Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Based on the children's book by Chris Van Allsburg, Jumanji stars Robin Williams as a man who escapes his confinement within a devilish board game, only to be followed by all kinds of exotic problems: elephants, lions, zebras, monkeys, floods, giant insects, killer plants, and a big-game hunter. The computer-generated effects all wreak havoc through quiet streets, and while most of this is pretty fun, relationship conflicts and character development are weak and forgettable. The high point, in comic terms, is probably David Alan Grier's hilarious performance as a cop catching the worst of these various plagues--one at a time. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, Dolby sound, optional French and Spanish soundtracks, optional Spanish and Korean subtitles.--Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Lock away your worries and become a kid again Jan. 25 2004
By Meesha
Format:DVD
This is one of the seemingly rare films that you can watch as a kid, and then watch as an adult, and don't hate it because, cos it seems "childish" now. It's like the Narnia stories by C.S. Lewis, I can read those as an adult, be transported to when I was a kid, and not understanding the religious undertones, to reading it as an adult, and understanding them.
I love Robin Williams films. He's one of the best older actors around at the moment, although one of my all-time fave films will be Miss Doubtfire. You get his full range of voices, and funny characteristics in that film. In Jumanji, he's more serious, but in the extras, he's back to his Miss Doubtfire funniness. There's one particularly line, while they're filming the earthquake sequence, and Robin Williams is hanging onto Bonnie Hunt for dear life. In the extras, you actually see he's standing on a plank of wood. Then you see this guy sawing away at something, and Robin goes "That can't be good". It's just the way he comes out with these things!
Of all the special effects in this movie, the monkeys are the best - sorry, the lion isn't a patch on Aslan. They are so hilarious, whether they're in the kitchen (the monkey switching on the cooker, and nearly getting his a** burnt!), or on the motorbike (monkey with massive helmet on!)
The extras are kinda disappointing for a collectors edition. There are a few good documentaries, but they show a lot of the same clips over and over. Some of it is interesting, and you see some of the storyboards for the stampede, earthquake, and bats. Seeing storyboards are quite interesting, although the drawings of the animals does get kind of tedious flicking through them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rumble from the Jungle Dec 14 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Alan Parrish (Robin Williams) discovers a strange and exciting looking game, at a construction site, and takes it home to play, he unleashes a storm of wild animals and other weird and wonderful creatures form the jungle, and disappears.
30 years later, two children (Kirsten Dunst and Bradley Pierce) who have just lost their parents move with their aunt, to the same old house, where Alan Parrish lived.
They find this strange game in the attic, and begin to play it, unleashing, lions, zebras, monkeys, crocodiles, floods, giant insects, killer plants, bats and an insane hunter-adventurer from the 19th century, as well as all sorts of other dangers from the jungle.
They only start to find a solution to the Pandora's box of dangers they have released, when they release Alan Parrish himself, now grown up and a wild jungle man, from the jungle.
David Alan Grier plays the police man who is roped into the wild adventure, against his own wishes, (and not sure if he hasn't gone insane). Kirsten Dunst shines in her role , showing what a lovely, talented young actress she is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jumanji is fun! Dec 2 2003
Format:DVD
What a great movie and a clever concept! A board game that sucks you into it, and must be finished by the originals who played the game. I remember seeing Jumanji in the movie theatre when it first came out, and this past weekend had the opportunity to rewatch it (thank you resale DVDs!)
Starring Robin Williams and Bonnie Hunt, the action is fast paced and easy to follow. No swearing in this movie makes it appropriate for all ages, though little ones might be frightened by the rampaging animals. There is nothing Disneylike in their qualities.
Still, the story of sticking together and teamwork prevail throughout the entire film. Bebe Neuwirth and David Alan Greier are great in their supporting roles. Bonnie Hunt gets some of the best lines in the film with regards to cheating and a downtown sale. An early Kirstin Dunst is also great.
If you have never seen Jumanji, I encourage you check it out. It's fun and you always wonder what the game is going to come up with next.

In Jumanji, 13 year-old Alan Parrish has difficulty communicating with his domineering father. During an intense argument, Alan shouts at his departing father, "I'm never going to talk to you again" and then prepares to run away. He is interrupted by Sarah, a classmate. The two begin to play a strange board game which Alan had unearthed earlier that afternoon at a construction site. Weird and scary things pop out of the game with each roll of the dice. Alan's piece lands on a space which reads "in the jungle you must wait until someone rolls a 5 or 8" and Alan is sucked into the board while Sarah hysterically runs away. Some twenty-five years later, two children find the board game in the attic of their new home. They begin to play and proceed to release monkeys, killer mosquitoes and a lion with each roll of the dice. Eventually, one child rolls a 5 and releases the now-grown Alan Parrish (whom everyone in town assumes was murdered). In order to put everything back the way it was and save their town from destruction, Alan finds Sarah and the foursome struggle to play the game through to completion, wreaking further havoc with each roll.
The film is superbly cast and well-acted. The story is engrossing and, occasionally, is touching and humorous. Viewers should be aware that this is a horror film. It is very frightening. It is fine for adults, teenagers and older children. For parents like myself who are familiar with the Chris Van Allsburg picture book of the same name, I must warn you that this film isn't really appropriate for the 4 - 8 year-olds that love the book.
