MOVIE: CURIOUS GEORGE
FAMILY MOVIES ( FOXTEL), 6.30pm
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.
