Movie Info

Jumanji is a visually elaborate fantasy about an enchanted board game that opens a magical portal to a jungle universe. Two young children, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), discover the game in an abandoned home and suddenly are greeted by Alan (Robin Williams), an adult who has spent his life trapped inside the game since playing it at age 12. Alan's only hope for freedom involves finishing the game, but this proves rather dangerous, as Judy, Peter, and Alan find themselves

A gloomy special-effects extravaganza filled with grotesque images, generating fear and despair.

Some thrills, but may be too much for little ones.

Like the rest of Johnston's oeuvre, Jumanji puts vivid characters through paces that will quicken any child's pulse.

This smart, scary film, is still a favorite to dust off and take from the "vhs" bin

All the effects in the world can't disguise the thin plot.

Great special effects and exciting adventure stuff. A bit of a slow buildup and unnecessarily dead parents.

July 14, 2003

Unsatisfied with just being cute, this sucker wound up being both fun and clever.

May 5, 2003

A visually impressive and exhilarating adventure that keeps the suspense, thrills and comedy running high through the surprising end and supplies interesting characters with moving plights that keep the audience rooting.

Take away the CGI mayhem and what emerges is a rather touching tale of second chances and innocence prematurely lost.

Everyone is good here, with Williams taking on the unusual persona of straightman much of the way.

Audience Reviews for Jumanji

Once again, I'm in last person to see territory. In all fairness I don't nostalgia would ever have been on its side, I wasn't into this kind of film back in 1995 and I'm still not. It hasn't aged that well and I'm not sure it was ever that good in the first place.

Probably the one movie every kid in the 90's had or wanted to see.

"Jumanji has always been one of those films that are just a lot of mindless fun to watch. I have watched this movie more times then I would like to admit. But it is one of my favorites from my childhood. But I still love it as much as an adult then I did as a kid. Robin Williams will always be a huge favorite of mine. Bonnie Hunt is funny and I miss her in movies. The movie is great for all ages to enjoy. So if you get a chance, see it with your kids, or see it by yourself. Either way you can't come from this movie not liking it. I'll probably see it at least a dozen more times before the year is over with lol."

Surprising winner here which hits all the targets really well, its fun, exciting, well acted and looks good. Surprising because I recall this coming out and the trailer looked pretty dumb really, lots of CGI and not much else really, the effects were pretty special back then, I guess that was the hook. But blow me there was actually a really good story in there too.

There's an original fantasy or dream like quality in this that you only found in Disney classics of yester years but its captured so well here, a modern 'Bedknobs n Broomsticks' if you will. All the cast are likeable and the jungle aspect really works well, you never see it, just hinted at which is just right, teasing you but not going overboard.

The backstory and ending of the film are really well done too, could of gone on with more 'plays' from the game as there has obviously been previous adventures, but its open ended and adds mystery to the whole idea.

Quite a modern kids classic really with solid work from the crazy and youthful Williams who adds nice emotion to some scenes, he is a good kids film actor.

    1. Alan Parrish: Jumanji. A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token. Doubles gets another turn. And the first player to reach the end wins.
