Curious George 2: Follow that Monkey Universal Studios, $19.98 81 minutes Best for ages 3 and up
What it's about: Curious George is up to his usual antics, as he leads The Man with the Yellow Hat on a cross-country adventure to reunite Kayla, a homesick elephant, with her family. What kids will like: Kids will be entertained by the action-packed plot and the lovable animal characters.
What parents will like: Honestly, this is not a movie I'd recommend. The subject matter is a bit serious for kids: George and The Man with the Yellow Hat are accused of kidnapping Kayla. It's all a misunderstanding, of course, but it's a very adult theme for a children's movie. Also, George gets into dangerous, madcap situations that children may try to imitate.
