Critic's Pick

'Jungle 2 Jungle'

January 25, 1998|Kevin Thomas

A charming and funny 1997 remake of the French hit "An Indian in the City," it fits Tim Allen (left) like a glove while retaining everything that made the original such a delight. Allen plays a workaholic Wall Street commodities trader who makes a rush trip to the Amazonian jungle to complete his divorce from his long-estranged wife (a wryly amused JoBeth Williams). What he could never anticipate was that he would be returning home with their 13-year-old son, Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington, right), whom he never knew he had. The son speaks English but has been raised by his mother, a doctor, as an Amazonian native! (Disney Monday at 7 p.m., early Tuesday at 3 a.m., STARZ Monday at 8 p.m., Tuesday at 2 p.m.)
