[tries to roll the dice, but the game board doesn't recognize it]
Alan, it's not working.
[inspects the game board]
Oh, no. It's not your turn.
Yeah, I rolled first and then Peter twice because he got doubles. Now it's my turn again.
No, look. Two of these pieces are yours, right? What about the other pieces?
[spots his old game piece]
The elephant was mine. You're playing the game I started in 1969. I'm going to have to play.
[Judy offers the dice to him]
It's not my turn.
Whose turn is it?

In Bradford, New Hampshire, in 1969, the bullied boy Alan Parrish overhears drumbeats and finds a boarding game called "Jumanji" that was buried one hundred years ago by two boys in the real estate of Alan's father Sam Parrish (Jonathan Hyde). Alan plays the game with his sweetheart Sarah Whittle and vanishes while Sarah flees from bats that have arrived in his mansion.
In the present days, in 1995, Nora Shepherd (Bebe Neuwirth) moves to the abandoned house that belonged to Sam Parrish with her orphan niece Judy Shepherd (Kirsten Dunst) and nephew Peter Shepherd (Bradley Pierce) that lost their parents in a car accident in Canada. They hear the drumbeats, find the Jumanji and decide to play the boarding game. They bring giant mosquitoes, monkeys, a lion and Alan Parrish (Robin Williams) back home twenty-six years older. Soon they discover that they need to finish the game to restore everything the way they were. But the game is too dangerous and brings different threats to them and to Bradford while they play.
"Jumanji" is a delightful adventure and family entertainment from the 90's. The story is original and the special effects are still great after twenty years. It is so good to see Robin Williams again and curious to recall Kirsten Dunst still a girl. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Jumanji"
