George of the Jungle (1997) CAP Thermometers George of the Jungle (1997) was a clippy and snappy romp through the jungle with the personification of the famous cartoon character. It was even funny at times. But...

As seems typical with new age movies, George of the Jungle (1997) was infested with liberalism of previously avoided sexual material. Granted, to the average movie-goer seeing a hit to the crotch many times is not as bold as seeing sexual intercourse or nudity, but such material in such density is just another step in the path of sexual freedom, lowering of inhibitions, and toppling of thresholds of acceptability. Since this movie had so little unacceptable material in other Investigation Areas, the focus of the producers and writers was very clear -- on George's crotch. George of the Jungle (1997) is nothing more than an elementary school version of an "adult" dime novel.

While Wanton Violence/Crime (W) took only three hits due to careless handling of a firearm, a firearm injury, and abduction, Impunity/Hate (I)(1) took seven hits due to material such as rough language and belittlement of paternal position and authority. Now comes Sex/Homosexuality (S) -- the top loser -- lost almost 75% of its starting 100 points due to things such as multiple crotch hits, a male hand on a female breast, flash nudity with inappropriate touching, and Las Vegas showgirl nudity of posteriors and cleavage. Drugs/Alcohol (D) suffered only one hit due to celebration drinking. Offense to God (O)(2) lost some points, as usual, to the use of God's name in vain but at least without the four letter explicative. Murder/Suicide (M)(3) was refreshingly free of any noted occurrences of murder or suicide.

Additional examples of unacceptable material included:

  • rubbing of male anatomy
  • single events of crotch hits
  • male hand on female breast
  • implication of dream sexual fantasies
  • inappropriate touching
  • sexual innuendo
  • suggestive eye movements
  • careless handling of a firearm
  • assault with a firearm with resulting injury
  • animal urination
  • reckless daredevil antics
  • revealing dress
  • God's name in vain without the four letter explicative
  • threat of assault on male organ
  • belittlement of paternal position and authority
  • harsh language
  • abduction
  • celebration drinking
  • Las Vegas showgirl nudity of posteriors

In addition, the CAP Influence Density (ID) figure for the movie and the number of examples per hour of unacceptable material in each of the Investigation Areas is provided.

    George of the Jungle (1997) CAP Scorecard
    In accordance with the comparative baseline data of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model, George of the Jungle (1997) presented programming equivalent to R-rated material Sex/Homosexuality and programming equivalent to PG material in Impunity/Hate. The movie presented programming equivalent to G-rated matieral in all of the rest of the CAP Investigation Areas: Wanton Violence/Crime, Drugs/Alcohol, Offense to God, and Murder/Suicide. Thus, George of the Jungle (1997) was equivalent to 17% R-rated material, 17% PG material, and 66% G-rated material.

    (1) As noted in CAP Special Report-001, "Investigation Area and Scoring Trend," of the six CAP Investigation Areas, Impunity/Hate was the strongest presence in all four movie classifications. It has a strong revelation about the entertainment media.

    (2) The use of the three/four letter word vocabulary without God's name is incorporated into the Impunity/Hate Investigation Area. The use of God's name with or without the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Offense to God Investigation Area. There is no duplication. As required of the Holy Scriptures, unless God's name is used with reverence to His glory and praise, its use is considered in vain, whether literal or euphemistic.

    (3) Only portrayal of successful murder or suicide are incorporated into Murder/Suicide. Presentation of attempts to commit murder or suicide, deaths by police action, and deaths by war are incorporated into Wanton Violence/Crime.

    Please remember we believe that if even one of the six Investigation Area scores for a movie is equivalent to the CAP comparative baseline database scoring range for R, PG-13, or PG material, the entire movie should be regarded as so rated.  For example, if only Wanton Violence/Crime earns a score equivalent to R but all other Investigation Areas earn a score equivalent to G, THERE IS R-RATED MATERIAL IN THE MOVIE AND YOUR KIDS WILL SEE IT AND HEAR IT IF THEY WATCH THE MOVIE!
