Continuity mistake: In the scene where George hits the tree and falls on a branch with green stuff on it, you can catch a glimpse of his briefs.
George of the Jungle (1997)
Directed by: Sam Weisman
Starring: Brendan Fraser, Leslie Mann, Thomas Haden Church, Richard Roundtree
Baby George was lost in the jungle. Ape raised him. Wealthy Ursula Stanhome ditches Lyle, her snobby boyfriend and goes off to Africa to find herself. She finds George and romance ensues. Meanwhile, Lyle comes after her to win her back.
Narrator: And so, onward and upward the tired trekkers trudged on feverished footsies over perilous paths. When they beheld the mighty Ape Mountain, the reacted with awe.
Narrator: I said, "Awe." A-W-E.
Narrator: That's better.
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: 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.

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.
