Although Carl Bentley is shown to have still been an adult when Allen Parrish was a child, David Alan Grier, who plays Carl, is actually four years younger than Robin Williams, who plays the adult Allen. See more »
When the inside of the house is flooded as a result of the monsoon, the water level rises over halfway to the ceiling until Carl kicks the door and unwittingly releases the water out the front door. But it would have been impossible for the water to pool in such a great amount because there was already a massive hole in the wall from when the stampeding animals tore through the house. The water would have simply flowed out of the house instead of pooling at all. See more »

Oh, get your hands off me!
The game is not over yet, Sarah!
Well, it is for me! You are not in the jungle anymore. Stop this, you don't treat people like this!

Near the end of the closing credits, Jumanji's drums can be heard beating. 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.
