#4 Jumanji

Original Release Date: Jumanji was released on December 15, 1995.

Box Office Earnings: Worldwide, Jumanji collected $262.7 million ($100.4 million domestic, $162.2 million international), the budget was a reported $65 million. This number may seem small due to the film’s large success and being such a classic and beloved movie, but ticket prices were not the same in 1995. And a following for this movie built up over the years after Jumanji left theaters.

Critical Acclaim: Jumanij is further proof the critics aren’t always right. At Rotten Tomatoes, this movie only scored 53%, dividing critics. However, it’s number four on our list for good reason — Jumanji is one of Robin Williams’ most popular movies. It recently received the reboot treatment with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and that movie paid tribute to Williams’ character Alan Parrish. Sadly, it didn’t receive any nominations.

About the Role: Alan Parrish is trapped in a board game for 26 years years, only to be free and find the life he once knew is no more. Defeating the game may change things back, but it’s not like Jumanji is giving them any other choice.

Simply the Best: Check out those special effects! We’ve come a long way sense, but Jumanji ges an A for effort! Watching it today will give you all the nostalgic feels! The movie also stars Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, and Bradley Pierce.
