At the shoe factory in 1995, when Alan runs to his Father's old office, the writing on the door reads, "SAM PARISH PRESIDENT" and another identical door reading "SALES" is seen on the wall opposite to this door in the background. 20 seconds later when Peter and Judy Shepherd comes in to the room, the door of the room reads "SALES". Which means the they had actually entered the wrong room which was opposite to Sam Parrish's old Office. See more »
Bats aren't what I worry about in this house anyway.
What would you worry about?
Well, personally, I wouldn't want to live in a house where someone was murdered.
Yep, little Alan Parrish. I'd say his father did it. There's 1,001 places he could've hid the body in this house - especially if he chopped it up first.

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.
