Bungle in the jungle

IN a way, Disney itself is to blame. Buena Vista, a division of the same mighty mouse which brought us the 1967 animated classic, has produced a live-action version of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. And it's just not the same without Baloo the Bear singing The Bare Necessities.
