Jackie

There are two movies in "Jackie." One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.

This 'George' is for kids

From: David Brewster, Burbank, CA

Thank you for your review of “Curious George.” We understood from the beginning that this was a movie for children so we have no regrets in making it that way. I don't think there are enough movies for younger children myself because it really is an adult world filled with politics, fear and offensive humor. The saga of bringing George to the screen is a long one. A friend of mine, Brad Bird [“The Incredibles”) had written a great script but it was considered too adult . It's a very hard line to walk and since the books were for children we chose the only real path we could. No regrets or looking back. What Matt did in the one year he had was amazing to me as an artist because so many had failed before him trying.

To any of the parents who suffered for watching a children's film , sorry but there wasn't really any other choice. I wish we had put in the pipe smoking scene but… then again… I have no wish to be murdered by parents who find their kids lighting up their favorite Bjarne pipe. Thanks again
