The Sydney Sunday Telegraph on Christmas Eve 2017 has a review by Vicky Roach of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
Under the headline, “Reboot a walk on the wild side”, Roach gave the film three stars and the verdict of “Game over”.
My wife Karen Gillan’s name is included in the brief cast list of this review and for the character she plays that of “a butt-kicking heroine” and a picture of my wife Karen with her co-stars in the movie accompanied this review.
Elsewhere on this paper is an interview with cast member Jack Black about playing a 16-year old girl transported to a man’s body with Black being the man.
This is accompanied by another picture of my wife Karen, Black and their co-stars in the movie.
This article written by Neala Johnson mentioned my wife Karen in the piece saying that she played “the timid bookworm in a kick-butt “killer of men” and quoted from my wife Karen about Black’s take on teenage girlhood.
My wife Karen said that Black’s take on teenage girlhood was “alarmingly accurate” and in fact she had to be reminded that she was the only female on the Hawaiian set.
My wife Karen then says that Black “somehow grounds it in such reality that I totally brought into it.”
