        George of the Jungle was a nice family film.It was a pretty non serious film made for comedy.Brenden Frasier was great as George of teh Jungle.He had a bright and charming personallity.He is also very strong and brave.Because he was raised in the jungle.For example,in the city,he saves a man from a tower.The film also had a nice premise.it had a good message about the importance of true love.The film showed that you shoul’nt marry someone just for thier status.Ursula married George because she loved him.It didn’t matter that he was raised in the jungle and didn’y have great social status..The film also had a lot of fun comedy material.There was this funny running gag in which George would hit a tree while swining from vines in the jungle.This gag was used pretty good.The writers just didn’t use it with trees.If George hit a boat or rock or some other object,the narrator of the film would state it..It was al;so funny how Shep had a pet elephant whom he thought

        was a dog.

        It wasn’t just this that was funny.It was also funny that the elephant actually thought he was a dog.He would play fetch with a giant stick.My favorite scene in the film was when a gorilla fell in love with Lyle at the end of the film.It was hilarious.It was also a gentle way to have something bad happen to a unlikable character like Lyle.It would be kind of harsh to have the character get killed.Especially since its a Disney film..Another favorite scene of mine was when George was doing a silly dance in hopes of getting Ursula to like him.It was so funny because Ursula was simply confused with the dance.She thought it was funny but didn’t really get why George did it.The film was really good overall.however,there is just one thing I didn’t like about it.Ursula’s mom didn’t get any real punishment in the film.I thought she should have since she was a really nasty character.She kept forcing Ursula to marry Lyle for selfish reasons.She knew Lyle was very wealthy and just wanted her family to be part of his wealth.She also threatened George with physical violence if he continued his romantic relationship with Ursula.i generally thought she was more nasty than Lyle.Lyle was generally just a buffoon for the most part.However,Ursula’s mother was very mean spirited.
