This movie is solid fun. It's typical Tim Allen, which means that if youlike him you should enjoy the movie. He employs lots of quick wit,sarcasm,and slapstick self-deprivation. The son does a mostly believable job withthe typical fish out of water story. He climbs out on the ledge of aManhattan skyscraper and also climbs to the top of the statue of libertytosee the "fire up the sky's butt". The supporting cast puts in workmanquality acting as well. The real mom (JoBeth Williams) is believable as apost 60's Peace Corp leftover and villain played by David Ogden Stiers(M*A*S*H) is terrific as a scary and quirky Russian mafia boss. It is adown the middle Disney pre-teen movie and fun.

It would be a natural assumption that since Tim Allen is the main characterin this movie, and that since this movie IS supposed to be a comedy, thatsome of Tim Allen's lines would have at least some humorous content to them. About 90% of his lines were flat and were spoken like they were SUPPOSED tobe funny, but just weren't.As for the rest of the movie, why is it that since someone is raised in thejungle, they are complete idiots? His son could speak two languages, seemedrather intelligent, and yet, he'd kill someone elses fish and eat them,steal catfood from the cat and eat it, and do other stupid things thatsomeone with common sense wouldn't do. The things he did were moreembarrasingly stupid then funny and just didn't create all that manylaughs.Now if we want to look at the point of view of the movie being meaningful asfar as a father/son relationship...well...ok, a big time, job oriented guywith a hot new girlfriend finds out he has a son (with his devorced wife,who is of course, really cool) and the two don't get along until then end,when they suddenly do. Like we haven't seen that storybefore.All in all, just not all that well done. I think the idea could have workedbut it was just a poor choice of a final script.Rent if you're bored, it'll entertain you, just don't expect anything allthat good.
A remake of the French hit, "Little Indian - Big City", "Jungle 2 Jungle"rises above the slap stick of the French original and the usual shallowDisney live action to become an enjoyable, funny and often heart-warmingstory, as much to do with father/son relationships as with a fish out ofwater. Although Tim Allen and Martin Short are their usual good selveshere, Sam Huntington is the real star. An amazing young talent, he makes"Mimi-Siku" believable and endearing, someone we relate to and care about.It's Sam's performance that really lifts the film and makes it worthwhile tochildren and adults alike.
