MOVIE: CU­RI­OUS GE­ORGE

FAM­ILY MOVIES ( FOXTEL), 6.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

THE whole Cu­ri­ous Ge­orge phe­nom­e­non wasn’t around when I was a kid. So I am in­debted to my chil­dren for bring­ing me up to speed on the cult sur­round­ing this cheeky lit­tle mon­key. OK, so the plot hinges upon li’l Ge­orge’s mas­tery of a 3G mo­bile phone. The best as­pect of Cu­ri­ous Ge­orge is that, un­like many kids’ flicks, it di­als down the un­nec­es­sary fizz fac­tor from to­tal su­gar rush to some­thing mildly sweet. This is all that the tar­get au­di­ence – tod­dlers and the oc­ca­sional for­giv­ing pri­mary schooler – needs for a good time.
