    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I consider this movie as one of my all time favourite movies, and also Robin Williams as one of my favourite actors.

    This is the story of Alan Parish who finds a board game, which unknown to him releases the inhabititants of the game, depending on the role of the dice.
    While playing the game with a girl called Sarah from his street, they both decide to stop playing the game, but Alan un-wittingly throws the dice, and the game punishes him, by sucking him into the game with the message ' In the jungle you must wait, till the dice reads five or eight'.
    Many years later Judy & Peter who have moved into Alans house, find the game, and begin playing it, and Peter eventually throws an eight, thus releasing alan from the game.
    What follows in an action paced film, with great special effects.

    If you want to watch a great film then get this one.

    I saw this movie when it first came out and I loved it! Saw it many times over on TV, always entertaining! It's 2014, just saw it again with my 11 years old child and she loves it, too! Great entertaining movie that doesn't age! Fun, entertaining, and everything else! Full Review »

    No logic to be found. This movie has a terrible script to go along with a story that is very poor. It is action packed but it has many problems. For instance it is raining and flooding inside the house. Here's an idea, go outside. This type of thing happens often in this movie and creates some humor that the movie has no intention of creating. It is a fun watch but has many flaws -- 46.8 out of 100 Full Review »
