Quotes

[the rules of Jumanji]
Alan Parrish, 1969: [reads] Jumanji: a game for those who wish to find / a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token, doubles get another turn, and the first one to reach the end wins.
Judy Shepherd: [reads] Adventurers beware: do not start until you intend to finish. The exciting consequences of the game / will vanish only when a player has reached Jumanji and called out its name.

Not for those who have spent more time watching Star Wars than at the library.
31 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

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.
