From Library Staff

This movie is hilarious and action packed. It will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillian, and Jack Black are so funny. I have a lot of favorite moments in this movie. Perfect for the entire family.

I enjoyed this remake more than the original. Great cast. It's refreshing to find a movie with a happy ending now days.

Jumanji is a very entertaining action-comedy. With a skilled cast, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillian, it's impossible not to like it at all. The special effects were quite well done. This movie touches on bullying, friendship, and team work. I would recommend it for 11 year olds and up, but there is a reason why it's a PG-13. The cuss words are one part and the make out between two of the characters is deep but nothing 10 year old's haven't seen. A great movie to watch with friends and family.

After watching this 2018 DVD movie: JUMANJI, Welcome to the Jungle (I did not think it was very entertaining).
It is just a remake of the original 1995 JUMANJI movie, starring Robin Williams & Kirsten Dunst.
In the 2018 Jumanji DVD movie starring Dwayne Johnson & Karen Gillan, the storytelling is totally messed up. It does not relate to any portion of the original 1995 movie and I LOST INTEREST in "jumanji-Welcome to the Jungle", VERY EARLY. I just watched entire movie, to see what ending would be and I was very disappointed.
In the original movie, the actors/actresses changed into creatures they evolved in world of JUMANJI (which I enjoyed, WHICH WAS A FAMILY ADVENTURE type of movie). But, the 2018 jumanji version, dwayne johnson, kevin hart and jack black, just makes jokes - the visual effects/special effects are so ridiculous (WHICH NOW CHANGED TO COMEDY ACTION type of movie).
The original 1995 jumanji BOARD game had some meaning. BUT, the 2018 movie version jumanji COMPUTER game, was just stupid.
I recalled other Library Account Users, view this 2018 JUMANJI DVD WITH ABOVE-AVERAGE

The best movie in a long time. I loved the first "Jumanji" movie, but this one is so good and fun. I laughed through the whole movie because the characters are so good at acting as teenagers trapped inside grown-up bodies. My favorite character is Bethany. Jack Black is amazing at teenage girl stuff. A must watch!

I can't believe I'm writing a review of 'Jumangi: Welcome to the Jungle'... let alone a positive review! But, I really enjoyed it. I even shed a tear toward the end. I think this would be a great movie for kids and teenagers to watch since it touches on topics like bullying, in-group/out-group, and what really is the basis for attraction and affection. But, I also recommend it to adults. I'm 60 and watched it alone and am now ordering the sequel. I'm sure I must have seen the original since I was always a huge Robin Williams fan. However, I can't imagine the original could have been too much better than this re-make.

A newer version of the original Jumanji film here. Some parts were quite humourous, especially when they all got transported to the Jumanji world filled with wildlife and trees. Their personalities and abilities are extremely different than reality.

However, some scenes could be confusing/misleading to some viewers, in that they could leave you wondering for a long time (some without answers or did not connect well) and some unexplained/unexpected phenomenons. Overall, it was an all right movie with excellent, talented actors: Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson!!!

GREAT MOVIE! An interesting second chapter in the Jumanji story. Last time, parts of Jumanji came to out world, this time, we follow the players into the Jumanji world. Jack Black is fantastic! He portrays a teen aged popular girl who becomes a middle aged over weight professor. I laughed out loud when he said he should be Instagramming his first peeing experience with a penis. I also liked that each character had their own strengths and weaknesses.

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?
