Have you ever played a board game that’s tried to kill you? Well that’s just what happens to Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst (and to a lesser extent Bonnie Hunt and some other kid) in 1995’s family adventure film Jumanji. Directed by Joe Johnston, who gave us other classic family fare such as The Rocketeer and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, it was a box office smash, spawning a TV cartoon series, and a real-life board game that supposedly doesn’t try to kill you. Does the movie still entertain almost 20 years later? Is this Robin Williams’ hairiest role? Who is awesomer David Allen Grier or LeVar Burton? We answer these questions and more (the answer to C is LeVar Burton) on this week’s Rewatchability!
