QUICK TAKE:
Adventure: Four friends who previously survived a trip into a video game find themselves back there again, but most now in new avatar bodies they must use to save the day before it's too late.
PLOT:
Not long ago, high school students Spencer Gilpin (ALEX WOLFF), Anthony 'Fridge' Johnson (SER'DARIUS BLAIN), Martha Kaply (MORGAN TURNER) and Bethany Walker (MADISON ISEMAN) were accidentally sucked into a video game called Jumanji. With the assistance of game moderator Nigel (RHYS DARBY), pilot character Jefferson "Seaplane" McDonough (NICK JONAS) and Alex Vreeke (COLIN HANKS) -- who had been stuck in that game for decades -- they managed to complete a dangerous task that not only saved the kingdom of Jumanji, but also let them return to their normal lives.

Those students have now gone their separate ways, with Spencer suffering that separation the most, what with him and Martha having put a hold on their romantic relationship. Accordingly, and upon returning for Christmas break to visit his mother, he ends up as roommates with his uncle, Eddie Gilpin (DANNY DeVITO), who's staying there recovering from hip surgery. Missing how he felt while in the guise of his game avatar, the tall and muscle-bound Dr. Smolder Bravestone (DWAYNE JOHNSON), Eddie breaks out the game and returns to it, only to discover that he's not in Bravestone's body, but instead has ended up in burglar Ming Fleetfoot (AWKWAFINA).

Back in the real world, Martha, Fridge and Bethany are concerned that he hasn't responded to their attempts to contact him and thus go to Spencer's mom's house where they not only meet Eddie, but also his former business partner, Milo Walker (DANNY GLOVER), who's shown up out of the blue wanting to patch up their falling out from long ago. All but Bethany end up sucked into the game where Martha is the only one to get her earlier avatar, Ruby Roundhouse (KAREN GILLAN) who's proficient at martial arts.

Fridge ends up in Bethany's previous avatar, middle-aged and overweight cartographer, Professor Shelly Oberon (JACK BLACK), Eddie ends up as Bravestone, and Milo ends up in Fridge's previous avatar, the diminutive zoologist Moose Finbar (KEVIN HART). Learning from Nigel that a new villain, Jurgen the Brutal (RORY McCANN), has stolen a gem pivotal to the existence of Jumanji, the friends and their new companions try to get used to their new bodies as they set out to save the day and return to the real world before they run out of game lives.

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!!!
