Overview

A man finds the son he never knew he had, and a boy discovers a city he never knew existed, in this comedy. Michael Cromwell (Tim Allen) is a commodities broker who deals in coffee beans; while on a trip to Brazil, Michael is abandoned by his wife, Patricia (JoBeth Williams), an anthropologist who decides to stay behind to study the indigenous tribespeople of the area. Fourteen years later, Michael has decided to marry his new girlfriend, Charlotte (Lolita Davidovich), but since he never formally divorced Patricia, he must go to Brazil, find her, and get her to sign a divorce agreement. Once he arrives, he discovers that there's a bit of a complication -- Patricia was pregnant at the time she left Michael, and she is now the mother of a 13-year-old son, Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington). Mimi-Siku is about to undergo the manhood rituals of the tribe that adopted Patricia and himself, and when the leader discovers that the boy's father has arrived, he insists that Mimi-Siku should return to the "Stone Island" of Manhattan to get to know his dad. Arriving in New York City with a loincloth and a blowgun, Mimi-Siku has a lot to learn about living in contemporary America. Charlotte is not too happy about discovering that she's about to be a stepmother, while Richard (Martin Short), Michael's business partner, wishes the boy wouldn't eat the tropical fish from his aquarium. Jungle 2 Jungle is an Americanized remake of the French comedy Un Indien Dans la Ville.

This is the story about a guy who finds out he has a son named Mimi Siku that has been raised by natives in the amazon and visits new york. He even falls for the daughter of his dad's friend. I just love that spider where if you scream then he comes at you. It was hilarious with the girlfriend who tries to hit the spider with her toothbrush LOL. One of my fave scenes was the near the end where they fight off the bad guys and the spider was on the bald guy's head when he looked in the mirror. LOL. The ending was nice. I just wish I saw this in theaters.

You have a guy name Michael who wants to marry his girlfriend but hadn't divorced his first wife yet. So he travels to Brazil where she works. Once they meet however he's told that he has a son called Mimi-Siku. Later, he and Mimi Siku head back to New York so the father and son can get to know one another. From there you get some pretty funny and heartwarming moments which include a certain spider, while Michael is in Brazil, dancing in the park and the ending. Martin Short was pretty good in this too, especially near the end. Overall a great family film.
