The Sir-Save-Alot scene was shot in Tsawwassen, BC located at 56th Street & 12th Avenue in what was the Tsawwassen Shoppers Mall. The Sir-Save-ALot store was the old Super Valu store (which was a grocery store before it closed). At the time of filming, the store was vacant, and although the exterior was repaired after the movie was shot, the store never re-opened. The mall has since been redeveloped, with Safeway being the anchor tenant. The Sir-Save-ALot/Super Valu in the old mall was along the west perimeter of the current mall, what is now a parking lot/entranceway. See more »

SPOILERS: Green flames swirl around to form the opening title, which spirals into a vortex. This is in fact the sequence that occurs when Alan finishes the game near the end. See more »
You know the drill: young Alan Parrish gets sucked into a board game called Jumanji, returns when a brother and sister are playing 26 years later, and has to battle the animals that wreak havoc on the town. It all seems pretty simple, but they play some neat tricks with it in the movie. As the adult Alan, Robin Williams is more subdued than usual, but still makes the character admirable. With good support from Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, David Alan Grier, Bebe Neuwirth, Jonathan Hyde and Patricia Clarkson, this is a pretty interesting movie. I will admit that the monkeys looked pretty fake, but we can't dwell on that in this movie; the point is to enjoy oneself while watching it.
Oh and one more thing: from "Jumanji", I learned the difference between alligators and crocodiles.
