Baby George survived a plane crash only to be left in the jungle to be raised by gorillas. George ( Brendan Fraser) grows up with friends like Ape, the talking gorilla, Tookie, and Shep, his pet "pooch". Ursula (Leslie Mann) is a fancy, rich lady who is almost attacked by a lion and then the "white ape" (that would be George) swoops in the save the day. This is a 1997 comedic remake of something similar to Tarzan is rated PG, other stars include Thomas Haden Church, Richard Roundtree and the voice of John Cleese.
This fun and even the kids love to watch this movie over and over again. Some of the jokes are more mature in content, the overall fun of this movie is in Brendan Frasers' physical comedy of being a really big klutz and the fact that several times there is charecter interaction with the narrator or the cameras. A great movie for the family on a rainy afternoon.
