George of the Jungle

George of the Jungle is quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. The takeoffs from various other movies - the worst is the Lion King takeoff- and corny jokes are bad enough, but they don't seem to know when to stop with a "meant-to-be-funny" bad stunt. The scene where everyone yells "Watch Out for that Tree" and George of the Jungle proceeds to slam into it wasn't funny the first time, but they repeat this stupid scene over and over throughout the movie. It's as if they think that if it didn't get laughs the first time, it may get laughs the second, third , or hundredth time if they annoy the audience enough. I didn't laugh, and didn't hear too many other people yucking it up in the theater either, although I did hear a few forced-sounding chuckles and several crying babies.

Let me tell you just a little about the ridiculous plot to justify my bad review. It's about George of the Jungle (duh) a guy who fell out of an airplane and into an African jungle when he was a baby. Give me a break. About twenty years later a sickeningly sweet American and her stuffy, stuck-up fiance are in the African jungle shooting a wildlife video. While being attacked by a lion, she meets George, falls madly in love with him, dumps her now-jailed fiance, and takes George back to New York with her. I won't even bother pointing out how unrealistic and impossible this is because I'm sure my readers have enough intelligence to figure that out by themselves. Unfortunately, the screenwriters for this waste of time didn't.

I give it a one (although I'd rather give it a minus five!)
