Fantastic Movie, A Bit On The Sexual Side

This was a genuinely fantastic movie. I liked the part where the king said, "Make it bigger! HARDER! HARDER! MORE! MORE!" I feel like this exemplifies American society as a whole. It just shows the rabid need, the rabid THIRST that undercurrents everybody These Darn Days. I also liked the part where he said, "Let me hug him, daddy!" This shows the pent-up yet HUGE pressure that we all face. This also shows how desire and compassion for others can beat this.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

A Korean venture with skillful vocal performances, Jungle Shuffle is a mostly successful composite of funny, endearing characters and extensive cartoon action. The human villains cover all the bases -- mad scientist (with German accent), savage hunters, and a greedy tycoon -- and only one man proves that he has a heart. On the other hand, those animals who are initially seen as enemies (a grief-stricken panther, a horrific dragon-monster, and a sugar-addicted monkey) are capable of redemption. Sadly, the female characters are reactive and rely on the males for their rescue and protection; the few times Sacha tries to extricate herself from a bad situation, she is unsuccessful. Because of the exaggerated nature of the scary visuals and ferocious sounds of some of the wild animals portrayed (a stealthy panther, a dragon-like monster, bats, a snake) as well as the brutality of the humans, the movie is best for kids comfortable with animated violence and danger.
