We finished all of Jungle Book 2 tonight. It wasn’t bad, but as I said earlier, Kipling is assuredly rolling in his grave. The highpoint for me was the closing credits, which featured Smash Mouth’s awesome ska-punk-swing-hip-hop cover of “I Wanna Be Like You”, which was probably my favorite song from the original movie. When I was 18 and planning on being a professional rock star, I thought “I Wanna Be Like You” would be such a cool song to cover. I had forgotten about until Smash Mouth’s rendition.
Is it just me, or John Goodman probably making a mint off Disney right now? I think he’s a voice in every Disney made these days.
