A Pleasantly surprising, fun movie. A little draggy in parts but I enjoyed this far better than the original.

A modernized version of the 1995 Jumanji with fewer and less terrorizing animals on the loose. Characters chose their avatars and are pulled into the game. The contrary avatars are a delight fueling lots of the comic situations and humor. An adventure for sure; a coming of age movie; how we can change our characters and grow. Good fun. A good movie all around.

The problem is that while trying to craft something for your typical 13-year-old's enjoyment, the new Jumanji writing team dumbed things down, and sexed things up, a little too much... Add in a lot more foul language than you might expect in a movie built for the kids, and you've got a fantasy actioner that's much less, uh, fantastic than it could have been.

I was expecting a horrible film, but what I got was a passable, fun popcorn movie. The cast blended nicely together, but of course Karen Gillan steals the show. She's funny, awkward, and quite amazing in the fight sequences. She should do more physical comedies because she's amazing at it. Now, it's not great and there are issues in the story, like the kids we don't care about at all. Maybe better casting or better writing establishing the kids in the beginning would help a lot.

Funny in a juvenile way, but still funny. Casting Jack Black as a high school "mean girl" was brilliant. The Johnson-Hart combo was not as effective as in Central Intelligence.

This was a lot of fun! It has a pretty predictable plot and probably won't be a long time "classic" like the original, but it was a good romp and definitely worth a look.

I was thinking this was a reboot but its more of a continuation of the original although there are references to the original. Still, this is a funny, action-packed thrill-ride and it looks like the actors, Kevin, Jack, Dwayne and Karen all had fun making it especially when they self-parody themselves. Since the "players" are all high-schoolers, I thought it was going to be a silly teen rom-com but I was delightfully wrong. When you want to see a fun summer movie, pull out this DVD.

This sequel works just as well without its Jumanji root, not that I remembered much about the 1995 Robin William original. Unexpected perspectives on the nature/nurture and genes/looks betray our goals/personalities, and to ponder/quote “Who you are... in this moment in time, and who you want to be. You get one life. You decide how you're gonna spend it.” Good for all ages.

Many quotes in IMDb already including my favorites when too-pretty Bethany needed help to pee first time as Professor Shelly Oberon. Below are the few more serious quotes on choosing one’s life that are not in IMDb:

We don't have a lot of time in this life, and I personally don't wanna waste it on being, like, a gym teacher.
===
You're all here for a reason. You know what it is. But this is what you should be thinking about: Who you are... in this moment in time, and who you want to be. You get one life. You decide how you're gonna spend it.
===
It's a lot easier to be brave when you have lives to spare. It's a lot harder... when you only have one life.
-We-we always only have one life, man. Okay? That's... That's all we get. That's how it works.
The question is, is how are you gonna live it? Which guy are you gonna decide to be?… Did I just quote our principal?
