Saw the Jumanji remake/reboot, and it’s every bit as fun and enjoyable as its promising trailer hinted. It’s pure popcorn fun, all of us laughed out loud several times, and the casting is excellent. Jack Black, in particular, crushes it as a teenage girl trapped in the body of “an overweight middle aged man.” If you have small children who are unaware of the birds and the bees and puberty issues, be warned some of that subject matter is in the film. After all, these are high school kids trapped in the game this time, and not small children like in the original back in 1995. But overall it was one of the most fun times we’ve had at the movies this year.
