainment.« less
"The first George of the Jungle was so silly, it was kind of cute and at times funny, helped by Brendan Frazer, this sequel, minus Frazer,is so silly it is actually unwatchable.
Any comedy whether silly or not should have an absolute minimum, to be funny, and George of the Jungle 2 is actually every word you can think of but the F word.
After 15 minutes of listening to the very annoying narrative talking about the old movie, the new movie, Disney etc...you want to give up watching movies altogether and watch CNN!!(this is how bad it is)
Even the delightfully charming and pretty Julie Benz could not save an awful direction and script.
If you like silly comedies,and want the F back in films then the market is full of well made and very funny examples, like Top Secret,Naked Gun, and the classic Carry On Up the Jungle (an all time favorite of mine), but trust me this film should be avoided at all costs!"
Dumb, Stupid, Idiotic but FUN

"Lets face it, no one expects a cinamatic masterpiece with "George of the Jungle" either 1 0r 2. They are based on a dumb but funny cartoon. So those people who expect something terrific are handicaping themselves from having a good time. It is nothing more than a cartoon done with humans and some CGI. Face it, any film with a sarcastic narrator lets the audience know exactly what type of film they will be watching.
The cast is just fine. It doesn't matter that there are new actors for George and Ursala. They are both very good in the roles. Anyone expecting an Oscar winning performance needs serious therapy. Christopher Showerman gives life to the stilted dialogue and is a perfect George. To play it differently would be to deny the character. The dialogue is also a satiric take off on that of the Tarzan films - "You Jane - me Tarzan".
There are many "inside" jokes in the film. One very funny bit is that evil lion who wants to become King, is standing on a recreation of Pride Rock from "Lion King", the whole scene is a take off on that part of "Lion King". There are many other such items that make the film really fun for the adult with the ability to recognize them.
Not a "great" film, but certainly a fun 90 minutes. "

"My three year old got this for Christmas and loves it. Don't expect a cinematic masterpiece. It's kind of corny but it's a cute movie. Lots of talking animals, colorful scenery, action, one liners that 3yr olds will like to repeat... "Eat fur jungle boy". I agree with an earlier reviewer that Jr. doesn't get enough screen time. It took me a little while to get used to the new George, but I think he's just as good as the first one, and equally as hubba hubba."
A New George for the Jungle

"George of the Jungle 2 was released by Walt Disney Home Video in 2003. This movie is in color and has a running time of 87 min. The director for this movie is David Grossman(third).
Even without Brendan Fraser, Disney produced a funny movie the whole family can enjoy. In the beginning of the movie there were a couple of tongue in cheek references to Brendan Fraser's absence. Christopher Showerman is the new George of the Jungle and he proved he can be just as funny as Brendan Fraser was. Ursula, portrayed by Julie Benz, is confused as to whether she will ever become first in George's life. In turn George worries that Ursula isn't happy about living in the jungle. An opportunity to take Ursula and their son, portrayed by Angus T. Jones, to the states arises. This is a good family movie with various parodies."
I wish I could give it a zero .....

"My husband and I just love the first movie, you can`t resist Brendan Frazer`s silly but charming playing without Brendan I expected a worse movie. but not this bad.... After a couple of scenes my husband leave the room, I just remain out of curiosity, how bad it could get? but it could... so don`t even bother , if you so curious about it just rent it and save money...."
