Jumanji: The Next Level brings the cast of the 2017 surprise hit, Jumanji (you can read my review here), back together for another bizarre adventure in an old video game. Yes, the cast is expanded by Danny Glover and Danny DeVito who frankly add nothing to the mix. The previous Jumanji had more humor and more surprises. This sequel creaks along until the team–Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black–start swapping bodies. Silly, but funny. The strong hint that another Jumanji movie might appear in a year or two doesn’t thrill me if it’s as mediocre as Jumanji: The Next Level. Save your time and money and skip this one. GRADE: C+

    Jackie says she will watch it when it gets to the pay channels. I agree, Karen Gillan, hubba hubba.

    The first one wasn’t bad. I had very low expectations, so got a fair amount of enjoyment from the cast.

      Jeff, the first SONY movie, JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, grossed $404.6 million in the United States and Canada and $557.6 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $962.1 million. It’s SONY’s biggest grossing movie ever!
