I watched this when I was a little kid and had nightmares from it. I watched it again when I was a teenager and laughed the entire time. By far one of the most amusing movies I have ever seen! What made it even more hilarious was the old CGI of some of the animals. The monkeys and the spiders were a little… fake 😉

An ageless classic for the whole family

Dated, yet entertaining. While thoughts of Goonies, ET and even Home Alone (from the same era) ran through my mind as I watched this movie, there was something off. I couldn’t help but notice that Mr. Williams’ presence seemed out of place. This movie is billed as an Action/Adventure flick, but Robin, while talented, looks to be out of his element. He wasn’t being funny, he wasn’t being who we were expecting. He wasn’t his larger-than-life persona we all know and love. Maybe he was miscast or the director simply told him to “tone it down”. Maybe in doing so, there wasn’t really one character who took the proverbial “lead”. Maybe, apart from the CGI animals, it just wasn’t special?

I like this movie so much. I have watched it 100 times or more over 3 years, but I don't mind watching it again. I like Robin Williams as an actor very much. He is so funny! I am pretty sure that everyone has watched this movie because it is so old, but it is still an interesting movie and appropriate for all ages. I liked the last scene. It was so funny when Jill's parents wanted to go skiing but Sarah and Allen shout no!! I give this movie 7/10. And I recommend it for everybody.

A classic movie starring the legendary Robin WIlliams. This movie is a grand tale about a cursed board game come to life. A movie any real teen should watch, it is an amazing story that is a one-of-a kind concept. A dark fantasy, there are some parts that can be scary, but Williams' comedic efforts help to make the movie more light-hearted and fun.

Jumanji is a film about a board game called Jumanji which is no ordinary board game. It all began with a boy named Alan Parrish and a girl named Sarah Whittle who unknowingly rolled the dice and began the game of Jumanji, which unfortunately has trapped Alan Parrish in the game. 26 years later, a new family moves into the same house in which Alan lived, and two children, Judy and Peter Shepherd roll the dice in the game of Jumanji and finally, Alan is released and now a completely grown man. Together, the three must finish the game but, they are missing one player, Sarah Whittle who is now a grown woman and completely terrified to play Jumanji but, with a little convincing she agrees and the four of them do their best to survive whatever the game throws at them and finish it.  Jumanji is filled with action and moments of laughter and I personally thought that this was a great movie and I would definitely recommend watching it even though it is somewhat old, and there is also a sequel coming up with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. Overall, I would rate Jumanji 4/5.

It's moving and romantic and funny and scary and thrilling. It's JUMANJI. One of my favourite films as a child, I will always love it. It is great for everyone to watch. I highly recommend it.

It's silly, it's entertaining and it's fun to watch. Robin Williams is excellent and you also get to see the young and talented Kirsten Dunst. Good movie!
