Funny and entertaining, not as good as the last one

Oh no!!! They used the GD word!! Approximately 6-8 times!!! I feel faint... Ok, now that we've got the stupidity out of the way, it's a PG-13 movie. Use your brain. If fart and poop jokes aren't your thing, why are you even considering watching a movie like this? Funny and entertaining, just like the title review said.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (112 ):
Kids say (129 ):

The return of the likable cast from the first movie and the addition of DeVito, Glover, and Awkwafina make this sequel an entertaining twist on the original -- and funnier than expected. In Jumanji: The Next Level, Hart is quite amusing while speaking in Glover's slower, more deliberate cadence, and even though The Rock's DeVito impersonation isn't always spot on, the gimmick works enough of the time to garner laughs throughout the film. Gillan carries most of the story as Martha/Ruby, who must be steadfast while everyone else, including athlete Fridge (in the unathletic avatar of Oberon), acts confused or frustrated. The game aspect isn't as compelling here as the characterizations, because audiences familiar with the first movie know that all will be well, despite the various fight sequences, killer animals, and puzzles to survive. At its heart, this franchise is about finding your people, your team: the unconditional friends who can help you overcome the toughest odds and the most perilous situations.
