Trivia

When asked in a roundtable interview whether Parrish's father was like Robin Williams' own, the actor admitted a slight comparison. "He was a bit stern and kind of elegant," Williams said. However, the actor likened the disconnected relationship between Alan and his father to the fractured relationship between his dad and grandfather. "The wonderful thing about [my dad] is he would never force me to do anything ... because something had happened early in his life where he didn't want that to happen to me. He had to give up a dream," Williams continued. "His father had been very wealthy and when his father died, they lost all of that and he was forced to work at a strip mine in Pennsylvania ... When I found something I loved, [my dad] saw that ... That's what makes it nice, when you can connect on that level." See more »

I guess that life is a game of chance!
14 October 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

You know the drill: young Alan Parrish gets sucked into a board game called Jumanji, returns when a brother and sister are playing 26 years later, and has to battle the animals that wreak havoc on the town. It all seems pretty simple, but they play some neat tricks with it in the movie. As the adult Alan, Robin Williams is more subdued than usual, but still makes the character admirable. With good support from Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, David Alan Grier, Bebe Neuwirth, Jonathan Hyde and Patricia Clarkson, this is a pretty interesting movie. I will admit that the monkeys looked pretty fake, but we can't dwell on that in this movie; the point is to enjoy oneself while watching it.

Oh and one more thing: from "Jumanji", I learned the difference between alligators and crocodiles.
