YMMV: Jungle 2 Jungle

  • Designated Villain: Charlotte; see Strawman Has a Point below.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: No movie, a man becoming visibly upset over the loss of his beloved pets is not just the most hilarious thing ever. Nor is freaking out an old woman by shooting the pigeon she was just feeding.
    • The repeated animal abuse in this movie just comes of as disturbing in general.
  • Fridge Logic: As funny as Michael Cromwell's new name is, how on earth does a remote tribe in Venezuela know what a baboon (an Old World monkey indigenous to Africa) is? There are several [at least 16] primates indigenous to that area such as the common woolly monkey, the red howler, spider monkeys or, if the writers required a better known breed, a few types of capuchin monkeys.
    • And how does a boy living in Venezuela for all his life stay so white? He should be heavily tanned at the least.
  • Genius Bonus: The book that Patricia helps Mimi read at the end is The Call of the Wild by Jack London.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the things Mimi does are unintentionally disturbing. The various animal-death scenes come to mind.
  • Romantic Plot Tumor: Most of the plot is centered around Mimi-Siku changing Michael's life, or Richard's dealings with the commodity stocks and the Russian Mafia. However, the plot completely stops for a few minutes so that Mimi and Karen can have a cute romantic scene at the pond.
  • Strawman Has a Point: We're supposed to hate Charlotte for being an uppity fashion designer who dislikes Mimi-Siku so much. However, from her point of view, she's just been introduced to a teenager with virtually zero social skills, who peeps on her in her bed while she's sleeping, and who lets his pet tarantula wander around freely. She does make an effort—even if a bit misguided—to befriend Mimi when she first meets him, but that niceness evaporates when he acts out of line. It also doesn't help that she seems genuinely sweet to Michael whenever the two are alone together.
