Those who found the first one a bit ridiculous, will find the second one just what it says: outrageously fun! It has a story line, and an actual plot, the first one seemed to lack.
Without saying exactly how, I can tell you that the trials and tribulations of Jumanji bring out the best in these self-absorbed participants, who discover friendship and self-sacrifice; and that the qualities of faith and mercy are truly unstrained.
It is a wonderful story about courage and triumph in the face of dangerous, impossible, and deadly odds, draped with video game humor and shock appeal.
If you are looking for a family fantasy, rated PG, and an inconsequentially good time for all, with some valuable lessons on life in general, you will not want to miss Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle!
