Disney's 'Jungle Cruise' really isn't bad at all
"Jungle Cruise" is the new Disney movie based on the ride Jungle Cruise and it’s...not bad?
At one point in the podcast Kpolly and I both say we would watch it again. It stars Emily Blunt and The Rock. It wants to be "Indiana Jones" mixed with "Pirates of the Caribbean" and, while it’s never quite either, it’s not exactly a failure and it’s often a pretty fun time. It blends legitimate history of Spanish conquistador Aguirre, The Wrath of God, with the charm of Dwayne Johnson, and even stays true to the deadpan humor that the Disney ride is known for.
Of course, we have some bones to pick and some surprising moments of praise, along with a conversation about what else we’ve been watching this week.
