A very bad movie -- shouldn't have been PG.

A ragged comedy that features much more lame slapstick action than bouncing beast.

Likable but negligible.

Brainless and inane, this is for undemanding kids only.

Parents beware: this film is too crude, violent and offensive for younger viewers.

Oh, how I wish I didn't know 'Jack'.

It's a thin, tedious caper only notable for its impressive Outback locations and a cameo from Christopher Walken that proves the word 'no' isn't in his vocabulary.

No one seems to have any idea whether this is an action movie, a comedy, a kid's movie or perhaps a bizarre experiment in kangaroo torture.

Remember when Jerry O'Connell had a future?

A competent and workmanlike action-adventure romp for kids, briefly enlivened by a funny cameo from Christopher Walken.

The movie is crap, but no more so than you'd expect from something with [i]Kangaroo Jack[/i] on the title card and Jerry Bruckheimer's name under the producer credit.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

If you can imagine how painful it would be to wander aimlessly lost for days on end through the Australian outback, that's how the eighty-nine minutes of this film go by.

David McNally basically made a mob comedy, realized it wasn't funny and then added in computer-generated shots of the kangaroo that didn't require paying actors for reshoots.

O personagem-título aparece pouco ao longo da projeção: se somarmos todas as suas cenas, é possível que o resultado não passe de 15 minutos. E se estes 15 minutos já são ruins, imaginem os 75 minutos restantes...

If only Walken had met up with the kangaroo...

Parents may find themselves growing tired of the immature undertone, but the charismatic odd couple of O'Connell and Anderson is enough to emphasize the film's light-hearted feel.

I'm sorry to say that Kangaroo Jack is top of my 2003 'worst list' so far.

Luckily, Australians can't take offence at the lame Aussie "you'd be a banger short of a barbie" stereotypes, because the American characters are just as puerile.

Tie this kangaroo down, sport -- before he makes a sequel.

Does anyone really think lame scripts like this make good movies?
