ACCM review

This review of the movie contains the following information:

A synopsis of the story

The Jungle Bunch is a group of animals who are committed to creating peace and harmony in the jungle.  The leader of the Jungle Bunch, Maurice (voice of Philippe Bozo) is a penguin who looks like a tiger and was raised by his adopted tiger mother Natacha.  Maurice is assisted by his ‘son’ Junior, a goldfish (Adrien Solis) and his friends - Batricia, a fruitbat (Dawn Ford), Batricia’s boyfriend Gilbert, a tarsier (Laurent Morteau), and Miguel, a gorilla (Pascal Casanova).  Also assisting are Al (Emmanuel Curtil), a red frog, and Bob (Paul Borne), a green cane toad.

Similar to the previous movie, The Jungle Bunch (2017), the jungle is again threatened; this time, it is by a nasty beaver named Henry (Jeremie Covillault).  He has gained the formula for a pink foam (invented by Albert, a scientific armadillo who disappeared many years ago) which explodes on contact with water, and he has sprayed the foam over all the trees.  The Jungle Bunch knows that when the rainy season soon starts, this dangerous substance will destroy all leaves, leaving the trees bare and destined to die.

To prevent this occurring, the Jungle Bunch must locate Albert (Frederic Cerdal), who is the only one who can make an antidote to this pink foam.  Maurice and his friends decide to seek out Camelia (Leopoldine Sierre), Albert’s daughter, in the Far North, as she might know where Albert is now.  Once together, they all travel the globe by air, sea, and land, over snow, mountains and deserts in search of Albert.  Finally, they are successful in their quest, and so Camelia, Albert and the Jungle Bunch can travel on to France in search of the secret ingredient required to make the antidote to the pink foam.

However, assisted by a red bird who continually takes information about the Jungle Bunch’s journeys back to him, the nasty Henry now sends his most faithful servants, Serugei (Gauthier Battoue), a capuchin monkey, and Youri (Xavier Fagnon), a vulture, to thwart the plans of our heroes and to prevent them from completing their mission.


Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.

Animals in danger; Heroes and villains; Good versus Evil.

Use of violenceinfo

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.

Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.

There is some violence in this movie, including:

  • There is a great deal of violence between the animals, including martial art-type hitting and kicking, and the use of gun-type machines by beavers, Maurice and others.
  • Miguel thumps beavers over the head with his fist in Henry’s factory.
  • Serugei and Youri fire arrows into the Jungle Bunch’s flying machine from a gun-type machine, causing it to fall out of the sky.
  • A giant bear, Arnold, is pushed into shelves by Maurice and Camelia and falls from a platform onto Henry, who is pinned underneath.
  • There is fighting between Arnold, and Maurice and Camelia, and Camelia puts two feet into Arnold.
  • A beaver breaks Henry’s stick.
  • Henry is seen to hurl a substance at Camelia and her hand is blown off by pink foam.
