The movie, in my opinion, is fine. Adventurous but will be scary for the really young kids. There was a spider and huge bugs in there, so if your child is scared of seeing spiders or big bugs like me, skip that part of the movie or don't watch it.

They said "stupid", "d*mn", and "h*ll" in it and it is MUCH more appropriate than Zathura in which they said "b*tch", and "d**k" in. It might be really scary for young kids because of the spiders, lions, monkeys (lol), hunters, typhoons, spiders, and quicksand but I liked it. I wasn't scared at all, :D.
to think "Jumanji's" my fav movie. It was, up until I saw "Forrest Gump," which is now my current fav. Also I watched "Jumanji" again after making this new account, (my old account on here was also "jumanji-lover" but with a hyphen) and realized it wasn't AS good as I remembered, but it's still a classic tween movie in my book. I love all the action, but always cover my eyes during the ENORMOUS tarantulas scene.
'Jumanji' is a great piece of popcorn-munching entertainment the whole family could enjoy. It's a really fun flick, full of family-friendly thrills and humor; although be warned: it is a bit dark for a family film. It's okay for kids who could handle 'Indiana Jones' or 'Star Wars.'
