Margret and H.A. Rey's beloved children's stories come to the big screen in sunny primary colors and traditional 2-D animation that capture the whimsy and simplicity of the original illustrations. George is suitably adorable, wreaking the kind of havoc that gives tykes a guilty thrill. Yet the movie concludes with the specious moral that reading is inferior to experiencing life firsthand, which seems particularly dubious when experience is defined as visiting a theme park. Matthew O'Callaghan directed; among the voice talent are Will Ferrell, Drew Barrymore, Dick Van Dyke, and David Cross. G, 86 min.
