Storyline

A New York commodities broker who was married several years ago has been separated from his wife. Now he wants to marry his new girlfriend, so he has to divorce her first. So he goes to Venezuela, and is brought deep into the jungle and told that when they separated she was pregnant and chose not to tell him since he stated he was not really interested in becoming a father. Today, the boy has reached the age where he has to go on a quest, in New York, so his father reluctantly brings him along, and a culture clash follows. The boy has spent all of his life with the tribe he grew up with, and his father has a bit of problem so he can't spent as much as time with his son as his son likes. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

In addition to relocating from Paris to New York, the character Mimi-Siku was made much older than the preteen in the French version. This was largely due to Americans' general discomfort with young love, under the explanation that "a teenager can get into more trouble." Additionally, despite American Mimi-Siku's having lived in the wild, there's less difference in the skin tones of the two male leads than in the original French film. This was done to emphasize their kinship. See more »

Goofs

In the scene with the fish tank, the mother of the household refers to one of the fish as a "Poecilia latipinna" from the Amazon. Mimi-Siku agrees with her and even gives its native name. However, Poecilia latipinna, commonly known as the Sailfin Molly, actually comes from North Carolina down to Texas and the Yucatan Peninsula. Also, the fish in the tank are in fact Rift Valley cichlids from Africa. See more »

Bad Bad Bad
1 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I sincerely apologize to all you who liked the film.

Jungle 2 Jungle brings badness to new heights. It is cringe inducing at all times. We continued watching it simply because we could not comprehend how anything could be so bad. Like a train wreck, we watched in horror unable to look away.

Was it better back in the 90s? I sure hope so.

The saddest part is that I like all those actors normally but that did not help. How this did not get a nod at the razzies I'll never know.

We cannot in good conscience recommend this movie. It could cause a loss of respect for Tim Allen and Martin Short.
