Storyline Heading
When four teenagers discover an old video game console with a game they've never heard of, they decide to play and are immediately thrust into the game's jungle setting, in the bodies of the avatar characters they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji - Jumanji plays you. To win, they'll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they'll be stuck in the game forever...

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Comedy - This is a sequel, not a complete reboot, to the popular 1995 family-aimed adventure starring the late Robin Williams, but none of the original cast returns, with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas in the leading roles in an updated concept: instead of a board game, the title is the name of a video game. Fans of all the stars will be pleased, and in keeping with their edgier personas than that of the stars of the 1996 film--and the focus being on teens rather than kids-- there is some harsh language and more crude and suggestive humor that will be of caution to parents of young children. There are also some intense action moments that may be of concern. That said, families of pre-teens and up will find this to be fairly safe viewing.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good A tremendous improvement over the tepid 1995 original, this quasi-sequel brings humor, fun performances, and a canny understanding of late 1990s-style video games to a party that never takes itself seriously.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...this is a likable, funny diversion, and sometimes more than that. It has enough twists and surprises to pull viewers along... ...the actors take their assignments to play teenagers so seriously that the film surfs along on a wave of poker-faced earnestness, mixing moments of pathos in with its super-broad slapstick.

NY Post Full Review
Poor "Welcome to the Jungle” seems to have blown the budget on its cast, who are trapped in a boring, low-stakes plot. Who's the audience for this movie? It's not smart, scary or funny enough for adults and older teens, and it's inappropriate for young kids.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Computer-generated effects work overtime to scare up excitement, but this movie finds it sweet spot in comedy, notably when Ruby shows her skills at "dance fighting." This updated Jumanji can't outrun the clichés on its tail, but its puppy-eagerness to please is hard to resist.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 116 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "JUMANJI." I haven't seen reviews this high in quite a while. I can't believe the New York Post critic gave this movie a "Poor" rating. This is a MUST SEE MOVIE for the ENTIRE FAMILY!
