    Just the thought sends me into a deep depression. Really, stop before I start crying in class.

    We all can smell that Disney is begging for another Pirates type "boffo".
    I enjoyed National Treasure but I do feel that JC will be a cross between that and the Indiana Jones films which isnt that bad really.

    So here is to hoping! I have good faith in the Smallville crew!

    The mega win would have been casting Steve Erwin the "Crocodile Hunter" as the Skipper.

    As with any other ride-into-film, I'd be looking forward to the inside jokes:

    -African Bull Elephant?
    -Native Uprising?
    -Hippo Pool?
    -Return to civilzation?
    -Trader Sam?

    All seem like they could have a very comical effect in a film...

    The Haunted Mansion should have never been the comedy, or rather, the type of comedy it was.

    I'm just going to ignore the Country Bears - didn't bother seeing it, but from trailers and ads, it was grossly misguided.

    As for the Jungle Cruise, it needs to be comedy, but it needs to be purposely cheesy, but in a way that blends the exotic locales and fun time that the Jungle Cruise is. The success of Pirates of the Caribbean not only lies in the star power of Johnny Depp with eyeliner, but in the fact that it is the absolute perfect blend of comedy and action.

    If the Jungle Cruise movie wants to achieve this success, they need to find the perfect blend of comedy and action appropriate to the subject material.

    And Disney needs to refrain from making and marketing the film soley to family audiences. Pirates was brilliant in that it crossed over to everybody: children, adults, families, jr high, high school, and college students.

    The Jungle Cruise has the potential, but they need to find the right balance, the right actors, and the right script. Please, no more B-List Disney comedians. If Tim Allen, Eddie Murphy, or anybody in their league are picked to star, this movie will fail, fail, fail.
    Those were my feelings when I first heard that it wouldn't be a comedy...how can it /not/ be a comedy? Then I thought about how it would turn out if it were a comedy...MEH...

    Really, if you look at PotC, how much humor was in there? A ton, they packed it in every where...it was /wonderfully/ done...if they could do that with Jungle...I mean, make it action packed, and just throw in some whitty humor here and there...

    I know it could be done, and I hope that it is...

    Nope, the public isn't kind with pirate films... I think it is the popularity of Depp's performance that make this film work...

    The problem with Jungle Cruz is translating the camp... When it gets projected on screen it would go over board... and you end up satarizing yourself...

    No, I would do it more like POTC - and make the look of the film seem more serious, but have wimsical moments pop up here and there...
    A good study in the direction would be "The Gods Must Be Crazy" or something that looks like a twisted "True Life Adventure...."

    If I was directing the project, that is the route I would go in... But if you go total CGI effects, or with a contemporary script... I think you would ruin the film...

    Haunted Mansion could, no SHOULD have been a better film than it was... But I thought the script didn't have legs...
