Product Description

America's favorite entertainer, Tim Allen, is at it again as commodities broker Michael Cromwell, king of the Wall Street jungle. With money, power, and an engagement to a beautiful fashion designer, he has it all. But when Michael travels to the Amazon to finalize the divorce from his first wife -- a jungle doctor -- she reveals that he also has a blowdart-shooting, giant-spider-carrying, 13-year-old son, Mimi-Siku. Cultures clash when Mimi is entrusted by his tribal chief to bring back fire from the Statue of Liberty. Back home in New York, Michael must somehow convince Mimi that pets are not for eating and it's not nice to chase people with your killer spider. But when Michael's partner (Martin Short) crosses a Russian mob boss in a coffee bean deal, Mimi and Michael must use all their jungle skills in a hysterical father/son rescue. Now you can bring home the hilarious new hit comedy adventure from the studio that brought you HOME IMPROVEMENT and the box office smash THE SANTA CLAUSE.|Successful commodities trader Michael Cromwell is engaged to marry Charlotte, but first he must finalize his divorce from his estranged wife, Dr. Patricia Cromwell. Leaving everything behind, Michael travels deep into the Amazon jungle where Patricia has been living since she left him, and gets the surprise of his life when he discovers that he has a 13-year-old son, Mimi-Siku who has been raised among tribesmen. When Michael inadvertently agrees to bring Mimi to visit his own jungle -- New York City, cultures collide and the boy wreaks havoc on his father's life. For the jungle setting, the film's producers selected a remote area near Canaima, Venezuela, experiencing all sorts of problems trying to make a film in a rain forest. In New York, sequences were filmed throughout the city and in suburban Pound Ridge and the Playland amusement park in Rye.|For young Sam Huntington, the most memorable aspect of filming in the jungles of Venezuela was his opportunity to act with Myteka, a Goliath bird-eating spider. Every precaution was taken to safeguard the actor, including capping the spider's fangs so it couldn't bite.|The movie is a remake of the 1994 French film UN INDIEN DANS LA VILLE, better known in the U.S. as LITTLE INDIAN, BIG CITY.|A remote tropical setting was needed for filming. The search for the ideal rain forest location involved covering 20,000 miles over 15 days of searching, from Brazil to Costa Rica and Jamaica before the filmmakers decided on Canaima, Venezuela.

Michael Cromwell (Tim Allen) is an executive who is planning on getting married real soon. But in order to get married he has to travel to the Amazon and find his wife (JoBeth Williams) and let her sign the divorce papers. When he travels to the Amazon and finds his wife, Michael finds out that he has a son. His son, Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington) is a little bit different since he has been in the Amazon all his life. Mimi-Siku does such things as eat lizard guts and shoot flies with great skill. Michael promises Mimi-Siku to take him to New York when he becomes a man, but Michael doesn't know that on that island, his son will be a man in a matter of minutes. Now it's time to see how his son from the Amazon will do in the United States.
"Jungle 2 Jungle" isn't one of the best movies ever made, but it is pretty good. It has a good story and decent acting, but what makes it good is that it's hilarious. One of the funniest parts is when a huge tarantula chases Tim Allen around the beach. Scattered parts of the movie are hilarious, but it also has its serious parts along with the hilarious outbursts. I recommend anybody who likes good comedy movies to get "Jungle 2 Jungle."

Comedians Tim Allen & Martin Short along with newcomer Sam Huntington star in the hilarious Disney re-make of 'Little Indian, Big City.' In this version Allen portrays workoholic Michael Cromwell, a business minded man who travels to the Amazon in order to have the last divorce papers signed by his ex-wife, Patrica. Patrica left Michael 13 years ago pregnant with their son & unluckily for Michael his trip to the rain forest also scores him a meeting with his now 13 year old son, Mimi Siku (Huntington.)
Michael is forced to take Mimi to his home, in New York, in order for Mimi to complete a task given to him by the tribal leader. The task being to bring back fire from the Statue of Liberty. But Michael has to much of a busy schedule, in spending time with his fashion designer fiancee, planning the wedding, & finding a buyer for 5 tons of coffee beans, to spend time with Mimi. But Mimi's jungle instincts make it hard to keep him cooped up.
Also starring future teen idol LeeLee Sobieski, Jobeth Williams, Valerie Mahaffey, & Lolite Davidovich. This film is great when you need cheering up.

If you are a young child you will love this movie. If you are an 18 year old like me you will get the adult jokes. This movie was mad to show you how different peoples lives can be. I loved this movie because it had a little romance a little action and a guy in a loincloth. Ok ok ok so that is the only weird part but it is still a good movie. Sam Huntington is a good actor and her should be reconized. Tim Allen was very funny and so was Martin Short. The story is good for children and for adults. The reason I titled this sit by yourself is because I am 18 and none of my friends want to watch it. I love it.

Jungle to Jungle is a modern version of Little Indian Big City. (see my review). Although this film is funnier, better acted(Tim Allen rocks!), and more entertaining, I didn't feel the boy(Sam Hungington) that played Mimi was born in the jungle at all. Don't get me wrong, he is a wonderful actor and the girls will love his bod, although he did a great job he didn't come across on film as believable. In Little Indian Big City the boy was believable. Sam Huntington spoke as well as a Harvard lawyer and jungle boys don't speak that well since they told us straight out that he couldn't read.
This film takes place in New York City. Little Indian Big City takes place in Paris. Mimi climbs the Statue of Liberty, pins the neighbors pigeon against the wall, cooks his dad's friends prize fish and yes, gets the girl.
The weird thing about this film I think: A half naked boy walks down the street in New York and nothin happens to him? Unbelievable.
I liked the film because of Tim Allen and Sam Huntington. Allen is funny and Huntington is, well.. see the film. You will like it.

"Jungle 2 Jungle" is a highly underrated comedy starring Tim Allen. It's a feel good family film and it's also very funny.
Disney's DVD treatment of this personal favorite is a huge disappointment though. For starters, the packaging says "1.33:1 Fullscreen." Well, it's NOT. It's actually in 1.85:1 widescreen...which would be GREAT, but it's non-anamorphic. (Disney seems to be the ONLY studio still putting out non-enhanced letterbox transfers). The packaging also lists the wrong running time, and the film seems to have been put on two layers but still occupy under 5 GB.
The video transfer could be better, but it's the audio portion that loses serious points. You see, even though this film was released in theaters with a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track, the DVD only contains a Dolby 2.0 Surround audio track. Most unfortunate, as the film has a very nice 5.1 Dolby Digital track on the anamorphic-but-PAL Region 4 (Australia) DVD, even the laserdisc did.
And of course most troubling is the lack of extra features. While I would have been shocked at a Tim Allen/John Pasquin commentary, including the very cool trailer wouldn't have killed them. Nope, not even a trailer is here to be found, and there is some really good making-of material available on this film - location footage, interviews with the cast and crew, B-Roll Footage. Disney included it on their CD-ROM presskit, but nothing is here on the DVD.
Very unfortunate that I waited nearly six years for this to come to DVD, and this is the best Disney could do. If it wasn't such an enjoyable film, it'd have gotten even less points. But, at least it's widescreen, despite the packaging and Disney's site info. Shame that they couldn't have put even a little bit of effort into making this DVD nice.
