Trivia

According to author Chris Van Allsburg, the word "jumanji" is Zulu for "many effects," which alludes to "the exciting consequences of the game" as mentioned in the film. See more »

Goofs

When the mosquito is on the windshield, Alan refers to it as "he". Only female mosquitoes bite, not males. However arguably, many people do not know this and considering Allan never even finished the sixth grade, it could be presumed that he didn't know either (or the other two children for that matter).

Quotes

Hunter Van Pelt: [to Alan] You miserable coward! Come back and face me like a man!
[Alan hurls a sword at Van Pelt, which halts him... briefly]
Hunter Van Pelt: Not good enough, Sonny Jim! I'm coming, ready or not...

n Adventure For Those Who Seek To Find A Way To Leave Their World Behind
29 November 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Another of my favorite childhood movies, there is Jumanji,one of my favorite movies with Robin Willians and Kirsten Dunst. Alan Parrish is a rich boy and his family were the founders of the city of New England, where the boy and his family lives. Not only that, his father is a businessman who has lots of deals and one of them is the notable shoe factory. But Alan life is not so good as we think: he is having problems with her best friend Sarah's boyfriend and his gang and his father wants to send him to a boarding school. Angry, he says to his father that he is never going to talk to him again and will ran away from his home. But when Alan was going to scape from his house, his friend Sarah goes to his house to talk, and they end up playing the mysterious game called Jumanji that Alan found buried. The strange game starts, and many strange things like wild animals start to show up, until Alan enter the game and be confined there until the results of the dice be 5 or 8. Sarah, too afraid to continue playing,run away. After 26 years,two brothers named Judy and Peter found the game and start playing it, like Sarah and Alan 26 years ago. Peter takes 5 in the dice, what makes Alan turn back after many years. Now they need to finish the game in order to all the horrible results end, but first Alan needs to find Sarah and convince her to play the spooky game again.
