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 »

Quotes

[Richard, Michael and Mimi exit Jovanovic's office]
Michael Cromwell: Richard, are you out of your mind? Now we're laundering money for the Russian mafia?
Richard Kempster: Yes, we are, and we'll iron it for them too.

A funny, family-friendly film
28 April 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

A remake of the French hit, "Little Indian - Big City", "Jungle 2 Jungle" rises above the slap stick of the French original and the usual shallow Disney live action to become an enjoyable, funny and often heart-warming story, as much to do with father/son relationships as with a fish out of water. Although Tim Allen and Martin Short are their usual good selves here, Sam Huntington is the real star. An amazing young talent, he makes "Mimi-Siku" believable and endearing, someone we relate to and care about. It's Sam's performance that really lifts the film and makes it worthwhile to children and adults alike.
