Let's all get one thing straight, the only reason anyone went to go watch this movie was because of the talking kangaroo from the previews, seriously (guilty). And yet, when the scene finally came into the movie, it wasn't even worth it.
I expected this movie to be hilarious, & was it? Fuck no! It's way too damn inappropriate for a PG rating, & the jokes in here are so painfully unfunny that they hurt my brain (the bathroom scene was the closest thing to making me laugh).
Plot/Story: The two main characters are heading into the Australian outback to deliver some money given to them by the main character's evil stepfather, in which this case, the money is illegal. THe two travel for a while, they then run over a kangaroo, they pick him up, dress him, & he wakes up, scaring them both & runs off with the jacket that had the money.
Now the two have to find 'Jack' (the kangaroo) & get the money back, which then turns the movie more violent & sexual for a PG rating. The film turns predictable after a while.
Effects: The CGI used for the Kangaroo was cheap. The scene everyone wanted to see him sing/talk wasn't even all that well done. It wasn't funny, nor worth it (just like Snow dogs). The scene lasted only a small amount of minutes, & the other characters from the movie which became kangaroos themselves in the mirage.
Acting: It wasn't all that great. It was decent, but not worth talking about.
Jokes: They're not even funny. The bathroom scene was the only worthwhile joke to listen to, but even that scene was unoriginal.
Actors/Characters: Jerry O'Connel is a great actor, but he usually plays an extremely idiotic character in the majority of his movies, & this movie is a prefect example to that. His character was unoriginal, & moronic. Then Anthony Anderson plays his usual, stupid, but comical character, but even he wasn't worth the movie. Then we have Christopher Walken, who is always an amazing actor, but tends to play an forgettable character. The rest of the cast & characters are forgettable.
Final summation, this movie isn't a family movie, it's too damn stupid, & inappropriate for kids.
