Genre Guesstimation – Jungle 2 Jungle (1997)


The idea behind this feature (Genre Guesstimation) is for me to watch a bunch of new movies (or ones that I haven’t seen many times) from the chosen monthly GG genre in order to expand my knowledge of movies within that particular genre.

This month’s genre has been chosen by Marc of French Toast Sundays and we will be reviewing our favorite Live Action Disney Films.

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of Nov by sending them to disneylivemarc@movierob.net

Tnx Marc!

Try to think out of the box!

Let’s see if I felt that this movie would be worthy of being in the company of my others favorite movies in the genre of Live Action Disney Films…….

“[showing Mimi how to use the toilet] Before you pee, you lift the seat; after you pee, you put the seat back down. Females in tribe start war over this. Many deaths.” – Michael Cromwell

Number of Times Seen – 1 (11 Nov 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A businessman travels to a far off island to get his estranged wife to sign divorce papers so he can get remarried, but she has a surprise for him.

My Take on it – Terrible film that isn’t funny in the least.

Tim Allen is an amazing comedian, but his performance here is atrocious because he isn’t given anything to really work with.

The whole premise feels far too absurd and far-fetched and that doesn’t help make things any more enjoyable to watch unfold.

The aspects of the film that should be funny, fail to illicit any laughter because it all is presented in a horrendous way.

Even taking into account that this is a Disney movie aimed at kids doesn’t help because of the silliness of it all the whole way through.

None of the characters are likable at all and that also makes it so much more difficult to want to like or even care about any of them.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – An entire day’s worth of film was lost when it was believed to have been accidentally left in a New York City taxicab. The film was never recovered. (From IMDB)

Genre Grandeur Worthy? – Not even close… this was horrendous

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
