When I was a kid I watched Jumanji over and over again. My love for animals and Robin Williams was a perfect combo to make this one of my favorites growing up. I was really bothered they were making another movie - I felt it was in bad taste, especially with his death to try and go in and add to a movie that was already amazing.

I’m really happy they weren’t making this a “sequel”, basically, a dad finds Jumanji on a beach and brings it to his son. His son, Alex, is only interested in video games - Jumanji magically turns into a video game and he gets sucked into playing it. Years later the game is found by four kids who are in detention, they play the game and also get sucked in. When they choose characters they become them in the game. It’s absolutely hilarious and I was laughing through the whole movie.

It was really nice to see Jack Black, I’ve been missing him and he was definitely the funniest character. Also, the Rock...I mean - I don’t really need to say anything else about that.

This is a great movie to take your kids to, it was very entertaining, tons of action and jokes! Your kids will love it.
