Wow, this movie is actually decently good! I remember watching this movie when I was 4 years old and then I was absolutely terrified, I found the show extremely terrifying and was honestly super frightened throughout most of the movie. I rewatched this movie recently and realized that it is definitely not even remotely close to terrifying as I remembered from childhood. (Somehow I actually remembered most of this movie even from that long ago) In this movie the special effects aren’t great (I get that that was the best CGI to be done in that year though), and it is kinda corny but overall it is definitely decent. There are likeable characters and an interesting plot. I would recommend though that any child under about 9 probably shouldn’t watch it though.

I see the remake got a bad review. Try this version it's fantastic and what else would you expect from Robin Williams?

I liked this DVD. When young Alan Parrish discovers a mysterious board game, he doesn't realize its unimaginable powers, until he is magically transported before the eyes of his friend, Sarah, into the untamed jungles of Jumanji! 26 years later he is freed from the game's spell by two unsuspecting children, Judy and Peter. Alan reunites with Sarah and together with Judy and Peter tries to outwit the game's powerful forces in this imaginative adventure that combines breathtaking special effects with an enchanting mixture of comedy, magic and thrills.

Interesting. Good for a family movie night.

A classic 90's family movie, with just a bit of suspense and practical effects to keep viewers interested, as well as some great chemistry between Robin Williams and Bonnie Hunt.

I was expecting a magical, madcap tale, but that's not what I got. This film is surprisingly dark and un-funny. It's good for a bit of 1990's nostalgia, but perhaps not so good for family movie night.

Kids who find a mysterious jungle-themed board game get more than they bargained for when dangerous creatures from the game begin to manifest in their living room and their only hope is to keep playing. This is another one I don't know how I missed in my childhood, but watching it as an adult, I think I definitely appreciated the humor that would have gone over my head--Helen Hunt's character was hilarious! I was surprised at how creepy some of the creatures were, even though CGI has progressed a bit since this movie was made.

This was an enjoyable movie. Though the animals (especially the spiders) were a bit fake:)

If you like this, I would highly recommend Zathura (exactly the same concept done in sci-fi) and the new Jumanji movie, which changes the boardgame to a virtual reality video game but is not intended to be a remake ... it's a lot funnier and presents similarly-wholesome messages.
