At the end of the movie, the kids lock up Jumanji and throw it into the river. Jumanji was later found with no locks on it at all. However, the kids threw the game into the river in the year 1969. Presumably the final scene on the beach is set in the year 1995 as the previous "Christmas party" scene would indicate. It is entirely possible over the 26-year span ('69-'95) that the game had been found and played by others who didn't lock it up. See more »
Do you know what happened to this shoe factory?
Shoe Factory Bum:
Yeah, it folded up, like everything else in this town. It's pretty cold out there. How about some coffee?

There is only one way to describe Jumanji: excellent. The plot is very, original, with outstanding concepts packed into each individual scene. After viewing this movie, the wild side of the jungle gets into you, making you want to dare to play the game. Although the computer animation may not look all that real, I still give this movie a 10/10, for an outstanding plot, casting, and spirit, which any great movie has.
