George of the Jungle | 1997 | PG | - 2.2.1

Brendan Fraser is a man who has lived in the jungle all his life with apes as family.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - George spends most of the screen time clad only in a lioncloth (and in one scene he has a book in front of himself and a bowl behind, and nothing else). Kissing, sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - An ape is shot with a tranquilizer dart. A lion nearly attacks a couple. A man fights a lion with punches, kicks and tosses. A couple nearly drown in rapids. A couple of fights with punches, kicks (sometimes in the crotch), bites, twirls, etc. Mostly cartoonish: lots of falls and pratfalls, lots of scenes of people slamming into trees and other things. A man has a bit of blood on his bandages in one scene. Threatening with guns.

LANGUAGE 1 - One anatomical reference.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The jungle, primates and other animals, falling in love.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
