George of the Jungle

Corrected entry: George lands in a pile of oak leaves during one scene at his house, but oak trees wouldn't be found in the jungle.

Correction: This movie is not even remotely based in fact. While it is true that you would not find oak trees in the jungle, you would not find talking apes or elephants who fetch either.


Corrected entry: When George is on the bridge saying, 'to swing or not to swing' the over-dubbing on his voice is terribly obvious.

Correction: George didn't say "To swing or not to swing", it was the narrator who said it, and then George says "Swing".

Corrected entry: When Lyle hears Ursula laugh and falls in the elephant droppings his shirt is plain blue. But, a few seconds later, when he is laying on the ground, about to get up and shoot George, his shirt is white with blue stripes.

Correction: he was wearing the blue shirt over the white with blue stripes.

Corrected entry: When Lyle falls face first into the elephant droppings, his shirt is covered in poop. The next scene (seconds later) his shirt is perfectly clean.

Correction: He was wearing a blue shirt over another one.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where George is teaching Ursula how to swing on vines, George crashes into a tree. When he lands on the net the gorillas have you can see bits of a black trampoline underneath the cover.

Trivia: Brendan Fraser auditioned for the role, but wasn't going to get it. However, he'd brought his dog along to the audition and it was behind the sofa. When it started barking at the end of the audition, Brendan leaped over the sofa and started barking back at it on his hands and knees. They offered him the part immediately.

Question: In the scene where Lyle returns, he tells his missionaries to subdue George. I think one of them is a young Colin Farrell, but I didn't see his name in the credits. Did he have an uncredited role? Can someone help, as I don't have the DVD to check up on it?

Answer: There's certainly no listing for him on the IMDb, which is generally good with uncredited appearances. Farrell was still working in the UK and Ireland at the time of the film, which was entirely US shot, and didn't become involved in Hollywood productions until about the year 2000, three years after GOTJ came out, which would seem to make it extremely unlikely that he appeared in it.


Answer: So frustrating that only three of the mercenaries are credited when there are 5 of them! I agree that one looks exactly like Colin Farrell.

Answer: No Collin Farrell was not in the movie.
