Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Matthew O'Callaghan and screenwriter Ken Kaufman haven't tried to create a film that's hip, just one that's funny and sweet, and in that sense they've succeeded."
‑ Christy Lemire, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"George is just so darn cute with his big eyes and bright smile and perpetually sunny disposition, he's pretty much impossible to resist."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Sure, it's a film for the toddlers, but that doesn't mean the adults can't find something good from it."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's a gentle, unhurried, largely hand-drawn children's cartoon with a nice simple storyline and no nods and winks to the grown-ups."
‑ Steve Rose, Guardian
"It's harmless, colourful fun, but even the very young are used to better."
‑ , Sydney Morning Herald
"Gentle enough to satisfy the wee ones but has little to offer their adult companions..."
‑ Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
"It's good old-fashioned family entertainment."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"This harmless but charmless caper will have everybody except the most undemanding tot fidgeting."
‑ Neil Smith, Film4
"A decent distraction for the young ones, it also seems content to be merely that."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Inocente como seu público-alvo (as crianças menores), é um filme cuja base reside no carinho entre seus dois personagens principais. E, embora isto não gere uma narrativa exatamente intensa, conquista pelo calor de seus sentimentos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The welcome absence of strained cleverness qualifies as one of its biggest virtues."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"Curious George is probably the purest family movie in years."
‑ Chris Garcia, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"George's character has been intensely cutesified here, with little of the subversive edge which remains the secret of his lasting appeal."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A great kids' film, and a vehicle for a beloved character that will hopefully send parents scurrying to the bookstore for the genuine article."
‑ Stefan Ulstein, Christianity Today
"The whole thing might be a bit more bearable were it not for the tooth-rotting sweetness of Jack Johnson's songs, which are all about learning by doing, and how important it is to have friends, and other such guff."
‑ Paul Arendt, BBC.com
