Storyline

In a brand-new Jumanji adventure, four high-school kids discover an old video-game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji--you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they must go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves --or they'll be stuck in the game forever, to be played by others without break. Written by Sony Pictures

Trivia

Ruby Roundhouse's outfit was influenced by that of Lara Croft, the protagonist of the Tomb Raider video games and movies. Martha comments on how impractical the outfit is to wear in the jungle. See more »

Goofs

A lot of the film is rendered meaningless when you consider that the protagonists could not have had free will. Many of their actions correspond so exactly with what the game wants them to do that none of it can be coincidence, especially in the last action sequence. See more »

Quotes

Martha: [sarcasm] Are you gonna help, or are you too pretty?
Bethany: [serious] I'm too pretty.

Fun, Silly Twist on the Original. Watch with Your Kids
4 November 2019 | by mikayakatntSee all my reviews

This is such a dumb movie but honestly that's what makes it so great. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a fun movie that doesn't take itself seriously and it shows. Of course it's a twist on the original Jumanji movie that will never capture the same magic. But for everyone expecting it to be a giant flop, it ends up being pretty fun.

3.5/5. Above expectations.
