Story


Chris (Adam Brody) is a workplace weakling who doesn't have the balls to stand up to the slick office bully, Phil (Rob Huebel), who steals all his ideas, and he has yet to muster the courage to ask out cute HR manager, Lisa (Megan Boone). Even Chris' only friend, Jared, a sarcastic slacker IT guy who secretly monitors everyone's porn intake, slams Chris for being a pussy.

But when a team-building "wilderness seminar" goes horribly wrong, and unhinged ex-marine teambuilding coach Storm Rothchild (Jean-Claude Van Damme) gets mauled by a cougar - Chris and his co-workers find themselves stranded on a deserted tropical island with no rescue in sight... and someone's going to have to step up and take charge.

Phil quickly proclaims himself "God" of the island - but Chris has Boy Scout skills and would be far better suited to lead the group if he could overcome his fear - of everything. Can Chris finally man-up to Phil, release his inner-beast, get them rescued and win the girl? Or will Phil triumph, as usual, while Chris cowers like a bitch-boy?

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Van Damme's performance is about the only element left unscathed by the movie's compulsion to point out its own absurdity..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]
“..Welcome to the Jungle, directed by Rob Meltzer from a script by Jeff Kauffmann, is satanically bad..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]
