    Young children, and monkeys, thrive when they enjoy a close relationship with their families and caregivers, but their innate sense of curiosity is bound to get these young members of society into trouble from time to time. In Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey, the Man with the Yellow Hat (Ted) is up for a promotion to museum director at the Bloomsberry museum--all he has to do is convince the board of directors that he's the best man for the job. As Ted focuses in on his priorities for the museum's future, some gentle prodding from his monkey George and woman friend Maggie remind him that those you care about need to be high on one's priority list as well. A trip to Piccadilly's circus seems like just what George, Maggie, and Ted need, but when Ted "volunteers" for a magic trick that goes terribly wrong, George and the circus's elephant Kayla wind up missing. What ensues is a perilous and adventure-filled cross-country train chase that ends with an insightful lesson about the importance of family, perseverance, and doing what's right. The great thing about this film is that the animators have preserved the simple, colorful style of the original book illustrations for Margret and H. A. Rey's Curious George, while adding in some distinctly modern touches. Also, the voice talent, music, and script are very effective at re-creating the tone of the books. There are, however, two starkly strange elements in this film: the private investigator character Danno Wolfe and the television reporter Hark Hanson. Perhaps the introduction of these characters was just another attempt to modernize the story, but the cynical detective and sensationalist television personality seem completely out of place in the innocent world of Curious George. Nonetheless, toddlers, young children, and even their parents can't help but delight in the simple antics of this very curious monkey named George and his caregiver the Man with the Yellow Hat. --Tami Horiuchi

    The popular curious monkey is back once again in another adventure along with Ted and a new friend named Kayla in a cross-country adventure filled with action and humor!

    With the success of the first "Curious George" film back in 2006, the popular character from the children stories by H.A. and Margret Rey makes his return to the sequel "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" in a direct-to-DVD release (note: the film made its world premiere last Summer in several countries) from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

    In "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey", Mr. Bloombsberry wants Ted (played by Jeff Bennett) to become the next museum director. Excited about his job, he now needs to impress the museum's Board of Director's and has been too busy focusing on his work. With the Piccadilly Circus coming to town, George wants Ted to take him to the circus and Maggie wants Ted to spend more time with her. But he is too focused on working on his presentation.

    But nevertheless, he feels he does owe it to George to take him to the Piccadilly Circus and somehow, the two get selected to go up on stage by the magician Piccadilly (played by Tim Curry). But George as curious as ever, ends up at the bottom of the stage and meets a new friend named Kayla, an elephant from the circus who has the talent of juggling and ends up breaking him out of the circus. Government investigators led by Danno Wolfe (played by Jamie Kennedy) are called in to find out on what happened to Kayla the elephant and why its missing. Meanwhile, George is missing as well.

    George and Kayla end up walking through the city together with George taking back Kayla to his home.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, Mature Themes March 6, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    This movie is a direct sequel to the Curious George movie and has some of the same characters, such as Ivan the Doorman and Mr. Bloomsbury, the owner of the museum. The Man With The Yellow Hat is voiced by the same person who voices the character in the PBS series.

    As a parent, I am extremely disappointed in this sequel. What kind of kids' movie mentions *murder* and has a *kidnapping* theme??? There isn't an actual murder, but why bring it up so little kids can ask about that word? (It's brought up by the security guy character, voiced by Jamie Kennedy, who is investigating the disappearance of a circus elephant)

    Unlike the PBS series, The Man With The Yellow Hat does not keep his cool or patience. He yells at George and freaks out several times.

    There is not nearly enough George and way too much of The Man freaking out and of Matt Lauer reporting on an elephant kidnapping. The character the kids love in this series is George, yet you'd think he was a supporting character with how little we see of him and his antics.

    We loved the original movie and adore the PBS series, but I do not recommend this movie.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Curious George 2 - The Fun Continues! March 2, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey is a fantastic follow up to the 2006 original. Curious George meets a new friend, Kayla, a homesick elephant who wants to see her family again. Together, with the Man in the Yellow Hat, they embark on a cross-country adventure where comedy and adventure ensue. I thoroughly enjoyed George's new adventure. I would even say I enjoyed this movie more than the original. The animation is bright, vivid and fluid. Carbon Leaf who provided the songs for this sequel fit harmoniously with the story and the world of Curious George. The highlight of the soundtrack is "The Friendship Song" when George and Kayla first meet. The voice actors do a nice job giving life to these wonderful characters; you just can't help but smile when hearing George's coos. I HIGHLY recommend any fan of Curious George, family movies, and/or animation to add Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey into their collection. Hopefully we will continue to see our favorite curious little monkey on many more big adventures.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Why this movie is the best ever...according to my 2yo October 28, 2011
    Format:DVD
    You're probably looking at this b/c you've got kids, so you don't have extra time. Let's start.

    1) There's a monkey. Not just any monkey, tho, it's Curious George, whom my 2yo loves to watch on PBS during the week. Although just any monkey might have sufficed. Hard to say.

    2) There's an elephant...who appears out of a BUBBLE. My 2yo loves elephants & blowing bubbles. Combining the two simply results in the most fabulous concept ever. Period. (To add to it, eventually there are THREE elephants!)

    3) There's a train, & the monkey & elephant ride on it. My 2yo LOVES trains.

    So, as you can see, the above results in the toddler trifecta for the perfect movie ever made...at least for my 2yo.

    Here's why I can stand it.

    1) I've always loved Curious George, & this is a not-annoying cartoon sequel, unlike what the Disney franchise likes to crank out.

    2) The music is surprisingly decent, even borderline good. I find myself singing along while my 2yo is watching.

    3) It is the ONLY thing (indoors) that will hold my toddler's attention for longer than 15 mins. Not even Legos or Sesame Street can boast that accomplishment.

    4) It's available on Netflix streaming (as of the time of this review). Um...awesome.

    5) The bad guys aren't really bad...just socially awkward & perhaps lacking some intelligence.

    6) "Scary" things happen, but my toddler knows that it will be resolved satisfactorily, so she doesn't get scared. There's no death or heavy emotional challenges. No trauma (unlike Disney, again).

    7) And there's no romance! I really appreciate that. I get tired of children's movies feeling a romantic element is necessary on some scale. Not all do it, but enough do that it gets annoying.
