Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey! (2009, USA) C-80m. ** D: Norton Virgien. Starring (the voices of) Jeff Bennett, Jamie Kennedy, Tim Curry, Jeff McNeal, Fred Tatasciore, Jerry Lewis, Clint Howard. Sequel to the sweet CURIOUS GEORGE (2006) suffers from silly, unmotivated plot. The mischievous monkey causes an elephant to escape from a magician's show and takes him across the country, hoping to reunite him with his family. For small children, like the first film, but a notch below that.
