The Show is a movie that thinks it’s some kind of 21st century version of Network or something but instead it bangs you over the head, a bit too much even by satire standards, with its message culminating with a laughable last line.

The Jungle Book is a success in Disney’s obsession with adapting beloved animated movies into live action features and while the likes of Maleficent and to some extent Cinderella weren’t great, this one is entertaining for almost the entire family, though some scenes might be a tad too frightening for younger viewers.
