Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’sJungle Cruise is an adventure-filled, 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.

  1. I saw this one over the weekend in theaters. It was alright. The brother character was super annoying the whole time. I was expecting the Rock to play the Rock but Emily Blunt was also basically acting as Emily Blunt. They also went overboard with the CGI.

    The story was pretty interesting tho.
