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.
