Last night I put on hold the fact that I'm 31 years old and watched the Curious George movie. Actually, what makes it all the more shocking is that The Boyfriend turned it on while channel surfing and kept it there. We watched the whole movie.
Curious George is one of the greatest children's book characters ever written. He brings out a child-like innocence in all of us. That time in our lives when everything was exciting and new. It also helps that George gets into all kinds of trouble - trouble that every kid wishes they had the nerve to start except they're afraid they'll get in trouble. With George, it's cute and also unexpected. You just don't know what that naughty little monkey will do next.
The movie is definitely geared towards little kids, which I think Ron Howard got some flak for. Seriously though, isn't it nice to just see a G-rated movie every now and then? And Lord knows there are so few these days. This one was cute, sweet, and dang I smiled the whole way through it. You can't watch Curious George and be a piss pot. Not possible.
