Jungle 2 Jungle (1997)."Oh God! I'm dead! I've lost my house! Where will my children live?"

We're finally back! The start to 2024 has been hectic to say the least but we are thrilled to bring you our first episode of the new year with Jungle 2 Jungle from 1997.  It's another Tim Allen special complete with grunts, awkward jokes, weird laughs and what 90s movie would be complete without the debateably hot but always bitchy girlfriend.  Come scale the statue of liberty with us and remember if some weird jungle kid is trying to give you a pot he's not looking for dinner he's looking for something else to eat!

When he travels there to obtain the divorce papers, he discovers that he has a teenage son named Mimi-Siku who accompanies him back to America to learn the ways of the urban jungle.

Not a super stacked soundtrack by 90s movie standards but here are a few samples.



Get a little savage.

  1. An entire day's worth of film was lost when it was believed to have been accidentally left in a New York City taxicab. The film was never recovered.

  2. This is a remake of the French movie Little Indian, Big City (1994). The plot follows the original fairly closely, except that the original was set in Paris rather than New York, and Mimi-Siku climbed the Eiffel Tower rather than the Statue of Liberty.

  3. The book Mimi-Siku reads aloud at the end is "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London.

  4. When Michael, Richard and Mimi-Siku are visiting Jovanovich after they ring the doorbell, Jovanovich yells "Open damn door!" then he says "Chort vozmi!", which in Russian literally translates to "The devil take it!"

  5. The laptop they are using in the beginning of the movie is a Compaq LTE Elite 4/75CX with Windows 95 on it.


You too can enjoy all the repetitive magic of Matika the spider over and over again on Disney+
