Remake of French farce released as "Little Indian, Big City," changes little of the "wild child" premise. Workaholic Wall Streeter Michael Cromwell (Allen) decides to finalize the divorce from his long-estranged doctor wife, Patricia (Williams), who happens to have been ministering to a tribe in the Amazon rain forest for many years. He gets more than the divorce when he meets the 13-year-old son, Mimi-Siku (Huntington), he never knew he had. Although the boy speaks English, he's been raised as a tribal native, which causes quite a culture shock when he returns with Michael to the jungles of Manhattan. Of course the kid's more than a match for any situation.

The hilarious comedy Jungle 2 Jungle hit theaters in 1996. This movie has 105 minutes of fun comedy and has a rating of PG. Michael Cromwell (Tim Allen) is a New York broker and is very a very successful man. There, he has a fiancé. There’s just one problem, he needs to divorce his first wife, Dr. Partricia Cromwell (JoBeth Williams), whom he hasn’t seen in years, before he can remarry! Michael heads out to where Partricia lives, which is deep in the jungles of Venezuela. There he learns he has a 13-year-old son Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington), that he never knew about! The boy was at the age that he had to go on a quest. Mimi-Siku asked to go back to New York with his father to fulfill his quest. So on the two went, back to New York. New York was a complete different type of jungle for Mimi. There, the two bonded and formed a father-son relationship in hilarious ways.
