The Jungle Book

A live adaptation of Disney's successful cartoon deviates enough from the cartoon to make watching this film worthwhile if you have all ready seen the original. It was, indeed, very well made with an excellent cast. However, I had a slight problem with some of the script that made this film too corny and unrealistic. It's a good pick for older children (it may be too scary for the youngest kids, however.) The animals are cute and fun to watch.
