This was actually good.  Shame that John has probably already made up his mind about it before seeing it.  Also there's definitely some scenes that he'd call "mean-spirited."

What score would you give it, for reference?

Probably a 7.5/10.  Maybe an 8.
Goodbye!

1) Just because I think a movie looks terrible and I expect it to be terrible doesn’t mean I want it to be terrible. I expected Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to be bad and I came out pleasantly surprised.

2) You seem to keep forgetting that when I criticize a comedy for being mean-spirited, I criticize it for being needlessly mean-spirited.
Everything is terrible.

Indeed, and you'll call this film "needlessly mean-spirited."  In fact, helicopter parents across the world are already calling the film that.

That allergy joke sounds dumb as bricks, but I wouldn't boycott it over that like others are doing.

Did this have any LGBT stuff in it? I ask because in the Isle of Dogs theater, there was a dad with a young girl who had a Peter Rabbit popcorn bucket. I overheard that Peter Rabbit apparently got 16+ rating. Usually, that only happens to such films if the Ministry of Culture finds gay propaganda in them (i.e. Beauty and the Beast, Power Rangers, etc.)

I saw it twice and saw no LGBT stuff.  HOWEVER, I am often tone-deaf to that type of stuff because I just don't care, but I'm pretty sure there weren't any shoe-horned agenda stuff that I could identify.  Jake and Frank also saw it, so they might be able to corroborate or correct my reply.
