Consensus: This inferior rehash of The Jungle Book should have gone straight to video.

Laura Sinagra
Village Voice

John Goodman's Baloo admits, 'King Louie? He split!' Before the third defibrillation of 'Bare Necessities,' you and your kids might too.

That scratching sound you hear isn't Baloo the bear rubbing against a tree, it's Disney scraping the bottom of the sequel barrel with a follow-up that has none of the charm or creativity of the original.

[Blu-ray Review] A minor work from the Mouse House, but Disney enthusiasts will still want to pick up this high-definition package for the stupendous picture and lossless audio upgrade. They know who they are, and for them this Blu-ray comes recommended.

Wait for it to come out on video, it'll baby sit a four-year-old. Anybody else is gonna be bored by it.

Likely to provide 72 minutes of enjoyment and a few scary thrills to tykes, as well as a pleasant diversion for parents.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Ok for kids, but not the most inspired sequel.

Not bad of a sequal, but in the theaters?! COME ON! We already know it wasn't going to be a success which didn't surprise me, I wish this was made… More

Although a nice conclusion for the characters, this is a very short and embarassing attempt at a sequel.
Sylvester Kuo
Not as good as the original, and didn't really add anything new to it. Not funny enough for a kids, musical numbers were only at passing grade. Conclusion:… More
