Jumanji: the Next Level can feel a lot like the first level all over again. Committed actors and plenty of laughs make it likable nevertheless.
Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), journalist for a magazine with anger and resentment towards his father (Chris Cooper). Gets an assignment to write a piece about Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks). Lloyd is used to not writing not so great things about those he interviews.
Which is why not so many people want to work with him. Fred sees that as someone he can help see the brighter side of life. I like how Lloyd is pretty much the one being interviewed. Also that Mr. Rogers is his shrink pretty much. Since Lloyd has no faith in humanity, he thinks he can find his dark secrets. Which is frustrating because Fred has none.
Tom Hanks is fabulous and Oscar worthy. Just like when Hanks played Walt Disney. He makes you wish the film was more about him and that he had more to do.
Willy Wonka but with books and it works. This is a lot of fun for the whole family.
The first film is easily the best of this trilogy. This sequel is cute and better than part 3. However it's about as unnecessary as when Disney made sequels to the Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.
The film is silly. Yet, Alicia Silverstone got me through it.
