Storyline

One day, a boy named Jacob Two-Two (aptly named because every phrase that he utters is repeated) decides to set out to prove himself to his parents that he can do things, so his father, who is tired of hearing his wife order him to do the shopping, sets Jacob out to buy two tomatoes. As Jacob makes his way to buy them, the greengrocer in the shop keeps telling an officer that Jacob was threatening him, so Jacob escapes, but only just, hitting his head rather hard and awaking in court where he is sentenced to two years, two months, two weeks, two days, two hours, two minutes, and five seconds to a children's prison run by not only a mad wrestler presumed lost, but also two (also aptly named) bird-like and fish-like cohorts as well as slimy humanoids that spray resisters with slime to stop them in their tracks. Helping Jacob in his mission are two young agents that aim to free all of the children kept prisoner in the swampy penitentiary. It is up to Jacob Two-Two to escape this heinous ...

Trivia

In the original Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang (1978), the character of Shapiro had the alter ego of Emma and was played by Marfa Richler. In the 1999 version, Shapiro's alter ego is actually named Marfa (played by Alison Pill this time around). See more »

Goofs

The character of Shapiro is supposed to have the alter ego of Emma Richler, not Marfa. This possibility was done to avoid confusion on set, combining Emma and Marfa, so Emma Bambrick wouldn't get confused when her name was stated. See more »

Quotes

One of the best kids films I've seen...
2 December 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

You will either love this film or hate it. I love it. It is rare today to find a kids film that doesn't adhere to Hollywood commercialism and that has a fantastic story line that appeals to all ages. In order to appreciate this movie, you must place yourself in the mind of a 6-year-old boy who sees the world in a wonderfully creative manner. The original book that this movie is based on by Mordecai Richler has complex themes and intricate messages that I think were all portrayed beautifully in this film. The acting and singing is fantastic and very much like a Broadway musical (which is rare in films). Also, Gary Busey and Miranda Richardson were phenomenal in their roles. The first time I watched this film, I missed most of the small twists that characterize the story, but after watching it again, I was astonished at how deep the story was. My daughter and I have seen this film about half a dozen times and it has never turned tiring - it is definitely a film I am glad to have on my shelf and will be watching again in the future!
