My opinion on Jungle 2 Jungle is not as harsh, the movie was cute. Thefact that it was a remake isn't my complaint because it is really hardto find movies that haven't been remade from other foreign oralternative films. I give movies at least one chance. Tim Allen is, asusual, comedic while being a bit on the crazy side, but still funny inall the ways you would want him to be, if you like him. You are alsointroduced to Leelee Sobieski in her feature film debut (she had beenin TV movies, but not really big movies till Jungle 2 Jungle came out).The movie in general is a great family flick, one that everyone canenjoy. I believe that is should be given at least one chance, so go outand rent this fun movie.

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.
Michael Cromwell is a successful New York stockbroker looking forwardto his marriage to a successful fashion model. However before he can dothis he must finalise the divorce from his wife, who left him about 12years ago. Unfortunately she lives on a tropical island off the coastof Brazil and he finds himself stuck on the island with her. If thatwasn't bad enough he learns that the pale, 12 year old member of hertribe (Mimi-Siku) is actually his son. In order to avoid looking at themorality of her not telling him about this life, the story thenrequires Mimi-Siku to go to New York for reasons too boring to explainand "laughter" ensues and Michael learns some lessons that we all sawcoming from a mile off.
It is rare for me not even to have the energy to type a decent plotsummary for a film but for this one I make an exception. Part of theproblem is the fact that the plot manages to be embarrassinglypredictable from start to finish and provides nothing of value alongthe way. This is only made worse by the lack of laughs and the regularscenes of Mimi-Siku failing to fit in, one of the most embarrassing ofwhich sees him dancing with his father on the street. It is a string ofobvious scenarios all run together just as you'd expect and there isnothing of any interest developed along the way. There are plenty of"wild fish out of water in big city" films already kicking around andthis offers no reason to add this to the list of the ones you've seen.
The cast are equally lost in the midst of all this stuff and resort tomugging and overplaying at every opportunity. Obviously Allen was goingto do this anyway since this is what most of his films tend to be like.Martin Short does the same here and at least gets one, maybe two laughsas a result which is more than Allen. The clearly well-off and whiteHuntington is hilariously poor as the boy of the film, he doesn'tconvince in any part of the film and is a big part of it beingembarrassing. The rest of the cast have little to do and even a turnfrom Stiers adds no value.
Overall a roundly poor film that takes the "wild fish out of water incity" genre, ticks as many boxes as it can, writes lots of predictableand weak scenarios and places them all within a story that is so poorlydeveloped that you pretty much know where it is going from the verystart. No laughs and no interest it might work as noisy nonsense todistract children but it has no value past that.
