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 ...

Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

Great Cast! Great Fun!
25 March 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This movie is extremely well done, from start to finish! Gary Busey is absolutely wonderful in his role of The Hooded Fang, and young Max Morrow delivers what is, probably one of the very best performances ever for a child at that age in his role of Jacob Two Two!

This movie was very well written and directed, making it interesting and very amusing to both children and adults. The songs are very entertaining and original and fit the plot nicely.

In order to enjoy this movie, one must first take it for what it is: a fantasy, rather than to compare its plot to the real world, which might allow those who have no sense of humor or fantasy to read into it something dark or dreadful. A child's nightmare in a fantasy story is not meant to be interpreted as being the 11 o'clock news, and the songs that were expertly written to support this movie's plot were not supposed to be "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". Everyone who has an imagination and is not too old to smile or laugh at things that are meant to be silly, will appreciate this movie for what it was meant to be, and for what it turned out to be: a lot of fun... a lot of fun!
