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).

Play the game, Sarah.
Oh, no, no, no.
All right. Just give me the dice, and you can go home. You don't have to play.
Oh, thank you.
[Sarah gives Alan the dice but moves his hand making Sarah roll as Alan laughs for fun]
Oh, my god! How could you do that?
It's the law of the jungle, Sarah. You'll get used to it.
And I think of all the energy, I spent visualizing you as a radiant spirit.

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 »
Not for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library.
The hauntingly beautiful illustrations of the children's book are animated in this unique adventure for the entire family. Artistic at each turn this movie is probably not meant for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library. At least one reviewer could not understand why the computer images were not as "realistic" as in other computer generated animated films. That would be like asking why Roger Rabbit does not look like a real rabbit. They are not supposed to be real. The characters of Jumanji have literally popped out of the children's illustrations full of life and imagination. Similar to Roger Rabbit it meshes two different worlds together. Have fun. Read the book. Watch the movie. Play the game.
