5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back, zany adventure! May 6, 2003
Here's one of those special movies that remind us of the better old-time adventure films, where everything fits together to give us just the right level of enjoyment, suspense, and humor. Many a modern "action" film depends on pushing the action to ever more extreme levels to entertain us with something new. But all too often that is symptomatic of a void in what else the movie has to offer. But this movie doesn't need that. It keeps us entertained because the protagonists are likeable, never boring, and they have adventures that are funny to boot. A stepson of a mob figure is sent with his buddy to Australia, to deliver a payment for a routine mob transaction, or, so he and his buddy think. But there are surprises awaiting them there, and the plot will keep you wondering as it plays out, as they encounter one misadventure after another, from a kangaroo they run over and presume to have killed, to a plane ride they won't soon forget. But I'll say no more. See and enjoy to find out how it all plays out in the land down under.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute, and ultimately good fun January 25, 2003
The Kangaroo sold me in the commercials. So did Jerry O'Connell and Anthony Anderson, so I gave the movie a chance. It payed off. This movie was adorable, good clean fun. Besides the camel flatulence and one other racy joke, the PG rating is totally appropriate. Kids should really enjoy this, and for adults, the two stars should hold their attention. And the Kangaroo... well he's fun for everybody to look at.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lowbrow comedy, sometimes funny January 28, 2005
When lifelong friends Charlie Carbone (Jerry O'Connell) and Louis Booker (Anthony Anderson) accidentally get mixed up in the mob, they are forced to deliver a large sum of money to some shady characters in Australia. When a wild kangaroo "steals" the money before it can be delivered, it's an all-out race to catch him to get the loot back before the mobsters find out it's missing. Silly slapstick ensues, but Anderson and O'Connell make a good comedy team.

A mix of real and animatronic kangaroos were used.

1.0 out of 5 stars They Call This a Children's Movie??? July 2, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Well, I'm no professional movie critic, but I do spend lots of money on going to the movies with friends and family. This movie had to be a waste of some hard-earned money for me. I went with 2 other single parents and their children to see this movie. We have all made a commitment not to take our children to PG-13 movies so we thought this would be ok. It had its moments of humor, and the kangaroo is pretty well animated, which is why our kids wanted to see it. At times I almost forgot it was computer-generated. But I felt greatly deceived at its PG rating. Aside from being boring at times and over-the-top rediculous, the violence and sexual innuendo were too much for me. I have an 11-year-old boy who's eyes opened wide at the sight of Jerry O'Connell's character putting his hands on the female co-star's breasts, when he thought she was a mirage...then there was the steamy scene in the waterfall. With barely a wet t-shirt and underwear, this female co-star left little to the imagination, along with the passionate kissing and embracing going on between the 2 characters. This movie was not at all appropriate for impressional young minds, not to say that it was pure sexual solicitation that was unnecessary for this movie. Good movies are becoming so rare these days. These crass movie makers must think they need to offer sex and violence in a kid's movie in order to get us in a theatre. The reason I gave this movie a rating of one star was because they didn't have a zero. Don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars No dozing for Daddy, kids were happy February 10, 2003
The 4 stars are what a kid would rate this, not an adult. This was a charming movie for the apporpriate audience: about 8-14 year-olds. The movie starts a little slow (the kids are waiting to see the kangaroo!) but will ultimately grab their attention. There are a couple of non-graphic sexual comments or scenes that made me a little uncomfortable for my kids, but nothing too out of line, (one of the characters thinks he is seeing a mirage and fondles Estella Warrens' chest, and later there is a waterfall scene, neither were way out of line, but a little unnecessary. The Dad's will like it though.)There is also some fighting and violence, and a drinking scene in a bar that made me suggest that the movie may be inappropriate for younger kids. Having said that, my 4-year old thought this was a great movie. The story is reasonable, a little predictable for adults perhaps but children will be able to follow and laugh. There is the mandatory fart humor (it won't be a kids movie without someone or something cracking off a couple of loud ones), the kangaroo looked very real, and yes, he does do some rap and a little talking. The rest of the humor leaned toward slapstick, so leave Mom at home and have Dad take the crowd. I (as the responsible parent) stayed awake the whole time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is it Truely a Childrens Film, or even a family film? January 18, 2003
Kangarro Jack is for the record a funny movie, but not PG funny. Has movie ratings gone so soft that a movie that clearly would of been PG-13 less than 5 years now only a PG movie. Not sure what I am talking about, let me explain.
Kangaroo Jack is about a group of buds who lose $50,000 to a Kangaroo. Now the back story is that JErry O'Connell is a hair stylist!? who step dad (Christopher Walken) runs a mafia inside of NEw York. After his bud screws up a job for Walken they are given one last chance at redemption. A simple job that requires delivering $50,000.00 to a client in Australia. Along they way the end up losing the cash and are being pursued by the mafia and the client. THeir only hope is to get the cash back. Along the way they meet the hot chick who helps them catch the Kangaroo.
Now here is why I say that a few years ago this would of been PG-13. Lets start with the obviouse, language. FOr a movie targeted towards children there sure as hell is a lot of profanity, toilet humor, and sexual dialouge. Here is an example of a funny line, but not an approriate one for a kids movie "We are experienceing an intimate Non Gay Moment". Then there is a scene where the hot chick is washing off some berry juice (One of their tactics to try and catch it) and the way the scene is shot, the shadows imply that she is topless. But then we see it is only a wet T-SHirt. IT is also at that point that she and JErry O'Connell start making out.
These are just a few examples of why this movie is not a PG movie, and even if it is it sure as hell is not for kids. The movie is funny, but I would not take kids younger than 12 to see this.
