QUICK TAKE:
Adventure: Four high school students find themselves in new avatar bodies when they accidentally are sent into a video game and must complete a challenging task before it's too late.
PLOT:
Spencer Gilpin (ALEX WOLFF) is a geeky high school student who'd rather play video games than interact with others, although he's been bullied into writing papers for class jock Anthony 'Fridge' Johnson (SER'DARIUS BLAIN) so that the latter can remain on the football team. Martha Kaply (MORGAN TURNER) thinks anything sports or gym-related in high school is a waste of time that should otherwise be used for education, while Bethany Walker (MADISON ISEMAN) is more interested in looking good in person and in social media.

All four end up in detention where they come across on an old video game called Jumanji. When they activate it, they're magically sucked into the video game's jungle setting where they appear as physical avatars quite different than their normal selves. Spencer has become the tall and muscle-bound Dr. Smolder Bravestone (DWAYNE JOHNSON) while Fridge has turned into the diminutive Moose Finbar (KEVIN HART) who possesses neither speed or strength. Martha, on the other hand, has become Ruby Roundhouse (KAREN GILLAN) who's proficient at martial arts, while Bethany is horrified to discover she's become a middle-aged and overweight zoologist, Professor Shelly Oberon (JACK BLACK), who also just so happens to be a man.

Greeted by game moderator Nigel (RHYS DARBY), the four learn that they must find and return a large jewel to a towering jaguar statue to save Jumanji before time runs out. With the help of a neighbor who was sucked into the game two decades earlier, Alex (NICK JONAS), they set out to accomplish the task, but must contend with the villain who originally stole the jewel, Van Pelt (BOBBY CANNAVALE), who now controls all of the animals in the jungle.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The video game angle might be enticing to some, while fans of anyone in the cast might also be interested in seeing it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For adventure action, suggestive content and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
