Movie Info

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever -- High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

  • Those who have grown up with Dora should enjoy the reunion and a new generation will probably be just as entranced.

  • Suffice to say that this film is keenly aware of its origins and their essential absurdity.

  • Moner's layered comedic performance, which at once nods at the "Dora" formula while acknowledging the conceit, is deceptively difficult and nuanced... delightfully dorky, a rare commodity in this day and age of sarcastic, wise-beyond-their-years teens.

  • If by some chance the kids corral you into this Jumanji rip-off, at least see it all the way through the spirited, semi-reparative closing credits number.

    Aug 10, 2019 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • If only every big screen adaptation of a beloved existing property could feel this funny and fresh, there'd be less to fear about an industry besieged by recycled material that never takes a risk.
