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 running for their lives from huge rhinoceroses, evil monkeys, vicious lions, and other terrifying jungle beasts. Director Joe Johnston, whose special-effects background previously came to good use in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, used groundbreaking computer imagery to simulate the thrills.

order from one person and they find it from another, not knowing what shape it's in but goes by what that seller said. Found movie in pour shape and sun faded and cracked, and wasn't rewound Crushed box it was in as sun dried out the box. Very upset as I normally rate things high.

I wonder why Jonathan Hyde is not mentioned? He played two parts: (1) the father of the two children, and (2) the Great White Hunter. He was quite brilliant and easily the best actor in the film.

This is an action movie, not the Bruce-Willis-action kind, but action packed for sure. Robin Williams is always wonderful, and the 2 kids in it are good actors too, although I'd say this movie is not for really little kids, as it can be kind of scary for them. Not just a movie for kids, my husband and I really like this movie, or anything with Robin Williams for that matter. Awesome special effects.

I agree, great movie, not so sure it's the best FAMILY film ever... Kind of scary for my 4 year old, would not let her watch it alone, that's for sure...

I think that this movie should be watched by the whole family especially the acting done by Robin Williams . He was amazing so I was told by a certain person that I know but I won't mention any names because the person told me not to mention her name .

Jumanji was by far the best movie in the world if you want action apon action. It is filled with all sort of animals and great adventures that the kids and two adults have. This is by far the best movie ever so go rent it today.
