Movie Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I recently saw the movie, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and believe me when I tell you that this movie was really funny. The movie starts off with four high schoolers named Spencer, Fridge, Martha, and Bethany all getting detention and finding a video game cartridge called Jumanji connected to a console. They end up picking characters, and in doing so, they get sucked into the game. Spencer had chosen Dr. Smolder Bravestone (who is played by Dwayne Johnson) while Fridge had picked Franklin “Mouse” Finbar (who is played by Kevin Hart). Martha clicked on Ruby Roundhouse (who is played by Karen Gillan) and Bethany pressed Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon (who is played by Jack Black).

Once in the game, they realize they only have three lives, and if they use them all, they actually end up dying with no way of getting back to the real world. Armed with this knowledge, they find that they have to work together, something they would never have done in the “real world.” Throughout Jumanji, they get involved in a lot of mishaps and some funny moments. You’ll expect a lot of humorous sayings from Bethany, considering she used to be a popular teenage girl and is now stuck in an middle-aged man’s body along with Fridge who used to be this tall football player and is now short and has a weakness of cake. Spencer is still awkward, even in a muscular adult body along with Martha since she can’t really flirt and is not used to showing off skin. But all in all, I found Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle really enjoyable, and I think that you will, too.
