Now if only it was even slightly better than those examples of Hollywood at its laziest.

This very Disney treatment of the classic fish out of water story ought to satisfy its intended audiences: kids and the parents who must accompany them.

Gently humorous and moving.

Roughly half of Tim Allen's latest comedy is hilarious-stupid, and the rest is monotonous-stupid.

Simple truths are often the most effective, but in this instance they are only banal and mildly amusing.

Typically for Disney, the villains aren't made of very stern stuff, nor indeed is fey spear-carrying Mimi-Siku.

A fairly awful Tim Allen comedy.

If you care at all about surface plausibility, adults who act like adults, or emotions that exist anywhere other than in manipulative movies, spare yourself and spare your family.
| Original Score: 2/4

It's a good cast. The movie uses the physical comedy talents of Short and Allen to good advantage.

You'd think someone would have figured out by now that putting a big TV star in a lame movie doesn't make the movie any better.

The film is well-paced and warm-hearted, with uniform chuckles.

If it didn't work the first time, what makes you think it will work the second?

Huntington is wonderful at conveying Mimi's combination of naivete and intelligence, and Allen is a marvel.

Jungle 2 Jungle still finds time to appreciate Mr. Allen's easy way with a child actor, an audience or a heavily tranquilized pet cat.

I for one am sick and tired of the unappealingly unoriginal fare that Disney releases on a constant basis.

No one is allowed to think in this movie. Not one single event in the entire plot can possibly take place unless every character in the cast has brains made of Bac-o-Bits.
