What would you do for love? Well in "Jungle Shuffle" Many, a banished coati, is ready to risk his life to rescue his captured princess/best friend/love of his life, Sacha, who has been captured along with other stolen animals by a group of human poaches who were in the forest.
"AboutIt’s a jungle out there… Manu and Sacha are two young coatis living in the Mexican rainforest. They are deeply in love with each other! The only problem is that Sacha is the daughter of the coati tribe’s king and Manu is a bit of a troublemaker. When Manu’s escapades leave the tribe’s most worshipped statue destroyed, the King exiles Manu to live on his own in the jungle.
A year later the fumbling youngster has turned into a strapping young male but one thing hasn’t changed: Manu is still in love with Sacha.
When Sacha gets captured by human poachers, Manu sets out on a thrilling adventure to save the coati princess and redeem himself with the tribe."
I don't know about you, but I love it when I sit down to watch a movie with the kids and can pick out the voices of famed actors/actresses, who lend their voices to bring these kid-friendly movies to life. In this movie you will hear the voices of Tom Arnold, Drake Bell, Rob Schneider and Alicia Silverstone, who voice the main characters. Just knowing that Tom Arnold and Rob Schneider are part of the movie will give you the sense that this is a laugh out loud movie -- and, that it is! While there is a seriousness to the story, where Many is trying to find and rescue Sacha, you can't help but find him and his ninja monkey pal Chuy (voiced by Rob Schneider) having a few wild adventures of their own.
I wasn't expecting to like this movie as much as I have. But, it turned out to be a really cute movie, that is full of adventure and perfect for family movie night. If you are looking for a movie to watch with your kids this weekend, why not pick up Jungle Shuffle, which is available to own on DVD at most local retailers including Target and Walmart, as well as through iTunes Amazon.com.
