Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank's questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila--his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities--possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate--and mankind's--hangs in the balance.

I watched Jungle Cruise on Disney+ with my husband and 20-year-old daughter. We all enjoyed it.
We've all ridden the Disney World Jungle Cruise so it was fun to see all the references to the actual Disney attraction. So many silly puns. The movie is a cross between The Mummy, Indiana Jones, and Pirates of the Caribbean. The opening scenes are more chaotic than anything, but the action evens out and is more enjoyable.

The humor is geared toward a younger crowd, but there was a cool twist that I didn't see coming!

I wouldn't pay the extra $30 to view on Disney+. Wait for it to be free there or wait till it is at a regular price On Demand. If you are going to the theaters, this is definitely a big screen type of movie.
