Real Disney Nostalgia

I watched this film as an adult, but it’s a real throwback to the old days of Disney, before things got complicated. It’s not forcing anything (except that one tiny kiss, kind of). I didn’t feel that the messaging was over the top, and the character interaction was excellent. The actors did a great job, especially with the double dutch, and they really seemed to enjoy it. It was a fun movie to watch. I definitely recommend this movie.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Jump In! is a thoroughly entertaining story about a teen learning about himself and what's important to him and asserting his independence from his father and peers. Filled with defining moments and clichéd-but-true words of wisdom, the movie takes a critical look at the challenges of shrugging off gender-specific expectations and shows how summoning the courage to be the odd man (or woman) out in a crowd can inspire others to change the way they think, too.

The strong cast is anchored by Bleu and Reivers, who deliver outstanding performances as a father and son striving to understand each other. And viewers of all ages will be amazed at the host of international Double Dutchers who lend their talents to this winning drama.
