User Review

A funny, family-friendly film

Rating: 9/10

A remake of the French hit, "Little Indian – Big City", "Jungle 2 Jungle"
rises above the slap stick of the French original and the usual shallow
Disney live action to become an enjoyable, funny and often heart-warming
story, as much to do with father/son relationships as with a fish out of
water. Although Tim Allen and Martin Short are their usual good selves
here, Sam Huntington is the real star. An amazing young talent, he makes
"Mimi-Siku" believable and endearing, someone we relate to and care about.
It's Sam's performance that really lifts the film and makes it worthwhile to
children and adults alike.
